29 Apr

The United States had anticipated the launch of Asus.  When the whole world was able to get their hands on the Eee Machine, US had to wait.  When it was finally made available, people from all over the country didn’t bat an eyelash.  In just a few hours, Asus Eee Machine Transformer was declared sold out.

Gone is the status of Asus Eee Machine Transformer in Amazon’s page as “in stock”.  The customers were excited with the Android 3.0 tablet which cost approximately $400 per unit.

The demand for the Transformer was so immense that aside from Amazon declaring the listing as out of stock, other outlets supplying the Transformer likewise declared out of stock. Among these suppliers include Target.

Asus also had stocks running out.  The “Where to Buy” page doesn’t make the transaction easy at all.

The low numbers of supplies or just the high demand, users seem to be attracted to the features of the Transformer.  With a display that comes in 10-inch size and a tablet OS rich in features, it’s definitely worth every cent spent.

No More Microsoft Zune

28 Mar

It’s official. Microsoft has decided to pull the plug on Zune Media.  No more new hardware and no more new releases or whatsoever. It’s the end of the line for this media player from Microsoft.  Instead, Microsoft decided to put their attention on Windows Phone 7 and integrate it with Zune functionality.

The end of Zune is really not much of a surprise.  It was released in 2006 and frankly, not many improvements were given to Zune except for few upgrades regarding its software.  However, the reason for the pull of the plug is not really clear.

Zune is Microsoft’s entry in the portable music player games started by Apple. Though it has a very promising future when it was launched, it failed to cope up with the demands of the users.  As mentioned earlier, not many improvements were given. At one point, it tried to match the features offered by its biggest competitor which is Apple’s iPod.  In terms of sound quality and storage, it tried to stare at iPod face to face.  Still, there were a lot of applications that were still lacking.  It stayed as it is.

Overall, it was a Zune became an important brand for Microsoft. It was a great five years to spend.
