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).
