The Daily Slash: November 11 2010

The Daily Slash: November 11 2010

Double Slash! Today is the first day we've ever run a post by the name of "SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up" for those of you who just can't wait until nighttime to get your daily dosage of technological gear news in list form. Then, it was a day just bursting at the seams with information about one phone: Nexus S. This Nexus S, also known by its codename Samsung GT-i9020, was today first accidentally(?) outed by Best Buy in a momentary broken online ad, then there were photo leaks and secret updates leading to a possible name confirmation, then another Best Buy leak leading to the date November 14 for store displays! Coincidence? Just about as much coincidence as a My Little Pony turned soldering iron.

The Daily Slash: October 20th 2010

Welcome to one giant jungle cat of a Daily Slash, so wild and crazy I keep calling it the daily Slasher in my head. Two giant bits of news hit at once: the Back to the Mac event and the release of Windows Phone 7 handsets (hint: we've got three of em to look at!) Plus a whole torrent of other wonderful and fabulous bits of news that'd otherwise be big but was sort of CRUSHED by those two big guns. Shall we? Let's begin!

Intel push Smart TV, WiDi tablet and name-check iPad at IDF 2010 [Update: Video!]

Intel push Smart TV, WiDi tablet and name-check iPad at IDF 2010 [Update: Video!]

It's not just new CPUs at IDF 2010; Intel is also making a big deal out of Smart TV products and the spread of internet connectivity, highlighting its involvement in next-gen set top boxes such as Logitech's Revue for Google TV and the recent platform-switcher, D-Link's Boxee Box.  Intel's Atom CPU is unsurprisingly at the core of their drive, with chips like the CE4100 taking center stage.

Update: Video demo of the Intel WiDi tablet, motion-recognition system and more after the cut

Apple TV hands-on

Apple TV hands-on

The rumors were true, the Apple TV really has slimmed-down, gotten wise to streaming and turned itself into an affordable and tempting home entertainment device.  We grabbed some hands-on time with the impressively compact media player after the Apple keynote, and while we'll need to get one into our living room to know exactly how well the Apple TV's new rental focus delivers, we've still got some first impressions after the cut.

Google TV: Good Idea, Poor Initial Execution

Google TV: Good Idea, Poor Initial Execution

At last week’s Google I/O conference, the search giant revealed plans for new web video technologies, an update to Android, and Google TV. Before we get into what Google TV is, it’s worth noting something that it isn’t – a tablet. (You’re probably thinking, “I don’t need a fancy analyst guy to tell me that Google TV isn’t a tablet, it’s sort of self-evident.” Bear with me.) Apple’s unbelievable early success with the iPad is due in large part to the fact that the iPad isn’t an entirely new product – it’s a sibling to the iPod touch. However, in addition to extending the iPhone/iPod/iTunes ecosystem to include the iPad, Apple rewrote its apps for the larger form factor and encouraged developers to specifically target the iPad with a segmented app store. Google is now targeting all three screens, the PC, TV, and phone, but missed the opportunity at its annual developer event to promote its vision for things that fit in between the phone and PC. There will be dozens of Android tablets out this year, and none of them will have an optimized experience. I think this is a major missed opportunity.
