MacBook Air – Hit or Miss?

Macboo Air - Thinnovation

I’ve been thinking about this new laptop and I dunno if it’s what the industry needs right now…

Who is Apple’s target market? Let’s start with students, this definitely not for them! Compared with the Macbook, this one has no CD drive (most widely used hard media in school), wired connection deficient (Only one USB port and no ethernet), slower processor and its $300 more! How about the prosumers, again not for them! For most of the same reasons as students.

I mean if they are trying to break into the Ultra Mobile PC market this missed by about 6 or 7 inches. Size matters in that department, not only thickness and weight, length and width too. I really thought with Apple’s knack in UI, they could have fixed many of todays UMPC shortcomings! Maybe that’s the iPhone already but what is this one for? Some rich writer who just has to have the latest and greatest?

My Verdict is: This is an air ball of a  MISS!

What do you think? Look at it here.

One of the coolest watches ever!

URWERK - 201 Pt Black

Crafted in a very limited edition of ten, the 201 Pt Black is an extremely exclusive model. The individual watches are not numbered but instead come with a certificate of authenticity confirming that the watch is ‘one of ten’ timepieces.

Rubik’s Cube Solved By Lego Mindstorms Robot

Lego Rubik’s Solver

Two of my favourite toys, working together to bring back 80s nostalgia. One Daniele Benedettelli built this robot and wrote the code to crack Rubik’s. He calls it the Lego Rubik Utopy, and did it using an IDA* heuristic search algorithm, of course. It’s all available to download and build yourself. All you need is a computer, a Lego Mindstorms NXT kit, a Rubik’s Cube, and a Computer Science and Engineering PhD.

Watch Watching: Top 25 New Faces

I feel like setting up a separate category just for watches. I would love to own every single watch on this list. Some are beautiful, some are technical marvels, some are insanely creative, some are useless, and some are all of the above. My favourite idea is the JITWatch that tells you how much time you need. It knows where you are, what’s next on your calendar, and how much time it will take to get there, even considering traffic. It looks a bit big and lab-experimental, but people used to say that about the cell phone too… If you just want cool design, the O-Ring Watch looks pretty hot in a Kubric 2001 kind of way. Prices range from $80 to $220,000.

Gonzo iPod

Gelaskins, removable vinyl skins for protecting and customizing portable devices, look great on iPods and laptops, and come in many art loving varieties. I’m eying this vintage Ralph Steadman take on Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas. Or maybe this dark portrait of the Mario Brothers by Bob Dob. $14.95 and $32.95 (US) respectively.

How should Sony respond to this? How should Microsoft respond to this?
