Wunderlist is among those apps that’s cherished by performance nerds, but not effectively understood outside of those circles. Part of the appeal came from its availability on almost every platform out there. To reach true OS agnosticism 6Wunderkinder, however, depend on HTML5– which makes porting an app easy, however has its own disadvantages, consisting of lackluster efficiency. (Just ask Mark Zuckerberg.) With the spruce up, Wunderlist 2, the task management platform now has truly native applications for Android, iOS, OS X and Windows to compliment its website. There are a few new features, including push notifications, suggestions and coming again jobs, but it’s the substantially smoother and speedier operation that’s the real story here. And, while the design is familiar, there are some tweaks to the UI that make it a lot more user friendly, specifically on mobile. Sadly, the move away from the beleaguered HTML5 base isn’t without its casualties. The company not provides a Linux client, though the readily available Chrome extension must help sooth the discomfort. To download it for yourself look into the source link.
HP has revealed their Windows 8 personal computer lineup, leading off with 23.6-inch Spectre One. It’s the very first all-in-one in the company’s premium Spectre line and a scant 11.5 millimeters thick– HP’s thinnest all-in-one to date. The computer additionally is without a touchscreen, a curious omission in light of finger-friendly Windows 8. HP told us that adding one would certainly add 4 to 5 millimeters to the general thickness, a downside they just weren’t prepared to accept.
You’ll still be able to get your multitouch-gesture fix, as HP has bundled a wi-fi touchpad with the PC. The touchpad is light, comfy and baked into the exact same silver shell as the computer. More significantly, it works: it tracked Windows 8′s multitouch gestures accurately, and was big …

Were you mostly on board with the N100, but wished Sammy would have held the MeeGo? Those of you in India or Russia are apparently in luck, as Notebook Italia has spotted its Windows-toting twin: the N102. Identical to the N100 in every other way, 10-inch netbook kicks the open source OS to the curb, opting instead for the pared down Windows 7 Starter Edition. Naturally, you’ll pay a little extra for the privilege, as the 8,930 Roubles (around $ 320) gizmo is about 50 bones more than its MeeGo-wielding doppelgänger. Or, you know, you could just buy the N100, bask in open-source goodness and then put that half-Benjamin toward the purchase of a real copy of Windows.
When it comes to gaming, the better the mouse, the better the gamer. Logitech today announced its next-gen G-series gaming mouse, the G300, and if this thing doesn’t give you a competitive edge, you need to spend more time practicing. With nine customizable controls, you may not have to use the keyboard at all, meaning all the control you could want rests nicely under the palm of your hand.
Because it’s ambidextrous, this is Logitech’s first mouse without thumb controls. Both rightys and leftys can play with the same level of control. The G300 mouse lets you customize up to three different player profiles, too. So let’s say you play Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 interchangeably. You can set the color of the mouse to red for one control customization, and green for another, so that you don’t start using Modern Warfare controls when you’re playing Bad Company. There are seven different color options.
The G300 touts a 2500-DPI optical sensor that tracks both slow and fast movements, and the mouse works well on a number of surfaces. I got to play around with the G300 a bit and felt that it truly is pretty comfortable in either hand. Plus, it comes with optional drag-and-drop software that not only lets you set up your G300 mouse, but lets you connect to other Logitech products like the G-series keyboards and headsets. From there you can set up macros to be shared across all the devices.
In terms of pricing and availability, the G300 will go for an MSRP of $ 39.99, and will be available across the U.S. and Europe in September.
Joining the revised city dweller is the matching Smart Ebike. The electrically assisted bicycle gives meat bags a choice of four levels of laziness as it propels them 60 miles between charges. At €2,900 (or around $ 4,000) it’s no bargain, but you didn’t think transportational color coordination came cheap, did you? Expect more on both come September when they are officially unveiled at IAA Frankfurt, but our friends at Autoblog Green have plenty of pics for your perusal at the source below.
When is a “Facebook phone” not a Facebook phone? When it’s in China. While this handset may look like an HTC Salsa at first glace, if you look a little closer you’ll notice that the familiar little blue button has been replaced with one for Sina’s Weibo social networking service. Lest you think this is just another KIRF, however, you can rest assured this is indeed the real deal, and a fairly big deal for HTC, considering that Weibo has around 150 million total users, and 50 million active monthly users. As for the phone itself, it’s remained mostly unchanged otherwise, with it packing an 800MHz processor and a 3.4-inch 480 x 320 display, along with Android 2.3.3 with Sense 2.1 on top. Head on past the break for a video, and hit the source link below for a closer look.
Want an adorable little Android cellbot to call your own, but aren’t quite ready to tackle Arduino code? Darrell Taylor’s got you covered with an audio-controlled, jousting cellbot: no muss, no fuss, no microcontroller. The Make project, called TRRSTAN, accepts commands via Google chat, web browser, or Wii remote piped through the headphone jack of your Android phone — the robot’s brain, of course. Tack on a few makeshift weapons procured at the local dollar store, and you’ve got a homemade warrior you can be proud of. Want one? Taylor has a ready-made kit available for just shy of $ 50, and offers a ‘fully assembled’ option for the extra-lazy robot enthusiast.
