There's something here. See and feel this, so you can make the decision. You know, the vast majority of Chinese PMPs are underwhelming, and we can't say for sure that the Windows G85HD is any different, but the video walkthrough of the user interface has us interested at the very lease. Reportedly, the all-white, touchscreen-centric device packs a Rockchip RK2806 processor, a 4.3-inch panel (800 x 480), 3.5mm headphone jack, 720p video output, 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, FM radio tuner, a Chinese-English dictionary and support for a multitude of file formats. There's nary a word on when and where you'll be able to find this, but if you find yourself situated in Shenzhen, feel free to scope things out at the local market and fill us in.
That is Not like many solar devices that require an abundance of intense sunlight to be useful, this is really different. XPAL's new Solar Egg does its thing even in "medium levels of natural light." The magic SunBoost solar conversion technology is supplied by a company called Intivation from The Netherlands, a country that's not exactly know for its tropical weather. XPAL claims that the internal 500mAh battery can be charged at over 90% capacity in just four hours of average sunlight exposure and can detect a "wide range of devices" like MP3 players and digital cameras to provide the appropriate level of power for charging. It'll ship next month to select regions -- where that is we can only guess for now.
You will be impressed with this one. Forget everything you know about Windows Mobile. This is new concept about windows. Seriously, throw the whole OS concept in a garbage bin or incinerator or something. Microsoft has done what would have been unthinkable for the company just a few years ago: started from scratch. At least, that's how things look (and feel) with Windows Phone 7 Series. This really is a completely new OS and not just Microsoft's new OS, it's a new smartphone OS, like webOS new, like iPhone OS new. You haven't used an interface like this before. Still, 7 Series goes wider and deeper than the Zune by a longshot, and it's got some pretty intense ideas about how you're supposed to be interacting with a mobile device. We had a chance to go hands-on with the dev phone before today's announcement, and hear from some of the people behind the devices, and here's our takeaway. And don't worry, we've got loads of pictures and video coming, so keep checking this post for the freshest updates.
Ok... now I will tell you about this one by one. First, the look and feel. The phones are really secondary here, and we want to focus on the interface. The design and layout of 7 Series' UI (internally called Metro) is really quite original, utilizing what one of the designers (formerly of Nike) calls an "authentically digital" and "chromeless" experience. What does that mean? Well we can tell you what it doesn't mean -- no shaded icons, no faux 3D or drop shadows, no busy backgrounds (no backgrounds at all), and very little visual flair besides clean typography and transition animations. The whole look is strangely reminiscent of a terminal display (maybe Microsoft is recalling its DOS roots here) -- almost Tron-like in its primary color simplicity.May be you will ask why??? To us, it's rather exciting. This OS looks nothing like anything else on the market, and we think that's to its advantage. Admittedly, we could stand for a little more information available within single views, and we have yet to see how the phone will handle things like notifications, but the design of the interface is definitely in a class of its own. Here's a few takeaways on what it's like to use...
Start screen: the Start experience is completely revamped, now focusing on sets of tiles which represent links to applications or contacts. It's a completely contextual experience which can be customized both by users and carriers, and allows people to "promote" items higher up in the list. To the right of this screen is a long, vertical list of all your apps for quick jumps. It will take some time getting used to this layout; one or two tiles per line, and that long list which goes up and down rather than left and right, but honestly -- this does have some advantages. Things seems less out of reach in this configuration, and Microsoft swears that they'll be working closely with developers to build widgets that make use of the concept.
General phone navigation: If you've used the Zune HD, you know what this is like. Lots of bold text on the device, lists with text cut off on the sides of the phone, and additional screens to the left and right driven by arrows pointing you in either direction. For the most part this works, though in instances like email, it feels like there's a bit of wasted space. Everything else is super stripped down -- the calendar app looks like vector line art, the browser seems to be using the bare minimum to show its content (which isn't necessarily a bad thing), and the phone application is essentially monochromatic. On the other hand, you've got a beautiful and robust photo app (with pinch to zoom, as in the browser), and the Zune experience is perfectly integrated... but what did you expect?
