    Random thoughts.... [Tech Edition]

    New toys thread basically became a random thoughs thread, so it won't hurt start this I think.

    Anyway, can anybody chime in on whether I should buy the Unibody Macbook or the updated plastic body one? They're both about the same price atm, and my only main concern is getting drivers, etc, to run Windows 7 when it is released.

    Well we already have http://forums.finalgear.com/entertai...edition-35257/

    But it does kind of make sense to split it into separate entertainment and technology...

    but then these thoughts are becoming less and less random as we have to fit them to more and more categories

    If they are at the same price, go for the Unibody, the build quality is just much better on the Unibody (I had plastic one and now have an 1st gen Unibody).

    Also, as I said, Windows 7 runs just fine in 64 bits mode

    Son of a.. For some weird reason, all other browsers work on my PC but not FF. This occurred just a moment ago. I started up a crap laptop, it connected to the Zyxel's WLAN and now the PC's FF isn't connecting to anything.

    This sucks. Big time.

    If the rumors are all true then the new iPod touches will have cameras... and the best part is, my dad is going to be buying me a new iPod touch to replace the one I had stolen last month.

    I'm sure some years ago there were people who said the same things about GSM, it's just a question of infrastructure.

    No joy.

    iPod nanos now have cameras though...

    (anyone seen what resolution cameras? I'm assuming it's the same as the iPhone 3GS...)

    Why does everybody want to stick a camera into every single gadget on the market? I know it's being done consistently for the last several years, but I still don't get it. I used the camera on my Touch what, maybe 10 times in the 1.5 years that I have the phone, and at least 5 of those would have been faces of people to go nicely on the Contacts screen.
