After making a short appearance at the FCC, and getting an early reveal by retailer J&R last week, Sony’s PRS-T2 eRader is now officially launched. Priced at $129, this is an eReader that aims at a crowd who want a no-nonsense device and prefer e-Paper to LCD displays. The extremely long battery life and the overall compactness and light weight are also part of the “must-have” features for those users.
Sony has updated the user interface, but overall, it remains similar to many such “high-end” eReaders, so it’s simple and straightforward. Surprisingly, it comes with Evernote (a web information storage service) support in case you want to select (with finger gestures or stylus) and preserve clips for later use. The PRS-T2 uses WIFI for all internet communications and there is no cellular functionality.
In addition to uploading books in open formats, readers can also borrow digital books from select public libraries (15000 according to Sony). Obviously, users can also buy the books from Sony’s Reader Store, which is now completely web-based (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari), so there is no software installation involved.By Ubergizmo.

Back in December of 2011, EA officially announced Command & Conquer: Generals 2 that will be seeing a release in 2013. The upcoming game will be powered by DICE?s Frostbite 2 engine and the good news (or bad news depending on how you look at it) is that EA has announced that the game will be adopting the free-to-play model. According to the official statement released by EA: (more…)By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Star Wars: The Old Republic adds free-to-play option, EA believes that the freemium model is the future,
It is no secret that Crytek?s Crysis franchise has been pretty demanding when it comes to computer hardware requirements, and while the game is playable even on its lowest settings, what gamer can say no to the ability to set the game on ultra and enjoy it as it was meant to be? That being said, the upcoming Crysis 3 should be no different from its predecessors and we expect it will be just as demanding but just as visually astounding, if not more so. Crytek?s boss, Cevat Yerli, seems to think so as well and was quoted during an EA Livestream as saying, ?That joke will be resurrected again with Crysis 3, I?m quite sure about that [?] There are brutal expectations around the PC version of Crysis 3. So this time we promise to melt down PCs.? So gamers are you prepared to have your PCs melted, or do you have a new and awesome monstrous gaming rig planned out for the upcoming game?By Ubergizmo.

In a recently published patent, it has been revealed that Apple could be (or was) looking into the idea of illuminated touchpads. This patent could be applied to existing MacBooks or the Magic Trackpad peripheral, and it basically illuminates the touchpad in relation to how it is being used. If you?ve used a MacBook or the Magic Trackpad before, or even the Magic Mouse, you?re probably aware that you are able to perform a variety of multi-touch gestures on it. This includes finger movements to scroll, zoom in, zoom out, move objects, and etc. Apple?s patent, dubbed the ?Illuminated Touchpad?, has been described as a means to “give other feedback related to how the touch pad is being used.”
Basically what this means is that if you were to use the touchpad as a cursor, it might illuminate in a certain way, while if you were to use two fingers with it for scrolling, it might light up in a different way. We expect this might come in handy for those times when you thought you had performed a certain gesture when in reality the touchpad might not have registered it. Given that this is a patent, it?s hard to say if Apple has plans to use it in their products in the future, or if it is merely an idea they?re sitting on that may never come to fruition, but what do you think? Does the idea of an illuminated touchpad sound appealing to you?By Ubergizmo.

A week ago we reported that according to SamMobile, rumor had it that the Samsung Galaxy S2 among other Samsung devices would be receiving the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Well the folks at SamMobile are back again and this time according to one of their sources, they have ?confirmed? that the Galaxy S2 will indeed receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update and that Samsung is currently in the process of testing it. They also expect that the update should roll out in the September-October timeframe. However given that there has been no official confirmation from Samsung themselves, we suggest that you not get your hopes up just yet in order to avoid disappointment. In the meantime for Galaxy S3 owners, the update is indeed real and a leaked version of the test firmware can be download, albeit at your own risk although the full and final version is rumored for an August 29th release. In any case we suggest you take this with a grain of salt and remember, seeing is believing! Be sure to check back with us at a later date for more info.By Ubergizmo.

While some think bike helmets are cool, there are others who worry about how it will mess with their hair and overall fashion. If you fall into the latter category, you might recall that a couple of years ago we reported on the H?vding inflatable bike helmet. In case you missed it and have no clue what we?re talking about, the H?vding is an inflatable bike helmet that you wear around your collar and will only activate and form a protective helmet around your head in the event of an accident. Otherwise it remains hidden in your collar which is why some consider it to be ?invisible?, therefore solving the problem of helmet hair. (more…)By Ubergizmo.
