Il netbook è morto, viva il netbook: Toshiba Dynabook N301

Il netbook è morto, viva il netbook: Toshiba Dynabook N301

Un recente studio di DigiTimes che indica i tablet in frenata per quanto riguarda il I trimestre 2012, rispetto ai primi tre mesi dell'anno scorso, rende assai più sensata la scelta di Toshiba di non aver mai completamente abbandonato il comparto netbook, dato ormai per spacciato proprio a causa dei vari iPad, Galaxy Tab, Playbook ecc. La risposta a questa previsione, forse troppo azzardata, arriva quindi dal Giappone e si chiama Dynabook N301, una soluzione realizzata attorno alla piattaforma...

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Steve Jobs announced the iPhone 4 yesterday in his WWDC keynote, and it’s a gorgeous device with software upgrades that include multitasking, a video chat app called FaceTime, and more. I’m still a happy Android user, but I have to hand it to Apple. They continue to school the industry on aesthetics and marketing. Case in point: the FaceTime demo video. First, some background. I got a Sprint EVO at Google I/O which has a front-facing video camera, and presumably the...

Intel Processor Identification Utility

Intel Processor Identification Utility

It is always a good idea to check the computer hardware thoroughly after it has been purchased. It does not really matter if a fully manufactured PC has been purchased or a single component like a processor or video card. A friend of mine for instance bought a new PC recently with a hard drive that had not the advertised size. While that can be easily discovered there are components that make the identification process much harder. Think of processors for instance. The recent news...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her...

Fine, I’ll Say It: Snow Leopard Is Ultimately a Service Pack

Fine, I’ll Say It: Snow Leopard Is Ultimately a Service Pack

Merlin Mann’s tweet about Snow Leopard hits the nail on the head. Even though David Pogue says this is an “uninformed wisecrack,” I’m still calling Snow Leopard a service pack. “Snow Leopard Fixes Leopard’s Bugs” is not the headline you’re going to see in the NYT or WSJ. Instead the tech press told just the story Apple served them on a silver platter: that they did something noble and interesting and efficient by making their operating...

iPhone 3GS? Not Enough to Justify the Cost (and AT&T Sucks)

iPhone 3GS? Not Enough to Justify the Cost (and AT&T Sucks)

Asked my Twitter peeps whether or not they were buying the just-released iPhone 3GS, and 175 replies later, the response is a pretty solid NO. Almost 80% of respondents are passing on the 3GS mainly because they don’t think the upgrade is worth the money, they’re not eligible for the upgrade pricing, they think AT&T blows, they’re waiting for next year’s model, or they’re simply happy with their current phone. The other 20% were thrilled about getting...

System Update: Gravatars and Facebook Pics Now Showing

After six months almost 1,000 readers have registered for a commenter account here at Smarterware, either using Facebook Connect, OpenID, or just by creating an account. Obviously SW readers are the best-looking commenters on the internet, so it’s about time we see each other’s faces. After a little WordPress hacking, I’ve added Facebook profile pictures and Gravatar support to comments and user profiles, plus a few other tweaks that help you get to know your fellow...
