Porsche to go ahead with the 918 Spyder productions

The Porsche board has given the green light in the production of 918 Spyder Concept. This was rather expected, as Porsche once stated during the debut of the 918 Spyder Concept in Geneva Motor Show, that if there’s enough demand and booking, they may manufacture this concept. The 918 was Porsche’s hybrid sports car answer, which they claimed to have a powertrain that can deliver 78 miles per gallon.

Apple's trackpad gives you multitouch experience on a desktop

Apple’s product update frenzy doesn’t just stop on their computers. There’s a new unique product coming from Apple, and it’s very Apple-ish of kush. It’s Apple’s Magic Trackpad, and as the name says, it’s something similar to your notebook’s touchpad, but independent of itself, and supports Apple’s multitouch function, as expected. It’s wireless through Bluetooth and works on any Bluetooth-enabled Mac computer, and is glass-covered, with aluminium-shelled body.

There’s a new beast in Apple’s desktop

Along with their new iMac lineup, and a new 27-inch LED Cinema Display, Apple has also power up their Mac Pro to the power of twelve. What’s kept is the sexy aluminum chassis which has proven to be successful. But the organs of the Mac Pro have been rather revamped with some seriously powerful nuclear reactor.

Dell Streak coming very soon

The Dell Streak is not really a smartphone, but more of a miniature 5-inch hybrid tablet with some functions of a smartphone. The Dell Streak is much more about bringing together a great web browsing experience, multi-tasking capability, slick turn by turn navigation and a great way to enjoy your photos, movies and music into a sleek device that’s built for mobility. Dell plans to drop in Froyo for their Streak, but it is still not final.

Have you finished your Starcraft 2 campaign?

Have you finished your Starcraft 2 campaign?

I get the whole world should be kind of in a Starcraft-fever right now. I haven’t even got my copy of the long-waited Starcraft 2 game, and someone out there had already completed it! I mean like… what? A YouTube user by the name USpecies started playing Starcraft 2 right before midnight, and got the achievement around 3:30PM local time (Europe). Single-player done in 16 hours! Have you finished yours? I don’t actually agree on rushing the game. I never rushed my games, and I actually prefer to take it slowly, perhaps due to me being a slowpoke learner. But perhaps that’s why I lost interest in my games easily.

Google Map for Android updated for your convenience

Google has been keen in updating their ‘Google Map for Android’ in the past six month. It’s been quite a journey, and here version 4.4 shoved out, bringing about an easier way to find places around you. The update comes with an entirely new logo, as a dedicated ‘Places’ icon allows users to quickly look up nearby places. You can also load up your own personalized categories to make finding frequent searches that much easier (think “gas station” or “In N Out”) for your own convenience. There’s also Place Pages, which now shows the operating hours of listed businesses, compass direction and distance from your location. Its available now for all Android phones using v1.6 or newer, and black fruit BlackBerry owners can expect the Place Page to head their way soon.

SanDisk launch its smallest USB thumb drive ever.

SanDisk launch its smallest USB thumb drive ever.

SanDisk seemed rather bold when it comes to announcing that their latest Cruzer Blade is ‘the world’s smallest USB flash drive’. But they are rather smart in choosing their words used to avoid other big boys from getting pissed, by saying that it is about the size of a standard paper clip and weighs about the same as a U.S. penny, just to give a reference.

“At half the size of some other USB drives, our compact Cruzer Blade provides consumers with highly portable storage at a great value,” said Kent Perry, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk. “The drive lets users transfer their digital data quickly between computers, and delivers a storage boost to devices such as netbooks that often need additional memory but are difficult to upgrade easily.”

It’s available in capacities ranging from 2GB to 16GB, price ranging from $14.99 to $77.99. Looks very handy for me to use in my car, as the handy drive won’t bulge out like an annoying stick.

WARNING: Not for those who will easily misplace their belongings.
