Sony to Buy LCD Panels From Sharp

In response to the growing demand for LCD Televisions, sources claim that Sony plans to begin acquiring panels from Sharp. This is in addition to its joint venture with Samsung.

Sony aims to double LCD TV sales to about 20 million units in the business year starting April, and the volume of its panel procurement from Sharp will likely come to the equivalent of 3 to 5 million 40-inch-class panels in the following year, the Nikkei said.

Encryption Broken by Can of Air

You know it is hilarious and sad all at the same time. With all of the effort that is put into data encryption, to see it thwarted by something as simple as canned air just goes to show how far we still have to go.

When the chips were chilled using an inexpensive can of air, the data was frozen in place, permitting the researchers to easily read the keys — long strings of ones and zeros — out of the chip’s memory.

Desktop VR Displays using the Wii Remote

Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen.

This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space.

Xbox 360 First To Allow User Created Games

In a landmark announcement during the keynote address at the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC), Microsoft Corp. promised to soon allow Xbox LIVE members to play, rate and share community-created games.

As the first in the industry to pioneer high-speed online gaming and high-definition games, Xbox 360 once again broke new ground by introducing a new, open distribution service for games created by the community and soon playable by its 10 million Xbox LIVE members.

Community-created games on Xbox LIVE will quickly double the size of the Xbox 360 game library. By the end of 2008, Xbox 360 owners will have access to more than 1,000 games, making it the largest, most creatively diverse library across all next-generation platforms.

Girls Build More Websites Than Guys?

Please tell me that this little factoid is wrong. Are we really being out blogged / webmastered by girls? If there are so many girls doing this, how come we never see them? Maybe they are counting MySpace pages as “building” their own website.

Girls also eclipse boys when it comes to building or working on Web sites for other people and creating profiles on social networking sites (70 percent of girls 15 to 17 have one, versus 57 percent of boys 15 to 17). Video posting was the sole area in which boys outdid girls: boys are almost twice as likely as girls to post video files.

15 Biggest Tech Acquisitions Of The Decade

I know most of you think that $45 billion is a lot to offer for Yahoo, and technically it is, but it’s not the biggest offer we’ve seen in the last decade. Having said that, it will be a while before we see another AOL / Time Warner $180 billion blunder.

So Microsoft buying Yahoo for $44.6 billion is a big deal. No, it's a massive deal. Before Microsoft's share price dropped, it was to be the second-largest tech deal made in the past decade after AOL/Time Warner. Even more impressive? Like the AOL deal, this is a merger you can explain to your mom.

CRAY-1 Super Computer (1976) VS Sony PS3 (2006)

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) was Cray Research's first official customer in July 1977, paying US$8.86 million ($7.9 million plus $1 million for the disks).

Memory was 24-bit, for a maximum of 1 megaword (8 MB) of main memory.

Its CPU performance was 160 MIPS (80 MHz × 2 instructions), generally about 136 megaflops. However, the system could peak at 250 megaflops.

Hard Drive - None Installed.

The Cray weighed 5.5 tons including the freon refrigeration system. The machine and its power supplies consumed about 115,000W of power; cooling and storage likely more than doubled this figure.



The PlayStation 3 (officially marketed PLAYSTATION 3, commonly abbreviated PS3) is the third home video game console produced by Sony Computer Entertainment and successor to the PlayStation 2 as part of the PlayStation series. The PlayStation 3 was first released on November 11, 2006, in Japan and sold for $599/€599.

The PS3 cpu is based off PowerPC-base Core @3.2GHz and 1.8 TFLOPS floating point performance.

Memory: 512MB

Storage: 60GB

The PS3 measures 12.8 inches wide by 3.8 inches high by 10.8 inches long and weighs approximately 8 lbs. The PS3 consumes 380W of power.



One PS3 would be the equivalent of around 40 Cray-1 supercomputers. Sony definitely has beat the Cray on price putting 8.86 Million dollars back into your wallet and adding the convenience of being able to fit a PS3 into a standard home is also a bonus.

The thought of $15,000 dollar monthly power bill will really get you thinking you should have bought that PS3. It truly is amazing that each one of us has the capability of owning a device that is now 40 times faster than a 10 million dollar super computer. Happy folding.

Best Buy Sued For $54M Over Lost Laptop

So Best Buy loses some lady’s laptop. The lady asks for $2100. Best Buy says no. Lady takes the next logical step and sues for $54 million.

"It shouldn't take a $54 million lawsuit to motivate Best Buy to address these issues," she said. Her initial offer to settle for $2,100 has been withdrawn because her expenses have risen, including time spent filing a police report and consulting with lawyers about her case, she said. Concerns about identity theft also add to her potential damages, she said.

Caveat emptor -- back-up your files regularly on media separate from your laptop. Even if Best Buy hadn't lost it, Campbell's laptop could have been lost or destroyed in any number of other ways.

That said, Best Buy didn't do the right thing, and them compounded the problem by giving Campbell the run-around. She was right to go after them.

Still, what does Best Buy's "fine print" say about lost or damages equipment while in their care. I'm sure they have a disclaimer somewhere in their "legalese."

Best Buy does owe this woman, however she does have to take some responibility for her own ignorance AKA stupidity. BACK UP YOUR DATA!

