New Flip cams to launch in early April?
Engadget
Joanna Stern writes that according to rumours, Cisco may launch a new Flip handheld camcorder next month.

“The details are slim to none on this one, but we’re all about a good pocket cam rumor. According to the usually-reliable Business Insider Cisco will launch a new set of Flip camcorders around the NAB show which runs from April 12-15, but we don’t have any specs yet. Come on Cisco, now you’ve got us guessing not only about the future of the Internet, but also if your newest Flip will support 1080p.”

AMD to finally take on netbook space with new Fusion chip… next year
Engadget

Nilay Patel writes about AMD’s upcoming Fusion CPU/GPU hybrid chip, which is codenamed “Ontario.”

“AMD’s John Taylor (said) that the chipmaker will be releasing a netbook-class Fusion CPU / GPU hybrid codenamed ‘Ontario’ with integrated DX11 graphics sometime next year. If Ontario sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve seen it leaked in the past — it’s a part of the ‘Brazos’ platform built around the low-power Bobcat core. Of course, AMD has been promising Fusion chips of all stripes for years now without a single shipping part, so saying that a Fusion chip will get it into the netbook game in 2011 is mildly amusing — while AMD’s definitely turned things around, it’s still incredibly late to the low-end party, and Intel’s solidly beaten it to the hybrid CPU / GPU punch with the Core 2010 and Pine Trail Atom chips”
