COOL Pendrives

A USB flash drive consists of a NAND-type flash memory data storage device integrated with a USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface. USB flash drives are typically removable and rewritable, much smaller than a floppy disk, and most weigh less than an ounce (30 g).

Modern flash drives have USB 2.0 connectivity. However, they do not currently use the full 480 Mbit/s (60MB/s) the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed specification supports due to technical limitations inherent in NAND flash. The fastest drives currently available use a dual channel controller, although they still fall considerably short of the transfer rate possible from a current generation hard disk, or the maximum high speed USB throughput.

USB drives comes in thousands of designs and colors, but these 10 are extraordinary weird. Or what do you think? Go ahead, check them out. They are weird! Promise. For more Delatils..

IPTV- Revolution in Television Market

Over the last decade, the growth of satellite service, the rise of digital cable, and the birth of HDTV have all left their mark on the television landscape. Now, a new delivery method threatens to shake things up even more powerfully. Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) has arrived, and backed by the deep pockets of the telecommunications industry, it's poised to offer more interactivity and bring a hefty dose of competition to the business of selling TV.

IPTV describes a system capable of receiving and displaying a video stream encoded as a series of Internet Protocol packets. If you've ever watched a video clip on your computer, you've used an IPTV system in its broadest sense. When most people discuss IPTV, though, they're talking about watching traditional channels on your television, where people demand a smooth, high-resolution, lag-free picture, and it's the telcos that are jumping headfirst into this market. Once known only as phone companies, the telcos now want to turn a "triple play" of voice, data, and video that will retire the side and put them securely in the batter's box. For More Info Visit.

Cisco's Telepresence - Death of Distance

The Cisco TelePresence On-Stage Experience was an ambitious collaboration between Cisco and Musion Systems, which took place during the opening of Cisco’s Globalization Centre East in Bangalore, India. Musion seamlessly integrated their 3D holographic display technology with Cisco’s TelePresence’s system to create the world’s first real time virtual presentation.

In the past, building and maintaining those critical business relationships meant expensive face-to-face engagement and productivity challenges, as well as mention time spent away from home and family.

Cisco TelePresence™ creates a live, face-to-face communication experience over the network that empowers you to collaborate like never before. Cisco TelePresence helps people meet, share content, create high-quality video recordings and events, consult with experts and deliver powerful personalized services, all using the power of the network for an immersive in-person experience.

Cisco demonstrated an "On-Stage" Telepresence experience at the launch of their Globilization Center East in Bangalore, India. During a presentation to the media in Bangalore, Cisco CEO John Chambers "beamed up" Marthin De Beer, Senior Vice President of Emerging Technology Group at Cisco, and Chuck Stucki the General Manager of the Telepresence Business Unit from San Jose. The photorealistic and lifesize virtual duo from San Jose then interacted with the Cisco CEO and presented to the audience in India.

Apple MacBook

The new Apple MacBook does and has it all: up to 2.4 GHz of pure Intel Core Duo power, an iSight camera, Front Row, iLife ’06, and a 13" glossy widescreen display. The MacBook is Apple's most aggressive notebook to date, but for less than you'd think. With everything from an optional DVD burning SuperDrive and built in Bluetooth, to up to 2G of RAM and up to 160 hard drive, it's an amazing notebook at an incredibly affordable price.

A traditional computer logic board contains multiple components: the CPU, two chips that control communication throughout the computer, and the graphics processor. The logic board in the MacBook contains only two components: the CPU and a graphics processor with all of the core logic built into a single chip. Open your MacBook and you're instantly greeted by glorious full screen brightness. Anything you view, including the glossy widescreen display itself, is a spectacular experience. The LED-backlit display is more power efficient. And it's mercury- and arsenic-free, so it's greener than ever.

Apple 3G - Step Up to the New Generation

Apple’s design sense has always been splendid; the iPhone 3G doesn’t break that rule. The first time you look at it; you’ll think iPod Touch on a high-fat diet. Thankfully the rear resists normal smudging and scratches. It’s not a very thick device but feels large to hold; although with a 3.5-inch screen this isn’t exactly a design flaw. Build quality is excellent. Quality of buttons and switches on the device are top-class. The buttons on the sides, top and the headphone jack are chromed and along with the black bezel and chrome trim this adds further visual appeal. Apple’s menu system is excellent with the single Home button being perfectly functional; most phones with extra keys look Jurassic in comparison.

The iPhone menus work well, but the on-screen keypad is a little small and you will make a few incorrect key taps for the first month or so, which won’t please SMS junkies. The phone’s number pad is huge though; and you’ll have to be a clod to goof up typing out numbers. There is no way to delete or select multiple messages. You also cannot save a typed out SMS as a draft. Given the problem with the cramped keypad we’d have thought a Bluetooth keyboard would help but Apple chose to cut us short; the iPhone’s Bluetooth only works with headsets and not with other devices. File transfer over Bluetooth is also missed.

In terms of signal quality we found the iPhone to be lacking when we put it through its paces in comparison to other phones. It’s way behind some of the Nokias and behind some of the other phones too. The loudspeaker also distorts a lot. Thankfully the handsfree unit is as excellent as we’ve seen and really gets one through many calls where the signal quality is not as good thanks to its high volume level and exceptional clarity. Music quality on headphones is also superb.
