Researchers at Hewlett-Packard have developed a working unit of a memory circuit that has existed in theory for 37 years, which could ultimately replace RAM and make computers more intelligent by tracking data it has retained.
So today's highly anticipated launch revealed the HTC Hero Android phone as everyone suspected. That in itself would have been a bit of a let down since we've known and speculated about the Hero for some time. Hardware wise it's not a million miles away from previous HTC Android phones. Yes, it has a 5 megapixel camera and finally a 3.5mm stereo headset jack but that's not much to get excited about.
But the real news was the announcement of HTC Sense, a customisable UI for Android. Now that's something I can get excited about. Rather than try to explain it, I think the official press release does a pretty good job so here goes:
What makes the natal project so damned awesome is that it allows you do more than just play games. You can move through menus by Moving your hands back and forth. The camera is so advanced it has awesome things like facial recognition and voice recognition. While your xbox is powered up and going, you can stand in front of natal and it will sign you in to your avatar.
Παρόλο που ακόμα αποτελεί μια ιδέα, το Roll Top ίσως να αποτελέσει το πρότυπο πάνω στο οποίο θα βασιστεί ο σχεδιασμός των μελλοντικών φορητών υπολογιστών.