This is a developing story, and we're updating the post with more info, pics, and video as it becomes available, so stay tuned for more!
All people understand about mosquito's. Malaria is a huge problem worldwide, so its no surprise to anyone that plenty of people spend lots of time trying to think of ways to rid the world of mosquitoes, prime movers of the disease. Nathan Myhrvold's company Intellectual Ventures Labs (and former chief technology officer at Microsoft) is focusing on just that. Using widely available and common electronics parts, Intellectual Ventures has made lasers which can kill mosquitoes mid-flight -- at a rate of about 50 to 100 per second. Now, you will not believe it. Myhrvold first publicly demonstrated this laser (which is made of parts of printers, digital cameras, and projectors) at the TED conference the other day, using hundreds of mosquitoes in a clear glass case to make his point. The laser's software determines the size and shape of the target before deciding whether or not to shoot, so, for instance -- it wouldn't take aim at a person or a bumblebee. Wow...Great tool. The lasers could be used to protect hospitals and clinics in areas with high mosquito populations and in areas with a high rate of malaria infestation. Now, this is surprisingly not the first time we've seen such a trick -- though it is the first time we've seen video evidence of it working. There are some insanely informative (and murderous) videos at the source link. Be sure to check them out.
United State - It's a little sad when the world's largest production OLED television measures just 15-inches diagonally but that's the unfortunate state of the panel business at the moment. Why Not make 14" or 17 ". Nevertheless, there are still plenty of fans (including us) waiting for LG's EL9500 OLED television to ship outside of South Korea. According to OLED-Display, LG hopes to bring the flat-panel wonder to the US sometime in the middle of 2010. Of course, it'll still cost somewhere around $2,500 by the time it lands but hey, at least you'll have the option for local retail and support.
This is the really new. We're not going to lie, it was a major let down when we found out that this glowing V-shaped mouse with faux Microsoft branding is nothing more than a splendiferous concept, but we're holding back the tears as best we can. It's Very easy to use and so comfortable on your hand. The super futuristic-looking eVouse doubles as both a regular mouse and a pen sensor (in theory, anyway) or as its designer Marcial Ahsayane says, "it's a mix between a classic mouse and a tablet PC." We assume that means you can -- you know -- write digitally with it, but it will also work as an air mouse with touch sensitive buttons. Maybe you can discern a little more from the images below where it seems to morph into a boomerang of sorts, but in the meanwhile we'll be in the corner wishing this thing had a ship date attached to it. You hearing this, Microsoft?

It would be fun if everyone could call each other without language barriers. Dream realized this is what Google's trying to develop automated voice translator that will translate one language to another. "We thought the translator's voice and the voice may be realized in a few years," said Franz OCH, head of Google translator service as reported by Times Online. He believes the voice to voice translator may be done if the accuracy of voice recognition engines and improved language translator again. He said Google was doing research to make it happen in the next few years.
Google currently has a translator service for 52 languages in the world with all database that always be added the accuracy of it. In addition, Google also has a voice recognition engine currently used in the search service applications on smartphones.
The system was developed to combine the two technologies and using Google's current database indexing languages from various sites around the world. However, recognition is not easy to make translation machine because each speaker's voice had a dialect, accent, and how to talk different.
"However, such recognition engine will be effective for use in mobile phones are very personal experience for the user. The phone will recognize speech from sound recordings before," said OCH.
Machines like this is not the first there. Apple has released the first voice translator application on the iPhone by name even though the current Jibbigo is available for translators English into Spanish and English to Japanese. With funding support from the U.S. Defense Agency through the project by DARPA, would artificial engine Google will be more qualified?
There are an attractive offer from Microsoft for those who buy Office 2007 from official sources between March 5 and 30 September 2010. For who are activated copy of Office 2007 before September 30 may request a free upgrade to Office 2010 at the latest on October 31. This is if they send an activation numbers Office 2007 and proof of purchase. Once Microsoft receives the information, you will be offered free downloads or DVDs sent through the mail for a fee.
This information written by Van Heusen in In the Know blog on the site's U.S. Microsoft Partner Community. Unfortunately, that blog post seems to have been inherited by Microsoft.
