I've heard of Boingo. It works OK for the people I know. My internet service provider gives me free WiFi access as part of my telephone service. When I move into an RV I'll sign up with Boingo if they still exist. Boingo didn't have a data cap. They just had a $9.95 per month charge. Skype will cost much more at six cents per minute. If Apple gets Facetime out there as an open standard then the Skype (Microsoft) service will just not be necessary. Will Microsoft use back...
Last week I learned that Microsoft Live offers 25 Gigabytes of free online storage. I investigated it. On their page there is no mention of the amount of storage. Finding the right buttons and getting it set up was incredibly difficult. Once I had my account set up I tried using it. That too was very difficult. I successfully uploaded a file to test it. It was tedious but it got done. The file won't open in a browser when the link is clicked. It must be downloaded. On top...
Apple should make this a six or seven story building to handle future expansion. Since they probably can't create anything higher than four stories above ground, they should create two or more underground levels all around the facility. They could keep all of the top secret stuff down there.
Dell's real problem was using Android and also relying on Microsoft. Dell should have turned to the Linux community to create a better software system. It would have been closer to iOS than Android. Programmers are already experimenting with Linux on tablets. Eventually there will be a good free OS that will work better than Android that can be installed on tablets. Once one of them takes off, Android will be in trouble if they don't fix their OS so it can be easily...
To me the story wasn't clear regarding modems as wireless devices. Are all ISPs now including wireless connectivity? Mine has for years. My ISP modems only last about a year or so. If others are having the same longevity problems then that must be millions of new modems needed each year. I've read a report from somebody who is on his third Palm Pre because they just fail after about eight months. He keeps getting them replaced under warranty. His salesman said it is a...
It's amazing how some group of people who know how to create games are becoming wealthy. For every successful game made there must be hundreds that just didn't catch on. It's like they're the new rock stars because they had a hit. They had better cash out now while the product is hot. If they wait too long something else will take the place of Angry Birds and their value will plummet.
If the hardware is good on the HP then is the only problem with the software? Sure a plastic case isn't as good as metal but the insides are what count. Does the touch screen work well and look good? If it does and the internals are made of quality parts the the Touchpad will be a great device once the software is improved.
A new Italian sports car made by Lamborghini will have part of the chassis and body made from a new process to create carbon fiber parts. The parts will be injection molded instead of laying up layers of weave on top of one another and adding resin to bond them. This process could be utilized by laptop makers to quickly create very strong shells for their computers and not need milling machines. It would be much faster to make parts using injection molding technology...
If Intel wants to create an Ultrabook with similar dimensions and specifications to Apple notebooks and can't do it with a similar price, it has a choice. It can choose to create notebooks with Linux. It isn't free for manufacturers but it is way cheaper than Windows. Doing this would make the Ultrabooks price competitive with the Apple notebooks. Imagine Intel being the impetus for Linux to take off. The number of developers that would flock to it would be amazing....
All companies that want to stay in business do market research. So does Apple. There is a feedback page for every Apple product. Bugs can be reported and there is also a feature request on the drop down menus of each page. When I say smaller phone I mean something like the HP Veer. Thinner doesn't seem smaller to me. http://www.webosroundup.com/2011/05/...-video-review/Making a phone slimmer is OK but not as impressive as making it smaller in all dimensions. Who wants to...
