For the past few years any one that had to visit a Microsoft website has seen, odds are, an advertisement for them to install Silverlight, Microsoft’s Flash competitor. You see, Microsoft has wanted a chunk of the “web app” pie, and for the longest time, that was Flash. If you wanted to do an App or a Movie or such that was easily done and put in to a web page, Flash was the Champ to use. But Microsoft wanted to change that, and this was actually what may be considered the Downfall of the .Net programming language toolkit…
So for years Linux users have had to press PrntScrn button, save the image, then open up an image editor and edit the image, be it crop, add lines, add test, etc… Or, you know, you could use one of several command line apps, that in the end results in editing the pic in a app…
But then Deepin Linux made a great Screencap tool.
Netflix will finally offer their streaming services to Canadians. According to this press release Netflix should offer it by fall.
Canadian Netflix members will be able to instantly watch a broad array of movies and TV episodes right on their TVs via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as watching on PCs and Macs.
In addition to representing its inaugural international market, Canada will also mark the first streaming-only service promoted by Netflix.
At the time of launch, the Netflix Canadian service will be available in English only, but the company said it expects to add French language capability over time.
Canadians interested in Netflix can go to www.netflix.ca and sign up to receive an email from the company when the service launches in Canada this fall.
Can’t wait to get this service!
According to a Digitimes report, Intel is planning to launch a new Atom CPU no earlier than October.
Dubbed Atom N450, the new processor will replace the N270 used in most netbooks today. Unlike the N270, the N450 has some built-in northbridge functions, and the entire platform will consist of only two chips, unlike the current platform which has three. The new 45nm CPU will be coupled with the Tiger Point chipset, designated NM10.
Obviously the new two-chip design will be less power hungry, and due to its compact size it will allow manufacturers to come up with thinner, lighter netbooks, and possible even some new form factors. However, we still don’t know the clocks and don’t have any performance details.
Digitimes claims Intel will issue a last order notice for the N270 in Q1 2010, and it will cease production sometime in 1H 2010. It is still a unclear what will happen to Silverthorne and Poulsbo, or should we say Z-series Atoms and the US15W chipset.
