Heart attacks are scary – you can never know when one might hit you squarely in the chest. The AngelMed Guardian intends to circumvent this potentially fatal situation by warning you beforehand thanks to a self-monitoring alert mode. The downside to it? You will need to be carved open first, as this is an implantable medical device. To make sure the AngelMed Guardian gets the message across, it will alert you through a combination of vibrations, audible tones and visual warnings, and in theory, it should be far more effective than implantable heart defibrillators.

Datawind has run out of patience with Hyderabad-based vendor Quad Electronics, as the latter has failed to deliver the Android 4.0-powered Aakash tablet as promised, resulting in the Aakash tablet being a fortnight behind schedule where deliveries for retail sales are concerned. Having ended their working relationship with Quad Electronics in January, Datawind chief executive Suneet Singh Tuli mentioned that Quad Electronics breached Datawind’s intellectual property rights, saying, “Quad circumvented our relationship with IIT-Rajasthan, signed a direct memorandum of understanding with them and then sold off its inventory in the open market.” Datawind is currently looking for new manufacturing partners, although no deal has been finalized to date.

Just because one rides a bicycle does not mean he or she is not allowed to have the privilege of using a hands-free kit with their smartphone. The Cardo BK-1 is one such device, where it is touted to be the world’s first Bluetooth communication and entertainment system which was specially developed for cyclists. It can be installed in just about any bicycle helmet within minutes, and the Cardo BK-1 will be able to offer voice-activated, two-way or three-way bike-to-bike communication capabilities. When you and your cycling mates want to communicate with one another across a distance (of no more than 1,600 feet), there is no need to shout and waste more energy – all you need to do is just speak into the BK-1 and the message gets sent across crystal clear.

At Nintendo?s last investor presentation in January, the historic game company revealed that it was working on a new 2D Mario adventure game for the 3DS.

Now it seems that that information has taken a turn for the better with the company registering the domain named ?supermario4.com?. Reports stated that a search regarding the domain indicated that it was owned by Nintendo of America and also when the domain is typed out, users will be re-directed to Nintendo?s own website.

Intel has just announced its Intel SSD 330 Series, a line of SSD (solid state drives) aimed at those who seek a good performance/price ratio. Drives will be produced with capacities of 60GB ($89), 120GB ($149) and 180GB ($234). It is no secret that solid state drives can boost perceived performance tremendously, but their relative high price can be intimidating. Starting at $1.25 per GB, the SSD 330 Series comes with low capacities which opens the SSD market to those who seek high-performance, without caring much for high-capacity, or to those who have always wanted to build a RAID array to get an extremely high throughput, without breaking the bank. This could also be a great update for an aging laptop. (more…)By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Intel SSD 910 is PCI-based and impressive, Intel SSD 520 Series Review,
