Facebook Launches Location Based Product
I turned this off as soon as I could.
I get social media. I really like most of it. However, I enjoy my fancy stereo and big screen TV too much to let people know when I am out of town or out of my house.
"Oh, I know that dude. He just bought a fat entertainment system and now his facebook says he's out of town for a month. Woot!"
Wikimedia Confusion Swirls In Wake of Porn Charges
"Though he remains the president of the Wikimedia Foundation, Wales is no longer able to delete files, remove administrators, assign projects or edit any content, sources say. Essentially, they say, he has gone from having free reign over the content and people involved in the websites to having the same capabilities of a low-level administrator."
Ignorance of the Masses => Democracy
Will we actually notice any changes?
OS X On the MSI Wind
Power management/Sleep work normally for the most part. The only difference from actual Apple hardware, is that you need to tap the power button to wake from sleep, as opposed to screen lid, mouse movement or space tap. Fans work properly, same as on a macbook. They kick in on heavy CPU usage and high temps. However, I must say, the device keeps very cool most of the time. Other pluses include Portability & Price. The 6 cell battery gets you around 5 hours of usage.
* Core image
* Core animation
* Core audio
* Video Out & Graphics in general
* Wired Ethernet
* Internal Speakers
* SD Card Slot
* Function Keys
Not able do perform Major OS point upgrades. There is no support for this. Warranty becomes Void. You are totally on your own. Web Cam, Wifi & Bluetooth, need to be activated via the function keys before the OS will see them (very PC like). The trackpad feels a little clunky, however I prefer a small mouse (wired or bluetooth). If you try to save a few dollars by going with the 3 cell battery, you will only get 2 hours of usage.
* Internal Microphone
* Microphone port
* Headset port
OS X On the MSI Wind
I read and saw the videos about triple booting with MSI wind back in August. He's got a video there and a bunch of hard to grab OS X drivers. If you are going to purchase a MSI wind, please note the issues with the non synaptics trackpads in some circumstances.
You will need an extra stick of RAM, DVD drive, and WLAN card as well. This hack will get you up to OS X 10.5.4. The hackint0sh community is usually a point release or two behind.
The planetx64 version also has problems with the internal mic, the microphone port and the headset port.
