knight ridder future tablet

It’s hard to believe that someone envisioned tablet PCs 18 years ago, but a dusty video clip from 1994 shows us that there were, in fact, technology visionaries before Steve Jobs (insert “ironic... grin” here).

The video shows how newspaper company Knight Ridder saw the news of the future and, darn it, I must say that those guys were spot on with their assumptions. However, what they probably d...

Nvidia-Tegra3

One of the most important hurdles that tablet PCs have had to overcome during the past couple of years, in order to become popular, has been the extravagant pricing.

Worlds-first-augmented-reality-glasses

Let’s be serious – we have only recently begun considering the fact that our glasses could also be our primary communication device, ala Google Glasses. Good luck trying to explain... that to someone over 65. But in all reality, augmented reality technologies are set to take off in a big way over the next 10 years. Imagine waking up, throwing on a pair of glasses, grabbing the coffee...

Flexible displays have been a kind of ‘’what if’’ concepts for a while now and, even though companies such as Samsung have teased us with gadgets sporting such a cool feature, we haven’t... yet seen one in action, intended for actual hands of consumers. As a matter of fact, I’m sure that there are still a lot of you who think of flexible displays as something out of a sci-fi novel or mov...

In the US, one of the few devices to receive the ICS treatment so far is AT&T’s HTC Vivid. As it turns out, the ICS package brings more than a bunch of new features and a snazzier design. HTC...

Samsung-Galaxy-Nexus
