Motorola may spin off or sell phone unit

Struggling cell-phone maker Motorola Inc. said Thursday it is considering separating the Motorola-logo handset unit from its other businesses in an effort to snap a deep slump that has followed its meteoric success with the Razr.

Under pressure from unhappy investors for the past year, Motorola signaled a willingness to break itself up after more than a year of dismal results and declining market share.

The announcement after the stock market closed sent shares in the Schaumburg-based company up more than 10 percent.

PC Makers to Adopt Chips Used in MacBook Air

Processors specially developed by Intel for Apple’s new MacBook Air laptop will soon be used by other PC vendors in systems, possibly creating competition for what Apple calls the world’s lightest and thinnest notebook.

Two PC makers will use the miniaturized Intel Core 2 Duo processors used by Apple in MacBook Air, said a source familiar with Intel’s plans. Systems powered by the chips will be released soon, the source said.

Porn to spice up cell phones

Size matters in pornography, except when it comes to tiny mobile phone screens, the next frontier for erotica.

If the adult entertainment industry has its way, Americans will soon get a choice of free porn on cell phones — or at least some photographs of good-looking girls in bikinis.

Unlike in Europe, mobile porn has yet to take off in North America as carriers have been afraid of offending political and religious groups and parents concerned about children being exposed to adult content.

That may change this year as phone companies plan to loosen control on their networks to allow a wider variety of gadgets and services, while introducing new tools to shield minors. More advanced phones with better Web browsers like Apple Inc’s iPhone also offer higher quality pictures and video.

“It will be impossible to stop the adult business exploitation of mobile entertainment,” said Gregory Piccionelli, a lawyer specializing in adult entertainment at law firm Piccionelli & Sarno.

He predicted that U.S. consumers may soon be offered free porn on mobile phones alongside paid services like live video or “adult dates,” a term for prearranged sex with strangers.

Apple TV update coming soon!

 
Apple today announced that MacBook Air, the world’s thinnest notebook, is now
shipping. MacBook Air measures an unprecedented 0.16-inches at its thinnest
point, while its maximum height of 0.76-inches is less than the thinnest
point on competing notebooks. Apple also announced that the new Apple TV(R)
software update, which allows users to rent high definition movies directly
from their widescreen TVs, is not quite finished. Apple now plans to make
the free software download available to existing Apple TV customers in
another week or two.

    MacBook Air has a stunning 13.3-inch LED-backlit widescreen display, a
full-size and backlit keyboard, a built-in iSight(R) video camera for video
conferencing, and a spacious trackpad with multi-touch gesture support so
users can pinch, rotate and swipe. MacBook Air is powered by a 1.6 GHz or
1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4MB L2 cache, and includes as
standard features 2GB of memory, an 80GB 1.8-inch hard drive, and the
latest 802.11n Wi-Fi technology and Bluetooth 2.1.
