The Raspberry Pi has brought about quite a bit of attention for miniature systems. While traditional computers cost several hundred pounds, the Raspberry Pi allows you to purchase a computer for internet browsing and, thanks to XBMC, even full HD video playback, for just £30. Intel is working on the NUC platform, which is quite a bit more expensive but also uses a faster processor. VIA has also jumped on the bandwagon and introduces the APC 8750 Android PC.
The APC uses a WonderMedia ARM11 processor which, with an 800 MHz clock frequency, is slightly faster than the Raspberry Pi. it has twice as much DDR3 memory, totaling 512 MB. VIA’s APC system has an I/O panel as found on a regular motherboard, which includes four USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks, VGA and HDMI video outputs, Ethernet connector and a micro-SD card slot, used for storage. VIA will use an older version of the Android operating system, version 2.3 “Gingerbread”, which likely runs very well on limited hardware. a drawback is that the system, sized 17 x 8.5 cm, is only capable of producing a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, while the Raspberry Pi also supports full HD playback. this makes VIA’s APC 8750 less suited for use as a media player.
VIA’s APC is aimed at the educational segment, providing cheap computers for students, as well as hobbyists of course. in the future, faster versions of the system will be announced, possibly including dual-core and quad-core chips and integrated WiFi and Bluetooth connections. VIA’s APC 8750 has a recommended price of $49 (£32) and is powered by an external 15W power adaptor.
USB STICKS AND SD CARDS
Desktop drives and hefty RAIDs might be handy for Macs which don’t go anywhere, but they’re not all that practical when it comes to Mac notebooks.
The easiest way to expand the storage on your portable Mac is with a USB stick. These days you’ll pick up a 32GB model for less than $50, which should be more than enough room if you’re looking to lug around large files and perhaps backup important documents.
You’ll also find tiny USB sticks which only extend a few millimetres from your computer, such as the Lexar Echo ZE, which are perfect for leaving permanently attached to your desktop or notebook. Alternatively you’ll find SDXC card slots in the new MacBook Pros and an SD card slot on the 13in MacBook Air.
The sweet spot for SD cards is around $30 for 16GB. You’ll pay more for cards with faster read/write speeds such as the SanDisk Ultra and Extreme cards.
Unfortunately, the tiny 11in MacBook Air lacks an SD card slot, even though it’s the model which could most do with a storage boost. Thankfully, you’ll find that many USB mobile broadband sticks and Wi-Fi hotspots feature a microSD card slot, letting them double as a storage device while you’re on the road. Once again the microSD sweet spot is around $30 for 16GB.
If you need more storage in your travel bag, consider a portable hard drive.
Keep in mind you’re paying extra for portability, compared to desktop drives, as the sweet spot for portable drives is around $100 for 500GB models. You’ll also find 750GB and 1TB models. Check for connectors such as USB and FireWire depending on your needs.
Portable drives are generally smaller and lighter than desktop drives because they contain 2.5in hard drives rather than 3.5in ones. another advantage is that they’re usually powered from your Mac rather than requiring a separate power supply like most desktop drives.
The trade-off is that portable drives contain moving parts, so they’re more fragile than USB sticks and SD cards. as such, portable drives obviously don’t respond as well to drops or extreme temperature fluctuations.
NAS AND STREAMING
When it comes to home storage, a handy alternative to external drives is a central Network Attached Storage drive. a NAS is basically an external drive with an Ethernet port instead of (or as well as) a USB port. This Ethernet port makes a NAS a sensible way to consolidate your storage space while making it accessible to all the devices connected to your home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. just like with an external drive, your files are still at your fingertips via the Finder on your Mac.
Toshiba has shown off two concept tablets at its Product Preview 2012. PC Advisor has trekked out to Watford to check out Toshiba’s new kit.
Among the hordes of laptops, hard drives and other kit are two concept tablet designs which got a look at. The two devices are an unnamed 7.7-inch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a dummy 13.3-inch monster.
Details are light on both devices at the moment but the smaller of the two is called the AT470 in the about tablet settings menu and running Android 4.0.3 ICS. we don’t know what hardware is inside but the screen uses AMOLED technology and as far as we can tell it’s the same as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.
Both devices come with features including WiFi, microSD and HDMI. Both tablets have front and rear facing cameras of undisclosed specification.
The larger of the two devices is a huge 13.3-inch tablet primarily for multimedia use but Toshiba also said it would be useful for businesses. this larger tablet is not functioning yet but has similar technology to the 7.7-inch model and a full SD card slot.
Whether or not Toshiba brings these devices to market is unclear at the moment. In our opinion the 7.7-inch is far more likely than the 13.3-inch.
The Blackberry Curve 9380 has, since its initial inception been a popular choice for the consumer, due to the fact that it offers the robustness and reliability that is expected of a Blackberry unit, whilst also offering an impressive level of technology coupled with smart phone technology, which is powered by an 806 MHz processor, coupled with the Blackberry operating system, version 7.0, all of which is contained within an impressive and appealing handset.
The units display screen is a 3.2 inch TFT capacitive display screen which offers touch screen functionality and operates at a pixel screen resolution which is quoted at 360 x 480 pixels. Navigation is provided by virtue of the optical track pad, in addition to the touch screen navigation feature. the handset comes with vibration and ring alert options with the ability to utilise polyphonic and MP3 ringtones whilst also providing a 3.5 mm Jack as well as a speakerphone, providing effective hands free functionality.
The unit offers the benefit of a useful Micro SD card slot which provides the opportunity to increase the available memory capacity of the unit up to 32 GB by making use of available cards. in addition Internet access is provided by virtue of its own 3G connection, whilst also offering the opportunity to access available hotspots by virtue of its Wi Fi option. in addition the unit comes with Bluetooth, Micro USB in addition to EDGE and GPRS connectivity.
The handset provides a 5.0 megapixel camera which comes with geo-tagging face detection as well as image stabilisation whilst also offering the opportunity to record VGA quality video. for multimedia player capability the unit provides an MP4/MP3 multimedia player that actively plays a wide range of file formats, whilst also providing such delights as a document viewer, voice memo facility, organiser and predictive text input functionality that enhances its offering.
The Blackberry Curve 9380, which in many ways is like the Blackberry 9860 Torch, delivers superior performance in every way, providing a useful and functionally impressive handset.
