Samsung LNT4061F 40" 1080p LCD HDTV

Samsung LNT4061F 40

For people looking to step up to full 1080p resolution in a 40-inch flat-panel LCD, Samsung's 2007 model LNT4061FF is a good choice. Besides offering full 1080p resolution the LNT4061F also features a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for rich blacks and subltle texture display, an 8ms response time panel for smooth motion, hidden side speakers, an NTSC tuner, and 3 HDMI ports.

Compared to other Samsung Models
The primary differences between Samsung's LNT4061F and the LNT4065F LCD HDTV is in the contrast ratio and video processing power. The pricier LNT4065F offers a 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio compared to this model's 10,000:1 ratio, and also offers full 10bit video processing over this model's 8 bit system. The more expensive model should display finer gradients of shading making for more detail in darker scenes. The video processing difference should ensure smoother motion in fast moving scenes for the LNT4065F.

Video Processing
The Samsung Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) Video Enhancer refines all analog NTSC and wideband video inputs for an overall improvement in picture quality. DNIe improves contrast, white level, picture detail and incorporates digital noise reduction to improve lower quality video inputs. The 3D Y/C digital comb filter constantly analyzes the three dimensions of picture height, picture width, and picture changes-over-time to dramatically reduce edge image artifacts while improving transition detail.

Miuchiz Virtual Companions - Bratz Babyz Cloe

Miuchiz Virtual Companions

"I’m Cloe! I’m not a drama queen—more like a drama princess!" Welcome to a whole new world of virtual friends…the world even has a name: Planet Mion. Players can interact with the Miuchiz personal digital character (Bratz Babyz Cloe, in this case) in all the usual virtual companion ways (keeping Cloe happy, fed, and amused), but then they can step up the action by plugging the unit into a computer’s USB port to go online to Planet Mion. Here Cloe interacts live with any other Miuchiz characters that happened to be plugged in—anywhere in the world (Earth, that is)! She can shop, connect with new and old friends, visit a salon, try on clothes, and play oodles of games.

The three main modes of play—single player, two player, or on-line—allow Cloe’s Earthling friends to interact with her any time, anywhere. They can even help Cloe trade items with other Miuchiz pals. Keep in mind that in the on-line mode players (with Mom and Dad’s help) will first have to set up an account and download software to their computer. Twenty-first century kids, savvy about technology, will have no problem navigating through Planet Mion with Cloe. Parents can rest assured that, even when entering the on-line mode, there are enough checks and balances to make sure all interactions are kid-friendly and age-appropriate. Requires three "AAA" batteries (batteries are included for demonstration purposes only).--Emilie Coulter

Mori 1.6 digital notebook

Hog Bay Software today released Mori 1.6, a digital notebook that makes it easy to record and organize notes. Mori provides a place to remember notes and organize ideas, allowing users to search through an entire notebook with its built-in search engine, or via Mac OS X's Spotlight search. Leveraging the familiar Mail-style interface, users can sort, tag, link, and alias notes as well as use Smart Folders and Tag Folders to collect and organize matching notes. Version 1.6 adds support for a del.icio.us-style tagging system for structuring notes outside of the traditional file / folder hierarchical structure. It also adds new interface elements to view and edit these tags as well as new "Tag Folder" entry types, which not only find matching entries based on a search criteria, but also allow users to drag and drop entries onto tag folders to match the tag folder's search criteria. Mori requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and is available for $40.

Dates and information on Halo 3 Beta released

Halo 3 is Microsoft's premier gaming property. While Gears of War may be making headlines with its impressive sales numbers and online adoption, only Halo 3 could get away with a $130 edition of the game. The fires of anticipation will burn even hotter now that Microsoft and Bungie have announced that the "open" beta of Halo 3 will begin on May 16 at 5 AM PDT and run until June 6 when it closes at 11:59 PM PDT. This will allow selected gamers to get a taste of what they can look forward to in the retail game, as well as providing Microsoft with a large-scale stress test of the Live servers.

The beta will include three maps: Snowbound, High Ground, and Valhalla, as well as at least one new vehicle, the Mongoose ATV. The press release also confirms the inclusion of the new Assault Rifle, Brute Spiker, the Spartan Laser, and the Spike Grenades. While not an extensive list of maps and vehicles so far, it should at least whet the appetites of gamers looking forward to the new and improved Halo experience.

There were three ways for gamers to gain admittance into the Halo 3 beta. Lucky gamers who could get through the site crashes and Internet congestion of the first day of beta signups may have simply been selected to receive an invitation. Microsoft and Bungie also had a "rule of three" promotion where gamers could play three hours of Halo 2 online from February 1 to February 3 and hope to receive an invitation for that feat. The third way was to simply buy your way in: a beta invitation comes with certain copies of the surprisingly high-quality 360 game Crackdown.

There has also been a new video titled "Is Quisnam Protero Damno!" released that you can download directly from Bungie.net, or find on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The video gives you an in-depth look at High Ground and shows off some of the design decisions that went into designing that asymmetrical map. There is also talk about why the Assault Rifle works so well in the context of a Halo deathmatch, and some information on how the game will let you capture and replay key moments from your multiplayer matches. The Bubble Shield and Trip Mines look particularly useful in nasty, one-on-one situations.

Bungie has become a master of releasing just enough information about Halo 3 to keep the gaming press and the players excited about the game, and this beta and video is more evidence of that strategy. We'll have more details about game play and the quality of the maps when the Beta launches in May.

