RumorTT: Next-gen iPod Nano to sport camera, clip makes a return, too

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Feb 2, 2012 12:32 am

A RumorTT post about an Apple product that isn't the iPhone or iPad? What's going on! The latest news from Apple.pro claims that the seventh-generation iPod Nano is set to sport a camera. Not only a camera, but it will bring sexy the camera back.

The picture above is just a leak, so the usual salt application and over-the-shoulder-throwing is required. The next-gen iPod Nano pictured is a prototype, so things could change. This prototype is said to have a paltry 1.3-megapixel camera, but is a non-final version.

 

Rumor has it that the next-gen iPod Nano is just two months away from release, so if you're after a new iPod Nano in the coming weeks, months, we would suggest waiting so you can grab one of these ultra-small, camera-equipped, clip-equipped iPod Nano's.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: Feb 1, 2012 11:21 am

The MegaUpload debacle is in the middle of a complete storm right now, and users who have used the storage provided by MegaUpload are facing the possibility that their files will be completely wiped away and never seen again.

Razer's $2800 Blade gaming laptop sells out in 30 minutes like a boss

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: Feb 1, 2012 10:24 am

We've all heard of Razer's $2800 gaming notebook, Blade, a 17-inch insanely cool laptop. It's expensive when compared to other laptops, but hey, Razer has their followers and I really thought they'd sell well, but not this well.

 

razer_s_2800_blade_gaming_laptop_sells_out_in_30_minutes_like_a_boss_10

 

Razer shared news of this on their Facebook page, where they revealed that the "overwhelming demand" for the Razer Blade has depleted their first wave of units, where they sold out in 30 minutes. How big this "first wave" was, is anyones guess. It could be 100, 1000 or 10,000.

 

Were you one of the lucky few to get your hands on the Razer Blade gaming laptop? Or do you know anyone who got their hands on it? If so, shoot me an e-mail and let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

Facebook to launch IPO, could start at $5 billion and grow, grow, grow

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: Feb 1, 2012 9:20 am

Facebook are now expected to raise $5 billion in a preliminary IPO prospectus on Wednesday morning. This is much less than expected, but could balloon out from here based on investor demand "according to sources close to the deal," reports the International Financing Review.

 

facebook_to_launch_ipo_could_start_at_5_billion_and_grow_grow_grow_09

 

The smaller deal is reportedly reflecting a decision to start with a conservative base, before deciding whether to increase. Facebook has chosen to hire five bookrunners including Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital and JP Morgan. This list could grow, also.

 

Facebook are expected to finalise the IPO process by May, if everything goes right with the registration process with the SEC. It has been reported that Facebook have been "unusually guarded" about the process for selecting banks involved in the underwriting syndicate. Obviously because this would be not only a stressful move, but a very strategic move for their future growth.

Kinect and Notebooks, Microsoft to change the way we interact with devices

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: Feb 1, 2012 8:33 am

Later this year, and much more in 2013, we should see Kinect on, or in, notebooks. Ultrabooks are set to be the new craze, Windows 8 will power these new Ultrabooks and Microsoft wants to step in between and place a Kinect motion-based device.

 

kinect_and_notebooks_microsoft_to_change_the_way_we_interact_with_devices_08

 

The Daily has some "sources inside Redmond" who have been kind enough to give some details on the upcoming Kinect-powered Windows 8 portables. It has been stated that it will be an "exclusive relationship," where Microsoft will license the technology out to manufacturers such as ASUS, but with conditions. Partners using Kinect won't be allowed to use competing motion-control tech in their devices, for example.

 

Prototypes are "in the wild," where Microsoft technicians have used them in places with a lot of audio and visual background noise, such as coffee shops and bars. It's also been said that Kinect absolutely kills battery life. One solution mentioned hints toward a clip-on unit, with its own battery pack.

First pictures of BlackBerry 10 hits the Internet, "London" is looking better than ever

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Feb 1, 2012 7:15 am

Well, well, doesn't this look quite sexy indeed. Research in Motion's (RIM) much-anticipated next-generation BlackBerry phone has been unveiled. The next phone has been codenamed "London", and today it receives its official name "BlackBerry 10."

 

first_pictures_of_blackberry_10_hits_the_internet_london_is_looking_better_than_ever_07

 

BlackBerry 10 looks like its slick looking BlackBerry PlayBook with rounded corners and an all-black look. London is going for a U.K. launch (who wouldn't thunk it) and is due "later this year." The U.S. market will receive BlackBerry 10, but dubbed "Laguna" and "Lisbon" and will hit AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon.

 

CrackBerry thinks we could see Laguna and Lisbon launch prior to London. Considering BlackBerry is still the number one smartphone in the U.K., RIM has its work cut out for itself if it wants to make a big splash across the pond. Let's talk hardware, shall we. CrackBerry have heard that both Texas Instruments OMAP5 and Qualcomm chipsets are being tested, both 1.5GHz dual-core processors.
