WikiReader now supports 15 languages

Posted in Handheld Entertainmnet by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2010

You might remember the Openmoko WikiReader from awhile back. The device holds over 3 million Wikipedia entries. Well, now it has just received an update to include 15 more languages.

The $99 international version comes with 8GB of internal memory, while the 4GB model comes in just English for $30 less. This is a pretty specialized gadget that might come in handy for info-junkies and few others. Most people already have a device that can access Wikipedia.

JVC’s DLA-SH7NL, a $15,000 projector

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2010

Looking to spend $15,000 on a new projector? Then check out JVC’s DLA-SH7NL projector. For that price you do get an amazing resolution of 4,096 × 2,400 and it will show off more than four times the detail found in full HD resolution. Pretty sweet, if you have the spare scratch. Which you don’t. And neither do I. Maybe there’s a payment plan.

How about a native contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and a 330W lamp capable of producing 5,000 lumens? It uses D-ILA (Digital Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) technology, allowing it to display two or even four displays in WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) and full HD resolution simultaneously.

Dell accidentally sells 140,000 monitors for $15 eachLooks like Dell has made a rather costly mistake in Taiwan. Apparently a promotional deal went online with the wrong price of $15 for some monitors. Within eight hours, 26000 customers had ordered 140000 monitors. Ouch!

The Taiwanese regulators are making Dell fulfill the order. It’s not the customer’s fault after all. The original price of the monitors was supposed to be about $150. After Dell changed the price, 471 complaints were filed and Dell will have to use the $15 price for clients who have ordered those monitors. Dell will try to apply a deep discount to some others.

70,000 HP laptop batteries recalledA few weeks ago HP recalled 70,000 laptop batteries, but they aren’t done yet. They are recalling another 15,000 batteries sold in China. There aren’t any reports of actual fire or flames this time, but the batteries are prone to overheating, and can pose a fire hazard.

At the moment, details about the models affected are scarce, but the batteries were used in laptops manufactured between late 2007 and early 2008, and include models sold under the HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario brands.

The Android Cupcake 1.5 update is now available. Just realize that custom ROMs will make it so that the G1 will not have the ability to receive the update notification.

Lucky for you it’s easy to remove those ROMs. Once that’s done, the official Cupcake update can be applied. With sprinkles on top.
