    If you are the type that is in love with super slim TV's and have a thing for contrast ratios with 7 digits, a 100%+ color gamut, and Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions, the new same TV's we saw at CES 2008 appear to now be "production ready", meaning we could finally start to see some honest to goodness OLED displays that are actually large enough to use as TV's! How much will these svelt 8.9 milimeter TV's set you back? I'm sure when we learn the price, the sound of your wallet puking will be...

    While the actual usefullness of 6+ megapixels in a tiny, less than optimumly sized CMOS censor is debatable, Samsung is eschewing all naysayers and doubters with the announcement of their M8910 Pixon12. This alphabet/number soup phone's main claim to fame is first and foremost that 12 megapixel's worth of digitized life sitting right smack dab in the middle of the phone's back side. Secondly, Samsung is touting the 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen display's (claimed) 10,000 : 1 contrast ratio! T...
  • Hitatchi brining LCD back to relevance by way of more pixels [Eye Strain]

    While eye candy lovers drool over such technologies as FED and SED (which are sadly pretty much dead) and OLED still requires a heft toll be taken on your wallet, LCD's still enjoy supreme reign in the mobile display world. Hitatchi realizes that 480 x 360 just doesn't pack the "WOW" factor that it did even just 1-2 years ago. Hitatchi however still sees a market for higher quality, higher resolution LCD screens for mobile devices. Just how much better will Hitatchi's mini-LCD's be? (m...
  • AOL is like a cockroach, immune to death

    I'll start off by saying I hate AOL software. Besides looking old and outdated, it runs like it's outdate - slow, clunky, and extremely invasive. Not to mention, no one should need a "program" to access the internet anyway. A simple browser is all that is needed. I say this as I just finished spending 25 minutes removing AOL's ability to auto-start after a system restart. For a company that isn't doing so hot, one would think they would be a tad more user friendly and not create a program...

    Those of you who like "combo gadgets", that is, gadgets with multiple uses or functions love the added functionality of having to carry around less gadgets as the multi-gadget is your sort of "one stop shop". If you were excited I'd be telling you about a multi-function gadget, you'll be disappointed. Sorry. The S.MP3 Player is an MP3 player (obviously) with a unique design. Created by French designer Nicolas Cinguion, the player appears as if you could use the device as a yo-yo and even c...

    If you have an older car, chances are at some point or another you have seen that ever dreadful "Check Enging" light liluminate your dashboard causing grief and worry to pour over you at the most inoportune moments. Perhaps even worse than the grief is the feeling of helplessness as that little check engine light could mean your gas cap is loose. Or, it could mean the next nuclear blast is about to commense right underneath your own hood. Either way, the cryptic and pain in the a** check en...
