White Pearl of shopping wisdom

8 06 2009

TomTom, the Dutch company that brought us the innovative GPS car navigation system, plans to launch a device aesthetically aimed at women. The new edition ‘White Pearl’ named after its pearlised white colouring, comes with a handy silk drawstring bag and an EasyPort Mount Kit for the car.

Besides the usual route planner, touch-screen and safety camera alert function, the White Pearl device will include pre-installed points of interest to women. Categorised under names such as ‘Places to be Seen’ and ‘EverydayFashion’ it’ll provide route plans to the best eateries, entertainment spots and shopping centers.

Let’s just hope the White Pearl can find the fastest routes to the Summer Sales then it’ll definitely be a winner! Available from 11 June 2009.

All things bright and beautiful

5 06 2009

This morning I awoke with the sensation of butterflies in my stomach. Something that’s not familiar, particularly as I don’t get them before going to work every day! This was certainly an unusual feeling then it dawned on me. Last night, I got a gift from my partner. A brand new, spanking Samsung Notebook N110!

Its comes with 1GB to burn, a 10 inch LCD screen and a digital motion camera for taking Daily Mug Shots. But best of all, its lightweight and white (pearlised, I think they call it) and just I love it! No longer do I have to lug my Sony laptop around with me. Instead, I can just pop my notebook into my handbag and go.

So, I’m christening my notebook with this first post which also, gives me the opportunity to show off – check out the picture.

Goodbye laptop, hello netbook

2 02 2009

Article originally published by Jack Schofield, The Guardian

‘Women and children first” is not a cry you hear often from computer companies: they know male geeks and gamers are more profitable targets. But handbag- and schoolbag-sized netbooks are the latest craze. They’re cheap, too, unless you want the £850 Sony Vaio P.

Asus got the market started in 2007 with its dinky Eee notebook PC. This had a 7in screen, like a portable DVD player, and a tiny keyboard to match. Which was fine, because Asus was selling them to schools for use by quick-fingered children. Grown-ups quickly became interested: they cost only £200. So Asus and Acer brought out new models with bigger screens and more user-friendly keyboards.

Other companies noticed sales were taking off and brought out their own mini-notebooks, which by then we had decided to call netbooks. Today’s examples have 10.2in screens, plus built-in Wi-Fi. Increasingly they’ll also connect via the 3G phone network (in which case look for a netbook that takes a Sim card).

These machines are less powerful than full-fledged PCs. They are not good for serious gaming, video processing, or cracking secret codes before breakfast. They are, however, fine for web browsing, word processing, email, instant messaging, Skype, and using the fast-growing range of online applications. Which is what most people do.

Unlike conventional laptops, which are increasingly 17in monsters, netbooks are light enough for you to carry around without noticing the weight. That may be bad news for physiotherapists, but it’s good for everybody else.
