Creative Zen Stone Plus lobbed at consumers

Creative Zen Stone Plus lobbed at consumers – Filed under: Portable Audio It was barely a month ago that Creative pelted the market with its Zen Stone, and now they’re rolling out a re-upped and revamped version known as the Zen Stone Plus. While pretty much keeping the form factor the same, Creative has added a blue OLED screen, FM tuner, karaoke mode, and a stopwatch. The capacity has been increased to 2GB, doubling the original Stone’s, but the color choices remain the same. Price and release date haven’t been mentioned, but you’ll know as soon as we do.

Yahoo! in Talks to Buy MySpace: Is That a Good Idea Nowadays?

I don't why Yahoo! has MySpace on their mind. As it has already peak above all the other free social networks. A better candidate that seems to be growing steadily is FaceBook!
Yahoo! in Talk to Buy MySpace: Is That a Good Idea Nowadays? -

Well this is big. Apparently, Yahoo! has discussed buying MySpace from News Corp in a bid to save itself from irrelevance. In return, News Corp. would get 30 percent of the newly combined Yahoo!+MySpace. Or, in dollar amounts, News Corp would cash in to the tune of $11.1 billion. Considering Murdoch and Co. bought MySpace for $650 million, I’d say that’s a deal and a half. Too bad Yahoo!’s recent restructuring puts the deal, if there ever really was one, in jeopardy.

But you know what? A lot of us here think that buying Facebook is the better move for Yahoo! Let’s admit it: MySpace simply isn’t what it was two years ago and all the momentum in the world appears to be behind Facebook. Its community is just what advertisers love—kids with cash to burn—and the site isn’t a disaster to read like MySpace can be.

AMD to introduce 45nm process AM3 CPU family in 2H08

AMD to introduce 45nm process AM3 CPU family in 2H08 - AMD schedules to launch its 45nm process socket AM3 family processors in the second half of 2008. The processors will support HyperTransport 3.0 and will have a built-in DDR2/DDR3 memory controller. The processors will be backward compatible with the previous AM2 and AM2+ socket motherboards, according to sources at motherboard makers. AMD's AM3 family will include the quad-core Deneb and DenebFX, dual-core Propus and Regor, and single-core Sargas. Shipments of 45nm products are predicted to surpass those of 65nm products within half a year from launch, noted the sources.

Although Socket AM3 processors will be backwards compatible with previous socket AM2 and AM2+ motherboards, socket AM3 motherboards will not be able to support the previous socket AM2 and AM2+ processors. Therefore shipment volumes of socket AM3 motherboards will depend on the speed of transition to DDR3 memory, added the sources

Microsoft flip-flops again: now no Vista Home on Macs

I can't believe this is happening, twice in a week two Microsoft proposed changes to allow more functionality and portability are squashed like a bug. This is not going to make consumers happy, and will drive some of them into Apple's arms, and possibly Ubuntu's.
Microsoft flip-flops again: now no Vista Home on Macs -

Filed under: ,

We've seen our fair share of flip-flopping in the past, and Microsoft is yet again adding its name to the frowned upon list by retracting previous intentions to allow Windows Vista Home and Home Premium operating systems to run under virtualization. After reportedly stating that it would "change the EULA after listening to customer feedback on the issue," it appears that the suits in Redmond have thought better of said decision. Now, the firm has "reassessed the Windows virtualization policy and decided that maintaining the original policy announced last Fall" would be best. Ben Rudolph, Parallels director of corporate communications, noted that he was "obviously disappointed" in Microsoft's change of heart, but if the two-faced Mac users out there can persuade Google to take their side, we're sure this little spat could be cleared up in no time.

Microsoft changes their mind about allowing virtulization of Vista Home and Premium

No virtualization for home or premium? Is a ploy to take more money back from the consumer to buy the "super-duper-more-expensive" version so that you can do virtualization?
Microsoft ditches about-face on virtualization restrictions at 11th hour -

Microsoft this week was about to relent and allow the (legal) virtualization of Windows Vista Home Premium and Home Basic. Then the company pulled the plug on the announcement, but there are signs that a change is still possible.
