OK, I've been using the new apps on my iPod touch for a few days now and I'm still of the opinion that 80% of them are pretty dismal. However, the email app is pretty good and makes the $20 upgrade fee easier to swallow.
Without a doubt, 2007 was a bad year for AMD. A price war with Intel. The acquisition of ATi. Chip delays. Chip bugs. Any one of these would have been bad, but all of these combined meant that AMD had a really tough year. But 2008 could be a much better year for AMD.
I've just upgraded a few systems to the latest ATi Catalyst suite version 8.1 and I'm noticing a strange bug.
Yesterday, I sounded pretty enthusiastic about the newly announced MacBook Air. Now, having slept on it, I feel that I might have been off the mark.
Since my post yesterday about the $20 iPod touch software update several readers have contacted me to explain how Apple had to charge for this update because of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). This issue, so I'm told, is much the same as the way Apple had to charge $1.99 the 802.11n enabler for the Intel-based MacBooks and MacBook Pros. Personally, I don't buy this. If this is going to be Apple's defense over the charge, then I say it's nothing more than a smokescreen. Here's why ...

Seems like Apple investors were hoping for for more from the Macworld 08 keynote.
Now, I think that Apple's Time Capsule and the new MacBook Air products are likely to be very popular with Mac fans, but something that might not go down so well - the $20 upgrade fee to add Mail, Stocks, Notes, Weather, and Maps to the iPod touch.
At Macworld 08 Steve Jobs introduced us to Apple's latest addition to the Mac family - MacBook Air. What's so special about the MacBook Air? It's the world's thinnest, most portable notebook.
