GadgiT-Mat Laptop Mouse Platform

Friday, July 15, 2011

If you're the type that spends long hours using a laptop, then perhaps the track pad on the laptop may not be the most ergonomical solution for you. There are also probably some users out there who just in general prefer using a mouse over a track pad, as a mouse tends to be faster and more precise. The downside is that due to the portability of laptops, the use of a mouse would require a flat surface, which may not always be possible. That's where the GadgiT-Mat Laptop Mouse Platform will probably come in handy.

It basically acts as an extension to your laptop, with a clamp that clamps onto your laptop, and all you would have to do is slide the platform into place. Naturally laptops come in various sizes and thickness, but the clamp is said to be able to be adjusted to varying levels of thickness.

It also comes with a gel pad for you to rest your wrists on, to prevent strain, and because it is elevated, it does not block access to your DVD drive or USB ports. If that sounds like something you would be interested in having as an accessory for your laptop, the GadgiT-Mat Laptop Mouse Platform is currently retailing at 20 GBP (about $32).

Intel says notebooks and tablets will be eradicated in a decade

In the near future, we won't have tablets, netbooks and notebooks. Well, at least that's what Intel says. But what will we humans be using? Or maybe, Skynet has already taken over the world?

During his keynote address at the SEMICON West conference in San Francisco, vice president of Intel's architecture group Rama Skukla said that the lines between a netbook, laptop and tablet are disappearing faster than today's designers can even realize. That said, it's quite possible that these form factors will be gone within ten years.

“It's going to be very difficult to see where one device goes and the next one takes off,” he told the audience. Even today, the concept of PCs is already outdated. He added that future PCs will probably serve as “personal companions” instead of bulky devices, synchronizing around the owner in an individual cloud of information that users will be able to share with others or keep private.To achieve this oneness with the cloud, Skukla suggested to the captive audience that hardware manufacturers will have to address this cloudy trend by working closely with software developers and distributors so that end-users will have a solid way to manage their identity while also experiencing a seamless, secure computing environment.

Intel is already gearing up for this change, he said. In fact, the industry will see major advances in processor technology within the next five years. Graphics performance on mobile chips alone is expected to rise by a factor of 12 by 2015 - just look at what Intel has achieved with its second generation Sandy Bridge processors.

Unfortunately, Skukla didn't really explain what he envisioned consumers would actually use in ten years. Looking back on the last decade however, desktops still look like desktops, laptops still look like laptops (although they've gotten bigger and thinner), and consoles still look like consoles. The biggest change that's taken place, or so it seems, is in the mobile sector. Tens years ago phones were bulky, ugly and had enough brains to store a few phone numbers; now they can load Flash-based websites, play Angry Birds and stream video content straight to our palm.

So if all of our familiar mobile form factors will be eradicated in the future, what will we use? Smart-watches that can project HD+ imagery on any surface while detecting our finger motions, making mobile keyboards obsolete? Will it connect to Bluetooth glasses that are capable of displaying HD video and audio directly to our eyes and ears? Will the desktop grow wheels, a domed head, and toot electronic beeps while it projects holograms for our entertainment?

Dell adds 4G LTE support to its Latitude E6420 laptop

Dell's Latitude business laptops have been a pretty popular choice when it comes to mobile solutions for the working professional, and now the Latitude E6420 has just gotten even sweeter. Today, Dell announced that it will be adding a new configuration option to the Latitude E6420 laptop: support for Verizon's 4G LTE network. Users that purchase the laptop will be able to get it with 4G LTE out of the box - eliminating the need of purchasing a separate 4G modem from Verizon.

This means that you'll be able to download files at blazing speeds (be it for work or entertainment) even when you're on the go: something to consider if you work with a lot of heavy files that need transferring, or if you work on the cloud all the time. The Dell Latitude E6420 is a customizable laptop, with specs ranging from Intel Core i3 to i7 processors, up to 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM, Intel HD Graphics 3000 or NVIDIA NVS 4200M, a 14″ display (touch optional) and more.

Samsung NC215S delayed until August

Don't you just hate it when you have just a little bit more work to go, and with no power outlet in sight, your notebook gives up simply because there is no more battery left to power it? Well, Samsung feels that they have the solution in the form of the Samsung NC215S, but said netbook has been delayed until August later this year. This 10″ netbook is the first of its kind that boasts a solar panel which has been built straight into the lid. While it had already gone up for pre-order, it hasn't started to ship just yet.

We guess the next time someone asks you what are some of the essential items you would bring with you onto an island if you were to be marooned, then the Samsung NC215S might just be one of the compulsory items. After all, where else are you going to write your memoirs if not on the netbook? Since you're stranded on a tropical island and can survive on coconuts, you can prepare your future book when someone rescues you while juicing up the netbook under the sun as you figure out just what the next chapter will hold.

Powered by an Intel Atom 1.66GHz N570 dual core processor, the Samsung NC215S's solar panel is touted to generate enough electricity to provide 1 hour of run time for every 2 hours it basks under the sun.

HP Possibly Releasing Ultrabooks This Summer

While the details are scarce at this point, Taiwan-based part and component suppliers claim that HP will actually be the first to produce a mobile PC based on Intel's “ultrabook” concept, beating the Asus UX21 (seen right) to the market. The HP-branded ultrabooks will be manufactured by Foxconn and may even arrive sometime this summer.

According to unnamed sources, HP's upcoming ultra-slim notebooks will be packed with Intel's 1.7 GHz Core i7-2637M and 1.8 GHz Core i7-2677M dual-core processors. Windows 7 will also be the OS of choice. Other hardware and software specs were not provided.

During Computex 2011, Intel claimed that its tablet-like ultrabook design guidelines would dominate over 40-percent of the laptop market share within the next six to nine months. The form factor itself will supposedly be under 20-mm thick (0.8 inches) while the overall notebook will reside under the $1000 pricetag. The first wave of these super-slim notebooks will run on Intel's current Sandy Bridge processor platform, and then move to the Ivy Bridge platform next year.

“Many of the super-sleek devices today are quite pricey. The price points need to become more mainstream,” Intel marketing chief Tom Kilroy told CNET. “And as volume ramps, say by the end of 2012, we think as much as 40 percent of the volume will be in this ultra category. And as the volume picks up, the price points will come down. And we think by 2013 with ‘Haswell,' which is our system-on-a-chip implementation, you'll see ultrabooks in truly mainstream price points of $599.”

As numerous manufacturers have tried to follow Apple's success by releasing tablets of their own, the ultrabook concept seems to follow Apple's lead by mimicking its MacBook Air design. Intel is hoping that the new blueprint will help ward off the ever-growing tablet segment from the notebook sector by offering tablet-like experiences but with laptop-like performance.

So far HP has not responded to the reports. However, the HP-branded ultrabooks are supposedly already completed and currently shipping off to the company for distribution.
