XO Laptop II

June 3, 2008

“With the XO (1.0), we pushed the boundaries of what a laptop could be by lowering the cost dramatically, being green (no heavy metals, lowest energy consumption ever), and a human-driven unique design approach.
Now, with XOXO (2.0), we are challenging what a truly collaborative and creative computing experience could be … a true departure from the traditional keyboard and screen layout, a new way to interface and play with data, information and communication.”
The OLPC idea created a trend for UMPC and 8″ laptops and Acer Asus selling the hugely popular Eee PC. How will this OLPC II motivate the world with this time?

Apple MacBook Air

January 29, 2008

The MacBook Air. It’s a full-size notebook encased in the 0.4 – 1.94 cm of sleek, sturdy anodised aluminium. And at just 1.36 kg, There’s no CD drive, one usb port and very little else. A new feature called Remote Disc lets you wirelessly use or “borrow” the optical drive of a Mac or PC in the vicinity… Do downloads, watch movies and handle installations wirelessly, back up files wirelessly using Apple’s new Time Capsule.
All so nice and advance… from SGD2988. Maybe I just buy an Asus Eee for a sixth of the price and dream the day I have too much disposable income… I mean I loved it but it really is not for the common people on the street.

AMP Universal Speaker

October 6, 2007


AMP is a universal active speaker for Ipod or laptops. The AMP refers to the time before transistor radios. Back then, radios looked like giant pieces of furniture, since it took a lot of space to put all the technology needed.

The AMP is equipped with a mosfet amplifier and a 3-way speaker cone-set. The audio jack ensures the freedom to connect any portable music device whatsoever.
Since it’s so big, it can become a table too.
