Gateway One Announced

Computers 1 Comment »

I don’t really understand why every single time someone comes out with an all-in-one computer they have to compare it to the iMac.

According to Excel 2007, any equation that should result in 65,535 Excel 2007 will tell you that the answer is 100,000. I actually prefer 100,000 to 65,535, its an even number, it is easily divisible by 10, its a lot larger then 65,535. But, when I’m building complicated spreadsheets (which I don’t do) I think […]

Apple, Hack, iPhone, VOIP No Comments »

This is the first demo of VOIP on the iPhone that I have ever seen, mostly because no one has done it before. This is amazing, I’m not sure what type of VOIP service that Truphone is using but I’m guessing that it isn’t Skype, in my honest opinion if it isn’t Skype then it […]

Sidekick is a horrible name for the Slide, but I guess […]
