Portable Laptop Table; Takes Lazy To The Next Level

Labels: ,

The picture says it all. By using SkyMall's portable laptop table, you will be able to use your laptop while conveniantly lying down on your bed. I'd definitely want one of these; who said being lazy is a bad thing? This is great, but it's going for a retail price of $120 USD. It's now available so that you can relax on your bed while checking your Facebook and your Twitter. Below is a shot of the portable laptop table folded up, so that you can store it under your bed or something. And, oh wait, get this. You are also in charge of adjusting the height. I want one, seriously.

Piezoelectric Nanowires Use Blood Flow To Control Gadgets


Scientists think that piezoelectric nanowires could one day power our future devices with our own blood stream. By inserting one of these nanowires, it could power our devices, well, as long as we're living. It seems cool, but scientists want to keep you informed that it probably will not happen in the near future. I hope this happens before I die though, this would be such a cool thing to use. Although, I'd be scared to put something into my bloodstream. But, if it meant no more recharging my laptop and cell phone then I'm all up for it. Instead of going green, we will one day go red - or blue since we all eventually die.


Eidos Now Owned By Square Enix

Labels: , , , , ,

Square Enix has officially acquired Eidos. Eidos will now be a part of Square Enix - known for the Final Fantasy series - this includes games like: Tomb Raider, Hitman and Just Cause. All that's left is finalizing the paper work. I don't know why Square Enix picked up Eidos, but I guess it's a good move. I wouldn't know. I haven't really played any games by Eidos.

Fake Nokia N83 Phone

Labels: , , ,

Whatever happened to the Nokia N83? No one knows, but here's a fake one. Clearly, it has a full touchscreen display and Engadget claims that it looks about as thick as the Nokia N95, but I beg to differ. I think it's just about as thick as my Nokia N81 (ew!). It doesn't really sport the Symbian look at all, so that's a negative. It's specs are terrible: a 400 x 240 resolution, 0.3MP camera, and has just 2-3 hours of talk time. Its decent specs include: dual SIM card slots, Bluetooth, FM radio, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It's available now and another good thing is the price which is only $105 USD. I can't believe it only has a 0.3MP camera, what is this 2001?


LG Xenon Expected April 9 Through AT&T

Labels: , ,

Like the title says, the LG Xenon you see above is expected to be released on April 9 through AT&T. It will have Samsung's TouchWIZ UI which is suitable for its 2.8-inch touchscreen display that has a 480 x 240 resolution. In addition, it will also have a 3MP camera, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, a USB 2.0 slot, WiFi and will have 100MB of on-board storage but it has a microSD slot for up to 16GB of storage. This phone looks decent and I'd get it if it came out last year, that is. The next phone I get has to have a touchscreen with a slide-out keyboard, I just want a better camera. I'm excited for the Nokia N97, but I won't get it since it's going to be so expensive. I'm probably getting a new phone this August though, so I hope something I like comes out before then.

Leaked Apple MacBook Mini Could Be A Fake

Labels: , ,

According to a recent leak from a Russian magazine, this is the new Apple MacBook Mini. Sporting a 10.4-inch display with a 1,280 x 768 resolution, the Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics card, the Intel Atom Z740 (1.83GHz) processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 64GB SSD, Bluetooth, and WiFi. It will also come with 1 USB 2.0 slot, a Mini Display Port, and a Lithium-Ion 5100 mA battery. Beware that it could be a fake. A "top-notch" Apple product with only 1 USB 2.0 port? Seems bogus to me. Even though they could be fake, it is apparently going to be available sometime this year for $899 USD (according to the magazine). Still seems bogus to me; thank you Russians.

Labels: , , ,

The FCC has just approved the Gigabyte Booktop M1022 which was originally spotted at CeBIT. The Booktop M1022 has a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display, Bluetooth, WiFi, the Intel N270 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, and an integrated 1.3MP webcam. It also comes with optional WWAN, VGA output, an Ethernet port, an ExpressCard slot and a 4-in-1 multicard reader. Since the M1022 is a booktop it also comes with a dock, so that you can view it upright like an all-in-one computer. The price and release date has not been mentioned yet, but expect it soon.


Samsung N110 Now Available

Labels: , , , , , ,

The Samsung N110 netbook is now available for pre-orders. It boasts a 9.5-hour battery life, but Engadget points out that it has an 8-hour battery life in real-time usage. The N110 has a 10.1-inch display, Intel N270 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB HDD. It has a large [93%] keyboard and weighs only 2.8 pounds. It's going on retail for $441.99 at Buy.com and at CompSource it is retailing for $458 USD. For such a high price point, it'll be hard to choose this netbook over the Asus Eee PC 1000HE. But, it's all up to you. I mean, people do buy Macs, right?


Translating Gmail; Google China Music Search

Labels: , , ,

On Monday April 7, Google will be announcing something new as a "next step in Gmail's evolution." Apparently, it may not be all that exciting. Google Operating System is going out on a limb and taking a guess that it will be a new Gmail Labs feature that includes translating your Gmail e-mail messages. Too bad I don't need this for my e-mails. Useless.

Google China Music Search was launched last year by google, but just in China. Well, in case you were interested, it is now "publicly accessible worldwide and it has a new homepage." You can now download music off of the site if you live in China or use a proxy (pointed out by Google Operating System). Basically, you can't download music off of the site unless you live in China, so I'm wondering why they decided to release this worldwide... It doesn't make sense to me. Maybe they'll be updating it in a couple of days, so that anyone can download free music off of the site. But wait, wouldn't that be illegal. I'm clueless here.
