This Week in Tech

Hey guys,

I thought I’d try out something new today, so here it is. I’m going to name out a few interesting articles in tech today, and give brief summaries of them. Please comment if you want me to do more of these!

  1. More Competition for the iPhone as LG is hsowing off their new LG Xenon, a touch-screen phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. Having seen the video review, some things have been copied from Apple, and others, like their browser, just suck. Overall, the phone is pretty good, though.
  2. Companies are still green as despite these tough times they continue to invest in Green projects in the long-term.
  3. Microsoft and Google are fighting against eachother to make an ad deal with Twitter. Hopefully Twitter rejects this, because we don’t want ads on our Twitter:)
  4. EA will be losing a strong arm when Sims and Sim City creator Will Wright leaves EA. As if the 4-month Sims 3 delay didn’t make people mad enough!
  5. Intel is still at the top in CPU market share, though Qualcomm gained a 15%+ growth in 2007-2008! Intel’s ’07-’08 growth lowered by 0.5%.

That’s about it. As for TeenCast, we are working on the Twitter problems (it’s driving me nuts how the feed is almost always down).

Twitter is Here!

In preparation for MacWorld, we’re trying to get the TeenCast twitter feed displayed right on the main page! We plan to be posting and tweeting from the MacWorld show floor. If you notice any changes in the blog’s design; we’re probably testing Twitter out. Once we get the Twitter feed up and running on the blog, we’ll tell you, so that you will know where to look during MacWorld!


As you may know already, TeenCast has a Twitter feed. We plan to use Twitter to keep you updated about MacWorld. In preparation for MacWorld, we’re got the TeenCast twitter feed to display right on the main page! We plan to be blogging and tweeting from the MacWorld show floor. If you notice any changes in the blog’s design; we’re probably just tweaking Twitter’s display. We also have a Flickr photostream to show you what’s happening at MacWorld and we might put screenshots of applications on the photostream as well.

Enjoy Twitter and Flickr!
