The problem with laptop and cell phone screens is that in direct sunlight, they don't show images very well. Actually, this was the case until a short time ago. Now the screens can get bright enough to be seen under most bright conditions.
Unfortunately that wonderful feature comes at a hefty price. A brighter screen sucks the juice out of your battery very quickly. Samsung has developed a new screen that will detect the amount of light in the area and automatically adjust the screen's brightness accordingly.
The screen measures 2.1” which is perfect for a cell phone. These should begin production sometime in the second half of the year.

Everyone, and I do mean everyone that has owned a CD has come to the sad realization that one of their favorite or most important disks has somehow gotten scratched enough to hinder playback. So what do you do about it? Most people will either give up and throw it out, or use one of those devices that attempt to buff out the scratches. But if that fails, what do you do?
It would seem today is a video day for me, I rarely post any videos but today I found two that I just couldn’t resist writing up. This one features a man in the UK playing the violin. It seems normal enough and even a little dull, however, the guy owns one bad ass violin. You have to take a gander at this one. I apologize in advance; it would seem the camera man has ADD as the cameraman apparently has a wandering eye.
I think a book light is probably the dorkiest gadget ever. I mean what self-respecting person would be seen with one?! Okay, so I own one. What? I like to read at night once everyone has gone to sleep. When I was much younger I had a night light and I would curl up in the floor to read by it. Yes I am a dork.
