Macbook Air – Why I’m Excited

Jan 18, 2008

The Macbook Air was just announced a couple of days ago, and it’s been stirring up quite a lot of commotion in the technology world.

I don’t want to go into any review of it or anything, because I’ve yet to see it in person. But it does excite me. It looks really good. The pure sleekness of it makes me already want to buy it.

But more than that, why I’m excited about it is because what it reflects for the future. More and more emphasis is being placed on portability and mobility. On making gadgets easier to carry around, while not compromising on computing power. And now we have a notebook that is 0.16-0.76 inches. It’s just making me wonder. What will it be like in 5-10 years? When I go out to the working world. What will technology be like? And the progress on contact lenses with circuits really pushes it the possibilities even further.

The possibilities are just mind blowing.

GPhone? Not quite

Nov 5, 2007

Google has just released an announcement about their mobile plans. And no it’s not a gPhone.

I’ll post my thoughts after more news gets in, and after I get the chance to read more about it. But just wanted to share my initial thoughts. Google seems to be pushing this concept of an open platform really hard. And I think it’s great that they’re doing that.
