2GB LiveScribe Interview
Spoke to LiveScribe CEO Jim Jim Marggraff about the LiveScribe pen, which is like a mini computer in a pen. You write on the paper and it records what you are writing so you can download it to a PC, and you can record conversations and play them back. It is a great little unit.
My product of the week was the Samsung 305V notebook, which comes in at a very nice price point. Here are some of its features:
- New generation of notebook with speed to burn and power savings
- With the AMD APU processor set to make graphics (watching movies/home movies etc) best available
- Makes the notebook a true multimedia device
- Bezel just over 1cm so is super thin
- Instant power up button so no mucking around
- Better battery life due to the new AMD processor
- Uses Windows 7 Home Premium
- Battery life by using internal graphics for basic tasks
- Turns on the second graphics processor when you need it
If it is near the end of the month and you still have some of your data allowance to go, here are some suggestions to use it up:
- Up-date patches
- Download that piece of software you were planning to buy
- Watch a tonne of on videos
- Play a tonne of online games (if you’re so inclined)
Also, German-based Aussie retailer Aldi has announced a product - The Fission External 4-in-1 hard drive, DVD, USB and card reader device – has been withdrawn from sale because the operating system has a virus in it.
