Memorex M-Flyer has spring-loaded USB action

There are hundreds, if not thousands of different styled USB flash drives. Personally, I don't really care for the ones that are shaped like some type of food or anything. I like the ones that are sleek and simplistic like this M-Flyer Pilot from Memorex.

OLED cellphone concept gets back to slick basics

Designer Jacob Palmborg might be one of those people who's a little fed up with all the iPhone hype, and just wants a phone which is, pure and simple, a phone.  His cellphone concept manages to capture that simplicity and look pretty damn gorgeous at the same time; a slice of slightly-bent plastic and metal, it uses a full-surface OLED touchscreen for menus and numeric pad.

Embedded WinCE contest pits technology against ignorance

Embedded WinCE contest pits technology against ignorance

Each year Microsoft pokes the creative cortex of students in their Windows Embedded competition, challenging teams to use an eBox 2300 running Windows CE 6.0 and fashion something to satisfy a set theme.  This year that was "imagine a world where technology enables a better education for all," and there seems to have been some pretty lateral thinking going on.  The fifteen finalists have been announced, and they'll go through to judging to see which top three teams take away the $15k-worth of prizes.
