Japanese bank plans to use palm readers instead of cards at ATMs

ATM systems that we use today work pretty well, but there are flaws with security of the systems that can allow hackers and thieves to take money from accounts not belonging to them.

TouchPad will be “number one plus” tablet promises HP

TouchPad will be “number one plus” tablet promises HP

HP expects its tablet to be better than number one when it launches. I think the company may be setting its sights a little too high. HP says that it is calling the goal number one plus for the TouchPad tablet when it launches later this year. I guess an argument could be made with HP running away with the top spot in computer shipments, it is number one plus. The tablet market may prove to be a much harder nut to crack for HP though with the huge lead other firms like Apple have in the tablet realm.

Palm Voice for Verizon Appears on Website, Features LTE

An interesting product page has popped up onto the Internet today, featuring a device that looks strikingly similar to a device that's been available for quite some time now (but is no longer). We seem to be looking at a Palm Pre Plus for Verizon, and the specifications for the device listed here do indeed outline the handset in question. However, there's a few key alterations in this product page that have us wondering if a mistake has been made, or if we've caught a glimpse of what we should expect to see at HP's webOS special announcement.

NVIDIA push Tegra 2 for Superphones plus Tegra Zone app

Tegra 2 isn't new, but NVIDIA is hoping that 2011 will be the year that the dual-core mobile processor comes into its own. Last we heard of "superphones" it was Google trying to brand their Nexus One as such; now NVIDIA is seizing on the title to describe devices packing multi-core CPUs, speedy GPUs and frugal power requirements, the first device being LG's Optimus 2X.

Palm Pre 2 for Verizon Shown Off in eBay Auction, Subsequently Pulled

While the Palm Pre 2 may be making the rounds over in some European countries right now, as well as in GSM form, and unlocked here in the States, there are several fans of the new device, and primarily webOS 2.0, that are (trying to) wait patiently for the device to land on Verizon. While the device has yet to receive an official release date, or even be shown off yet with Verizon branding, there's no doubt that there's at least a few devices running around on the Verizon network. And sure enough, someone with one of those devices put it up on eBay, where you could have been the lucky buyer. Until the auction got pulled.
