Are there Any Chances for iPad Competitors

Does anyone stand a chance against the iPad?
The same that is happening in the world of smart phones is happening in the iPad world. Just as Apple has, the best iPhone and nobody can touch it, so it seems to be the case when looking at the competitors of the iPad. Samsung towards the end of 2010 released the Galaxy Tab and it did not fair to bad, but it still did not even come close to the iPad. HP publicly announced the release of their HP Touchpad, which will be launched in June 2011, but also made one big mistake. Their product will be launched after the debut of the competitions iPad 2, so if they stood any chance in getting a head start it surely is lost.
There are many other versions available later this year and we do have some information on some of them like the JooJoo from Fusion garage, which is currently the closest to shipping. It is also the most feature-barren of the iPad competitors and cost $500. It is an extremely simple tablet with a 12-inch screen and does not even have a SIM card slot for 3G.
Archos Tablet only has a 600 MHz processor and may be many peoples answer who does not want to pay $500 and upward. They will sell their tablet for only $179 and may have thought it will attract more interest when it is released in April, but we will have to wait and see.
Dell is also cooking up tablets of their own and the one they showed off is the Streak, but the size of it removes it from the iPads competition and relates more to the mobile Internet devices. Asus started the netbook craze and their 9-inch tablet, the Asus Eee is speculated as being able to run a Google mobile operating system.
Compal with their 7-inch Android 2.0 which runs with the Tegra 2 processor will be able to support video playback of 1080p and still maintain great battery life. According to Nvidia, they have several partners in the pipeline to design tablets with the Tegra 2 chip, so it can be expected to see more of this sort of tablet soon. Notion Ink also use the Tegra 2 chip and runs Android in their 10-inch tablet called Adam and use Pixel Qi screen technology that is great to use in direct sunlight.

Is it enough?
However, will all these features from some great companies be enough to remove the iPad from its throne? There is over 80 competitors and each try their best to come up with a new concept, whether it is size, hardware, or software to outshine the iPad. Not even lower prices and great applications can shift iPad from the throne, or so it seems currently and it is speculated that the iPad will definitely stay ahead of the pack through 2012 as well.

Gmail Introduces Delegation Feature: Let Other People Answer Your Emails

I use two Gmail accounts: one is my personal account and the other I share with my family (we use it to subscribe to groups like my children’s classroom mailing list). Checking these two different accounts used to mean I had to sign out and back in to Gmail all the time. Not anymore.

Yes, Gmail now supports full email delegation. By way of a new feature in settings, you can grant another Google account holder access to your email account. This allows another person to both send and receive emails on behalf of your account.

This feature has been available for some time for Google Apps accounts. But sometimes regular people have assistants too — or simply email addresses that they’d like multiple people to manage in a more coherent way. For example, when a message is sent from the account with access to yours, it appear as being from your address, but with include “sent by XXXX@gmail.com”. Nifty.

To grant access to another account, click the Settings link in the top right corner of Gmail. On the “Accounts” tab, you’ll see a new section where you can “Grant access to your account.”

The account you add will get a verification email with links to accept or deny access. Once the account accepts, a small down arrow will appear beside the email address at the top right corner of Gmail which can be used to toggle between accounts.

Each account will open in a different browser tab or window so you can view both accounts simultaneously, all while signed into your primary account. When you send a message from hikingfanfamily@gmail.com while signed in as hikingfan@gmail.com, it will appear as being sent by hikingfan@gmail.com on behalf of hikingfanfamily@gmail.com.

Signing out of any one of the accounts will sign you out of all the accounts you’re currently viewing, and, of course, you can revoke access at any time.

Reeder for Mac(Beta) – Awesome RSS reader is Out

Screen shot 2010-12-03 at 4.17.52 PM.png

Reeder is one of the famous iOS application, and for good reason: it makes Google Reader feel smooth and Mac-like. Now you can get a (really) early view at Reeder’s desktop version.

The developer of Reeder for Mac calls this release a “Draft 1,” and notes that some fairly core functions—search, feed management, download management—are missing, and that a lot more is likely missing, too. But Reeder’s core mission of running your feeds through a filter with good fonts, crisp alignment, and a generally iOS-like interface is being accomplished. The iPad-like “Send” button in the upper-right offers a whole lot of options for saving and sharing articles, and the layout is helpful for those who like to run through their feeds in groups.

It’s first Beta release so is not fully feature loaded. Authors points out few.

What’s still missing:

  • Feed management
  • Search
  • Downloads
  • Probably more…

But for a first Beta release it looks awesome

Reeder 1.0 Draft 1 is a free download for Mac systems only & can be downloaded from:
