The Daily Slash: November 9 2010

Let me talk to you for a moment about a couple of the odder things that happened today, and this is outside the story you're going to hear about in the special "The Daily Slash" section you all know and love. First, there's a lot of ports, ROMS, and hacks flying around the smartphone world on a day-to-day, but today there was a rather important one surfacing: Android to iPhone. Like two rival gangs having a child together. No violence between them yet, but someone DID get shot today - a Galaxy Tab. In response, Angry Birds released 45 new levels, and someone records a UFO on an HTC EVO 4G. TRON throws a card into the hat with their 3rd giant trailer, iPhone's GLASSGATE ramps up, and all Apple handhelds grow a little tail. All this and more, today, on THE DAILY SLASH!

SlashTABLETWAR You know there's a barrage of bad tablets coming out now as if the biggest tabs were falling down a mountain, knocking the smaller ones free as they topple. Here's something that, when you watch the Queen-laden introduction video below, might be excellent enough to take flight and knock free a few pebbles of it's own. This is the "Kno," the "text book of the future," founded by semiconductor physics PhD holder Babur Habib and serial entrepreneur Osman Rashid. This video is traveling fast across these internets, and I kinda sorta wish I had one of these "Kno" devices when I was in school, for sure. Find more information at the Kno homepage and/or watch the uplifting video below.
