Tablet mode, says Sprint, works well for viewing videos and lists across a larger surface area.

DICE's, Johan Andersson posted a video and slides from their Frostbite 2 talk at SIGGRAPH'10. The video shows some of the tech we will most likely see in Battlefield 3.
A presentation by Per Einarsson from DICE and Sam Martin from Geomarics. The presentation focuses on the implementation and use of Enlighten, a middleware toolkit for computing real-time radiosity from Geomarics. It demonstrates how the technology is used by its integration into the Frostbite 2 game engine. It demonstrates how the workflow, content pipelines and run-time systems are greatly increased with the help of Enlighten to achieve real-time radiosity for use in video games.

Windows 7 SP1 Gaming Performance Analysis - tech
(hx) 08:03 PM EST - Jan,31 2011 - Post a comment / read (1)
TweakTown posted their Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Gaming Performance Analysis. Here's an excerpt:
While in our games we're not seeing much, the consistency of the performance gains make us more confident that the extra FPS is coming from Service Pack 1. It seems to be more reflected in areas where the detail isn't as intensive. With that said, though, that theory does go a little out the window under Aliens vs. Predator which is one of, if not our most intensive game here.

Outside of the performance bump, though, we didn't run into any problems when it came to our system being stable and that's the most important aspect of an update like this. It's hopeless to get a few extra FPS here and there to then be greeted with a system that becomes unstable.

For the most part, though, we can't really see any reason why you wouldn't choose to install Service Pack 1. It doesn't seem plagued with issues like other Service Pack updates and combined with the large line-up of fixes in it, this is one you should probably upgrade to.
Metered Internet in Canada - 25GB Cap - tech
(hx) 04:38 PM EST - Jan,31 2011 - Post a comment / read (11)
Metered Internet usage (also called 'Usage-Based Billing') is coming to Canada, and it's going to cost Internet users. Starting on March 1, Ontario TekSavvy members who subscribed to the 5Mbps plan have a new usage cap of 25GB, 'substantially down from the 200GB or unlimited deals TekSavvy was able to offer before the CRTC's decision to impose usage based billing,' the message added. By way of comparison, Comcast here in the United States has a 250GB data cap. Looks like lots of Canadians can kiss that kind of high ceiling goodbye. And going over will cost you: according to TekSavvy, the CRTC put data overage rates at CAN $1.90 per gigabyte for most of Canada, and $2.35 for the country's French-speaking region. Bottom line: no more unlimited buffet. TekSavvy users who bought the 'High Speed Internet Premium' plan at $31.95 now get 175GB less per month.

AMD's new line supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.0, and OpenCL
  • EVGA GTX 580 FTW Hydro Copper 2 Review - With higher frequencies and lower temperatures, EVGA gives enthusiasts and gamers a product that provides dominating performance in one neat package. Yes it's extravagant and expensive, but those willing to spend this much money on a video card will not be disappointed

We now rely on "external brains" (cell phones and computers) to communicate, remember, even live out secondary lives. But will these machines ultimately connect or conquer us? Case offers surprising insight into our cyborg selves. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.
  • Malaria caught on camera breaking and entering cell - The video captures the moment when a malaria parasite invades a human red blood cell - the first time the event has been caught in moving pictures.

