One of the reasons why OLED technology is cool is the fact that you can create a semi-transparent OLED screen. We’re not quite sure how useful this technology really is, except for looking through your laptop when everyone thinks you’re looking at it, but imagining a future with a bunch of semi-transparent gadgetry around us somehow fills us with glee.
Samsung has decided to take a step into the future, creating a 14-inch notebook prototype with a semi-transparent screen. When the device is off, the panel is up to 40 percent transparent; the screen casing is made out of transparent plastic, which makes the experience even more seamless.

The Proud Best Indian Citizen, Addressing In His Style ….

We are really in a need to thank him for his service to our nation. He is a encyclopedia to the students. He is the all time favorite person for 99 percent of the Indian students. He feels young and so his voice still encourages the powerful Indian population… We salute Dr.Kalam… Jai Hind !!!

A firm owned by billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen sued Apple, Facebook, Google, YouTube, and seven other companies, charging them with infringing patents filed more than a decade ago.
Google and Facebook blasted the lawsuit as “unfortunate” and “without merit.”
The complaint, filed Friday morning in a Seattle federal court, named AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples, Yahoo and Google’s YouTube.
AOL, Apple, Google and Yahoo were each charged with four claims of patent infringement, while Facebook was hit with one. The other eight companies were charged with two claims each.
The suit does not name Microsoft, which Allen co-founded with Bill Gates in 1975 but left in 1983 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. Microsoft did not reply to a request asking whether it had licensed some or all of the applicable patents from Allen’s firm.
Allen’s lawsuit claimed that the 11 companies violated patents developed by Internal Research, a Silicon Valley research lab he funded in 1992, but which shut its doors in 2000. David Liddle, who worked at the Xerox’s influential Palo Alto Research Center ( Xerox PARC) in the 1970s, was Interval’s CEO.
Those patents were later transferred to Interval Licensing, a company owned by Allen.
The two patents that make up the bulk of the claims are 6,263,507, “Browserfor Use in Navigating a Body of Information, With Particular Application to Browsing Information Represented By Audiovisual Data,” and 6,757,682, “Alerting Users to Items of Current Interest.” Allen’s lawsuit alleges that all but Facebook violated the ‘507 patent, and all 11 companies infringed the ‘682 patent.
Interval filed applications for the four patents between March 1996 and September 2000, and was awarded the patents between March 2000 and September 2004.
The ‘507 patent refers to a possible application in a “news browser” that could be used to “review news stories acquired during one day from several television news programs, as well as from text news sources.” The ‘682 patent, meanwhile, describes technology for alerting users of Web content related to what they’re currently viewing, or of others’ activities that might interest them.
The ‘682 patent is the only one that Allen’s company claimed was violated by Facebook, the popular social networking site.
The remaining two patents spell out an “attention manager” that would flash advertisements, stock quotes and other information in front of a user.
The 15-page complaint singled out Google for special treatment, saying that Interval Research provided both funding and assistance to the then-fledgling search firm in 1998, the year founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin incorporated the company.
Included with the complaint was a 1998 screenshot of Google’s “About” page that showed Interval Research credited as one of four sources of research funding, and one of two outside collaborators.
In a statement Friday, Google called Allen’s lawsuit “unfortunate.”
“This lawsuit against some of America’s most innovative companies reflects an unfortunate trend of people trying to compete in the courtroom instead of the marketplace,” said Google. “Innovation — not litigation — is the way to bring to market the kinds of products and services that benefit millions of people around the world.”
Facebook’s take was more blunt. “We believe this suit is completely without merit and we will fight it vigorously,” said company spokesman Andrew Noyes in an e-mail.
Other Firms contacted by Computerworld, including Apple and Yahoo, did not immediately reply to requests for comment on the lawsuit.
Allen’s suit seeks unspecified damages, as well as injunctions that would block the accused companies from continuing to use the patented technologies.
Earlier this year Forbes put Allen, 57, in the No. 37 spot on its world’s richest list, and estimated his net worth at $13.5 billion.

Windows 7‘s awesome feature, AppLocker, can help prevent kids from installing bloatware and untrusted software on PCs and laptops. 


AppLocker lets users install only those programmes that they specify it to run. Here’s how:

1. Create a rule to allow everything from a publisher — for eg. Microsoft

2. This will let you run all signed Yahoo apps

3. Launch RUN and type GPEDIT.MSC and press ENTER key go to Computer Configuration

4. Go to Windows SettingsSecurity SettingsApplication Control Policies & AppLocker. You’ll have an idea of what all apps are running on your PC.

A Japanese research team said it had developed the world’s first 3D television system that allows users to touch, pinch or poke images floating in front of them. 

                          “It is the first time that you can feel images in the air,”

                                                                       said Norio Nakamura, Senior Scientist with the Research Team at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.


“You can have the sense of touch like poking a rubber ball or stretching a sticky rice cake when manipulating images,” he said. 


The technology changes the shape of three-dimensional images in response to “touches”, aided by cameras that monitor how the fingers move, Nakamura said. 

It is not known when the technology will be put to practical use but its creators see it being used to simulate surgical operations and in video game software allowing players to experience the sensation of holding weapons or sports equipment. 

It could even use scanned images to supplement existing realities, said Nakamura. “This technology could create a virtual museum where visitors, including vision-impaired people, can put their hands on valuable sculptures that are usually untouchable,” Nakamura said.
