Look at this new LG ultraslim slider phone: LG-KV5900 Sold under the LG KTF Cyon range, only in Korea as for now Specific features: 512MB integrated memory, MP3/WMA/OGG player, a CMOS cam (exact resolution unknown). And 15mm (0.6") thick. It feels like some cross between a mobile phone, an Olympus m:robe MR-100 and a black iPod nano... I think its glossy black, slim and simple design, and the undercover screen, are gorgeous and very Apple. Just add a...
You could also read these articles of the subjet made by two more specialized websites : - "Intel Revamps Xeon Plans to Boost Performance" at Xbit Laboratories - "Intel announces major 2006/2007 roadmap changes" at Ars Technica. You can see that Xbit Labs is slightly more optimist than other sites with the changes announced by Intel. They claim the new planned "dedicated high-speed interconnect" to the whole chipset with Tigerton's "Caneland" platform is a) far...
You know the new dualcore Intel stuff: Yonah/Sossaman early 2006, quickly followed by Merom/Conroe/Woodcrest, H2 2006. These processors are a lot about energy-efficiency thus laptops, a little for desktops, and lame servers. Not very high-end, i.e. workstation-class (Power Mac). The Whitefield processor would have been a very powerful x86 chip planned for 2007, succeeding Woodcrest, with a multicore design (2 cores and 4 cores models, 65 nm then 45 nm early 2008 ), part...
Agree with you about all the crappy unnecessary features: the purpose of a camera to take photos with cellphones is indeed pretty ridiculous. But you need a camera lens on top in order to make videocalls (think 3G, 3.5G and 4G high speed mobile networks, not just the old GSM). Apple has all technologies to make it possible: add Airport to the phone, so it doesn't use mobile operators' networks when a free wifi network is available (or your own private wifi network at home...
The theoric data rate of wifi 802.11n is exactly 540 Mbps. The "real" rate will probably be less, about 100 to 200 Mbps in a range of 90 meters (300 feet) at 2.4 Ghz (backward compatible with wifi 802.11b/g networks). Very comfortable to stream HD video content Moreover and related to streaming media, the standard implements QoS (Quality of Service) which gives priority to tasks. This means the movie you're watchin, wirelessy streamed from your Mac/PC to your TV, won't...
Intel 802.16 WiMAX is for longer ranges (and this is NOT wifi). wifi 802.11n is for faster speed. Due to successive delays in finalization of the standard, Intel recently pushed to the creation of EWC (Enhanced Wireless Consortium) with more than 30 major members (note that Apple is one of those, and Microsoft isn't). The interesting notes point toward a release in 2006, and speeds up to 600 Mbit/s.
An anonymous source gave hardmac.com (macbidouille) these screenshots of a PC running Mac OS X for Intel (or a secret higher-end Apple MacIntel):Original article at hardmac.comIt seems, if these screenshots are genuine, that this PC would be a high end system, Xeon server-class, with four Pentium 4 CPUs @ 2.8 GHz each (or two dualcore Pentium XE). Thus with Hyperthreading activated, Mac OS X uses 8 logical processors... and it seems to schedule tasks very well to all of...
Vaporware? Well, if you talk about "affordable" SEDs, yes... but for functional, available (and expensive) ones, Toshiba is shifting entire parts of their TV line production units to SED technlogy now, at the Himeji factory, Hiratsuka, Japan, with the help of Canon in their $1.9 billion joint-venture "SED Inc." Some official information : - "Canon, Toshiba to create joint venture for next-generation flat-screen SED panels" at Canon.com, September 14th, 2004. -...
Logitech MX900 Bluetooth works with Mac OS X. It has a wired dock combining a BT dongle + recharging base, but you don't need to plug it in your Mac: simply pair MX900 with your BT-equipped Mac (and NOT with the BT hub), then plug the dock elsewhere on an electric wall-plug, in order to use it from time to time only as a charger.
SED technology looks a lot like how plasma TVs work (and a bit like old CRT TVs too)... a plasma TV has "plasma" i.e. ionized gas inside the gap between the surface emitting and the surface receiving (the display) an electric discharge? And what is an "electric discharge" but electrons moving along a path in a conductive medium? It appears to me that SED replaces plasma by vacuum, and electric discharges by fine-controlled electron beams. Finally, it's all about emitted...
