Google Apps For Your Domain: Ready, Set, Stop!

Google Apps For Your Domain: Ready, Set, Stop!

At first glance, Google Apps for Your Domain looks fantastic for small to medium size businesses. It’s hard to pass on anything that’s free from Google. What can be better than free email, free scheduling package, free Office tools such as Page Creator, Writely and Spreadsheet? Well, the freeness in Google’s offerings comes at a price - privacy and flexibility. Before taking the leap of Google faith, take a close look at the privacy disclosure. Proceed with caution if you don’t see any immediate red flags popping up. I sure did after finding out that we must change our MX records to point to Google’s servers. Thank you, but no thanks Google.

Chumby – your new bedside pal

Chumby – your new bedside pal

On a typical night, the contents of my bedside table generally amounts to a glass of water, an alarm-clock, my cellphone and the various meds I'm forced to take lest the demons inside reek their havoc on my loved ones. Well, it turns out that I could replace at least the alarm-clock with this adorable Chumby.

"What's a Chumby?" I hear you mutter, your mouth full of figs and bile. Well, a Chumby is an open-source computer-cum-clock designed to run tiny Flash widgets, pulling down information from the internet through its built-in wifi connection. Based around a 266 MHz CPU with 32MB SDRAM and 64MB Flash RAM, there are a variety of programs that can display anything from flickr photos to rss feeds on the 320 x 240 3-inch touchscreen. Internet radio is catered for with 2W speakers, so that you can be roused each day to the strains of obscure Bolivian harmonica-jazz, and there're two USB ports should the overwhelming need for expansion come upon you.

Jabra Bluetooth Headset Review

Jabra Bluetooth Headset Review

Everybody knows that driving while talking on your cellphone is generally a bad idea.  Sadly not everybody has stopped doing it.  Still, if you're going to be legal and still talk you'll want a headset, probably a Bluetooth one at that.

The shiny happy folks over at MobileBurn have reviewed Jabra's BT500, successor to the highly popular and respected (though ageing) BT250.  Yes, it might look a little "Star Trek", but in use much of the bulk is hidden behind the ear making it actually less obvious than conventional headsets.

Pink PSP Coming in October?

Pink PSP Coming in October?

Pink is in and Sony is smart to market towards the other half of the population – women. Recent survey revealed that women prefer a new plasma television to diamond. How about a Pink PSP over a tennis bracelet? I guess the answer to that depends on what she wants at the moment. Sony seem to think that young women associate confidence and powerful attitude with a Pink PSP, and goes on to say “The Association with Pink, a worldwide icon and musical chameleon, will enable PSP to push new boundaries.” All right Sony, we hear you, you have deep pockets and can do as you wish, all hail to Sony.

Daily Wrap-up for 08/25/2006

Daily Wrap-up for 08/25/2006

Wow, Friday was a good day for a couple of new announcements. Out of nowhere, the Zune showed up on FCC website as “Toshiba 1098”. The Blackberry Pearl 8100 spec was spread eagle for all to see! There is more bad press about PS3 production woes, while Vertu is soon to announce an affordable fashion phone (the term affordable is so relative). The ASUS R2H got a formal welcome into the world of UMPC-hood, good luck and may the force be with you. How about Samsung’s announcement of the 1.98-inch 400ppi VGA screen for cell phone? If that doesn’t give you a boner, then you’ve got some issues! Speaking of boner, how about that monstrous 100-inch TFT-LCD display from LG? Then there’s the PSP GPS add-on that sticks out like a sore thumb. Oh yes, tune in the morning of Sept 12 for the latest breaking news of Palm’s new Treo. What a great week of news coverage!
