Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on April 24th, 2008

Samsung Announces S3 and S2 PMPsLong gone are the days when a PMP was a simple rectangular device with not much thought to the looks of the device. Sure Apple still makes mostly rectangular MP3 players with its iPod line, but many other PMP makers are looking to more organic shapes and bright colors to woo buyers.

Samsung announced a pair of new PMPs called the S2 Pebble and the S3 Slim Portable Media Player. As you can guess from the Pebble designation with the S2 the PMP has a rounded pebble shape. It is only available in 1GB capacity and can be had in green, purple, red, black, and white colors. The Pebble lacks any display and has its controls on the back for a clean and uncluttered look. Supported file formats include MP3, WMA, and OGG.

Navigon 2100 GPS UnitI think GPS navigation devices are the best thing to happen to man in a long time. And by man, I really mean men, guys, dudes– you get the picture. Before GPS we had to use paper maps with our lady friends doing the map reading or do the unthinkable—stop and ask directions. Both of those previous scenarios just don’t sit well with most guys. Then along comes GPS and saves us from getting lost and hearing our ladies complain that they told us to take that left 20 miles ago.

The really good news is that more GPS makers are getting in on the action and the price of GPS units is coming down every day. Navigon says that its latest GPS devices provide high-end features at entry-level prices. It introduced two new models this week called the 2100 Max and the 2120 Max. The difference between the two devices is that the 2120 Max has maps of the U.S. and Canada and can only be bought in Canada for $329 CAD. The 2100 sells in the U.S. and only has U.S. maps on it for $299.

IBM introduces new ‘racetrack’ memory solution

Posted in Storage by Darrin Olson on April 13th, 2008

Stuart Parkin and colleagues at IBM introduce a new type of memory dubbed ‘racetrack’ memoryDr. Stuart Parkin and colleagues at IBM have recently published a paper in Science introducing a new type of storage technology dubbed ‘racetrack memory’.

The memory uses something called spintronics which uses the storage of bits generated by the magnetic spin of electrons rather than their charge to identify each as “on” or “off”. This new storage solution offers some advantages over the most popular current options. It’s faster than traditional hard disk drives and has a lower failure rate since there are no moving parts.

Segway introduces RMP hyperdirectional transport

Segway introduces RMP hyperdirectional transporter
By now I think we are all on board with the fact that the two-wheeled segway is ridiculous. Anyone riding one looks like they should be leaving a trail of drool in their wake. Well, Segway just redeemed themselves with this nice piece of work. The RMP “hyperdirectional” transporter was introduced at this year’s RoboBusiness, and can hold at least one super-size 400-pound human.

It has a nice tank type look. Seems like it can do it’s thing in just about in any direction too. Aside from that my friends, details are elusive. No release date either. But the term “fifty thousand dollars” should be enough to scare most of you off.


Xbox 360′s Wiimote accessory on the way

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2008

Xbox 360’s Wiimote accessory on the wayLook who’s getting into the Wii action. Microsoft’s been working on a Wiimote type controller and it’s due to come out later this year. They actually began development way back in Summer ’07. But the process has had it’s share of problems. According to MTV news and their exclusive source, this is what it looks like.

The familiar looking Wiimote has a speaker, microphone, four LED lights, A/B/X/Y face buttons, an analog stick and an underside trigger. The Nintendo Wiimote doesn’t have a Microphone and has a D-pad instead of an analog stick. Rare is the company working on it and they reportedly are trying to come up with a “unified interface and look for the controller.” The problems are between marketers and designers. The marketers basically want a replica of Nintendo’s Wiimote so game developers will want to port Wii games onto the 360. The designers want it more feature-rich and they have an interesting description “Halo, Gears and Forza in waggle form.”

Sprint Sierra Wireless Compas 597 USB ModemMany mobile pros and road warriors have used USB broadband modems before. Typically they are large, ugly devices that hang from your sleek notebook’s USB port like a giant tumor. A tumor you can’t treat so long as you want to have Internet access.

Sprint and Sierra Wireless announced the nation’s smallest USB broadband modem called the Compass 597 USB modem. How small is the modem you cry; how about 1.2” x 2.4” x 0.4” or about 70% smaller than the AirCard 595U. Those dimensions make the modem roughly the size of a typical flash drive.

Samsung WEP350I’ve mentioned before that I have an issue with people I see walking around chatting away on a Bluetooth headset when the headset really isn’t needed. In this day and age I don’t think anyone is impressed that you have a Bluetooth headset.

In some states the only way you can talk on your phone while driving is by using a Bluetooth headset so there is definitely a place for them. To meet this need Samsung has announced one of the thinnest Bluetooth headsets available called the WEP350.
