    Already looking to the next Apple news

    Database, James Hein, Published on 17/02/2010

    » Seems the feedback for the iPad has been a bit lukewarm. Some have described it as ''an iPhone having a mid-life crisis''. It is like the iPhone but without multitasking, no Flash and no wide screen video playback capability. The iPhone itself is still dong well but the new unit didn't live up to expectations. Some of the problem is the responsibilities Apple has. They need to keep their developers happy to minimise app rewriting. Then there are the shareholders who expect customers to be locked into the iTunes store for everything, hence there is no Flash and you will not be able to play Evony or Farmville on your iPad.

    Out of the blue

    Database, Published on 17/02/2010

    » PM's Office Minister Sathit Wongnongtoey decided right out of the blue to call on the Magnificent Seven to get their act together and press ahead with an auction of third-generation phone bandwidth, and to heck with the consequences, constitution and so on; the National Telecommunications Commission, in his opinion, needs to move along because the public needs 3G. The National Telecommunications Commission chuckled at Mr Sathit, and made another decision to delay another project, this one the application by No 1 yuppiephone network Advanced Info Service of Shingapore to fire up its proposed roaming service with your TOT; the problem was so important that the NTC gave it to a deputy secretary, Thakorn Boonyasith, who said the proposed new TOT-AIS hookup could violate the terms of the old TOT-AIS concession; AIS wants to suck up most of the TOT's 3G bandwidth, such as it is, in return for which it will allow other customers to use AIS facilities for calls outside the small corner of Bangkok where 3G is actually available.

    Brains and Brawn

    » Samsung recently released the Omnia Pro B7610, landing with an oversized thud squarely in the slide-out keyboard, touch screen class of phones. Most manufacturers are still making a sliding qwerty model, and although the units have oversized dimensions by their nature, the trade-off is enhanced usability, which seems strange in a market obsessed with compactness.

    Busybody Buzz

    Database, Published on 24/02/2010

    » Every so often, a new product from the hugely fertile Google gets a lot of press, some of it bad, and that's what happened with a Google Mail feature called Buzz; it's a social network tool allowing users to share photos, videos, chit-chat, insults and updates, sort of like Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, hi5 and several dozens of others; the initial offering showed every user every other user's contacts, setting off privacy alarms; the main feature is that each user can link to spots on other networks such as YouTube or Flickr, which then are automatically added as updates in Google Buzz.

    » Nokia, the world's largest mobile phone manufacturer, by far, released the highly anticipated N900 in Thailand recently to much expectation. The highly competitive smartphone market is now about more than just specs and aesthetics. Nokia has rolled out a new operating system on the N900, which seems more like an internet tablet than a phone, perhaps hinting at a sign of things to come. Let's take a closer look.
