If you have spent time in the recent rain as many of us, you recognize the value of waterproof clothing. And Fujitsu Tab F-01D flight arrows tablet it is too, packing a 10.1-inch WXGA, TI IMAP4430 1GHz dual-core processor, and Android 3.2 Honeycomb – all in a single box, waterproof. The yet-to-be-announced device is rumored to be launching on Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo in September, and may include UMTS, HSPA and LTE connectivity with GSM and GPRS roaming compatibility abroad. There is also a pair of CMOS cameras, 16GB of onboard storage, micro-USB connector for standard headphones (with waterproof covers, we assume), and a microSD card slot. We have not received word on price right away, or whether the device can survive the deep diving or just occasional splashes, but if oddly named tab arrows is foreseen to start at Japan next month, we imagine these details are bubbling to the surface every day now.
Spoiler alert! Instead of waiting to surprise people at IFA this week, LG has unveiled details of its new 3D game Converter for the 3D Optimus earlier. The software comes as part of the maintenance release in October, promising to take any OpenGL game that turns into the landscape and convert it into 3D. About 50 games will come with pre-optimized settings – you twist the rest. Open any game in the application and it will try to divide the foreground and background and recombine both in 3D. Feel your eyes of passage and a set of headaches just by thinking about playing this way? No worries, they are all still playable in 2D as well. Mouse over past the break to find the press release that without thinking, LG has released rather than 2D.

But, he adds, the decision actually encouraged the development of small revolutionary upheavals at the local level where the interaction face-to-face between the militants was more intense and the mobilization of dormant warm dissidents was easier. In other words, the closure of the Internet have made the revolution more diffuse and more difficult for the authorities to contain.

At the International Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam yesterday, Adobe has unveiled a slew of new software solutions, including Adobe Pass, Flash Access 3.0 and Flash Media Server 4.5. Pass allows cable operators and other content providers to offer TV streaming from multiple sources through a single connection solution, while access is the platform for content protection, which can now offer streaming video to mobile devices . But it’s Media Server 4.5 that has been gathering the most attention of the press, through its support for IOS. Now do not get too excited, you still can not really use flash on your iPhone. But the latest version of the software provides the ability to stream video using the Apple-friendly format HTTP Streaming Live. So still no Kongregate for iPhone users, but partners can now put as MediaPlatform live webcasts on your iPhone. Check the PR after the break.

Because not only the disclosure (which is not yet known if it’s real) on the possible sizes ranging Google TV, but the names have emerged, which is called the models in question.
Their names are: NSX-24GT1 24 inches, 31 inches NSX-32GT1, NSX, NSX-40GT1 46GT1 40 inches, (yes, you guessed it) by 46 inches. However, they also risk that their prices would total between 1300, 1400 and 1900 dollars.

A few days ago, the blog Opposable Bravo published an article entitled, In the game, everything is incredible, but nobody is happy. The thrust of the article is that the discussion of the modern games focuses almost exclusively of defects, which are often out of proportion. Every game is too short, even if we never finish the games we play. Each game is too expensive, even if we demand ever more levels of interaction, fidelity graphics, and length. The same people who say every game was 80 hours and a masterpiece 10 years ago are 10 years away from that today was the golden age once they have distance necessary to scrub the bad games from memory. Today, the gaming site Rock, Paper, Shotgun offers a counterpoint, saying that video games require active criticism of the industry for improvement. It is incredible, and sometimes people are happy. That’s how it always will be. And we should probably do more of it, and then try to do better.

However, this proportion is significantly lower than that of the United States, where three-quarters of the equity deal is computer generated. Foresight panel, headed by Dame Clara Furse, the former CEO of the London Stock Exchange, argued that there are benefits and risks for serious algorithmic trading. There was no direct evidence that the negotiation of computer itself increased volatility, he said, but in specific circumstances, it was possible for a series of events with unwanted interactions and the results to produce and cause enormous damage.

