What the heck is Alphainventions.com

If you are the type of person that wants to know who is driving people to your site blog then you will notice a name Alphainventions.com.
I was checking my stats on my blogs and this name keeps popping up in my stats referral. So the curiosity got the best of me and I had to go and check Alphainventions.com out for myself.
I read the About Me page and I love this guys statement:


"First off my name is Cheru Jackson, and I’m just a regular working guy with an apartment and an old car with a big imagination. I don’t think like anyone in this world, because if I did I would not have been able to create alphainventions.com  I just ate a McChicken, and I’m a little sleepy.
The blogs and links appearing on my site are just the most recently updated blogs from people like yourself."

This is a great site and needs to be used by as many people such as bloggers and webmasters as much as possible. I am getting to be a real fan of alphainventions.com, first of all it drives a lot of traffic to my blogs and it is simple to use.

So what is alphainventions.com? Like I mentioned above I went to the site to find out what the heck it is. When I entered the site I was a little afraid since there are so many viruses floating around out on the web. I was happy to find a blog pop up and not some pornsite. After what seemed like 20 or 30 seconds another blog popped up. Ok what is going on here I thought. Then another 30 seconds pasted and another blogged came up. Looking at the tool bar at the top of the screen I noticed a pause button. Ok cool I thought, here is a great little invention to get your blog noticed by people. The site seems to spin blogs about every 30 seconds and if you see something that you like you hit the pause button and it will leave the blog that you are interested in stand still for you to read.

This site"http://alphainventions.com/" is NOT a bunch of garbage and it needs some more traffic to flow to it. So go check it out and give me your feedback.

The Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series

The Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series
 Here at HighTech Mechanic we are trying to keep you up with all the new gadgets out on the market for 2011.
Wow Samsung has done it again. This new mix between a tablet and laptop is a whole new design that is catching everyone off guard.

The Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series is a  mix between a tablet and a laptop. Designed to function primarily as a tablet, but featuring a slide-out hardware keyboard, it’s meant for those who want the tablet experience, but also need a hardware keyboard handy at all times. It’s running Windows 7 Home Premium, and features WiFi and 3G connectivity. There’s Bluetooth, and the device will support Samsung App integration. There will be 35 apps available for it on release.
For those who need to have accessories, owners will be able to connect their USB peripherals and HDMI connectors to the device and it has the usual ports such as SD slot as well.

The device has been shown at CES and Barbara Krasnoff over on Computerworld had a look at it and reports that the change between using it as a tablet or a notebook is smooth. The device has a 10-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution and the keyboard is produced by pushing the display back which is pretty ingenious.

There’s also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and the battery should last you 9 hours on a single charge. The price should be in the neighborhood of $699 and the release date is projected for March.

Supposedly the next iPhone and iPad will have a dual core graphics chip

From AppleInsider "Apple's next generation iPad and iPhone, both due the first half of this year, will pack a new version of the company's custom A4 chip, with dual, faster graphics cores capable of supporting a Retina Display iPad and potentially bringing 1080p HD support to iOS devices, including Apple TV."

More precisely, the chip in question should be a dual-core SGX543 GPU from Imagination Technologies. The rumor goes hand in hand with another rumor that claims the iPad 2 will have a much higher resolution screen than its predecessor, although the jury is still out on the exact number of pixels it’ll have.

The SGX543 graphics chip will most probably be paired up with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, which should make the iPad 2 a very powerful machine, more than capable of playing HD video.



It's important to note that the core specifications of a chip are not always directly proportional to its actual performance, and that what Apple does in software is often just as important than the hardware itself.

Nvidia's original Tegra chip was expected to blow the iPod touch out of the water when it appeared in Microsoft's Zune HD and subsequently the KIN, but that didn't happen.

On the other hand, over-exuberant reports also accompanied the A4. Last year, a report made prior to the A4's introduction, by the "Bright Side of News" blog, imagined that it might include a Cortex-A9 MPCore and an ARM-designed Mali 50-series GPU core. Jon Stokes of Ars Technica correctly described the A4 as being a single Cortex-A8 CPU and a PowerVR SGX GPU.

However, Stokes also added that it "isn't anything to write home about," and predicted that the A4 would skip on power by omitting camera processing features, making it unsuitable for use in a smartphone.

Another report, appearing in The New York Times last February, stated that Apple, Nvidia and Qualcomm were all working to develop their own ARM-based chips before noting that "it can cost these companies about $1 billion to create a smartphone chip from scratch." Developing an SoC based on licensed ARM designs is not "creating a chip from scratch," and does not cost $1 billion, but the article set off a flurry of reports that said Apple has spent $1 billion on the A4.

Moneual Labs Dual-Screen PC case perfect for HTPC

Moneual Labs is no stranger to unusual PC cases – their I magine HTPC grabbed a CES Innovation award back in 2008 – and while the new Dual Screen PC (DSPC) case might have a more traditional basic form-factor, we’re liking the huge integrated display. Details are scant – all Moneual says is that the DSPC is “a tower‐type slim PC case with a built-in screen for use in dual-screen mode with a standard monitor” – but it doesn’t take much to realise that this would make for an awesome HTPC setup.
The bulk of the fascia is taken up by a broad display – no word on whether it’s a touchscreen or not – which can be used to show icons and widgets; there’s also an optical drive slot and various ports. We can imagine slotting the DSPC under our HDTV, using the big screen for video playback and the onboard display for status and control.

The CES 2011 team obviously liked the DSPC case too; they’ve given Moneual Labs another Innovations award, one of six this year. The Moneual Labs DSPC is expected to go on sale in Q3 2011, priced at around $1,500.
