Parallels 4.0 for Mac released on tuesday

www.parallels.com With this release my need to run a seperate windows laptop has come to an absolute end. Parallels allows me to run my last remaining XP licence in Leopard and use the 3 or 4 Windows products i cannot get replacements for, and I have to use, Access, Live writer and Neverwinter Nights 2 (It runs beautifully).    So while parallels is running NWN keeps dyeing post the movie.. Ian, Frank, sorry guys no D3D support as yet. Improvements include speed boosts, (havent tried these yet), An intelligent Hypervisor Load balancer and a virtualisation engine that consumes 15-30 percent less resources. (I have noticed previously too, running a virtual machine on osx is less stressfull than on my Mac)

Will you get an iPhone legally?

On the 22nd of August, Apple in conjunction with Telecom partners worldwide will be releasing the iPhone in 15 Nations worldwide.

When the iPhone was first launched, almost a year ago, it was something exciting, frankly something worth having, and it was a desirable piece of technology…

A 19 inch Monitor and Games a plenty

This weekend, I finally did it, I recreated my home-media-server machine into a Roaring Gaming Monster (Well little one anyway). Over the past 2-3 Months I had slowly added more and more to this machine.. so much so that it now has more than 1500 GB of Storage capacity, Granted almost 1 TB is taken up by media and assorted data. This Server is connected to all the 5 Computers in the house is constantly on, and serves my media collection to my tv as well. Sexy setup; but the problem was, my laptops, even though they are ludicrously overpowered when compared to my first pc (1990) or my second pc (2000); I wanted a larger screen to play Jade Empire, and Gears of War (havent got to Crysis yet)
