"When the product does come out later this year, bear in mind that it's a 1.0, there are other new features on the way, and it's built for the AOL user in mind. That said, I'm not one who shies away from speaking my mind. There are some really cool features in the product at launch. RSS support will be in 1.0, along with a bunch of other stuff that I'm not going to tell you about. Ok, I'll tell you one - you can send an IM to a bot and have it post to your blog with rich text support and other cool stuff (like add titles, etc). "
We knew they were coming. I seems that this will be called journaling rather than blogging.
I think that there still lots of room to play in this area. JRobb thinks they spent $20m on this! And that's so far!
There was a log in the word doc version of the WMD dossier, apparently 4 people edited it. Now the UK Government have wised up...
"Perhaps coincidentally, he said, many of the older Word format documents on the 10 Downing Street site have now been removed and replaced with PDF versions."
The BBC are really having-a-go at Tony's crack-pots. Deservedly.
"Earlier in in the year, JVC announced the GR-HD1, the first camcorder to capture video in high definition TV standard."
I use my little 1.3 megapix digital dream to shoot little snips of video. I've a 64 meg card (I could go up to 560MB or so) and I can shoot maybe 15 minutes, I've never yet filled this new card!
Sure the quality's not so good at around 350 x 285 pix, but for handiness, and that I've always got it in my pocket, I cannot fault it. I've VHS-C camera too, but that's only for special occasions, not the little snippets of life that I like to shot.
One day soon, stills, video, video conferencing, phone, email, web, mp3, probably even editing will all be in one tiny device. We all know this. In the meantime the makes are trying to guess what's important to a demographic and squeezing two or three functions into a small enough device.
Now, why video cameras haven't a sim card hole for a phone, I don't know. And I don't see much in the way of Bluetooth in this article or in many others I've read so far. Why-oh-why can't we yet Bluetooth these devices together?
"The US government "remains concerned" that Microsoft is making it difficult for rivals to access Windows despite being ordered to open up its software." It's the rates, and royality structure, that's under question, plus the fact that they're dragging their feet. And some people are saying Microsoft has changed. Bollocks.
