So, same-day shipping options were born, and now outfits such as Amazon and Google are testing drone-based deliveries to get more products into more hands in less time. For now, we're still using flesh and blood citizens to make super speedy deliveries happen, and if you live in Boston, instant gratification is en route. Google has announced that its Google Express service will become available this week in parts of Boston, Brookline,... Read more...

That's a heck of a number, but it makes a lot more sense when you think about just how many lower-end Android devices are out there. But low-end shouldn't necessarily have a negative vibe to it. Sprint has just launched the Express, a $19.99 Android smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.3 and a 2.6-inch capacitive touch display. There's also Sprint ID, a 3.2MP camera with flash and camcorder, 3G mobile hotspot, Wi-Fi and a 1500mAh battery. Other specs include 256MB... Read more...

A few months ago, ASUS jumped into the audio card market with both feet with the introduction of their Xonar product line.  One of the first models to market was the premium Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity 7.1 sound card.  The D2 boasted a superb retail package with all of  the cabling, software and extras one would need thrown in, along with a slick, eye-catching design, for around $180.  Not only did the Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity 7.1 deliver on all fronts, but it also proved to be solid competition for Creative, who still has somewhat of a stranglehold on  add-in audio card marketTo...

It has been a somewhat slow weekend for tech news, but I just came across an interesting article over at the Live Science site that I wanted to share.  The article centers around a cutting edge MIT robotics project dubbed Nexi.What makes Nexi so interesting is that "she" has been designed to communicate with not only the spoken word, but with facial expressions too."MIT's Nexi robot expresses emotions the same way you do - with your highly mobile face. Nexi's head and face were designed by Xitome Design with MIT. The expressive robotics started with a neck mechanism sporting 4 degrees... Read more...

Intel's rival AMD is included for using PCI Express for its mainboards, as is NVIDIA. Large computer makers Apple,... Read more...
It has been quite some time since Intel launched a desktop chipset targeted squarely at power users and PC enthusiasts.  Of course, the P965 and current P35 have both been very well received by motherboard manufactures and the enthusiast community, but these chipsets were actually designed for the upper-mainstream space.  In fact, the 975X Express, which launched almost two years ago, was the last desktop chipset Intel specifically marketed for enthusiasts. With today’s launch, however, the Intel desktop chipset line-up gets a new flagship.  To lay the foundation for the upcoming... Read more...
