Mix: TV Guide, Quanta deal, Mobile Phones, Apple campus
TV Guide magazine has announced a new weekly column called “Downloads,” which will feature information about television shows available for download or online viewing each week.
Following a vague report in March that said Quanta Computer had secured a contract from Apple to manufacture “video iPod devices,” the Chinese-language Commercial Times reported today that the order has been shifted to an “unspecified EMS provider.”
Increased memory card capacities and sales growth could help cell phones become true iPod competitors. “In 2005 the average capacity of memory cards sold for use in cell phones was 112MB per card,” said Stephen Entwistle, vice president of Strategy Analytics. “By 2010 we predict that this will have increased to around 1.6GB, equivalent to an annual average growth rate of over 70 percent.”
The Mecury News reports on Apple’s recent announcement of a new campus: “By the time Apple flattens the site’s old-style structures and builds new offices for as many as 3,500 employees—a process the company expects to take about four years—Apple could easily have spent $500 million, two real estate experts predict. That would make the company’s second campus one of the costliest Silicon Valley commercial ventures in recent memory.”
