Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

The iTwin USB storage device has finally begun shipping, but the first batch is limited to just 50 units. Just plug these into two PCs, and they create a network through which they can share data between each other over the Internet. If you remove one, the connection is broken and the data sharing stops.

The iTwin USB Drive lets you transmit data between the computers via a network between the two devices using 256bit AES encryption, so everything will be safe and secure.

ASUS introduces O!Play HD2 networked media player with USB 3.0

Posted in Media Players by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2010

ASUS has added a third model to their O!Play mediaplayer range, the ASUS O!Play HD2. Sadly we don’t have any information. Just the name, with no specs. However the photo reveals USB, eSATA and various forms of memory card reader.

Assuming that the O!Play HD2 is similar to the two models that have gone before it, we would guess 1080p HD video output via HDMI with networking support, either ethernet or 802.11n like the O!Play Air HDP-R3. Hopefully we will have full specs soon.

Google fiber network: 100x faster broadband

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2010

Google has announced the latest stage in their plans to accelerate broadband speeds, with a plan to offer 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections for between 50,000 and 500,000 people across the US. The planned service is described as “competitive” and the network would offer connections about 100 times the speed of the current average US broadband.

Once the new system is in place, Google is hoping to experiment with new uses of high-speed connectivity, like bandwidth-intensive apps and services, together with looking at the physical ways in which fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) is deployed.

Android powers Raytheon battlefield network

Posted in Android by Shane McGlaun on October 22nd, 2009

android-robot-militaryWe have been fielding robots of all sorts on the battlefield for a while now, typically associated with finding and disposing of bombs and other explosive devices. I always thought when Android’s hit the battlefield they would be packing laser cannons and the visage of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Apparently, the first Android to hit the battlefield will be in the form of Google’s open source OS and cheap computer terminals.

Raytheon has announced its RATS battlefield networking system will be powered by Android. The system will allow troops in the field to coordinate with other combatants and gain access to other assets. Presumably, these other assets would include air strikes and drones.

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 8th, 2009

USB 7 Port HUB switch for dual PC usageElecom of Japan has just introduced a few USB switches that will come with a 2- and 7-port USB hub. It allows you to share anywhere from two to seven USB-connected devices over a couple of computers without installing a private network.

Perfect if you and your wife want to share or for room mate situations, though you most likely would still want to set up a private network as their are more benefits. It’s a nice option to have though.

ABC coming to Hulu?

Posted in Television by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

ABC coming to Hulu?Looks like we may soon be getting another network’s content on Hulu sometime very soon. Supposedly Disney is discussing the possibility of sharing their ABC TV shows on the website. Some other Disney-owned shows might make it over as well. What this means is that you’ll be able to catch up on everything you missed on LOST and maybe also check out all your favorite High School Musical type programs. Yeah, sure you don’t watch them.

There’s no word on how close Disney and Hulu might be to making a deal, but the company is getting more interested, now that Hulu is more popular. If the deal goes through, Hulu would then have three of the four major networks on their web video service, which would be pretty awesome.

W-41: Your Social Media Identity on your clothes

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2008

W-41: Your Social Media Identity on your clothesThe W-41 is a high tech shirt that not only holds BO, but soime interesting data as well. See that logo€? If you capture it with a cellphone, you’ll be whisked away to that person’s MySpace page, Blog, or other social networking site. Here’s how it works. You buy one of the pieces of clothing on the site that has this logo, which is unique to only you with your personal info. Then just wear it and do your thing.

If someone in the know passes by and they have downloaded the software on the site for free to their phone, they capture it. Your blogs and virtual identity are revealed and they can leave you messages or check out your social networks. You can get T-shirts and sweatshirts for women and men in vintage white, vintage black, and vintage brown. T-shirts are $49 and $56 for sweatshirts. Pretty cool idea. It kinda makes stalking that much weirder. Does this make stalking a bit more acceptable or not? I’m confused. We’ll if you have the shirt, I’ll be taken a pic. What about when the shirt gets worn? Will it take me to someone else’s page?

Nintendo announces Wi-Fi network adapter

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2008

Nintendo announces Wi-Fi network adapterI hear ya. The Wii and DS already have Wi-Fi. True, but this device is a Wi-Fi router/bridge for those who don’t have wireless networks. Even when you do have a wireless network, it can be a pain to get your Wii set up depending on your provider. The device will be available in Japan on September 18th for $53.

Obviously it resembles one of those Wii knockoff jobs from China, but it’s the real deal. The adapter has a switch for three modes on back: “Router”, “Bridge” and “Auto”. “Router” is self-explanatory, while “Bridge” connects to another router and then communicates with the Nintendo DS and Wii. “Auto” will switch the household’s network over automatically.
