Today (31st March), Sony unveiled an amazing new piece of technology that has the potential to revolutionise how we view our 3D content.
Initial Thoughts On The Product
I have never been a massive fan of 3D technology in its current form, but this product has changed my perception of it. The main problem I have had with 3D, is that to watch it on a TV, you must wear the glasses. Whilst this is still using those glasses, it is using them as the actual display. This means that you dont have to worry that you are sat off from the centre of the TV screen, so the picture may get a bit blurry etc. In short, this product potentially eliminates the main issues with 3D
Specs Of The Procuct
- It uses dual 0.7-inch HD OLED panels.
- 1280×720 resolution
- Includes 5.1 virtual surround sound
- Viewing angles of 45 degrees
I want this… but whats the price? And when’s it released?
Well, you are going to have to wait a while to get your hands on this! Its set for a release date of 11 November. Its price should be somewhere in the region of £480.

So, Caffeine is basically a shortcut to the process of opening power settings and adjusting the sleep mode settings. I would rate this as being one of my favourite applications, not only for its simplicity, but for its general usefulness. I find that I may want my laptop to sleep at one moment, but an hour later I may change my mind. This application facilitates those needs.

The Chrome Web Store is in my opinion a very under-appreciated resource. People seem to mis-understand the purpose of the Web Store. The point, was for Google to have created a directory of web-based applications that It can guarantee you are safe, and offer you a safe way to pay for them.
Here is my list of the top (free) web apps advertised through the web store:
- Gmail – Naturally the best web mail client available in this day and age.
- imo.im – A free online web messenger that allows you to contact your friends on; MSN, Facebook, Steam, myspace, aim, Skype and Yahoo.
- Google Books – The best ebook store apart from iBooks.
- Google Docs – The best online document creation tool. Perfect for education, enterprise and personal
At its release in 2001, the iPod was an amazing product, and has to this day defined and set the standards for modern music players, but are its days numbered?
I would like to believe that the iPod range can continue as it is today, however, I do not believe this will be possible for much longer. I think that there will always be a place for the iPod Toch and the iPod Classic, but I would not be at all surprised if Apple were to discontinue the rest of the range. Here is why:
- The iPod Nano was once the most popular iPod. It is not far away from the price of the iPod Touch and it has far less capability, so why would people wish to buy it? And more to the point why would Apple continue to sell it, when they could make people pay a bit extra for the Touch?
- The iPod Shuffle has very little going for it. It is way to expensive for what it is, and people know it! The average consumer will not pay close to £50 for a product that doesn’t do very much. For the same price you could purchase a low end better specked product.
- Smartphones and Tablets have the capability to run music players in a much better way than the iPod, and they save you carrying around that extra device in your pocket.
- It gives much better use of the screen for the smaller screens in the Mac range.
- It removes the distraction of the Dock and Menu bar.
- It feels well done. It is a finely tuned upgrade, unlike ‘Spaces’ was to Leopard
