  • Blog Post: [BBC] Commentary: CEO Blogs

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4576737.stm Hmm this makes me wonder. If it's true that those pointy-haired individuals at the top of the ladder have nothing useful to contribute to a blog, then at what point do you stop being "eligible?" How high must you rise before you transform from a fount...
  • Blog Post: 2 [PC Magazine] SanDisk Marries Flash with USB

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,,1749522,00.asp Are there actually electrical components in the other half of the SD card, or is it just a sheath for the USB / handle for inserting & removing the SD card? Maybe I'm just out of touch but I'm impressed if they fit everything for the flash / USB inside...

  • Blog Post: 2 [Newsweek] China Changes Microsoft

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5197528/site/newsweek/ China is definitely a challenge. I can't fault people for not wanting to pay a huge chunk of their income for a copy of Windows, nor do I think the company can afford to sell software at a steeply discounted price (else worldwide people will start...
  • Blog Post: 2 [CNET] Worm ready to wriggle into smart phones

    http://news.com.com/Worm+ready+to+wriggle+into+smart+phones/2100-7349_3-5233517.html?tag=nefd.hed This one hits Symbian phones, not Microsoft smart phones. I wonder if someone out there is working on cracking Microsoft phones... Well hopefully all our hard work will pay off and prevent it. Realistically...

    http://www.businessweek.com/@@yi0OBWUQ42AQNRUA/premium/content/04_21/b3884138_mz070.htm?se=1 Dang, I think you need a businessweek subscription in order to read it. My alma mater is trying to admit “healthier” students by looking at what they do for the plain fun of it... To reduce...
  • Blog Post: 1 [NewsFactor.com] Nokia Launches Skywriting Cell Phone

    http://wireless.newsfactor.com/story.xhtml?story_id=24369 I think these scrolling LED signs are kinda cool (used to dream of building my own as a project in school or something). Though I probably wouldn't pay money to have one on my cell phone. Sue
  • Blog Post: 2 [KernelThread.com] Making an Operating System Faster (10 Things Apple did to make Mac OS X Faster)

    http://www.kernelthread.com/mac/apme/optimizations/ The prebinding might be a possible improvement on CE. We could start by experimenting with a power tool sort of thing, perhaps. The working set detection might be interesting to improve paging of code, but probably not worth all the extra complexity...
  • Blog Post: 2 [brighthand] Sony Exits U.S. Handheld Market

    http://www.brighthand.com/article/sayonara_clie No more Clie's in the U.S. Their assessment is that there are only two major OEMs left in the PDA space now: HP and palmOne.
  • Blog Post: 3 [LinuxDevices.com] Embedded tools vendor RTI joins Eclipse Foundation

    http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS9968938065.html Wow, pretty serious for us. RTI's tools are decent and now they're going to be available to a wider Linux community. It is going to be pretty important to have the best tool offerings in the embedded space.
  • Blog Post: 3 [CNET] Microsoft says bye-bye to Wi-Fi

    http://news.com.com/2100-7351_3-5209677.html Bummer! These were good products. And I personally had some emotional investment in the 802.11 hub, I spent time helping to improve performance on it.
  • Blog Post: 2 [Silicon Insider] Sharp Freshens Low-Cost ARM Chips

    http://www.jimturley.com/si/Issue13/Issue13web.htm#link5 My take-aways: $12 - 75MHz ARM7 chips Makes me wish I had data about what kind of run-time license fee OEMs would pay to put a minimal OS on this (ie. is CE priced right for this market) Would be worth trying an OS image with kernel...
  • Blog Post: 1 [BusinessWeek] Cell Phones: Who's Calling the Shots?

    http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/04_17/b3880060.htm My Take-Aways: Our SmartPhone feature set is largely controlled by operators (carriers). We need to work with the most popular operators By providing good quality we can gain and keep customers. Sue
