Check out the below videos which features a sneak preview of the upcoming Sony Soundville ad campaign. Its based on some interesting experiments with audio technology, interestingly one of the comments on YouTube from the first video was “spoons and tea cups have never disturbed me like this before”. Well, ads can’t satisfy everyone, but yes, turning down your speakers just a touch would help!
Check out the two videos below…
Check out Mr Heck‘s latest laptop mod. The C64 lappie features a C64C motherboard, a Gamecube power supply, and special 1541-III DTV device that emulates a floppy drive using a FAT-32 formatted SD card, the rest of this mod’s design is in keeping with the beige 8-bit spirit of the original C64. For those who are too young to even know about the Commodore 64 (C64), its ancient, it really is. I believe it was first developed in the early 80s by Commodore International, and the 64 was the value of RAM it had, in those days it was 64 kb. By the way you can find out more about it through Wikipedia of course!
Is this be too good to be true? A slide of Dell’s upcoming roadmap for netbooks has leaked, so detailed that it even includes some of the specs of an unannounced Dell Mini 11. A Dell Mini 11 netbook sounds about right in the long term, but it seems Dell’s plans for the short term will be on the Mini 10. The current Dell Inspiron Mini 10 model will be getting upgrade options for Vista, a 3G modem, and potentially a 1.86GHz Atom on April 17th.
Orange has yet again launched something wonderful for the iPhone, but making it only available to France. French Orange iPhone users will have access to 60 TV channels, live, in high definition quality, over their local 3G network.
The application in question will be free from Apple’s App Store, whilst several of Orange’s pricey tariffs will incorporate unrestricted access to the service itself. For those without the relevant tariff, an add-on will be available for purchase for 9 euros per month.
Navigating the channels takes full advantage of the iPhone’s interface. They can be browsed in the extensively used Apple coverflow fashion, double tapping the screen will bring you out of the full screen view to access details of the programme, or alternative options.
As for those in the UK, you’re probably wondering whether something this cool may arrive across the channel anytime soon. The bad news is, because iPhones in the UK are sold through O2, this exclusive live TV service is unlikely to become available. Orange haven’t got a deal with Apple for the iPhone in the UK and therefore don’t have the rights to provide this service, sorry folks!
Here’s a video of what the iPhone TV app in question looks like, yes, its just made me even more jealous:

While in the middle of reviewing our recently received Arena, we came across this video of the GD900 which was demoed at the CTIA last week. Some of you may already be aware that the keypad isn’t actually “crystal”, but what we just learnt as well was that the transparent keypad also acts as a touchpad for typing, recognising gesture input and controlling the new S Class user interface. So not only is the LG GD900 going to be the world’s first transparent keypad mobile but dare I say also one with a touch sensitive keypad that doubles up as a secondary input component?
Another bit of something from the CTIA, this time this video is from MyPre, one of the sister sites of SlashGear. The Sprint Navigation app featured on the Palm Pre below is similar to the carrier’s TeleNav-powered navigation often seen on devices like the Samsung Instinct.
Check out the video after the jump…
Hope everyone is having a good start to the week. Here’s something which we meant to post about but somehow ended up not doing so earlier on this year. Its about Sony’s new Bravia TV range which focuses on being green, eco-friendly as well as power saving.
