MC2 Post 641: Technology Think Abouts

Technology Think Abouts 
(Like Australian walkabouts)

This is What the Pundits were Saying Just a Few Days Ago about Apple:

Apple will Kill the Macbooks, never have Multi-Tasking on the iPhone like the Droid Does and Never
have an alternate Browser on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Guess What, All that Changes with iPhone OS 4.  
Oh, and Apple confirms no future support for iPhone 2G.

Apple releases new MacBook Pros 
with Intel Core i7, i5 processors

The 1 Terabyte SSD Arrives (slashdot)

The Colossus is Here!!!

143 to 26 characters whoopee!

This Llareta plant, a Parsley Relative,

Apple is constantly keeping us on our toes, tech-wise.
I'm using Opera Lite on my iPod Touch, testing an app called AirMouse and an audio-iBook Reader called: AudioBooks.
