Amazon Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire continues to push strong sales of Amazon's tablet and e-reader devices.

It should come as no surprise that the Kindle is selling well these days, but just how well it’s selling might raise a few eyebrows.

Amazon reports that over one million Kindle units have been sold each week for the last three weeks — basically, ever since the Kindle Fire hit the market.

The notoriously tight-lipped retailer revealed the Kindle sales numbers this week, though it’s worth noting that Amazon doesn’t make a distinction between the Kindle Fire and the older Kindle e-readers. Nevertheless, the retailer reported that sales of all Kindle products have been in the millions now across the digital and brick-and-mortar markets.

The report of Kindle sales comes on the heels of some criticism for the Kindle Fire, including many complaints that Amazon has promised to fix with an upcoming update. Still, with the Kindle Fire appearing on just about every holiday gift guide in existence this year, it’s likely that Amazon still has a few more weeks left to ride the tablet computer’s wave of popularity.

VisionRacer VR3 eDrive

Take your racing to the next level with the VisionRacer VR3 eDrive simulator, which works with Xbox and Playstation.

There are plenty of peripherals specifically made for racing games like Forza 4 and DiRT. Most of them tend towards the cheaper side of cheap plastic steering wheels. For those of you who take your racing seriously have we got the product for you. 

The VisionRacer line of racing setups from SimRoom is pretty intense. They come with a full steering wheel, racing seat, shifter and pedals. The model we’ve featured here, the VR3 eDrive, comes with a 32-inch Samsung LED HDTV and either a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360. The PS3 model comes with GT5 and the 360 comes with Forza 4. This particular model is about $3,000.

You can make the VR3 all chrome and there are various adds on that increase the price a bit. Or you can go all out and get their $8,000 model which comes with a D-Box Motion Model. The D-Box is kind of a high-end vibration model that simulates the feel of your driving your car. 

If you feel that you’re racing simulations aren’t real enough, grab one of these set ups from SimRoom and take it to the next level.

Samsung Galaxy SII vs iPhone 4s

Samsung's recent advertising campaign for the Galaxy S II are taking their toll on consumer perception of the Apple iPhone 4S, a recent market survey shows.

Samsung’s Galaxy S II ads, which take direct aim at Apple’s iPhone 4S and the people who adore it, are doing their job, reports Philip Elmer-Dewitt in Fortune. According to a study by market research firm YouGov, consumer perception of the iPhone 4S has fallen as a result of the Samsung ads. Conversely, positive buzz surrounding Samsung has risen. The two brands are now about equal, though Samsung may have a slight edge.

“Samsung has just edged past the iPhone in consumer perception in the US (adults 18+), likely powered by their new set of ads bashing the Apple fanboys who camp out for hours to buy the new iPhone,” writes YouGov’s Ted Marzilli in a press release.

Quantum Dot TV

The British company Nanoco has announced it is working with several unnamed electronics companies, with the intention of bringing the first quantum dot televisions to market by the end of 2012.

Quantum-dot technology has been on the verge of breaking into the mainstream for a while, with various companies exploring its use in all kinds of displays, and its advantages over LCD and OLED in televisions.  These advantages include lower power consumption, a longer lifetime and more physical flexibility.

It’s therefore only a matter of time before QD displays make it into stores, and British firm Nanoco has announced it’s working with several “major Asian electronics companies” in order to make them a reality by the end of next year. CEO Michael Edelman hasn’t stated which companies specifically, but The Telegraph suggests Sony, Samsung, LG and Sharp are all working on QD-TV.

A QD television would be thinner and lighter than current LCD and OLED screens, while the image would improve with richer colors and more realistic blacks, all while using a fifth of the power an LCD screen.  Additionally, quantum dots are so tiny (100,000 times thinner than a human hair) they can be printed onto sheets of plastic, creating a screen flexible enough to be rolled up.

The iPad 3 is likely to be thicker than its predecessor, according to a report, but will support the Apple Smart Cover.

Macotakara, a Japanese technology blog with a dubious track record on Apple rumors, said that an Asian supplier which is providing parts for the next-generation iPad that the screen size will be the same as the iPad 2 but will be thicker for an "unknown reason."

While the report might seem a little doubtful in origin, it isn't the first time we've heard about the next-generation iPad being thicker than its predecessor. Just last month, iLounge reported that the iPad 3 would be around 0.7mm thicker than the iPad 2.Apple iPad 3

This additional thickness is apparently required to accommodate dual-light bars needed for a higher resolution display. The higher resolution display, which is likely to be four times the current 2048 by 1536 according to reports, will need more than just a single LED light bar to maintain its brightness.

However, more recent reports cast doubt on the dual-light bar theory, with Apple planning to use Sharp's IGZO (indium-gallium-zinc) LCD panels for the iPad 3 instead.

IGZO technology could be a good solution to Apple's requirement for high-resolution, low-power displays as it doesn't require the IPS (in-plane switching) panel technology to provide wide viewing angles, nor will it necessitate dual-bar LED backlighting

Sky 2012 F1 Team

In an eagerly-awaited announcement, the station has confirmed that the hugely popular David Croft will join forces with Martin Brundle in the commentary box for each of the 2012's races, with Brundle on air during every day of each grand prix, dividing his time between paddock, pitlane and commentary box. The flexibility means that former F1 driver Anthony Davidson will be reunited with Croft for commentary duties for each of the weekend's practice sessions.

A developer says he has discovered a secret piece of software, which comes installed on all Android, BlackBerry and Nokia handsets, that records all activity performed on the device -- and he has the video to back it up.

Mobile users, beware: you’re being watched — constantly. An Android developer claims to have discovered an app that comes pre-installed on millions of Android, BlackBerry and Nokia handsets, that records all activity on the device. That includes calls, location, and every key pressed on the device.

The app, created by California-based software company Carrier IQ, is shown in a video posted to YouTube (see below) by developer Trevor Eckhard logging every key he pressed, in real time. The software even recorded Eckhard’s geographic location, when connected to Google via Wi-Fi — not 3G — even though he denied permission for Google to track his whereabouts. Calls aren’t safe, either.

“Every button you press in the dialer before you call,” Eckhard says on the video, “it already gets sent off to the IQ application.”
