Photoshop for Mobile Phones? God, why?

September 25th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
T-Mobile lifting the 1GB limit on Android phones. China phonies up rocket launch. Ridiculous. Oldest rocks on earth found in Canada. Slingbox Pro-HD released. Dell finally going to LED backlights in laptops. Is this taking forever or what? Dell also says things are looking up. HP laying off 9300 people overseas. Craig Mundie says the cloud is the future but won’t say why. Visa plans applications for Google and Nokia phones. Adobe Photoshop for cell phones? Cripes. EFF suing USA. tech5

Smart Grid to Kill Cloud Computing. Ha.

September 24th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Android phone news never-ending II. Look for new term: "Radical Openess." New phone will unlock your car (and everyone else’s?) No indictment on the Sarah Palin hack. Sun’s solar winds hit 50-year low. SanDisk story about its new music distribution scheme keeps coming. NBC will rig set-top box for GE TV. Hmm. Microsoft has its own bus lines. IBM on the no short list. What a crock. Hubert Chang says he was a founder of Google. Cloud computing term is going to be replaced, you watch, with "Smart Grid." tech5

32nm Chips Coming Soon!

September 11th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
IBM thinks “cloud computing” is a bogus concept that is useless. IBM also working on voice-based web while working on a new chip consortium. No browser for Yahoo. Why didn’t they buy Netscape way back when? History would have been different. Google search share up to 71-percent. Google only track for nine months now. Text messages over-priced. Everyone is jacked up about iTunes8 and Spore. France Telecom may do an e-Reader. tech5

Microsoft Cloud Crashes

August 21st, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Microsoft to hire Jerry Seinfeld for TV commercials. Comcast has to fess up about P2P throttling or else. Microsoft PhotoSynth site rolled out. Servers go down immediately. This is cloud computing. Big Foot hoax getting funnier. WTC 7 collapse caused by fire. Poland out to get Microsoft. Plasma still good to go. tech5

25th Anniversary of PCjr

August 18th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Toshiba slips in a Blu-ray killer: a regular DVD player that outputs 1920×1080. Nice. I want one. NetRadio doomed no thanks to RIAA. Good idea, take music off the air. Dell loses Cloud Computing Trademark. Google getting sued over patents. Bigfoot declared a hoax. Highlight of the day: 25th anniversary of PCjr. My comments. tech5

August 05th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,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. Be careful if you are asked to upgrade your flash player. Hackers lurk. tech5
