    Toys For Techs

    Discussion started by <KEY3> - Jan 5, 2005

    an open call for gadjets and gizmos that tech friendly people are into.


    let me start it off with this new toy I ordered (yes.. online) this afternoon.

    I just got a computer at home, but no internet, so I found myself burning
    a cd every night with things to take home from work. So that made me look
    at getting a USB jump drive. Well this one is 256MB AND it's an mp3 player.
    Yes I know everyone should have an ipod.... but for $90 you cant go wrong.

    ^ all the classic atari games in a controller that plugs directly into the TV.
    Sure the games arent great, and you can get them all as free roms,
    but having that classic controller sitting on your coffee table is sure to impress.
    well maybe not the girls.... but it will impress your nerd friends.

    OLED monitors!

    [​IMG]

    Competition is heating up as companies accelerate their moves to develop the next generation of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays.

    OLED display responses are 1,000 times faster than liquid crystal displays (LCDs), thus enabling greater resolution. The display's ability to function perfectly without a backlight means that monitors can be produced with one-third the depth of their LCD rivals.

    Samsung Electronics announced Tuesday that it has developed the world's largest active matrix-based (AM) OLED display panel for digital televisions. Souk Jun-hyung, senior vice president of the LCD research and development center, said that the 21-inch OLED display features the highest resolution at 6.22 million pixels.

    Last October, LG Philips LDC developed a 20.1-inch OLED television in conjunction with LG Electronics, and last May, Samsung SDI released its own 17-inch OLED product. The two companies adopted low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) for their products to ensure they have longer life spans and higher resolution.

    At present, OLED displays are largely restricted to mobile phone use, but it is likely that large OLED-paneled televisions will replace PDP and LCD TVs in a few years.

    According to a survey by Display Search, the global OLED market is expected to grow in scale from US$330 million (W343.8 billion) last year to $830 million in 2005 and $2.2 billion by 2008.

    key, homie, you live in the city. get a wireless network card for your computer and rack internet service. no excuses.

    secondly, $90? i've seen 512mb memory sticks for like $30-40. they dont play music, but music is gay. however, if you want music, ipod is coming out with flash based ipods next week. 1 and 2 gig models starting at $149.

    not trying to rain on your parade, just trying to put you on.

    yo seeks.... the iPod mini IS flash memory.

    I know I can get cheaper memory sticks,
    but for some reason this one just called out to me.

    yeah, but it's like 'super flash' on crank or something.
    the new ones are just standard flash.

    Ipod mini is a music player with a compact flash interface hard drive, not flash memory.

    http://www.engadget.com/ is an awesome website for these kinds of things.

    a USB cup warm..

    thats some star trek shit.

    Orange.. a rather large french/english cellphone service provider ..did a project a year or so back involving wearable lcds (located as 2"x2" screens on shirts and jackets) which.. displayed sms animated graphics... it was pretty simple.. but funny..because recently NOKIA also presented a similar idea..although this time it was fashioned as jewelry.. (necklaces and cellphone charms) which would download images and so forth.

    not that i would be interested in buying any of it.. i still think its a quirky novelty...that i thought id mention.
