Google Announces Buzz; or Will Social Networking Blend?

Google Announces Buzz; or Will Social Networking Blend?

Our sibling site Android Central let us know that Google has shoved every social media form you can imagine, from Facebook to Twitter to Foursquare, to -- dunno, Friendserjaiku? -- into something called Buzz.

After Google Wave, which came off as WikiChat to us, we're not sure about all this Google-mash, but Phil gives us a pretty good rundown:

For starters, go to buzz.google.com, and you'll be taken to a Web app that lets you see and create Buzz messages. You can see messages from people you "follow" or interact with often, or you can see messages from people nearby.

Personally, I needed one more platform to push my Twitter feed to anyway... What do you think? Want? Will use? Yeahbuwhy?

Videos after the break!

Notion Ink Adam -- Don't Call it an "iPad Killer"!

Notion Ink's Atom is one of the next generation "tablet" style devices that will no doubt be compared head-to-head with Apple's iPad. First, a note to traditional media -- if we never read the phrase "iPad killer" it'll be too soon. We clear?

Second and that said, SlashGear shows off some renders and it looks like the Adam brings some interesting ideas with it.

Aperture 3.

Yeah, Aperture 3. Sorry iPad fans and MacBook hopefuls, but Apple has already put up a PR and so far that's it.

We'll updated, of course, if there's anything else.

It is a Tuesday after all, and Macworld...

Apple iPad A4 Chip Designed by PA Semi Team... or Not?

Venture Beat claims a "very trusted" source has informed them that Apple's PA Semi team might not have been behind the new iPad's Apple A4 chipset:

PA Semi didn’t do the A4. It was the existing VLSI team. Apple has made custom chips for years like the Northbridges for G4 and G5.
