Nikon just made the cheap DSLR market interesting again: Their first DSLR with 1080p video, the D3100, is the first DSLR with real, constant autofocus powers during video recording. And it’s only 700 bucks.
Even though Nikon was first to the party with the D90, Canon has effectively staked out DSLR video as its private fiefdom, delivering camera after camera with superior video prowess, carving out a new market—not unexpected, since Canon makes video cameras, and Nikon, well, hasn’t. The D3100 catches up on what’s merely expected video-wise, with 1080p recording at 24fps [...]
Phillip Shoemaker, the director of application’s technology at Apple has a side business. He is one of the main decision makers when it comes to accepting or rejecting apps for the App store. What’s his side business you ask? According to Wired, he sells fart and urination apps.
Apple has been criticized several times for its unbendable and sometimes unreasonable rules for rejecting apps. Only recently Apple pulled an app from the store that let you use volume buttons to take pictures. Even though there is no policy against fart or urination apps, as hundreds of them exist on the App [...]
We have heard this one before and now according to a Chinese Economic Daily News financial newspaper, Apple is ready to launch a smaller version of iPad by the end of this year around Christmas. The report mentions the size of new smaller iPad will be 7-inch and according to previous rumors, Apple is also working on even smaller 5.6 inch iPad.
The same newspaper had reported about the launch of original iPad and they were one of the first ones to report this. That rumor proved to be true so we can think this rumor may also prove to be correct too. Last week, Taiwan’s DigiTimes has also reported [...]
Computerworld is reporting that the second iteration of the WiMax 4G technology — known as WiMax 2 or 802.16m — is ready to be finalized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) this November. After approval, the WiMax 2 Forum hopes to see WiMax 2 handsets in the marketplace by the end of 2012. Mohammad Shakouri, the VP of the WiMax Forum, has said that the goal is “to deliver average downlink speeds of more than 100Mbps to users.” The newer, faster WiMax will not saturate areas any better than its predecessor, although it will offer backwards compatibility [...]
Samsung’s sub-$1000 3DTV may have already broken cover, but the real star today is the UN65C8000: a 65-inch 3D LED TV that’s the largest in the world. Talk about immersive.
The UN65C8000 features 240Hz refresh, Samsung’s 3D processor, and built-in Wi-Fi to access Samsung Apps like Hulu and ESPN. Of course, with great size comes great expense—you’ll have to drop $6,000 to bring one of these home. And while it’s nice that Samsung’s throwing in two pairs of 3D glasses and an exclusive How To Train Your Dragon 3D BD as part of their 3D starter kit, something [...]
I got my hands today on the Samsung Galaxy S and the iPhone 4, and honestly, when comparing the display screens of both these phones, I was really confused on which to conclude with is the best!
iPhone 4 features one of the most advanced display screens with the Retina Display technology (SLCD), while on the other hand Samsung Galaxy S features a Super AMOLED display screen. But when holding both of them, you hardly make out which one should be crowned as the best among these two because both of them have the best, vibrant touchscreen I have ever seen!
Have you tried both of these devices [...]
According to Toshiba, the new wipe technology on their self-encrypting hard drives will destroy any data in them when you remove the device or power it off completely. Sounds a bit nuts, but it makes sense.
Instead of over-writing the data—which takes hours—or using a physical method—that requires time and effort—the new drives will automatically invalidate the data in just a few seconds by erasing its HDD security key when the power is completely off. This means that any confidential documents stored in the hard drive—like an office printer—will be safe in case someone extracts [...]
Apple just bought the rights to all the patents from a company called Liquidmetal Technologies. Looking at their video demonstration, I don’t know what the hell they are going to do with it, but it must be something wickedly mindblowing:
Basically, this is a better metal with the best qualities of plastic. It’s also kind of crazy.
The Apple deal was disclosed in an August 5 SEC filing, giving the Cupertino company “a perpetual, worldwide, fully-paid, exclusive license” for all their technology:
On August 5, 2010, Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation [...]
With Microsoft’s Kinect ready to make its appearance for Christmas, T3 has been flown out to the US to take a lengthy look at how the technology works.
Three in-depth features from the gadget maestros take in the sensor, the motor and the way the voice recognition works.
“[The motion sensor] is made of two main parts: a projector and an IR VGA camera. The former bounces out a laser across the entire field of play, which the camera picks up to separate you from your sofa on what’s called a ‘depth field’,” explains T3.
“It’s essentially [...]
