IFA 2010 Wrap-Up

IFA 2010 Wrap-Up

IFA 2010 isn't quite finished yet - the show continues through until midway next week - but it's had its stab at the major headlines. Would-be iPad "killers" and 3D were this year's themes, with Panasonic, Sony, Sharp and others all trying to convince us that the 1080p HDTV we bought a couple of years ago should really be traded in for a new, 3D-capable set. Product of the show, though, has to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab, with the Korean company delivering a slate that we consistently heard people say was significantly more appealing than they expected.

Microsoft Kinect Will Let You Play Sitting Down, Only When Sitting Makes Sense

Microsoft Kinect Will Let You Play Sitting Down, Only When Sitting Makes Sense

Whether or not you own a Nintendo Wii, you've probably seen the commercials. Or know someone who owns one, and have experienced the gameplay for yourself. With that in mind, we all know that Nintendo intended for people to get off the couch and actually interact with their games on a whole "new" level. Sure, there's some commercials out there that show plenty of folks sitting on their couch, tilting their Wii remotes all over the place, but with accessories like Wii Fit and what not, we all know where Nintendo was going with this. (And subsequently, yes, Sony's Move is positioned in much the same way.) But, what about Microsoft's Kinect?

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 20 2010

Like most weeks in the tech world there was a lot going on last week with new gear surfacing and cool happenings. Early in the week we published our review of the HTC Smart. We were concerned that users who purchase the device will get tired of Brew MP and wish for an Android device. Seagate confirmed this week that a 3TB HDD would be coming later this year. HDD storage capacities are growing rapidly, it seems like 1TB drive have only been here a short time.

Casio “digital art” photo frame prototypes promise passive entertainment

Casio “digital art” photo frame prototypes promise passive entertainment

Casio aren't planning to follow Sony down the path of interactive digital photo frames - as Sony have done with their Dash, adding Chumby widget support - but instead see the devices as a passive form of entertainment.  In an interview with Tech-On!, Casio described their intent as turning the digital picture frame into the "third screen", one which can "sensitively adapt to the users' lives and environments."  They've also put together a prototype to show that passive doesn't have to mean passé.

Acer Aspire Z5600 Review – Multi-touch capable All-in-one PC

Windows 7 touchscreen PCs are slowly growing in number, but the all-in-ones we've generally seen have used notebook components rather than desktop ones. That makes for a more compact machine, certainly, but it does mean you miss out on processing power. Acer's Aspire Z5600, however, packs a full desktop CPU along with a 23-inch multitouch-capable display, and the company sent us over their first review unit to see how well it performs.
