Rumors are floating around about the possible coming Google Operation System. I am rather reluctant to believe in such a rumor, but it is quite clear now Google is definitely not just a search engine!
The desktop widgets in Konfabulator or Dashboard use the concept of showing information gathered from the Internet in a nice Desktop application environment, and the eyeOS just does an opposite thing by bringing a desktop environment into a web browser.
The web and the desktop is merging together, and we’ll see more integrations in the near future. I bet.
Are you in Halloween spirits yet? Prepared for the trick or treat?
In case you are still not aware of the coming holiday, get ready for some pumpkin fun!
You may have seen this Powerpoint show, PumpkinFaces.pps , sometime ago. But still it is fun to watch all these faces carved on the pumpkins
The artist who cut all the pumpkins can be found at pumpkingutter.com
Take a look at the FAQ section, you’ll find that the Powerpoint file was not made by the artist himself. And the show keeps drawing more and more visitors to his site and i guess that’s just the power of Internet, isn’t it?
With all the rumors floating around, Apple released two major new updates:
one is the long-waited video iPod, which attracts all the attention from the media.
the other one is an iMac, with a remote control and build-in iSight, making it essentially a Media Center.
According to a CNN news report, last quarter Apple sold 6.5 million iPods! Geez, they are doing pretty well!
Hopefully, with all the money they make from iPod, Apple would bring out an even better operation system. I like the 10.4 Tiger, but I am kind of reluctant to upgrade from Panther, just because of all the software incompatibility. Anyway, i am still waiting to see more from Apple
UPDATE on 10-21-2005:
Wow! Apple released a new line of PowerMac: Two dual-core G5 chips = QUAD processors! This is way cool. But I guess many people would wait for the Intel Macs. With hyperthreading, two dual-core Intel chips would be equal to 8 processors (rumor here)!
