Microsoft hire comedian Seinfeld to take a bit out of Apple

50°
310w ago - Microsoft have hired Jerry Seinfeld for a huge $10 million in order to be a pitchman for Microsoft and essentially take a bite out of an Appple. In particular, he will battle against the Mac Vs PC commercials.

To quote: The Seinfeld ads, part of the software company's new reported $300 million advertising campaign, are slated to begin running on September 4, and will feature the funnyman along with Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Although his eponymous show has been off the air for a decade, Seinfeld, thanks to re-runs, is still a very bankable pitchman who starred in a series of successful American Express ads.

The Wall Street Journal also reports that Chris Rock and Will Farrell are similarly being considered as pitchmen for Microsoft.

Nvidia GTX 280/260 55nm comes by September

50°
315w ago - Fudzilla: We said a few months ago that Nvidia drives two projects in parallel. GT200 65nm that got launched and branded as GTX 280 / 260 is out and there is a GT200 55nm chip that should be launched shortly.

Our sources are telling us that 55nm version of the chip should be ready either in late August or in September, which means that Radeon HD 4870 X2 will get some competition.

We believe that Shaders and clock of 55nm GT200 are definitely going to be higher than the 65nm and the chip itself should be a bit cooler.

This means R700 will get some better competition, and the fact that this ATI's dual card is going to end up faster than GTX 280 doesn't mean ATI has already won the war.
 

A croc comes to life in LittleBigPlanet

324w ago - Play. Create. Share. That's the mantra for the LittleBigPlanet team. We know that the "Play" aspect of the game is swell, but what about the creation aspects?

Media Molecule wants to make their creation engine as simple as possible, and they released a few images showing how a deadly crocodile can be constructed using just a few spare parts.

Playing with Legos was always fun, but something of this depth and magnitude has been almost unheard of -- at least for a mainstream audience.

Hopefully, we'll be able to showcase some original creations of our own when we get our hands on with LittleBigPlanet soon.
 

XP SP3 hits Windows Update, Vista SP1 makes a comeback

325w ago - At last the moment you've been waiting for...

Microsoft wants to hit your version of Windows with an update, and this time you don't have to go rummaging around the internet to find it: just fire up Windows Update and let Microsoft do all the work.

After a few false starts XP users get the much-anticipated SP3 update, which promises speed boosts and some of the fancy security features found in Vista.

If you're a Vista user you're also in luck, since Microsoft has restarted its Vista SP1 distribution after some compatibility problems with Microsoft Dynamics RMS. Sounds like a party.
