They can also get up to $300 off the actual computer and up to $80 off AppleCare. The rumors have been circling around for months now, and they were 100% true, congrats college students, you now have Apple’s blessing. To see the offer on the Apple website click here.

Microsoft announcing “TouchWall”, just another piece of hardware for Google Maps

In Technology on May 15, 2008 at 9:14 pm

Microsoft has announced Touch Wall, Engadget reports, a touchable electronic device mounted on a wall. It will be a great piece of hardware for web applications like Google Maps. It looks like it’s going to be used for the public and not private. It looks pretty neat, but is it worth the money? I say no, it’s a big piece of flash that costs too much for too little. Microsoft isn’t making the right choices so far. Vista is a failure, they’re trying to copy Apple with their ‘simplicity’ with the new Office Suite, the Zune, and this new TouchWall that they just announced, and quite frankly, it’s not doing too well. Well that’s my take on it, for now goodbye.
