As anticipated, the new device announced by Amazon this morning is the Kindle Paperwhite which seems to fit snugly onto the palm of your hand without running the risk of it slipping. Amazon claims that the Kindle Paperwhite has 62% more pixels and 25% more contrast than its predecessor where its capacitive touchscreen display is concerned. The new buzzword introduced this time around would be “Nanoimprinted Light Guide” which is incorporated into this frontlit device, allowing light to travel down the screen in the same vein as ambient light. The result? Easier reading on your eyes, not to mention better battery life.
We are looking at 8 weeks of battery life with the light on, where the Kindle Paperwhite measures a mere 9.1mm thin while tipping the scales at 7.5 ounces. It sports a user interface that is reminiscent of the Kindle Fire, making a transition easier I presume for those who want to jump aboard the Paperwhite bandwagon. I guess 4 years of research and development ought to yield something impressive, and the Kindle Paperwhite does seem to live up to expectations at the moment.
You are able to change the font size on-the-fly via a pinch and zoom technique. It remains to be seen whether users will take to the touchscreen user interface, but I guess not many will be dragged in that direction kicking and screaming, with all the touchscreen devices we own these days.
There are some interesting features in Kindle Paperwhite, and X-Ray is one of them, letting you check out just how many pages you have left to “digitize” what we take for granted with a normal paperback.
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite will ship from October 1st onwards, retailing for $119 a pop. Those who want the Kindle Paperwhite 3G version will have to fork out $179 for it.

It is well known that Apple does not comment on rumors, but it was reported that an Apple executive allegedly denied an iTV rollout in the near future sometime last month. Well, you know how important it is to back up a story with facts, so here we are with whispers of a new report that also suggested the same thing. Bloomberg claimed that “a person familiar with [Apple's] plans” shared on how negotiations with media companies and cable providers seem to run into stumbling blocks, where among them include “a tussle for control over the software that determines the screen interface.”
To put it in a nutshell, Apple does not see eye to eye with media providers concerning on how the actual user experience is like, which does seem to offer some spine to our August story concerning the denial of any iTV or Apple TV rollout for this year at least. Knowing Apple, they would most probably be loathe to lease their set-top box via cable providers, and will instead prefer to sell it directly to users. Patience will reveal the clouded future for sure.By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Apple TV jailbreak available from Seas0nPass, and it is untethered, Rumor: Apple to acquire Loewe AG,
It is a widespread belief that when September 12th rolls around, the next generation iPhone, which some call the iPhone 5, would have been announced already. Well, assuming that happens, it would also signal the end of the road for the aged iPhone 3GS, making the 8GB model of the iPhone 4 as the entry-level iPhone which in all probability, will be handed to customers for free on £20 monthly contracts, taking over where the iPhone 3GS left off.
There is also speculation that an 8GB iPhone 4S might just be introduced as well which would not sound all that out of this world. Well, everything here remains as speculation for the moment, so we will know for sure as we nudge slowly but surely towards the end of the second week of September. Would you miss the iPhone 3GS if it were removed? It remains to be seen whether other markets might follow suit when the new iPhone arrives.By Ubergizmo.

The next time you grab the humble toothbrush to keep your pearly whites nice and clean, do remember that it is not only capable of putting tartar and plaque issues at bay, but with a little bit of ingenuity, a couple of astronauts managed to replaced a vital power unit on the International Space Station today with the help of a toothbrush. Of course, the toothbrush was not the only exclusive repair tool, but rather, the sum of a whole, but it is definitely the most unique tool out there thanks to a little innovation and improvisation.
NASA astronaut Sunita Williams and Japanese spaceflyer Akihiko Hoshide were the ones who performed this spacewalk repair with a toothbrush to help them out along the way. Certainly there should be some McGyver blood running through the veins of those astronauts, don?t you think so? I for one, will never look at my toothbrush in the same way ever again.By Ubergizmo.

Cockroaches are usually disregarded as the utterly useless creatures which are no good and attract a severe feeling of aversion at their very sight. However, this may change as these little things gear up for some tech adventure.
Researchers at North Carolina State university have been trying to ?control? a cockroach?s movements. And they have succeeded by fitting one with a microcontroller. The idea is to make a cockroach go along a specific path, something which may eventually lead to more useful applications such as carrying a tiny camera on top of its head to a specific location.
