Rumor: New Mac-book Air !

Some rumors from Taiwan, the new MacBook Air will have 11.6' screen version. The new version of MacBook Air will be available at the end of 2010.

In my opinion, 11.6' version of MacBook Air is not good choice. I have a iPad and MacBook Air. If I want to do something more than web surface, I will use my MacBook Air. The advantage of MBA is light weight and wide enough. But the 11'6 screen weaken its advantage although it would be lighter. Why not I use my iPad ?

Hopefully, Apple will not use Atom as the new CPU ..........

I hope the new MBA will be more powerful in CPU, more RAM and come will SSD harddisk then I will upgrade my old MBA...... Otherwise, I will use my iPad more......

A Perfect Pen for iPad!

Do you want to bring your iPad as a writing pad in a meeting ?
Do you think writing on your iPad with your finger is not that good ?
Are you search for a Pen to use on your iPad ??

Here is a good product that I suggest !!!
iStroke L (there is another one called iStroke M which is shorter) from Ozaki.

I have tried some stylus for my iPad and this works the best. I use the iStoke L with the iPad apps Penultimate and Sketchbook Pro.
I found you can write smoothly with my iStroke without any intermitting.  Some styles I used before got a problem that sometimes the iPad cannot recognize your writing or sometimes the writing was intermitting.

And now I am happy with my iStroke and it is really worth to recommend you !!
It cost only about $30 US (I bought in HK and it only costed me HK$199!!)

My New E-reader ----- Sony PRS600BC

I used the reader for a few days. It is quite good although the response/page turning is not smooth as I expect. But the overall comment is not bad.

However, there are some points that I need to point out.

  1. I am using the Mac as you know ;p, and the library program is suck! It kept quitting when I tried to connect the reader with the program. The situation improved after fell back to 32 kernel. However, the program quitted recently again !!! I don't know how to fix it. It really upset me !!
  2. It is quite difficult for me to go a particular page. You may not have this problem when you reading a novel or fiction but if you use it to read the book of tools or something like referencing books. You will have headache.
  3. The resizing of the text in the pdf ebook is not so good as you will find the paragraph and the graph will be in a irrational position if you try to zoom in.
