This is quite possibly the dumbest idea I’ve seen in a very, very long time. Essentially what this product suggests is that you lay part of this long ass adjustable strap across your laptop’s keyboard, then close it, and sling it over your shoulder leaving it open to the environment, being banged around, or worse, stolen.
I am not entirely sure how this thing works, but apparently the gist of it is soap-less dish washing. Somehow it uses sonic waves of water to remove even the deepest particles of dirt without the slightest amount of soap necessary.
Some guy put together and instructable on how to make an electric mountain board or whatever those off-road versions of skateboards are called. It’s pretty ingenious too taking most of his parts from electric scooters.
Starting with the projector, it has a 2000:1 contrast ration and 2220 lumens, which means it can be used just about anywhere. Add to that the 720p and 1080i support with its native 800x600 resolution and you’ve got yourself a nice projector. For those with more of an eco friendly mind it also has an ECO mode that saves power, lowers noise pollution, and extends the lamp life, the cost will save some paper too at a meager $499.
The JavaBot is, as you guessed, a robot that makes you coffee. The thing is, it’s not your usual fare of inserting pre-ground coffee that sucks and then it brewing and pouring it, this robot does it all short of picking the beans itself.
So Asus has apparently sold over a million Eee’s sold in 5 months, since its launch date, and in celebration Asus decided to let us all in on the details of its next concoction. Obviously it will have an 8.9-inch LCD screen, a 1.3MP camera, 12 or 20GB of flash storage depending on OS, and something called FingerGlide.
Psystar has brought into the public light an issue that has long plagued the tech industry. Why does Apple keep their software closed to only Apple’s hardware? Several projects have sprouted, some even growing wings, that are efforts to bring OS X, and all its updates, to custom built X86 machines, including OSX86, and most recently Psystar. So, now you are likely wondering, why I think Apple should work as hard as they do to keep the supply of OS X-base computers to just Apple hardware.
The notebook will be rolled out as part of HCL’s MiLeap brand of HCL Leaptops. It will be running Windows XP Home, weigh less than 1kg, and have a 7-inch TFT LCD touch-screen.
For a computer as old as the IIGS this computer looks only modern. Maybe it’s the acrylic keys or the 15-inch color LCD screen. The old ass mouse brings it all back to its roots though.
Starting with several revisions to the PlayStation Store, this firmware brings a number of useful updates. The PlayStation store sees a redesign that should make things far easier to find. As a gamer you also get the opportunity to preview the content you are about the purchase with a range of screen shots and/or video previews, lastly a shopping bag will allow you to track all of your past purchases.
You also get the DTS-HD Master Audio support for Blu-Ray movies that allow the PS3 to output audio in high-bitrate form to up to 7.1 channels. Obviously that was a feature pushed by Home Entertainment geeks, not so much gamers.
