Meet The Magic Glove: A 2-in-1 Duster + Cleaner

There is a new concept device out on the block called the Magic Glove, that vacuums and dusts all at once. The idea is to hook up the mechanism to your wrists and begin swiping away at whatever needs cleaning.

The 3G tablet has a built-in GPS feature and offers mobile broadband connectivity, giving you full access to the apps you want and need when you’re computing on the run. Panasonic has kept hush on pricing thus far, but you can expect the tablet to be about $100 over the average price of tablets, being that it is rugged.

Leaked: Galaxy Tab 7 Coming This Fall

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 is expected this Fall and will run Android Gingerbread. It will make calls, but unless you are planning on using a Bluetooth headset, we doubt you’ll be slapping this tablet by your ear, at least for not any important phone calls.

The Galaxy Tab 7 will carry a 1.2GHz Exynos processor, 16GB of storage space, microSD storage, and voice/video calling for the occasional business call. Although we don’t have any word on cameras yet, you can expect at least a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3MP front-facing camera for conferencing.

Why The OK Button Is On The Right

According to The Atlantic, John Pavlus explains why the OK button is always on the right, and why the CANCEL button is always on the left. He argues that this design was built with human perception in mind. In essence, he believes that humans want to go over the wrong answer before selecting the correct answer. By going through these choices in this order (since we read from left to right), it is pretty much guaranteed that the user has read all the options before proceeding.

If the buttons were reversed, our eyes would quickly dart to the OK button and we would be able to proceed without reviewing the CANCEL button, which would be a bias to click OK. Although this makes sense from a logical standpoint, I believe this may be one of a number of factors that determined OK should be on the right side.
