Oxford Dictionary on Deathwatch

According to a recent post by MediaPost the Oxford dictionary maybe on it’s deathbed.

“In what ABC’s Nightline would call “A sign of the times,” the Oxford English Dictionary could be heading for extinction. Yes, as The Washington Post reports, the obvious culprit is the Web, which Oxford University Press now says has made the future of the printed dictionary “uncertain.” The digital version of the Oxford English Dictionary now gets 2 million hits a month from subscribers, who pay $295 a year for the service in the U.S., according to WaPo. By contrast, the current printed edition — a 20-volume, 750-pound ($1,165) set published in 1989 — has sold just 30,000 sets. “The print dictionary market is just disappearing. It is falling away by tens of percent a year,” Nigel Portwood, chief executive of Oxford University Press, told The Sunday Times in an interview.”

Google OLED Tablet

Google and Verizon are planning a Tablet with Google Chrome? The guys from Download Squad become some info from HTC that this tablet comes with Chrome OS and a Multitouch Display with 1280×720 Pixel. No Info about the display technology. Amoled, Super-Amoled or LCD-TFT. We think its LCD-TFt because Samsung Mobile Display with 98% OLED Display market share can not deliver enough Oled panels to Htc.
Another technical details are :2GB of RAM, at least 32GB of storage with the possibility of expansion, GPS, a webcam, and the usual wireless connectivity, including a 3G radio.

Download Squad are told by a reliable tipster that HTC is building a Tegra 2-based Chrome OS tablet for Google with a 1280 x 720 multitouch display, 2GB of RAM, at least 32GB of storage with the possibility of expansion, GPS, a webcam, and the usual wireless connectivity, including a 3G radio. Launch is pegged for Black Friday on November 26, and apparently the plan is to offer the device for extremely cheap or free on subsidy, which makes sense
