Elonex ONE… finally dispatched

DoesWhat has been following the (troubled) progress of the Elonex ONE. It’s sub-notebook to rival the likes of the Asus Eee. The device was hailed as the first sub £100 laptop (sub $200 roughly), however in total with the addition of delivery the laptop costs £110. Originally we weren’t sure if Elonex was up to the job.

Cuil… back to Google then

Cuil, previously Cuill (before it went public), pronounced ‘cool’ launched (properly) on the 27th July. With millions in funding they’ve managed to create an incredible amount of hype for a search engine not worthy of such attention. Cuil is a new Google competitor that claims to have indexed 121,617,892,992 web pages that they say is […]

Elonex ONE… will dispatch soon

Almost a month ago we reported Google’s reluctance to comply with Californian law (Google’s battle of beauty versus law). The California Online Privacy Protection Act states that a commercial website that collects data about it’s users must, “conspicuously post its privacy policy on its Web site”. We stated, “So, it turns out that for five […]

Firefox… Guinness are thorough

It has been over a fortnight since the infamous Firefox Download Day, today we received an email from Mozilla stating that everything has been checked and the record for the most downloads in 24 hours has been officially broken/created. It seems however that the email was slightly delayed and actually it was official yesterday (02 […]

‘AdSense Referrals’ gets dumped

Today we received an email from Google stating that ‘AdSense Referrals’ is ‘retiring’ from Google’s AdSense service. Something that actually wasn’t completely unexpected. Our experience with it showed us that it was really fairly weak (especially compared to the standard you expect from Google services). It was a sort of ClickBank clone except not just […]
