New Dual Core Atom/ION 2 Netbooks Are Here

It's here: an electrical thrifty, high performance dual core Intel Atom processor paired with a high performance, second generation, Nvidia ION 2 GPU packed in a little netbook.

The Intel z550 dual core Atom chip runs at 1.5 GHz and supports DDR3 memory. It must make multitasking on your own netbook easier. The Nvidia ION 2 chip is suited for playing HD video and improved gaming.

The ASUS Eee PC 1015N may house these chipsets first, expected in September for $399 in the U.S. The 10-inch 1015N looks interesting, but check for the ASUS' 12.1-inch Eee PC VX6 with Lamborghini styling.

Network Connection for Connected TVs plus more

When you pick up a connected HDTV, Blu-ray player, or AVR receiver, and it needs a high-speed Internet connection, however the wireless router is too far, you should consider the Western Digital device referred to as Livewire Powerline AV Network Kit as a solution. They claim to deliver 200Mbps with this $140 kit; it just plugs into the wall plug, the router, plus your devices. Just stay away from using electronically noisy devices like hair dryers, which may cause interference. news gadget

End from the SED Era

On August 18, 2010 Canon announced it was closing down SED Inc, a subsidiary of Canon which had been developing Surface-condition Electron-emitter Displays (SED). Thinking about a super skinny TV with all the current great qualities of the CRT like great color, deep blacks and big viewing angles was attractive. As opposed to one beam coming from the long neck of an CRT, an SED might have thousands of individual guns striking phosphors directly looking at them. Unfortunately, it may sound like there were too many obstacles to overcome to produce a commercially viable TV from the technology. There's hope for similar TV technology (FED) using carbon nanotubes as electron emitters, so that all may not be lost.
