Dual Screen Laptop

A Japanese company will begin selling their unique dual screen 10.1 inch widescreen laptop on December 11th.

Cute and all, probably conveniently portable, but with a price tag of $900+, why not just by 2 netbooks or a regular 15.4 laptop?

This must be the tech trend of the future.

Google SMS

Now that I have a real keyboard on my phone, I can get jiggy with text messages. So exactly what kind of fun can I have with that?

Bauer told me that he’s been using Google SMS for years. (Man, I’ve been out of it with the stupid flip phone I had)

What is Google SMS? Seems you can get directions, weather, restaurant information and just a whole bunch of stuff.

I just set my default location by texting SET LOCATION to North Park, San Diego, CA. Next I’ll play with driving directions. Check it out!

Thanks Bauer!

Windows 7 System Repair Disc

System recovery options can help you repair Windows if a serious error occurs, such as corruption of the OS. To use system recovery options, you’ll need a Windows installation disc or access to the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer. If you don’t have either of those choices, you can create a system repair disc to access system recovery options.

Now that Windows 7 is out, you are going to need a System Repair Disc handy.

If you have an extra system and want to check it out for yourself, it’s worth the registration to download it.

Facebook Hijacking

(CNN) -- Hundreds of Facebook groups have been hijacked in recent days by users pointing out what they say is a weakness in how the social-networking site handles the administration of its groups.

By Tuesday morning, 286 groups had apparently been renamed Control Your Info and had a new message posted to their walls.

"Hello, we hereby announce that we have officially hijacked your Facebook group," the message reads. "This means we control a certain part of the information about you on Facebook. If we wanted we could make you appear in a bad way which could damage your image severely [sic]." Nice!

Starting Nov. 15th,  Verizon plans to double its early termination fee (ETF) -- to $350 -- for customers who end their cellphone contracts early.
