Bang & Olufsen has just announced their new Beo6 Wi-Fi remote control, which the name immediately tells you that it is the successor to the Bang & Olufsen Beo5. Designed to be used as a universal remote for both your audio and video systems in your living room, this high-tech touchscreen system can control everything from your TV to music player all from a touch of your finger, but of course you’ll need a Wi-Fi network.
Yes, another new case from Ah Lian, the pioneer in aluminium computer chassis. Lian Li is back with its latest mini-tower case, the PC-A04. This PC case allows you to mount up to seven 3.5-inch HDDs, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboards and can even accommodate high-end graphics cards that are infamous for being extremely long.
Check this out. A fridge that shoots the beers out from an air cannon! Apparently some dude made it, and controlled it with an ‘iobridge’ and a web based iPhone interface. Now you don’t have to miss anything in the 45 minutes of the match!
Here’s yet another news about MSI’s upcoming Big bang motherboards. Apparently they’re going to use the infamous Killer NIC for ‘superb Ethernet speed’. Yes, the Killer NIC from Bigfoot Networks. It seemed that the company has teamed up with MSI to offer their enthusiast level NIC in MSI’s products which will be unveiled at the upcoming CES, presumably in their Big Bang motherboards.
Howse, CEO of Bigfoot Networks is quoted as saying that he’s “pleased to be working with MSI,” and up until now, there’s been no public partnership between the two firms. According to him, the Killer 2100 gaming network card “is a perfect complement to the MSI Big Bang family of mainboard solutions.”
Here’s a contest by Asus for all Asus owners. Apparently there’s lots of “Pride” in this poster, which means Asus want you to show off your rig with their name in a photo and a video, alongside a ‘fairytale and happy ending ever after’ story at their site. But what’s in return? Apparently, a chance to win the next Asus Intel chipset motherboard (probably P67) including the processor, and that’s not all. You’ll also get either a ‘Republic of Gamers’ 3D notebook, or the grand price of an all-expenses paid trip to Asus HQ in Taiwan!
P/S: You only have about a week’s time to do this, as the deadline is 7th January 2011, before 23:59:59. For more info, head over to the source.
Linux on every PS3 ever sold. Possible? Yes, and it’s coming probably next month, as a group of hackers called fail0verflow has just claimed to hacked the PS3 to reveal its own private cryptography key, the all important thing that allows people to sign their own code. But that’s not all; they also revealed that Sony didn’t bother generating any random numbers to secure the blasted thing, thus the cryptography always generate a same number all the time. The group intends to generate a proof-of-concept video tomorrow, and release the tools sometime next month, which will allow installation of Linux onto PS3.
Have you heard about Samsung’s next iPod Touch killer? The new 4-inch Galaxy Player that’ll run Android PMP? We certainly did few days ago. But there’s a bad news. For the Koreans, they’ll be getting it shortly after CES next week thanks to “home territorial advantage”, but those outside of the Starcraft nation, bad luck! You’ll only see it as early as “the April to June period”. That’s around 2nd quarter of 2011.
Like the iPod Touch, you get multitouch with Super AMOLED but short of the “Yellow!” function. The player will also be “an almost identical replica of the company’s wildly successful Galaxy S smartphone, which apparently has been no accident”. I’d expect the Galaxy Player to be slimmer though.
The WSJ also lets us in on the knowledge that Samsung’s phone division has taken over responsibility for building and selling its portable media player range, hence why we’re now seeing such major overlaps between the two categories.
