We've all done silly things to save money. Many guys try to groom their own sideburns and the results can be disastrous and obvious. No one wants that lopsided look, so to avoid such grooming errors, there's the Slim Trim Razor.
Synaptics - who, if you look in your laptop's Device Manager or equivalent, you might find make your touchpad - have announced two new gestures that their hardware supports. ChiralRotate and Two-Finger Flick will be particularly useful in photo viewing and editing apps, lending themselves naturally to - in the case of the former - rotating images, and - in the latter - moving between images.
Android Community got to spend some more hands-on time with the T-Mobile G1 this evening, at a special developers event held in Dallas. Big In Japan - the company behind Google Application Challenge award winning app ShopSavvy - were there, demonstrating the software in action on a G1. Fully operational, we were able to scan a barcode (in this case, a Logitech webcam) and compare prices both at local stores and online.
Dell have responded to customer criticism and dropped the premium pricing it placed on the Alpine White version of its Inspiron Mini 9 netbook. The netbook, which begins at $349, originally had the glossy white casing as a $25 upgrade; that's now been flattened so that black or white will cost the same.
VidaBox have announced the RoomClientHD, a compact high-definition video streamer capable of receiving full 1080p and lossless audio from any of the company's media servers. With an optional slot-loading Blu-ray drive, the RoomClientHD measures 6 x 6 x 2-inches but still manages to pack a DVI port for HDMI/DVI/VGA output, gigabit ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port and audio inputs and outputs.
Back when WowWee announced their impressive Rovio WiFi mobile webcam, they also showed the creepy Mr Personality robot. Based on the same omni-directional platform as the Rovio and the Tri-Bot, Mr Personality is a gurning, giggling, wise-cracking "robot companion" with an LCD display for a face. I was hoping WowWee had forgotten about Mr Personality - because he scares me - but sadly not; there's a new video of the monstrous beast in action in preparation for his imminent launch.
This is Steve Weinger, senior marketing manager for flash memory at Samsung. In his hand is a Samsung SSD; off to the right is a three-story drop. Since solid-state memory is always being credited with extra durability over traditional drives, Steve introduces the SSD to the drop by launching it off the side of the building. Check out the video after the cut.
Courtesy of a little judicious searching from Berry Reporter, we now know the price Best Buy have set for the upcoming BlackBerry Bold smartphone. The QWERTY-bearing smartphone is priced at $679.99 unsubsidized; there's no telling what that will translate to once they've stuck you for a two year AT&T contract, but figure a significant discount.
Samsung have taken the wraps off of the industry's smallest 2GB DDR3 memory chips, built using 50nm processes, which allows for 60-percent higher productivity than DDR2 chips of an equivalent density. It opens the door for up to 16GB RIMMS (Registered In-line Memory Modules) that save 40-percent of the power required for the same RIMM based on 1GB DDR3 chips.
