I just watched the latest episode of Beyond Tomorrow, the Australian technology show, which featured the Rotasole. This innovative sport shoe will be able to massively reduce the number of sports injuries from twisting and turning one's feet in sports like basketball or tennis. The secret of the Rotasole is in the rotating disk in the middle of the sole which turns as you turn. This can minimise the stress on your ankle by some 30%. The Rotasole is already available.

Waking up is an ordeal and a challenge for most people. Being woken up before your body is ready can be a real trauma, particularly when using alarm clocks. There must be a better way…
My choice? A soft kiss on the forehead from my wife or a gentle reminder from the aXbo Sleep Phase Alarm Clock. Well, that's not really a choice, eh, but the aXbo has the advantage of knowing when it is the best time for my body to wake up.
This is how it works.
Since the release of the ATI's next generation X1000 series, ATI's graphics cards have brought higher and higher performance...more pipelines, higher clock speeds, etc. The enthusiasm for ATI's latest cards doesn't necessarily mean that the older X100 series cards are left in the dust. In fact, it means more affordable lower prices for the older generation.
Let's face it, not everyone can keep up with technology always. I've had my custom computer built less than 3 years ago and the switch from the AGP interface to PCI-Express passed so quickly that it makes my system seem old already. The good news is that there are still AGP versions of graphics cards available.
Today, I will be reviewing the Sapphire ATI Radeon X800 GTO. This product emphasizes overclocking on a budget. If you are still stuck with the older AGP interface and love to overclock, this card may be for you.
Forget that: the Pause by Design Mobel is nothing like that.
Avant-garde to the max, not just by design or by the inclusion of an iPod dock, but particularly by the use of native New Zealand timber.
The way the rimu timber is grown and harvested will make all Friends of the Forest proud and for AUD6000 you can sleep peacefully, knowing that your bank manager is the only one really worried…
Let’s face it: free calls are attractive.
Free long distance and international calls are very attractive.
And free and easy communications is the ultimate.
That’s where MPLAT’s FlashPhone shines: it’s a USB device that’s uses programs like Skype or Google Talk to make calls over the Internet. Even if you’re not on your own computer.
How easy is the FlashPhone to use and how clear are the conversations?
Let’s explore a Telco’s worst nightmare: free calls for everyone…
SLI Notebook on the Horizon?
A few week ago we published a news article about developments towards a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800GTX SLi Notebook. Today, we found this very interesting article at hardwarezone about MSI's implementation of SLI technology with MXM modules or better known as NVIDIA's GeForce GO Series. As you can see in the pictures below, MSI demonstrated this dual MXM prototype at CES in a desktop configuration but this development also shows how close we are to seeing this implemented in SLI notebooks:
Since I enjoy sound, you probably have noticed the many speaker reviews on the site. I'm always interested in the unique designs of speakers and of course in search for better sound. For PC users, the typical companies that come to mind when talking about multimedia speakers are Logitech, Creative, Altec Lansing, etc. Today, I present to you a speaker set that should not be left out: it is the Harman Kardon SoundSticks II.
LCD displays for the computer have come to the point where they are more affordable and are starting to become more common. Computer manufacturers now provide consumers with the option of choosing a CRT monitor or upgrading to an LCD display. When comparing LCD displays with CRT monitors, each have their unique features that tend to a user's preference. LCD displays are much thinner, lighter, and definitely more portable than a CRT monitor. CRT monitors on the other hand are much heavier, but are much cheaper.
Today, I will be reviewing the Samsung 910MP. Unlike most other LCD monitors, this is a multifunction monitor. Other than solely being an LCD monitor, this monitor has TV tuning capabilities so you can watch TV on it also without the need of an extra internal or external card or device. The 910MP manages to have the same Samsung LCD quality while providing the versatility of watching TV on the same monitor while saving overall desk space. Couple this with an 8ms pixel response time and you've got a fully-featured LCD monitor that can do gaming as well.
The LCD monitor came in an expected cardboard box with a handle. When opening the box on the side, everything was neatly packaged and well protected by the large layers of foam. The LCD layer lies in between the two foam layers. The included extra items are packaged on the sides of the box.
