In an odd collaboration Google, Firefox and NVIDIA have made a special version of YouTube, which lets you view 3D content in Firefox 4 using NVIDIA’s 3D Vision system.
YouTube has been showing 3D videos for a while now, but those were of the anaglyph variety – this update adds support for NVIDIAs active shutter glasses.
Well, it didn’t take so long for yet another lawsuit filled against Google. Just after the announcement of Google Wallet and Offers yesterday, the online money transfer giant PayPal filled a 28-page claim (get the PDF).

Does an innocuous piece of code hold the key to an unknown HTC? Sources claim that this leaked user agent profile (or UAprof), makes reference to a previously unknown HTC device, codenamed the Mecha S.
UAprofs traditionally are used to display a device’s properties with regard to webpage rendering and MMS exchange. This one mentions the ‘HTC_Mecha_S’, which has lead people to believe this to be a small version of the HTC Thunderbolt as the Thunderbolt went by the codename ‘Mecha’ itself.
Google offer a growing number of in-house developed apps for their Android smartphone platform and they know that we, as users, expect a solid experience. We mentioned the improvements that came to the recent update of Google Goggles and now it’s Maps’ turn, for the second time this month.
Google Maps version 5.5 rather than adding features, improves on its existing repertoire. For a start ‘check in’ and ‘rate and review’ buttons have appeared on any Places pages you might pull up. This basically gives you better integration of Latitude and its location logging, alongside quick review access, for when you want to make or break ‘that place you were just at’.
Apple’s acting CEO Tim Cook is on a visit in South Korea right now and some industry sources claim he has a really intriguing business there. According to the rumors, Cook is there to talk with Samsung about supplying AMOLEDs for their iGadgets.

200 megapixels. That’s about 190 megapixels more than what most people would ever need. But then this camera is not designed for most people. This camera is designed for those that need that kind of ridiculous pixel count in their images and know what they are doing. Also for those that have $45,000 lying around for a camera.
So how does the H4D-200MS achieve this extraordinary feat of capturing 200 megapixel images, considering it “only” has a 50 megapixel sensor inside? The answer is with a motor, and a piezoelectric one at that.
We’ve gotten various reports from around the world that Skype connectivity is not operating normally. We saw a similar outage not too long ago so we hope this time it won’t be as bad as the last time.
Sony announced drool-worthy S Series 13.3” VAIO laptops that boast impressive performance and battery life (up to 16 hours for some configurations). The laptops weigh around 1.7kg and pack more processing power than your average desktop computers, depending on how you customize it.

The FCC have just spilled the beans on another unannounced Android smartphone by Samsung. The SPH-D600 was caught running the latest phone-oriented version of the Google OS – 2.3.3 Gingerbread.
The Samsung SPH-D600 is a mid-range device headed to Sprint. Its HVGA screen and back panel suggest a close relation to the Galaxy Ace, but the 1GHz Scorpion CPU and the WiMax connectivity put the D600 higher up the pecking order.
The CNN App for iPhone has been available in the USA since 2009, while the international one is just six months old. It seems CNN has found Symbian^3 attractive enough as they’ve made the CNN App available in the Ovi Store as well.

Memory cards are one of the most ubiquitous and essential accessories of today’s mobile devices. And in a mobile world where HD content is quickly becoming the standard, one’s mobile device just can’t have enough memory. The latest creation from Kingmax should (at least temporarily) be able to satisfy the most memory hungry mobile users. At 64GB of available storage, it is the largest capacity microSD card to date.
The new card is from class 6 and features the 9 Stacked Die technology. It is compliant
Opera Mini is one of the most popular browsers across many platforms (iOS, Android, Symbian, BlackBerry OS, etc). It utilizes server-side compression to bring you a less data-hungry version of the webpage you’re enjoying, saving you your precious data traffic in the background.
And now the latest Opera Mini browser update is out for iOS (it’s already been appreciated on Android) and we’re hot in pursuit of its pros and cons. The new version, 6.0 to be exact, is flat out, embarrassingly better than the old one and for the first time in its iOS history truly usable as a replacement for the Safari browser.
Web browsing is a tablet’s bread and butter and a key factor is how long you’ve got until you have to go looking for a wall socket. As part of our tests on the Motorola XOOM, we ran a battery test using the same method as when we tested the Galaxy S II.
We’ll be using the Apple iPad 2 as a yard stick. Here’s how we did the tests and the numbers we came up with.
