August 25th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Microsoft versus Adobe. Silverlight versus Flash. Microsoft selling Avenue A. AMD selling TV chip business. IE will include Porn Mode. Microsoft looking at HD online video services. Cows line up North and south. Why? Mac Clone company for sale. People do not want VOIP on airplanes. Everyone going to game conferences. Gold farming worth $500 million. People not ready for digital TV. Is Google giving up the free food? tech5

Microsoft Hates Windows?

August 12th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Microsoft giving up on Windows. Looks like they are taking Midori seriously — Windows in the Cloud. Gates looks like he is still working to me! Worldwide Internet speeds leaves USA in the dust. We’re number 15 — woot! AMD pumping the 4870 X2. Two chips for the price of two chips. Gmail outage makes a black mark on cloud computing. Lenovo launches quad-core. Dell does an eePC. tech5

AMD to go Fab-less?

August 11th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
IBM says it shares a vision of Linux in 2018? Red Hat says Linux will all be in the cloud. AMD may go fab-less? Gartner warns of widespread slowdown in semiconductor sector. Google may be a big content provider? The computer beats a professional player for the game of GO. I find another 2012 story end of the world that year according to the nutters. Best Buy to have stores in the airport. Motorola leading US handset business. Microsoft wants Hollywood to save the Zune. tech5

40 Million credit cards stolen. Crooks busted, finally. Worldwide-scheme. IBM pushing the "Microsoft-free" desktop. Nobody is biting. Delta to offer Wi-Fi across entire US fleet. Sony grabs Rocketboom for exclusive distribution rights. PayPal co-founders investing in Space-X venture. AT&T now into Cloud Computing. Lenovo growing too slow. AMD versus Intel with new code words.

GM Gearing Up for Electric Car Era

July 22nd, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Apple looking better and better but margin cuts may hurt the stock price. I like the way Apple does updates for the Mac. TiVO and Amazon doing a deal where you can watch live TV and then buy a product that you see on the show out-of-the blue. People do not watch entertainment just to buy something. General Motors wants electric stations to be set up all over the country by the utilities companies. Esquire Magazine is going to use e-Ink for fancy 75th anniversary edition. Should be fascinating. iPhone selling for $1000 on eBAY. IBM selling off Lenovo shares. AMD is on the road to recovery. The ASUS eeePC become hot in the EU. tech5

Save Your Phone Books

June 18th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Microsoft getting deeper into the ad business by buying a TV advertising specialty company. Meanwhile they are unaware of potential China action. LinkedIn now worth $1 billion meaning the users are worth $50 each! Seems high to me. Firefox 3 getting mixed reviews, but I like it. Old phone books worth a fortune. Google dominates mobile search. So? GPU versus CPU debate begins. tech5

DB2 to Go Open Source

June 16th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
XM-Sirius deal on track to go through now that the FCC is on board. AP wants to set guidelines for bloggers. Unsure exactly what the guidelines should be though. Apple will do anything to not use Flash. I wonder why. I went to see the new teraflop GPU from AMD. Nice product. NetGear and Cisco about to start a price war. Cisco says Internet video will swamp the net. TOP story: IBM may make DB2 open source. tech5

Belgian Newsmen are Apparent Dolts

May 28th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Belgian newspaper people have got to be the dumbest in the world. Suing Google for getting them links and attention. Apparently the Belgians want no links or attention and cannot figure out how to prevent it. PC Magazine says Windows 7 is a threat to Vista. Windows 7 is still hot air. It will not be out until 2011. Some think that AMD has an opportunity. Look for the Norwegians to try to usurp the Nobel Prize with the Kavli awards. Geez. Tivo fails to keep up with Cranky Geeks. HP gets too much PR, I know why. Look for 8 MP on a cell phone? Agh. 8 MB of blur. tech5
