NVIDIA Could Dump VIA for Intel Atom

Relations between NVIDIA and Intel have not been at their best of late, with each trying to take every opportunity to take pot-shots at each other. There is still uncertainty about NVIDIA getting the technology assistance to devise a motherboard chipset for Intel’s next generation desktop processors.

However, the Ultra Low-Cost PC (ULPC) market has been an overnight success for several companies, be the likes of ASUS and their dozens and dozens of laptops and upcoming desktops for the ULPC market or others like MSI and ECS trying to bring ULPC to the desktop with their motherboard solutions.

Some New iPod Nanos Ship With Tilted Display

Apple's new iPod Nano made some waves when it was presented. It now looks just like the classic iPod and features the same capabilities - most importantly video playback. Turns out that a large number of early adopters are turning on their brand new toy, just to notice the screen not being straight within the casing. While this tilt may not be a lot, it can easily be seen on the two inch screen. Apple is replacing these iPod Nanos, but even the replacement has the same defect at times. So if you just bought your new toy, expect to give it up for 7 to 10 business days, while Apple relaces your unit. Even the new 8GB iPod Nano of yours truly has the same defect - this is certainly not impressive Apple.Source: Engadget
