2. Nokia Ice
"At the moment, the phone is an oval shape, but we can’t see any reason why it shouldn’t be sculpted in the future. Design and colour are always at the heart of what Nokia does. Nothing has been finalised, but we are thinking along the lines of a swan."
The Unofficial Apple Weblog got first dibs on this exclusive iPhone 5 prototype demonstration. They got us at "the iPhone 5 carries a stylus". What this April Fools' skit mocks - the leak and rumor-obsessed tech blogosphere.
Headlined by the logo "Because we can", the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Quad has the S Feet interface, so you can play multiplayer Tap Tap revenge with your toes. And, yes, Apple will sue, and also Shaq complained his hands are too tiny for the Note 2 Quad. Elephants love it, though.
5. Gmail Tap
Instead, it replaces them with the good ol' Morse Code that only requires a dot and a dash for all your communication needs.
Google hired the engineer Reed Morse, a relative of the one and only Samuel Morse, so we are sure the project is in good hands and can't wait for our two-symbol virtual keyboards. Welcome to the future of productivity.
Try the new SkyCMD - a command line prompt for direct access to all your SkyDrive files on the go. You can login via the dedicated "interface, which is just, well, a command line, like in the good ol' DOS days, and Microsoft has taken the trouble to make something that actually works and is tons of fun to play with for those of us old geezers who remember the times before the mouse and the touch screen.
Toshiba has you covered by introducing tablets with various shapes more suitable for the tasks at hand, including the Oblong, the Rhombus and Amore, for a Valentine's Day gift to romantic geeks. We love the sideways Android interface on Amore.
Built in the best tradition of garden gnomes, these have the antenna in places like the gnome's fishing rod, and carry names like Angelina Gnomie, Signome Cowell, Kylie Mignome and Gnomey Blair.
"The BASE Pack is born from a quest Moog engineers embarked on with help from researchers at The University of North Carolina at Asheville to discover the most primordial sounds known to man. The result is the Biomimetically Augmented Synthesis Expansion Pack (BASE Pack) for the Animoog synthesizer. The BASE Pack is a collection of timbres and presets that radically extends the sonic capabilities of Animoog from the purely electronic realm of its Moog ancestry into a richly organic world of biological sound.
In addition to the over 40 new Timbre files, Moog recruited top sound designers to craft 25 powerful new presets which demonstrate the range of BASE sounds that Animoog can now emit. Some of the Presets included are Extravasation, Eructations, Bad Beans, Bathtub Bubbles, and Oops Sorry Excuse Me. Some of the Timbres included are Sploot2, WetGas1, Dribbly, WetSquish2 and Excuse Me.
Animoog is available for the iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch in the iTunes Store. Animoog version 1.0.2 includes the new "Animoog Store" where users can purchase new Timbres and presets from within the app itself. The BASE Pack is only the first in a series of wide-ranging, boundary-pushing sonic updates to come."
