It can be distinguished from other means of input, such as the use of pointing devices like the computer mouse, and text input via speech recognition.

Chrome Test two

Chrome Test two
After a friend insisted my testing was flawed, I checked the Chrome memory usage with similar (though not exact) same tabs:

18 tabs running (counting the about memory tab) including streaming video and audio content. Many pages are average, low image types but there is a variety.

Task Manager shows 19 instances of chrome, running 286mb and hogging my machine.

About:memory shows it using 226MB private memory with a total at 281MB. Virtual memory is listed at 309MB private and only 55MB mapped

That said… yes they opened fast, but then I was experiencing lag.

→→ Similarly, opening the same tabs in Firefox3 uses 128mb according to Task Manager, though with the mem leak issue I’m sure that’d just increase as It stays open or tabs are opened/closed. They opened a bit slower but I didn’t have lag after the same point as I did with Chrome.

Maybe Chrome is the wave of the future…. for dual core machines? Vista, no XP?

→→ IE8 beta – 9 tabs, mainly microsoft’s own sites and streaming services, opens 9 instances in TM. The MB count is much higher – 30mb for the smallest and 65 for the highest with a total of around 392mb! AND it crashed twice to pull them up.

Bose Earphones

Bose Earphones
Ever since my in-ear panasonic earphones died, I have been searching for a good earphones. Went to Bose show room in taipei and tested this earphones, the sound is awesome.

The bass is smooth (not over-driven and distorted bass sound) and the sound is clear. The amazing thing is Bose created a small audio filter to get rid of any outgoing noise from MP3 player.

This earphones is not a in-ear canal type, so as to protect your ears. Might not be comfortable for first time users.

My favourite tracks to play with this earphones:
1. Damien Rice – Cannon Ball
2. Michael Buble – Home
3. Eric Claton – Change The World
4. Enigma – Return To Innocence
5. Michael Jackson – Who Is It
