Rumors of a BMW Electric Scooter

Rumors of a BMW Electric Scooter
Unnamed sources at BMW report that a new electric scooter could debut at an upcoming motorcycle show sometime in late 2010 and put in production in 2011, according to Spain’s Solo Scooter website. If the rumor mill is right, this new scooter would sport a lithium ion battery pack, have a range of about 155 miles or three hours of continuous use and a top speed of 75 miles per hour.

No word on the exact body style of the alleged scooter, though it could be modeled after their failed C1. The image here by the well-known Oberdan Bezzi may or may not be what the BMW scooter will look like. It’s a mystery we’ll have to wait to solve.

Washable Keyboard - join the scrub-a-dub club

Washable Keyboard - join the scrub-a-dub club
The Washable Keyboard has got to be awesomeness incarnate. No more digging dead McNuggets out from under the spacebar, or wiping old rancid Mountain Dew stains from the numpad, just drop the whole dang thing into the sink and give it a good scrubbing. Lovely. It’s also dishwasher safe, and anti-bacterial, which puts it one step ahead of Windows Vista, eh? £39.95.

 As well as being fully washable, this sparkling peripheral features Silver Seal™ Antimicrobial Protection to resist microbial growth and combat the spread of whiff-causing bacteria. We’re not entirely sure how this works but boffins tell us it’s got something to do with the silver ions embedded in the keyboard’s plastic. And that’s just as well because most keyboards contain nearly 400 times as many yucky microbes as the average toilet. Blurgh!

PNG compressor makes your images teeny

PNG compressor makes your images teeny
PNG Gauntlet is a .NET freeware program that optimises the size of PNG image files. Actually it’s a front end for the PNGOUT command line program, but the end result is the same – your images get made smaller. Oh and most importantly, it does this impressive feat without losing image quality. If you have a lot of images and file size and disk space is important to you, then you’ll probably want to take a look at this.

 PNGGauntlet is a .NET program that uses Ken Silverman’s PNGOUT to optimize PNG files. Many PNG files output by popular graphics software packages like Photoshop or even Fireworks are not as small as they could be - PNGGauntlet squeezes the last bit of size out of them. Furthermore, no information is lost during this process - the only thing that changes is the file size. Just select the files you want to optimize (or drag them onto the window), select where you want them to go, and click the button. PNGauntlet can also be used to convert JPG, GIF, TGA, PCX, and BMP files to PNG.

I-O Data Fills DVD Burner Hole In Netbooks

I-O Data Fills DVD Burner Hole In Netbooks
Netbooks are all the rage, and who can blame them. They are cheap, light, small, and ultra-portable. They do lack certain amenities such as DVD/CD drives and burners. It does make sense then that drive manufacturers would rush to try and fill the holes dug by netbooks, and that is exactly what I-O data is trying to do with their new Slim DVD-Burner. The DVRP-U8XLE2 is a slim, well-designed, and light DVD burner that can handle all of your media needs when you need your netbook to do a bit more.

The I-O Data DVRP-U8XLE2 connects to your device through a high-speed USB 2.0 connection and can burn DVDs with speeds up to 8X and CDRs up to 24X. The whole drive only weighs 28 ounces, and it is small enough to fit in what ever bag or sleeve you might be carrying your mini laptop in.

The drive runs $95, which might be too expensive considering you can find netbooks for a little more than twice that nowadays. None-the-less, if data burning is your need, then This I-O data drive might be your best bet.

Fujitsu ST6012 Tablet PC

Fujitsu ST6012 Tablet PC
I am a tablet user. In classrooms and in lectures I use tablets for both information delivery and capture. In fact, hone of my biggest problems being an Apple Fanboy is that (for now) there is no MacBook tablet. If there were, I would be in heaven. The Fujictsu ST6012 might just be the piece of equipment that wins me back to the PC world. It is a serious machine.

The Fujitsu ST6012 is a large and beautiful 12 inch tablet PC that has the muscles necessary to get some heavy lifting done. Under the hood, there is an Ultra-low Voltage SU9400 Intel Core 2 Duo processor, integrated webcam, active digitizer, and 1GB DDR3 RAM, 80GB hard drive. The specs may not stand out, but the device is staggeringly beautiful. It is both sturdy and sleek - exactly what you are looking for in a tablet.

Fujitsu is prepared to charge you $1999 for the base configuration, but if you move up to a SSD hard drive, and 4GB of RAM, be prepared to spend up to $2580. The ST6012 is out now.

Good looking camera carry-all from Acme Made

Good looking camera carry-all from Acme Made
So this retro, bowling bag-style camera bag from Acme Made caught my eye at once. It''s designed for digital SLR users (although old-school non-digital SLRs will fit in just fine), and features a quilted satin lining and pockets for memory cards or other accessories. It''s made from high-quality polyurethane and the red version shown above will be available in November, with navy and black bags out by Christmas. They''re expected to cost just $40 each.

TrekStor Matches Two of My Passions - Data and Beer

TrekStor Matches Two of My Passions - Data and Beer
I am all for multi-function devices. I have a printer / scanner / copier, I carry a Swiss-Army knife, and own an iPhone. If I am going to plop money down for a gadget or gizmo, it better do more than one thing. TrekStor has heard my demands and answered with a combination bottle-opener / USB flash drive.

The TrekStor USB stick CO comes in a rugged (I hope) brushed aluminum casing and features a sturdy Guiness beverage opener. It features high-speed USB 2.0 data transfer rates, it is bootable, and it is pre-formated and ready for use. It should be both Mac and Windows friendly, and it will support Linux (Kernel 2.6 or later).

The bottle opener is one-size-fits-all, but the USB flash capacity comes in 1GB, 2,GB, 4GB, and 8GB, and 16GB. They will range from $10 to $71 depending on size, and will be available in late October. Cheers!
