Charbax on Twit

Posted by Charbax – December 12, 2011

Here again, now Twit posted the video on the official http://youtube.com/twit channel, so here it is, when you click the play button below, it should start at the right time-code 35 minutes 17 seconds when I first appear on the show, where I get to talk to Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane on the Twit show at LeWeb 2011!

On Twit, I get to talk with Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane about the legalization of piracy in Switzerland, in France, about the latest Archos G9 and Arnova G2 devices and I get to show off my headmounted Motorola Kopin Golden-i system for augmented video-blogging.

Panasonic to launch more Android devices

Posted by Charbax – November 27, 2011

Panasonic is designing their own ARM Cortex-A9 processor at 1.4Ghz that can be used for Google TV type set-top-boxes. Here's a video interview with Dr. Masaitsu Nakajima, General Manager of Panasonic's Processor Core Technology, talking about their ARM Cortex-A9 for set-top-boxes:


Video posted by chipestimate.tv

As is said at the end of the video, Panasonic has plans for using ARM Powered Android in Tablets, and they probably also have plans for ARM Powered Android Smartphones, and I also expect Panasonic to use Android in some of their upcoming Camcorders, such as the Sanyo HD1000-type-design, with a 1-click Android functionality to upload the videos directly to YouTube over WiFi, with 1-click live stream to online live streaming systems like Ustream.tv and Justin.tv. I expect Panasonic to include Android in Photo cameras, and in their HDTVs using the ARM Powered Google TV platform. Look forward to major Panasonic branded Android devices news at CES, Mobile World Congress and following.

E Ink is giving away E Ink watches (US residents only)

Posted by Charbax – November 18, 2011

E Ink is giving away 4 E Ink wrist watches worth $195 every Tuesday until the 13th of December on their Facebook page. All you have to do is "Like" the E-Ink page on Facebook and enter your name, email and click to let it grab your Facebook contact info. E-Ink wrist watches are pretty awesome, I got mine since June 2010 that I wear every day, I only had to install the batteries once in the beginning and it's still running on the same small wrist watch battery. It's nice to be able to change the design of your wrist watch, have it display the date and all in a very sunlight readable way. It's just cool to know you've got an E Ink e-reader type screen on your watch. Check out this video where I show my E Ink wristwatch:

Here is more information about the $195 Phosphor E Ink watch that you can win on the E Ink facebook page: http://www.phosphorwatches.com/E-Ink-Digital-Hour-Clock-Watch-Stainless-Steel-p/70510565280.htm

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on the OMAP4 Pandaboard

Posted by Charbax – November 17, 2011

Texas Instruments released this video showing that Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 now already boots fine on the OMAP4430 based $179 Pandaboard which you can buy at http://pandaboard.org. I expect that we might see Desktop-optimized user interfaces and a full Chrome web browser soon, maybe with Android 4.1 or 4.2. As I also think it's important for every ICS smartphone to turn into a "desktop mode" when using the HDMI output and when a keyboard and mouse are detected.

Posted by Charbax – November 1, 2011

Texas Instruments is launching a $5 ARM Cortex-A8, it's re-optimized for specific tasks, it can go in tablets, but it can also be used in industrial and medical applications, and certain custom uses, where this can be thought of a high-end microprocessor yet very low cost, it starts at $5 for ordering 100 thousand units. It's an ARM Cortex-A8 performance for industrial applications at the cost and power usage of ARM9 Microprocessor. TI's Beagleboard.org community is launching the new $89 BeagleBone to develop on this platform.
