How To Enjoy A Brand New Macbook For $500

The answer is quite simple, buy an iPad 2 and get a keyboard accessory for it. With Apple’s new Keyboard Case for the iPad, you are not only getting a protective shell to house your new computer investment, but you can also use it as a keyboard and tablet stand.

Okay, so it’s obviously not going to be an i7 powered laptop, we get that. But if you are truly in love with iOS, this might be an affordable alternative to getting a macbook, at least until your funds grow a bit.

Microsoft Gives Green Light To Hack Your Windows Phone

Microsoft has traditionally not been too friendly with people messing around with its products but they have recently changed their position, at least when it comes to their mobile phones. Microsoft has given its users the “all okay” when it comes to loading Mango on Windows Mobile devices, but warned that doing so would void the warranty.

This is great news for people who still have Windows Mobile phones. Although Windows Mobile looks nice, it’s prone to freezing and glitching and causes its consumers a royal nightmare. Getting the green light to port directly to Mango may be the end of frustrations for many.

HP Considering Licensing Its webOS

Computer manufacturer Hewlett-Packard is currently speaking with various companies over its webOS mobile operating system. Sources claim that future Samsung tablets may sport the HP mobile OS. The move would give manufacturers such as Samsung a choice other than Windows or Android, giving consumers more options when purchasing a tablet.

It would be a win/win situation, in fact, if the deal went through. HP would be able to reach a larger user base through its webOS and tablet PC makers would be able to grab a larger portion of the market.

Apple Prevents Users From Downgrading iOS

Apple will no longer let users roll their iPhone operating systems (iOS) back to previous versions to prevent them from jailbreaking the smartphone. Apple plans on implementing the new security feature as soon as iOS 5 is launched.

SanDisk Spills The Beans On HP TouchPad

It seems like SanDisk may have stepped on HP’s toes just a bit at the ongoing Computex 2011 show. Thanks to SanDisk we are able to blog about the upcoming HP TouchPad. How does this differ from the previous TouchPad? This one has a zipper operating system, using WebOS. Consumers can expect to find this device at Walmart in June and OfficeMax in July.

The 16GB version of the tablet will start at $499 with the 32GB at $599 and the 64GB at $699. As shown in the video, the tablet is great at multi-tasking, allowing users to have a multitude of applications open, simultaneously, with the ability to seamlessly swipe to your desired app.

Microsoft Planning To Acquire Nokia For 19 Billion?

Reports have begun to spring up, suggesting that Microsoft might be getting ready to swallow Nokia for $19 billion. While Nokia has three main business groups: Mobile Phones, Smart Devices, and Markets. Mobile Phones would be the only one that would be taken over for the 19 billion.

This is an interesting bit of news when you consider that Nokia announced that a number of their phones will support Windows Phone 7, coupled with the fact of the mobile operating system, Symbian, being undesired for a large majority of mobile users.
