LG's 1,000,000:1 contrast HDTV isn't the only LCD wonder they're planning to demonstrate at CES next week. Unable to keep it to themselves for another seven days, the company has announced the world's first "Trumotion 480Hz" panel, a combination of LG's existing 240Hz technology with a new backlight capable of being rapidly switched on and off.
MSI have officially announced the U115 Hybrid netbook, which they're calling the world's first with "hybrid storage". While the MSI U115 Hybrid might be powered by the usual Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, where it differs from the mainstream is in its duo of storage: both a standard hard-drive (either 120GB or 160GB) and a solid-state drive (either 8GB or 16GB). The benefit, according to MSI, is battery life and speed.
Sony Japan's 'VAIO New Mobile' teaser campaign - otherwise known as "this is the netbook we're announcing at CES 2009" - has added two new images for us to obsess over. Both detail the upcoming netbook's keyboard, which appears to bear a strong resemblance to that on the VAIO TT/TZ only with the addition of a trackpoint control stub.

We talk about video game violence as a very controversial subject, but what about violence from getting a video game system? Apparently 26-year-old Heath Blom did not want the Wii that his grandparents bought him for Christmas so we went nuts on family members.
The Format War might have ended many moon’s ago, but Blu-ray never took control of the world’s largest market, and in fact, China has its own HD format (China Blue High-Definition) to counter foreign license fees from BDA. Darn CBHD is much more resilient than HD-DVD despite having zero studio endorsements. Nevertheless, recent setback; the Taiwanese pullout, and now the China made Blu-ray for Chinese market could finally put this issue to rest, or could it?
Just as the Playstation 3 starts catching up to its competitors the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft’s Xbox 360, it sees a sudden slowdown around the holidays. The early results of this holiday season were not in Sony’s favor as they fell 19 percent from last year.
Having central heating is easy and covenant, but what is convenient doesn’t always mean it’s going to be cost effective. This method heats rooms that are not in use; no one really needs every single room to be the same temperature. The Vent-Miser Programmable Energy Saving Vent saves you money by controlling individual room temperature.
Apple must be laughing at this so-called reliable source, Digitimes has revised its last report on Economic Daily News regarding the manufacturer behind the iMac all-in-one PC. As of today, Quanta is out of the picture, it was Foxconn who has secured a 800,000 units shipment per month contract with Jobs to build the allegedly next gen iMac to be announced at Macworld Conference next week.
So unless there are new updates next week on who makes what from which contract. Here’s the new standing : Foxconn and Catcher Technology are in bed to supply the magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis while Foxconn will seek partnership in cooling module from Auras Technology. A cooling module? Could that possible hint a change in current-fan based cooling system?
In any case, we will find out in a week there will be a new iMac or just another rumor. Just a reminder that Slashgear will be bringing MacWorld conference live coverage. Be sure to check us out at http://live.slashgear.com
