Of all of the promises Intel made today about the future of ultrabooks, none was quite as appealing—or at least, attention-getting—as this wonderfully odd concept that uses a keyboard-wide transparent trackpad that doubles as a window into your screen. Hello, Nikiski. You're a beautifully odd machine.
Withings new baby scale seems like a great idea for tracking babies weight. Plop the kid on the scale, and it wirelessly sends data to a Withings app, graphing it up just as prettily as your delightful little baby.
We recently reviewed—and rather liked—the Asus Transformer Prime. It was the best Android tablet out there. Oh, until Asus dropped its new higher-end Transformer Prime, complete with a 1080p screen and improved back panel. Joy!
SCB is an infuriatingly addictive game built around two core tenets. Firstly, it makes absolutely no concessions to the delicate sensibilities of modern gaming. One life, no continues, rack up as many points as you can. Secondly, it celebrates the glorious 8-bit era with chunky pixels, bright colours, and a phat chiptune soundtrack. Needless to say, we lost the better part of the weekend playing this sucker.
Ion Audio's new iCade peripherals look really cool. I've been playing with the iCade for months now and it's great in every sense except the game support. Until the awesome iMame retro arcade emulator came along, most of the games sucked.
Intel's Ultrabook Army Enlists Some Hardcore Features, Including Touch Displays and Siri-Like Voice Powers
The ultrabooks you've seen these last few months—and that, good lord, you're going to see in drove these next couple of days? They're plenty capable, sure. But they're pretenders. The real deal, the ultra ultrabooks? Those are still a few months away. And when they get here, they're going to be fast.
Portable wireless speakers are usually a pretty tame affair. While the Jambox is lovely to look at, it doesn't give you the impression that your ears are in for an audio assault. At least not like Klipsch's Stadium speaker.
Monster—a company once known for producing insanely nerdy speaker wire— changed headphones forever (for better or worse) with its fashionable, bass-heavy Beats by Dre line. Now that Monster's cash cow is HTC's cash cow, Monster is clearly on the hunt for new friends.
LG's Spectrum handset isn't anything noteworthy on paper. 1.5 GHz processor and Android 2.3. But. The 4.5-inch smartphone packs an HD display with a higher resolution than the iPhone 4S. And it's much bigger.
There's a lot of talk about OLED and 3D and Google and bezels and, and, and—enough! Let's get down to what matters. Beer takes too long to cool. Unless you buy one of LG's forthcoming refrigerators. SmartBeer.
At least one more company thinks you're going to like Google TV: LG's LMG860 and LMG620 not only pack the company's own "smart TV" software, but the more polished Android-y dashboard as well. That's two ways to channel surf smart.
In a case of Health and Safety gone mad, a former Spitfire pilot was banned from getting back into the cockpit of a stationary Spitfire held in a museum in Stoke-on-Trent.
LG has its own take on the future of HD beauty, and it certainly promises to be just that: 55 inches of 3D OLED glory slathered across a teensy-thin display.
There's a raft of new 3DTVs out from LG, and they've all got one thing in common: the acknowledgement that the third dimension has been pretty lame so far. Not lame? Depth control, passive glasses, and dual-view multiplayer gaming potential.
Correct us if we’re wrong, but it might well have been the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel who once leaned over to his wife, Nell Gwynne, and muttered, “I tell you what -- you can never have too many laptops”.
