20% of Americans use the internet while driving

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2011

Texting while driving is already a serious problem, but now there’s another danger to watch out for. Drivers who use the internet on the phone while driving. According to a survey by US insurance company, State Farm, one in five Americans that own a smartphone admits to using the internet while driving.

One of the biggest reasons they log on to the internet is to check their social networks. Other reasons cited were looking for directions, reading email or just searching for topics that interest them. Most of the time this occurs during red lights or when drivers are caught in traffic jams. I guess that at least is good news.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on October 25th, 2010

iDuple of India recently announced that they are working on an Internet tablet with just a single app. A Web browser. There’s no hard drive, so a fast boot up should be no problem. It will remotely connect to a server that runs a virtual operating system.

Of course you can still run apps and perform various tasks, but you will need to remain connected to the server at all times. Not great if you are traveling in places where internet connectivity isn’t so heavy. Still, it’s an interesting take on a tablet.

Archos 32 Internet Tablet hits the FCC

Posted in Archos by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

Thanks to the FCC we now know what the Android-powered Archos 32 looks like. Looks like it is completely capacitive, with dedicated buttons and directional controls surrounding that 3.2-inch screen. It features built-in GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a kickstand along with Bluetooth and WiFi.

It does have a microphone, but there’s no mention of a camera in the user’s manual. That circle on the back could be the integrated speaker. One of the accessories planned include a 720p-capable DVR dock, but the unit requires a proprietary connector to transfer data and charge.

ViewQuest: The world’s smallest pocket WiFi radio

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2010

Dedicated WiFi radios haven’t really taken off in the U.S. Probably because it’s hard to find a decent, small, and pocketable WiFi radio. However, here’s one to consider. The new ViewQuest Pocket WiFi Radio claims to be the smallest portable WiFi internet radio in the world.

The device will cost you $131. But sadly for this gadget, for just $199 you could get an iPod Touch and install some internet radio apps, getting more bang for your buck. But the choice is yours of course.

Nintendo offers Internet Channel free of charge

Posted in Nintendo by Shane McGlaun on September 2nd, 2009

nintendointernetchannel-sbThe Nintendo Wii has an Internet connection, which allows players to compete against each other in games online. The Wi-Fi access also allows the user to surf the Internet assuming the own the Internet Channel. The fact that you had to pay for the ability to surf the web on the Wii always bothered me.

Nintendo has announced that it is now offering the Internet Channel free of charge. The channel previously cost users 500 Wii points to purchase. The Internet Channel can now be downloaded from the Wii Shop Channel.

Wi-Fi TV concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2009

Wi-Fi TV conceptForget the fact that this thing looks like some hopped up PSP wearing bright orange sunglasses. The extremely eye-catching WiFi Tv is basically a handheld internet television that is designed to access on-demand TV services that are available on the internet.

The idea is that TV shows and films can be streamed straight from the internet to the 6-inch touchscreen display. It boasts two slide-out speakers that supposedly provide a comfortable hand position, though we don’t see it. There’s even storage for Bluetooth headphones and a charging point.

Satechi INSP3 WiFi radio

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2009

Satechi INSP3 WiFi radioMaybe you’ve found that most internet radio designs are too traditional. Apparently Satechi thinks so too. Check out this odd design. Their INSP3 WiFi radio has a strange barrel shape, but forget looks. It can stream music from both internet stations and from any UPnP network device.

Either WiFi b/g or wired ethernet is used to get onto the network, and the INSP3 can be used without a PC or Mac turned on. The remote will navigate both internet radio and local streaming content, with twin 8W stereo speakers and both line-in/line-out connections for plugging in a PMP and headphones.

Next iPhone to get Internet speed boost

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

Apple teams up with Adobe for iPhone FlashThere have been some rumors about the upcoming third generation of the iPhone, but now those rumors are shifting toward a serious Internet boost in the next model. Apparently someone in the know has stated that the new iPhone’s connection will be “significantly faster” but does that refer to the WiFi or the cellular connection? Maybe both.

Some experts suspect that the tip refers to a boost in Internet speed, with the addition of speed-doubled 7.2Mbps 3G. Which make sense, since Infineon will be releasing a new 3G chip this year. Also, AT&T has been testing their 7.2Mbps 3G service for awhile and that should roll out this year as well.

IBM develops ZTIC USB stick for secure internet banking

Posted in IBM by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2009

IBM develops ZTIC USB stick for secure internet bankingZTIC (Zone Trusted Information Channel) is a USB stick designed for secure online banking, even if your computer is crawling with viruses. The stick was developed in Zurich by IBM and opens an SSL connection with the bank’s servers, keeping the data safely on its side (it has no storage of its own) and displaying the transaction details on the hardware.

Even if your connection is breached, the hacker will be exposed on the device’s display. Pricing and availability are still up in the air. IBM hopes to entice banks into buying it for online banking, which saves banks money on personnel costs but is constantly under siege by hackers.
