12/21/2009, At CES, you are going to see an avalanche of new Netbooks with the new Atom platform that Intel launched yesterday. Some will have fan-less designs, and many will use the Crystal HD chip from Broadcom that accelerates 1080p video decode. The photo above shows the chip in action – look at the CPU bar on the left (with Crystal HD). It’s not clear how good it will be with Flash, but […]
12/21/2009, While nobody would think that the iPhone 3GS is a replacement for a full fledged video recorder, there’s no harm trying to use it as one, right? With the help of the OWLE mount, you’ll certainly bring your iPhone one step closer to becoming a proper video recorder. The anodized aluminum case will give you a better way to hold the iPhone, not to mention that it adds weight to […]
11/30/2009, JVC and Kenwood have teamed up to release their maiden car navigation system known as the MDV-313, where this device is touted to bring the best of both worlds in a solitary device. You get a built-in DVD player (no Blu-ray yet), an integrated 1Seg TV tuner, a USB port and virtual 3D maps among others, where the highlight of the MDV-313 would be its high speed response time that […]
11/30/2009, For those of you who are dreaming about becoming the next James Bond, you’ll certainly be attracted to JTT’s WACAHD8GB wristwatch. It looks like your average wristwatch, but it it’s able to shoot 1280 x 960 resolution videos at 30fps, and you’ll also be able to take still shots that are just under 8-megapixels. While on paper it seems great, the quality of the images and videos taken show that […]
11/24/2009, Vudu just announced that its service now integrates Wikipedia information about movies, actors and more. Users will be able to read articles and follow links, just like they would on Wikipedia.com. However, Vudu is also adding links to Vudu information like the filmography of an actor/actress. That’s not only an interesting way to know more about the content, but it can also help find related content. Because all the user-interface […]
11/12/2009, Green-house certainly picked a rather apt name for its GAUDI video cameras, though we’re not too sure about FANCY. Based on the exterior, it’s most likely that these video cameras are aimed at the fairer sex. They certainly are not slouches in the feature department though, as they’re capable of shooting 720p HD videos in the H264 format, and even take pictures up to 3200 x 2400 resolution. The 128MB […]
11/12/2009, Pink and white polka dots might not appeal to everyone, but if you’re looking for something along those lines, the Pink Dottie Take-It Video Camcorder is probably up your street. The camcorder features a color LCD, direct USB connector, and while built-in memory is almost non-existent at 32MB, it does support SD card expansion. It’ll going for $99, for if you want something not too expensive to play with, this […]
11/11/2009, Microsoft and Google seem to be competing more and more in the same market space, so it’ll certainly be interesting to see how things work out in the long run. Now it seems that MSN Video will be merged into the Bing umbrella, giving birth to Bing Video, probably something that can face up to YouTube? The competition might not be so straightforward though, as the site will offer viral […]
11/09/2009, Still drooling over Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X10? Well, if you just can’t get enough of the phone, check out a promotional video on it, and see a bunch of glamorous looking people fiddle around with the X10. With the Motorola Droid, XPERIA X10, will the iPhone 3GS have a tough battle in 2009/2010?
11/05/2009, We all know that Netflix will be offering video streaming for the PS3, and that this feature will be made available to PS3 owners before the year is over. Which isn’t too far away, actually, so if you’re a Netflix subscriber (and own a PS3 at the same time), might we suggest that you get a copy of the Netflix disc in order to get ready for the big kahuna […]
09/08/2009, Vringo and Marvel partnered to create mobile video ringtones based on the famous library of Super Heroes. Today, they launched a storefront and web-based editing platform http://vringo.marvel.com where fans can buy movie clips or create their own using Marvels’ archives. Users need to have video-ready phones to view and send the Marvel movies, and they need Vringo-application compatible phones to turn the clips into video ringtones. Now you can be […]
08/10/2009, The FFC website (detail page no longer exists) has a bunch of photos of the Zune HD Components. While it serves no real purpose to look at that stuff, we admit that we have a curiosity for this type of things. The photos show the 730mAh battery, which seems small, as many phones have a 14xxmAh BUT it’s not a phone, there’s no radio – which is a big power hog. […]
07/28/2009, You remember that Viewsonic had launched a bunch of Atom-based computers? Well, here’s a hands-on video of the VOT130, courtesy of netbooknews.com. This particular Nettop should be capable of playing HD content… that’s certainly smaller than my current living room PC, but can it record TV? No.
07/27/2009, Apple has made its SDK 3.1b3 available to developers. Today’s news is that Apple is making a video API available so that developers can retrieve the video feed from the internal camera to build augmented reality apps. The last time we checked, AcrossAir is already doing this, but it might get easier, who knows. If you wonder what Augmented Reality is, check this demo of AcrossAir. Interestingly enough, Apple has not approve existing augmented […]
