Walgreens is selling a Tablet

Surprised? Ok, here is the link, check it. The Maylong M150 is an entry level Android (1.6) Tablet, if we can call in this way this 400MHz processor device. Now, if you are one of those that do not understand the popularity of the iPad, I invite you to read the reviews in that product page. People love the simplicity in any device. And even Android 1.6 is able to please most of the users out there. It's like a video that I found the other day about a 90 years old man that got an iPad from his daughter. The old man was still using an old PC with MSDOS and WordPerfect. The iPad was his first contact with Google and Internet. The rest you can imagine it. He was super happy because the iPad was a very friendly and easy to use machine. Easier than MSDOS where he needed a bunch of stickers with notes reminding him how to do stuff and the hot keys of the few programs he was using. After that, to comprehend the reason of those reviews in a machine which battery only last 2 hours and that apparently is not too good playing videos is not that difficult. People sometimes do not need sophisticated devices to accomplish they few things they do and need in Internet.

Inside a MacBook Air

Recently the webpage IFixIt bought a MacBook Air with the only purpose to show what Apple worked very hard to hide: the inside of this machine. Many of you sure have hear about the 5 battery life on this machine but what I have not noticed is somebody saying that we are talking about a battery that cannot be replaced by the user. 5 hours is not that much for many which netbooks are the only one and main PC. So keep that in mind. It seems that Apple's engineers try hard to get the maximum battery life following the same design applied in the iPad. The battery of the Air virtually occupies more than 70% of the bottom area of this machine. Beside the iPad battery I never has seen something that big in proportion with the machine.

Browsing in an iPad is a terrible experience - Part VI

I was looking for a Seafood restaurant that I visited with a friend around 10 years ago but that left on me a very good impression. I was happy to found that La Minutera already had a web page! But... Too good to be true.

I developed for Windows Mobile for long time so part of my heart is with this platform. I still don't know if I'll continue developing for it. There are many thing that have changed from absurd fees to a long time lost by MS that made many of us to look into other things to keep our minds occupied.

Let's hope Microsoft all the best for now...

Hard to believe but pictures are there

Gizmodo has posted few pictures or screenshots taken from Google Street View in Brazil that are really unbelievable. I read one time a rumor about a wife found cheating when a Google car capture a picture of man leaving her house using a window instead of the front door. But look at this picture...

This seems to be a hit and run! According to Gizmodo, Google is removing them as soon as users make this findings public.

The part I liked most of all was the Power On button.
