    A bite of the Apple

    Database, Published on 20/01/2010

    » Google released the Nexus One smart phone, an impressive gadget that will push more improvements in the iPhone, but will not immediately take much more than a nibble out of the Apple; the new phone runs on the Google operating system, and starts life with more than 18,000 apps - about 15 percent of the Apple selection but, on the other hand, able to multi-task, something the iPhone apps won't do; the big deal about Nexus One, however, is only about US and Canada, where Google aims to be, very roughly, what Number 2 yuppiephone firm DTAC was when the Norwegians took it over and it unlocked its phones; that is what Google is doing with Nexus, which is made by HTC of Taiwan and costs $529 or 17,500 baht in real money - but which is unlocked and will work with any carrier; this is a revolution in the US wireless industry, where phones are totally locked into carriers, and if you want an iPhone, you sign a two-year, near-usurious contract with AT&T; phone companies will feature the Nexus One - T-Mobile subsidises it for $179 for Americans who agree in writing to pay $79.99 a month for the next two years, or 6,000 plus 2,700 baht in real money; but Google will sell you the phone for use with any carrier from its website (google.com/phone) and this is the first crack in the phone-company control of the business.

    Out with the old, in with the new

    Outlook, Marius Murdoch, Published on 14/01/2010

    » It might seem like the ancient past, but it wasn't so long ago that we lived in the dark ages of dial-up internet, floppy disks, pagers and fax machines. Luckily these old-hats died with dignity, and while we may miss the harrowing screams of connecting modems, good riddance to bad rubbish. But other technologies seem insistent on carrying on, despite smarter and more accessible alternatives gaining saliency in the new decade. What looked to be consumer mainstays seem poised for poor performance and obsolescence this year. Here's a list of some of the stale technologies of 2010.
