Reality Car Windows Unveiled By Toyota!

Toyota is announcing new technology in their vehicles. The Japanese car manufacturing company unveiled a new window in a new manufactured vehicle where children can write on windows or make a sketch of outside objects.

The drawing will stick to the window till the outside object passes away or until the passenger itself removes it. That is something really cool for a long drive or even for small drives where any one can enjoy travel. For bored adults it’s really fascinating, and hopefully this new tech will be enough to keep consumers from worrying about a third recall.

Apple Feels Harassed By Samsung

Windows Focuses On Apple’s Audience Before It’s Own

Microsoft made Photosynth technology available to iPhone users on Monday and immediately received criticism for lacking a Windows 7 version. I find it very amusing that Microsoft wanted to target Apple’s audience much faster than their own. I smell greed. To those unfamiliar with the mobile application, Photosynth allows iPhone users to combine panoramic imagery to make 3D images. As you can imagine, many Windows fans were angered over the decision to make the app primarily for the iPhone.

Bing’s Mobile architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas blogged, “I’m sure over the coming days and weeks we’ll be answering, over and over, the “why didn’t this ship first on Microsoft’s own phone” question. Our approach to the design of the Photosynth app hopefully provides some evidence…

Taiwanese manufacturer, Asus, came out with their well known Eee PC about four years ago and have been a key player in the netbook market.
