Nokia Lumia 610 NFC hits the market

Posted: 11 Apr 2012 09:30 AM PDT

Yes, we do know that there exists a smartphone which runs on the Windows Phone platform known as the Nokia Lumia 610, but here is a refreshing take on said handset by the Finnish mobile phone manufacturers – by throwing in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability, and hence, the smartphone is now called the Nokia Lumia 610 NFC. How apt, and simple, of course. Leaked earlier this morning, it did not take too long before Nokia decided to let the cat out of the bag officially by introducing an NFC version of the recently launched Nokia Lumia 610.

As for the mobile carriers who will deliver the Nokia Lumia 610 NFC to the masses, Orange is first in line. As for the rest of the carriers, I guess patience is the best policy here. It should arrive in due time, so hold on to your current device if you are itching for an upgrade.

Just to make sure we are all on the same page, what does NFC stand for? It means Near Field Communication, and is a method for two different devices to “talk” to one another, thanks to the wonders of radio communication. There are two ways to approach the matter of devices communicating with one another sans wires via NFC, you can simply touch them together, or holding them in close proximity.

Your new NFC-enabled phone will allow you to transfer items such as photos or contact information from one phone to another by just placing them together. There ought to be a secure element in place in the phone if you want to get down and dirty with payments in stores, and for the more adventurous, how about using your device as a portable travel ticket? Governments everywhere will need to look into upgrading the public infrastructure if NFC technology catches on with the majority of smartphone users.

4 Color LCD Weather Station

Posted: 11 Apr 2012 09:00 AM PDT

For those of us who have been alive for quite some time already, don’t you feel that the weather has gone all wonky on us? Back then, we more or less could anticipate just what kind of weather happens at a particular season. These days, things are a whole lot more different. Winter arrives late on some continents, it starts to pour during the dry season, and the monsoon season sees very little rain. Overall global temperatures have gone up, and the weather’s a whole lot crazier now, although the weather report segment on the evening news continues to fail to entertain. Why bother with a suited man or lady telling you what tomorrow’s weather is like when you have the $79.99 4 Color LCD Weather Station?

This unique device will show indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, current weather conditions, heat index, and dew point. Not only that, to make sure you get out of bed even during the coldest mornings, the 4 Color LCD Weather Station comes with a built-in alarm clock function, displaying the date, time, and even the moon phase so that you can avoid werewolves on select evenings.

Inflatable Windsurfer And Sailboat

Posted: 11 Apr 2012 08:30 AM PDT

If you hear the call of the seven seas, then chances are you might fancy a boat yourself. Unfortunately, to own a boat would definitely cost you a fair amount of money, and even more so if you are talking about a luxury yacht. Good thing there are always alternatives around, and we are talking about the $799.95 Inflatable Windsurfer And Sailboat. This particular inflatable watercraft will be able to convert from a windsurfer to a sailboat, where it sports an 11.5′-tall aluminum mast that will offer adequate support for its 33′ sq. PVC sail. A trio of fiberglass battens will ensure it remains taut during gusts for consistent powered gliding.

There is also an integrated boom that delivers deft steering of the sail by hand when it is used as a windsurfer, where it is capable of catching the wind easily (and outrun the Black Pearl that is commandeered by the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow, perhaps?), ensuring you continue to maintain a sturdy foothold on the hull. The foot pump that came with the Inflatable Windsurfer And Sailboat will let you inflate its PVC hull in a mere 10 minutes, and the whole thing can be stowed away in under 10 minutes.

Sony E Series 14P laptops boasts of gesture-based controls

Posted: 11 Apr 2012 08:00 AM PDT

It seems that gesture-based controls which were made famous by the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Kinect has now spilled over (in some way, so to speak) to the world of laptops, as Sony’s latest E Series 14P laptops that will hit Europe will also boast Sony’s very own Gesture Control feature, letting you swipe your finger between pages as well as adjust your music accordingly. Of course, right now, these gesture-based controls will play nice only with Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer 9, PowerDVD and PowerPoint, although who are we to rule out future compatibility settings? No idea on how much the Sony VAIO E Series 14P laptops will cost, but that ought to be fixed in due time.

About the specifications, the E Series 14P laptops will feature a 14″ display at 1366 x 768 resolution, running on an Intel Core i3 2550M processor, accompanied by 4GB RAM and a choice between the AMD Radeon HD 7670M or Intel HD Graphics 3000. Regardless of the model, you should be able to eke out around 7 hours of battery life from them. The inclusion of the new Rapid Wake + Eco will allow you to get in on the action within moments. This particular energy-saving mode will send the VAIO into an ultra-low power deep sleep (like the Odin-sleep in the Thor comics from Marvel?), ensuring your data is retained for up to 10 days. When you decide to have it awake from its slumber by opening its lid, it will take mere seconds to get you up and running.

Not only that, organizing, editing and sharing your media collection has been made all the easier with the VAIO E Series. PlayMemories Home by Sony is thrown into the mix for free, letting you add effortless polish to your photos and video clips in a jiffy.

The new VAIO E Series 14P will come in a choice of white, black or pink shades, although other colors and configurable options are available at Sony Store Online. Gotta love what they are offering for sure!

Verbarius Digitless Clock

Posted: 10 Apr 2012 06:30 AM PDT

Back in the early days, men used a sundial to tell the time of the day, relying on just how far the shadow has fallen. However, technological advancements and an inquisitive mind has seen time telling transform to use hands, and the analog clock was soon challenged by the digital format. However, with the $189.99 Verbarius Digitless Clock, the name says it all – it will not contain any digits, and neither will it tell the time in a traditional manner of using two hands.

Instead, it will verbalize the current time, just like how you and I answer someone when asked for the time. I guess this is the ideal device to pick up the time in a new language, as you can choose from five preloaded languages – English, German, Spanish, French and Russian, with the option to download a dozen other languages according to the instructions given in the box. It is powered by a 110/220v power source, and thankfully there is a backup battery in the event of a power failure.
