HTC Pledges To Pump Up ‘One’ Production While Samsung’s New Flagship Ships Like Crazy

htc-one-review02

Oh HTC. You’ve produced one of the finest Android smartphones ever (seriously, just look at all these reviews), but you’ve faced more than your share of challenges when it came to actually pumping your top-tier One smartphone. As it happens, that may all soon change.

FocusTaiwan reported earlier today that HTC is preparing to pump out more of its wonderful Ones in short order — Jack Tong, the company’s North Asia president, noted that this month’s production capacity for the flagship device is twice that of April, and that surge will only continue into June.

Sounds pretty yawn-worthy, right? Normally I would spend too much time dwelling on the finer points of production capacity, but here’s a device that was launched to widespread praise by an underdog smartphone company some people have written off, and HTC has basically been getting screwed thanks to part shortages for the One’s Ultrapixel camera and a brief injunction due to the HDR microphone it uses. It’s like a perfect storm of headaches for a company that really, really doesn’t need it — one look at its Q1 financials and it’s clear that HTC needed this launch to go as smoothly as possible. It didn’t.

For what it’s worth, HTC hasn’t disclosed how many Ones it’s shipped since it launched earlier this year. Meanwhile, rival Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has become the Korean electronics giant’s fastest moving smartphone — Samsung shipped 6 million units in just over two weeks, and it hopes to cross the 10 million unit threshold by the end of this month. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that Google’s Hugo Barra showed off a version of the S4 at the company’s I/O developer conference that runs a version of Android that’s unfettered by the software bloat that many a reviewer took umbrage at. Company representatives were careful not to call it a Nexus — even though it seems to harbor many of the advantages inherent to the Nexus line like a clean Android build and access to frequent software updates.

As I noted towards the end of my HTC One review, the wireless industry isn’t a meritocracy — the well-executed device doesn’t always wind up saving the day. Hopefully now that some of these production woes have been ironed out we’ll see HTC live to fight another day, but that’s still far from a given.

Need To Pump Up Your iPhone Voice Recordings? The Pint-Sized iRig MIC Cast Is Now Shipping

image

The microphone in the iPhone 4S is pretty good — I have found it to capture excellent quality on all my consumer-ish recordings and videos. Of course, that is not to say it could not be improved.

When the iRig MIC Cast was announced at CES this year, I was pretty excited. I have gotten a lot of use out of the original iRig MIC and this miniaturized version seemed poised to make my travel recordings an even more portable affair.

Thankfully, it did not disappoint. The mic’s dual gain setting really extended the abilities of my iPhone for my consumer Video/Audio recordings, which is especially impressive considering the microphone is about the size of a half dollar. The new iRig also comes with a desktop stand to prop my phone while I’m recording, and I while didn’t use it too often, it could definitely come in handy for sit-down interviews and the like. Oh, and in case you felt some weird urge to do so, it works just fine when taking phone calls too.

While I am not sure what other non-iOS devices are actually supported, I was able to get it to work with things like the Korg Kaossilator 2 — a nifty bonus for sure.

What can I say, I am a fan of this little gadget in all of it’s portable glory. It’s shipping today and costs $ 39.99/€29.99. More info at www.irigmiccast.com

Just Dance 3 – Black Eyed Peas “Pump It” – Xbox Kinect

Well this avatar looked like MJ a lot. But overall a very fun song and makes me wonder how the Black Eyed Peas Experience is going to be like. Twitter Acct: twitter.com A like would help, A Subscribe would be Awesome, but a Comment is always nice. Copyright is bad….Thats why I bought the game to enjoy it and bring my gameplay to yall. The Music is still own by the Record Company and the Game is done by Ubisoft. but I bought the game so no hard feelings, just letting my Fair Usage Act go.

NRG to bring 200 fast-charging EV stations to the Golden State, pump $100 million into CA infrastructure

Way back before NRG was making electric DeLoreans and building solar power plants, it co-owned a slew of power facilities in California with Dynegy — an energy outfit that got caught up in a long-term litigation over some old energy contracts with the state. Long story short, that legal dispute became NRG’s problem in 2006, after it acquired Dynegy’s majority stake in the partnership — a problem it’s finally resolving by peppering California with 200 fast-charging EV stations. The $ 120 million settlement promises to create jobs, invest in the state’s economy and provide job training for the stations’ maintenance and installation crews.

