Apple and Microsoft plot iPhone Google slap

Paris Hilton

HAHAHAHAHA.....!

Just because a software giant made it doesn't mean it works. Bing couldn't find it's own bum if it had a lazer pointer. I know. I've tried it. Why the heck do they think Microsoft is trying to buy Yahoo's search algorithms...which unfortunately is similarly ineffective IMHO.

This choice by Apple is so bad it had me laughing out loud for real the moment I found out. I'm still laughing as I type this. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....!

btw there is another search engine called "Start Search" Amazingly it works. Maybe they should look into that first?

Yes Paris Hilton. She obviously runs Apple now. *(^o^)*

Graphics clues to graphics blues...

This looked interesting...but then like others sub-par net books this sports the uber awesome super fabulous "OpenGL failure" known as a "Intel Graphics Processor". To may program's Need OpenGL these days for manufactures to continue supplying computing devices like net books with the _deficient_ Intel _Graphics_ processors.

Perhaps the execs foisting these products are a bit clueless about the software market their devices are supporting these days

Good step now lets see what they can do next

I like this direction. We do need a pocket computer that's not deficient in todays tech. It's my hope the next one has even more RAM and storage. Also good to see the very good Windows XP in use here. It would do MS well to keep it available just for this kind of device.

All your data and behavior patterns belong to marketing

Eh, I got free 25Gb storage with MSN's Hotmail/Live ID email whats-it thingy. It's the ebil MS but it's also got a &%$# load more than Google's scant 1Gb. Just don't use it for data files you'd consider critical or private. Both Google or MS scan the stuff to collect behavior pattern info on you to use for marketing of other businesses products at you or even sharing with other businesses.

On the bright side it always gives the hackers something to do.

Arrogance and the executives....

I work for a company like that. Being lied to and taken advantage of has become a daily issue and nothing short of bodily harm to the execs running the company and it's partner companies will deter it.

Nothing else the employees do deters the willingness of executives to financially rape and take advantage of them because of the extremes of the executive arrogance.

Nice looking specs but....one silly thing...

I like Intel but I also like my programs that need OpenGL. Intel's graphics chips can't do OpenGL well enough to get the job done. I wish the notebook engineers would make another choice. Is that a silly little wish? m(_ _)m

Just like a kid again? No I'll stick with XP....

I'm glad they worked the bugs out of their user data collecting system but I'm not inclined to wanting my mommy keeping up on my day to day activities much past the age of 19yrs old. Of course if you like your mommy knowing everything you do still then by all means use Vista or Windows 7 because Microsoft is collecting your data with it and you should feel just like a kid again.

No not a Intel video chip again. Oh please no. The moment the users install anything requiring OpenGL they're gonna find they're dead in the water without an oar to paddle with.

Okay I guess Intel is giving them away for nothing or something. Trouble is if you can't run your programs with them what's the point of the laptop cheep even as it is?

Perfect installs...

Anyone have an install not take on the first try. Ohhhh of course that never ever happens. Computers and software always do EXACTLY what they are supposed to every time...

When things work all is paradise. When things don't it can take multiples of attempts to install something as you diagnose the possible reasons. DRM is a joke. It's not compatible with the computer world. The arrogance of Corporate Executives is such that they think they can do as they please and ignore the very forces of nature itself never mind their customers needs!

You know what that means? Their plans can't afford to have alternatives out there sinking the putt.

Isn't supply and demand the cornerstone of capitalism?

When customers demand a product that already exists over another and that maker of that product refuses those customers then stops selling it at a time it's out selling the other choice there is something other than supply and demand taking place.

If their business is not about supplying the demand then what is it really about?
