The entire LG ET83 Touch 10 monitor measures 23? across diagonally, and you can use all ten of your fingers on it simultaneously, making it the ideal choice for folks who want to enjoy an enhanced touch computing experience without having to perform a complete and total overhaul/upgrade.
Tablet and smartphone owners ought to be able to take to the Touch 10 monitor like a duck to water, and would even feel as though their smartphones do not offer enough in the long run. After all, majority of touchscreens out there use a two-finger recognition system, but the LG Touch 10 monitor increases that amount fivefold.
The LG ET83 Touch 10 monitor will arrive in South Korea from November onwards, before it is introduced in Europe and the rest of the world.

While I find it nigh impossible to believe that leaving a typewriter in the room with a bunch of monkeys would eventually see one of the Bard?s sonnets typed out (an experiment was run in the past to debunk such an idea), it is not too hard to see us humans are extremely intelligent compared to primates. For instance, when you leave OLPCs with a bunch of Ethiopian kids without any knowledge of it, all it took was just 5 months to hack the device. Hack, as in circumventing security measures of the operating system to customize settings while activating disabled hardware.
The OLPCs in question here are actually Motorola Xoom tablets that are powered by solar chargers while running on custom software, given to kids in schools. Each of these Xooms came pre-loaded with a custom English-language operating system and SD cards with tracking software, and it was discovered that within a time period of five months, they managed to hacked Android, so to speak. After all, someone disabled the camera, and the kids realized that the Xoom came with a camera and decided to just make it work.
It is stories like these that bring a tear to my eye. More empowerment and knowledge to these kids who thoroughly deserved the OLPC project – and more!By Ubergizmo.

It seems that the folks over at the FCC are pretty busy, and this time around, they have to spend their time going through just what the HP ElitePad 900 is capable of offering, and since it has already arrived at the doorsteps of the FCC, it goes to show that the chances of the HP ElitePad 900 hitting the mass market has increased by a whole lot. The particular HP ElitePad 900 model that we are talking about here is a 3G version which targets road warriors, sporting the 850MHz, 1,700MHz and 1,900MHz bands that will play nice with AT&T, T-Mobile and Canadian networks.
Do not expect a rabbit or any other creature to pop out from the proverbial magician?s hat here, as there is an indication that NFC support is thrown into the mix amidst dual-band 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options. At least this adds yet another option to folks who want more offerings in the enterprise tablet market in the coming year.By Ubergizmo.

The iPhone 5, touted to be the best iPhone yet, has just cleared the final hurdles that are in place before it is able to hit the China market. The latest iPhone model is compatible with the two largest networks in that part of the world, namely the GSM and CDMA networks. No idea on whether Apple will now take the big step of selling their iPhone in the world?s most populous country, but we would not rule it out that the iPhone 5 should pop up on China Unicom’s GSM network in due time. After all, with a CDMA (called the A1442 on a chart provided by Sina) and a GSM (A1429) model have both been approved, opening up the door for China Telecom to make millions of dollars along the way as well.
Right now, the most recent iPhone model in China (barring Hong Kong, of course) is still the iPhone 4S, so hopefully with the latest set of approvals, the iPhone 5 will be able to make its sales mark in China before 2013 rolls around. It would definitely make for a decent Lunar New Year present if you?re into that sort of thing.By Ubergizmo.

Sandy was definitely an unwanted visitor on the East Coast, but the tenacity of the human spirit continues to prevail over natural disasters. As for cell towers, those did not fare too well, as Sandy knocked out approximately 25% of cell towers across an area that spread across 10 states in the US. Federal regulators said that this is not all, as the entire situation could end up a whole lot worse sometime down the road.
The remaining cell towers that still function are barely working, thanks to aid from generators. The situation could change for the worse as the generators eventually run out of fuel before commercial power is restored, at least according to the Federal Communications Commission. Good thing the landline phone network (logically) held up better where Sandy made her mark, in a land area that stretches from Virginia to Massachusetts. No idea on the number for folks who are affected by 25% of the cell towers going down, but let us keep our fingers crossed and whisper a prayer that whatever could be done was done, leaving the rest to fate.By Ubergizmo.

