Google sends a bunch of Nexus S in the space, they all live to tell us about

by 582 comments

Seven Styrofoam beer coolers stuffed with Google’s latest Nexus S and a wide-angle sport camera were lifted up at the amazing altitude of 32 000 meters attached to some huge weather balloons. All of the coolers returned successfully to Earth and were picked by the Google team, so don’t expect a Nexus S landing on your balcony any time soon.

The purpose of this was to test all the device sensors and its performance under different environments such as the freezing near-vacuum conditions on the edge of space. And also, I guess, create a nice viral ad for the Nexus S. Read more »

Xbox 360 owner or not, Kinect is something you would want on your PC

by 13 comments

I am an Xbox 360 owner and I admit I would never buy a Kinect controller. I don’t like the games or the idea of making funny moves in front of my TV to play them.

But also I have a Windows 7-based PC connected to that TV. And I can be easily lured to buy a Kinect to do Si-Fi stuff on my computer while I’m sitting on my couch.

by 62 comments

Well, here’s something curious that popped into our email inbox – the OTECH F1. You might want to sit down for this – it has four SIM cars. Yep – four, 4, f-o-u-r. But wait, there’s more! All four cards are active all the time, not just one or two…

This is getting ridiculous – safety-razor level of ridiculous. It started of with one razor blade, uh sorry, SIM card, then came dual-SIM, then triple SIM and now this. Check the photos below – 4 SIM cards, 4 signal strength indicators and little use for such a thing.
