We have a couple of pieces of interesting information coming out of AMD this morning, one of them regarding AMD’s continued use of the ATI brand, the other about an inexpensive, active DisplayPort-to-DVI dongle that should make to cost of entry into multi-screen Eyefinity more palatable for budget conscious consumers. Over the last few weeks, you may have heard rumors about AMD no longer using the ATI brand. We can confirm that this is indeed going to be the case.  AMD will shed the ATI brand name soon but it is not happening immediately and will have no effect on existing product. We... Read more...
It should be common sense that electronic devices can cause interference with other electronic devices (remember the old pacemaker / microwave problem?). After all, an earlier study about RFID tags interfering with medical devices has been released, and a new study released on Sunday shows that headphones might throw off pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) when placed within an inch of the medical devices. The presentation, titled Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) of Implanted Cardiac Devices by MP3 Player Headphones was shown at the American Heart Association's annual... Read more...
There's always quite a race to display things. Look at the ferocious competition and impressive innovation between the makers of plasma screens, LCD screens, rear-projection sets, you name it. I guess you can still buy Cathode Ray Tubes, too,  if you like technology from the last century. They all have their pluses and minuses, of course, but can you get one that has a picture up to 25 feet across diagonally but costs only $720?  Oh yes, how about if it weighed under 5 pounds? Toshiba says: consider our portable projector. “As an innovator in mobile computing technology, Toshiba has added... Read more...
During a summit with South Korean's president the reclusive leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong Il, described himself as an Internet Expert.  While the comment alone is certainly one of those things that will likely live on as a running joke after being taken out of context.  A certain Al Gore comment comes to mind.So what was the context?“The reclusive leader made the remark after South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun asked that South Korean companies operating at an industrial park in the North Korean city of Kaesong be allowed to use the Internet, Yonhap news agency reported, without citing...

A new study shows the dangers of buying an iPod for people with pacemakers: "The portable music players caused pacemakers to malfunction in 50 percent of patients, according to the study by a Michigan high school senior that was expected to be presented Thursday at the Heart Rhythm Society's annual meeting, in Denver. The biggest concern is that pacemakers store the history of a heart's rhythms, said Jay Thaker, the Okemos High School student, who worked with several doctors on the research. "If a physician was to go back and look at that (history), the physician might think that the patient... Read more...
Just in case you're the type who likes to skip right to the news, we wanted to let you know we've got a new article live featuring Asus' take on the recently released GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, the aptly named EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M.

While NVIDIA is marching forward with its DirectX 10 capable GeForce 8800 series, ATI is still mum on their next generation graphics cards. Which is somewhat surprising, as one would think this time of year would be ideal for new product announcements. But while Vista is due for a broad release in January '07, games that fully exploit the features of DirectX 10 won't be commonplace for quite some time.  The rest of the market is still full of great material that is OpenGL or DirectX 9-based leaving the current line of ATI graphics cards as a viable options for all but the...
