Fujitsu S2000
3 weeks ago, I posted regarding Fujitsu-Siemens is taking orders for their desktop models Esprimo E small form-factor PC and Esprimo P tower models with AMD processors, after just 2 weeks AMD filing suit against Intel. In fact, before this lawsuit been filed, AMD claimed that Fujitsu-Siemens was hiding its AMD computers on its website and removing all references to commercial AMD-powered products in the company’s retail catalog because Intel offered Fujitsu-Siemens a ‘special discount‘ on Celeron processors.

So, as we can see, Fujitsu-Siemens started taking order for desktop PC models and now Fujitsu started selling AMD Turionâ„¢ 64 based laptop on their website within only 1 month. :)

The Fujitsu LifeBook S2000 series features AMD Turionâ„¢ 64 mobile technology, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. With its 64-bit Turionâ„¢ processors, MT-28, S2000 runs at 1.6GHz with 512KB L2 cache. It has 512MB ( 2 x 256MB ) DDR333 memory too.

Yahoo Gonna Challenge Google AdSense

Thursday 4 August 2005 @ 2:48 am

Yahoo is planning to launch on Wednesday, August 3, 2005, its ad network for small Web publishers intended to compete against rival Google in text based ad. Google AdSense has been enjoying kind of monopoly in text based ad services since its launch, now Yahoo hopes to tap into the same ad territory.

In fact, Yahoo has been working on this self-serve advertising service tailored to bloggers and other small Web publishers for months before decided to launch it publicly.

Now Yahoo will play to that constituency and challenge Google’s pricing power in one of the fastest-growing online mediums: blogging. Like Google’s service, Yahoo’s self-serve product will display text ads deemed relevant to the content of specific Web pages. Advertisers pay only when a reader clicks on their ads. Yahoo and publishers will split the fees.

Hewlett-Packard (HP) announced on Monday, Aug 1, 2005, HP has decided to stop shipping HP branded iPod media players, which they started selling HP branded iPods in August 2004. Anyway, all warranties on iPods sold previously will still be honoured. HP plans to keep selling the music players until its current stock is depleted, which is expected to be around late September 2005.

“We have decided that selling the iPod does not fit within our current digital entertainment strategy,” HP consumer technology spokesman Ross Camp said.

However, Ross Camp declined to provide further explanation about the reasons for the contract cancellation. Besides, he denied this move will affect HP’s overall entertainment strategy as well. On the other hand, this contract cancellation will result a decline up to 5% of overall iPod sales according to data from Apple.

Ya, I know this is not the LATEST news anymore, but just in case you didn’t know about this, the next Windows will not be named Longhorn as planned, instead Windows Vista is the real name.

Microsoft announced on Last Friday, July 22, 2005, that Windows Vista will be the official name of the next version of its infamous operating system, and that beta 1 of the OS will arrive by August 3. The announcement actually was made on last Thursday afternoon at a briefing in Atlanta to some 10,000 Microsoft sales and service employees and then revealed this morning via a video posted on Microsoft’s Web site.

“So there’s no more Longhorn, we’re now officially Windows Vista,” Brian Valentine, senior vice president of Windows Core Operating System told the cheering crowd.
