MC2 Post 1413 Apple Shoots For small and Google Shoots for BIG and Dense

Google 10-inch Tablet Would Push Display 
Tech Envelope  

Web Giant's Tablet Partnership with Samsung could Muscle in on 
Apple's Technological Leadership Turf.

Google's tablet partnership with Samsung could yield some cutting-edge component tech, not the least of which is the pixel-packing display.

The 10.1-inch tablet -- expected in the first half of next year -- should boast a pixel density that is higher than any tablet on the market now. That includes the 8.9-inch display on the Kindle Fire HD and the 9.7-incher on Apple's third-generation iPad.

But it won't be a cakewalk for Samsung to get there: squeezing a 2,560x1,600 pixel density screen into a 10.1-inch tablet will push the display-manufacturing tech envelope -- not unlike the manufacturing feats Apple demands from its production partners.

The company's smaller tablet will reportedly come with a 7.85-inch screen, a Lightning connector, and thinner design than its predecessor.


Mozilla Re-Releases Firefox 16 After Patching Critical Bugs


Adobe Patches Flash Player in Massive Security Update

And I thought I was having problems when Adobe 
started pulling Flash from Mobile Devices...

Like my new Nexus 7 Tablet...


(   I do have a work-around, I'm running Flash on an
older Firefpx Beta where the Flash Plugin is
still available...  )

That means, of course, that I bounce around with 
Chrome ( the default browser on Nexus) , Opera 
( it seems snappier to me) and Two Firefoxes;
Regular and Beta (where Flash STILL Works).

Thanks Adobe...thanks.
