Creative Live! Cam Notebook Ultra

Creative has released a total of 4 new Webcams all of which are Plug n Play capable, have integrated microphones, and as far as webcams go, look pretty attractive. The most interesting is the Creative Live! Cam Notebook Ultra which claims the ability to take up to 5MP still images.

New HP Blackbird Alpha configuration

This new configuration integrates the Intel QX9650 into the configuration along with several other very high-end components to make the ultimate gaming rig. I got to see the Blackbird 002 at CES and I almost dropped to my knees and started bowing, it truly is a thing of beauty even when its off, but when its up and running you can add raw power to that list of things it is.

Creative ZN-Z32G-BK 32GB flash MP3 Player launched in Japan

This little gem launched today, and I assume the 32GB is flash storage, every site I saw this thing at referred to the storage as “memory” and the capacity is a rounded out flash size like 8, 16, 32, 64, instead of HDD sizes like 200, 250, and 400GB. Anyways, it’s a Creative Zen model, and it comes in black, and it can store about 8k songs.

Creative Zen Stone Plus giving Apple even more troubles

So first, the Zen Stone came out from Creative, and the fact that it wasn’t an Apple product, combined with the fact that it was the same size, with similar functionality as the Shuffle, and it was slightly cheaper, well that was enough to help the original model sell a good number of units. Well now it appears Creative is besting Apple’s Shuffle in more areas than price.

In fact they are fixing one of the few flaws of the shuffle, the lack of a screen for navigational purposes. Then they are upping the storage to iPod Nano levels with 4GB for the Zen Stone Plus.

IFA 2007 – Creative launch new ZEN PMP (video)

At their IFA 2007 Press Conference Creative pretty much said “iPod who?” as all eyes were on their credit-card sized ZEN PMP.  The tiny device – which measures just 55 x 83 x 12mm – is easily Creative’s best mobile device to date, with a 2.5-inch, 16.7-million-colours screen, a choice of 4, 8 or 16GB of internal memory (expandable via an SD/SDHC slot) and support for MP3, AAC (unprotected), WMA, WMV, MPEG-4, DivX and XviD files.

Creative’s Stone DAP gets Plus upgrade

If I’m blunt, the Creative Stone struck me as being a bit “meh”.  Apple has done the screenless PMP already, and was – in my opinion – shown up nicely as competitors lined up to undercut it in price while simultaneously adding features and a screen.  Perhaps Creative have read my mind, anyway, because they’ve now introduced the Stone Plus; a 2GB DAP with a simple OLED display.

Creative’s latest webcam ends driver despair

It seems like it’s been ages since we’ve seen the smiling face of Everything USB‘s Scott Clark as he uses any excuse to get photos of himself onto the internet.  In this case, it’s reviewing Creative’s latest webcam, the Live! Cam Optia, that gives him the opportunity, the sly minx.  Still, he puts together a damned good review as well, and the Cam Optia is one of a growing number of slightly unusual webcams notable for – in some cases – not needing any specific drivers.

Expanding house balances nature with space

Current fashion in architecture seems split between designing buildings that stand out in their surroundings and make a statement, and buildings that blend into the environment and whose statement is more about living harmoniously with what was already there.  The problem with the latter, perhaps, is that in preserving the location you sometimes have to compromise the design of your construction.  As technology and building materials advance, however, innovative ways to maximise living space and have a home in-keeping with nature are becoming more accessible and imaginative.

 

This forest home designed by 24H architecture sits happily within its natural setting, and yet its occupants aren’t denied the space or light by compromise.  The end section extends out, revealing a bank of windows and giving more internal room.