  • AMD Embedded Technology Featured in Microsoft Surface 2.0 - AMD announced its contribution to Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface, a highly interactive, multi-touch computing platform that allows multiple users to collaboratively and simultaneously interact with content and each other. The AMD Athlon II X2 embedded processor, combined with AMD Radeon HD 6700M Series graphics, provides a strong foundation for Samsung SUR40 that delivers high performance and world-class graphics along with the reliability and low power required of this unique form factor.
  • Intel: Sandy Bridge doesn't have DirectX 11, but Ivy Bridge will - Intel's new 32nm Sandy Bridge processors may feature integrated graphics, but users will have to wait until Ivy Bridge, which will be manufactured using a 22nm process, if they want DirectX 11. Current Sandy Bridge chips only support DirectX 10.1.
  • GeForce GTX 595 has two GF110 - Nvidia's dual-chip Geforce GTX 595 packs two GF110 cores. This is the chip behind Geforce GTX 580 and it is not exactly the coolest chip around. We can also deny any plans for a GF104-based dual-card from Nvidia.
    The card has a dual-slot cooler with three fans on it, at least the one from EVGA does and we can expect that the card will end up quite fast.
  • Best Graphics Cards For The Money: January 2011 - A new year is upon us, complete with all of the price drops and availability shifts that accompany a holiday laced with frantic launches by AMD and Nvidia. With new high-end GPUs from both companies settling into place, the discrete market is exciting
  • Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB Hard Drive Tested - In terms of performance there is little to fault about this drive when we consider that it is intended as a storage device. Peaks of over 120MB/s on read and write ensure that speed is there when the user needs it and a 64MB cache is in line with other high end drives. It was also great to see that power use was no more than 6w when in use and is rated at 0.8w when at sleep/standby. In addition to this, these drives are very quiet with no noticeable clicking when in use.
  • PC Motion Controller - One of the companies behind the technology of Kinect, PrimeSense, has announced plans to team up with PC maker ASUS for a similar camera controller that's designed to hook up to your PC. In a nutshell, the Xtion is a PrimeSense 3D depth camera built exclusively for PC, but with an important twist -- it connects to a pair of ASUS Wavi boxes, which wirelessly streams its data between your TV and a Windows PC over the 5GHz band.
  • ASUS 2011 Tablet Line Up - The Eee Slate EP121 is loaded with a 12.1inch multi-touch screen and an Intel Core i5 processor that packs 2.66 GHz of processing power. A break from the other Android-driven products, it ships with Microsoft's Windows 7 Home Premium OS.
  • Archos 70 Internet tablet with Android, 250GB hard drive -While other tablets are typically being limited to, maybe, 64GB or so of storage, the Archos 70 goes much bigger with its 250GB hard drive. Event hough it has that much more storage, the tablet is able to stay quite thin (0.55-inches) and light (14 ounces). Aside from the 'unique over-molded PVD stainless steel structured' design, the Archos 70 also comes with Android 2.2 Froyo compatibility, Flash 10.1, HDMI output, tethering support, 720p HD video playback, 3D animated photo frame, Appslib, WiFi, capacitive touchscreen, and a built-in webcam. The Archos 70 Internet tablet is on sale now for $350.
  • Nvidia unveils 'Project Denver': an ARM-compatible CPU for desktops and servers - Huang described the Project Denver processor as a "fully custom" ARM-compatible CPU. Although Nvidia partnered with ARM and used ARM's ISA, we get the sense that the processor microarchiteture itself may be one of Nvidia's own making, with a higher end target in terms of performance (and presumably also power consumption) than existing ARM-compatible CPUs. We have almost no additional details on this CPU at present, but we can now see quite clearly the outlines of how Nvidia intends to use its chip design prowess to compete with Intel and AMD.
  • Motorized Ergonomic Keyboard - The Smartfish ErgoMotion Keyboard is the world's first keyboard that uses a unique motion-system to create the most comfortable keyboarding experience ever. ErgoMotion is the latest innovation in ergonomics redefining what true comfort should be.
  • Microsoft warns of Office-related malware - Microsoft's Malware Protection Center issued a warning this week that it has spotted malicious code on the Internet that can take advantage of a flaw in Word and infect computers after a user does nothing more than read an e-mail. The flaw was addressed in November in a fix issued on Patch Tuesday, but with malicious code now spotted in the wild, the protection center apparently wants to be sure the update wasn't overlooked.
  • Opera Previews Touch Based Browser for Tablets (video) - Whether it's checking email, managing social networks or surfing the net, Opera's specialized browser for tablets provides you with the smoothest tablet and netbook experience on the market.
  • Android Trojan with botnet capabilities - A new Trojan affecting Android devices has recently emerged in China. Dubbed “Geinimi” based on its first known incarnation, this Trojan can compromise a significant amount of personal data on a user's phone and send it to remote servers. The most sophisticated Android malware we've seen to date, Geinimi is also the first Android malware in the wild that displays botnet-like capabilities. Once the malware is installed on a user's phone, it has the potential to receive commands from a remote server that allow the owner of that server to control the phone.
  • Obama wants an Internet ID for all Americans - The Obama administration is planning on handing over power to the U.S. Commerce department in a new effort to increase security on the Internet. The idea is to create an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet, while the government says this is not a "National ID Card" it does appear to be very similar but restricted only to Internet activities.
  • Facebook is NOT Shutting Down March 15 - The fact that this absurd hoax spread so efficiently makes us wonder: Will people believe anything?

  • Lasers are the future of heads up displays (video) - Although Audi teased its plans to incorporate laser-based HUDs in future models and brought a rough demo to CES (right), Pioneer had a more polished unit on hand utilizing RGB laser light source technology to project an interactive map onto the windshield along with a helpful little robot that displays traffic cameras, text messages, incoming phone calls and other programmable information. Pioneer calls it the Network Vision Heads Up Display Concept, and the key word is 'Network.'

And Scrat's reunion with his cursed nut catapults him to places no prehistoric squirrel has gone before. It arrives in theaters on July 13th, 2012.
  • Red Band Trailer for 'The Mechanic' - The Mechanic was directed by British filmmaker Simon West, of memorable blockbusters like Con Air, The General's Daughter, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and When a Stranger Calls. The screenplay was written by first-time feature writer Karl Gajdusek, whose only other writing credit is for the TV show "Dead Like Me". This is a remake of The Mechanic from 1972 starring Charles Bronson and directed by Michael Winner.

