Intel debuts the World's First TC (Tiny Computer) dubbed OCS1 at IDF2010
Intel unveiled at the IDF 2010 a new device that they call TC or TinyComputer. The OCS1 has been developed in collaboration between Ocosmos, Intel, and AT&T. It is, by far, the world's bestmobile device that enables PC-based games says Intel. So what is the OCS1? A Sony PSP type device?
First, it is equipped with OMOS Interface, an integrated controller developed by Ocosmos, where a few buttons can serve functions of a keyboard and a mouse, on top of the touch screen interface and QWERTY keyboard. Second, OCS1 is enabled by Intel's Oaktrail chip, which has a PC level capacity. Finally, OCS1 operates on Windows 7 instead of a mobile OS such as Android. Therefore, users can enjoy computer games such as Starcraft, WoW and other 3-D games on the mobile device.
Other features of the OCS1 include Wi-Fi and a detachable HSDPA unit.
Ocosmos is planning to work with large on & offline distributors to build distributional base for OCS1. With regard to contents, it will collaborate with leading game developers to convert existing games to be more suitable for the TC platform. Efforts are also being made to market the product into America, China and other global markets.
Well, good luck with that. I do not see how gaming can be the driving angle for the OCS1 with the Nintendo DS, Sony PSP and the iPod touch out there. Windows 7 on a small device sounds cool at first, but what to do with it?
Centurion Corporation said it has agreed to acquire a piece of land located at Seberang Perai Selatan in Penang, Malaysia, for RM6.3 million ($2.45 million). This marks the group’s first acquisition in another state of Malaysia outside of Johor.

ESPN broadcaster Linda Cohn is filing a lawsuit against a New York ice rink after a group of kids pushed a heavy coin machine which allegedly fell on her, resulting in a huge gash that required 25 stitches.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
