  • Apple giving up on ZFS?
    by Mike

    Those looking forward to a new storage format for OS X will be sorely disappointed. ZFS which was to be the successor to the current HFS+ sometime down the road appears to have been shelved indefinitely. As 9to5 Mac highlights a comment from ...
  • Protect Yourself: Make bootable install disc from your Windows 7 Student Upgrade download

    With so many of your precious memories and important files stored in digital only form, having a back up is always a good idea. Much the same way, having a way to quickly and easily re-install your OS in the event of a catastrophic meltdown is again, something worth acquiring. Students often get some pretty good tech deals due to the fact manufacturers realize the cash strapped state students often find themselves in. The bone they throw however small is often well received. Microsoft's la...
  • Access Else LiMo prototype phone shows off fan-like UI

    In the age of glitz and glam from the likes of iPhones and Android devices, LiMo, Androids cousin gets left out of the lime light. LiMo, which is a string of Linux, has so far suffered from slower adoption than it's once equally small cousin Android. Perhaps the Access Emblaze Else shown above can get that ball rolling hmm? The fan-like interface pictured isn't quite my style as it's a bit dark and bland. But you can't please everyone. What's your take? Does it need more work or are you di...
  • Steve Ballmer: “I’m happy with where Windows Mobile 6.5 is now”
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 10:02 am
    Only an idiot blindingly defending his company after he knows he and those under him failed would claim such a thing. The overall consensus on WinMo 6.5 is it still sucks while looking a tad prettier. In Gizmodo's multi-part interview with Microsoft's captain, Ballmer defends Windows Mobile saying he's "happy with where 6.5 is at now". But that isn't the only laugh inducing comment. No sir. Not by a long shot. Even more surprising if not ridiculous, he goes on to say that "at the end of ...
  • Windows 7 Whopper: 7 Pattiest of beef. 7 clogged arteries. Japan only.

    If you find yourself a local of Japan looking for something to eat on your fine Thursday afternoon and also happen to be in the festive mood due to Microsoft's grand release of Windows 7 today, why not kill two birds with one stone. Or you could sling a 7 pattied whopper at them. A joint effort between Microsoft and Burger King of Japan has created one of the more "tasty" marketing campaigns for Windows 7. The special editition Whopper features all the usual toppings of a normal whopper + 5 a...
  • Apple patent of doom: Ads becoming native desktop annoyance — God help us all.
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 5:55 am
    Think those one or two pop ads you always encounter when online are bad? That's nothing if a patent from Apple gains any traction. An OS full of annoying pop ads and annoying placement may very well soon be coming to your desktop. Though in the age we live, patents and copyrights have become more tools for preventing innovation and saving your ass from lawsuit by filing patents years in advance of a planned release...if a public release is even ever planned. Why ruin the desktop environment...
  • Android 2.0, 3G, WiFi, 5″ touchscreen and more coming to the Dell MID

    Don't you love it when rumors, particularly good rumors transgress from unicorn land into reality? That's a pretty easy one to answer. Of course you do. Details of an Android packing Dell MID will no doubt get you salivating like a fat piece of properly cooked steak. As far as details go, the device spied above comes with Android 2.0 (Eclair), WiFi/Bluetooth/3G WWAN, 5" 800 x 400 capacitive touchscreen as well as a dual-LED flash 5mp camera out back. The only thing leaving me concerned is y...
  • Google bringing their own Android phone to market (end of 2009)? Chrome OS netbook in 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted October 20th, 2009 at 1:55 pm
    Apple uses a totalitarian approach with the iPhone. Microsoft offers a mad grab for developers and hardware vendors alike. The two methods at which these two companies provide mobile services are complete opposites. Each have their pro's and con's. Apple's uniformed approach brings tight integration and unparalleled compatibility. Microsoft's approach with Windows Mobile allows a daunting list of choices as well as easier access for developers. Until now, Google has taken more or less th...
  • LiMo OS coming to the Samsung Protector i8320. Android scurries away in sadness.
    by Mike

    The "Open" movement rushing over the digital market place is hitting the mobile marketplace particularly hard. Android is a perfect example of this. Announced back in November of '07, Android took it's sweet time in '08 and early part of '09 turning into the OS that many had envisioned. Now as we are beginning to look at the end of '09 and start of '10, Android is singing a much different tune. Can you see what Android has done? They have more or less transformed a brand into a technology. ...
  • Android 2.0 gets pictured [BGR]
    by Mike
    Posted October 16th, 2009 at 12:14 pm
    All I can say is after looking at BGR's picture walkthrough of Android 2.0, I am now even more eager to make the jump. I think the bigger things that have me excited the most are the updated browser which he describes as this close to the iPhone 3GS's in terms of speed and rendering and the support for an initial wide swath of layers within Google Maps with room for many more to expand on. Not wanting to limit myself to a small part that makes the whole so intriguing, I can't deny the overall...
  • MorphOS lets Amiga loyalists party like it’s 1994 — Mac Mini support included.
    by Mike
    Posted October 15th, 2009 at 5:42 am
    The Amiga, once a platform competing neck and neck in the computing scene has since fallen by the way side. Long ago, relevance for this little known outfit was cast aside into the catacombs of society. But, the faithful few who still cling to the hopes of the AmigaOS one day taking over the world have a new tool in their arsenal. It's easy to assume that your typical user, heck even most geeks don't have a Power-PC based Amiga just laying around. Welcome to the wonderful world of Morph -- a...
  • It’s Official: Palm dropping WinMo. Focusing solely on their baby of love webOS.
    by Mike
    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 6:48 am
    In a move that was clearly obvious and needed if Palm was in fact serious about webOS's future, the boys in red (ink) have officially announced that going forward, all Palm handsets will feature webOS and webOS only. The announcement was made at Palm's earnings call likely in hopes to take everyone's mind off the vast amounts of red ink the company is going through. One thing is for certain however, Windows Mobile won't be seen lurking around Palm hardware anytime soon. Can't say I'm disapp...
