Color, a new free app for iPhones and Android devices, launched today. This new app lets people in close proximity capture and have real-time access to photos, videos, and text simultaneously from multiple smartphones. Color uses a patent-pending technology that identifies nearby smartphones. Using Color, you can share your photos, videos, and text instantly with surrounding phones. Although we haven't tested Color for ourselves yet, we have to wonder about privacy and decency issues that could arise. As the company puts it, "Color requires real-life etiquette and accountability for all actions.... Read more...
Color e-ink. It's a fairly tale, of sorts. It's a technology that we know exists, and we know that many companies are working on making it into something that can be produced commercially. But today, the only e-paper that exists in the consumer realm is the black/white kind that's found on the NOOK and Kindle. For well over five years, certain companies have attempted to produce a backlight-free color version of the e-ink displays that are used today on e-readers, but it's obviously a difficult task. It's always hard to have your cake and it too (so to speak), and color e-ink is a dramatic case... Read more...
Pentax has their work cut out for them. With companies like Olympus, Nikon and Canon dominating the DSLR scene, it's tough to get anyone's attention with a different label. That said, colors sure do get attention, and that's exactly the tactic Pentax is using with their newest lineup. The company's K-x DSLR line has been available overseas in a variety of hues for awhile now, but Americans were stuck with just the basics. Now, the K-x can be ordered by Americans in limited edition bright blue, orange, green and purple. Each kit comes with an 18-55mm lens and an array of features including Live... Read more...
Remember back in ancient computer times, say the late '80s and early '90s, when your only choice for a computer screen was black, with white, orange or green typeface?That model has long since been discarded in favor of full-color screens, which are much easier on the eye and, frankly, more attractive. But then the Kindle e-book reader came along, along with a few other similar devices (such as the Sony Reader), and everyone just accepted that they were monochrome. Even the magazine-sized Kindle released earlier this month was a monochrome reader.Later this month, at the Society for Information... Read more...

There is no way to categorize AMD's recent launch of the RV770 graphics processor powering the Radeon HD 4800 series of cards as anything other than a resounding success. Cards based on the GPU hit the scene offering very strong performance in their respective price brackets, and forced rival NVIDIA to react with a quick round of price cuts that will surely eat into NVIDIA's margins on the gigantic 65nm GT200 chip. Although actual sales figures aren't available just yet, we suspect AMD is going to show strong sales of every member of the Radeon HD 4800 series. One common concern among analysts... Read more...

There should be no doubt as to whether the engineers at HP dream in black-and-white or in color. The question should be: How many colors do they dream in? The answer: over one billion. That's how many colors HP's new DreamColor LP2480ZX LCD is capable of displaying: "The HP DreamColor Display features a new liquid crystal display (LCD) that provides a range of more than 1 billion colors in a 30-bit, LED-backlit display. The display is now shipping worldwide for a U.S. list price of $3,499."Three and a half grand might seem pretty steep for a display, but for a number of professional-level, color-accurate-critical...

Yes, yes, it's all tweaking of the UI, but it's all these little touches, right, that draw people to particular products?Gmail has added colored labels. Now, instead of just seeing the text of a label next to the subject, you’ll see the label in color (pictured). You can use either white text on the selected color or colored text on a lighter background of the same color. Strictly speaking, it’s just prettying up the UI, but still … Now, what are the drawbacks? Well, you have to use the newer version of Gmail, as I said. You also have to use IE7 and Firefox 2.x, as well (I would hope you were already... Read more...
