Expandable desktop Mac now available — but not from Apple

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Psystar OpenMac

Apple has abandoned the consumer desktop.

Well, that may be a bit harsh, after all there is the iMac, right?
Um, no.

One of the biggest segments of desktop machines is the gaming box.
Gamers want a machine they can open up and upgrade.
Better video cards, more memory, that sort of thing.
Exactly what the iMac does **not** provide.

Enter
Psystar’s
Open Computer
,
a Mac hardware clone, with a base price of $400.
This includes:

  • 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Processor
  • 2GB of DDR2 667 memory
  • Integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics
  • 20x DVD+/-R SATA drive that is Lightscribe-capable
  • 4 rear USB Ports

You’d think something like this would be case-and-desist’ed almost immediately,
but appreantly there are some
interesting legal wrinkles.

twhirl – twitter client

Monday, April 14th, 2008

twhirl

Ran across
twhirl
today because
Seesmic
bought them, and my good friend
Bear
is a Seesmic dev.
(Hi Bear!)

It’s an
Adobe Air
app, which is both good and bad (Air is not open, but there are Linux and Mac versions),
and seems to be the Twitter-client-du-jour.

I always do twitter-via-IM, so I’m not sure what benefits this would bring me.
Perhaps Twitter IMs are a bit too interrupting, although I’ve mitigated that somewhat by setting a custom sound for twitters, by which I know I don’t have to pay attention to the IM window that has popped up.

What do other people use to Twitter? IM? Twitter-specific clients?
If I was all blog-centric, I would put up a poll, but all I have are the comments below, so please add one!

Sony Bravia W4000 decodes AV-CHD

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Sony Bravia W4000

I was reading about the brand new Bravia W4000 when I saw this:


The Series also supports the extended xvYCC colour space for moving images that Sony says set to replace sRGB as the industry standard has an integrated HDTV tuner and AVC-HD decoder alongside the DVB-T digital tuner.

So not only does it support xvYCC, which I think you need for HDMI 1.3a,
but you can plug in flash memory from your fancy new AV-CHD HD camcorder and play it back!

At least, that’s what I am assuming this means..

The small model cost around $1,300 for the small one I think.

First DisplayPort card shipped

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

FireGL V7700

AMD has shipped
the first DisplayPort video card, the ATi FireGL V7700.

DisplayPort
is a new video connector that is supposed to replace DVI (which SVGA).
It allows for HD resolution and will be expanded to handle audio as well.

Sounds like HDMI to me..
