We all know what a panoramic picture is and we like it because we can see more details in a single shot. Well, if you want a something more closely to the real thing, you should search for 360 degrees pictures.
The guys from AirPano are doing an amazing job; they are not only extremely creative but also truly artists. I invite you to see 20 of their incredible panoramas.

The other day we heard that Logitech had decided to cancel their Google TV set top boxes, the Logitech Revue, but it would appear that other companies are still interested in developing devices with the Google TV platform.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg, LG will be showing off their first Google TV enabled devices at CES 2012 in January, and they are expected to unveil a new TV set with Google TV built in.
It would appear that LG and other companies are now more interested in Google TV due to the recent release of the new Google TV software, which features a simpler and more user friendly interface.
It looks like Google’s Music Store could possibly be announced this week, as Google has sent out invites to a special event on the 16th of November, and the event is reportedly related to Google’s new music service and their music store.
We have been hearing a lot about Google’s Music Store over the last few weeks, and Google recently said that their music store would feature a ‘twist’, although we don’t exactly know what the twist involves as yet.
It isn’t clear as yet exactly how Google’s music store will work, hopefully we should have some more information on Wednesday after the official announcement.

Vi avevamo promesso ulteriori aggiornamenti a riguardo, e ve li comunichiamo prontamente. Dopo il rilascio di iOS 5.0.1, tutti gli utenti si aspettavano una soluzione definitiva al problema di eccessivo consumo della batteria, che affligge soprattutto i possessori di iPhone 4S, sin dal rilascio del terminale. Dopo avervi proposto una parziale soluzione e dopo che il rilascio dell’aggiornamento non sembra aver risolto a tutti il problema, vediamo come si esprime Apple a riguardo.
Il primo update della release 5 di iOS è arrivato in questi giorni, con la promessa di risolvere diversi problemi, tra cui quello della scarsa resa della batteria, soprattutto su iPhone 4S, la quale per risolverla Apple stava lavorando alacremente a stretto contatto con gli utenti.Tuttavia, nonostante l’aggiornamento alla versione 5.0.1, molti utenti hanno continuato a lamentare problemi significativi con la durata della batteria dei loro dispositivi iOS, vanificando, per il momento, lo sforzo del team di sviluppo di Apple, che ha cercato di risolvere il problema (che per molti è di tipo software) a tempo di record.
Parlando con AllThingsD, alcuni rappresentanti di Apple hanno affermato che l’azienda di Cupertino continuerà senza sosta ad indagare sui problemi e le lamentele di scarsa durata della batteria, al fine di individuare la causa precisa del problema e, quindi, di risolverlo nel più breve tempo possibile.
Al momento non è ancora nota la data del rilascio di un prossimo update di iOS, ma siamo sicuri che, a breve, Apple lo rilascerà sia per risolvere il problema appena discusso, sia per migliorare altri aspetti di iOS 5 su cui si notano ancora leggere imperfezioni.
Chinese mobile customers face a similar dilemma as their American counterparts: they have to choose either China Unicom’s WCDMA network, China Telecom’s CDMA2000 network or China Mobile’s more obscure TD-SCDMA offering. Needless to say, this can be a real headache for phone fanatics stuck on a carrier that doesn’t support their desired devices, unless they don’t mind surfing the web on 2G radio (if compatible at all). Luckily, nowadays Motorola tends to take good care of all potential Chinese customers whenever it rolls out a new Android phone, including the Droid RAZR (aka XT910, pictured right) in this case. Read on to find out what these two new phones are about.
Review enough Ultrabooks and you’ll start to wrestle with this idea of value. We’ve seen cheap ones that don’t perform well and expensive ones that do. Things get really dicey when you throw in machines that cost a bit less, look good and perform well, but are nonetheless flawed in some key way — like having a sticky keyboard or a trackpad with a mind of its own.
For more than a week now we’ve been testing the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s and, at the risk of spoiling this review altogether, it’s made it even tougher for us to stack up one imperfect Ultrabook against another. What to do with a well-made, speed demon of a machine that boots in less than 20 seconds but starts at $1,095 without an SD slot, high-res display or backlit keyboard? Are the U300s’ stately looks, brisk performance and sound ergonomics enough to make up for a handful of absent features? Find the answers to that and more in our full review after the break.
This year’s Milan International Motorcycle Show is definitely featuring a healthy assortment of battery-powered two wheeled machines, and now Evolve Motorcycles has two more plug-in designs to add to the list. First up is its Xenon, aka the Tron Lightcycle replica, which is a real bike that you can purchase 32-inch hubless rims, OLED light tape and all for $50,000. It’s even claiming a top speed of 100mph with a 100 mile range on its custom lithium ion battery system, so all you have left to do is regret not grabbing one for $35k on eBay last year. The Lithium however, chooses to keep things more conventional as a streetfighter concept built around a 54hp electric motor that is expected to cost around $20,000 when it actually goes on sale. Check after the break for a pic of the Lithium, or head over to our friends at Autoblog Green for a gallery full of eyecandy featuring both bikes.
