The Legendary Daredevil Evel Knievel dies…

December 1st, 2007 — Sports

Evel Knievel, dubbed as the “world’s greatest stuntman”, died November 30, 2007 at age 69. The motorcycle stunt superstar had been ailing in health for sometime. Evel Knievel is famous for his death-defying motorcycle stunts, horrific crashes, grievous injuries, and his Elvis-like red-white-and-blue leathers. His outrageous stunts include the famous jump (or famous landing) in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 31, 1967 in which he jumped over the fountains at Caesars Palace. Knievel crashed after coming up short caused by a sudden loss of power on the take off. He suffered multiple broken bones and a concussion that kept him in a coma for 29 days. Still, the jump was spectacular. After the crash and recovery, he was famous than ever. He went on again to perform his next death-defying leap and jumped the Snake River Canyon after the US government didn’t allow him to jump the Grand Canyon.

Palm Centro: A broadband smartphone at the price of a standard phone

September 28th, 2007 — Featured, Palm, Smartphones, Wireless & Mobile

THE SMARTPHONE market is now shifting to the mass market. IDC, a global market intelligence firm, estimates that U.S. smartphone shipments will grow from 13.8 million in 2007 to 74.4 million in 2011. That would be about 500% growth over a four-year period.

With this prediction in mind, Palm, Inc., a leader in mobile computing (they made the successful Palm Pilot organizers), is now taking their market share in the smartphone industry to a higher level by releasing cheaper smartphones. And this was confirmed when they introduce their new smartphone, the Palm Centro. Palm Centro brings the Palm ease of use trademark to traditional mobile phone users for only $99.99. (Centro will be exclusive through Sprint in the United States for 90 days.)

With a compact fresh design, Centro is the smallest and lightest Palm phone to date. Palm Centro gives you voice, text, IM, email and web. Nothing you didn’t know, actually. Except that it’s all in a phone that’s a lot smaller than you think. Like other smartphones, Centro has a touchscreen and a full keyboard, so you can easily say L8R. Carry names and numbers, shoot photos and video. Again, nothing you didn’t know. So what makes this Palm Centro apart from the rest?

For people thinking of stepping up to a smartphone, Centro would be a good choice since, aside from the stylish compact design, you can have it for an incredibly low price. And since Centro comes with the Palm OS, it offers all of the great organizer functionality that Palm is renowned for.
