TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the world's smallest 150Mbps Micro Wireless N USB Adapter, model TEW-648UBM. The ultra compact form factor measures a remarkable 0.59 x 0.74 x 0.28 inches (1.5 x 1.9 x 0.7 cm).
When plugged into a USB port, the adapter extends a scant 0.3 inches (0.8 cm) from the edge of the computer. The adapter is so small that users can stow a laptop with the adapter plugged in, without worrying about damaging the laptop or the adapter.
A few weeks ago, Big Bucket Software released an update for their iPhone/iPad game, The Incident. The 1.2 update allowed the user to use their iPhone as a wireless controller to control the game on the iPad. The upcoming 1.3 update will allow the next larger screen increase, your TV.
It's not clear on how it's going to be pulled off - but the dev says that you'll have to plug your iPad into your TV.
Could it be? Finally, one of the things that annoy most people - cables. Less cables around your face and head, the better.
Of course, wireless headphones are nothing new - but, for Apple, it is. A couple of months Apple supposedly acquired Wi-Gear, a San Fransisco-based company, what area do they work in? Bluetooth wireless headphones and Bluetooth 2.0 adapters for older iDevices.

Having technology in the classroom can make learning more effective and more fun for kids all around the world. The problem with giving kids tech is that they often don't understand just how careful they have to be with the hardware to prevent any damage so stuff for the classroom has to be designed just for kids and be durable. A new tablet specifically designed for kids will be hitting the market soon called the Fable.
The tablet is made by Isabella Products and it has an intuitive interface and a 7-inch high-resolution screen. The screen is touch sensitive and the Fable has a patent pending interface called the carousel navigation interface. The device will also come pre-loaded with children's content from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The Fable tablet will allow the users to do a bunch of different tasks.
Android powered tablets and eReaders are something that there are lots of folks looking forward to out there. You might recognize the Entourage name as the company that offered up the dual screen Edge tablet earlier this year. That thing has an e-ink screen on one side and a LCD on the other. The big issue for some users was that the thing was so large and bulky.
The company has come back with another product called the Entourage Pocket Edge. The new Pocket version has the same dual screen and runs the Android OS, but it is smaller. The left side of the tablet has a 6-inch e-ink screen and the right has a 7-inch resistive touch LCD. That LCD has a resolution of 800 x 480. The smaller screens will make the device easier to handle for many users and make it more portable.
Lenovo has been making computers for a long time and after years of making sturdy looking machines that were little changed visually from when the IBM name was on the lid, the company has finally taken to making their machines look good over the last year or so. The latest new notebook from Lenovo is the new IdeaPad U260. The machine has quietly been added to the IdeaPad line and while we are short of the full specs at this time, we do have enough to know that the little ultraportable sounds good.
The machine has a 12.5-inch matte finish HD resolution LCD. I loathe the glossy and glare prone screens most notebooks so the matte screen is a great feature for me and other folks that need to work in bright environments. The notebook lacks an optical drive, which is common in the ultraportable market today and it has no ExpressCard slot either. The machine will offer both ULV Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and has a 4-cell battery.