Yahoo's rebuff raises the stakes in a battle involving two of the world's most prominent technology companies. Many analysts expect Microsoft to raise its offer by $5 billion to $12 billion to entice Yahoo to sell. Yahoo is believed to want a bid of at least $56 billion, or about $40 per share.

The $6 Million Home Theater

I thought having a 13ft screen and 1080p projector made me cool. After seeing this $6 million set up, I am truly humbled. Actually, I can’t think of anyone that wouldn’t be impressed by this set up. Wow. Hit the link below for all the pictures, here’s a couple to get you started:

When it comes to home theaters, I thought I'd seen it all. But nothing's come close to this. First, I'm going to try to describe the sheer magnitude of Jeremy Kipnis' theater. His Stewart Snowmatte laboratory-grade screen is the biggest I've ever seen in a home, and in the back of the theater, there's a Sony ultra-high-resolution (4,096-by-2,160) SRX-S110 digital projector. I'm looking everywhere, jotting down questions, and Kipnis sounds almost giddy talking about his theater's capabilities.

Desktop Laptop Computer HDTV USB Receiver

This is a USB portable device that plugs into a laptop or desktop computer and allows you to receive and record local high-definition television content because it uses the same ATSC tuner found in full-sized HDTVs.

Simple to use, the receiver plugs into a USB port on a laptop or any other desktop computer, and an included magnetic HD antenna plugs into the receiver with a 79" cord, allowing you to place the antenna in the best location for reception.

It also includes an adapter with composite and S-video input cables that plugs into the receiver, allowing you to pull an HD signal into the receiver, which converts it to the HD 1080i standard, and re-direct them to an HD-ready TV that does not have its own ATSC tuner.

Gibson Touch Sensitive Teaching Guitar

Designed in conjunction with legendary guitar maker Gibson (even mimicking the classic Gibson SG body design), this touch-sensitive guitar uses lights to prompt players when to chord frets and strum, making it the easiest way for children to learn to play along with music.

Players simply choose one of the 12 pre-loaded songs (including six rock classics such as Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water and The Troggs' Wild Thing) and place their fingers on the frets as they light up; brushing the strum bar plays the note. In "learn" mode, players practice songs phrase by phrase, being prompted and guided by the guitar when they err.

Other sensors in the guitar encourage creative play--the sp eed of the player's stroke on the strum bar changes the volume and tone of the note, while lifting or dipping the neck "bends" the pitch like a tremolo bar. The guitar also accommodates other special techniques like palming, hammer-ons, and pull-offs. It can be set to render notes in four different styles: rock, punk, indie, or metal.

Sony PS3 Controller Inspired Bling Edition

Even the jewelers at Tiffany's would be impressed by the mix of precious stones and metals thrown into this PS2 controller neck pendant. The ridiculously geeky piece is constructed from 18k white gold, with 68.34ct of black diamonds lining the controller's surface.

We were not so sure you could get 68.34ct of diamonds all in one place without owning a bank, but apparently we were wrong.

Beatles' Renowned Guru Dies Maharishi Mahesh

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a guru to the Beatles who introduced the West to transcendental meditation, died Tuesday at his home in the Dutch town of Vlodrop, a spokesman said. He was thought to be 91 years old.

"He died peacefully at about 7 p.m.," said Bob Roth, a spokesman for the Transcendental Meditation movement that the Maharishi founded. He said his death appeared to be due to "natural causes, his age."

eBay To Ban Negative Seller Views

At first I thought I was reading this wrong but, as it turns out, I read it right...eBay is planning on banning negative comments about buyers. You’ll still be able to leave negative feedback on sellers though. Can anyone explain to me how this is good policy?

EBay said problems were occurring, and slowing down trade, when buyers left negative comments about sellers who then retaliated with their own views. From May, those selling on eBay will not be able to leave unfavourable or neutral messages about buyers.

Dutch Unveil Robot to Fill Car Gas Tank

Motorists nostalgic for the time they could sit tight while attendants braved windswept garage forecourts to fill their tanks may yet see those heady days return -- compliments of a Dutch robot.

Dutch inventors unveiled on Monday a 75,000 euro ($111,100) car-fuelling robot they say is the first of its kind, working by registering the car on arrival at the filling station and matching it to a database of fuel cap designs and fuel types.

X-43A Mach 10 NASA ScramJet

That's the idea behind a different propulsion system called "scramjet," or Supersonic Combustion Ramjet: The oxygen needed by the engine to combust is taken from the atmosphere passing through the vehicle, instead of from a tank onboard. The craft becomes smaller, lighter and faster.

How fast? Researchers predict scramjet speeds could reach 15 times the speed of sound. An 18-hour trip to Tokyo from New York City becomes a 2-hour flight.

It's a Cheeseburger in a Can

I honestly can't figure out how I feel about this: is it the greatest achievement of mankind thus far, or is it an abomination of foodstuffs that deserves to be hucked back into the gaping maw of whatever food processing plant it was spewed from? I just don't know what to think anymore. Would you eat a cheeseburger in a can? Keep in mind that it'll look nowhere near as delicious as the example above when you pull it out of the can.
