Opera Unite browser offers cloud-based file, media sharing

After Apple made such bold claims about Safari 4 during their WWDC keynote last week, it was only a matter of time until another browser company came along and claimed to "reinvent the web".  Opera have done just that with Opera Unite, a cloud-based system integrated with the company's browser, that synchronizes user data - including files, music, photos and notes - and makes it available to any internet-connected browser.

Samsung Mondi gets ARM11 CPU: doubts over MID performance

Samsung Mondi gets ARM11 CPU: doubts over MID performance

Samsung's Mondi WiMAX MID had something of a stretched out launch - first being demonstrated at MWC as the SWD-M100, then getting a quiet mention through the company's own RSS image feed, before Samsung finally came clean early this month.  What we haven't known until now is the processor powering the Mondi, and anybody hoping for something esoteric and interesting will be disappointed: it's an 800MHz ARM11 chip.

More Wii internet tomfoolery – Opera 9.0 pre-installed

More Wii internet tomfoolery – Opera 9.0 pre-installed

Thanks to some lateral thinking on the part of a Wii owner comes the news that much-admired web browser Opera 9.0 is preloaded on Nintendo's latest console.  Apparently the WiiLi.org forum member set up a local DNS server that redirected oss.shop.wii.com to his own webserver, whereupon a simple javascript function displayed the browser's User Agent string.

There's also a video (after the cut) showing how another creative Wii owner circumnavigated the previous hassle of redirecting the console's shopping page to google, by instead getting his wireless router to intercept and forward on any request for the shop to the search engine.

Nintendo DS Opera Browser released in Europe

Nintendo DS Opera Browser released in Europe

In what actually amounts to a short delay compared to many launches, European users of Nintendo's DS now can get their hands on the Opera web browser that Japanese owners have been surfing with since February this year.  £30 (or €40) gets you the much-vaunted browser which can operate in two-modes - either stretching a webpage across both top and bottom displays, or showing the full page on one display and a magnified section on the other.
