For a long time when you said the name OCZ most of us would think RAM for gaming computers. Today OCZ is a much broader maker of hardware and tech goods with offerings including numerous SSDs, flash drives, power supplies and more.
There's no surprise that the KIN Two, of the newly formed KIN lineage, is getting the tear down treatment. It's a new gadget, of course. So, does this tear down get to the dirty details of what makes the KIN Two tick? Are there any bombshells waiting in the deep dark sections? You'll just have to read on after the break to find out.
OCZ offers numerous SSDs that hit different performance and price categories. The most reasonably priced of its offerings is the Onyx series that debuted in March for under $100. OCZ has announced new line of SSDs that skip the standard SATA interface in favor of using the PCI Express slot on the mainboard to bypass any potential bottlenecks in performance.
Hello geeks and geekettes and welcome to the latest SlashGear Week in Review! Early this week we saw the iTable. I reckon that the iTable is sort of like an iPad, with legs, that can hold your beer and pizza while you play Farmville. If Professor X lived in the world of Bioshock, this steampunk power wheel chair would be his ride. The thing even dispenses your adult beverages after piping the booze through an ice chiller.
The Dell Adamo is a beautiful, gorgeous, willowy notebook-cum-sculpture that’s not easy to resist on an impulse buy. Dell’s decision to break the pivotal four-figure mark makes it even harder. As of now, the Aspire model in the Adamo lineup is all yours for the base price of $999.
Acer have announced their latest netbook, the Aspire One AO532h, and as you'd expect it's based on Intel's new Pine Trail processor. The AO532h has a 1.66GHz Atom N450 CPU, 10.1-inch WSVGA display and 1GB of RAM, along with a 160GB hard-drive and WiFi b/g/n. According to Acer, it can run for up to 10 hours on the high-density 5,600mAh 6-cell battery (or 8 hours on the regular, 4,400mAh pack).
The last Synaptics concept we really got excited about was the Onyx smartphone - in fact we went all the way to the company's head office to play with their prototype - and now they're back with a new smartphone idea. The Synaptics Fuse takes multitouch capacitive sensing and throws in force, grip and proximity sensing, along with haptic feedback and 3D graphics. The end result is a squeezable smartphone that spreads its sensors not only across the touchscreen but down the sides, too, so as to be fully usable even with just one hand. Fuse is a collaboration between Synaptics, TI, Immersion, TheAlloy and The Astonishing Tribe, and is based on a TI OMAP 3630 processor and a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen.

Patent infringement suits are certainly nothing new in the technology industry. Over the last year, these sorts of suits are increasingly filed in a court in East Texas because the judge has a history of siding with the patent holders. The latest suit to be filed in the Eastern District of Texas is by Klausner Technologies against RIM and Motorola.