A Black Hole for Computers

It may sound an overstatement but recent facts suggest that US Institutions represent for computers what the Bermuda triangle represents for airplanes and boats: a black hole.

The New York Times reported last week that 20 desktop computers are missing from the US government department responsible for safeguarding technical secrets about nuclear weapons from foreign spies.

At least 14 computers on 20 have been used for classified data processing.

The investigation made clear that official procedures were partially respect or weren’t respected since a recent audit by the Energy Department inspector general discovered that the department used computers not listed in internal inventories and one computer previously listed as “destroyed”.

Such situation is aggravated by the fact that it is the thirteenth time in four years that an audit has highlighted the leaks in the US Agency for Nuclear Security , whose laboratories and factories design and produce nuclear warheads.

“Problems with the control and accountability of desktop and laptop computers have plagued the department for a number of years,” the report said.

Earlier this year , The US Deparment of justice released a report that highlighted the FBI significant losses of weapons and laptops : 160 laptop computers and 160 weapons were missing.

The problems in that situation and in present cases are always incomplete inventories, delays in reporting missing items and lack of care by employees.

Microsoft on the PS3 launch

Stephen McGill, Microsoft's head of gaming and Entertainment and Devises Division UK, speaks exclusively to CVG about the arrival of PS3.

With Xbox 360 and Wii already selling well across Europe, the obvious question is; has the PS3 launch come too late?

McGill: I think consumers are certainly going to see it as quite late and they've got lots of great choice already out here. I think the good thing is that they're actually here now; we've been waiting for them for quite a while and I think it gives consumers the chance to make an informed decision, because there's been a lot of hype and a lot of great demos. Now they can actually see the real thing and decide whether the £425 is worth it or not.

I'm feeling pretty good about where we are in the business; we've got a great install base, we've got fantastic membership on Xbox Live, we've got a portfolio that's unrivalled and I don't see that changing. It's a great position we're in and we're looking forward to continuing that position.

Do you think the average gamer will decide PS3 is worth the price tag?

McGill: I think there's certainly going to be a few people going out this weekend and buying it as a willingness to fork out that kind of money. If you look at what the difference is between the Xbox 360 and PS3 we're both big power-horses in terms of we've both got a lot of power in the box and we can both do amazing things.

Through us we're putting gaming in the centre and so games are part of everything we do, but we do do a lot of different things; you can play music, you can watch movies and look at your photos and stuff, which actually seems to be something that Sony is really focusing on - they don't seem to be focusing too much on the games.

So if you look at the early reports of people queuing outside of Virgin Megastore - there's another report in the paper today - they're already saying they've got 27 games that are already out but where are the killer games that will drive console sales?

With Blu-ray playback and a hefty hard drive, do you think PS3 purchasers get what they pay for?

Microsoft Forms Business Process Alliance, Develops BPM Roadmap

Microsoft is honing in on business process management with the formation of the Microsoft Business Process Alliance and the release of a BPM roadmap that will include a key standard—Business Process Execution Language—in the Windows Workflow Foundation.
The company announced Feb. 26 at the Gartner BPM Summit in San Diego that it has formed the Microsoft Business Process Alliance, a group of about 10 companies dedicated to building out BPM functionality on Microsoft's BPM platform.
The companies include IDS Scheer (a key process modeling partner with SAP and Oracle), Fair Isaac, Global 360, Metastorm, Ascentn, SourceCode Technology Holding, AmberPoint, InRule, PNMsoft and RuleBurst.
The goal of the alliance is to break down barriers to BPM deployment—particularly for small and midsize businesses—by providing a less expensive BPM technology deployment option for companies, Microsoft officials said.
"The business process management space has become a classic case of the haves and have-nots between very large enterprises and the rest of the industry," said Steven Martin, director of product management in the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft, in a statement.
"The formation of the Business Process Alliance serves as a great opportunity for a wider range of customers to adopt game-changing business process management technologies."
The way Microsoft plans to lower the cost of BPM is by integrating those technologies companies need to automate processes on its BPM platform.
Click here to read more about IBM working to align and integrate CBE concepts into its business process management capabilities.
That platform is composed primarily of BizTalk Server, which has capabilities for system-centric processes and rules, and Office SharePoint Server 2007 that has human-to-human and human-to-system capabilities through document collaboration, workflow design (in the SharePoint Designer) and through its integration with the 2007 Office System that includes Word and Excel. more information

Fujitsu LifeBook P7230

With the exception of Sony, no company has mastered the art of ultraportable laptop design like Fujitsu. The compact LifeBook P7230 is one of the most lightweight systems on the market, and it's one of the sexiest, with your choice of two colors: black or white (an extra $50). The fact that this system has an integrated optical drive makes it all the more impressive. The LifeBook P7230 comes somewhat more modestly configured than several competitive models, but at $1,899, it's worth a look if every ounce counts.

Measuring 10.7 x 7.9 x 1.1 inches, the attractive and solidly built LifeBook P7230 (see photo gallery) is slight enough to tuck into the smallest carry-on, and at three pounds, it's light enough to carry all day. With such diminutive dimensions, however, come sacrifices: The keyboard is cramped and may fatigue your fingers during extended typing stints, particularly if you have big hands. Likewise, the touchpad is tiny, and the petite mouse buttons offer insufficient tactile feedback; you'll definitely want to use an external mouse hooked up to one of the LifeBook P7230's three USB ports. more information
