Rest your head on the web with these geek pillows from etsy. These handmade fleece pillows measure about 12″x12″ and are filled with 100% polyester fiberfill, not videos and photos from your account.
Google is finally launching Google TV, which brings regular TV and web video to your TV. Plus, Android apps. Should be very powerful, given those factors. Google says that there’s the web, which lives on your laptop and your phone, and the TV world, which lives on your TV.
Google wants to incorporate both of those worlds into “a single seamless experience.” They want to give you the same experience at home on your TV as you get on your computer. A Google search box lets you search and find results from your TV and from the web. If you select the TV channel it goes to your TV channel. Pretty straightforward.
Printers are fairly boring, but HP is looking to shake things up with the “world’s first web-connected printer.” The Photosmart Premium features a 4.33-inch front panel dubbed the Touchsmart Web, a touchscreen interface with several bundled, online apps to accommodate all of your paper-friendly tasks.
It even has a full-on HD Apps Studio just in case downloading new apps on your printer really takes off. The API’s being made open for the entire realm of developers, but it remains to be seen if the interest is there. It will cost you $399.
We all take our sight for granted and tend to forget how fortunate we are that we can experience an entire visual existence that those with no sight will never know. For the blind, content on the web is like a giant gaping void that they have no way of navigating. Monitors are useless for conveying info to the blind. They basically live in a different world just parallel to our own. One that we will never know.
Thanks to this Electronic Braille Reader that converts web content to Braille, the blind can finally get a taste of what we have been experiencing on the web. Check out a video below.
D-Link’s D-Life Web-Based Home Surveillance Cameras are making the rounds again. We first told you about them way back in July. Monitor any room in your house from anywhere over the Internet with these D-Life Web-based home surveillance cameras.
The D-Life is actually three products, the DHA-390 Surveillance Camera Starter Kit, an internet camera that connects to home network, the DHA-310 Expansion Kit and the DHA-330 video player, which is an internet camera viewer for monitoring all D-Life cameras connected to the network.
The Sony Cybershot G3 is a true first. It boasts direct web browsing from the camera via WiFi. The camera can upload photos and videos to Web sites through any public hotspot via its built-in Web browser. It comes with complimentary AT&T WiFi access to Sony’s Easy Upload Home Page all the way up until Jan. 31, 2012. It includes Wi-Fi access at thousands of AT&T hotspots across the United States, including participating coffee shops, some bookstores and quick-serve restaurant locations, plus hundreds of upscale hotels and airports. Some specs on the camera include a dedicated WLAN button, direct links to photo sharing sites like Shutterfly and Picasa Web Albums; video sharing sites like YouTube and Dailymotion.
The Sony Cybershot G3 also features a high-resolution 3.5-inch (921,600-dot) LCD screen, support for DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) guidelines, 10-megapixel sensor with 4x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, 4GB of built-in storage (optional expansion is Memory Stick only), and Intelligent Scene Recognition feature with Face Detection technology. Sounds pretty sweet to me.
The latest from Neuros is the Neuros LINK, which will let you watch videos from places like Hulu, YouTube and the like on your TV, subscription free, through courtesy of their own TV service. However, the LINK doesn’t appear to have any internal storage. It does boast six USB ports so you can attach your own drives that have photos, video or music. You’ll also get HDMI and optical S/PDIF outputs, a gigabit ethernet, 802.11b/g WiFi, and an included wireless “keymote” with trackball. The device is available now for $300, but it’s still in a “gamma release,” so early adopters can get one in exchange for a few bugs.
The Iocell Contents Phone looks pretty cool, but it has a big mouth, like that one friend of yours. It doesn’t keep things to itself, since it contains within it a hard disk which can be used for sending your conversations anywhere on the web.
Sure, it has an awesome look and will give you music on hold, record your conversations and play background music while you talk, but just remember, even if you don’t own one, the person you’re talking to might own one. In other words, be careful what you say from now on. Good looking phones are looking to snitch on you to the internets and hang you out to dry. From now on I’m just saying yeah, uh-huh and bye.
Google has announced that they will launch Friend Connect, a new service that will allow any site to be turned into a social network. No charge. Basically, Google wants to turn the internet into one huge, universal social profile. Google wanted to tap into the hundreds of millions of users that participate in social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace.
But when you’re Google, you don’t make a competing site and then see what happens, you launch a service that turns the internet itself into one humongous social networking platform which can be used by anyone, with no charge.
