Dell has launched its latest 20-inch HD widescreen monitor: ST2010. It features HD playback capabilities with a 1600 x 900 resolution for a true 16:9 aspect ratio, and an HDMI input for rapid transfer of high quality video and audio. The HDMI input also allows you to connect the monitor to a HD games console or blu-ray player. Other features of the Dell ST2010 includes a fairly standard 5-millisecond response time and a 1000:1 contrast with a 160 degree viewing angle. The Dell ST2010 uses a highly efficient two lamps direct backlight system for as much as 25% energy savings compared to similar monitors using four lamps. It is estimated that the Dell ST2010 will cost around US $120 to $130.
Google has announced three new enchancement to its search engine at their event called Searchology: Google Search Options, Google Squared, and Rich Snippets. The aim is to give searchers new ways to filter results based on factors like timeliness, result type such as image or videos, or a desire to see search results in visual form.
With Search Options, the results page gives you more options and allows you to show and hide options. It is hoping that this feature will provide more useful results and a better search experience for its users.
Google Squared is the newest addition to Google Labs. It will be available later this month. Google Squared allows searchers to create a spreadsheet based on Web results. Users can filter the data accessed through the Google Squared search, request additional categories to create a custom spreadsheet with the results that matter the most to them, and even fact-check the results by accessing the source of the data as well as alternate sources.
The third product announced is Rich Snippets, which show extra metadata in results, things like user reviews and the cost of products.
According to a leaked roadmap of upcoming phones for later this year from Walmart, the below is called Morrison or aka Bigfoot. Many believe this isn’t going to be a new HTC Android phone instead, a revised version of the G1 or second gen G1 if you like. As you can see it sports a full slide-out HTC-style QWERTY keyboard, great for those who are keen on texts. BGR reports that the Bigfoot is likely to drop in October later this year for $148 with a 2-year agreement at Walmart. As for us in the UK, we’re not too sure whether it will actually make its way here.
