440,000 Sony VAIO Recall

September 04th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Comcast tells FCC to pound salt. Sony VAIO 440,000 machine recall. Yikes. New Tivo to have a terabyte. Yay. Hard disks down to $189 for a terabyte. Michael on Facebook. Better than a blog? Or no? The little Dell laptop is out for $349. Huge patch Tuesday coming next week. CNBC doing a deal with LinkedIn and we can now expect content on LinkedIn. Chrome has weird security issue. Beware. tech5

Comcast Helping Vonage?

July 10th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
The trouble over the DNS poisoning continues. Will hackers take over the whole Internet? Maybe. I reminisce about Alternic from the olden days. Google working on a Second Life clone. Why not go the way of Microsoft and copy what other people do. New earthquake predictor coming? Comcast decides to work with Vonage to make VOIP work better. Good for them. Why is everyone worked up about the Dreamworks-Intel deal? Crazy people lined up for new Apple phone. Why? Why? Why? Sony does another fix for PS3. What is the Xbox360 Elite? tech5

Carl Icahn Has His nerve

June 06th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Carl Icahn demands Yahoo sell for $49.5 billion. Intel Anti-Trust woes spread as FTC takes a look. S. Korea already on the case. This was bound to happen eventually. CC free wireless Internet plan doomed to fail? I wonder. Creeping featurism to hit Gmail? Perhaps. My airplane anecdote tells of giant cloud. Comcast looking to deliver 100 Mbps sooner than later. I’m predicting metered service. Lame survey describes the obvious. tech5

Metering the Internet — Coming Soon

June 04th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Comcast may meter the Internet too. This I can guarantee. Someday the Internet will be metered just like water. Intel is pumping the Atom chip. Microsoft LIVE seems to be dead. Or at least it is a bad brand. Look for IE8 beta 2 in August. Bill Gates refuses to leave company. Walmart is going to revive and promote Blu-ray. Someone has to do it. Microsoft offered Yahoo $40 in Jan. of 2007. What?? Russians are behind the bot attacks coming from china. tech5

The Revenge of Mighty Mouse

May 21st, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Microsoft is now in the news too much. Gates still chattering about one thing or another. The company decides to bribe users to use their search engine. Microsoft Office not adding support for its own Open XML until Office 14. Apple and CBS sued over stealing Mighty Mouse name. Is Comcast irked over the set top boxes? GTA IV actor irked over only making $200,000 for doing voice work.University of TN prof. sending secret docs to enemies? Xbox360 copying the Wii style controller. tech5

Comcastic Speed

May 16th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Comcast upgrade works. Now I get as high as 22 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up. The numbers fall off when you go overseas. Apple rolling out 4 more non-exclusive iPhone deals. Yahoo being sued. It decided to conceal details for some unknown reason. Missouri woman now indicted for cyberbullying. Comcast still being accused of throttling bit-torrent. Sprint says 2008 WiMax. Yeah, right. I like the Aliph Jawbone. ASUS making all its motherboards "instant on!" Wow. tech5