Calculating the SPF may mask brief moments of stuttering noticeable that only a closer examination of individual frame time can be quantified. This article explores the topic in much more detail. Along the way, it also illustrates effectively micro-stuttering attributed to multi-GPU solutions like SLI and CrossFire. AMD and Nvidia two concede that stuttering is a real problem for modern graphics cards, and methods of analysis may need to change well into account.
Proposed new story written CSHARP123 Microsoft has released details of a Windows feature that 8 is a hybrid between a cold start and wake up a hibernating state This function is called Quick Start mode Gabe Aul, director of management Programs in Windows, says ..: [A] s in Windows 7, we close user sessions, but instead of closing the session of the nucleus, we hibernate. Compared to full hibernation, which includes a large number of pages memory used by applications, session data hibernation is much smaller 0, which takes much less time to write to disk. If you are not familiar with hibernation, we actually save the system status and memory contents in a file on disk (hiberfil.sys), then reading that back in the CV and restore contents back to memory. Using this technique with boot gives us a significant advantage for startup times, since reading hiberfile in and reset the driver is much faster on most systems (30-70% faster on most systems we’ve tested). The message contains a video as well , which shows the Windows startup in less than 10 seconds.

The copper wire is relatively cheap, malleable and can conduct electricity, but it is far from ideal. Feed the cities requires meters wide and cables, the metal loses a lot of energy as heat. Fortunately, a team of Tel Aviv University think it solved the problem. Take a sapphire fiber Oakridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, he developed a superconducting wire barely thicker than a human hair, which makes 40 times the electricity of his brothers copper. Cooled with liquid nitrogen, superconductors carry current without sapphire heat, which is the key to their effectiveness. The team working on practical applications of the technology – because it is so small and flexible (unlike previous superconductors), it could replace the copper in the home and its cold performance makes it perfect to transmit power to long distances from the stations to green power. The wire goes around the world as we speak and will arise at the conference in Baltimore in October ATSC. Anyone who makes jokes about son and Baltimore will be asked to leave politely.

The interesting thing though is that the 6600 has space for three drives: two full size and mini-card slot. This means you could fit this beast of 17.3 inches with a pair of 512 GB SSD and a 128GB SSD for a total of 1.1TB of storage in solid form.

Think it’s time to change our patent system ? It is the Congress. Yesterday, the Senate approved the Act on America invented by a 89-8 vote that could make more drastic changes in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in five decades. Under the plan, the House approved in June, patents are not awarded to the first person to invent a technology, but the first to actually file with the USPTO, bringing U.S. policy in line with the protocol adopted in most other countries. It also calls for a simplified application process and would allow the USPTO to charge fees set for all applications. Revenues generated by these fees would go directly to a maximum reserve fund, which keeps the office of the lion’s share of the money instead to channel a large part in the Congress, as was the norm.
Proponents say the extra revenue will give the USPTO more power to nibble the delay of about 700,000 patent applications, while a new system will help eliminate third challenge patents that would never have approved of the first place. Opponents, meanwhile, criticized the bill for not eliminate diversion at all costs (an amendment that would have placed tighter restrictions was finally killed, for fear it would jeopardize the passage of the proposed law), with Washington Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell questioning the impact of legislation on small business, calling it a great gift company patents that tramples on the rights of small inventors. But Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat Vermont, which sponsored the project, argued that approval yesterday marks a major turning point in history and U.S. Patent Policy:
Creativity that drives our economic engine has made America the world leader in invention and innovation. America invented legislation will ensure that inventors, large and small to maintain the competitive advantage that has put America at the height of global innovation. This is landmark legislation. It is good policy.
America invented law will now make its way to the office of President Obama, which is expected to receive his signature. For more information on legislation, see the links below.

Using GPS on your phone to guide you through the city streets can sometimes be a painful experience, especially in hot spots of the signal (or when there is a breeze). Fortunately, there is a fantasy novel solution – for some of you at least. Position fidelity is an application specifically for Samsung Mango phones that supercharges the GPS module with two updates to help position. The first uses the onboard accelerometer and compass to help guide the device Windows 7 itself on congested city streets. The second is that it will now access GLONASS – the Russian equivalent of GPS – find your position a few feet. Once installed, the app is only visible in the settings menu, where you need to activate it. We can also expect to see more GLONASS in the future, since the Russian import taxes imposing about 25 percent on any device that is incompatible with the standard Soviet and manufacturers do not want to take a blow of this magnitude on a characteristic that they can use.
