2010: The year PC prices go up
The Register
John Oates explains why PC prices could go up this year.

“PC prices have fallen – or at least stayed the same – for many years now, but some analysts believe this year will see them become more expensive. The reason is increasing prices for components as a result of overly pessimistic manufacturers cutting back production during the downturn. The long lead time for building complex fabs for chips and memory components means the recovery could lead to a jump in prices.”

Is Google the best candidate to create a good, customer-focused cloud banking service portfolio?

Dana Gardner raises the question of if Google is the best candidate to create a “good, customer-focused cloud banking service portfolio.”

“If any of us can explore, learn, compare, shop, order, track, and share your experiences via Google – the actual monetary transactions scattered inside these processes should be a natural included component too. Right? Is Google the best candidate to create a good, customer-focused cloud banking service portfolio? I think they would provide just the catalyst for change we so desperately need. We can then expect Microsoft to enter the field three years later, perhaps for an added element of choice and change.”

Rachel King writes about Apple’s fourth generation iPhone device.

“Who doesn’t love a good rumour, especially when it might be true? We’ve been hearing talk about Apple releasing a new version of the iPhone this year, but we might be something real as early as April. But, while the iPhone v4 might find its way into the hands of a select, fortunate few this April, it will probably be released at the now-traditional iPhone release month: June..”
