Web OS: Still in the early stages

,----[ Quote ]
| Someday, in the not-too-distant-future, the Web will likely function more 
| like an operating system than the current collection of disassociated sites. 
| With a Web OS, Web applications will communicate with each other, you will 
| sign on to use services and applications just once and you will be able to 
| easily back up data from one site onto another.    



Linux To Regain 50% Netbook Market Share

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm sure some will dismiss Mr. Lim's projections as self-serving since Linpus
| is a Linux distributor heavily invested in the netbook market. It turns out
| Mr. Lim isn't alone in seeing Linux equal or even overtake Windows on
| netbooks. ABI Research sees it happening but they see it taking a bit longer
| than a year. They see Linux regaining dominance on netbooks by 2012. ABI
| cites the arrival of low-end ARM-based netbooks as part of the reason for a
| Linux resurgence. They also cite the arrival of Linux distributions designed
| for mobile devices, particularly Android and Moblin. Windows doesn't run on
| ARM processor based systems.
| While ARM has been getting lots of notice in the tech press a Spanish company
| called iUnika announced the first netbook with a MIPS processor (pictured).
| Linux already runs on MIPS processors. The support dates back to MIPS-powered
| SGI workstations running Linux back in the '90s. Windows, on the other hand,
| doesn't run on MIPS powered systems.

[News] Another Glimpse at Palm's Secret Linux-based in-development Palm OS II

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 OK Palm, We're Ready for the Foleo Now ,----[ Quote ] | Ok, back to the imagining: Your mobile | computer is great, but sadly the keyboard and | screen aren't that great for long form | typing. Sure, you can tweet your tweets, book | your face, and SMS your SMSers -- but even a | moderate length email starts to get annoying. | If only there were a way to get your pocket | sized computer onto a docking station. A | docking station with a battery. And a screen. | And a real keyboard. Just like the Palm Foleo | almost was! | | I'm not suggesting the Foleo should exist in | its original form. I'm suggesting Palm (or | Nokia?) design a sheath for their mobile | computers that could replace a netbook. | Really, do you ever have a netbook somewhere | you don't have your cellphone? Of course not. | Just think about the advantages a Foleo-like | device could offer the mobile geek: | | * A huge battery to charge the phone | while "docked." | * A big screen.

Instead, they said, | “it’s a smartphone and a very good one at | that.” In addition, they were also | impressed with the overall performance of | the OS. | | Similarly, T3 were highly impressed with | the overall functionality of the Nokia | N900, saying it was “better than any Nokia | handset we’ve seen in along time.” | | They added: “In terms of browsing and sheer | multitasking capability, it’s also superior | to other smartphone rivals.” `---- http://noknok.tv/2009/11/20/nokia-n900-review-roundup/ Nokia Focuses on Linux-based Maemo for High-end Smartphones ,----[ Quote ] | The talk of the town is Android.