NRG may be shelling out some serious cash, but the deal is still mutually beneficial — those extra vehicle chargers will be running on its own fee-based eVgo network, after all. Governor Jerry Brown calls the settlement the beginning of a “virtuous circle” that will boost EV sales for the state, which will in turn, provoke investors to expand California’s charging infrastructure, which will, of course, sell more cars. In fact, he’s banking on it, and has signed an executive order setting targets for EV adoption. If all goes as planned, you’ll be looking at a smog free San Francisco skyline by 2050. Won’t that be nice?

New Pocket Projectors From 3M Pump Up The Lumens

2012_1_PP_MP220_22 (2)

CES is just the event for little items like these: gadgets, pure and simple. Pico-projectors (or mini, micro, pocket, or what have you projectors) are among the few gadgets I really enjoy seeing incremental improvements in, and look forward to CES every year for those improvements. This year hasn’t disappointed: we saw Optoma’s new gear last night, Microvision has a new one coming tomorrow, and 3M has just brought theirs out as well.

There are two new projectors: the MP220, next in series of hot dog bun-shaped pico projectors, and the boxier MP410.

The MP220 is a bright 50 lumens, twice as bright as the last one I reviewed (the MP160), and competitive with the new ones from Optoma and others. It has a 1024×600 resolution, a revised design (wisely revised, I think), and they claim it will last for two hours. The price has also gotten a bump: a daunting $ 479. At that point you start running into “real” projectors as competition, at least in price.

Then there’s the MP410, a more stationary solution but still battery-powered. It’s significantly larger – 4″x4″x1″, and heavier (a shade under a pound), but it pumps out 300 lumens at 1280×768, which is enough to play your HD games and movies, though I wouldn’t trust its online decoders to do the job — better to plug in your laptop or iPod. It has VGA and HDMI inputs, and will run you $ 699.

My only question with these things is whether they’ll run into the same problem as the AAXA P4 I just reviewed: noise. Such bright bulbs and heavy-duty processing, these things get hot right quick and have to spin their fan at high speed. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to check these out, so watch for our review in the coming months.

Feds deny hacking caused Illinois water pump failure

Did a hacker or group of hackers, possibly in Russia, manage to physically destroy a water pump in Springfield, Illinois? That was the word last week, when reports spread that hackers had managed to take control of the water plant’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (or SCADA), which gave them the ability to repeatedly turn the pump on and off and eventually burn it out. Now, however, both the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security say that their investigations have found no evidence of hacking or malicious activity, and that earlier reports were based on “raw, unconfirmed data.” As you might expect, that explanation isn’t quite being accepted by everyone, including Joe Weiss, the security researcher who first reported the incident. You can find his comments on Wired’s Threat Level blog linked below.

Ecko Zip earbuds pump tunes through a functioning zipper, let you drop your fly in public


We already knew that New Jersey was a hotbed for personal audio innovation, so it certainly came as no surprise when the Garden State’s ECKOUNLTD (Ecko Unlimited, with a hint of Jersey Shore) hit us up with a slew of new stylz. We’re most curious about the new Zip ‘buds, which replace the traditional cord with a functioning zipper, presumably to keep that ever-so-prevalent tangling issue from crampin’ your style. These in-ear beauts will set you back just 30 beans — or about a half-dozen servings of Ron Ron Juice. Other offerings include the $ 13 Zone earbuds, $ 15 Chaos II (that Chaos I was off the hook), the $ 20 Stomp, $ 25 Lace (which include a shoelace-inspired cord), and the $ 40 Chain, which, as you probably guessed, features a beaded dog-tag chain cord. At those prices we wouldn’t expect stellar acoustics, but if you’re rockin’ out to any of these budz, you’re probably most concerned with lookin’ good. And nothing says six-pack like zippers and chains.
