If I was to get an Android Tablet...this would be it:

Either that or a Samsung one because those screens are gorgeous.

Yeah it looks really good. I'm not sure if I go for it over something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16834214398 considering I don't have a laptop but I dunno. Remember you have to buy the dock separate $150.

Yeah, the extra-dock is definitely a cool addition, but it also has a nice extra battery on it. For me, though the real benefit of the tablet is of course the form factor. I have a laptop but carrying it around, even a small 13" one like my sister's is not as nice as a tablet I can easily whip out and just use fingers on it. Entering in forum posts like this on the tablet+recharging is also made a lot easier with the keyboard for those long periods I'm away from a computer.

I was at Barnes & Nobles today and playing around with the Nook Simply Touch. Was nice considering what it was. It runs android and when I got home I immediately checked if XDA had devs working on it. Of course they do lol. You can run lots of different applications on it but considering the screen, some make a lot more sense than others.

Its always been a good strategy from the manufacturing perspective to bring in new processes with a smaller chip on an existing design. Unfortunately it seems Nvidia wants to play it only semi-safe by bringing in a new design but using the smaller chip (which will reduce the costs of ironing out the bugs), and save the high end for later. AMD though....I'm not sure.

[...] but a research team at Columbia University has demonstrated that not only can vulnerable printers be hacked remotely to snag personal information like credit card and Social Security numbers - they could even be made to self destruct...literally.

 

The printers in question scan for new firmware through an automated process known as a remote firmware update, but they aren't discerning about what they download. By skipping a critical step for security known as digital signing, the calling card of safe, manufacturer-approved software, any able hacker could push malicious software onto a device by disguising it as a firmware update attached to a print request.

That 64 GB Prime + Dock will be mine.

 

NVIDIA sent along a Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710 with the Eee Pad Transformer Prime to test game controller compatibility. NVIDIA claims the Nintinendo Wiimote, wireless PS3, wired Xbox 360 and various other game controllers will work with Tegra 3 based devices courtesy of NVIDIA's own driver/compatibility work. The Logitech controller worked perfectly, all I had to do was put batteries in the device and plug the USB receiver into the Prime's dock; no other setup was necessary. Note that this same controller actually worked with the original Transformer as well, although there seemed to be some driver/configuration issues that caused unintended inputs there.

Latest next-gen video card rumors from what I understand. I'm following them since I'm in the market for a new card. Source is various threads here: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/forumd...144-Xtreme-News

 

AMD 7000 series

 

* Radeon HD 7970 launches on December 22. Top end card.

* Radeon HD 7950 launches on January 9. High-mid/low-top end card.

* 7950 and 7970 are the only ones based on the new Tahiti core / GCN architecture. The rest of the 7000 series will mostly be just 28 nm versions of the existing VLIW4/VLIW5 architecture we have now.

* People are throwing around "PRO" and "XT" naming conventions but I'm not sure what it applies to. Are the launching cards both getting pro? xt? one is pro and the other xt? I dunno. Maybe referring just to core codenames.

* The mid-to-low end of the range will launch in February.

 

Nvidia 600 series / 700 series? I don't understand the naming scheme

 

* GK100 core is almost 2x the speed of a single GTX 580 (so GTX 590 ish?). True Kepler architecture. Q2 2012 release. Top end card.

* GK104 core is the "midrange" part at roughly 75% the power of GK100. Q1 2012 release. Smaller die than GF114. Possibly a hybrid between Fermi and Kepler architecture.

* GK110 core will probably be the refresher later for the GK100 in late 2012, early 2013.

I was never a huge believer in eyefinity...until now.....oh my gawd...its BEAUTIFUL! This is something that pictures and videos cannot do it justice. It has to be experienced to be believed. The fact that almost your entire peripheral vision is covered by the game....its quite awe inspiring.

 

FYI I currently have 2xU2410 + U2412M as my center. I am RMA a U2410 due to some dither issues I have with the first gen revision.

 

*edit*

 

3x1 Portrait sucks because then it just looks like you have a big LCD TV with giant bezels. 3x1 Landscape is where Eyefinity really shines.

 

Pics or it didn't happen:

More quad rotor action. I always like these videos. I wish they were more autonomous but oh well, would probably be too big/bulky then.

source - http://mashable.com/2012/02/15/facebook-manhunt/

 

Police lineups in Germany have gone digital, with Hanover Police asking people to identify photofits of crime suspects on its Facebook page.

 

The police department has nabbed eight criminals since March 2011 when it started crowdsourcing suspects? photos via Facebook for its pilot manhunt called ?Fahndung via Facebook.? The success has prompted the rest of Germany?s law enforcement to consider using Facebook in the same way.

Interesting. There is a part of me that appreciates the idea of crowdsourcing.
