iPad: Big iPod or Huge iPhone?

Filed under: Technology — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 4:31 pm

Apple Inc unveiled its wildly anticipated “iPad” on Wednesday in the biggest product launch since the iPhone three years ago.

Basically all they’ve said is this is a really big iPod touch, so far it has a better screen and so you can design better apps for it, but Apple hasn’t solved some of the media use problems that they’re in a position to solve.

The screen is stunning, and it’s 1024 x 768. Feels just like a huge iPhone in your hands.

Following are the features that are missing in the iPad due to which it gained so much disappointment.

  • iPad USB ports – USB ports in this iPad are absent, so a person can’t plug in his USB drive to transfer photos to it.
  • iPad Flash – As Apple won’t approve Flash player so no flash support is present there.
  • iPad Multi-tasking – Multi-tasking is unacceptable for a Tablet having a starting price-point of $499 so it is not present in it.
  • iPad Camera – No camera is present on the front or back of the iPad.

Now this is an interesting concept… a car with no sheet metal skin. The 2-seater BMW GINA’s dodgy name actually stands for “Geometry and functions In N Adaptations”, with N adaptations referring to the flexible outer skin of the car that is made out of cloth!

Under all that cloth is a special chasis structure which includes movable sub-frames to vary the outer layer of cloth according to the functionality needed. The cloth itself is a special highly durable and extremely expansion-resistant fabric material. The material remains dimensionally stable irrespective of the temperature and air humidity.

Windows XP going off, Windows 7 coming up

Filed under: Technology — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 2:52 pm

After facing a problem with Longhorn in 2004, Microsoft launched Windows Vista on 2007. At the early launching, Vista was told as excellent Microsoft product with new elegance appearance but faced several problems and seem not very stable.

Microsoft originally announced over a year ago that Windows XP would be going off the market in January 2008. XP was later given a brief stay of execution, to June 30, 2008. That deadline is fast approaching, which has led to much panicking from people who aren’t quite sure what XP’s “going off market” means, exactly.
