One of the original reasons I bought my first ipod (first gen 5 Gig) was that I could hook it up to my mac and use it as a firewire drive. I could literally run around with this in my pocket and boot OSX off the ipod. Well that came to an end with the intro of iPhone/iTouch. Apple took the “disk mode” out. Well that was then, go grab a FREE copy of iPhone explorer and all that USB stick functionality can be your again. Oh, and did I say there is no need for Jail Break either :-)

The answer to that is maybe, we’ll see. But all that aside if you’re interested in a minimalistic video player that can handle more codecs than VLC and is generally faster then give Movist a try.
The unique thing about the player is that it allows you to switch codec engines between ffmpeg and quicktime based on file extensions. Oh and did I say it’s FREE aswell :-).

A new large-format multi-touch technology launched today by DISPLAX, a developer of interactive technologies, will transform any non-conductive flat or curved surface into a multitouch screen. The DISPLAX Multitouch Technology, believed to be the first of its kind, has been developed based on a transparent thinner-than-paper polymer film. When applied to glass, plastic or wood, the surface becomes interactive.
It can be applied to flat or curved, opaque as well as transparent surfaces up to three metres across the diagonal. It is hyper sensitive, allowing users to interact with an enabled surface not just by touching it but, for the first time, by blowing on it, opening up new possibilities for future applications. Currently, the technology can detect up to 16 fingers on a 50-inch screen. The number of fingers detected is expected to increase as development progresses.
Based on patent-pending projected capacitive technology, DISPLAX Multitouch Technology uses a controller that works by processing multiple input signals it receives from a grid of nanowires embedded in the film attached to the enabled surface. Each time a finger is placed on the screen or a user blows on the surface, a small electrical disturbance is caused. The micro-processor controller analyses this data and decodes the location of each input on that grid to track the finger and air-flow movements. The DISPLAX Multitouch technology controller combined with a projected capacitive nanowired film is a lightweight and highly scalable solution, ranging from seven inches (18 centimetres) to three metres across the diagonal thus opening up a wide range of commercial applications suitable for indoor or outdoor displays.
The DISPLAX Multitouch Technology will begin shipping in July 2010. The prices will be very competitive and depend on size.

Head over to pdfmyurl.com and check out how easy it is to turn any website into a pdf document. You don’t need to install anything, everything is done through the web and it’s FREE. They also have a bookmarklet you can drag to your bookmark bar for easy pdf’ing :-). There are also a ton of options available under the advanced options including a juicy wget command that can potentially be scripted to traverse an entire website and turn it into a pdf file ;-).
JVC today announced their upcoming DLA-SH7NL DCinema Projector. A 4K2K D-ILA projector incorporating three 1.27″ 4K2K D-ILA display devices and packing dual mercury lamps for 5000 Lumens of brightness. The new machine — like its predecessor DLA-SH4K — achieves a resolution of roughly 10MP (4096×2400 pixels), plus a stunning 10,000:1 native contrast ratio.
