STEVE JOBS SUBMITS AN ABSENTEE EXCUSE...
THE CES OF 1987...
PLUS A SITE FOR LONGER TWITTER POSTS.
IT'S TIME TO GET ALL SYNCHED UP.

HEY THERE WHAT IS GOING ON I'M RICH DEMURO AND THIS IS SYNCHED UP...
THE TECH SHOW THAT'S MORE MAGICAL THAN A STEAMY IPHONE APP!
LET'S GET YOU STARTED WITH YOUR MUST CLICK MOMENT.

IT'S INSIDE THE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW OF 1987!
THE FOUR PART SERIES TAKES YOU TO CHICAGO FOR THE SUMMER CES.
PART ONE FEATURES MOSTLY SONY PRODUCTS - INCLUDING BETA VCR'S, BULKY CAMCORDERS AND PORTABLE TVS THAT COULD CRUSH AN IPOD.

ONE THING HASN'T CHANGED - FORMAT WARS...
PANASONIC ALSO ON THE VIDEO SHOWING OFF IT'S S-VHS MACHINES.

WITH MORE SPECULATION OVER HIS HEALTH THAN THE LATEST MAC MINI MODEL - STEVE JOBS DECIDED TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT.

IN AN OPEN LETTER, THE CEO EXPLAINS HIS ABSENCE AT THIS YEAR'S MACWORLD.
IT'S HIS HEALTH.
JOBS SAYS HE'S BEEN LOSING WEIGHT FAST AND NOW KNOWS WHY - A HORMONE IMBALANCE.
IT'S APPARENTLY ROBBING HIS BODY OF PROTEINS IT NEEDS TO STAY HEALTHY.

APPLE ANNOUNCED IN DECEMBER 2009 WOULD BE THE COMPANY'S LAST YEAR AT MACWORLD.

YOU KNOW WHAT THAT SOUND MEANS - TIME FOR A QUICK QUIZ!

BLU-RAY WON THE BATTLE FOR HIGH DEF DOMINANCE AT LAST YEAR'S CES...
SO HOW MANY TITLES ARE AVAILABLE ON BLU-RAY DISC?
IS IT -

651

887

1092

1544

IF YOU ANSWERED 1092 - THAT'S RIGHT...
ACCORDING TO THE NEW YORK TIMES - THE FORMAT'S FUTURE IS STILL A BIT UNCLEAR BECAUSE DIGITAL DOWNLOADS AND STREAMS ARE QUICKLY GAINING MOMENTUM.

ONE FORMAT STILL RULES - AT LEAST WHEN IT COMES TO CELL PHONES.
LCD'S ARE KING - BUT COMPETING DISPLAYS ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT'S PLACE.

ABI RESEARCH TAKING A LOOK AT THE PROSPECTS OF NEW DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES.
IT SAYS LCD DOMINATES BECAUSE IT'S CHEAP AND EFFECTIVE...
BUT COULD BE BETTER ON POWER AND IN BRIGHT LIGHT.
AS FOR A REPLACEMENT - ABI GIVES THE BEST CHANCES TO O-LED'S BECAUSE THEY'RE BEING DEVELOPED FOR USE IN T-V SCREENS.
MEANWHILE QUALCOMM'S MIRASOL DISPLAYS ARE FINDING A HOME ON OUTSIDE SECONDARY SCREENS YOU FIND ON FLIP PHONES.
E-INK LIKE YOU FIND IN THE KINDLE IS CURRENTLY HANDICAPPED BY IT'S LACK OF COLOR SUPPORT AND LOW REFRESH RATE.

FINALLY - THE SITE.
WHEN YOU FIND YOU CAN'T KEEP YOUR TWEETS TO 140 CHARACTERS OR LESS...
IT'S TIME TO GET A BLOG - OR JUST USE TWITLONGER.

THE SITE LETS YOU WRITE LONGER POSTS AND PUSH THEM THROUGH YOUR TWITTER FEED WITH A LINK.
THE SITE SAYS IT'S NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR LONG-WINDED BLOGGING TOOLS BUT LETS YOU GO MORE IN-DEPTH ON A POST IF NEEDED.

THE SITE PROMISES IT WON'T DO ANYTHING SILLY WITH YOUR TWITTER USERNAME AND PASSWORD.

I'M RICH DEMURO - DON'T SAY I DIDN'T TELL YOU SO.