It is not known whether a similar offer will be made in the country. However, if you are offered a free upgrade, then choose how to download and install for postage which includes an upgrade DVD can be quite expensive.
IBM's processor more fastly with the presence of new, eight-core processor (core) IBM Power7, Monday (8/2/2010) which will compare with products made by Hewlett Packard and Sun Microsystems. In fact, each core is capable of executing four activities - commonly called thread - so this really one processor has 32 virtual cores.
Breakthrough made money in the Power 7 is a combination of two IBM processor technology, the chip technology "Power" with a chip technology "Cell". Cell-based processor has been also used in various devices from the Roadrunner supercomputer at Los Alamos National Laboratory to the PlayStation 3.
"We took the essence of Cell program that helps the process of calculations (floating point) and put it in the core Power7," said Bradley McCredie, members of the Systems and Technology Group of IBM, as quoted by CNET.
Power7 designed to support the development of grid computing, computer circuit to double the speed of computing processes. This processor is offered in three classes each for the IBM Power 780 modular high-performance servers that support up to 64 cores, 770 Power for the middle class, and Power 755 for high performance computer clusters or high performance computing cluster (HPCC) with 32 cores.
Currently the Google search engine can sort the best in the world. However, the actual server computers used the same as other companies. I wonder what if Google uses the computer's future far more powerful than the current computer technology? As written in the blog, head of Google's image recognition team, Harmut Neven, revealing quantum computer technology is being developed Google. Google quietly been doing the last three years with D-Wave, a Canadian company that has developed a quantum chip called Chimera.
One of these technological applications is the ability to detect objects from images and videos in the database. In a conference Neural Information Processing System, the development team success both companies reported making algorithm to detect cars in the picture for the chip.
The algorithm is "trained" to recognize the form of a car with 20,000 photos, each drawing half the existing car and the other half did not. The result, created an algorithm that can accurately distinguish the existing image that is not his car and within one second.
"He selects the images that have cars with far greater speed than conventional computers, much faster than any computer that is in Google's data centers," said Neven.
Later a computer when it is used, the speed of Google's search services will be far more powerful and far more shortcuts than the existing services currently. When did it happen, hopefully soon.
Technology Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) from Cisco not only successfully launched a satellite Intelsat IS-14 on November 23, 2009, but also succeeded in orbiting the well and used in space in order to test the network capabilities. This achievement is the use of the router's Internet Protocol (IP) in the commercial GEO satellite for the first time.
"This achievement is the next step of our strategy to expand the network without boundaries in space and re mendefiniskan how to support the communication satellite," said Steven Boutelle, Vice President, Cisco Global Government Solutions Group in a press release received Kompas.com.
IRIS is an IP router development of radiation-resistant for use in satellites and other spacecraft. IRIS offers several advantages compared with conventional satellite technology. IRIS can deliver data to more than one recipient directly, without passing through several hops teleport so as to eliminate delays in data transmission and increasing the use of transponders. Software embedded on the Cisco router and a modem board can be upgraded while in orbit, thus increasing the flexibility and speed return on investment.
By leveraging the IRIS capability, users will gain a real mobile network. IRIS carried capability will support network services for voice communications, video, and data, while also helping government agencies, military and other stakeholders to communicate with one another using Internet protocol and existing devices.
IRIS program is part of the Department of Defense Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) which is managed by Cisco and Intelsat General Corp.. IRIS will begin commercially offered after three months of the end JCTD in April 2010.
It seems very fond of British people have a license plate that reflects the limited or private owners. They are even willing to spend enough to have the license plate "person" is. UK Department of Transportation Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) Personalized Registrations (Personal Number Plates Regestrasi) successful sales record in the auction that they held. Autoevolution.com quoted as saying recently, the police numbered car plates "1OOO" successful dilego price of £ 80,000 or approximately Rp 1.1 billion.
Auction action takes place in a hotel in Wansford, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom. In fact, for these plates, place the action bargaining strict bid about 10 times before reaching the highest bidder.
