Bang & Olufsen caters to the iOS crowd with Apple TV-friendly BeoPlay V1 TV set, A3 iPad speaker dock

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

If your gadget life centers equally on Apple devices and luxury Danish home theater, Bang & Olufsen now has you officially covered. The BeoPlay V1 TV, which we got a sneak peek at just over a week ago, has a slot to connect your Apple TV without wires spoiling the look of your upscale loft. Both 32- and 40-inch versions have relatively powerful speakers, too, with as many as three 32W amps in the 40-inch version being joined by discrete treble / mid speakers and a bass unit. Either of the 1080p TVs carries a 100Hz refresh rate, five HDMI inputs, and a USB port for your music and photos. Just as new is a BeoPlay A3 speaker dock for the iPad, which nestles your first- or second-generation iPad into what Bang & Olufsen calls a “stable wedge” that not only keeps the iPad comfy but adapts the speakers to get maximum output. An eight-hour battery keeps the speakers completely wireless, although it won’t charge your iPad in the process. The company will have the V1 in British shops on May 3rd at a comparatively frugal £1,999 ($3,238) and £2,499 ($4,047) for the respective 32- and 40-inch sizes, while fans of Hamlet’s homeland will have to wait until May 23rd to pay £449 ($727) for an A3 dock, a picture of which you can find after the break.

MIT develops fog resistant, glare-free glass, it’s clearly amazing (video)

MIT develops fog resistant, glare-free glass, it's clearly amazing (video)

It sounds like it’s not just us that spend half our sweet time with lint-free cloth in hand. Researchers at MIT have developed a new type of glass that “virtually eliminates” reflections, and is also water-repellent. By using techniques from the semiconductor industry, conical nano-textures etched into the layered surface that give the wonder-glass its fog, glare and self-cleaning properties. The hope is that the technology will find its way into our many daily screens and even windows. It’s not all about gadget vanity though; solar panels lose efficiency over time through residual surface build up, and using the new glass could go some way to eliminate that issue. If they can just remember where they put the ultra-clear test sample that is.

Is this RIM’s BlackBerry 10 development device?

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Image

You know the drill — grab yourself a spoonful of Morton’s and get ready for another supposed leak of a gadget. This time around, you’re looking at what’s claimed as being of Research In Motion’s BlackBerry 10 “Development Alpha” devices that will be handed out during next week’s BlackBerry Jam — just like the company promised a month ago. Images of the device first surfaced over at Crackberry’s forums and, as the site points out, the touchscreen candy bar seems to share its design DNA with the PlayBook. Keeping in mind that it’s likely to remain a testing device for devs, don’t bank on it ever hitting store shelves. That said, we’re now curious how pivotal a roll RIM’s famous tactile keyboards will play on its next-generation phones — if any. Head over to the sources links below if you’d like to catch more photos from Mr. Blurrycam and extra information in the meantime.

Pub owner Karen Murphy wins appeal in TV-decoder battle against Sky

Pub owner Karen Murphy wins appeal in TV-decoder battle against Sky
It’s been a few months since we last heard about the legal kerfuffle between Sky and pub owner Karen Murphy. In case you’ve been out of the loop, it all started when the UK broadcasting giant went after Murphy for using what was deemed to be an illegal method for screening FA Premier League matches at her, or any, bar. The Greece Nova decoder, which is considered a legal bit in the privacy of your own home, was helping Murphy bypass Sky’s £480 ($740) required monthly fees for bar owners and saving her over £350 ($555) in the process. Now, over $260,000 in legal fees later, Mrs. Murphy’s conviction has been overturned by the relentless High Court. The ruling allows her to keep using the troubled Greek gadget to screen any EPL game without facing any troubles — except the occasional drunken fracas. So, now you know where to go the next time you’re in Portsmouth and want to catch a good ol’ footy match.

There’s literally no app for this: KIRF iPhone-branded gas stoves seized by Chinese authorities

Friday, February 24th, 2012
Ordinarily, if you use your iPhone to fry eggs, it’s time to check when your warranty expires. Not so for these KIRF iPhones, which can’t make calls or download apps (let alone use Siri) but can fry your bacon rather well. 681 of these bafflingly branded gas stoves were seized by police in Wuhan, each bearing the legend “Apple China Limited.” Apparently the units did not come with flame-out protection and only ran iOS 4.1, leading to the swoop. We should probably take that as solid confirmation that the iPhone 6′s killer feature is going to involve making brunch on the go.

New iPad 3 images give us a better look at Apple’s redesign

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

We have previously seen images of the iPad 3′s reworked case design, however new images published on Tuesday give us a better look at the subtle differences we can expect from Apple’s next-generation tablet when it launches next month. The photographs, which were posted by MIC Gadget, reveal that the slate is between 1 and 1.5 millimeters thicker than the iPad 2, however it still fits in some iPad 2 cases according to the report. The iPad 3′s rear shell has a more gradual taper to the edges of the tablet, and it features a narrower bezel and larger camera lens compared to its predecessor. The iPad 3 is expected to be equipped with a 9.7-inch Retina Display, an 8-megapixel camera, embedded 4G LTE and a larger battery. Apple is reportedly planning to unveil the iPad 3 at a press conference on March 7th. Hit the break for additional iPad 3 images.
