One of the reasons to move from 32-bit to 64-bit versions of an operating system is to allow the computer to see more memory. Hitachi has announced that its massive 3TB HDDs are now shipping to OEMs and system builders for use in computer systems. This 3TB HDD is the first to break the 2.2TB storage barrier on a 32-bit Windows XP computer with no additional hardware according to Hitachi.
Hitachi's latest capacitive touchscreen is getting next-gen iPad soothsayers excited, since the new panel offers all the multitouch benefits of the company's current models but also works through gloves and even with a plastic stylus. According to TechOn, the new projection-capacitive touchscreen allows everything from fingertip icon control, stylus handwriting input and winter use of gadgets without having to first shuck your gloves.
When it comes to external storage that you will take with you on the road most of us want the drive to offer good storage capacity, but to be compact as well so it's easy to carry. A company called G-Technology has unveiled a new external storage solution called the G-Drive that is very thin at only 128.6mm L x 82mm W x 9.9mm H.
Hitachi has pulled the wraps off a new enterprise class HDD that is claimed to be the industry's fastest and most power-efficient 10,000 rpm enterprise class HDD. The drive spins at 10,000 rpm and uses the 6Gb/s SAS interface. The drive is a small 2.5-inch drive with up to 600GB of storage capacity.
Hitachi used their time at CEATEC this year to showcase a brand new 6.6-inch display, which is primarily meant for tablets. And while seeing another IPS-based display may not be the highlight of the show, Hitachi did manage to surprise quite a few people with the similarities between their new screen, and the Retina Display that Apple unveiled a few months ago, with the launch of the iPhone 4. Hitachi's new display packs in the ppi, and makes a tablet's resolution something to drool over.
Laptop-sized 2.5-inch hard-drives are gradually catching up to their bigger brethren when it comes to storage capacity, with Hitachi unveiling the industry's largest to-date. The Hitachi Travelstar 7K750 packs 750GB into two 9.5mm platters spinning at 7,200rpm, and has a a 16MB buffer and 3Gb/s SATA interface.
Hitachi has grown to be one of those companies that's focusing a lot on technology of the future lately, and we don't have a problem with that at all. Especially when they're making movies like Minority Report come to life. This time around, though, they've managed to create the same kind of touch panel that devices like the iPad and iPhone use, but with a bit of a twist.
Motion controlled computers aren't as fresh or new as they were a year ago, but that doesn't mean that when we see cool technology being demonstrated, we still don't get a bit weak in the knees. This time around, we get a brief glimpse into the future, thanks to Hitachi and their new motion-controlled interface. There are a few moments in the demo that doesn't seem to translate well between user and system, but in the end it looks like a great way for us to navigate our User Interfaces in the future.
Hitachi has outed its latest external hard-drive range, the Hitachi LifeStudio family, and seeing as how you need to sex-up storage if you're going to differentiate yourself these days, the new HDDs get automatic content management and nifty little dockable USB memory sticks. Plug in a LifeStudio drive and it can automatically pull out the photos, video, music and documents and organize them on its own storage - it can also do the same with Facebook, Flickr and Picasa web galleries - then present them on a "3D wall" UI for easier browsing.
As for the detachable USB key, on the LifeStudio Plus drives there's a dockable 4GB memory stick that users can set up with specific files from the main unit that they want to be able to take out and about with them. The USB key always has the latest versions, and when you return it automatically syncs back any changes you've made.
