Taking a cue from Motorola's Atrix, this phone can dock as a laptop, tablet, or gaming console (PSP style). None of these docks extend processing or ram capacity... yet. http://www.gottabemobile.com/2011/09/06/kt-spider-smartphone-hybrid-blurs-line-between-phone-tablet-gaming-console/ Continue reading

From xkcd: "Through 20 years of effort, we've successfully trained everyone to use passwords that are hard for humans to remember, but easy for computers to guess." Yup. And stop asking me for my Mother's maiden name. SO not secure. Continue reading

My First (not so) Smartphone A couple of years ago, I bought the Blackberry Storm 9530 (the first one). It was ok, even snappy... until I downloaded more than 2 apps on it. Apparently it wasn’t designed to hold very many apps (like 3, boo). Let’s Go Shopping! I’ll spare... Continue reading

WebGL is only as scary as the author of the application you are using... kinda like ActiveX and other similar technologies. Continue reading

Meanwhile, Microsoft is bringing us 'C3', an HTML/JS/CSS platform. No mention of 3d, unfortunately. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/beyond-the-browser-microsofts-c3-next-gen-platform-for-html-based-applications/9282?tag=content;feature-roto
Looks like Acer is on the job already: http://boomnews.info/review-exclusive-acer-iconia-tab-w500/ The W500 is a bit rough around the edges, but it may be a pre-cursor to that netbook-killer I am waiting for.
It's funny, I had almost the opposite experience. I had high hopes for the iPad. I was hoping it would be the netbook killer, the only device I would have to take with me on those long flights. I totally understand the success and strength of the iPad and it's ilk as casual, media and entertainment devices. What I really find frustrating is that these devices are so limited in what they can do... especially since it seems to be the result of intentional design. I don't expect that they would replace our much faster desktop replacement laptops(like the HP EliteBook 8540w). I'll still haul that 7 pound monster with me on trips(for it's speed and strength). Maybe I am asking too much: Bring me a netbook killer in a slim, touchscreen interface! P.S. Thanks for reading and commenting Scott!

In January, while working on a web viewer for 3d files, we had to pick a WebGL engine. It was a tough choice, even then. Our big contenders were C3DL, CopperLicht, CubicVR, GLGE, and O3D... Continue reading
