Whispers of such a move have been going around for a while now, and now it's officially been confirmed that HTC will be dodging the issue of the OLED/AMOLED shortage by replacing the AMOLED display on the HTC Desire and the Nexus One with Super LCD (SLCD) displays. According to the Taiwanese company, the SLCD offers an exceptional natural balanced color, clear contrast, broad viewing angles, and improved power efficiency. Considering the recent shortages of HTC’s popular devices, the move to ditch the AMOLED displays since Samsung is having trouble keeping up with production might be a smart idea in the long term. Let's see how things work out in the long run, though it's also worth noting that the Desire and Nexus One aren't the latest phones on the block anymore.

Productivity tools might not be the first thing on your mind when you wake up in the morning, but if you've been thinking of about checking out the upcoming Office of Mac 2011 beta, you might want to keep an eye on your inbox as reports are going around that the invitations for the Office 2011 beta for OS X are being sent out, with the current build number being 100709. One of the more useful features of Office 2011 will be the ability for multiple document editing, as users will be able to edit the same document as the same time, without getting the read-only notice. The email invitation stated:
“The Office for Mac 2011 beta is closed to the public, which means ALL Office 2011 tools and features are confidential and proprietary to Microsoft. By participating in the beta, you consent to a non-disclosure agreement which includes all forms of communication including print, broadcast, electronic, Internet publications, social media networking sites, blogs, and verbal disclosure. The NDA will not lift until the product is public later this year. We will update on timing closer to the date.”

Some users who own certain Studio laptops might have reported a while back that there were CPU throttling issues, with some folks even noticing that under higher temperatures, the notebooks that would throttle the processor by up to 95 percent, reducing them to 100MHz speeds. A firmware update was issued to help resolve the issue, but now the company is offering to replace the stock 90 watt power adapters with more powerful 130 watt models. If users are keen to get hold of the upgraded power adapter, they're able to fill up a form online to request for it, and hopefully the newer adapter will help users avoid such issues.
In what is probably disturbing news to the folks over at RIM, government officials have stated that the smartphone services of the BlackBerry could pose a security threat to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The concern behind this is how the data on the network is managed and stored, not to mention that it's all kept outside of the Emirates. According to the government statement, certain BlackBerry applications allow folks to misuse the service, causing serious social, judicial, and notional security repercussions. It's worth a mention that RIM uses a high level of encryption on its data transfer, which many users find attractive, though some governments may view it as a problem and a method to circumvent security forces.

A company called Amimon Inc from Israel, has come up with a prototype system that is capable of transmitting 3D high-definition video using the WHDI (wireless high-definition interface) standard on the 5GHz band. In a recent demonstration, they were able to transmit 1080p 3D video over the 5GHz wireless band while maintaining a frame rate of 24fps. The system is planned to be applied to devices that can wirelessly connect to LCD TVs and Blu-ray disc recorders that will support 3D video. It's interesting to see how it'll perform for most users, as there are concerns about the theory that 3D video is supposedly twice as big as conventional video (since there are 2 pictures). The company has apparently already completed the reference design of a wireless adapter that can transmit 3D video, and the adapter will be released as soon as the logo for the chassis is already.
