The need and craving to use a PC out of offices and homes has grown exponentially in the past few years. Although smartphones have somewhat fulfilled the need but they are not yet equivalent to a computer.

Asus PadFone: Will It Be The New Sheriff In Town?

Is it a tablet? Is it a Phone? Well, Asus made the fog go away to let us see clearly what it was by announcing its PadFone earlier this year.

The remarkable design of the TO-BE released device got everybody confused initially, but when the company explained the fact that it was a smart phone that is hooked up with a tablet in which the phone can dock into.

FlashSoft Raises $3 Million In Funding

Flashsoft, a company founded in November 2009, provides software that allows data center administrators to direct data from a server, to a flash-based solid state drive. The transition to solid state drives allow the data to move closer to the processor, and with the Flashsoft software, applications are able to run faster.

ThinkPad + IdeaPad Tablets, On The Way

Lenovo’s president, Rory Read has officially announced in an interview that IdeaPad and ThinkPad tablets will hit markets later this year. Consumers can expect both tablets to rock 10″ screens, come with Android Honeycomb, and cost between $450 and….gulp….$900.

The IdeaPad K1 will ship out next month, with the professional-oriented ThinkPad tablet coming this August. I suppose IBM wanted to throw down two Windows 7 tablets before it was “too late” with Windows 8 expected to arrive next year.

Korean manufacturer, LG, has just announced its latest super slim monitor, called the Super LED. The new monitor features a number of benefits, including; being SUPER slim, having SUPER picture quality, SUPER angle viewing distances, and SUPER energy saving.

Sony Reveals Smart AR Technology

Sony has just revealed its new SmartAR technology that allows a device to recognize an object, even within a 2D object such as a poster, and animate it. Sony’s prototype will animate the creature and allow the user to manipulate the item by touching the screen directly. While this technology is in the infant stage, this will bring collaboration to whole new levels. Imagine designing a prototype on paper and showing a 3D version of it to colleagues.

Finally, A Hybrid Car That Goes 200MPH

Jaguar is planning to launch its C-X75 concept vehicle as a hybrid supercar. The C-X75 takes the cake for speed, known to achieve speeds greater than 200MPH and is expected to deliver ultra-low CO2 emissions of less than 99g/km. Finally a concept vehicle with plans through production, something that rarely happens with anything in concept form. I’ve always considered concept technology and vehicles (which I also consider tech) to be creative designs meant to innovate and inspire future creators.

Introducing The Lenovo ThinkPad X1- LEAKED!

When we think of true laptop beauty, many of us think of the MacBook Air. Afterall, it is the world’s thinnest laptop computer. For many, the razor thin appeal just adds to the edginess and spunk the MacBook Air offers consumers. While we have seen a few companies try to head to head with Apple, many have missed the mark. The Dell Adamo is an excellent example of Dell’s solution to the MacBook Air. It’s sleek design and square figure was meant to dazzle many, but didn’t really get the publicity it deserved.

Lenovo is coming up with its own solution to the MacBook Air, the ThinkPad X1 (that just leaked). This beautiful device will come with a whopping 160GB solid-state technology to keep your data secure even when you’re on the move. The X1 is…

We agree that the model numbers are a bit bulky too.
