BB Desktop Manager Support for Microsoft Office Outlook 2010

microsoft-office-2010-outlook-options Microsoft® Outlook® 2010 is not supported with BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 5.0.1. As a result, the BlackBerry Desktop Manager might report that Microsoft Outlook is not installed, or it might not be able to open the message store.
This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by our development team. Support for Microsoft Outlook 2010 32-bit version will be available in the release of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager targeted for August 2010. form blabkberry

Chevrolet bringing 10,000 Volts in 2011, but it’s the current of change that will kill you

10x0702oub34teew Good news for all electric heads out there: “intense interest” in the Chevy Volt has led General Motors to expand its launch markets to now include Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Texas. They join California, Michigan and Washington DC, although only Austin in Texas and New York City will have the honor of retail Volts before 2010 is through; the rest of the new markets will get their fill in 2011. Though Chevy still hasn’t set down a final date and price for its electric car, late 2010 availability seems to mesh well with a November 1 rumor we heard earlier. Beyond this year, 10,000 units are planned to be built in 2011, with 30,000 more coming up in 2012. So it’s gonna be a pretty exclusive club however you look at it, now can we get a cheesy music video going for this car or what? by Vlad Savov.

Intel said to be cooking up DDR3-lovin’ Atom N475 and Atom N455 CPUs

intel-atom-penny We’ve maintained that Intel’s range of Atom chips were simply too weak to really love and adore the way a slab of silicon should be, but that’s probably because of our infatuation with things like “overclocking” and “Core i7 Extremes.” Whatever the case, it’s beginning to look a wee bit better for the lineup, as Fudzilla has it that the company will be adding DDR3 memory support to the 1.83GHz N475 and 1.6GHz N455. Both of those chips are expected to maintain their current TDP ratings, and both are expected to launch in Q3 of this year. Nah, DDR3 compatibility won’t make your next netbook scream or anything, but when we’re talking Atoms, we’ll take all the baby steps we can get. by Gadget Mix

HP Mini 110 and 210 netbooks get Atom N455 and N475 accoutrement

hp-mini-2010-20100702 Looking for a Mini that has a little more to offer in the processor department? HP has thoughtfully upgraded the Mini 110 and Mini 210 to offer your choice of Intel’s N455 or N475 Atom processors. Those chips bring DDR3 memory compatibility to the table, which both netbooks now offer by default, while the optional N475 brings either one up to 1.88GHz — though you’ll have to pay an extra $25 as proof of your commitment to handle that sort of blazing performance. The default 110 with 1GB of memory starts at $280 right now, while a base 210 will set you back $330. by Netbooks.com

Google acquires ITA for $700m, dives headfirst into airline ticket search

online-travel-ecosystem-google-ita Look out, Kayak / Bing Travel — you both are about to have your respective worlds rocked. While Google has managed to stay on top (or close to the top) when it comes to almost everything search related, the company has curiously allowed smaller niche brands to handle the travel side. Even amongst the hardcore Googlers, avid flyers typically head to a place like Kayak to weigh their options, while vacation planners either do likewise or turn to Bing Travel. In a few months time, we suspect some of that traffic will be diverted back to El Goog. The company has just announced plans to acquire Cambridge-based ITA Software for a cool $700 million, which will put one of the world’s most sophisticated QPX software tools for organizing flight information into the hands of the planet’s most dangerous search ally. According to Google, the pickup will allow consumers to search and buy airline tickets with less hassle and frustration, though it’s quick to point out that it has “no plans to sell airline tickets [directly] to consumers.” For the travel junkies in attendance, there’s a high probability that you won’t find any better news coming your way today than this.
