The latest MacBook and iMacs with upgraded specs are great, however they are still missing one thing which many PCs are now beginning to have – touchscreen technology. This is especially so since Windows 7 now officially supports the use of touchscreens. Though MacBooks and iMacs with touchscreens are not actually being produced and sold by Apple and instead by Troll Touch, a company with a long history of enabling touch technology for Apple computer products.
Apple has unveiled their fastest iMac yet. A 21.5-inch or 27-inch 16:9 widescreen display with edge-to-edge glass cover just like that of the MacBook Pro. Both iMacs will sport Core2Duo and new i5/i7 quadcore chips. Wireless keyboard and get this, Apple’s new multitouch Magic Mouse will come as standard!
For those keen on checking out the latest tech that are currently in development, here’s a video that is well worth watching (it is eight minutes long possibly NSFW!). Microsoft is showing off five concept mice with added functionality. All of them seek to replace traditional move-and-click with touch sensitivity through either capacitive sensing, video recognition, sensor articulation, or laser scanning.
Multi-touch technologies are all the rage, letting people use multiple fingers to zoom, pinch and manipulate objects on screen in everything from the iPhone to Microsofts upcoming Windows 7 operating system. But what about multi-touch on a mouse?
Only have a short while since we last posted the LG Viewty Smart GC900‘s video, LG have now announced its availability in the UK.
Just to recap for those who may not have heard about the Viewty Smart. It can be considered as the second generation of the original highly successful LG Viewty, five megapixel camera phone. Like the Viewty, Viewty Smart focuses heavily on mobile photography, boasting a three inch WVGA display and equipped with an eight megapixel camera with LED flash. Full press release to follow after the jump.
I suppose the title could also be called rich people furnitures too. Do you have a laptop and often like to do your work on it while sitting in front of your tv? Well now you don’t need to make it so complicated. No more dragging the laptop out into the lounge and run out of battery after a few hours, then to find yourself looking for the laptop power adapter. Because the Athena Multimedia Sofa will take care of all of that, it’s got its own built in pc. The designer Artanova hasn’t given any specs, but from what it looks like, the display should have touch capability. The luxury though does come at an eye-popping price of approx. $15,436, which seems like a bit over the top in these hard times – so the PC in this sofa better be a quiet one, if not that would be quite annoying!
