REDMOND, Wash. — Microsoft is reportedly developing a Windows operating system that would run on ARM’s chip architecture instead of the Intel chips Microsoft products currently run on.
According to a Bloomberg report, the operating system would target smartphones and tablets and mark a dramatic shift for Microsoft because of the company’s long term relationship with Intel.
A low-power OS based on ARM's blueprint would allow more companies to run Windows on their hardware, as ARM powers a majority of tablets and mobile devices.
Intel's chips, on the other hand, require a lot more power, so aren't as suited for battery-powered devices.
Bloomberg said that Microsoft's anticipated move is a response to the dominance of Apple's iPad in the tablet market.
But Intel could have tablet plans of its own. Earlier this month, reports suggested the company is planning its own tablet division, though nothing has been officially announced.
This is going to be fun to watch. And all this time I figured Apple would dominate since they were the first to have a stable tablet touch screen technology. Microsoft entering the fray means all bets are off.
Lady Tee. The Ivory Queen of Soul. For over 30 years Teena Marie has defied musical labels and boundaries, crossing over to R&B like few other blue-eyed soul artists. In addition to old-school jams such as “I Need Your Loving,” “Square Biz,” and “Portuguese Love,” she collaborated with mentor Rick James to create classics such as “I'm A Sucker for Your Love” and “Fire and Desire.”
When I was a kid back in the 70s we all heard the voice and you couldn't tell us that it wasn't a black woman singing. So you could imagine the surprise when we saw her for the first time perform on Soul Train. With her talent and voice, Teena could have done anything in music but she crossed over to the black community and for that she had and will always have a special place in our hearts.
WASHINGTON - People who play basketball with Barack Obama say he's more dogged than flashy, more determined than skillful, more adaptable than unique. He'll trash talk on a dribble-drive with Reggie Love, but in the old days he was a studious, unselfish passer with classroom colleagues at Harvard Law.
And often, they say, he ended up with more points than you thought he'd have. No one noticed until it was over.
As in basketball, so it is now: his life on the court is a parallel to the first two years of his up-and-down-and-now-sort-of-up-again presidency.
To tell you the truth, I missed the second half mainly because I'm superstitious. I missed the last game and the Eagles won then yesterday I watched the first half and they got their asses handed to them. I started to get that feeling that my watching was jinxing them so I turned the channel and then ran out to do some errands. When I checked the score online it said Giants 31 Eagles 24, my eyebrow raised. Then I checked again a couple of minutes later and the score was tied 31 all. I held my breath.
Then I heard a neighbor shouting "UNBELIEVABLE!!" so I turned the channel to the game and it was over. The greatest comeback in Eagles history and I like to think my not watching the second half and jinxing the team helped in some small way..
You're welcome Eagles fans...so without further ado..lets watch the highlights of the Miracle At The Meadowlands - the Next Generation..
At several fundraising events last spring, President Obama found himself the target of hecklers yelling over “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
Overturning the military’s policy on gays openly serving was an early campaign promise of candidate Obama. And with his left flank pushing for action, Obama made it part of January’s State of the Union address.
But progress was slow. And as even Obama called for Congress to repeal the law, activists complained Washington wasn’t moving fast enough.

LONDON — A small army of activist hackers orchestrated a broad campaign of cyber-attacks on Wednesday in support of the beleaguered antisecrecy organization WikiLeaks, which has drawn governmental criticism from around the globe for its release of classified American documents and whose founder, Julian Assange, is being held in Britain on accusations of sex offenses.
Run Sarah Run...We need a good hard laugh for the 2012 Elections.
In an obvious effort to drum up more visibility for her book, Sarah Palin has chosen to speak out against two women whose bra straps she couldn't carry with her husband's help. Barbara Bush and Michelle Obama.
During an interview with Larry King, Barbara Bush gave her impression of Palin, "I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful, and I think she's very happy in Alaska," Bush said, before adding, "and I hope she'll stay there."
