Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 tablet lands for pre-order

When we think about tablets or slate computers generally, the iPad and Android offerings come to mind. There are a number of other slates out there though that looks sort of like the tablets we are all familiar with but pack in hardware that is more like a netbook. The Fujitsu Q550 is one of the slates that is sort of like a tablet, but has more in common with a netbook than the iPad. The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 slate is now up for pre-order.

This week in science, we know that computers can drive us crazy at times, but can a computer actually be made insane itself? Apparently so. We have a schizophrenic computer that may actually help us understand the disease in humans. Plus, a couple of other crazy ideas: robotic cat ears controlled by brainwaves, and a DIY stylus for operating your smartphone (or other touchscreen device) with your nose. We also have space news, a new way to use wind power, and a healthy dose of robots. Continue past the cut for all the science goodies.

Shuttle makes customizing the SG41J4 barebones mini-PC easy

When it comes to barebones mini-PCs, the name that always springs to my mind is Shuttle. This is the company that has been peddling little computers for years that take up little space and generally come with some of the hardware installed in a cute little chassis waiting for the user to buy it and add their own CPU, RAM, and storage. One of the things that Shuttle hasn’t traditionally offered is a way that a user can customize their system.

Toshiba T851/D8CR notebook can show 2D and 3D content at once

I think 3D is cool on a notebook or a TV, but some things I prefer to view in 2D. I don’t want to have to read a lot of text wearing 3D glasses for instance. Some video I prefer in 2D as well, especially if the effects are the sort that are hard on eyes. Toshiba has a cool new notebook that is able to show both 2D and 3D video on the screen at one time.

There has been just a little bit of excitement leading up to the launch, and all kinds of craziness popping up around the web regarding the game. Legos, aliens, and disappointments. Pity the poor college students who couldn't afford to buy the game. See our favorites after the cut.
