No? Curses! OK, then. While I slave away, you can work out what I’ve had published this week.
This isn’t everything I’ve done, mind you; there’s quite a bit of behind the scenes stuff that won’t see light of day for some time. That mirrors me in one respect, as I’m working a stupid number of hours right now…
Anyway, on with the show…
At the Australian Financial Review, Tuesday’s column was all about big beefy blokes stretching Ultrabooks:
Ultrabook finds its niche, at a stretch: “Most Ultrabooks are pretty bland creatures when you look at them objectively. The constraints of working to Intel’s specific formula make for some very repetitive designs.”
While in today’s AFR, I’ve got a piece on Buffalo’s MiniStation Thunderbolt:
Thunder but no lightning: “The MiniStation’s internal drive spins at only 5400rpm, the practical equivalent of having a Ferrari body and engineering corps building your product, and then deciding to throw a rusty 1972 Datsun engine in there.”
At Hydrapinion this week, I was counting phones:
Australia, what are you doing with all those mobiles? “The sums aren’t hard to do…”
At ABC Technology+Games, a slightly delayed (but for the very best of reasons) column detailing Apple’s July ran:
Apple in review: Lion friendly but maybe not green: “Sometimes you win, even when you lose…”
In the September issue of Australian Personal Computer, I’ve got an indepth test of Optus’ 4G data speeds, as well as reviews of Sony’ s Xperia P, Nokia’s Lumia 900, Sony’s NSZ-GS7 Internet Player with Google TV, DiRT Showdown and Lego Batman 2. Look really hard (which is to say, not very hard at all) and you may also spot a certain well-known bearded Mac writer in there as well.
