The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a 10.1-in tablet computer designed, developed and marketed by Samsung Electronics. The tablet runs on the 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and serves as a platform for multimedia consumption including movies, music, and web browsing. It is the second entry into Samsung’s Galaxy Note range, which emphasises the use of a stylus officially named S-Pen (S standing for Samsung) as an input device for tasks such as sketching and note-taking. The Note 10.1 was originally unveiled on 27 February 2012 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, with a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor. The tablet was released in Germany and the United Arab Emirates on 6 August 2012. This final version of the tablet incorporates a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor. The tablet comes with 16, 32 and 64 GB of internal storage, and a maximum of 2 GB of RAM. The Note 10.1 was launched in the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Korea on August 16.Related Posts:
Kinect’s depth image is processed to obtain a 3D point cloud of the scene which is then used to follow the object as it moves (in this case, a moving box). The calculated transformation is sent to a CAD visualization tool where a virtual object performs the same movements as those done by the real object.Related Posts:
Microsoft and Nokia are taking their continued collaboration a step further, incorporating the Finnish company’s mapping back-end to offer expanded and improved traffic results in Bing Maps. Nokia’s system will be powering the traffic results in 24 different countries, including the United States, the UK, Italy, France, and Germany. Not only does the switch bring traffic coverage to countries that didn’t already have the capability, but it also adds traffic tracking for side streets in the US. The use of Nokia’s geocoding services in several countries will also improve the quality of Bing’s turn-by-turn directions. The changes are simply the latest benefit to hit Bing since the two companies decided to partner; both systems began using a…

AMD released a preview of their Catalyst 12.1 driver package last December, and now the update has become official— along with a new 12.2 Preview build that should please users who favor multiple displays. Catalyst 12.1 doesn’t offer any surprises in comparison to its preview version. Along with the usual assortment of tweaks and bug fixes, it features custom application profiles, 3D support for those running CrossFireX rigs, and a stereo 3D mode over HDMI 1.4a that enables 1080p at 24Hz on supported displays. It’s available for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Vista, as well as the entire Windows XP line.
The 12.2 Preview builds upon the 12.1 release, with a particular focus on enhancing AMD’s Eyefinity solution for…
I reviewed the SteelSeries Xai early last year, pronouncing it elegant and effective. I’d still recommend it today, except for the fact that a new and improved version has just been announced: the Sensei. The simple and comfortable design of the Xai is intact, but there’s a new metal surface (which has yet to prove itself; the old surface was great), customizable lighting, and some changes under the hood.
A new in-mouse processor (which they note is fast as 1994′s Pentiums) allows for increased sensitivity, collating and processing images from the laser sensor at up to 12,000 frames per second. Yes, it’s probably overkill, but so is a quad-core i7 when you’re checking email. The new engine should enhance the tracking accuracy, especially for high-CPI users like me, whose mouse rarely moves less than an inch in crossing 4000 pixels of display space.
The lighting has been updated, as well — you can now light up the scroll wheel, high/low sensitivity light, and logo with different colors. I suspect there will be many flag-related schemes being shared.
On the bottom you’ll find the same on-mouse sensitivity and profile manager from the last few mice. Again, overkill, but nice to have. The overall layout hasn’t changed, though I have to say I’m sad to see the classic, rough SteelSeries finish go.
We’ll be sure to put this one through its paces. You’ll be able to pick one up yourself in September for $ 90 or €90. Head over to SteelSeries for more info.

The magic vision glasses or eye implants have been a staple of sci-fi for a long time. From the mega-vision of the Terminator or Predator to Deckard’s image enhancer to the silly monocular used by Jason Bourne (I mean come on), we’ve always loved the idea of being able to see more than the eye can actually see. And of course the staples of sci-fi are often staples of R&D as well, and this one is no different.
While many of our current troops are outfitted with some serious visual enhancement gear, the Defense Department is looking into taking this tech to the next level.
The SCENICC research project is a bit of a pie-in-the-sky effort right now, but like the prudent archer, DARPA is aiming high in order to hit a target on a lower level. SCENICC calls for a full-3D virtualization of the entire battlefield, navigable by each soldier and provided with enhanced imagery so they can detect distant muzzle flashes, lock their weapons onto targets, and other stuff that isn’t even remotely possible right now.
Oh, and did I mention that the whole system needs to weigh like a pound and a half?
Actually, it’s increasingly possible that this information could be held at a distant datacenter and be crunched by supercomputers there, like OnLive or Netflix. All the soldiers would need would be video on demand and some basic low-bandwidth data like telemetry.
Will our doughboys be cyborgs in 2020? No, but they’ll be far better-equipped because we tried to make them cyborgs.
There’s lots more information over at Danger Room.
Finally, some common sense when it comes to airline security. Pilots will henceforth be exempt from security screenings at airports. This includes those highly invasive enhanced pat-downs that have been used post-ink toner plot.
Does this eliminate the utter stupidity of patting down infants and silver-haired grandmothers. No, clearly it doesn’t, but maybe it shows that the TSA isn’t completely unmovable with its positions.
The Pilots’ association said, bluntly, “Pilots are not the threat here; we’re the target.”
Yes. I cannot, for the life of me, understand how that wasn’t an accepted truth from Day One.
And just as a heads-up, John Tyner, the man whose videos of the TSA acting all TSA-y, has posted a new post on his blog. He’s quite articulate with his views, not some lunatic with an agenda.
