Sneak Peek at the New iMac

Filed under: News — admin @ 2:11 pm

What’s a 5K screen? Apparently it’s very beautiful. I can’t tell by reading the article because my computer doesn’t have a 5K screen. Therefore I must trudge over to the Apple Store to have a looksee.

Hot on the heels of Amazon Fire TV is the Google Player, a gizmo that brings Chrome and Android to an Internet-ready TV near you.

Google Glass Withdrawal

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:31 am

I’m not certain whether this story is bogus or not (I don’t know the British papers), but apparently a man wore his Google Glass gizmo nearly 24 hours every day. He is now suffering from withdrawal symptoms when he doesn’t wear the device. He even dreams about it.

Add Symantec to the growing list of Silicon Valley companies bifurcating themselves into separate units. First came Hewlett-Packard, which is spinning off its computer/printer business from other core activities.

No, the new companies won’t be Hewlett and then Packard.

Next came eBay, which is ejecting PayPal.

Today the announcement comes that Symantec is ejecting the Norton branch of their operations from their archiving, backup and other activities.

Who’s next?