Razer Switchblade: 7-inch pocket gaming concept - tech
(hx) 05:13 PM EST - Jan,06 2011 - Post a comment / read (3)
There has been a bit of a surprise device that has appeared at CES this year from a brand best known for its PC peripherals. Razer has decided to show off a concept gaming netbook called Switchblade - a 7-inch gaming tablet with a multi-touch screen and keys that change based on the game that's being played (the keyboard on the bottom is a full-on LCD , but covered with physical keys), and WiFi and 3G connectivity. At its heart, Razer reckons the Switchblade would have a new Intel Atom processor, along with mini HDMI, USB 3.0 and audio in/out ports.



For the moment the Razer Switchblade is just a concept netbook. It may never see the light of day, but Razer claim to have had a team working on this for two years so they clearly want to get it to market.

An analyst firm is making a bold statement, one that contradicts Activison CEO Eric Hirschberg's declaration that the company will not be charging for Call of Duty multiplayer in 2011. The firm, Wedbush Morgan, states that the announcement will come in the coming months.
"Activision remains a top pick, primarily due to the company's potential to create and monetize a second tier of multiplayer online gaming for its Call of Duty franchise," the analysts say. "We expect this to occur during the first quarter of 2011."

3D PC gaming without glasses? - tech
(hx) 01:17 PM EST - Jan,04 2011 - Post a comment / read (2)
Engadget got a chance to see PC laptop that's under development by Toshiba that promises to deliver 3D PC gaming without glasses. The laptop has two parallax 3D LCDs and also has a webcam that can, in theory, keep track of your eyeline when you move.
It's no secret that Toshiba's got a thing for glasses-free 3D displays and that it's been putting together 3D concept laptops based on the technology, but according to Toshiba's director of product marketing Phil Osako, the company could be ready to bring a 3D laptop sans spectacles to market by the end of the year. Sounds good to us, but it's a pretty ambitious claim, considering the demo unit Toshiba's bringing to CES, which we got to see a few weeks ago, is very rough around the edges. As you can see in the images below, it had a very large red, chiseled contraption strapped to its lid -- although, we do have to say it gives it a rather Iron Man-esq aesthetic. All that aside, the Qosmio laptop packs some pretty innovative 3D technologies -- not only does it have two parallax 3D LCD, but its webcam has a special eye-tracking feature that knows when you shift your position. The goal of that is to provide "dead-zone free stereoscopic 3D images" or better viewing angles, but we can't really say we experienced that -- while the 3D clips looked, well three-dee straight on, slightly tilting to the left or right threw off the effect and we were stuck watching some blurry content. Like we said, the concept is really just a concept at this point, but it will certainly be interesting to watch what Toshiba is able to improve and put out by the end of 2011.

One of the companies behind the technology of Kinect, PrimeSense, has announced plans to team up with PC maker ASUS for a similar camera controller that's designed to hook up to your PC. In a nutshell, the Xtion is a PrimeSense 3D depth camera built exclusively for PC, but with an important twist -- it connects to a pair of ASUS Wavi boxes, which wirelessly streams its data between your TV and a Windows PC over the 5GHz band.
PrimeSense, the leader in sensing and recognition technologies, and ASUS, a leading enterprise in the new digital era, announced today that PrimeSense Immersive Natural Interaction™ solutions will be embedded in WAVI Xtion, a next generation user interface device developed by ASUS to extend PC usage to the living room. WAVI Xtion is scheduled to be commercially available during Q2 2011 and released worldwide in phases.

The WAVI Xtion media center for the PC leverages ultra-wide band wireless link and PrimeSense 3D sensing solution to provide controller-free interaction experiences in the living room. Users can browse multimedia content, access the Internet and social networks, and enjoy full body interaction in a more user-friendly and natural living room experience.

In addition to WAVI Xtion, ASUS also adopts PrimeSense solutions to introduce the world's first PC-exclusive 3D sensing professional development solution, Xtion PRO, for software developers to easily create their own gesture-based applications and software. Xtion PRO is scheduled to be commercially available in February 2011. Developers will also have the chance to sell their applications on the upcoming Xtion online Store.

Elliptic Labs will reveal their Touchless Gesture User Interface technology at CES 2011. Elliptic Labs sprung forth from the signal processing environment at the University of Oslo and what they've come up with is an iPod dock which creates a 'touchless zone' that extends out about 1 foot in front and to the sides of the iPad screen. Users can then initiate a number of gestures, much like on Microsoft Kinect, to manipulate onscreen content:
