First the good news. It’s the new Commodore 128PC. A computer breakthrough with all the power of its competition at half the price. The commodore 128PC has the same memory as the IBM PCJr or the Apple IIc. It has 80 column color capability. The IBM PCjr doesn’t. It’s expandable to 512K of memory. The […]
By Jimmy Rogers (@me) Contributing Writer, [GAS] It’s that time of year again! The sun is shining, the frogs are croaking, and the Apples are slowly ripening. Not the kind that you eat, but the kind with which you listen to music! On June 8th, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will return to San Francisco and […]
Apple’s iPhone app vetting has taken another knock with one product removed to avoid a lawsuit and another accepted after initially being banned for spurious reasons. The changes come as bloggers note that iPhone app developers have the chance to outperform Google – but at the same time stand little chance of making much cash. […]

PCs with no viruses, crashes, or headaches? According to Apple, this doesn’t seem to exist. But we all know that’s mostly lying propaganda, don’t we?
Trent Reznor has prevailed in a row with Apple – and it could be good news for Eric Cartman. The Nine Inch Nails frontman had reacted angrily after the company rejected an update to the official iPhone application for the band. Apple explained that it had rejected the app for inappropriate content, specifically the inclusion […]
Ok, this guy is obviously taking things a little too far, but still, we get the message. I’ve always been a big fan of the X300 myself. For portability in the corporate world, there’s no better option. Oh and one thing Haurum, the X300 is a Lenovo machine, not IBM. IBM has stopped manufacturing laptops […]
As we noted last week, Apple’s vetting procedure for its iPhone app store is mysterious to say the least. While the decisions have involved everything from technical to licensing issues, the company appears to be particularly inconsistent on matters of taste. It rejected an official South Park app which would have delivered clips of the […]
