Samsung ha presentato alcune novità davvero entusiasmanti. Le nuove Smart TV, infatti, diventeranno una sorta di centro digitale nel quale far confluire smartphone e tablet di ultima generazione. Tra le tante tecnologie presenti, spicca Mobile High-Definition Link, che permette di vedere sullo schermo TV ciò che vediamo anche sui nostri device.
La nuova gamma Visual Display è davvero ricca di novità interessanti. Oltre alla già citata MHL, troviamo anche la funzionalità Mobile Control e la compatibilità WiDi. Il tutto per consentire all’utente di godere a pieno della mobilità senza rinunciare alla comodità del grande schermo.
Si va dall’HDTV monitor Serie 7 (TB750) ai monitor PC e TV Serie 5 (S/TB550), fino alla Smart Station Serie 7 (CB750). Tanti modelli pronti per comunicare con l’utente al fine di migliorare l’esperienza d’uso. Grazie alla tecnologia MHL, tutti questi prodotti permettono di guardare in maniera fluida e veloce foto e video in TV.
Il monitor HDTV Samsung Serie 7 (TB750) da 27” è probabilmente il pezzo forte. Si differenzia per il design asimmetrico e per i colori eleganti in pieno stile Samsung. Grazie alla retroilluminazione LED, alla tecnologia MHL e all’innovativa funzione Wireless Display (WiDi) sviluppata da Intel, che permette di collegare lo schermo in modalità wireless agli altri dispositivi predisposti nelle vicinanze, senza il fastidioso ingombro di fili o la necessità di spostarsi dalla propria postazione.
In this tutorial I will share how I shoot “liquid flow” photos — smoke-like abstracts done by dropping cream colored with food dye into a small tank of water, then rotated 180 degrees.
Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet is expected to go on sale shortly, and now access has announced some nee accessories for the Google Nexus 7 on Twitter, which you can see in the photo below.
So it looks like Asus will be offering this new cover for the Google Nexus 7 in a range of colors which include black, magenta, cyan, light gray and orange.
There are no details on how much these new covers for the Google Nexis 7 will retail for, and also no details on when the will be available, although we suspect they will probably be available as the same time as the Nexus 7.
EyeSight has this week taken the wraps off it new gesture based control system for Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system, which has been in development for sometime, and will provide users with new ways to control the latest Windows8 OS when it arrives later this year.
The advanced gesture control user interface created by eyeSight enables Windows 8 users to control windows, applications, media, and the newly created Metro user interface within Windows, with simply hand gestures and the use of a low-end 2D web camera.
“The Windows 8 user-interface has been designed beautifully for touch,” commented Gideon Shmuel, CEO, eyeSight Mobile Technologies, “and OEMs are now hungry for a simple-to-integrate, mass market answer to touch-free control. And as hardware-based solutions incur significant costs, time and real-estate issues, software is clearly the best way to achieve this.”
At Computex last month eyeSight demonstrated their new gesture control interface running on a wide variety of device from smartphone to computers. For more information jump over to the eyeSight website for details.

We have been hearing quite a few rumors about the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 over the last couple of months,the device is expected to feature a 5.5 inch unbreakable display, and also have a number of other upgrades over the existing model.
Other rumored specifications on the Galaxy Note 2 include an improved camera, possibly a 12 or even a 13 megapixel version, and according to a recent report Samsung intends to announced the device at IFA in Berlin which starts on the 31st of August.
That would mean that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would go on sale some time in September, the device is also expected to feature Samsung’s own quad core Exynos processor.
As soon as we get some more information on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, including full specifications, pricing and an actual launch date we will let you guys know.

Last year LibreOffice announced that they were busy developing an Android version of their suite of software packages, and now it looks like the Android version is making good progress.
Thanks to developer Michael Meeks who has this week posted an update on progress together with a few screenshots, but explained that an official release of the new Android LibreOffice is still sometime away.
However the user interface is not optimised for Android as yet, the development team has revealed however that they are now able to cross compile new builds for Android.
LibreOffice is already available on Linux, Windows and Mac machines and provides an awesome free alternative to Microsoft’s Office suite of products. For more information jump over to the LibreOffice website for details.
JBL is known for its portable speakers, but an FCC filing has revealed that it’s willing to make speakers that are almost inconspicuous. The Soundfly BT would represent your everyday Bluetooth speaker save for the very uncommon ability to optionally plug directly into a wall outlet, skipping the power cord. Shades of the previous-generation AirPort Express, anyone? There’s not much mystery in other areas, but the 20W stereo output is unusually powerful for something small enough to hang off of a hotel room’s power port. Between the manual and live photos, about the only riddles left are the Soundfly BT’s official release date and price.
When setting up a gadget for review, delicately unboxing and smelling the carcinogenic whiff of freshly molded plastics, we typically feel some amount of excitement and anticipation to see how it stacks up against the competition. It’s either that or a resigned sense of duty as we run yet another iterative evolution of this or that laptop through the same benchmarks to see just how this year’s model stacks up to the older model now being sold on discount. With the Nexus Q, though, we felt something different altogether: genuine curiosity.
Why? Well, it’s a high-end device with a $299 MSRP, a price that’s multiple times higher higher than media streamers like the Apple TV, anything from Roku and, indeed, Google’s own Google TV. And yet, the Q has considerably less functionality than any of them. Largely because of this, many who witnessed its unveiling at Google I/O were quick to write it off. Despite having our own doubts we pledged to give it a fair swing, a week of solid use at home and with friends. How did it do? Does this high-concept device with high-end componentry make up for some decidedly low-end capabilities? There’s only one way to find out.
Good things come in pairs, right? Earlier this year Samsung revamped its high-end Series 9 line with two new Ultrabooks: an impressively thin 15-inch model, along with a more portable 13-inch machine. So far this year, we’ve gotten a chance to review the larger version which remains one of our favorite ultraportables ever, thanks to its minimal design, fast performance, lovely display and long battery life.
“So what?” you’re thinking. “Why bother revisiting the miniature version?” For one, friends, Samsung only recently refreshed the Series 9 with third-generation Intel Core processors, and we were eager to make note of any performance gains. More importantly, though, the 13-inch Series 9 faces stiffer competition than its big brother. There truly isn’t another big-screen notebook quite as thin or as light as the 15-inch Series 9; if those are the attributes that matter most, that’s the laptop you’re best off getting. But the smaller Series 9 finds itself fighting for space on retail shelves amidst high-end ultraportables like the MacBook Air, ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A, the HP Envy Spectre XT and, well, you get the idea. So how does this $1,300 system fare against such worthy opponents? Read on to find out.
