Cisco umi 1080 telepresence kit gets price & plan reduction; umi 720 and free app incoming

As far as we're aware, Cisco's umi 1080 telepresence system hasn't exactly taken the video calling world by storm - the company itself says that, since the set-top camera went on sale in October 2010, "thousands of people" have used it - but perhaps a price cut, a cheaper model and a free computer app will address that. The Cisco umi 720, as the name suggests, will demand less broadband speed for reduced image quality, with a lighter impact on your wallet.

Sony VPL-VW90ES 3D projector goes on sale for $10k

Optimus 3D vs Optimus Tab: Not all HD 3D video is created equal

Optimus 3D vs Optimus Tab: Not all HD 3D video is created equal

When we caught up with LG earlier today, to check out the freshly announced Optimus 3D and Optimus Tab, we couldn't help but wonder about the discrepancy between the smartphone's 1080p Full HD 3D recording capabilities and the tablet's 720p HD 3D recording. Turns out, there's more to a 1GHz, dual-core chipset than just its ARM cores: the Optimus 3D's Texas Instruments OMAP4430 has native support for Full HD recording in 3D, while the NVIDIA Tegra 2 in the Tab doesn't.

Jawbone ERA Review

Jawbone ERA Review

Jawbone's newest Jawbone Bluetooth headset has arrived, the Jawbone ERA, evolving the discrete styling of the ICON and taking its place at the top of the company's range.

Call Me When Streaming Matches Blu-ray

Call Me When Streaming Matches Blu-ray

I’ll be the first to admit that when Blu-ray first launched, I was skeptical. I wasn’t sure if the new technology was a worthwhile investment for someone like me. Sure, it delivered more storage and higher-quality video and audio, but I simply saw it as another way to take my hard-earned cash for little benefit over DVD.
