Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2010

You’ve heard the debates on Flash vs HTML5. Steve Jobs hates flash blah blah blah. Enough bickering. From the Google I/O keynote: HTML5 support will be more or less complete on all “modern” browsers, says Google.

I’m assuming that means IE will have to wait? Is this the beginning of the death of flash? How will it affect cute cat videos? Is Steve Jobs laughing right now? So many questions.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

Toshiba wants a slice of the tablet market just like everybody else, so it will be rolling out its own line of tablets to compete with the iPad. The company thinks the line will arrive sometime later this year, or early 2011 if that doesn’t work out.

Toshiba isn’t entirely new to the tablet market. They had previously rolled out the Journe Touch in Europe last year. No word on what OS Toshiba’s new tablets will run, but our guess would be windows. It’s also way too early to talk price.

Readius-like ereader launching in 2010We’ve been waiting for this one for awhile. Remember that bendable Readius ebook reader we showed you back in January of 2008 from Polymer Vision? Sadly for this bendy device it suffered delays which then turned into bankruptcy and dashed our hopes.

Now however it’s Wistron’s turn. According to Brian Chong, head of Wistron’s product planning, a similarly designed 5-to-6 inch device with a pull-out flexible e-paper display will launch in 2010. We can’t wait to see what the finished device includes.

2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike When a motorcycle has four wheels, is it even a motorcycle anymore? We have no idea. This beast has left us dazed and confused, but mostly we just can’t stop staring. This thing looks like it kicks some serious ass.

What you are looking at is the 2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike. Those wheels are 17-inchers and all four support a 350 cubic inch engine with 350 horsepower. It looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi flick.

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 6th, 2009

PS3 bringing 3D to all games in 2010In case you have been living under a rock, the big thing right now is 3D and the 3D bandwagon is bursting at the seams from so many people jumping on board. The PlayStation 3 is the latest on the 3D bandwagon, bringing a 3D mode to Sony’s console that will work with all existing games sometime in the next year.

To enjoy this feature, you will of course need a new TV that supports 3D. So it may be a while until this is really common. It’s one interesting direction that consoles are headed in, but what do you guys think of the whole 3D momentum? Is it over-hyped or is this really the future of gaming? We want to hear your thoughts.
