We had to do a double take when we saw the $180 price on this 7-inch X10 touchscreen Tablet PC. Amid a sea of me-too slate PCs, this one makes lofty claims, including the most eyebrow-raising of all: the ability to play 1080p video over its HDMI port.
If this cheap 800×480 Wi-Fi and GPS-packing tablet can do what its maker says, it could be a game changer. Instead of spending $1000 on that bulky home theater PC we showed you yesterday, or $500 on the cheapest iPad, you could just plug this baby into your HDTV and watch a huge variety of Blu-ray-quality video formats, including H.264 and Matroska [...]
Look what Sony’s done with an OLED display. This 4.1-inch screen is so thin and flexible, it can wrap around a pencil-sized cylinder. Its 432 x 240 resolution still shines bright, albeit not quite perfectly, with some funky horizontal and vertical lines. Even so, it’s so much better than any others that came before, it represents a breakthrough.
We’ve seen rollable displays before, but never with such apparent contrast and color. And, unlike any previous attempts, this one can keep showing video even as it’s being rolled up.
Sony says the screen has a contrast ratio of [...]
11 days before the EVO 4G launches exclusively on Sprint, and hackers have already successfully rooted the phone. Video showing their finesse after the jump. Before you start rioting over how Grack got an EVO two weeks before the big launch, I best break the bad news to you—Google was dishing them out (for free) at the Google I/O event last week. Curses
The iPad is just too damn heavy. If you’ve already spent at least $500 on one, you might be reluctant to spend another cent on a stand that will relieve you of its 1.5-pound heft. With a nearly free coat hanger and some smart bending, you get a sturdy way to solve that problem.
Hey, this is not limited to iPads, either. Any tablet, picture frame or e-reader could be supported by this cheap easel. That is, if you don’t mind looking like a cheapskate. But it hardly shows when your gadget of choice sits on it, so maybe no one will be the wiser.
Here’s an easy way to record HD premium channels from your cable or satellite TV box onto a Mac. This $200 EyeTV HD can snag video via component outputs, letting you bypass copy protection. Then you can watch, fast forward, rewind, and save videos from your premium channels live on your Mac, just like a TiVo. Not that we’d recommend such a thing, because, you know, that would be illegal.
The thing can also do a really neat trick, grabbing video into two formats at once. That means in one swoop you can create two clips at once, with one formatted for the iPad and the other for the iPhone. [...]
Android 2.2 release was an epic slap on Apple’s face, which was announced at the Google I/O 2010, two days ago. The update has already started rolling out to the Nexus One users, hence the advantage of owning a “Google Phone”.
In all the excitement for Froyo, we totally skip out something what Google showed us at the Google I/O. In the videos where google shows what they have in store for Android next, they revealed (probably) Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) UI, which looks like a refresh from what we have in Froyo and previous versions.
An XDA-Developers member spotted this out and posted [...]
OmniVision has developed a 1/6-inch, native HD, 2 megapixel CMOS sensor capable of delivering full 1080p high definition video at 30 frames per second. Likely headed for webcams, notebooks and video conferencing technology later in the year, the tiny OV2720 sensor is also claimed to provide best-in-class low light sensitivity and is capable of removing image contamination.
The new native HD 2 megapixel OV2720 color CMOS sensor has a z-height of just 3.5mm (0.14 inch), one whole millimeter smaller than Samsung’s S5K5B3 HD CMOS sensor announced a little while back. It’s able [...]
We have covered about the various video downloader extensions for Google Chrome earlier and got a good response from users. However, most of those extensions were mostly based on Youtube and did not supported other popular video sharing sites, until i came across this one.

Once the [...]
