Verizon pastes iPhone map screen on Droid X ad

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

It’s a little embarrassing to be Verizon today after they have inadvertently embarrassed Motorola themselves through a holiday promo. An ad to promote the Droid X’s voice-guided Google Maps is using a digitally inserted screen cap of the Maps app from the iPhone instead, which not only runs on a rival platform to Android but was written by Apple itself. Oops.

It might not be such a big deal, but this puts Apple on a device that Motorola has repeatedly used in successful anti-iPhone ads. Accidents do happen, but this one should have been caught.

Motorola-Verizon tablet to have FiOS TV, 10 inch screen?

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

According to the Financial Times, Verizon and Motorola are teaming up on an Android tablet. One that will have dual cameras, Adobe Flash support and a ten-inch screen, plus mobile hotspot functionality. If that isn’t enough, how about access to pay TV?

Motorola does make a Verizon FiOS set-top box, so why not? And sources are telling the Times that the television tablet may be the same technology. We don’t have any info on processing power or price yet, but rumors say that we could see it as early as fall of this year. If that’s true, it won’t be a long wait.

iPad 2 already in development, with OLED screen?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2010

Looks like Apple may have version 2.0 of the iPad in the works already, with sources claiming that development has already begun. And if you believe the rumors, the screen is about to get an OLED makeover.

OLED displays are more vibrant than the LCD panels currently in the iPad, but so far are too expensive to use cost-effectively in anything larger than a mobile phone. However, analysts are predicting that OLED prices will drop eventually, but not until at least 2011. If the iPad 2.0 was to have an OLED screen and be released with Apple’s traditional update schedule, it’s unlikely the prices would drop in time.

Apple pulling all protective screen film products from stores

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

You can choose from a bunch of protective screen films at Apple’s online or retail stores, but probably not for much longer. iLounge is reporting that Apple will stop selling all protective screen film products starting in May.

That includes film-only products and cases that have a protective film built into them. Apple hasn’t given any reason and hasn’t even confirmed it yet, but ironically the most popular iPod “case” in the Apple Store right now is a protective film for the iPod touch. Go figure.

Nintendo officially announces large-screen DSi LL

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2009

Nintendo officially announces large-screen DSi LLThat was certainly quick wasn’t it? Just a few days after we heard word from Japan’s Nikkei newspaper that Nintendo was planning a new version of the DSi with a larger 4″ screen, Nintendo has gone and announced it. For Japan. Because as you know from the Black Wii situation, Americans come last as far as the big N is concerned.

This version of the DSi is called the Nintendo DSi LL and will be released in Japan on November 21 for ¥20,000 ($221).

Atari 2600 console mod with built in screen

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on August 13th, 2009

Atari 2600 console mod with built in screenSure we’ve seen all kinds of mods where they toss the Atari 2600′s case and hack them into a proper portable, but what if you want to keep the aesthetics of the console intact? You put a 5″ LCD screen and the joystick controls right on the console itself of course.

This one goes by the “Stella-Tubby v1.0″ moniker. And it can actually be yours since it’s on Ebay. It even runs on a pair 9V batteries so it is portable. Kind of. Think of it as an Atari tablet.

100-inch screen mounted flush in the ceiling

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2009

100-inch screen mounted flush in the ceilingMost kids have a 14 to 20 something inch TV in their room. This kid has a 98-inch screen installed in his ceiling. And we, like you, are jealous. Patti Deni (Our candidate for mom of the year) had it installed for her son. At it’s heart the setup is an NEC projector along with some Draper projection mirrors, which fills that huge StarGlas60 display with full HD images than can be viewed from almost any angle.

This install couldn’t have been easy. Word is they had to reframe and reinforce the ceiling to do it. Now that’s an awesome mom.

Stocco Maitre touch screen mirror for your iPodHere’s a cool concept for your bathroom mirror! Pretty girl not included. The Maitre mirror from Stocco of Italy comes with a touch screen console that includes a built in radio, clock and barometer, hell, even a mirror demister with a sensor.

It can control and playback audio on your iPod. But what’s the advantage to having these controls on a mirror? Well, you can watch yourself and practice for your American Idol audition. Plus, the mirror probably comes with speakers so you can sing in the shower.

Color-Screen Kindle is years away

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on May 29th, 2009

Kindle 2 gets Colorware makeoverEveryone wants an e-reader with a color screen. You live in color, so you want to see in color. It’s not like you bought the Kindle to watch old episodes of The Honeymooners or The Andy Griffith show. Not that you can watch shows, but you know what I mean. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said today that a color version of the Kindle is not imminent, but that “I know it’s multiple years. I don’t know how many years but it’s years.”

Obviously color e-ink isn’t ready for our use anytime soon, but it’s still disappointing hearing it from the Kindle’s daddy. It’s black-and-white for a while yet. Maybe someone will make some cool glasses that fool your eyes in the meantime.

Color e-paper screen might lead to a color Kindle

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2009

Color e-paper screen might lead to a color KindleOne of the Kindle’s drawbacks is that it has no color screen. That may soon change if Bridgestone has anything to say about it. This is the best attempt yet at a color e-paper screen. It’s still experimental, but this 13-inch color e-paper screen even accepts pen input. Better then that, the screen refresh rate is quick. Only 0.8 seconds.

Those are some nice advancements. But it isn’t ready for prime time just yet. Right now the panel is noticeably dim, with little contrast and we’re assuming that battery life leaves something to be desired. But color e-paper screens are getting closer to being enjoyed in our everyday lives.

Kyocera EOS phone is sexy, with a flexible OLED screen

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2009

Kyocera EOS phone is sexy, with a flexible OLED screenKyocera is gazing into the future of cell phones with this EOS phone. We like what we see. A whole lot. Even if this is but a dream. The flexible OLED display lets you fold it up like a wallet, which is pretty convenient. The shape-memory buttons will pop out from their flush position when you need them, like magic.

The most interesting aspect is its kinetic energy power. It works like a self-winding watch, so you always have juice, or so it would appear. The Kyocera EOS was created by industrial designer Susan McKinney, who likes to take long walks in the future, then show us what she saw.

Aware A-View netbook with detachable screen, only $150

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2009

Aware A-View netbook with detachable screen, only $150Details are a bit scarce here, but Taiwan’s Aware Electronics has apparently been the talk Global Sources trade show, introducing a new netbook with a nice surprise. It features a detachable screen. The only other info is that it will come have just 512MB of RAM, an 8GB SSD, and either Windows or Linux for an OS.

But the most interesting thing is the price. Apparently just $150. Which is about right for the markets they are after. Don’t expect it to show up here for that price though.
