I do not always agree with the idea of ??some new gadgets, and this was another case where this happened. The fact that the éque Brando has released a mini Bluetooth keyboard, his creation was basically on top of portability and not usability. It measures 140 x 70 x 12 mm, has a reach of 15m and uses the standard Bluetooth 2.0, you can connect it to a smarthphone, laptop or even a PS3. Yes, it is interesting, but you think using a keyboard of this size, like the photo. He is not big enough to give comfort to use it, nor small enough so that it can be loaded easily into a pocket. He has 83 keys, with virtually all functions of a desktop keyboard, it uses AAA batteries, it is available in the U.S. for $ 39, I have no idea if it will be produced in Brazil. But nor do I care, I would not buy it.

Some years ago, Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO says Linux is synonymous with communism … And it seems he was not wrong. Already in 2005 Cuba began to implement the penguin on their computers from home computers to companies, to finally get rid of the operating system American independence and to achieve this. The fact is, students and professors from the University of Science and Computing Havana presented this year at the international conference on computing the Nova Linux distro made especially for the Cubans, who mixes a bit of Windows and Macintosh (¬ ¬) but it can also run on older machines such as a Pentium II. This solves a huge problem as system security, since the reality of the Cubans is not big news because of the embargo imported from the rest of the world. Just like their cars, computers are not there for the last line, which required using older operating systems that do not even have more security updates. According to Hector Rodriguez, College of Free Software from UCI, 20% of computers already use Linux in Cuba. It is now expected that in a maximum 5 years 50% of Cubans are already using Linux as its primary operating system. El movimiento del software libre es más cercano a la del pueblo Cuban ideology on all por la independencia y sovereignty. Source: Cuba launches own Linux variant to counter U.S. (Yahoo)

Notebook achieves incredible results in many games, which is unusual for any notebook. Of course, all this is due to the GeForce. Among its other specs, it features an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.93 GHz, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and can opt for a 500GB hard drive or a 64GB SSD. Its 15.4-inch screen features and is illuminated with LEDs. It is also hoped a Blu-ray, of course, for new games to come. About the price, I’m still not sure, but it will not be cheap, for sure.
