Nokia Eco-friendly Phone powered by Coca-Cola…

The below shown picture is the work of designer Daizi Zheng, an eco-friendly Nokia phone powered by sugary drinks.

Daizi claims that the phone battery, used as a power source is too expensive and harmful for nature, specially in the disposal process. She has an alternative for normal batteries, that is the bio battery, an eco-friendly source of energy that uses carbohydrates (sugar in this case) and enzymes as the catalyst for the process needed to produce energy.One pack of sugary drink will include enough carbohydrates for your phone to work, also generating water and energy, when the battery dies. Bio batteries have the potential to work three to four times longer with a single charge, compared to the Li-Ion batteries used today.

The idea is brilliant, but what about the handset’s design? A FLASK IN YOUR POCKET

     What’s really interesting about Nokia CORE is the fact that it’ll transfer its interface and content automatically to the nearby computer through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. After the transfer, CORE will turn into the mouse of the computer and it’ll control the device via its UI. At the back side of the concept phone there’s a camera lens, plus mouse buttons, both hidden pretty well. Also, you should know that the handset’s display is made from OLEDs.

Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds

 

This ISV (independent software vendor)-certified laptop crushes every application it encounters. In tests with professional-level content-creation tools, including 3D Studio Max 2011, Painter 11, and Avid Media Composer, all of the programs ran smoothly. Demanding games can also bring down lesser laptops–but while gamers may not be this laptop’s target market, on this machine Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Crysis Warhead, and Supreme Commander 2 all looked great at high resolutions and maximum settings.

 

The monster Lenovo W701ds dual screen laptop is an upgraded version of the 700ds. The W701ds has a Intel Core i7-920 Extreme processor at its heart, a 17-inch WUXGA (1920×1200) primary display, and Nvidia Quadro FX 3800M graphics.
The W701ds can ship with up to 16GB DDR3 memory, 500GB HD storage, and all models have WiMAX support, one USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, and a 2-megapixel camera.
 The secondary 10.6-inch screen with a WXGA 1280×800 resolution is stored behind the main display and can slide out to reveal extra desktop space for multiple applications.
The Lenovo W701ds is available to buy for around $3800 and more information can be found on Lenovo website

 

 

 

 

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T

The 3.2GHz Phenom II X6 1090T lags behind Intel’s six-core behemoth. Previously codenamed Thuban, the 1090T is a 45nm part, while Intel’s 980X has been shrunk down to the 32nm process. Where the 980X offers a 12MB L3 cache for improved memory management between multithreaded applications, the 1090T offers only 6MB. And AMD’s technology doesn’t address Intel’s much touted Hyper Threading technology, which turns their six-core processor into twelve available cores for applications to dabble with.

By most measures, Intel’s six-core processor is the superior part. But in typical AMD fashion, what the Phenom II X6 1090T lacks in raw power, it makes up for with a tantalizingly competitive price: the 1090T can be had for as little as $300. By comparison, Intel’s admittedly superior silicon comes with a $1000 price tag, making it virtually inaccessible for many enthusiasts. And that’s assuming you already have a compatible motherboard. The 1090T offers drop-in support with existing AM3 and AM2+ socket motherboards, after a BIOS upgrade. The 980X, by contrast, requires the LGA 1366 socket.

UBUNTU 10.04 Time Line

Social Networking Features in ubuntu 10.04

Social Networking Features

Desktop social networking support is implemented through integration with Gwibber, an open source microblogging client that supports nine services, including Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Flickr, and FriendFeed. The Gwibber technology appears to users through a new MeMenu added to the operating system user interface.

The OS ships with Firefox 3.6, but changes the default search engine from Google to Yahoo, as part of a revenue sharing arrangement between Canonical and Yahoo. Also included is the OpenOffice 3.2 open source productivity suite.

Canonical warns that the beta should not be installed on production systems. A full list of features and known bugs is available here.

Lucid Lynx’s desktop version also integrates Canonical’s Ubuntu One (U1) music store, now in limited beta test. The store will allow users to purchase music through Rhythmbox, the default music player for the operating system.
