I Hate You, Dell

I Hate You, Dell

This morning I got to know Dell very well. I'm not sure how many people work for the company, especially in sales and customer service, but I talked to 15 of their, ahem, lovely employees.

Archos 28, 32, 43, 70 & 101 Tablets Announced, Feature Android in Range of Sizes

We can probably safely assume at this point that tablets are here to stay. At least for awhile. And considering the effort that Archos has already put into the Android-based "tablet" market, there's no surprise here that they've just pulled the curtain off five (5!) brand new tablet devices, all featuring Google's mobile Operating System.

Pixels Eight Times Smaller Than Apple’s Retina Display Created

The Retina Display, which is one of the main features of the iPhone 4, stirred quite a bit of discussion after the official announcement. Even scientists got into the fray, putting in their own two cents whenever they were asked. (And yes, we asked.) Apple boasts that the Retina Display is as good as it gets, as the human eye can't even register anything better. More or less. But that's not stopping researchers from making it better, though. It's just been made known that pixels eight times smaller than those used in the Retina Display have been created.

Babel Fisk Speech to Text Glasses Will Show the Deaf What Someone Says in Real Time

For the hearing impaired, getting along in an every day situation, amongst a crowd of people that don't necessarily have the same impairment may be an issue. And while many can read lips, that may not be the easiest way to go about things. Especially considering not everyone moves their lips the same way to make the same words, which can be a real pain.

SanDisk Fuze+ MP3 Players Announced, Available Now with New Design

SanDisks' Fuze line-up of Personal Media Players have managed to remain present on the market for awhile now, without ever bringing too much attention to themselves. They're what you might call the "minimal" PMP, with not much going for them in the features department.
