Read more: Asus Xonar U1 USB External Audio ProcessorThese days it is easy to get systems with integrated almost everything. 

Whilst this is great for a standard user but it is hardly a match in performance compared to a custom build one. 

Asus is set to launch the Xonar U1 External Audio Processor in six colours with a promise to "improve the laptop or PC's underachieving audio", as stated in their press release.

 

Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver Data Logger Announced

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Industry News

Read more: Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver Data Logger AnnouncedAnother day, another GPS receiver manufacturer, rebrander, it seems.

Ever heard of the name Gosget?  Me neither. 

There is no excuse for ignorance so we looked up some details for you. 

 

The brand is being launched by SeeYou.com in Taiwan but their website doesn't seem to be operational yet.  They are launching three Bluetooth GPS receivers:
Gosget MB-588 Bluetooth GPS receiver
Gosget MB-688L Bluetooth GPS receiver + Data Logger
Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS receiver + Data Logger.


A couple of the units look very much like some of the Qstarz receivers that we recently reviewed (Travel Recorder) and it also seems another reincarnation of the i-Blue range, like the 737 and 747.

You can find the details of the solar unit below.

Read more:  Canovo Dual-TouchScreen Tablet/NotebookYou might remember the very innovative Canovo Dual-TouchScreen Tablet/Notebook that was reported on recently.
Innovative because the keyboard has been replaced by another touchscreen! There are some obvious great advantages to this (and some minor problems as well). Think of truly being able to customise your keyboard for every task and having double the screen size when needed!
Well, we have some more info on this concept machine.
I spoke with Valerio Cometti, managing director of V12 Design in Milano, Italy.
This is what he said:

Read more: The Rotasole: Revolutionary Turning Sport ShoeI 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.

Read more: e Pause: eco-friendly bed with iPod Dock and Bose SystemRemember the old beds with built-in radio/alarm clock?

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…
