First real look at Origami

Comments Backlinks

Intel has given the first peeks into how the Origami looks like. They showed it off at their developer forum yesterday. The important points are that it has a 7inch screen, runs full versions of Windows, lasts for 3 hours and is expected to cost $1000 initially. Intel hopes to increase the battery performance and Microsoft could develop a special version of Windows for it. The price is expected to drop in 2 years.

Ok, so this is not looking too optimistic. $1000 and a 3 hour battery life? The battery life is still tolerable I think, but the price is way too high. Who would want to fork out 1k for a hybrid tablet pc? I admit that I thought no one would buy the Ipod, but look how that turned out. But seriously, 1k? By the time it drops to $500, and I assume they're not gonna upgrade anything in the mean time, it'll be practically nonsensical to pay that much for a 2 year old product. Drop a couple hundreds off the price now and I might consider. I bet many more will too.

Update: Origami Portal analyses the Intel UMPC video. UMPC video here.

They also have an analysis of Microsoft's Origami.

Finally, there are some (upcoming) videos of the UMPC/Origami at Origami Portal.

Get an Xbox® 360 for Six Bucks?

Comments Backlinks

So you didn't get the Xbox 360 because it was too expensive and wanted to wait till the price dropped enough to fit into your budget. Now you have a chance to get an XBox 360 at a very low price of $6 (if you live in the US, you lucky bastards). Sounds too good to be real? Well, that's a catch, sort of.

Out of the thousands of boxes that Midnight Box will be shipping, only 1 will contain an Xbox 360, another will have an Advent Heritage Series five-speaker home theater surround sound system. The actual price is really only a buck, but $5 goes towards shipping. Still, the minimum retail price for any box will be $20 and the maximum is $650, so it's quite a bargain.

So head on down to Midnight Box and get registered. Go there at 12:01am on Mar 10 and grab your boxes. Wait again for your Mystery Box to get delivered and hopefully PROFIT!!!

Pearl Jam's latest single available for free

Comments Backlinks

I just found out a while ago that Pearl Jam has released their new single to the public for download. It's called World Wide Suicide and is a 256kps unprotected, DRM-free MP3. In case you do not know who Pearl Jam is, you should be able to remember their song, Last Kiss, that was incredibly popular just a couple of years ago. If I recall correctly, that was based on a real life car accident.

Now that your memory is refreshed, you should probably check out that song since it's free anyway. The song is listenable and should grow on you in no time. Given that their album will be released in May, if you're a fan, you should definitely grab it now. Some sources tell me that this download will only be available for a few days, so get it while you can!

A real picture of the Origami?

Comments Backlinks

A "leaked" picture of the Origami has appeared and it's looking better than before. Of course someone already pointed out that this is quite possibly fake as none of the indicator lights are actually on. Still, it could be a mock-up from official sources although that is highly unlikely. Why show a mock-up when you have the real thing to boast about? Nevertheless, if it looks somewhat like this, though the size could be a tad smaller and the price is around $500 - 600, Microsoft could have an Ipod in their hands.

The new touchscreen video Ipod?

Comments Backlinks

This site has some great pictures of the rumored new video Ipod with a touchscreen clickwheel. Hopefully these are real pictures.

The first one compares it with an Ipod nano and it looks like it's about the same height as the nano, although it is about 1.5 times fatter than the Ipod nano. You can also see the touchscreen clickwheel and playing/status indicator on the new Ipod. The new Ipod also has a larger screen, which means a shorter battery life? The second pic shows off the height of the new Ipod. And the last one shows it playing music.

Update: The site linked to has died, so I grabbed the images and hosted them on imageshack. Other blogs with this: gadgetall and engadget.

Video: The Simpsons intro made with real actors

Comments Backlinks



Someone took quite a bit of effort to act out the entire introduction for the Simpsons. Some are saying there are some inaccuracies but who really cares? It's great to watch just for the heck of it. I wonder what's next... an entire episode of the Simpsons?

Update: The original creators actually did this as a promo for a new season of the Simpsons.
