Digital Hour Glass Watch

Text Link Ads

Sand+Time Watch is a project that unites modern technologies and old ways of measuring time. Sand+Time offers its wearer the time in modern electronic hours, but the form of the interface has also been borrowed from an old sand hourglass. The watch functions in two modes. The first, the screensaver, takes the form of a sand hourglass counting a certain time unit set by the user to their preference. (The default setting for the hourglass is to count one minute.) The second mode displays the time in numbers – the most common electronic interface for the modern person.

20GB PS3 Discontinued by Sony

Text Link Ads

Apr 13, 2007
According to reports, Sony has confirmed the discontinuation of the 20 GB model of PlayStation 3.

The official announcement from Sony reads,
At launch, we offered two separate models of PlayStation 3 to meet the diverse needs and interests of our PlayStation fan base. Initial retail demand in North America was upwards of ninety percent in favor of the 60GB SKU, so we manufactured and shipped-in accordingly.

The announcement further reads,
Due to the overwhelming demand for the 60GB model from both retailers and consumers, we have ceased offering the 20GB model in North America. In addition to the larger internal hard drive, the 60GB PlayStation 3 features added storage media slots and built-in Wi-Fi not found in the 20GB system. Based on retailer and consumer feedback, we have decided to focus our current efforts on the more popular 60GB model.

Apparently, the reason behind discontinuing of the 20 GB model has much to do with pricing and lack of certain features in this model vs-a-vs the 60GB one. The 20 GB model was available for a price of $499, where as the 60 GB model is available for $600.

It's obvious most buyers would prefer buying a bigger and better PS3 for a few dollars (read: $100) more...

However, those who already own a 20GB model need not worry, as the company has reportedly assured these customers of continued support the same as promised upon purchase.

Toshiba Qosmio G40 LapDesktop

Text Link Ads

Here s a sneak peek at the specs for one of Toshiba s Qosmio GXX line of desktop replacements:
The Qosmio G40. Not only does it have a 17 1920 x 1200 screen, its dual 200GB hard drives, T7300P Core 2 Duo processor (Santa Rosa) and 2GB of RAM make it rocking!

The other usual basic necessities for such a high configured system are obviously included, but with the 512MB GeForce 8600M GT graphics, an HD DVD-R drive and HDMI 1.3 in the mix makes it even more interesting. The laptop will most probably be out initially in Europe sometime in June, with a whopping price of around 3000/$4000 (Rs.1, 71,070). So this one is just a look-but-don t-touch item for now.

Rumors about a QWERTY keyboard to support the Xbox 360 have been around for quite some time now and I am sure you will be glad to know that Microsoft has come up with a thumb keyboard for the 360, adding this to its ever growing list of peripherals.

There are a few things you must know before you decide to get one of these:

* The thumb keyboard plugs into the headphone/data jack on the bottom of the controller.

* It comes bundled with its own headset since it doesn't pass the signal through, and
cannot work with current peripherals.

* The keyboard is backlit; the chat bubble icon in the photos is an MSN icon.

MasterSeek : Business Search engine and Import Export Directory

Text Link Ads

First, in building a successful company, one must have a good reputation in the corresponding area of activity. The easiest and most popular manner of achieving this goal in these modern times is by means of the Internet.

If you are the manager of a newly founded company, you can hire a specialist to design an Internet site, buy a domain and wait for the customers. Nevertheless, there is an easier way to get onto the online market. You can enter your company’s data and information on a business search engine.

In order to have an account on an export import directory, for example, the manager of a company needs to provide a brief description of the enterprise, including the number of employees, area of activity, and whether there are other places, in which the company is active. In addition, pictures and images of the company’s products should make the object of an upload over the Internet.

The purpose of a business search engine is to familiarize people with your company’s profile and area of activity. It provides a chance for companies from other countries to begin a partnership with new enterprises. Searching for partners is very easy. You just have to search for the country that has caught your interest and for the domain of activity where you want to collaborate, and you will obtain a reliable inventory of potential partners. Next, all you have to do is make the selection that suits you best.

Naturally, a reliable business search engine will be available in a certain variety of languages. This will make things a lot easier for both of the partners involved. In this manner, you may be certain that a potential foreign partner will understand your expectations and, of course, you get to understand their expectations in your turn.

Of course, searching for partners abroad is not the only option on a business search engine. You can also search for potential partnerships within the borders of your own country. Nevertheless, an export import directory is useful in such situations, as it saves a lot of time that you would have otherwise spent on doing research on other companies with the same area of activity as yours.

On such a site as an export import directory, one can find, apart from the useful data about companies worldwide, other information. If you are looking for partners in a specific area of the globe, after you have found them, it is easy to find accommodation in the area, by using the same Internet site. You can also find out how you can reach that certain country, by way of plane, train, boat or car – whichever suits you best.

Search results are always reliable on an export import directory. As companies need that their image forms the object of very serious consideration from potential partners and / or potential customers, they work hard in improving their offer and their account on the export import directory. They keep their page up to date and the information presented there is accurate and reliable.

Commerce and business over the Internet is currently one of the most flourishing areas of activity including niche areas like restaurant supplies. It renders partnership between companies – foreign or not – a lot easier and faster. It also provides a chance for expansion for many companies. Finding partners abroad has become a much easier task due to the implementation of business search engines.
