Hardware icon Hardware | Netbooks causing problems for chip makers?
"Notebook computers are becoming the majority of computer system sales for many computer makers. With notebooks being such a large portion of sales a decline in notebook shipments and overall weakness in the segment can put a significant strain not only on the computer maker, but on chipmakers as well.

Reuters reports that the poor global economy is starting to be felt by chipmakers. Notebook makers and component suppliers in the U.S. and Asia are reportedly seeing declining order amounts and outright order cancellations. The orders that are being placed and the machines that are being purchased by consumers are skewing towards the low-end, low-cost netbook and notebook market.

At first, the netbook was cited by research firm IDC as a savior for the notebook market and was credited with helping to keep the market afloat in the tough economy. It didn’t take long for the realization to set in that the increasing sales of low margin netbooks would eat into the profitability of notebook makers and chipmakers. That reality is now setting in and analysts are changing earnings projections for some of the largest firms in the IT industry.

JoAnne Feeney, a chip analyst with FTN Midwest Securities, told Reuters, "Clearly the economic slowdown is spreading to notebooks and we're seeing it in two ways. One is in lower unit shipments, but also a mixed shift to cheaper units. And that's going to filter down through the semiconductor world."

Technology icon Technology | $99 iPhone Inevitable
I'm still not giving up my Blackberry!
"December 5, 2008 - According to comments made by an analyst for Kaufman Bros., a market research firm, the release of an economically friendly iPhone is a near certainty. While there is no doubt that Apple will continue to lower costs to some degree for more mainstreamed availability, Kaufman Bros. believes that the golden number is $99.

"While we are not sure of exact timing, we think a $99 Apple-branded cell phone is inevitable," analyst Shaw Wu wrote in a recent report. "As we mentioned in our initiation report, we believe one of the key things Apple needs to do to drive broader iPhone adoption is to build a more complete product line like it has done with the iPod."

Hardware icon Hardware | Intel Launches Cheap Quad-Core Chip
"Intel quietly launched a cheaper version of is Core 2 Quad processor over the Labor Day holiday, complementing it with a high-end dual-core Celeron.

The Q8200 is a 2.33-GHz quad-core chip with just 4 Mbytes of level-2 cache, the smallest L2 cache size Intel offers in its Core 2 Quad family. The chip is listed as $224 in 1,000-unit lots, making it the second cheapest Core 2 Quad processor Intel supplies.

The smaller cache size is likely to have a negative impact on performance, as cache memory is used to store frequently-accessed instructions. All of the Core 2 Quad chips contain either 6, 8, or12 Mbytes of level-2 cache. Neither Intel nor any independent testing organizations appear to have evaluated it using performance benchmarks.

Intel also released the Intel Celeron 450, a 2.2-GHz dual-core chip listed on Intel's price list as a "Celeron D," a name Intel once discarded. The Intel Celeron 450 is priced at $53 in 1,000-unit lots, making it the most expensive dual-core Celeron Intel sells.

The prices became effective on August 31."

Internet icon Internet | Google's new browser, Chrome
Better than Firefox?
"In response to the news that Google (GOOG) is releasing its own browser, code-named Chrome, I decide to call John Lilly, CEO of Mozilla, the folks behind the fast-growing Firefox browser. My intention was to find out what Lilly thought about this development, especially since Mozilla has been viewed as a close personal partner of Google's.

The open-source browser maker depends heavily on a lucrative financial deal it has signed with the search company. The pair recently renewed the deal to last through 2011. Was Lilly worried about yet another browser in the market?

After all, the emergence of Linux has had an equally deflationary impact on the UNIX market. Can a Google browser, promoted on Google homepage and pushed through Google's mobile OS, become a sticky wicket for Mozilla Firefox?"
