Vulkano Flow now available

Posted in Media Streamers by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2011

If you spend a lot of time traveling, this device could be your new best friend. It will help you keep up with your favorite shows while you are away. The Vulkano Flow is a set-top box that will let you beam your own personal TV programs from home anywhere in the world.

It’s as if Scotty from Star Trek is running your very own TV station and beaming stuff your way. The device is now available to purchase online and in some retail stores. The device can place shift TV shows to your smartphone, Android tablet, iPad, or PC and you can pause, fast forward, and rewind live TV. You can also mark some channels as favorites so you can find them quicker.

USB drive glows to show what’s on it

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2010

Can your USB drive do this? No, of course it can’t. Neither can mine. This USB stick concept lets you see what’s on it without having to plug it into a computer. The glass “screen” on the surface shows what kind of files are on board by color: pink means images, blue for documents, green for movie files etc. Wonder what porn looks like. They even fill the space on the back proportionally so you can see which ones are taking up a lot of room.

This design would probably require some kind of battery, which would make the price a bit unattractive, but we love the idea. Many of us would pay extra for the convenience it provides.

Interead expands COOL-ER e-reader line-up, adds content

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2010

We already knew about Interead’s COOL-ER 3G e-book reader, but now they are announcing a new WiFi-equipped COOL-ER Connect model. Details are in short supply, but the reader will apparently have a touchscreen and weigh only 5.8 ounces.

Look for it to be available this Spring. The COOL-ER 3G is scheduled for mid-2010. Interead has also announced a new line of content for its e-book readers. Like the Coolermatic application for instance, which will let users access over 1,400 newspapers and “select websites,”. Twitter feeds as well, but with no posting.

Microsoft offers money for News Corp to de-Google content

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2009

bingRupert Murdoch isn’t very happy with Google making News Corp content available to everybody, but word is that Microsoft is offering to pay News Corp to de-index its news sites from Google, which would probably drive those searching for News Corp sites to Bing.

If that happens, UK folks would probably see The Times and The Sun no longer on Google News. Murdoch has previously threatened to remove News Corp content from Google, so this could prove an added incentive for him to do so.

Sky to put live content on the Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2009

Microsoft denies Blu-ray player rumors for the Xbox 360Sky and Microsoft are striking a deal that will see the Xbox 360 Console playing live broadcast TV. Xbox users will be able to upgrade to Sky channels this autumn in the UK and Ireland. Xbox owners would have access to sports and programs, and also be able to order movies on demand without a set-top box or satellite dish.

Existing Sky subscribers don’t have to worry. The company has hinted at reduced costs if they prefer to use the Xbox console. The line-up of channels and content available on the Xbox would be similar to the existing Sky Player service, available on PCs and Macs.
