Here (Belgrade, Serbia) we have a system that works for years: you can buy the ticket, more or less exactly as described, or you can pay for the parking with the mobile phone - just send the SMS with the licence plate number, and you're good.

Do not forget that Google's own applications run native, that means your applications is penalized by using inferior interface.

Which Google's application run native? All major applications on Android (Messaging, Dialer, Contacts, Music, etc) are Java applications, and you can get their source code (I'm trying to do some Android programming when I have time, and I learned a lot from Google's applications).

Yeah, but it can also drive Apple's 30" display at its full 2560x1600. Can the T500 do that?

Dude, I'm talking about freaking NOTEBOOK. You know, the thing that's always with me and the thing I'm expecting to have decent screen resolution and good DPI. Especially when it costs over $2K.

Don't get me wrong - I don't have that big Apple monitor but geek in me wants that ability. I also want a simple way to connect with Space Shuttle and probably with LHC, but first and foremost - we're talking about overpriced notebook that doesn't even have an option to upgrade very mediocre screen resolution.

Feed Intel gets official on Centrino Pro, adds vPro (engadget.com)

Filed under: Laptops

Things are shaping up nicely for prospective laptop buyers holding out for Santa Rosa systems before they make the plunge. Intel just confirmed that the platform will be making its way into laptops in the second quarter of this year, and clarified that Centrino Pro is only part of the action, not the whole dealio. Intel also has come forward with a welcome feature addition for enterprise types: vPro, which Intel unleashed on the desktop side last year, will be included in Centrino Pro, allowing for remote management and upgrades of systems by IT folks, and improved virtualization. Of course, it'll also involve signing up for a smorgasbord of Intel-only parts, such as the 802.11n MIMO WiFi, but that's just the way Intel rolls.
