The Mac maker was helped by the reports that is slower in improving their products in the last platform. The report said Apple is using Intel chipset Calpella, for most of its current models, allowing you to “completely” to avoid the impact. “The sources said that because Apple products have high average selling prices Even if the company is slow in improving their products in the last platform, you will not see a significant impact on prices or gross margins, “said the report.”However, to Hewlett-Packard (HP) Acer and Dell, who rely heavily on the economic dimension, the new platform will help raise its ASP and therefore, these manufacturers will try to launch laptops with new platforms as soon as possible. “
The report follows an exclusive scoop that Apple Insider published on Tuesday, said the company Pros new MacBook is in production and on track for release in early March. Company anticipates that the reports are an overview of the new models come out in two weeks.
Intel, was released earlier this month that an error was discovered in a series of six sets of chipsets, called Cougar Point, which makes the performance of Serial ATA ports numbered 2 to 5, tend to degrade over time in extreme conditions. The issue applies to mobile and desktop processors, and does not affect SATA ports 0 and 1.Apenas a week after the mistake was revealed, Intel announced it had resumed shipping the chipsets for system configurations PC power. The company also said that the new version, with its support chip, will begin shipping the systems that were based on SATA ports 2 to 5 to mid-February. In addition, the company confirmed it will meet to begin shipping dual-core chipsets on 20 February.
The International Centre for Advanced Technology (CITA) of Ruipérez Sánchez Germain Foundation, based in Peñaranda de Bracamonte (Salamanca), is involved in a project called Smart Research on interactive whiteboard (experts and known as IDPs) in classrooms , which runs until 2010 and which also involved 25 schools in Spain and Portugal. Leading this initiative is Pere Marqués Graells, professor of Educational Technology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Director of Teaching and Research Group Multimedia, and one of Spain’s leading experts in digital whiteboard.
“The PDI is an instrument that projected onto a white board all the information a computer can be connected to the internet, where everything is, so that creates the opportunities to share information and learn,” he says. In his view, the use of whiteboards requires little technical training, since “what is projected on a screen,” but also “with a pointer become touch screens and pen mode, which is known as ink digital, we can write up to include notes, for example, a picture of a piece of architecture. “
Despite this apparent simplicity, the CITA project and 25 schools aims to assess the implementation of this educational tool in the 25 centers that provide almost all IDPs in their classrooms. The idea is gradually to train teachers, implement new methodologies, overcome the problems which arise and achieve after two years that all teachers are excited and master the tool, “says Marquis.
“In my group we have over five years doing research. Teachers like this technology because it is easy and convenient, and believes that students are more motivated, “he says. Thanks to her, “are those students who project to the class work they have done and these views and participate more.”
However, this favorable response does not seem to be reflected in academic performance. “90% of teachers believe their students learn more, but then most do not get better grades. Given this disparity of data, the debate is what kind of activities being evaluated, “said the specialist, pointing to the possibility of change to change the criteria and the ways in examining knowledge.
So great is the revolution of new technologies? “Speaking of new technologies in general is dangerous because working with the PDI is very different than any other type of activity at the computer, which is a powerful tool.” In any case, offer “the ability to copy, paste, compile information of the moment” and, according to studies on information processing, thus further stimulates the right hemisphere, because it works more the image, and has different impact on learning, “he explains. So, your group will present new research next year with 20 centers, which include not only IDPs but also computer on the desk, “to see what can be done with both.”
In any case, “technology always leads to changes in the way of working. The board ended the lecture, the book released to the student of the transience of the word, and each tool can introduce new activities to facilitate learning. Before the digital whiteboard, blackboard and the book and have allowed the student to go at their own pace and not at the pace of the speaker, “says the expert.
Currently, there are two types of digital whiteboard, the interactive and what is not.Between 5 and 10% of classrooms have one, a figure that is “under the United Kingdom and ahead of Italy,” said the biologist, who believes that Spain is still at a level of the challenges intermedio.Uno is creating content for this new technology. “There are publishers who are making efforts, we must move forward in this line, create platforms for content and search of resources to facilitate the work of the teacher”

A real plus for pros on the go who can have access to vital information stored in the software business. Not surprising since it runs nearly 60,000 phones with Android day!
Windows Mobile is also interesting software features, tight integration with office software and some business software developed by Microsoft. But the variation of Windows Mobile is still lagging behind and offers fewer services than its competitors. In addition, the Redmond giant remains handicapped by extreme vulnerability to viruses and malware even if it caused a sensation in Barcelona with its Windows 7 Phone Series.
Note that with Nokia and Samsung Ovistore its platform and platform Bada could make a nice breakthrough this year.

The Mobile World Congress 2010 has just closed its doors in Barcelona. The World Mobile Congress, this is THE event not to be missed for mobile phone manufacturers who are new in the coming year!
