    John is pretty hopped up on this stuff, so I’ll continue the trend. The undersea cables that were cut last week will, hopefully, soon be back up and running.

FLAG Telecom, an Indian-owned cable network operator released this statement: “FLAG repair team is operating in… Read More

  • Apple Store is down: battle stations, everyone

    It is Tuesday and we’ve been hearing mumblings about an update to the MacBook Pro line. I’m not too sure what else it could, but I doubt it’s going to be anything mind blowing. I guess I’ll just throw it out there as I’m sure some of you might think it’s a 16GB iPhone. The 16GB Touch has been around long enough. Looks like all country stores are up, but ours. Read More

    Some interesting new figures have been released by eMarketer today that shows that podcasts are taking off in both traffic and revenue, and the outlook is even better again.

  • NEC has those new LCD monitors you asked for, sir


    I had an NEC CRT monitor for years and it never did me wrong. Got it with my first Alienware system in late 2000 and it stuck with me till I got my Dell LCD (It was just time) and even now I look back on it with fondness. So I can recommend NEC as a brand but I can’t speak just yet to the quality of their LCD monitors. The specs look good, though: 16:10 wide screen, 5ms response time… Read More
