Google Introduces Image-Search, Voice Recognition, + Instant Pages

Google is introducing new features, engineered within mobile devices, such as voice and image search to its traditional Google search box. The company claimed that they will roll out a speech-recognition tool displayed as a microphone button on the right side of Google’s search box for a select number of visitors on Tuesday.

For now, it will only be available on Google’s Chrome Web Browser, a browser that claims 12.5% of the web browsing market share. The new speech recognition tool was programmed to take input both from standard English as well as varying accents to help create a platform for everyone to use.

IBM Makes First Graphene Circuit W/ Exponential Power

IBM has just introduced the world’s first integrated circuit, that is made of carbon allotrope graphene. CAG is a semiconductor that could push clock speeds much further than the traditional silicon-based wafers. Graphene has a microscopic crystal structure that allows processors to use smaller processes than silicon technology, allowing extremely large advances in processor clock speeds.

A jump like this would be like going from a megabyte to a gigabyte. IBM has currently demonstrated graphene-based transistors running at 100GHz, two and a half times faster than the current 40GHz (state-of-the-art transistors).

NZXT Brings Avatar S Gaming Mouse

With advancements in computer hardware, including graphics cards, we are seeing more intensive games being released for the PC platform. Computer manufacturer NZXT is introducing a new Avatar S gaming mouse for gaming enthusiasts worldwide.

The cutting-edge mouse comes in two colors, black or white, giving gamers the edge they need to stay alive (in the game, of course!). The Avatar S features a 3-setting DPI (dots per inch) mode giving users the choice between 1600, 800, or 400.

4.8GHz Notebook W/ 2GB Video Card

Computer manufacturer Maingear has just launched its newest laptop, the eX-L 17 3D notebook. The machine has an overlcocked 4.8GHz CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 485M. 3D enthusiasts will make use of the 3D Vision support and rip through applications with the blazing fast second generation Intel processor, 2.5GHz in its resting state, and 4.8GHz when it’s overclocked to the max.

Consumers will enjoy the built-in 3D emitter, two HDD bays for expansion later down the road, and an integrated ‘Bigfoot Networks Killer Wireless-N.’

Samsung Introduces ‘90% More Efficient’ LCD Panel

Although displays typically compete in areas of screen resolution, contrast ratio, and through a variety of ports, Samsung is charging the tech industry by storm. The company will soon be producing a mass marketed transparent LCD panel. Production will start in the month of April with plans to ship out later this year. The 22″ transparent display will be made available in black-and-white as well as color.

They’ll both host a contrast ratio of 500:1 and a WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) screen resolution. Today’s LCD panels use back light unit technology, called BLU and have a 5% transparency rate. Samsung’s transparency rate will be 4x better for its black-and-white model and 3x more transparent for…

The New Sony Vaio With Google Chrome OS

Sony is working on a hybrid (two component) laptop that will feature Intel Thunderbolt technology (previously named “Light Peak”). Thunderbolt is the same interface that MacBook Pros currently use.

The device comes equipped with an Intel Wireless Display, Solid State Drive, Intel i7 processor, HDMI ouput with 3D support, and a battery life of up to 16.5 hours. Sony claims the laptop will weigh around…
