Ahmed Mohamed has had a whirlwind week. The teen brought a “homemade” clock to school to impress his teachers, but eventually was arrested when one teacher inquired about a beeping sound. When Ahmed revealed the clock, which was enclosed in a pencil case, he was sent to the principal’s office and later arrested over concerns that he had built a device that looked like a bomb. The picture of Ahmed in handcuffs is the catalyst for what launched Ahmed’s quick rise to fame and a media firestorm.I expect they will have more to say tomorrow, but Ahmed's sister asked me to share this photo.

For a company that knows how to dish out the lawsuits, it's pretty funny to think what would happen if the tables were turned. Of course, it doesn't look like it's coming to come to that in this particular case. Shortly after iOS 6 hit the iPad, Swiss Federal Railways recognized that the clock icon in the new Clock app looked a lot like a clock that it has a patent on. Too alike. So much alike, that it quickly sought out Apple and informed it that it best pony up. Now, it looks as if the two companies have reached an agreement on the use of SBB's station clock on certain devices such as iPads and iPhones. This arrangement has been mutually agreed by both parties in a license agreement. For the... Read more...
It could be said that when it sues others for stealing design ideas, Apple is a pot calling the kettle black. Further damning evidence is that Apple appears to have swiped the design for the clock in iOS 6 from the Swiss Federal Railways iconic clock. Here’s a side-by-side of the two: Image credits: Newlyswissed (L) and iDownload Blog (R) As you can see, they’re essentially identical. And yes indeed, the Swiss Federal Railways is taking legal action against Apple for using it illegally. According to swissinfo.ch, the railway clock is widely licensed and used for timepieces of all shapes and sizes, but Apple apparently didn’t bother to pay the fee for its use. Brilliant, creative...

iLuv has managed to hold their own in the volatile iPod accessory market, and now they're one of the biggest names in the iPod clock market. Amazingly enough, it seems that not everyone has one of these yet, because iLuv just keeps cranking them out. The newest one is a bit different than the others, though, with the iMM190 App Station coming with an iLuv app clock application.The stylish device is available now to U.S. consumers, and when docked (and the app running), users can actually use their iPod touch or iPhone display as a large clock, weather screen or to view loads of other bits of small, web-connected information. In addition to the App, this multimedia speaker dock combines speakers,... Read more...
iLuv has been making iPod and iPhone alarm clocks for as long as we can remember, and so far as we know, they are about the best you can buy. The new iMM183 is taking things to the next level by being the world's first dual dock alarm clock with a weather radio. That's a lot of functionality in a small device, and if you've been looking for a great excuse to replace that aging alarm clock that has been beeping at your for decades, this is it. The advanced clock is designed to hold and charge up to two iPods and iPhones (with dock connectors), and it can be programmed to set off multiple alarms that play songs or stations from whatever iPod/iPhone you select. In other words, you and your spouse... Read more...
**Update:  We have just added new images that were taken live at the event. - We’ve been spending some quality time with the folks at AMD today in sunny Austin, TX.  The team here has been giving us a run-down on their upcoming Phenom II processor along with the enthusiast platform they’re calling “Dragon”.  In short, the Dragon platform is a combination of an AMD Phenom II X4 processor, Radeon 4800 Graphics cards and an AMD 7 series chipset based motherboard. However, today’s discussion was keenly focused on AMD's upcoming Phenom II X4 processor, two models of which will launch in early January that will be socket AM2+ compatible.  In addition, some time in Q1, AMD will launch...

NVIDIA’s and AMD’s graphics board partners usually take differing approaches when releasing factory overclocked variants of each company’s respective high-end GPUs. When NVIDIA launches a new part for example, their board partners typically have factory overclocked versions at the ready, and at launch, it’s sometimes easier to find overclocked cards than stock reference models. AMD’s board partners, however, don’t usually take the same approach. When AMD launches a new ATI Radeon, the first batch of cards to hit typically follow the reference design to the letter, and custom, factory overclocked models don’t arrive until some time later. That’s what happened with the Radeon HD 4870 X2. At launch,... Read more...

Preliminary news regarding AMD's upcoming 45nm Phenom processors has been trickling out for the last few months, but other than some basic information about the manufacturing process, code names, and socket, concrete details about the processors themselves has been scarce.  Just the other day, however, a post in a Chinese discussion forum--itocp.com--shed some light on the stock performance and overclockability of an early 45nm Phenom sample.If the information in the post turns out to be true, and all indicators at this point are that it is, the chip used for their experiments has a default clock speed of 2.2GHz, with 2MB of L2 cache (512KB per core x 4), and 6MB of shared L3 cache, which...

Just last week, we posted an evaluation of a Radeon HD 3650 card by Diamond Multimedia, where said manufacturer decided to one-up ATI's reference specifications by raising the amount of on-board memory to a full one gigabyte.  The results, unfortunately, were not overly favorable as the memory happened to be of the inexpensive, low-speed DDR2 variety.Today, however, we take a look at two more HD 3650s, one each from ASUS and HIS, where the emphasis was placed more on clock speeds than on memory buffer size.  While the default speeds set forth by ATI's reference specifications were listed as 725 MHz for the GPU core and 800 MHz for the memory, the two cards represented in this article...