"Opening the early years, there's nothing better than this. Our expectation is so great against the license plate '1 OOO '. During the years ahead, we will see the plate with the letter' O 'roaming the streets," said Damian Lawson, Marketing Personalized DVLA Registrations Manager.
In the second position, the unique plate reached a high enough number is "1 LFD". This plate successfully sold with a value of 20,000 pounds (USD 298 million).
DVLA Registrations Personalized party will return to auction plate for the second time in the middle of this year at Old Trafford, the football team's headquarters Manchester United on March 24. A total of 2000 unique police numbers will be offered.
Streetfighter-style modifications are now beginning into various regions. Like the 2002 Honda Tiger's of Nurullah Irwandi Dumai, Riau, Sumatra, the figure was changed to "Robofighter Style". Modifications done by Custom Suswanto and Billy, who was known as the adherents of West Java Style or WJS.
There was no extreme changes in the body, except the fuel tanks because it follows the line of the rear traction that little tapering. Uniquely, the speedometer is put at the end of the tank (near the handlebars).
Wanto-familiar call-adherent Suwanto strong and quite diligent streetfighter experiment. Besides pure style combines European, sometimes spiced modification own ideas. As with Tiger, he was admitted following the Ducati streetfighter designs taken in its basic form.
From his work, the curves and the composition of the elbow once firmly in most of the body, while the style WJS by making the center more solid and sustained bloom. As part of the tank, added underneath the wings so impressed gambot, but with a smaller rear. All the changes to the body using galvanized plate material.
To be more appropriate composition, the rear chassis rebuild the 22.5 mm pipe used as a new framework. Original framework is still in use, according to Wanto, only the center part of the backbone. Muscular impression DELTABOX supported applications, plus a swing arm, including the front shock absorbers. To the rear, he put Suzuki Satria shock absorbers.
Launch of Apple iPad predicted to rival the sales of equipment e-book reader (e-reader) which was introduced Sony, Amazon, and other vendors. However, Russ Wilcox, President and CEO of E-Ink, supplier of special screen for the e-reader manufacturers boast not afraid of losing competitive.
"E-reader would be more than iPad behavior for simple economic reasons in the consumer device market," said Wilcox, in an interview that the site was launched Forbes, Thursday (28/1/2010). He believes that potential customers already have a lot of laptops that no longer need iPad is referred to as a multimedia entertainment device.
According to him, iPad is not the reliable e-book. The reason, the weight is three times more than e-readers in general and 30 percent thicker. "You need two hands to carry. He uses a backlit screen and too expensive to be distributed to each person in the house," he said.
He agreed with the opinion that the iPad was not hard for competitors made the Amazon Kindle. Forbes launch, there were at least five reasons that iPad no better than the Kindle. First, the iPad cheapest price is 499 U.S. dollars, while U.S. dollars 259 for Kindle. Second, the iPad has not supported the world's largest publisher of Random House like the Kindle, so would many of the titles not available.
The third reason, iPad battery life is 10 hours, while the Kindle is a week. Fourth iPad use LCD screen which emits brighter light that make you tired faster than e-ink display is more gentle and keep the light seen outside the room. Fifth, the transition only iPad assessed to test the level of e-book preference given Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, once said that the e-reader will not sell because he thinks people no longer want to read.
"We are delighted Steve changed his opinion about whether the American people want to read. Every person who spent 10 hours reading on the LCD screen will be amazed when I saw the E-ink," said Wilcox.
Microsoft allegedly is preparing new ammunition for attacking the smartphone market by developing the Zune based phone, music player made by Microsoft. If true, whether the iPhone could be as successful as that set out from the iPod? The information that Microsoft is developing an iPhone from the Zune leak in a file that is an information reference the identity of the hardware in the package is the latest USB driver for the Zune. Among the hardware listed in the updated software package version 22.214.171.124 is called a reference device with the Zune phone.
This is a concern Long Zheng, pengemat Microsoft technologies in his blog. Zheng says that device must be made by Microsoft because the vendor rules that work together to change the reference identity is prohibited device.
