Kogan Agora, California Legalizing Weed, PSP 2 Rumours, Flexible Touchscreen Display

Labels: , , , , , ,

Remember the Kogan Agora that i just finished talking about. Well, the new model will be dumping the QWERTY keypad for a 3.8-inch full touchscreen. It will still run on Android and may have the same hardware as the old model Kogan Agora (picture). "This is owing to the fact that the Android OS on which the device is based will get the on-screen keyboard with the cupcake update." Good news or bad news? I still wish it could, at least, have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but it looks like that won't be a possibility.

California looks like they want to legalize marijuana, for real. "Ammiano is trying to solve California's budget problem by legalizing marijuana." With a catch, of course, taxing it [marijuana] too. Ammiano goes on to mention that "California always takes the lead -- on gay marriage, the sanctuary movement, medical marijuana." Looks like all of that California Sticky Green (weed) you have, may be taxed soon.

You should all know about Sony's attempts to look for "new machine game testers" and here's where the rumours begin to spawn. First, i heard about the likes of a PSP-4000 and that it will have a sliding screen. And now, a PSP 2. This is not surprising, but it's also a possibility. The picture that you see is an "artist's PSP 2 concept" so don't jump to conclusions. The "mastermind" behind Earthworm Jim had a tweet this morning that said, "I hear Sony FINALLY has the PSP 2. And thank goodness, they've removed the stupid battery-sucking UMD disc drive. I'm excited!" He could've made this tweet solely based on the rumours, but could it be a possibility? Could this be the truth? Huh, Sony? Speak up and stop lying to your fans now. Tell us whether your PSP-4000 or PSP 2 is in the making. Maybe they will announce it at E3.

OLEDs move aside because we're talking about flexible touchscreens here. The world's first, in fact. "ASU's Flexible Display Center and military partners have developed the very first display with a flexible touchscreen." This sounds amazing, but they say that this technology probably won't be around for another 18 months. It will probably be longer than that, seeing how long it is taking for OLED to go mainstream. But still, it's good to look forward to.

What good is a flexible display if the body of the device isn't flexible? Where is hologram technology?

You obviously missed Sony's unveiling of the Sony Flex at, i believe, CES. Although, it's of course, still a concept.

There was a video on it which makes the device look much better, but they took it off Vimeo.

What I meant is a flexible computer, one that can be folded together and stored up one's anus to sneak across the boarder or to bring into Cuba.

If the new PSP does not have a second analogue stick...then I shall smite 100 cattles.
