Harry Winston Opus Eleven looks awesome

Harry Winston Opus Eleven looks awesome

I can really appreciate how good designer watches look. I would never buy one though. Geeks don’t really wear watches today. This is perhaps the most awesome watch ever and it is called the Harry Windows Opus Eleven. It reminds me more than a little of Mickey Mouse though.

iPad accounted for $9.566B out of $9.6B in tablet sales in 2010

iPad accounted for $9.566B out of $9.6B in tablet sales in 2010

I have an original iPad and I really like it, I can certainly see why the tablet did so well on the market. Take into account that for much of 2010 it was the only media tablet on the market and you can see why the numbers for tablet sales in 2010 were so lopsided. According to numbers released by Gartner, the iPad accounted for almost every bit of the tablet sales last year.

Samsung 22-inch transparent LCD displays hit production

Samsung has announced that it has begun mass-production of 22-inch transparent LCD displays, with two models - capable of either black & white or color images - in the first range to be offered. Rather than a traditional backlight, the 1680 x 1050 displays (which have 500:1 contrast ratios) use ambient light to illuminate them; Samsung has boosted transparency to 15-20% (over 5% in normal panels) so that sunlight is enough to make the picture visible.

Coffee Joulies will keep your tongue from burning

Coffee Joulies will keep your tongue from burning

I am not a coffee drinker, my wake up and get going drink is a nice can of Dr. Pepper. I know some people that simply can't function if they don't have their coffee in the morning. If you are one of these sorts that must have coffee to get going and you are too impatient to wait for your brew to cool Dave & Dave over on Kickstarter have a project that you need to help fund.