However, if Microsoft is currently developing a new smartphone still has not been established. So far, Microsoft is spreading desigin reference to the hardware vendors to develop a new generationWindows Mobile device. Microsoft also is doing the standardization of experience using the device in various hardware models through the code Pink improvement, Skybox, and SkyMart.
No explanation from Microsoft about the leaking of such information. However, sooner or later, Microsoft may still retain business smartphone user market share given the greater.
Mosquito spraying drugs made from chemical ingredients DEET is not good for the human body. Intent site mentions, some research indicates that the compound DEET (Diethyl-meta-toluamide) on drug-related spraying brain damage. Now, instead of using harmful substances in the home, better choose a natural, right?
Here are some natural substances are able to drive the mosquitoes naughty.
* Citronella. This is one of the most famous able to drive mosquitoes. To be applied, choose pure citronella essential oil, not oil air freshener (fragrance oil). Fragrance oil which is used to burn is not enough to rub and dispel the mosquitoes.
* Soybean oil. The New England Journal of Medicine reported that soybean oil is as effective as DEET mosquito repellent. Soybean oil prices were quite affordable, plus good for moisturizing the skin. Other research says that the content in soy can slow the growth of hair on the body when applied.
* Catnip. Some kind of fragrant plant called the effectiveness of catnip is suspected to have 10 times better than DEET in mosquito dispel.
* Neem seed oil, extracted from plants that grow in India reportedly more effective than DEET. This research was issued by the Institute of Malaria in India.
* Lavender. Lavender oil also has a fragrant scent and has a calming effect, both to dispel the mosquitoes. Look for the lavender essential oil on the body dibalurkan. Or, lavender-scented soap.
* Garlic. Mosquitoes can not stand the smell of garlic. If you are really bothered by mosquitoes, try to eat lots of garlic, the smell will come out through your skin. Of course if you do not have a problem with this body odor.
Why do mosquitoes like swarming around our bodies and clothes? To answer that question, ecological chemist Walter Lear examine whether such a man produces the inviting smell of mosquitoes. He and his colleagues discovered a substance that they seek, namely nonanal, a substance produced by humans and birds that emit scents invite Culex mosquitoes.
He initially experimented on himself. "I measure myself," said Leal. His colleagues put a tool like an injection in her skin, then wrapped with aluminum foil for insulation. After an hour, the end of the plunger is inserted into an instrument to measure the levels of nonanal.
"It realy was my body produce a lot enough of nonanal," Leal said, "I think my body releases 20 nanograms (nonanal) per hour. That is considered high."
Leal is now aware that this is the reason why it was when he was in Mexico, despite doing preventive measures, he still hunted mosquitoes.
"So many Mosquitoes, I almost could not believe it," he reminisced, "I sprayed DEET (anti-mosquito) everywhere, to the hair. And when am I aware of the mosquitoes bite even through my shirt, and thick enough. If missed one point, it will be found mosquitoes, and bitten. Mosquitoes can bite through even jeans, as long as they know that behind it there is blood vessels. They also can detect body heat. "
Mozilla Foundation finally released the latest browser, Firefox 3.6, web browser software that claimed to be the "World's Fastest Browser". In Mozilla website home page is written "World's Best Browser". What are the changes made in the browser compared to its predecessor, so Mozilla pls say so?
"Mozilla has improved its overall performance and accelerate time to run it," said Mike Beltzner, director of Firefox, as reported by Computerworld, Thursday (21/1/2010).
Firefox also includes new security features that will check the plug-in in browsers such as Adobe Flash Player or Apple Quick Time so it is always been updated. Plug-ins are suspicious will not be executed, and only to be told how to do updates if desired.
In addition, this new browser also features Personas feature that lets users choose the background theme of the browser in accordance with the preferred design of an estimated 30,000 are available. Firefox 3.6 also supports the latest web technologies such as CSS, DOM, and HTML5, including fullscreen video and web for open font format (WOFF).
"Firefox offers users to manage their own experience, this is the most customizable browser and the browser is also very fast. So, overall, I think Firefox is the best complete package," added Beltzner.
This browser is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac and can be downloaded on the Mozilla website. Firefox users can immediately upgrade to new version by doing a "check for updates" in the menu "help".
