Lots of news today, I’m diving straight into it...
1. Seagate Seven
Wished for a hard-drive that can fit into your pocket that wouldn’t make it look full? Introducing to you, Seagate Seven.
This beautiful 500 GB hard drive is just 7 mm thin: thinner than the iPhone 6 Plus (7.1 mm), or the Xperia Z3 (7.3 mm). It Is the slimmest hard drive in the world and is build in a unique stainless steel body.
You can pick one up now at $99, even in India. Sadly, there is no 1 TB version available though considering its design constraints 500 GB is a considerably large capacity.
2. Logitech UE MegaBoom
The UE Boom is rated to be the best bluetooth speaker in the world, and I mentioned it even in the Technonerds Toppers of 2014 lists. Logitech is coming out with a larger version of it… The UE MegaBoom, and I’m sure it will be a great upgrade to the bluetooth speaker list.
3. Nvidia Tegra X1
The X1 came out just today morning: a 256 core mobile “superchip” GPU that handles 4K@60fps and has a whopping 1 teraflop of power. That is a LOT of power in a chip smaller than your thumb.
Nvidia is looking to make big leaps in the smartphone world, but also the automobile world. The chip maker also came out with Drive CX and Drive PX, and Drive CX is the infotainment system that also handles multiple displays, internal temperatures and car ambience as such, while Drive PX will handle automatic parking and the car auto-pilot system. Both use the Tegra X1 chip.
4. Nokia 215
The 215 is Microsoft’s Nokia’s entry level internet phone that is aimed for poorer countries of Africa and Asia. It sells for just $29.
The 215 is a pretty cool phone: with a 29 day battery life, FM radio, 2G internet, Facebook, Opera mini browser, email, weather and a few games in the classic Nokia package. Only time will tell how well this phone will perform.
Thats about it for today. Loads of news popping live… keep a look onto the Tech news online at Cnet and The Verge.
