Facebook and MySpace fighting for attention

TECHNOLOGY - MySpace has updated their look and Facebook has announced plans to update their look too. Its a battle of design, aesthetics and functions.

MySpace for example is focusing on their ability to customize the page so users can feel more at home.

Not be outdone however Facebook decided to revamp their design to place more emphasis on photography of users. The overwhelming popularity of photographs — 100 million a day are posted on the site — persuaded Facebook to add more graphics.


BlackBerry PlayBook looks pretty awesome

Research in Motion last Friday gave a sneak peak of its upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. People got a chance to finally touch and use the device, which is half the size of an iPad, but has a lot more power and functions, like front and back cameras.

Attendees to the sneak preview of the PlayBook were wowed by the product on a number of levels. It can be used as a video camera, for video editing, is Flash capable (the iPad can't use Flash) and it is compatible with other devices (ie. HDTVs, digital projectors, SmartPhones and BlueTooth connectivity).

Due out in February 2011 for about $500, the BlackBerry PlayBook is a 7-inch tablet touchscreen and can run multiple applications at the same time and can be used side by side.
