In a time when just about everyone has his or her own free Web show, it only makes sense that you come to the table fully prepared to rock it... with a little help, that is. Or if you aren't the kind of multimedia, Web 2.0 junkie that I'm talking about, then you'll at least want to check out this awesome Web app the next time you have to give a presentation or otherwise impress people with your "impromptu" speaking skills.
I throw that word in quotes, because the Web app Cueprompter.com is akin to one giant cheat sheet for anything you want to type in. Input your text, select a few variables, and Cueprompter will transform your screen into a giant teleprompter--just like what you'd see as a news broadcaster. You can play and pause the scrolling text, alter the speed, and send it in reverse (or forward) to catch up to bits and pieces you might have accidentally missed (blame the assistant).
I’m having a problem with my default resolution when running Far Cry 2 in DirectX 10 mode. When I run Far Cry 2 in DirectX 9 everything seems to be OK, when I select DirectX 10 mode, the display expands to what looks like 860x600. I’m running the Asus PT6 Deluxe Motherboard, Intel Core i7 920, 12GB of DDR3, and Windows Vista x64. I have two ATI Radeon 4870s in CrossFire, running a Dell 24-inch LCD at 1920x1200 resolution. I’m using the latest ATI Catalyst Control and driver in CrossFire mode. What could be causing the problem?
The Universal Display Corporation (UDC) has finally started handing out details about their wrist-worn, flexible OLED prototype that they’ve been building with assistance from the US Department of Defense.
The 4-inch OLED screen will be meant for military servicemen in the near future. But, as you can see, the prototype still has plenty of work that needs to be done. UDC does plan to bring a working version with them to CES, allowing the curious public a hands-on chance with the OLED future. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out.
Fujitsu has taken a leaf out of Nintendo’s book – from the chapter Nintendo DS - by incorporating a second display in its new Lifebook N7010 notebook. The Lifebook N7010 has a 4-inch touch-screen panel to compliment its primary 16-inch display. The auxiliary display, which has been placed just above the keyboard, is meant to function as an application launcher. Users can also control media playback using the second display and view slideshows on it.
Additionally, users can easily multitask using the second display by dragging any application onto it. The notebook boasts of a 2.26 GHz Core 2 Duo Processor, up to 4GB RAM, 256 MB ATI HD 3470 video card, a maximum of 320GB storage space, Blu-ray ROM drive, HDMI-out, Bluetooth and 802.11N WiFi. Its modest battery life, which is claimed to be about 2.5 hrs, comes across as the only blemish, at least on paper. The Lifebook N7010 will begin shipping on November 10th with a starting price of $1499.
