DolFin Releases a New Gaming Notebook!

As most of you know already, I am the owner and CEO of DolFin MicroDevices, a small computer company in Hastings Nebraska. I won’t use this blog to plug my brand and I will do my absolute best to keep my investment in DolFin from reducing the quality of my reviews. However, I do want to post the fact that we’ve released a new desktop replacement notebook. To avoid being accused of favoritism I will only post the raw data on this page. Just the specs pictures and other basic information and I will let you guys decide for yourselves weather it is good or not.

Tech News Update for 9/7/11

Motorola Droid Bionic!

The Droid Bionic is finally out after eight months of delays. The starting price is $300 with two-year contract and I haven’t got my hands on it yet, but I’m told by the massive media on the Internet that it is a very good phone. I’m going to refrain from passing judgment on it until I can actually see the phone, but if you would like to read some reviews I have found a good news article whose link is right here.

AT&T Sucks!
AT&T still plans to merge with T-Mobile however the Department of Justice is suing to block the merger and the hearing is set for September 21. AT&T keeps saying that there are quote enormous benefits on quote of this merger, I would like to see what those benefits are.  In my view there seem to be no benefits whatsoever for AT&T to merge with anyone. Click here to read the article.

nVidia Sells Lots of Graphics Cards.
Nvidia’s sales are higher than expected and has raised its fiscal outlook for the quarter, which is good news for anyone who’s interested in any video or anyone who just loves Nvidia as I do I think they make some of the best graphics processors.

MORE PORN!
Here’s something that our most of our readers should be very interested in. The domain name service registry has begun has begun limited registration 4.XXX domain names for pornographers. I’m not sure why this was necessary to do. Don’t the.com domain names work perfectly fine for pornography?

Amazon looks weird.
Amazon.com the worlds most popular shopping website has launched a look. The redesigned version of this website is a bit more minimalist than the old one. I can’t find the date on which they plan to begin using this new layout but there is a picture of the new layout in the PCWorld.com article that is linked to below this blurb. It does seem that Amazon.com still has the old layout right now.

AMD get 12-core chips out soon.
AMD or Advanced Micro Devices is poised to released its new generation of quote bulldozer unquote processors and only shipping in major OEM vendor configurations. The list price on the 12 core 1.8 GHz off to wrong is only $873. For me I think 873 is rather high price for an AMD CPU, however, it’s not high price for 12 core processor. I personally use on the Intel processors in my own computers, because I find that they last longer and have more potential for overclocking if you buy the unlocked version of the Intel core I seven processor’s. I do take note that the 12 core 1.8 GHz operon should perform better than the current maximum on Intel being eight cores, but AMD does not support hyperthreading.
That is pretty much all that was in the news today that I really cared about. So I hope you enjoyed it and please feel free to let me know what you think in the comments and if you would like to e-mail me at DEO LF I NMD@Gmail.com, you can tell me what you think should be in tomorrow’s post. You can also tell me what you think should have been in today’s post and I left out.
