HTC’s launched a new flagship handset for Mobile World Congress 2012, the HTC One X — codenamed Endeavour. Dipping into design notes from The Nokia Lumia line, the One X is a unibody device machined from white polycarbonate that uses Gorilla Glass to protect its 4.7-inch 1280×720 non-pentile Super LCD 2 display. Stunning outside appearances aside, HTC’s newest features an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor for the Global edition and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core for the LTE iteration. Memory specs on the box show 1GB DDR2 and 32GB of built-in storage — 26GB of [...]
Why, it was only yesterday that we were eyeballing a dual-GF104 board from Galaxy, presuming it an artifact of a 2010 project that went nowhere, but there’s at least one NVIDIA partner that’s going to deliver exactly such a creation, and soon at that! EVGA has just set loose the details of a new GTX 460 2Win graphics card, which ticks along at 700MHz, has 672 cumulative CUDA cores served by 2GB of GDDR5, and reportedly collects more 3D Marks than NVIDIA’s finest card out at the moment, the GTX 580. The company also gleefully reports that pricing of the 2Win model will [...]
iH8sn0w has posted a video of upcoming Sn0wbreeze 2.2 jailbreak tool for the iDevices running over iOS 4.2.1. The intesting feature of Sn0wbreeze 2.2 is the integrated Pacman game, that a user may play while the jailbreak tool is busy in building IPSW. It also allows usser to switch between Pacman game and IPSW building screen.
For those who are not familiar with Sn0wbreeze, it is a jailbreaking tool just like PwnageTool for iDevices that creates custom .ipsw files. But unlike the PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze 2.2 works for Windows users.
At the moment no words are spoken about the release of Sn0wbreeze [...]
We’ve heard about 1TB-sized optical discs in the past, but TDK has now revealed a 1TB monster of its own at CEATEC. Unlike existing Blu-rays which use four recording layers at most, TDK’s creation features 16 layers on both sides of the disc, each capable of storing up to 32GB apiece. If you’re keeping track of the optical storage arms race, that’s seven more gigabytes per layer than Pioneer’s 400GB and 500GB disc achievements made back in 2008. TDK’s prototype also has the potential to leverage existing Blu-ray technologies, since it’s made from [...]
Adobe has announced it will restart its development work on it Packager for iPhone after Apple announced it was relaxing the App Store rules.
The Adobe Packager for iPhone tool has been made available via the Flash Professional CS5 package, and allowed developers to create applications easily for iOS devices.
However, Apple decided a few months ago that it didn’t want Flash to be used in the creation of apps, and rejected all those created using this tool.
Back on track
But now, all is well in the Adobe world, as the company has used its official blog to state ‘we will now resume [...]
If there’s a name I trust when it comes to writing implements, it’s Sharpie. Their newest creation is the Liquid Pencil, a smooth-writer that gives you a few days to erase your work before it becomes set in stone.
Think of it as the yin to the erasable pen’s yang. Sharpie claims that their new Liquid Pencil writes as smoothly as a pen, erases just like a pencil, and becomes permanent like a Sharpie marker after a few days.
Seems like it could be useful for those who are prone to self-correction but worry about Father Time getting the best of their penciled notes. Also, [...]
The first trailer for The Social Network was just a series of big portentous words. For the encore, a series of big portentous status updates! Everyone involved in the creation of Facebook sure could type fast.
I still don’t know what’s odder: that this is actually a movie, that David Fincher directed it, or that we’re already two trailers in and there is literally no mention yet of FarmVille.
No bones about it, $65 is ridiculously cheap for a laptop. I mean, $400 already feels cheap, and that’s what most netbooks go for these days. $65, though?
The company responsible for it is China’s Creation Tech, and the power the “CTEB7G” is packing under the hood definitely matches the price. It has a 7-inch, 800 by 600 pixel display, an unimpressive 33MHz 533MHz processor, a scant 128MB of RAM and a tiny 2GB worth of flash memory for storage. It does have Wi-Fi, surprisingly, as well as three USB ports and it runs Windows CE.
The bad news (we guess?) is that you won’t [...]
I love strange and unusual clocks, so this creation from Russian designer Viacheslav Slavinsky definitely strikes a chord. By replacing the disc stack with a single disc that has the numbers punched into it, it shows the time by illuminating the appropriate numbers with LED panels from behind. The real trick was creating a circuit that would strobe the panels at the exact time the correct numbers on the disc passed over the right positions.
In the video you can hear how the bearing seems to be straining a bit with the stenciled wheel’s lack of perfect balance, but one it gets going the effect [...]
