Samsung announces World’s Smallest color laser printer

Samsung announces World’s Smallest color laser printer

Samsung have announced two compact color laser printers, one of which is apparently the "world's smallest" while the other trades off size to gain a flatbed scanner. The CLP-315K, the record-breaker, is 20-percent smaller than its CLP-300 predecessor and yet has "drastically" improved print quality. In numbers, that works out to 2,400 x 600 dpi maximum resolution, 16ppm black prints and 4ppm color prints, with 32MB of internal memory. All that with just 45dB noise output.

The BOSS Comes To Prisons – Body Orifice Security Scanner

Sometimes I see a product and I think… that’s perfect! The Body Orifice Security Scanner, or BOSS, is something along those lines.

Prisons in England and Wales are using the BOSS to scan inmates for “hidden objects”. This chair comes with three sensitive sensors capable of detecting hidden materials as small as a paperclip within the body.

Truthfully, I think it’d be a lot more useful in another setting, airports. Just a quick sit in the chair and no more hassle of “random inspections”. I think it would be quicker as well as less invading.

Dell XPS M1530 – Thin and quite attractive

Imagine the XPS M1330, but about 2 inches larger in the diagonal, that’s pretty much what this laptop is. It has nVidia graphics, but to 256MB video ram, and the option for a Blu-Ray drive and HDMI out. It has Bluetooth, and WiFi N.

It offers up dual core processors from Intel, a card reader, a slim remote that stows away in the ExpressCard slot, HD display choices to get the most out of your media, a 2MP web cam, a fingerprint scanner, and low-pro optical drives featuring either Blu-Ray or a DVD-burner. You get your choice of 3 colors, Crimson Red, Tuxedo Black, or Alpine White too.

Starhub and EZ-Link offer cell phone payment system for public transportation

Starhub and EZ-Link offer cell phone payment system for public transportation

At least they do in Singapore. All you have to do is tap your NFC capable phone to the scanner. NFC stands for near-field communications.

So basically this works a lot like most of the newer credit/debit cards that are coming out with the scanning technology were you just have to tap your card to the reader and off you go. The only difference it works with cell phones instead, this may not be the first mobile phone based payment system, but it definitely seems like the most functional.
