Enable Push Gmail on your iPhone and Windows Mobile Phone

Google has finally added support for Email in their Exchange Sync platform for mobiles – though it only works for the iPhone OS and Windows Mobile devices with ActiveSync. Nokia Series60 users shouldn’t be concerned because they already had support for Push Email via Nokia Messaging application, which is faster than Google Sync as far as my experience goes.

 Anyways, to enable Push Email support, all you have to do is activate Google Sync for your device. If you already use that, then just enable Email sync from the server settings, and Mail for Exchange would start working instantly.
One more thing for iPhone users, you have to be running iPhone OS 3.0 or higher. You may also want to backup your Contacts and Calendar in case something goes wrong.
On a side note, Google says that Push Email would consume a lot more power and will certainly degrade battery life. So you should only use it on your own risk. Personally, I think its worth it. Check the links below for more detailed instructions on how to enable Push Email for your device.

Kingston Launches HyperX Plug and Play RAM for Intel PCs

Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.

There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.

The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
