The name says everything. Late last year, Intel gently introduced the Following Device of Computing (NUC): a miniature, barebones desktop PC that stands for a modern take on the conventional beige box. The NUC sits a mere 2 inches tall and comes situateded within a 4-inch square body. It also retails for just timid of $ 300. Do not let its diminutive size or price fool you, however. The Core i3 system is quick, steady and more than efficient in dealing with day-to-day computing tasks. Yes, it’s a hell of a departure from the loud monstrosities we starved after simply a few years back. And it’s a great deal quieter, too.
Before you get too thrilled, though, let’s temper that enthusiasm simply a bit. Just like any bare-bones kit, you’ll require to install your own memory, storage space, cordless networking components and running system. In shorts, unless you want to obtain your hands a bit dirty, the NUC isn’t really for you. Then there’s the question of its price, which becomes a lot less tempting once you consider the shopping list of required components. So, is the NUC deserving of its “Following Device of Computing” title? Let’s explore this question together.

Archos must be in a benevolent mood: it first posted a version of its Video Player app for competing Android devices, and now it’s selling the keyboard technology of its Gen10 XS tablets to those using an entirely different platform. Its Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad offers a familiar 0.2-inch thick, Smart Cover-like peripheral for full-size Apple tablets from the iPad 2 through to the latest generation. The design naturally switches over to iOS-native keyboard shortcuts, and there’s even an iPad-only advantage in the adjustable kickstand. Americans can buy the keyboard in March for $ 79; believing that Archos would downplay its core business will remain optional.

Steam’s Big Picture mode, which aims to carve Valve’s gaming platform a presence in your living room, today moved out of beta and is ready for general public consumption. When enabled, the feature optimizes Steam’s on-screen presentation for an HDTV rather than your typical PC monitor. In doing so, Valve is making a big play at both the casual gaming sector and console owners that may be growing bored with aging hardware from Microsoft and Sony. Now users can assemble so-called Steamboxes that dramatically outpace the current crop of consoles, with the experience they ultimately take away limited only by their budget.
Valve recognizes the controller’s importance in the living room
One thing Valve doesn’t want you to replace any time…

Talk about convergence, eh? The Volt Buckle is described on its indiegogo fundraising web page as “ The globe ’ s first and just wearable mobile gadget wall charger. ” And as a person that has traveled around the Net a time or two, I can easily vouch for that claim. Never ever in all of my Net days have I seen such a gadget. I wish it.
When worn, the Volt Buckle resembles any sort of ol ’ belt buckle. If funded the tool will certainly ship with black and brownish belts with silver buckles, or for an added $ 15, an anodized black or bronze buckle. However when the need arises, just take off the belt (that can be problem often) and charge a phone with the USB interface. The belt buckle portion also acts as a sort of stand when charging.
The creator explains that men, not being a gender that frequently carriers a carryall, just have pockets to store products and thus frequently leave things at house — like a phone charger. But with the Volt Buckle a charger can easily always be convenient.
The group is aiming to raise $ 60,000 to begin the Volt Buckle ’ s production. Pledge $ 20 and receive a natural leather belt minus the buckle. Step it up to $ 50 and obtain a silver Volt Buckle with the anodized model available with a $ 75 pledge. A bit expensive, yes, however you ’ ll be the life of any sort of party. Girls dig guys with convergence machines around their loins.

It was only a couple of months ago that we first crossed paths with Sony’s Xperia Neo L, and now the Ice Cream Sandwich handset is back with a vengeance — at least in terms of exposure. As you may know, details were revealed in abundance (read: 1GHz Snapdragon S2 CPU, 512MB of RAM) during our first MT25i encounter, but thanks to Taiwanese site ePrice, we’re able to gander at the device posing in an array of different angles and leaving very little to the imagination. For now, pricing still remains a mystery, though we do know Sony’s 4-inch (854 x 480) Neo L is expected to hit Chinese shelves later this month. Until then, anyone intrigued can jump past the break to check out a different look, or hit the source link for the full set of snaps.

