Will it be coming zune?

August 27, 2006

On friday Microsoft anounced that Toshiba will be manufacturing its new ‘ipod-killer’ Zune. The Zune will have a 3 LCD display, Wi-fi support(which may not even let you download music), and a 30 gigabyte hard drive. 30 gigabytes? Microsoft must be joking because no one is gonig to buy a 30 gig Microsoft player over a 60 gig Apple player. Well they might if Microsoft has a lot more features then it lets on. But otherwise its just another one tring to dethrone Apple.

AMD why!!!!!

August 26, 2006

Reasearches of Symantec discovered a virus that specificly attacks AMD built chips. The there are two of them. One attacks 32 bit chips and the other attacks 64bit chips. This means that Linux and mac could lose their imunity to attacks. Good news for microsoft bad news for world. These are proff of concept virus and thus wont be much of a threat. Or aren’t yet.

Apple Ipod Gen 6

August 24, 2006

What a wonderful season. Ipod season! Will steve jobs release a new version of the Ipod?What will it be? Will it be as exiting as the last five?

So many questions. So many ifs. So many so manies. Apple has been releasing new versions of the ipod every year. So what will this years be? Well it could be a more powerful nano(more storage) or an Ipod phone. Everyones been predicting an IPod Phone or IPhone for a few years now. And every year we were certain it was that year. Well with any luck it is this year. But I could also use a nano with 60 gigs. Or the other possibility. Will Apple release a new Ipod at all. Lets hope not.

Iphone(fingers crossed)

One laptop per student

August 14, 2006

Someone is finally taking the initaive. Thailand’s Prime Minister announced on 08/13/2006 is to provide a laptop to every single elementary school child. The laptops will be provided by ‘One Laptop per Child’. 30 are to arrive in october and in November 500 more are slated to arrive to Thailand and distributred to students. They say that if this project is completed every single elementary school child will have a laptop. You know the great thing? They will run Linux. Whats better than exposing all those kids to linux? The laptops will run on flash drives not HDD. Which is fine but then these laptop will have extremely limited space. It would be great if it works. I personally think this is just propoganda.
