January 24th, 2008 2 comments

No it is not and I think it kicks ass. It is easy, simple, and very user friendly to use or to learn. To backup my claim, Colin Mock, the famous writer, has published a new article in InsideRIA that backups my claim and pitches all the hype around AS3.0.

MacWorld 2008: MacBook Air

January 16th, 2008 No comments

The internet crashed during Steve Jobs keynote, which didn’t even happen during Bill Gate’s last speech a week ago. Big service provider websites have crashed during the keynote such as Twitter, StumbleUpon and CrunchGears. They couldn’t handle weight of all Apple fans trying to know the latest from Apple and as soon as possible.

Apple announced the new MacBook Air, an uber ultra-portable notebook. But the problem people are bitching about all over the blogosphere is the battery built-in(Up to 5 hours), you have to hand over your MacBook to Apple to replace the battery if anything happened to it. However, Macbook Air supports multi-touch pad, bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and 802.11n WiFi. Ultimately, it will only cost $120 to change the battery but I don’t think people would like to hand over their laptop and not using it for few days, especially with all these geeks out there wanting to touch it! This beauty machine will cost around $1,800 and add like $20 for extra add-ons. I think it is cheap for an environment-friendly laptop with mercury free LCD! totally recyclable. Actually, there are different prices for different options, you can preorder it at Apple Store.
