This looks fantastic. Can’t wait. Put it on some solid hardware for under $500 and you have yourself a iPad killer.
“This is an out of control volcano of oil spewing up with 70,000 psi behind it, from a reservoir nearly the size of the Gulf, with an estimated trillions of barrels of oil and gas tucked away.”
Yesterday Apple quietly refreshed it’s laptop lineup. They added new chips, the 2010 Intel i5 and i7 but one thing that jumped out at me was the ability to get a higher resolution screen again.
They’ve dumped the antiglare ($50) option and instead its now antiglare + high resolution (1680×1050). In true Apple fashion it’s going to run you $150 for that upgrade but they may have ticked a couple more boxes that might convince me to upgrade.
Now if they could just do something about that razor edge.
It’s going to be a fun year watching all of the big boys battle it out, which in the end it can only be good for the consumer. Although (as most people know) I don’t care very much for the iPad I will hand it to Apple for innovating and making everyone step up their game.
While watching TV tonight I saw a Verizon ad for the Palm Pre Plus, there was one feature that very much cought my attention, that was the “Create a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever you are”. Palm’s site says…
“Turn your phone into a 3G hotspot for up to five devices.5 The Palm mobile hotspot app provides broadband Internet access for your laptop and lets friends or coworkers connect at the same time. It’s simple to set up and easy to use. And it’s like getting a phone plus a Wi-Fi router all in one. (Available on Verizon Wireless only.)”
Finally, I’m one step closer to unshackling myself from Apple. Now all I need is that sweet sweet subsidy.
I’m generally a fan of Apple products but I can not stand the direction they’ve gone with the iPhone and soon iPad.
Update: Aparently there are a few others that a pretty psyched as well because if you try to buy one you get a 502 Server Error.