Whenever a particular device or consumer electronics arrive at the FCC, you know for sure that it is being primed for a general release to the masses, and the same can be said for the Dell XPS 10. Having arrived at the doorsteps of the FCC today, complete with its user manual as well as photos of the 10? tablet?s case and internal components, we do look forward to the day where the Dell XPS 10?s product page appears for the masses to take advantage of – after parting with their fair share of dollars and cents, of course.
For starters, the Dell XPS 10 is a 10? tablet that will carry a 1366 x 768 pixel display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, have up to 64GB RAM, sports both front and rear cameras, has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. It will run on the Windows RT platform, which is actually Windows 8 for devices that have ARM-based processors underneath the hood, so kiss goodbye to backwards compatibility of older apps which run on Windows 7 and before.Ubergizmo.

Being in the military – especially if you are in the higher ranks, would make you privy to some of the more unusual devices that do make you wonder whether you are living in a science fiction world. This time around, researchers are exploring the possibility of a new kind of fabric that will see action in military uniforms, sporting pores to keep soldiers cool. This will be a smart uniform of sorts, as it can quickly shut its pores whenever it detects the presence of harmful chemicals in the vicinity. Sorta like a prototype of the alien symbiote that Spiderman and Venom ?wore? in the comics.
Francesco Fornasiero, a chemical engineer at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, said, ?Without the need of an external control system, the fabric will be able to switch reversibly from a highly breathable state to a protective one in response to the presence of the environmental threat. In the protective state, the uniform will block the chemical threat while maintaining a good breathability level.?
It will take some time before such uniforms are combat ready, as researchers have only managed to make small pieces of one layer of the proposed fabric. Such futuristic material could eventually take up to a decade to be ready for action on the battlefield, so treading on the cautious side of things would still be the order of the day at the moment.By Ubergizmo.

You know what they say – a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and in the case of the US military with their vaunted army of Predator and Reaper drones, it was discovered that our men and women in uniform have failed to secure the transmissions of more than 50% of their drone fleet – this bit of information coming about four years after discovering that militants were already tapping its drone video feeds. Back in 2008, a Shiite militant was apprehended after his laptop carried files of intercepted drone video feeds, where the Pentagon then pledged to retrofit their collection of drones with spanking new communications protocols and encrypted transceivers to avoid interceptions.
Four years down the road, it could be oversight, or complacency, that saw only ?30-50%? of America?s Predators and Reapers are running on fully encrypted transmissions. As for the rest of the fleet, its communications will be completely secure until 2014. Do you think that this is a foolhardy decision, or could it be due to the lack of sufficient funds to make sure that all their drones are fully secure and encrypted?By Ubergizmo.

Honda, one of the larger automobile manufacturers in the world, has just rolled out a new model that targets ladies, calling it the Honda Fit She?s. Available only in Japan at this point in time with no word on whether the rest of the world will be able to receive this compact ride, the Honda Fit She?s will target nearly 50% of Japanese women who decided to remain out of the work force. According to Honda?s designers, this version of the Honda Fit will be cute enough for adults, sporting a pink exterior, pink stitching on the interior, and shiny pink chrome covers on the dashboard. It would take a whole lot for most males to drive this to work for sure. Heck, even a heart replaces the apostrophe in ?She?s? in order to underline Honda?s seriousness to the commitment.
Good thing you can also choose from brown and white if you are a lady who does not like pink – at least brown and white can help complement your eye shadow color, no? Aesthetics are not the only thing with the Honda Fit She?s, as it sports a new kind of windshield which is touted to block up to 99% of UV rays, helping reduce the chances of attaining wrinkles whenever you drive during the daytime. There is also a Plasmacluster AC system that treats the air quality, supposedly improving one?s skin quality as you drive.By Ubergizmo.
