iriver W10 revealed on teaser site

iriver W10 revealed on teaser site – Filed under: Portable Audio, Portable Video We’d probably be more inclined to gripe about iriver stringing us along like this — five gadgets, five days, hardly any hard facts — if there wasn’t so much sexy to the devices and photographs the DAP manufacturer is tossing up every 24 hours or so. Today’s gadget is the iriver W10, a slim little touchscreen number we got to play with at CES, which seems to swipe some of the iPhone’s interface ideas for touchscreen VoIP dialing, while still sticking with those WPS (WiFi positioning system) and PDA / e-book / PMP features we heard about before. We wish we had more to tell you, like price or a release date, but two things are certain: iriver seems bent on swiping every gadget dollar we’ve ever stashed, and is singlehandedly keeping the hand modelling industry in business.

Ralph Lauren unveils “touch-sensitive window shopping” in London

At least this is practical, unlike the Mircosoft Touch Screen Table.
Ralph Lauren unveils "touch-sensitive window shopping" in London -

Filed under: ,


Alright, the whole touchscreen thing is getting a little out of hand. In the latest example of touch-frenzy, luxe clothier Ralph Lauren is converting a large window at its London flagship store into a giant touchscreen shopping experience as part of its Wimbledon marketing campaign. Much like Microsoft's Big-Ass Table, the 78-inch window is coated with touch-sensitive foil, and the image is beamed onto it by a hidden projector -- allowing users to purchase Ralph's latest duds and even take in a tennis lesson or two. Purchases are paid for via phone or email the next day -- so you can't explain away that $75 pink polo by saying you accidentally brushed the screen.

Underfunded NSA Suffers Brownouts

This is really funny, NSA employee's have problems trusting each other.
Underfunded NSA Suffers Brownouts - An anonymous reader writes "Almost ten years after the an internal report, and a year after a Baltimore sun story warned that the electrical system at the fort Meade NSA HQ couldn't keep up with the growing electricity demand ... the problem has got worse. The 'NSA has had to resort to partial, rolling brownouts at its computer farms and scheduled power outages and some offices are experiencing significant power disruptions'. NSA director Alexander testified to congress about this problem. It is suggested he wanted to add more than $800 million to the 07 budget. A recent public powerpoint presentation suggested 70% of of all intelligence spending goes to contractors. It also included a graph, without numbers, of this spending. It suggests that US intelligence spending is around $60 billion. An internal survey that showed NSA employees have problems trusting each other."

Foxconn Brings DirectX 10 To The Broke Masses

Foxconn Brings DirectX 10 To The Broke Masses -

foxconngeforce8400gs.jpg

So you’ve got your Windows Vista and you want to get a hold of a little bit of that DirectX 10 action, but your bummer of a video card is being a buzz kill? That sucks. You’re supposed to upgrade that, but who’s got that kind of scratch laying around? Those cards cost an arm and a leg and probably some other stuff. Sit down, dweeb, Foxconn’s got you set.

Today the silicon-card maker announced two new cards made for DirectX 10 based around the Nvidia GeForce 8400GS. And they both fall in the sub-$100 category. Sure, that could mean $99.99, but it’s still a good deal. The cards are pretty much the same, though one has 256MB RAM whilst the other has a wimpy 128MB.

We don’t have a lot of details, just that they exist and will hit the market soon. Their maxrez (that’s maximum resolution, n00b) is 2,560×1,600, which is totally respectable. The core clock is 450MHz with 850MHz on the memory clock. I don’t expect you to understand that, but it basically means they’re not the fastest around, but still plenty speedy for under a Benjamin. Word.
