Post-iPad announcement, Steve Jobs late last week held a company town hall. Wired noted that the big topics included both Google and Adobe, which should surprise none.After all, Google is becoming more of a threat to Apple, with its Android app phone OS, and with plans to release a Chrome OS for PCs as well.

In our analysis of the iPad, we essentially came to the conclusion that it was a large iPod touch. Funny, because that's exactly the same conclusion that one of the most powerful individuals in the tech industry came to. It's unusual for executives from rival companies to come right out in the media and speak up with their feelings about a... Read more...

With a focus on research and development, IMFT has doubled NAND density approximately every 18 months. In 2006, they started production with a 50nm process, then moved to a 40nm process in 2008. This inevitably leads to smaller, more affordable... Read more...
MSI has a habit of refreshing its notebook lineup very soon after Intel introduces new processors, and sure enough, it has done the same thing with its larger-than-life CR720. The new machine weighs in with a 17.3" display, a 1600 x 900 resolution panel and Windows 7 Home Premium.Other specifications include Intel's... Read more...
In the wake of Apple's announcement of the iPad, comes the first salvo in what is probably going to be a drawn out battle. Amazon.com has pulled books published by Macmillan, electronic or not, from its site.Search for authors available from Macmillan, and with the exception, it seems, of library-bound or "bargain books," you won't find Amazon.com...

The magic price point for many seems to be $1,000, and thus, following an earlier price cut to the sleek and sexy Dell Adamo, Dell has lowered the price still further, at least for an "entry-level" model. The Dell Adamo Aspire sneaks in under $1,000 for a $999 starting price.Of course, that's the starting price. The Dell Adamo Desire comes... Read more...
Ready for a real shocker? That texting and driving habit you've been trying to kick may not be as bad for you as the insurance companies have led you to believe. Of course, we would still recommend putting the phone down while you're driving (we're speaking for all those cars around you, for the record), but an... Read more...
We've covered Apple's forthcoming iPad with a pretty good level of detail, but one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is Flash. Or, the lack thereof, we should say. Steve Jobs was adamant on stage during his iPad introduction that the browsing experience was best in class, but when we think about browsing, we... Read more...
While AT&T long ago announced it was removing any restrictions on iPhone VOIP application on their network, Apple didn't follow suit.

A few weeks back, at this years 2010 CES show, we gave you a first hand look at the hot looking new 11-inch form-factor Dell Alienware M11x gaming notebook.
