“It is designed as an ultra portable open source computer with gaming
controls, it is very small, around about the same size as a DS. It can
easily fit in your pocket. It is by far the most powerful handheld in
the world both in terms of raw CPU power and 3D graphics capability, it
will be able to handle things such as Firefox3 or Quake3 with ease.

“The Dome House is an igloo-shaped structure built from snap-together wall sections made of 100% expanded polystyrene foam (styrofoam). It might seem like an odd choice of material for a house, but the company lists a number of advantages that styrofoam has over traditional materials. Unlike wood and metal structures, for example, the styrofoam Dome House does not rust, rot or attract termites. It is also highly resistant to earthquakes and typhoons. In addition, the walls, which are treated with a flame retardant, emit no toxic fumes in a fire’…. <More>

“Imagine you could play video games – and immerse yourself in virtual worlds – with 3D graphics comparable to those found in blockbuster films like Transformers or WALL•E. And then imagine you could experience and control those graphics in real-time from any internet-enabled device, whether it be a desktop computer, set-top box or even iPhone.
Sound far-fetched? It doesn’t to Jules Urbach, founder and CEO of a Los Angeles-based company called OTOY, who has been working with microprocessor manufacturer AMD since 2006 to make the idea of server-side graphics processing a reality. If all goes as planned, 3D rendering will become just another computer task that jumps from the client to the cloud. Call it gaming as a service (GaaS) if you will. No more Xboxes, no more PlayStations, and no more souped-up PC towers. Just a monitor, some controls, and a way to receive and display frames generated by a powerful server farm”….<More>
There are many misconceptions about IPTV, but Geof Heydon, Director of Innovation and Market Development at Alcatel, is an expert in the IPTV future. In this interview he separates fact from fallacy in the IPTV and “multi-service network” world. For one thing, IPTV is delivered over a separate IP network that is not the Internet. It is not something you can do on the Web today (or even in the future).
“Unlike Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and soon Ultra WideBand and Wireless USB, Sony’s TransferJet technology isn’t proposed as a disruptive transmission force: it uses electric induction to transmit data rather than the radiation field antennas used by 802.11 Wi-Fi kit.
This means that TransferJet won’t interfere with or be degraded by any surrounding radio signals “…. <More Via Tech Radar>

“The X300 is a full-feature laptop, shrunken down to (just about) the Air’s diminutive size and a tad heavier at 3.4 pounds.The screen is the same 13.3 inches wide, though less bright than we’d like. Under the hood, a 1.2-GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB of RAM, and a 64-GB solid-state hard drive power it to respectable benchmarks (faster than a standard MacBook but slower than Dell’s XPS M1330). But the X300 really shines by offering every connectivity option you could need, including three USB ports, VGA output, ethernet and a DVD burner. And if that doesn’t cut it, every conceivable wireless radio is also inside the box, from Bluetooth and 802.11n to Verizon 3-G WWAN (plus GPS) and even WiMax”… <Via Wired>
