the real video ipod?

1

Think Secret seems to think that Apple is playing us all for fools. Less than 6 months after the introduction of the 5G iPod, they’re saying that Apple is planning on releasing a true video iPod on April 1.

Many things make me concerned about this. Ok…well two but whatever. Or more, all depends on how my brain feels like working.

Apple is already facing a class action suit because people are pissed that the screens of their nanos are scratched…what will they ever do if something the size of a 5G iPod was just a screen? It’s something that would have to be fixed…and quickly.
I don’t think that Apple would do this…just my personal opinion. Steve seems to think that the patents recently taken out by Apple regarding touch screen technology has more to do with an Apple tablet, which would be ten times more interesting, especially with an Intel Duo.

And yes, Apple’s anniversary may be April 1st. But remember what April 1st is? Yeah. Remember what happened last year on April 1st? There was a big announcement all over google regarding the Apple nPod, a gaming device that looked almost exactly like the mockup of this.

laser printer

Yesterday we found a laser printer.  It was beautiful.  Extremely heavy, and at least 10 years old, it was nice.  We looked kind of skethy carrying it from the loading dock to our room, but hey, thats what we do best.

I’ll get some photos of us taking it appart later this afternoon.  And some photos of us having fun with the toner, oh man is that fun.

Then there’s the microwaving of the various parts, that was amazing too!

In an effort to promote the next release of Windows Vista outside of the US, Microsoft is offering a chance for users in Europe and the Middle East to win prizes if they can guess the launch date of the next version of its Windows OS, according to a company website.
In addition to a first-prize trip for one person to spend three nights in a four-star hotel and attend the launch – the location of which has not been disclosed – Microsoft is offering second-, third- and fourth-prize winners an Xbox 360, and fifth- to 10th-place winners an Xbox Core System.

Wow.

Anyone got any guesses?

My sources say spring 2007 most likely…

Google Desktop 3

0

Google released a new version of their desktop search today.

Beta 3, it offers some new features, my favorite so far is the ability to drag any pannal i want onto my desktop.

You can also send pannals, or your entire sidebar to a friend via googletalk intergrated right in the sidebar, jst drag it to your buddy.

A cool feature which i havent yet tried out allows you to search the contents of one computer, from a different computer, provided both are connected to the internet, and you have a google account.

You can use advanced search features to search your computer, the preferences page is totally redone.

Google & Dell

0

Google could dole out up to $1bn over three years for the rights to have the Google Toolbar pre-installed on Dell PCs.The PC maker confirmed today that it is piloting sales of PCs pre-installed with Google software. It was smoked out by the Wall Street Journal, which today published a well-sourced article on the battle for PC “real estate”, conducted by Microsoft, Google and Yahoo!.”

That would certiantly push google into the minds of millions of other people (those sad few who dont have the internet maybe?)
