Sony's New PSP GO


The newly announced Sony's PSP Go is a lighter, sleeker and cool looking version of it's portable game playing console. Unlike other PSPs (starting at $169) and portable rivals such as the Nintendo DS, which play both downloadable titles and disc-based games -- the $249 WiFi and Bluetooth-ready PSP Go plays only downloaded games, movies and music. "It allows people to get their content exclusively off of the PlayStation Network. People are very comfortable getting content digitally", Says Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing and the PlayStation Network for Sony Computer Entertainment America. PSP Go weighs around 6 ounces, the PSP Go is 40% lighter and 50% smaller than the original PSP. It contains a 16GB internal memory which can be expanded with memory stick/micro cards for additional storage. Users can download games wirelessly or via PC or the PlayStation 3, then transferred using a USB cable. I will be providing the tech spec's in the next post about this product.

A Mouse based on final fantasy Gunblade

By looking at the Mouse it seems Designer Andrey Chirkov is a big fan of Final Fantasy. His design concept takes a cue from the Final fantasy Gunblade. But to me as the gunblade looks tough and menacing enough, this Mouse would snap apart with a little force of a fat guy's finger playing a combat game.
Nice Design and looks though.

Microsoft's Pressure-Sensitive Keyboard : A Whole new way of typing


The pressure-sensitive keyboard Microsoft has cooking up promises to make your typing far more efficient,but it still is a prototype.

For example by using the keyboard we can change the font size by applying a variable pressure on the key and typing errors could be reduced by gauging the pressure applied to simultaneously pressed keys in order to determine intent. A varied pressure on the key would be making gaming experience much more interesting.

Microsoft will be showing off the technology at the User Interface Software and Technology conference taking place in Canada this October.At the conference, students will be given a sample keyboard and asked to compete with one another in an effort to find applications for the technology that are useful, well implemented or creative.

An Alaska based company called as gscreen introduced a dual screen laptop formerly called as SPACEBOOK. The PC is estimated to cost enthusiasts around $3,000 but not without concerns regarding the weight of the Spacebook and the pressure on the batteries to meet the energy demands of running two screens.Gordon Stewart, the founder of gscreen told the website that the product would be available around December 09 through amazon. "We designed this knowing that many may not need the extra screen at all times," Gordon told a website. Spacebook is thought to be the first of its kind with twin screens of equal size.

Microsoft slowly moving towards the release of windows 7


Microsoft isn't giving the exact date when they are going to release Windows 7 but they are just hoping that nothing much has changed between the beta version and the retail version they are going to put up. Subscribers to Microsoft's MSDN and TechNet developer programs will have access to the release candidate version starting Thursday, while the general public will have to wait until may 5. That said, users may not notice a huge difference between the two versions at first glance. "We're not adding a ton of things," said Corporate Vice President Mike Nash in an interview. "Most of the changes are fit-and-finish things."
The company didn't say how many people it hopes will try out the version, which is expected to be the last public test version before Microsoft declares Windows 7 soup. Nash did say he is hoping plenty of IT professionals use the product at work and home and also that any lingering partners make sure they have tested their products.
Among the changes from the beta release are a more final version of Internet Explorer 8 and the expansion of a media-sharing feature to allow unprotected videos and music to be accessed remotely over the Internet.
In addition to the RC itself, Microsoft is also making available a beta version of XP Mode, an add-on to Windows 7 that uses virtualization to run programs that run in XP but not in Windows Vista. Windows 7 is widely expected to be released in time for this year's holiday shopping season--a goal that one top executive said recently is "accomplishable" although Microsoft has stopped short of guaranteeing that.

Google users hit by mail blackout


Google has apologised for the outage that hit business and consumer users of its popular e-mail service.

The GMail service went offline at 0930 GMT and, Google claims, was unavailable to all for "approximately two and a half hours".

But anecdotal evidence suggests it was out of action for many users for about four hours - one of the longest downtimes ever suffered by Google.

More than 113 million people use Google mail worldwide, according to comScore.

In a statement posted on its official Google blog it said: "We're really sorry about this, and we did do everything to restore access as soon as we could.".

It said its engineers were still investigating the "root cause" of the problem.

"We know how important GMail is to our users so we take this very seriously," it added.

It said that those getting back into their e-mail may have to fill in a captcha form that asks people to decipher and re-type some scrambled letters before getting access to messages.

According to comScore, Google has the world's third most popular web mail service behind Hotmail with 283 million users and Yahoo with 274 million e-mail users.

Professional suite

More than a million business around the world use Google's professional suite of applications, including e-mail. Google itself relies on the service and press spokespeople for the firm were unable to e-mail journalists with statements regarding the problem.

Professional users are covered by a service level agreement that promises to be 99.9% operational in any calendar month.

The "premier edition" of the Apps service costs $50 (£34) per user for a year.

According to Google, its e-mail service suffered an average of 10 to 15 minutes of downtime per month in 2008.

The last outage of note was in August 2008 when users were unable to use Google Mail for "a couple of hours".

After the incident Todd Jackson, product manager for Google Mail, said in a blog post: "We're conducting a full review of what went wrong and moving quickly to update our internal systems and procedures accordingly."

On its support page for Google Mail, the firm said "A number of users have had difficulty accessing GMail today.

"The majority are now able to access their e-mail accounts again and we're hoping to have service restored for the remainder very soon."

The BlackBerry® STORM



What makes the Storm different from other Blackberry devices to come before it

Well, the lack of a physical qwerty keyboard is one thing, the other is that this is one of the first devices from RIM primarily marketed at non-business users. Unlike the recently released BOLD , the Storm has applications such as AOL and Yahoo Messenger, Facebook, Flickr, and Myspace available on the device out of the box.Before you jump to conclusions though, the Storm still retains business like functions of email attachment download (pdfs display, but not correctly), Microsoft Word To Go, and Excel To Go.
Weighing in at just under six ounces the Storm is a bit heavy in your pocket and doesn't come packed with a belt holster like it's cousin the Bold.Wrapping around the phone is a satin chrome bezel complemented with shiny chrome soft keys handling volume control, the 3.2 MP camera with flash, and voice dialing. The touchscreen has a generous 480x360 lines of resolution and below it you will find the usual Send, Menu, Back, and End keys. The top of the phone is adorned with a screen lock key on one side and a mute key on the other.

As a device, the Storm has given loyal BlackBerry users and new BlackBerry subscribers a touchscreen phone -- the defining trend in smartphones.

  • Camera (3.2 MP)

Windows 7 : the Next Vista ?



The next big version, the one that was supposed to fix everything that was wrong with Vista, is here (at least in pre-beta form), and I can now say -- with some confidence -- that Microsoft has once again dropped the ball.
Just as slow as Vista. In fact, Windows 7's performance is virtually identical to that of Vista SP1 on the same hardware. If you were unhappy with Vista's CPU-hogging, memory-sucking ways, Windows 7 will provide little relief. And don't start with the whole "it's still in beta" crap. This is NO beta – at least not at a kernel-mode level.
Just as consumer-focused as Vista. Home Groups. Media Sharing. Federated Search. All very cool. All very slick. And all very much irrelevant to the enterprise desktop customer (though the Search stuff might be useful in certain scenarios).
Just as confusing as Vista. Microsoft has once again moved stuff around in the UI. After baffling its loyal users by completely upending the XP UI, Microsoft has decided that it wasn't satisfied with the end result.
Overal Evaluation:
looks pretty needs work people need more time to tinker with it, and well if it is Vista with a name change I will advice not buy it.
