Intel Core i7 Name
Intel on Sunday quickly confirmed recent leaks with official word that its next-generation Nehalem processor architecture will be named Core i7. The move continues the Core name despite a major platform change and signals the new line's status as Intel's seventh major architecture since it began with the 8086 decades earlier. The highest-performing versions of the processor line will still add the Extreme Edition badge to reflect their extra features, which often include a speed multiplier unlock friendly to overclockers.
LG enV2 and Keybo Review
LG's first attempt at a hybrid phone with the original enV was, for the most part, successful in hooking phone users who spend most of their time sending text, but for actual calling was often too big and difficult to control. The enV2 (known as the Keybo in Canada) aims to solve many of the outstanding problems of the original device in one fell swoop. LG manages to accomplish many of its goals, but whether these changes are enough to sway those who were sitting on the fence the first time around is another matter to be left to Electronista's full device review.
