Internet Explorer, PS Home, Top 3 Touchscreen's of 2008

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

I just woke up because my girlfriend texted me and now we're on Skype. Oh yeah, i forgot to mention that yesterday in the library i downloaded Skype Version 4 Beta 3. It's pretty cool, cause now i can just have 1 window open and have my video and my contacts all there for me. It's pretty cool. If you use Skype, i would suggest you try it out. Here we go.

Internet Explorer. So, as i try to convince my girlfriend to fully make the move over to Firefox or Google Chrome, which will be hard to do, i try to find some bad information on Internet Explorer. This may or may not be all that convincing for her, but maybe it'll get some of you to change your damn browsers. Anyways, Internet Explorer has holes... all versions of Internet Explorer. Basically, this means that someone could easily hack you and get all your information if they exploit this hole. Hackers are, actually, now exploiting IE7's (Internet Explorer 7) hole [That's what she said]. This hole is also present in IE6, which some people still use and i actually don't know why. All the users of Internet Explorer are at risk, regardless of what Windows OS you are running. "Last week, Microsoft released eight security updates that patched 28 vulnerabilities, 23 of them pegged 'critical.' Both numbers broke previous records that stretched back more than five years." This means that Internet Explorer fails. First of all, it's slow and buggy. Second of all, there are holes! So, get off Internet Explorer and be safe while you browse the Internet, using either Mozilla Firefox or the [faster] Google Chrome, please and thank you.

Playstation Home time. So, the author of this article said that in the closed beta he thought that PS Home would be useless and 'forgettable.' But, after trying it out on 1.03 which is the open beta, he actually found it more fun. Simply because they updated how the 'square' looks and because more people are on it now compared to the closed beta. For, Ashlee and Nikki, you can go into the theater portion of Playstation Home and actually see a new Twilight trailer, but then after a bit, you get to see some probably lame-o music video. I wish i had the Playstation 3 for myself, so that i could make my own review about it, but, that might have to wait a bit.

Ooo, according to reghardware.co.uk, the HTC Touch HD (see above picture) is the number 1 phone of 2008. Runner-up's are the LG Renoir KC910 and, of course, the iPhone 3G. The HTC Touch HD's price on this site says that it is going for 535 Euros, which is actually cheaper than the $930 USD, that i gave it, when i talked about it a couple weeks ago. They say some positives are the large 3.8 inch screen and it's 5 megapixel camera. They also like the TouchFlo HD user interface and they also mention that it is a worthy alternative to the iPhone. Go HTC Touch HD.

Second on the list is the LG Renoir (see left side). The 8 megapixel phone on this touchscreen phone really gave it it's edge over other competition. Not to mention that it has a "widget-based touchscreen UI" and has "solid multimedia features." It goes unlocked for 370 Euros.

Let's not forget the iPhone (i think you already know what that looks like by now) here now. Some reason's why it's not number one are because of it's "incomplete Bluetooth functionality, no MMS support [and] the network ties." But, there are of course the positives which are "its super-smooth UI and excellent web browser." Personally, i love the accelerometer and how fast it reacts and the list of applications you can download for it. But, you know, HTC Touch HD prevails as the king.

That was my blog for now, and i'll blog again later for sure. I'm leaving for my cousin's basketball in a bit and i'll [definitely] get back to you after that.