When we first laid our hands on LG’s Optimus 4X at Mobile World Congress, we were left with mixed impressions, which was due in part to its pre-release software. While the phone tore through web pages and pinch-to-zoom actions with 1080p video, it struggled to keep pace with LG’s own custom UI — an unfortunate echo of our experience with the Optimus 2X. Now, LG’s latest superphone has been put through the rigors of a few popular benchmark tests, which confirm there’s plenty of quad-core, Tegra 3 potential inside this beast. While the Optimus 4X HD was easily surpassed by the One X in Quadrant tests, it actually bested HTC’s premiere handset in the similar AnTuTu benchmark. Keep in mind, these aren’t final scores, as we’ll perform our own tests with a retail unit, but if you’d like to see how everything unfolded, just hop the break.
Initial teardowns of the new iPad whetted many a chip nerd’s appetite when they revealed that the A5x chip inside was truly gigantic. At nearly 13x13mm, it is significantly larger than the A5, which was itself already kind of a hefty bugger.
Now some clear images (from Chipworks) have been taken of the die itself (some rather rough ones with initial “floorplans” showed up earlier over the weekend) and it’s becoming more and more clear that the A5x is a stopgap measure: a last-generation product that’s overcompensating, if you will, with a jumbo-sized GPU.
The A5x is manufactured with a Samsung 45nm process, a size Intel and AMD were using back in 2008. Nowadays all the cool kids are using 22nm. That means modern chips can fit around four times as many transistors and cells onto a piece of silicon than the technology used to create the A5x. It’s kind of ironic, since Apple has focused so much on getting four times the pixels into its displays.
Of course, it isn’t quite an apples-to-apples comparison; the ARM architecture and SoC model are a different animal than the x86 model. But it’s not going too far to say that the A5x is the processor equivalent of like a souped-up street car from a few years back. Sure, it gets the job done, but you can’t keep adding turbos and wings forever. At some point that engine hits its limit. And while the GPU performance is good, the base technology of the A5x is starting to show its age, and the competition may use that to their advantage.
And even before the new iPad was released, the name A5x really tipped Apple’s entire hand. Our speculation was correct, and chances are the “true” successor to the A5 series will come in the new iPhone. Will it be based on ARM’s A15/A7 big.little model? Seems logical. Saving power is essential with the major GPU, screen, and LTE. It may be too late for Apple to adapt it, but anything could happen.
And it must be acknowledged that most consumers really, really don’t care what processor or chip is inside their iPad. But the drama going on behind the curtain is still interesting to those of us who do care, and as we have seen, sometimes these little technical stories shed light on long-term plans.
One last fun thing: if you go to the large photos over at Chipworks, you can actually see the varying densities of the logic cells on the dark areas. It shows up as a sort of mottled, almost sloppy look, but it is in fact highly precise engineering. All the wonders of our modern tech-based world have their base in these microscopic clusters of transistors, memory cells, and logic gates. It’s fascinating (to yours truly, at least) to see them forming this kind of micro-topography.

Maybe it’s just interference from our seasonal goggles, but isn’t there something quite cheery about SSD reviews? In the case of OCZ’s Octane drive, our good spirits derive from the sturdy performance of its freshly-conceived Indilinx Everest controller, which ought to keep big players like SandForce and Samsung on their toes. HotHardware just reviewed the $ 369 512GB variant and found that it delivered fast boot-up times, strong read speeds and writes that were just shy of enthusiast-class drives.

It’s been a sliver under a month since UK ISP British Telecom was ordered to cut all ties to filesharing site Newzbin 2. Now, a European court decision deals a counter blow to media owners by denying their demands to hustle ISPs into tracking freeloading downloaders. Specifically, the court held that it was illegal to force an ISP to install and maintain a system filtering all of its traffic as it could infringe customer privacy rights. While the decision will prove unpopular in big-wig boardrooms, joe public will no doubt be pleased with the court’s upholding of both net neutrality, and of course not having to shred quite as many strongly worded letters from his or her ISP.
