Brad Pitt Big Malware Lure

September 17th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Google Android secretly shown in London. Pics of phone all over the net. Company buys Valve software to develop games for the phone and online. Brad Pitt now the top malware lure. Sarah Palin more popular than porn. Meanwhile her email was hacked. NY to add RFID to drivers license. Luckily it is optional. Canon doing DSLR with 1080p movie capability. Nice. Xbox360 tops in Japan. Congrats. Kodak rolling out an OLED wireless photo frame. tech5

Onerous Google EULA Outrages Users

September 03rd, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Googlers try to sneak in onerous EULA. BUSTED! The company should be ashamed of itself. Web controlled door locks announced. Dumb idea. Xbox 360 to be reduced to $199. Corning warns of LCD glut. Sony raising the refresh rate of its LCD-TV. Why is the phrase “Upping the ante..” showing up a lot? tech5

Will Chrome lead to Google Linux?

September 02nd, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Googlers gah-gah over the Google Chrome browser. Will Microsoft be affected? I think not. Chrome is more of a competitor to Safari than anything else. I think it leads to the Google OS. Dell bringing out a ultralite notebook. WiMAX rolling in Baltimore. 802.11n still in draft mode? Why? GUN now 25 years old. Picassa to add face recognition. New iPods on Sept. 9? Looks like it. tech5

Computer Virus on the Space Station!

August 27th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Orange throttling iPhone 3G speeds. Why offer 3G if you do not want to deliver the product? D90 comes out but not seemingly as good as the Canon. My thoughts on Nikon versus Canon. Computer virus found on Space Station computer. IE8 getting more and more useless PR. Sneaky deal done between Microsoft and Immersion. Lawsuits abound. Dell explaining the Cloud Computing trademark debate. Cisco needs to buy more companies says THE STREET. 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

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

Sony getting back into Interactive TV. What are they thinking? Also the company is going to roll out a 27-inch OLED set. Will Disney buy Tivo? Maybe! The Belgian news story keeps chugging. Google Gears becomes Gears. Ok, whatever. Yahoo suing Nigerian scammers? How do they find them? How about blocking the spam? Norcal man uses cartoon character names to open online brokerage accounts. Ha. Blogger breaks news! Stop the presses. New Dell laptop. Intel getting into flash business. tech5
