Nokia certainly raised a few eyebrows back at MWC with its 808 PureView, which packs a 41-megapixel shooter; it even caught the ire of Olympus. Now Sony’s come out and said that frankly “the technology is not new, it's only what [Sony’s] cameras have done for about a year now."
Some people fall in love with fast cars or expensive women, but it'd be hard to blame an audiophile for swooning over this gorgeous DAC and doing something irrational to get it. Lock up your family heirlooms around the M2Tech Young DAC.
Our dear Prime Minister, David Cameron, loves his iPad apparently. So much so that a government control app has reportedly been developed for keeping an eye on the country from a tablet; it’s just not one that’ll allow him to control our Trident nuclear defence system, or do any other PM-specific duties he has to perform.
The iPad 2's camera was "really terrible," and you look like an idiot when using it. The latter factor is still firmly in place, but at least this time around Apple's tablet takes pretty decent photos. Still, don't do that.
Scientists are modelling artificial intelligence after baby brains. Why would they want to make computers similar to beings whose favourite pastimes are drooling and pooping? It makes perfect sense when you think about how malleable a baby's gray matter is.
Vodafone Throws Its Toys Out of the Pram Over Ofcom's Approval of Everything Everywhere's 4G-in-2012 Plan
Well that didn’t take long; Vodafone’s out complaining about Ofcom’s approval of Everything Everywhere’s push to trade 3G for 4G on the 1800MHz spectrum, giving us Brits LTE before Christmas. It said it’s not in the best interests of the consumer, but it sounds a lot more like it’s not in the best interests of Vodafone rather than us.
Our favourite jeans company, Naked and Famous, has made a pair of jeans out of the heaviest denim in the world. Two to three times the weight of your average high quality denim, these Naked and Famous jeans are made from 32oz selvedge denim and are so heavy and rigid, the jeans can stand on their own.
Today in grandiose space ambitions that would make even Richard Branson balk: a £40 billion, 1,000-mile long, 12-mile high, 20,000-miles-per-hour maglev train that starts on the ground and arrives in low Earth orbit. The minds behind the Startram project think it could reduce the cost per kilo for cargo from roughly £6,500 to just £32.
There's a never-ending stream of scientific explanations for obesity. The latest suggests that CO2 contributes to our weight gain and that as we pump more of it in to the atmosphere, the fatter we become. But can that really be the case?
Apple’s announced that it’ll open its stores across the UK at 8AM this Friday, March 16th, to sell the new iPad. If you’re after one anytime soon and don’t already have your pre-order down, now you know when you’ll have to be in the queue by; probably 8AM Thursday.
Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest songs ever recorded. Don't try to argue it, you can't. It's so good, you can play it at your wedding and your funeral. But it's not quite as good as when Apple's robosistant tries to take the lead.
Wouldn't it be great if your full-sized tablet could fit in your pocket? It would! You'd have that big-screened wonder with you everywhere. Cool, so to accomplish that, we're going to cut that tablet in half and leave a fat bezel in the middle. Wait, what?
Good news early Xperia S buyers: you can now buy and play a small handful of PSOne games courtesy of Sony’s PlayStation Store, which is now live and ready for your downloading pleasure.
Space conspiracy theorists have been going nuts over a video taken from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, saying that a dark sphere visible in the Sun’s corona must be a planet-sized UFO, a world-ending super weapon, or even a tiny black hole. It certainly looks like a large spherical object is sucking the plasma out of our Sun in this video, but according to NASA it’s nothing.
But not painlessly. As demonstrated by these Russian youths, all it takes is a large wooden cable spool of some sort, and a long incline. And a dearth of everything else.
