Playing with Google Glass

Don’t know how many folks know, but I got a google glass recently and only now have had some time to start playing with it. There were a few challenges but I finally got Glass ’talking’ to my Windows 8.1 machine and can now replicate the glass display (that is a post for another time, but it did take me some hit and try to figure out what I was doing wrong)....

A great example of a MANET

I have been doing some research on MANETs and UAV’s and this TED talk is a great example of how a number of nodes operate in a MANET and implement some predetermined algorithm, which in this case is the Bond Theme Song. Worth watching. :)

Day traders paradise

Wow, this is cool , though a bit too much. I am not sure how many people use this - if its only one person, isn’t that just too much information for one of us to crunch?

Windows Phone 7

So you would have heard what all the buzz (not Google!) is about. Check out the feature video for Windows Phone 7. I have a Zune HD and the UI is very similar and I cannot wait for it! After a lot of disappointment with WinMo’s and becoming the joke in my friend/nerd/geek/co-worker circle for still have a WinMo phone, would love to see everyone’s faces when I get this. :)...

64 Core, 64 GB, need I ask more?

Cray (yep those guys are still alive and kicking – I know, I know I am as surprised as you). In any case these clever guys have released a “ personal super computer ” called CX1 which can have 64 Cores and address 64 GB of RAM and can run either Windows HPC 2008 Server or RHEL . Now, once I have stopped drooling, just need $30K (or so) to get this sweet sweet machine at home....

Dell Crystal LCD's

You remember me talking about holding off that Dell ? Well the very cool Crystal LCD's are here (and boy are they pricey)! For $1200 you get a 22" 1680 x 1050 display. I only see these on Dell’s US site and don’t see them on the UK site yet. Not sure how long before they show up here. I am surprised Dell did not get this out in time for Christmas....

HTC Touch

HTC just released a new phone here in the UK called HTC Touch . Not only is this very cool but is something you can touch, feel (and buy) today in the UK unlike the over-hyped iPhone . 😛 There are of course more pictures , not to mention the specs and videos .

Hold off on that Dell...

If you were in the market for a new laptop especially a Tablet then Dell is coming ! Not only that - they have some awesome ultra-thin Monitors which are only 0.5 inch thick and will support HD resolutions and allow you to daisychain multiple monitors. These were originally showcased the concept at the CES earlier in January. Better start saving up!

Windows Home Server

Thanks to my colleague, Ian, for pointing this one. After some initial rumors , Bill Gates has announced a new product called Windows Home Server which will automatically back up all the data on Vista and XP providing centralized storage and make it available on the Internet. Bill also promised that the Home Server will be easy to setup and the user won’t have to even worry about formatting, partitioning,installing, etc as the OS would do all that automatically....

Gadget to end all Gadgets

I saw the Carver One in an old Top Gear program and boy it sure is the gadget to end all gadgets! You can see some videos here and more pictures and wallpapers . Now, on Top Gear, if I heard it correctly the cost was £22.5K, but as per the UK dealer , if you include VAT, this costs £27,654. Also that is without any options and accessories! Either you can be kind to me and get me one or donate some moolah my way....

Getting a new Phone

<p> <img src="images/HTC_TyTN-2LO.jpg" alt="HTC TyTN"/> </p> I have finally taken the plunge and am going to switch over to a phone running Windows from my existing Symbian based Sony Ericsson P910i . The fact I cannot get emails on the phone is the deal breaker and also since I upgraded to Office 2007, I cannot sync the phone with Outlook. I just ordered the HTC TyTn and I should be getting it in a week or so....

Origami Project

The first time I heard of Microsoft’s Origami Project, was this morning in the papers ; the official site does not say much; but I was pointed to this leaked video , by a good friend who shall remain name less (don’t want to get him in trouble, now do I?). :) I have been told it runs some version of XP, but not sure on what exactly (embedded vs. regular), also with Vista round the corner, not sure if thats a good idea or not....

Want a kick-ass laptop - with 6.8ghz CPU and 1 Terabyte ram?

Thanks to Elia for pointing this out. If you are in the market for a new laptop but can wait, then this kick-ass machine can be out soon. Atom Chip corporation is getting ready for the CES 2006 show which is going to be held in January 2006 in Vegas. The computer should demonstrate how Quantum and Quantum-optical devices could operate in consumer electronics. Without proper benchmarking, it is hard to tell if the “AtomChip” 6....

New Laptop Hard Disk and Disk Enclosure

<p> <img src="" alt=""/> </p> With all the Virtual Machines I have (not all that many really), my external USB 40gb HDD is almost full and its time to buy another one which is a little bigger and faster. My criteria was a 100 gb at least and preferably a 7200 rpm in a 2.5" factor - which are quite rare these days, but it seems like I found the perfect fit for me....

Giving away XBOX 360 @ TechEd!

Believe it or not, but at TechEd Europe 2005, Microsoft is giving away an XBOX 360 as a lucky draw. All the attendees who submit feedback for each session are entered in the lucky draw and one winner from every session is being given a XBOX 360 - a full, what is it, 4 months before public launch?

Laptop MCE?

If you have not got an MCE yet and are thinking of a small factor (like a laptop), check out Toshiba’s new Qosimo’s - drool! I have seen the old version in the stores and they are an absolute dream, the screen is just awesome and now they have improved it!

Storage storage storage

Storage is one thing which is never enough, yes even that terabyte of space you have sitting at home! (You do have that much right?). Anyways, all is not lost. Check out the Silicon Image/Hitachi Storage demo which puts 2.5TB of storage in a tiny package, connected to the system by SATA 2.0 interfaces capable of 300MB/sec transfer rate. Or how about Sapphire Technologies Blizzard , which is a liquid metal cooled X850 XT using technology developed by Nanocooling....

Looking into a wirless home

PCMag has a very interesting look into a Wireless Home - could this be our home of the future? You can check out things from Buglar&rsquo;s beware , some place you can always be connected , the paranoids who should not read this, meter readers going the way of the milkman, a bluetooth hub , among others . I guess I should start saving to buy… :)
