My Newfound Backup Sync Solution Friends! SugarSync & BackBlaze

April 19th, 2010 · No Comments

As I always do, I have been searching for neat ways to backup my files and to even keep things sync’d across multiple computers. I have tried different options like DropBox and Mozy, but both had issues and really were not what I was looking for. However, just the other day, I found two different things that really DID help. First, for my syncronizing across computers and such, I found Sugar Sync.

Apple tablet to the Rescue

January 6th, 2010 · No Comments

Just as we thought the behemoth Google would trounce the tiny Apple David, we see that all hope is not lost!
It seems that apple will always be here to give us something new and culture shifting. All we have to do is pay the right price…
Actually, the Apple Tablet looks to be just that; a culture shifter. Tablets have not generally been heralded with much fanfare or even a notice, but this one will be VERY DIFFERENT and already is different.
With so many iPhone users out there and a simple interface that is much like the iPhone’s, it makes sense that this tablet might be more than a computer, game system, communications device, multimedia platform, but even the salvation of print journalism… well, not really print, but at least the print houses…
Read more below on just what it does. I think you will be just as amazed as I. And [...]

Google Phone | Nexus One

January 5th, 2010 · No Comments

Well they really went off and did it. As if beating the hound out of Microsoft in the search wars wasn’t good enough for them, they went and picked a fight with their old friends at Apple.
With all the who do about iPhone killers out there, I would have to say that this thing looks like the nearest rival if any.
I mean, it isn’t going to take the phone out of the ipod, but it sure will likely put the search in the OS.
I don’t know, but whether or not this thing is as big as an Apple, I definitely think this phone will be FUN TO WATCH… especially since you can buy them unlocked.
Now that’s not something that Cupertino would allow is it?pd

GOOGLE | Can You Hear Me Now?

November 13th, 2009 · No Comments

Google actually just made the smartest move EVER! On the heels of an almost victory over whether or not phone companies will have to allow Google Voice or not with Google Voice’s iPhone app, they are moving to checkmate position as they prepare for an all out VoIP war!!!!!
Way to go Google, maybe this will start to make everything a bit more balanced and fix some of the outrageous prices that we are paying for our mobile packages.

Mobile GETS Mobilized with Nvidia!

July 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

I have to tell you guys, this one looks like the best opportunity yet. I mean, if ever there would be someone to take on the powerhouse of Intel, NVIDIA would be it in my book and the reason why is Intel actually own the technology that underlies AMD and others have other issues. Nvidia DOES NOT!
So, bring it on. It sounds like Mobile Computing is really going to get fun!

Tech Daily: Nvidia goes mobile – Jun. 30, 2009
You say, “potato,” I say, “netbook.” That’s a bit how I feel when Michael Rayfield, who heads up the mobile computing effort at graphics chip specialist Nvidia, drops a tiny computer on my desk. Branded Mobinnova, it had an almost 9″ diagonal screen and a solid keyboard that folded around a tube stuffed with batteries and various connectors.
It is light enough to toss across the room [...]

Apple’s New Philosophy…

June 24th, 2009 · No Comments

I am excited to see Apple thinking about the little guy. This is the first year I have seen them offer more and more cheap and relevant offers in order to reach a subset of the population that is growing with this current downturn.
They have offered:1 – A lower cost macbook and macbook pro.2 – They are offering refurbished mac mini’s at a price point below MS machines (See Microcenter.com $399 for a dual core with current OS and current iLife).3 – The older version of the iPhone with new OS at $99!!!!4 – An upgrade for the new Snow Leopard at $29!!!! Instead of over a hundred like their prior releases and like Mr. Softy’s.5 – A Server Operating System with unlimited users!!!!6 – And free stuff. They are giving away more and more.
In a time when everyone is cutting back, this is the way to go. Rather than [...]

Intel’s Medfield Second Generation Atom Processor

June 24th, 2009 · No Comments

So, now we know the name! Medfield, Atom’s third generation is the expected Smartphone world changer. OS on a Chip! While others are saying that Intel is taking too long, I say Intel is brilliant and I hope successful. Again, I say that this is much larger than just taking more of the market in Smartphones, this is about changing the way we do mobile computing. Already, Apple’s iPhone is a revolutionary laptop replacement for me and now there is more to see.
Even if Intel isn’t the one to make this change, the great thing is that they are at least redirecting our thinking and helping us take this to a new level. Apple has already reframed the way we see Smartphones. Maybe Intel can help us rethink the UMPC.

Intel Throws Its Hat In the Ring!

June 24th, 2009 · No Comments

Intel is “IN.” They said they would get in and boy are they! If Intel takes their Atom Processor and some beefed up software into the mobile phone market, Nokia and Intel might have something to gain.
This could take mobile technology to the next level. What if your PHONE instead of your UMPC were your laptop replacement?
Just a thought…
