Techie post


looks like it's been a while since i last posted

well, life's been busy with failed reactions
hopefully everything will be better soon!
since i hv stolen some chemical from a research institute,
i believe there is no reason it wouldn't work!

it's quite happening this week in the techno world
a whole new line of iMac launched on wednesday
Brand new people-say-better-OS -- Windows 7, launched on Thursday
Nokia is suing Apple iPhone for violation 10 of Nokia's wireless technology patents on Friday
The upcoming browser - Google Chrome has released mac version on Saturday

The new iMac comes in 21.5" and 27"
the 27" can also serve as an external display
the 21.5" has 1920 x 1080 pixels while the 27" has 2560 x 1440
which means both are HD screen and it's also 16:9 wide screen display!

Apple reckons that cables r devils and hence has gotten rid of all cables except for the power cord... hehe.. wonder when they will get rid of it..
both keyboard and mouse r bluetooth enabled

The new mouse is known as "magic mouse"
it uses the same multitouch technology as in the iphones
which means it supports the gesture like swipe, scroll etc
if u hv used MB or MBP or iphone or ipod touch before, u would hv known how to use it!
also, for the same specs of iMac now and b4, it's cheaper by approx SGD 400!!
luckily i nv buy that time..!

P/S I: This was posted using Google Chrome in a Mac, pretty snappy so far

My MacBook's press pad wasn't behaving recently
so I sent for a full body check up since the applecare protection plan (APP) expiring soon
and guess what..
after 5 days, when i went back to collect my laptop
i noticed not only the press pad is new, the touch pad, the keyboard, the top case the fan are all new too!!
Kudos, apple! love ya~
now, my laptop is as good as new

when i bought my laptop 3 years ago, it was:
512 MB RAM, 60 GB HDD, 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo
2 GB RAM, 320 GB HDD, 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo

It used only 22 seconds to boot up, now, age has reared its fugly head
It takes 9 seconds to shut down and 46 seconds to boot up
still as snappy as before though..
