Intel wants to charge $50 to upgrade CPU performance

Posted in Intel by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

This one will make you angry if you want every bit of power from your CPU. Intel is asking customers to pay extra if they want to unleash the full power of their store-bought cpus. An Engadget reader was at Best Buy when he spotted this $50 card. Intel websites confirm it. The card lets you download software to unlock extra threads and cache on the new Pentium G6951 processor.

Hardware.info got themselves an early sample of the chip and it’s a full 1MB of L3 cache that’s enabled plus HyperThreading support. Chip companies already sell hardware-locked chips, so this isn’t new. The process is called binning, but binned chips are usually sold with cores or cache locked because that part of their chips turned are defective after printing.

Fujitsu paper-based electronic card for hospitals

Posted in Fujitsu by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2010

Clocking in or out of an office usually requires a company card that you flash at the entry and exit points of the building. Fujitsu is working on offering a new solution for hospitals that can be used during the check-in process. This solution will connect electronic card holders using electronic paper to a patient navigation system, where it will guide patients to examination rooms or diagnostic testing rooms etc.

Just insert an IC-equipped registration card, and the electronic card holder will automatically link into the medical facility’s electronic patient navigation system and electronic medical record system to ensure the registration process is complete. It will also show outpatients where to go using visual displays and vibration.

Make your own MicroSIM card

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2010

If you have an iPad 3G and have a SIM card that you want to cut down to a MicroSIM card, you can do just that. Apparently all you need to convert the iPad 3G to U.K. cellular standards is a meat clever. You can also use scissors.

This U.K. resident was faced with a disparity in SIM cards once he received his iPad from foreign shores: “This morning, my shiny new iPad 3G 64Gb arrived from the USA! The only problem was, it had an AT&T MicroSIM and as yet there is no such thing in the UK.”

Are you using Micro SD cards yet?

Posted in SanDisk by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2009

Are you using Micro SD cards yet?How many of you have started using micro SD cards? If you have, what is your experience? If you haven’t, why not? I recently started using the micro SD cards from Sandisk after avoiding them forever. I just figured, they’re so damn tiny, they had to be annoying. But after using them, I’ve found them pretty darn useful and even though they are obscenely tiny, I’m sold.

They are especially useful for moving songs betweens between your MP3 player and phone. (Assuming you have the micro SD slot). Say you have an 8 GB MP3 player. An 8 GB card doubles your storage. That’s a no brainer. But the fact that you can take the card out and use it on your phone or other device is where they are handy.

Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

Asus Dual Hybrid TV CardThe new Asus My Cinema-EHD3-100/NAQ/FM/AV/MCE RC PCI-express Dual TV card is designed for users who want to watch and record both digital (ATSC/QAM) and analog (NTSC) TV channels at the same time. The device is embedded with an MPEG2 hardware encoder that dramatically reduces CPU loading while guaranteeing high quality video.

Using the PCI Express x1 interface, it will get transmission speeds of up to 500MB/s(almost 3 times faster than that of a conventional PCI bus which runs at 133MB/s). This will give you smooth pictures regardless of the broadcast content. The Asus My Cinema-EHD3-100/NAQ/FM/AV/MCE RC will also let you keep a constant eye on what’s going on on TV while engaged in other PC-based activities. Dubbed ASUS GadgeTV, this widget adds a small window on the Windows Vista sidebar, allowing users to watch record and take snapshots of live TV from their sidebars.

Troika Social Security Card conceptThis concept turns your SS card into a gadget. The Troika Social Security card concept comes with a built-in thumbprint reader, buttons that can change the display from your Social Security info to your Driver’s License or passport.

That way, you can carry just one card on your person and have everything. It features an aluminum body, so it would be tough. The drawback is that if you lose it, you lose everything. And if a identity theif gets it, they get everything, because no matter how good that thumbprint reader is, it can be hacked.

USB cable with built-in SD card reader

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2009

USB cable with built-in SD card readerSo simple a solution, that it’s brilliant. Why we have never seen it before now, I have no idea. This mini-USB cable with an inline SD card reader from Brando combines the USB cable and the SD card. In doing so, it wins over our hearts, our minds and various other bodily orifices. The $12 cable will help you transfer files and photos from the SD card and will also assist you in charging your portable devices via USB.

Inserting an SD card will disable transfers from whichever device is hooked up to the mini-USB end to make way for SD card transfers, but the cable will keep charging the device. Once the card is removed, you’ll again be able to shuttle files between point A and point B.

U-Tag Ice Digital Dog Tag holds your medical info

Posted in Healthcare by Conner Flynn on November 9th, 2008

U-Tag Ice Digital Dog Tag holds your medical infoThe U-Tag ICE Digital Dog Tag is similar to the traditional dog tag. It was originally designed for motorcyclists, making it easy to identify a crash victim and containing emergency information. In the event of an accident, the victim can be easily identified and emergency services would have all of the important medical information that they need. The U-Tag also includes your picture, blood type, and emergency contact details inside. And of course, it’s durable, constructed with a tough aluminum alloy weatherproof enclosure.

Hey, it’s morbid, but if you find yourself in a disaster or an accident, you’ll be glad the doctors have the info that you can’t communicate. Not in love with the dog tag aspect? There’s also a card version of the U-Tag that fits in ID holders, wallets and purses. It retails for $49.99 and the U-Tag Personal ICE system card retails for $39.99.

Nintendo has a storage solution: Load from the SD slot

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on October 2nd, 2008

Nintendo has a storage solution: Load from the SD slotNintendo has come up with a solution to the number one issue that Wii gamers face. Storage. And yes the solution is obvious. During the Japan fall press conference they announced that in the spring of 2009, gamers can expect the ability to load and play software directly from an SD card in your SD slot, as well as download items directly to the SD card. There’s a 2GB maximum, so you’ll want to stock up on 2GB SD cards. I guess it’s better then another peripheral to clutter up our lives.
