    Database, Don Sambandaraksa, Published on 03/02/2010

    » Nokia has pinned its future hopes on two platforms.

    One heck of a notebook

    Database, Pee Kay, Published on 03/02/2010

    » My interest in personal computers started almost 30 years ago, during the period of Apple II computer. If you are a creature of that era, you'd know that it's hard to forget Osborne 1, the first portable computer ever introduced by the industry. This marketing and technological marvel, featuring a mere 5-inch display, two floppy-disk drives, a 4 MHz Z80 microprocessor, and 64k of RAM, running on CP/M (a very popular operating system of the time), is a monster compared to today's notebooks.

    Dysfunctional campaign

    Database, Published on 03/02/2010

    » Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva announced that he expects third generation phone service before New Year's Eve; he then announced why there probably won't be any; in a speech to mark the fifth anniversary of the Magnificent Seven National Telecommunications Commission, Mr Abhisit set out the conflicting criteria he expects to see in Asia's last, most dysfunctional 3G campaign: service before the end of the year after fair bandwidth auctions that favour small Thai telecom operators; on one hand, "3G services can no longer be postponed," he insisted, but on the other, the NTC must bias bidding to favour a more competitive structure; the English translation of this speech: DTac of Norway and AIS of Shingapore have way too much market power now and 3G contracts must show that.
