Chumby has been making Flash based widget systems for embedded Linux powered small screen tablet devices that are not meant to be put in the pocket but that are meant for the home. On your office desk, in the kitchen, in the living room, you can activate any among thousands of widgets that automatically scroll informations, videos, audio from the Internet. You can use it to wake up to music from Last.fm, Pandora, with videos from Youtube, RSS feeds, your latest Facebook comments, IM, it can alert you when you get new emails and more.

Sony Dash at CES 2010

Posted by Charbax – January 7, 2010

This was probably one of the most interesting announcements at the Sony CES press conference. It has a pretty nice 7" capacitative touch screen, USB host and $199 is an okay price! I'd really like clever USB accessories such as somehow a detector in a pillow and have the Dash wake you up at the end of your sleep cycles instead of in the middle, wake you up with the most relevant informations from your email, IM, social networks, RSS feeds and using videos from Youtube or music from Last.fm or Pandora.

I am video-blogging using an ARM Powered laptop!

Posted by Charbax – January 7, 2010

This is a worlds first, so does the Lenovo staff tell me. I can insert my SD card from my Sanyo HD1000 into the SD card reader of the Lenovo Skylight Smartbook, and right from within their Firefox based web browser, log-in to Youtube, click upload, select the file from the SD card and simply click to upload it! I actually uploaded this 1280x720 9mbit/s 25MB video clip using their built-in AT&T 3G connection, it took about a couple of minutes to upload over 3G. The same can of course be done faster over WiFi. With more tests to come up, I will try to figure out if the Youtube video-blogging using this ARM Powered laptop can be done just as fast as using an Intel powered laptop. And the ability to constantly upload videos from the bag over 3G and automatic WiFi roaming could be really interesting. The built-in USB host could also host future wireless dongles such as WiMax, White Spaces, LTE or some wireless broadband technologies to make it even faster to upload HD videos using it.

Another really cool thing is that the H264 baseline 9mbit/s 1280x720 Sanyo HD1000 video files playback nearly flawlessly on this ARM Powered laptop using its media player application.

Engadget just posted this picture from the Dell event:

Dell Slate tablet

It's Android, it's Dell, it's 4.8" Tablet. But Dell seems to only be teasing about it. Engadget only saw it for about 3 seconds.
