Microsoft Surface

It’s all over the place by now. Microsoft introduces Surface. A revolutionary way of computing without keyboard and mouse. Simply with hand gestures … you can get things done. It’ll take a while to see it in widespread use though … but very nice otherwise.

I just hope it won’t display the blue screen of death when you’re on a hot date!

Excite and please her with your phone

product-shot-2.jpgIt’s now available! A toy to connect 2 lovers separated worlds apart. The Toy is a bluetooth connected SMS controlled vibrator great for those who can’t keep their hands off each other even when they’re apart. Best of all, it’s so discreet only you and your partner knows about it.

I’m not sure if the vibrating sound will turn some heads but it’s indeed a novel idea.

2 Vistas

Yes I’m currently using 2 Vistas … one of which is good and the other one sucks so much I’m thinking of downgrading.

Garmin VistaThe one I love is my Garmin eTrex Vista GPS receiver. This vista was indispensable during my Europe trip last year. I’ll be so lost without it.

Of lately, I’ve been using a lot of it’s built in electronic compass. It accurately shows me where I’m heading and more importantly where a particular house door is facing. You see, I’ve been house hunting for myself and my uncle.

Another feature I used is the barometric altimeter. Since I’ve been checking out houses near the beach … you need to have a home with at least 15meters elevation above sea level … just to be safe.

This Vista is always with me when I’m deep in the jungle … just in case I don’t wanna wait for the stars to tell which way is north.

iPhone

iPhoneThis may not be fresh news but Apple announced their latest gadget called the iPhone during Macworld 2007 in San Francisco.

Combining the powers of an Internet enabled PDA, phone and iPod … everyone would want to get their hands on this absolute beauty. When would it be available? That would be Q4 this year and if you’re in Asia … think next year.

Think music, movies and mobilephone all in a tight OS X package. Touch sensitive screen keeps you in control like never before. Love to shoot photos? The iPhone comes with a 2 megapixel built in camera. Browsing your email and webpages would be a delight with the beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display.

The only bummer about the iPhone is it not being a 3G phone. Oh did I mention my birthday is just around the corner?

Don’t take my word for it. Check it out yourself.

It’s coming! Yes this 19th November 2006, Nintendo will launch their latest console.

Drool at it.

Let the car almost drive itself

VDOSiemens invented a system capable of indentifying traffic signs for you. It’s onboard camera scans ahead for traffic signs and displays them on the windscreen. It’s also able to reduce the cruise control speed of the vehicle.

With an electronic traffic sign recognition function Siemens VDO is offering a system which will shortly make inadvertent speeding a thing of the past. If the driver wishes, the adaptive cruise control function can also lower the current speed to the respective speed limit. A camera constantly scans the road ahead and can recognize speed limits on traffic signs. If driving too fast, the driver is warned by a conveniently visible signal on the head-up display for instance, or the speed set on the adaptive cruise control function can be automatically adjusted. The system has been developed as part of the pro.pilot project – Siemens VDO’s network of advanced driver assistance systems – and can go into series production in 2008.
