Qi wireless charging standard finalized; first products could drop fall 2010

Wireless charging is one step closer to cross-platform ubiquity, with the news that the Wireless Power Consortium - which counts among its members such manufacturers as Nokia, RIM, HTC, Samsung and LG - has finalized the Qi charging standard.  Defining a technology capable of wirelessly funnelling up to 5W into a mobile device, the new standard will hopefully mean an end to fumbling with microUSB or proprietary chargers, and instead having a single platform on which multiple devices can be rejuiced.

Kodak wireless OLED digital frame now available at Amazon

Just in time for holidays; the first of its kind, World’s first OLED powered Kodak photo frame with on-the-air connectivity is now available at Amazon. If you have a deep pocket here’s what you’ll get for a dollar shy of a grand : a thin profile 7.6-inch WVGA screen with incredible vibrant color, 180-degree viewing angle and 30,000:1 contrast OLED sensations, Wi-Fi connection for streaming photos from pc or photo-sharing sites; news, sports, weather reports from Framechannels , 2GB storage memory, and video and music playbacks.

One thousand dollar price tag for a digital photo frame at sub 8-inch is a big sum of money to spend; but the Kodak is a bleeding edge photo frame with OLED screen and an industrial’s first touch-frame control system, it’s touch sensitive too. It requires no backlighting support and Kodak even throws in a dynamic ambient light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness according to room conditions. That and no color shifts with its brilliant viewing angles worth the asking price for the rich and wealthy.

2015 Lexus NX first-drive: Crossover Crunchtime

The 2015 Lexus NX isn’t your accountant’s Lexus. Aggressively designed, and breaking new ground for Lexus with its first turbocharged engine, the new NX attempts to distill what has worked for the RX into a package more appealing to hip urbanites, young families, and those who might more regularly find mountain bikes in their trunk than Whole Foods bags. True to recent form, there’s even a warmed-up F SPORT version to offset the hybrid worthiness just a little. The NX doesn’t hit the US officially until the end of this year, but I grabbed some early time behind the wheel to see how it’s shaping up.
