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

Will Google Buy Yahoo?

September 18th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Microsoft in the news over various reports about what they are going to do with their odd advertising campaign. John Hodgman clone coming. IBM going extra fast towards 22nm. Nobody has even done 32 nm yet! Rainn Wilson headed to Microsoft meeting. Oracle profit skyrockets, look for Tech rally. Hadron Collider not working. Google in love with Yahoo. eWaste a scandal. nVidia does big layoff. Amazon into a new content business. EFF sues Bush over wiretaps. 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

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

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

July 14th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Blackberry and Palm release new phones. Apple says it bought 1 million iPhones already. EU to regulate SMS roaming charges. Netflix looks like it is going on the Xbox360. It may never work out if the Net clogs up as predicted by at least one study. Load expected to be 100X worse. Icahn and Ballmer on Yahoo deal. But it’s not their company. Yahoo will reject any offer. Xbox360 to go to 60GB. IBM reveals 8-core Power 7 chip. tech5

Pioneer entering the Blu-ray disc market. Good. New words added to the dictionary including FANBOYS and MALWARE. Sony keeps updating PS3 software. They had better get the PS4 going fast! New canon camera upstaged by Hasselblad 50 Megapixel camera. Huge Kodak sensor inside. Latest Yahoo-Microsoft news getting weird. IBM will be paid by state of NY to keep employees. Huh? Orkut fabulous in India. Nokia wastes money on research. Guess what they found out? Listen and find out. 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

June 09th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Steve Ballmer says all content within 10 year will be IP-based. Laughable prediction. I mock thee! Apple new iPhone may be designed for video phonesex. iPhonesex? No Zune phone. Look for Snow Leopard as the latest for the Mac. Microsoft meanwhile working on a very bloated embedded OS. Yoikes! IBM does petaflop machine. WiMAX folks decide to share patents, finally! Carl Icahn becoming a pest. tech5
