Looks like I just woke up today in this fungus morning… I thought to view my long ago created blog that nobody cares about… I am here and I see no hits at all… So, Its true nobody cares about it… Anyways, here is the deal:

On the 2nd thought, I visited this Shop Page of Lenovo for new IdeaPad S12; and what I saw here is Lenovo playing Tennis too along with Golf… I mean we’ve now got Via Nano option in processor and not just Intel Atom… And fellows who are fed up of enough Intel around everywhere; they could actually save around $50 bucks…

Don’t just stick to my blog here and see it for yourself now then… Lenovo – IdeaPad S12 (Via Nano Option…)

SSDs about to get extreme upgrade in the coming year, with SanDisk’s announcement of a new technology as ExtremeFFS (Flash File System). It is supposed to use page-based methods so that the data’s location on the drive won’t be tied to its physical space unlike now. According to SanDisk random write speeds are going to be 100 times faster than they are on drives using current technology. There are hopes that this advance, coupled with other upcoming standards, will lead to widespread adoption of SSDs in PCs (and much, much more money in their pockets). That should fit in nicely with news we just heard that Microsoft’s Windows 7, unlike Vista, will include optimization for use with the drives. While actual drives that carry ExtremeFFS have yet to be announced, SanDisk expects them to ship in 2009. Fun times.

When one have a first glimpse over Dell Slim 12” (or Dell Inspiron Mini 12), one would say another notebook from Dell or is it netbook really? I don’t see a netbook size yet find an Atom there… Anyways, when one dig deep into Dell Slim 12” specs; one is pretty much sure that there is something between notebook and netbook thing that should first of all be a true lightweight mobile laptop machine and its none other than Dell hitting that spot with Dell Slim 12”…

For people who does not fit in 1024×600 for those who are fade up of hearing same Atom 270 configuration, Dell has come up with a different stroke. Dell Slim 12” embed high resolution display with a more conventional 1280×800 resolution. Moreover, Dell is first one to put in Atom Z520 Silverthorne along with Poulsbo chipset (Poulsbo includes 3D graphics, HD video playback (720p and 1080i content) and the memory controller.)

Dell is able to offer 3-cell battery using both silverthorne and pousbo even with a 12” display then. There is not much attention to true mobile connectivity and limiting it to conventional LAN and Wifi as found in every other netbook.

Finishing is almost same as used in Inspiron Mini but looks reminds me of Dell Studio line if one Dell gives it a color or texture. With almost 30 cm square and 23 cm deep, the Slim weighs only 1.24 kg with battery cells 3.

The GMA 500 graphics chipset integrated should not leave us with much amaze but enough render a nice eye candy over 12” display. Besides only 1.3 megapixel camera and a microphone, the machine gets all the elements common to existing Netbook.

The very first advertised price in Japan is $600 which is a lot less than Asus EeePC S101 anyways… Dell is getting really sweet here providing all thats required with a reasonable price tag…

InPhase has been promising its Tapestry (holographic storage disks) since 2005, but we’ve seen any product in action ever since. According to several recent reports, the constant setbacks and delays have just forced the Longmont, Colorado-based firm to trim down a its workforce to a length. In fact, the company fired its 120+ staff on May 30 in both engineering and research areas courtesy of CEO Nelson Diaz.

Well, InPhase should better come up with some real product now before its overpriced holographic storage end up in illusion rather than a reality…
