Android-powered 7-inch Netbook spotted at CES 2010

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2010

Android is literally in everything. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it show up in a teapot next. Anyhow, this GL-750 netbook was spotted at CES 2010 running the Google Android operating system. It comes from Taiwanese PC maker King Yung.

You get a 533MHz Freescale iMX31 ARM11-based processor along with 128MB RAM and up to 16GB of flash storage. Aside from Android, you can also get it with Windows CE or a lightweight Linux distro built on a 2.6.x kernel.

Posted in 3M by Shane McGlaun on January 7th, 2010

Projectors for a long time were large boxy devices that had to be carried around in their own case to keep them safe. This was a huge pain for users who had to use projectors to give presentations frequently. Thankfully, the smaller pocket and pico projectors started coming out that reduced the size of the average projector considerably.

3M has unveiled a new pocket projector at CES called the MPro150 that can throw a 50-inch image and has 15 lumens of brightness. That isn’t going to cut it in bright rooms. The projector has 1GB of internal storage allowing presentations to be uploaded directly to the device.

If you have ever had to get your car worked on at the shop or have looked under the dash by the drivers legs you may have noticed the little port on your computer controlled car. That Port is the OBD II port and it allows the shop to see any errors or warnings that the car’s computer has recorded.

That same port can be used by the driver to glean data about their ride if they have the right equipment. Garmin has announced a cool new device called the ecoRoute hd that plugs into that OBD II port and wirelessly sends information about your car to compatible Garmin GPS units.

I bet there are lots of you out there who like me enjoy watching the occasional video online from YouTube or Hulu. The main reason I don’t watch more videos is that I don’t like watching on my PC screen. I want to watch on my big screen in the living room.

Alereon is showing off a new OEM solution at CES that is called the NoWire Laptop to HDTV Extender Kit reference design. The tech allows you to plug a USB dongle into your laptop and a receiver into your HDTV via the HDMI port.

ASUS and Bang & Olufsen have been hanging out. They’ve decided to have a bro-mance. And we have to admit, this is one slick laptop. That polished aluminum exterior looks great. But it has more going for it than that.
