In a drive to keep the Nexus One and Desire phones on the shelves, HTC has officially verified in a Press Release that "later this summer" these two devices will be receiving Super LCD screens instead of the AMOLED screens that are the culprit for so many high end devices being out of stock.

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jul 26, 2010 11:06 pm

I don't know anything about design, but this DIY wooden table/PC case looks more 1960's to me than Danish in design. Still the thing is cool if you like to build your own computer cases.

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Software | Posted: Jul 26, 2010 7:02 pm
