Blogger's Diary

After being absent for some time, I'm back to blogging. Don't ask what I was doing in this time as the ready made answer will have artifacts in it and may not satisfy you. I sometime pretend to have a real life, so lets just leave it at that ;) Although not blogging, I wasn't sitting idle and kept a tab on the recent developments in the world of computing and communication. As any enthusiast would know- this is a very happening zone; every now and then boatload of new devices and technologies are coming out of the framework, triggering endless threads in the forums and starting new controversies! The seer number of such news and events can be overwhelming for most of the end-user community. Thankfully, not all of those are of any significant interest to the end-user. Here at TechnoProzium we try to focus our efforts on hardware and technologies that have a considerable impact on the mainstream and value oriented user. Speaking of which, there are some very interesting things we would like to talk about. First among those will be Intel's IvyBridge processors and the latest Z77 chipset based motherboards and then we'll take a look at AMD's upcoming Trinity desktop parts. Then there is the Kepler aftermath in GPU side of the things, specially the shiny new GTX 660-Ti! Meanwhile I made myself a new desktop build for office use which also should serve as a file server and if time permits I'll share my experience. We've some exciting time ahead of us, no doubt :)

Netbook market crumbles: Big OEMs are getting out

Last year, we asked the question! Earlier this year we were disappointed at what was going on! The clues were there and we anticipated bad things looking into the future. We told you 2012 wasn't going to be a good year for the Netbook segment, now it turns out to be the worst ever! In some very recent developments, it seems that ASUS, Acer and MSI are all set to pull out of the Netbook arena once and for all. According to news reports from DailyTech and Techreport, which seems to have originally generated from Digitimes, these manufacturers are about to resolve their existing inventory with no further plans to continue on future products!
