Sony Vaio W: Something new on my wish list

By , July 28, 2009 2:17 pm


It’s a pretty piece of toy from Sony. But as a typical Sony product, cheap is always not in the picture. The Vaio W cost at least US$499.99 in the US, in comparison, netbooks of other brands with similar specs goes around US$400-US$450, not sure how much will it cost when its on Singapore shore though. So on serious thoughts, I might just be happy getting an Asus 1008HA.

The Vaio W has almost the same specs as other netbooks as other brands, an Intel Atom N270 processor, 10.1″ LCD, 160GB HDD, 1GB DDR SDRAM, Windows XP Home. The only notable is most likely the 10.1″ screen infact comes with a resolution of 1368×768, something you seldom find on a 10.1″ netbook.

The first ever life size prototype Gundam finally got its lights, but sadly, its going no where and definitely can’t fly.



War of the fruits

This was one of the proposed ads made for the BlackBerry first touch screen mobile device, but never made it to the TV. IMO, its rather corny…

The not-so-happy Apple fans of course wouldn’t sit and see things happen like this. And so…

Happy New Year…

Watching video in CLI mode

Who says you can’t watch video in a command line interface mode. But instead of seeing a motion picture, you see ASCII letters.

What is i’m?
I’ve been asked frequently on what is the i’m that appears everywhere on Live Messenger. So here it is.

i’m is a new initiative from Windows Live Messengerâ„¢. Every time you start a conversation using i’m, Microsoft shares a portion of the program’s advertising revenue with some of the world’s most effective organizations dedicated to social causes. We’ve set no cap on the amount we’ll donate to each organization. The sky’s the limit.

Now that you know what it is for, be sure to use it more frequently to help the needy.
