Are you a eFamily?

As technology is advancing our lives getting digitized and the emotions are coming along with it as well. Our life is stored in our personal computers in the form of music, videos, pictures & documents etc, of course no one can afford to lost them. On the other hand we all always worry about data synchronization among all our laptops, desktops and PDAs etc and of course the availability of all the data whenever and wherever you need it.

How it is, if one box can solve all of your digital problems and gives you easy and peaceful life? Well that’s all Microsoft is saying about the new addition in the family of their servers i.e. Microsoft Home Server, sounds interesting & exciting? But we'll see, will it reduce your burden or increase it?

Centrino again? No there's Duo with it!

I was pretty confused after reading top headings of CNET that Intel has launched a revolutionary platform for mobile computing called Centrino Duo because the way they are mingling the product names and updating their products so quickly. Anyway thats correct as they have released a new platform which consists of bunch of components like processors (up to 2.4GHz), integrated graphics of large size, faster wireless N-Draft, longer battery life and faster performance with 800Mhz Bus which was previously called Santa Rosa. As rightly said by CNET its not a break through advancement in Intel platform but what you can do? of course nothing, its same like Vista by Microsoft not something revolutionary but still they've managed to sold 40 millions copies in the first 100 days. would you believe?
