Meanwhile in Japan..

One day I want to live in Japan or South Korea, fair enough I would be a relative lumbering giant and have to learn a crazy new language but oh my days they are so much more technologically advanced than us in Europe! White Magic, white pixels for a better image really does give these crazy thin displays and amazing look, how much do I want one right now!

It is really worth noting to all you Jabber readers out there DigInfoNews is a really great cutting edge YouTube channel and is well worth following. Great reporters are never supposed to reveal their sources but in the liberal online collective community we at JabberingAtTheWorld hold true to the collective philosophy! 4 The of Science

More connectivity at a touch and innovative ideas are plenty, like:

But back to Britain with a bump where most of us including myself are waiting of fiber optic broad band, 4G to not be such a unbelievable rip off and always get newest gadgets after everyone else we seem to be getting there slowly but surely. I suppose it could be worse, at least we also have an abundance of talented people in Great Britain!

Surface

The former King of computing is on the come back, Microsoft released the new Surface Tablet/PC/Laptop for general sale from 25/10/12.

Just too much to cover!

There are two different versions of the surface that were announced the Surface RT and the Surface PRO.

Green Genius!

Get Leaner, Greener & Hella More Smarter!

Being a man who greatly appreciates this planet and finds the thought of facing extinction within a few generations extremely alarming I thought I would come off the glossy consumerist teat of new gadgets and look at new technologies that are looking to tackle climate change. Okay so the outlook is bleak, running out of fuel, food, water, ice and common decency these days with the ever growing influx of human kind, all 7+ billion of us and mainly the rise of the middle class in developing nations are all wannabe little Americans, which is bad news for us Europeans who fundamentally started it all.

In the vast subject of global warming/extinction of life as we know it in the universe there are fortunately quite a few people doing something about it and not just arguing and sitting idly by. New technologies are seeping in to the market, we have already seen allot of building insulation measures, low energy light bulbs and a few people putting solar panels on their roofs which is certainly a beginning on the road to the right track. However putting the issues of global warming and existing technologies aside it’s now time too look at some suggested ideas to combat carbon emissions.

Eco lamp posts that look futuristic and green is an interesting idea that has come from LA in the picture above, very contemporary and no need for them to be attached to the grid besides being able to turn them on and off. This kind of technology has been around for a little while but if green tech is made to look good then there is a stronger chance of the masses adopting and investing in such technologies, desirability is key! Another example can be seen where large scale infrastructure is evolving to combat climate change in an exciting adaptation of exiting technology; Concentrated Solar Power, explained below.

Electric cars have been coming on leaps and bounds and general fuel efficiency of modern vehicles in comparison to their predecessors even in the last 20 years has been staggering and extremely commendable. Other suggestions in the dawn of the end have yielded some far out scifi sounding ideas, such as vertical farming, carbon sequestration, efficient helix wind turbines, biomass energy, smart meters in homes and many more upcoming solutions.

A crazy suggestion that one day maybe far more valuable than gold mines is to buy former landfill sites, when the oil runs out you bet who ever is sitting on vast amounts of recyclable materials will make a pretty penny in the world of the morrow. You may think we are crazy now but if you look at the current trajectory of international trends there are big problems that will lay ahead, if we don’t untie to solve these problems then we will meet to fight for what Earth has left. The unification of greater processing power, human innovation and evolving technologies backed by sufficient political and social will is the best chance we have to save ourselves and our children.

Good evening and good will to all humans alike!

A Thin(g) of Beauty!

Yes the new iMac has been showcased by Apple today! And the new-fresh-looking iMac is available to see in all its glory on the Apple site RIGHT NOW!

You’d think it’d be the same iMac with just a slightly thinner screen. But you’d be wrong to think so. Dealing in all manner of percentages – The energy used is half what it used to be. Less reflectivity. More cores. More powerful. More storage.

Making things certainly come better in smaller packages!

The 21.5 inch piece of paper… I mean iMac comes out during November, with it’s wider/longer brother appearing a month later in December.

We suggest you get on the Apple website right now and check this beauty out!

The rumors were true, kudos PlayaNeox! They did have a little more to show us, after catching some reviews and having a play in the local Apple store we intend to give this little beaut a full review:

BIG Screens are coming!

HTC comes out of nowhere with a blinder, behold the HTC J Butterfly! Corr blimey look at it, she’s a looker..

HTC seem to have left other companies to make their fruit cocktail of names and the aim here is to rise above the rest with a serious piece of kit!  First the upsetting news, it’s only coming out in Japan to begin with but if this phone is as good as it looks and brings HTC back from the brink expect to see this device in a store near you soon!

The first 5 inch device to sport  Super LCD 3 display with a groundbreaking 1st: 1080 x 1920 – 1080p full HD screen on a smartphone of its comparable size. Still pumping out the tunes with Beats Audio and running Android’s Jelly Bean 4.1, we are certainly liking it thus far. 8MP camera, 1.5GHz quad Snapdragon processor, Micro SD slot, 2GB RAM,  4G of course and NFC.

Thus the war on big bezels has truly begun, edge to edge displays are definitely the way of the future, we are just a tad concerned about the battery life of the Butterfly but Moore’s Law is relentless! 2013 shall bring us plenty more technological delights to keep us Jabbering for a long time but we look forward to the day when this comes our way:
