What is this? Google putting out a laptop? A Chrome Based Laptop?
And here we all thought netbooks were dead and the time of the Tablet was before us.
The new Google Laptop looks like your standard Laptop, has your standard laptop dimensions, and has the selling points of a netbook. It will showcase the Google Chrome OS and lack many of the typical features common to laptops and desktops such as optical drives and the Windows operating system.
All in all a very enticing machine.
Or more precisely prevents recurring alarms from going off on new years. Of course sensational headlines ever since New Years have continually pushed the rumor that either the new iPhone 4 stopped working completely or that the phone was incapable of detecting the new year.
Of course the problem was resolved promptly:
Apple spokesperson Natalie Harrison confirmed to Macworld that Apple is aware of the problem. “We’re aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2,” Harrison said. “Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.”

Rumors of the iPad 2 are beginning to emerge. One of Apples manufacturing plants in China has apparently confirmed the shipement of anywhere between 400,000-600,000 iPads between the months of February and April.
According to Digitimes, their sources revealed that Foxconn’s plant in Shenzhen, China, has recently been notified that they will be shipping the iPad 2 within the next 100 days, with initial shipments to reach 400,000-600,000 units.
As with most Apple products, the iPad will most likely feature the technology of another Apple product, notably the iPod Touch with its front facing camera and retina display.
The iPad 2 is likely to go the way of the newly launched iPod Touch 4th Gen and feature a front-facing camera (no doubt this will support its FaceTime video calling technology). Some rumours also suggest that Qualcomm will provide chips that allow the iPad 2 to run on both CDMA and GSM networks, making its reach even greater (the current 3G version is GSM only).
Either way, the current iPad is a top Christmas seller, theres no reason to believe that the iPad 2 won’t fly off the shelves of your local Best Buy.
