Busy week for Google

Wow, what a week for Google!

T-Mobile G1/GPhone

Of course, the G1 was released this week. I was waiting for the dust to settle down to find out if this was an iPhone killer or not. From what I've seen on CrunchGear with their roundup, it's pretty close, but not quite an iPhone. There are some features missing that may sway a consumer one way or another.

I'm still wrestling with paying $179 for the phone with a $25/$35 a month bill.

Problem Solved! Acer Aspire Shutting Down

Ah-HA! An excellent post from a Linux community.

September 18th, 2008 at 10:00am — Comments: (9) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Mobile

Acer Aspire One NetbookMy parents came back into town because of a recent death in the family and brought, of course, both laptops. For a recap of what happened before, check my past laptop experience with my parents.

The laptop my father was using was the Acer Aspire 5315. He didn't want all of the software on the computer. I found the OS disk, backed up his data, reformatted his hard drive, and voila! He had a clean machine.

The one piece of software I didn't install was the most critical piece of software he needed: The Acer ePower Management Utility.

Acer Aspire One Purchased

The new Acer Aspire One is definitely small enough for the road, but is it good enough for my parents?

September 8th, 2008 at 6:00am — Comments: (3) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Mobile

Acer Aspire One NetbookI recently had a visit from my parents. They were having problems with their laptop because it kept shutting down right in the middle of doing something important: email.

After they were here for a couple of days, I noticed first hand when the Acer laptop would shut down. I couldn't explain why it was happening. Possibly the battery pack or the power cord.

Eventually, I couldn't take anymore and started looking for a replacement for my parents while they were here. Because they sure weren't getting mine. :-)

FIRE! Sony VAIOs are recalled

Why does a CarFax commercial come to mind?

September 4th, 2008 at 6:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Mobile

Sony VAIO Laptop For those who own a Sony VAIO, I would definitely make a call to Sony for replacing your laptop. Sony is recalling 73,000 VAIO laptops due to burn hazard. The recall involves faulty wiring where the computer hinge is located, resulting in short-circuiting or burning the user.

The laptops involved include the VGN-TZ100, VGN-TZ200, VGN-TZ300, and VGN-TZ2000.

The interesting thing about the recall is that it only affects certain laptop models. Even if you have a model listed above, you still need to call Sony and find out if you laptop needs serviced or not.

How to create the ultimate Windows XP Installation CD/DVD

Make the most of your Windows XP installation with this handy tutorial.

anewmorning.com posted a quick tutorial on how to create the Ultimate Windows XP installation CD/DVD and it looks pretty thorough.

However, even though the tutorial is thorough, I didn't see any links to the supporting software to create the ultimate installation CD/DVD.

I haven't ran through the tutorial, but it's bookmarked when I get some time to dedicate to it.

You will be missed, Randy Pausch

Randy Pausch passed away recently (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008)

July 29th, 2008 at 9:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: General

For those who haven't heard of this fantastic speaker, Randy Pausch was a Carnegie Mellon Professor and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His doctor said that he was expected to live around 3-6 months.

When he gave his "Last Lecture" on September 18, 2007, he focused on Achieving your Childhood Dreams instead of talking about his cancer.

His lecture is nothing short of monumental and is something everyone should watch and absorb. If you take his perspective on life, I guarantee you will be successful.
