Apple II’s 35-year-old operating system is now open to the public

In a world of super-fast OS X and Windows machines, it’s easy to forget that early desktop computers were a lot more basic. That was the case for the Apple II, Cupertino’s first mass-market computer that utilized a cassette tape for data storage and just 4K of memory. Now, more than 35 years later …

Underwater robots search for World War II’s missing dead

There are dead American soldiers at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and Pat Scannon is working to bring them home. Scannon is the founder of the BentProp Project, which conducts underwater expeditions to search for old World War II fighter planes off the coast of Palau, and the remains that may be inside them. For two decades, Scannon’s work has relied on historical records and old maps, but as Andy Isaacson writes in a piece for Popular Science, underwater robotics are playing an increasingly important role. An underwater robot known as Remus has begun scanning the floor of the Pacific Ocean floor, capturing imagery and using sonar to create maps and detect any hunks of metal that may be buried in mud. The technology has made it a lot…

Did the Galaxy Note II’s remarkable benchmarks briefly get passed?

Did the Galaxy Note II's impressive benchmarks briefly get leaked

Well, Samsung has something up its sleeve, we understand that much. Whether or not we’re examining a new Note remains to be seen, however it’s safe to assume Sammy will certainly update its phablet line as it approaches its first birthday. So it’s no wonder people’s uncertainties were piqued when a mysterious tool made a quick look at GLBenchmark.com with the design number GT-N7100. The original Note was N7000, so certainly several are guessing this unnamed Ice Cream Sandwich gadget is its successor. All the details have actually since been pulled, however PhoneArena managed to snag a screenshot. Whatever it ends up, we understand it’s got a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor with Mali-400 graphics– the same you’ll locate inside the Galaxy S III. The one specification that does leave a bit of doubt however is the resolution, which is noted at juts 1280×720, as an alternative of the 1280×800 of the original. In the benchmarks it takes care of to eke out scores somewhat higher than the GSIII, which makes sense thanks to its higher clocked CPU. Now it’s simply time to unwind and play the hanging around game.

Orange officially acknowledges San Francisco II’s existence, set to debut late November (video)

A few days ago, Orange UK technically let the cat out of the bag with its upcoming sequel to last year’s penny-pinching San Francisco, and it’s finally ready to give us more than just the Help & Support page.

Cost? £99 ($ 155) on PAYG and free on Pay Monthly with a 24-month term of at least £10.50. Incidentally, you probably won’t find too many of these in the city it’s named after. Press release below.
