Wow this is so funny, I guess the windows live mobile marketing department is not on the same page as the CEO or the windows live mobile web-team as they mocked-up what your mobile experience would look like on a mobile phone, but instead of using a real phone, they used an iPhone to show-off their smart design.
Apple released Safari 4 Beta to the public, I quickly downloaded, installed and restarted my Mac Pro, this application runs very fast. I wanted to see how fast it really is hence I ran a Benchmark test provided by SunSpider.
Here are some results from the Benchmark results SunSpider.
The only think lacking would be the ability to add extensions and add-ons like firefox supports. If safari had these abilities I wouldn’t need firefox.
In the latest news Hulu asked Boxee to remove their content off their Media Application, Official response from Hulu
“Two weeks ago Hulu called and told us their content partners were asking them to remove Hulu from Boxee,” Boxee said in the post. “We tried (many times) to plead the case for keeping Hulu on Boxee, but on Friday of this week, in good faith, we will be removing it. You can see their blog post about the issues they are facing.”
Hulu, the video site formed by NBC Universal and News Corp., said in a note on its blog that the problem rest with their content partners.
“Our content providers requested that we turn off access to our content via the Boxee product,” Hulu wrote. “We are respecting their wishes.”
Boxee CEO Avner Ronen told CNET News that he was disappointed by the decision and attempted to convince Hulu executives that Boxee was good for the video site and its content partners.
“I hope that they will realize the opportunity is greater than the threat,” Ronen said
What exactly that threat is was unknown to Ronen and Hulu didn’t spell out the reason its content partners were down on Boxee in its blog post.
Hulu’s decision to leave TV.com, owned by CBS (parent company of CNET News), is unrelated to the decision to pull out of Boxee, said a source familiar with the negotiations. Hulu said that in the case of TV.com, it was a contractual issue. As for Boxee, Hulu was forced to honor the request of its content providers, the source said.
I know you’ve been reading all this news on how the new iPhone will be coming out in June since we’ve found a hint to a code update on the firmware 2.2.1 which was released just a few days ago. As the initial iPhone is referred to as iPhone 1,1 and the iPhone 3G is iPhone 1,2 the new firmware hints at an iPhone 2,1 which means a complete overhaul of the iPhone internals.
Here is what I think is going to happen on the new iPhone:
- better camera (with faces) possibly an auto-focus
- video recording at at least 480p or 720p (its’ possible with a 4mp lense
- better battery life
- 32GB space
- snow-leopard based OS
- faster graphics and cpu Continue reading “iPhone 2,1 Gen:3”
ART STUDIOS ENTERTAINMENT MEDIA (ASEM), the company behind the EFI-X UEFI dongle, has severed its relationship with EFI-X USA LLC, its North American distributor.
The whole situation started when EFi-X™ Usa started peddling generic PCs with pre-installed OS X and the EFI-X dongle.
This upset ASEM which sought to block the American shop from selling machines. A falling out of sorts ensued and, as of the 12th of January, ASEM has come forward and denounced the EFIX USA business model as breaching its NDA and terms & conditions.

Google updated their Maps UI today with a lot cleaner look’n’feel and icons + sliderbar, add some much needed clarity and class to it. The person on top of the slider bar enables the streetview for you and starts in full-screen. This also might be because Google has streetview almost all of the US and want to make it easier for users to access the feature. Plus with the new release of iPhone firmware update 2.2 streetview feature has been included.
This is definitely a step towards cleaner much refined application user interface.
I’d guess there’s a new UI designer on board at google, always looking forward to cleaner more user-friendly applications on the web.

The much-criticized BMW iDrive central control dashboard has been updated to its fourth version, and it seems that this time they have got it right. Abandoning the previous compass-based user interface, the new iDrive adopts the hierarchical vertical menu system of the iPod, mixing it with an interface similar to the Xbox 360. Apart from the faster navigation this provides, they have also included new features to make it faster and more useful. Continue reading “Xbox 360 + iPod = Bmw iDrive 4.0”
