It sounds like it’s not just us that spend half our sweet time with lint-free cloth in hand. Researchers at MIT have developed a new type of glass that “virtually eliminates” reflections, and is also water-repellent. By using techniques from the semiconductor industry, conical nano-textures etched into the layered surface that give the wonder-glass its fog, glare and self-cleaning properties. The hope is that the technology will find its way into our many daily screens and even windows. It’s not all about gadget vanity though; solar panels lose efficiency over time through residual surface build up, and using the new glass could go some way to eliminate that issue. If they can just remember where they put the ultra-clear test sample that is.

After the Logitech Revue lost the CEO who spearheaded its progression into the marketplace and saw its price drop from $ 299 to $ 99, it’s probably not that surprising to hear the new company leader isn’t entirely enthusiastic about it. Guerrino De Luca told investors during the company’s earnings call back on October 29th that Logitech would not be building a successor to the Revue and it would be “on the bench” waiting for an opportunity to build peripherals to present itself. During an Analyst and Investor Day on the 9th, he was even more frank, crediting the launch of the Revue and the company’s issues in the EMEA region as costing it over $ 100 million in operating profit. While still calling Google TV a “great concept”, and believing that success of it or a descendant is “inevitable”, he admitted that a massive marketing push for a $ 300 box with “unfinished” software “cost the company dearly.”
Clearly, he’s working on getting the company back to basics working on high end accessories and remotes — there’s also a note about . Whether or not Google TV — or any other connected TV platform — hits it big, expect to see Logitech hawking popcorn in the stands rather than on the field with an IR blaster connected box no one asked for, and running a bunch of creepy ads. Check out both transcripts on Seeking Alpha for more gems — we’ll wait to hear how other Google TV partners react going forward.

Rechargeable batteries aren’t exactly headline news these days, but Sanyo seems so excited about their new XX line of NiMH AAs that it would be cruel of me not to post them.
The XX series stores 2500mAh per battery and maintains a smooth, stable voltage all the way down to the end of the charge. They’ll cost $ 25 for four.
You didn’t think that Acer wouldn’t be sharing some of its new tablets with its still-kicking Packard Bell subsidiary, did you? The latter has now debuted the Liberty Tab, its own spin on Acer’s Iconia Tab A500. As you might expect, however, there aren’t many differences beyond the name, with this one packing the same styling, 10-inch screen, Tegra 2 processor, dual cameras, and Honeycomb OS as its more widely-available counterpart. Launch details are still a bit iffy, but you can apparently expect this one to hit Europe sometime in June, with pricing to vary by country. Head on past the break for a hands-on video courtesy of Notebook Italia.

There are no surer signs of the apocalyptic onset of middle age than a preoccupation with puzzle-solving and an unhealthy interest in adverts and barcodes. And those just happen to be the three new features Google has added to version 1.3 of its Goggles software. The visual search application for Android is now intelligent enough to decipher tricky Sudoku puzzles (and thereby suck all the fun out of them), while its algorithms have also been tweaked to make barcode scanning “almost” instant. Popular printed ads will be recognized as well, taking you to a Google search on the relevant topic. US newspapers and magazines from August 2010 are being supported for now, but we can’t imagine the rest of the world should have to wait too long for this added convenience. Video of the new Goggles’ Sudoku skills after the break.
