Tiny Laptop Revealed by Apple…

Apple Computer has revealed a super-thin laptop…

Here’s the article:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs took the wraps off a super-slim new laptop Tuesday, unveiling a personal computer less than an inch thick that turns on the moment it’s opened.

At the Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Jobs also confirmed the tech giant’s foray into online movie rentals, revealing an alliance with all six major movie studios to offer films over high-speed Internet connections 30 days after they’re released on DVD.

Nokia wants back in…

Well it looks like Nokia wants to get it’s gain back in the cellphone business.

 

ESPOO, Finland — When Google announced plans in October to revolutionize the software of cellular phones, few were more eager to hear the details than the industry veterans at Nokia. They still are.

“We’ve seen an announcement,” Nokia’s chief executive, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, said with more than a hint of sarcasm. “Conceptually, we could have made that announcement a long time ago.”

My first cellphone was a Nokia. It was great. It had all I could want in a cellphone at age 15. It made calls, had a calculator, and even some games. Now I am a little more advanced with my Palm 755p Cellphone.

Sounds like Nokia has an opportunity to gain back some share of the market. I look forward to seeing what happens.

The iPhone is in trouble…

So it looks like the iPhone is in trouble. Atleast in a couple of countries.

Here’s the article I got from the NY Times:

PARIS, Nov. 20 — Last month, French law forced Apple to promise that consumers could buy a version of its iPhone in this country without having to be locked into a long-term contract with Orange, the only mobile phone operator offering the new device.

 

Now, the same issue is tripping up Apple’s plans to sell the music-playing cellphone in Germany, the largest European telephone market. Last week, the Vodafone Group won the first round of a legal case against T-Mobile over its exclusive deal to sell the iPhone there.

A German court ruled that T-Mobile must offer the iPhone to everyone, even without the 24-month contract that it had required for buyers of the phone, which went on sale in Germany for 399 euros ($591) on Nov. 9. T-Mobile is appealing the ruling.

Well I look forward to outcome of these courtcases… Maybe we can expect something to happen the US… I would love to have the iPhone but I don’t wanna break contract with Sprint and pay all their fees…

Google buys another company…

That’s right folks… Google is back on the buying company path… Google has just recently finished purchasing a company called Jaiku… Jaiku is a software firm that designs mobile communication platforms…

Here’s a part of the story:

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 9 (AP) — Google said Tuesday that it had bought the Finnish start-up Jaiku, which makes a mobile phone application people can use to send short messages about where they are and what they are doing.
