Omega Double Eagle Co-Axial Chronograph

Omega Double Eagle Co-Axial Chronograph

Sure they are aimed at golfers, but I’d wear one and I have never been any further into a golf course than one trip to the driving range and putting greens a long time ago. They are covered in gold and diamonds and they tell the time.

There are actually two watches, a mens and a womens, not much of a difference, just something of note. That means that the Omega Constellation (as in lots of diamonds) series got two new additions.

Drones, hubs and clouds: Ubuntu Core makes IoT play

Drones, hubs and clouds: Ubuntu Core makes IoT play

Linux is making another play for the Internet of Things, with Ubuntu figuring that as devices from thermostats through home hubs to personal robots and drones get smarter, they'll need a more flexible brain. Snappy Ubuntu Core is the latest platform for smart devices, promising gadgets that run exactly the same software whether locally or relying on the cloud, and thus bypassing questions about whether users are regularly upgrading, if old firmware is still in the wild, and where apps are going to come from. While Ubuntu clearly isn't alone in its IoT ambitions, Ubuntu Core does at least have an advantage some rival schemes don't: it already has users.

Iran trials suicide drones for Kamikaze strikes

Iran has tested a "suicide drone" designed to crash explosively into targets on land or in the air for the first time, part of a huge military exercise underway near the Strait of Hormuz. The so-called "mobile bomb", dubbed both the Yasir and the Raad-85 by local press, is believed to be based on a homegrown - though foreign inspired - drone design revealed by the Iranian army last year, said to be capable of flying for around ten hours before dive-bombing its victims.

Imagination launches MIPS Creator CI20 dev board

When it comes to "small computers", which covers anything from embedded systems to mobile devices, ARM, and to some extent Intel, are probably the best known names. But that doesn't mean they're the only game in town. The MIPS architecture, which powers an equally big number of embedded systems, including game consoles, is also a contender. Developers for those systems now have their own board to play around and experiment with, now that Imagination has released its own Creator CI20 as part of its programme to hook in more developers and users.

Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

It would appear that amongst the software and hardware releases Google has detailed this week is their first giant iPad competitor in the Google Nexus 10. At first glance the differences might not be abundant to an everyday average user other than the obvious Android vs iOS and feel of each device. As it turns out though, these two tablets, for the first time, create a battle between the iPad and an Android-toting tablet made not just by a major manufacturer, but Google as well.

Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 promo: Our Win7 tablet is as obvious as a hammer [Video]

Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 promo: Our Win7 tablet is as obvious as a hammer [Video]

A video demo of Fujitsu's Stylistic Q550 tablet has been released, and the company seems pretty keen to differentiate the slate from other Windows 7 machines. According to director of mobile product Meinolf Althaus, Fujitsu's custom UI attempts to mimic the usability of a hammer: not in that you have to thump it, but in that you automatically recognize how to interact with the tablet, rather than needing to remember what does what.
