AIM appealing to techies? and other cool stuff

Just an interesting thing i noticed while browsing the interwebs today. I recently set up a PC desktop computer in my room and I wanted to the get the AIM application for Windows XP. When I went to the website to download AIM I noticed that they had AIM for linux! I have no idea how long how that has been up there but it really surprised me. Linux is the bomb and it’s great that it is getting some more mainstream “advertising” if you want to call it that. Another interesting experience I had today was trying to explain what Linux was to my family. They weren’t exactly interested and probably wished they didn’t ask. I lost them around Linus Torvalds. This just added to my list of unsuccessful attempts at explaining Linux to someone who’s never heard of it before.

Contech Dashboard Application

I recently made a Consumer Tech Dashboard application for the Macintosh(sorry PC users). I am going to get the Dashboard application uploaded to the Apple widget directory as soon as I can. The next step that the Contech team will be taking is developing an iPhone application that will most likely do the same thing. What the widget does is take the RSS feed from the Consumer Tech blog and broadcast it on your Dashboard or (fingers crossed) on your iPhone. So look for us on the mac website. If you don’t know how to access the mac widget directory, just search download dashboard widgets on google. Another place you can download the dashboard widget is here

New Macbook Pro review

Only a couple weeks ago Apple released its new line of Macbook and Macbook Pros. These new models have been updated with new NVidia graphics card and faster processors. They trackpad has also been redesigned; the button and bad have morphed into one big button/trackpad. It is also made of glass and is bigger for scrolling or rotating. It also has been fitted with a fifteen-inch LCD widescreen that projects beautiful displays and graphics. The keyboard has a backlight so no matter how dark it is you can always see what and where you are typing. The keys on the keyboard are interesting, each key is rounding for typing delight. This new version of the Macbook is much faster and easier to use. Hopefully the new NVidia graphics card will open new doors for Mac gamers. One thing that i’m very happy to hear about the Macbook Pros is that the graphics card is not integrated into the motherboard. This means it frees up some ram and increases the the overall speed. It also has a nice, smooth, sleek finish which increased the coolness of the product. I am extremely happy with new macbook pro i give this product a 10/10.
