It was only about a month ago when we first came across some clear shots of Sony Ericsson’s upcoming Nozomi (aka LT26i), and now it looks like someone in Hong Kong has also gotten hold of this pretty Android phone. HKEPC’s forum leakster, who claims to have received this image from a friend, doesn’t actually reveal much here (not even a codename), but he or she does confirm that a dual-core chip and a 720p LCD are packed within — this matches what we heard from the previous leak. Furthermore, we’re told that a Hong Kong carrier is already testing this device, so don’t be surprised if it pops up in the market within the next month or two.
Screenshots of Microsoft’s Windows 8 Storage Spaces feature leaked to the Internet on Monday
Storage Spaces in Windows 8 will link up with Microsoft’s new Resilient File System (ReFS) to create a new level of redundancy in Windows 8. Microsoft’s new Storage Spaces feature of Windows 8 will automatically correct any data that has become corrupted over the various Pool Drives in a particular data set. The feature is similar to software RAID but can utilise Microsoft’s ReFS for increased redundancy.
Storage Spaces screenshots were posted by PCBeta on Monday and demonstrate the setup process for the feature. According to our own sources, Storage Spaces will only be present in Server versions of Windows 8, with the possibility of the feature making its way to high-end client SKUs. Microsoft will support petabyte data set sizes with Storage Spaces and ReFS.
Windows 8 Storage Spaces feature plays nicely with ReFS originally appeared at WinRumors.com.

Are you settling for non-3D sound to go with all of your 3D movies? You should be ashamed of yourself. Thankfully, Sony’s looking out for you. The company’s new MDR-DS7500 headphones promise 3D surround sound, thanks in part to the inclusion of Dolby Pro Logic IIz technology. The headphones have a number of different sound settings, serving different audio needs, including Cinema Mode, Game Mode, and Voice Mode. Also, that extra padding assures that they’ll play nicely with your 3D glasses. The headphones will be hitting Japan on October 10th, running ¥49,350 ($ 643) for the full package and ¥24,675 ($ 321) for additional headphones. Extra dimensions don’t come cheap, after all.

We’ve seen our fair share of funky micro stereos over the years, but LG’s latest just might be the most bodacious yet. Curvaceous and compact, the FB614M all-in-one system is ready for every DVD and CD you could toss at it, and streaming jams from your phone or PMP won’t be an issue so long as your device is equipped with a little-known protocol by the name of Bluetooth. Naturally, there’s an iDevice dock up top as well as a touch sensitive control dial, and the inbuilt USB ensures that most every other player is well taken care of, too. Your guess is as good as ours when it comes to wattage and sound quality, but South Koreans can find out themselves later this week for â‚©299,000 ($ 257).
…I'm wondering if anyone has heard news of amazon getting into the textbook market for the kindle yet. I know this has been going on for a while, but I've not found anything to say one way or the other.

…lap and find it super easy to type on. As a heavy web surfer, social media person and a heavy MS Office user, I'm wondering what, if any, issues would prevent me from making this my primary computer. Will having multiple docs and Chrome tabs really slow it down or is it just other types of software I should avoid. I've already got a few…

Great news, everyone! I just upgraded my Zune HD’s firmware to the latest and greatest version, version 4.5, and I’m here to report that everything went smoothly… mostly. I probably shouldn’t have used the word “everything,” then. I can now play Xvid videos just fine, having tested an old SummerSlam 2001 DVD rip that I had in my Zune video folder. (Why I have old WWE DVD rips on my hard drive is a matter for another day.) So no problems whatsoever in that regard.
Smart DJ, on the other hand, seems just OK. You touch the little icon and off the Zune goes, trying to find similar artists and genres based on your current artist selection. The thing is, the results are sorta lackluster. Like, I’ll activate Smart DJ when looking at Pearl Jam, and it’ll throw back other songs from the same album, or merely other Pearl Jam songs from different albums. Same thing goes with Jay-Z. I thought the point was new music discovery? Or, even more weird (but in a different way), I’ll activate Smart DJ while looking at Ladytron and it’ll create a playlist including Wu-Tang Clan. What do Ladytron and Wu-Tang have in common? Unless I missed some sort of experimental phase of the Wu-Tang Clan, I’m gonna say they don’t have very much in common!
It’s not always like that—I’ll pick Yeah Yeah Yeahs and it’ll make a playlist including Phoenix. That at least makes sense—it’s all indie rock nonsense.
Presumably Smart DJ improves the more music you have on your Zune HD, and since I only have a 16GB version… Good thing there’s a 64GB version!
So, video playback works splendidly, but Smart DJ is a little iffy.
The feature I’d like to see most, especially if Microsoft is pushing the Zune HD as a “higher end” media player? FLAC playback. Surely if the Zune HD can handle Xvid playback it can handle FLAC playback, right?
