South Korea To Move All Students To Tablets And E-books

South Korea, the world’s most wired nation, has announced that it expects to replace all paper textbooks with electronic tablets at its state-run schools by 2015.

Ever since the Kindle e-reader hopped onto the scene in 2007, the dream of completely digitalizing all educational material and cramming it into a slim and light device slowly became feasible, albeit at turtle speeds.

Samsung Galaxy S II Receives 1080p 24Mbit/s Hack

Even though the Samsung Galaxy S II sold perfectly well on its own, a new hack allows the device to record 1080p video at 24Mbit/s and offer a 30fps (frames per second) video capture. The hack also allows for 44.1KHz 192-bit audio! Just to compare with factory settings, the Galaxy S II normall records in 16Mbit/s 1980p HD with AAC mono audio.

The hack, introduced by HyperX, essentially overclocks the phone to allow it to capture very high quality video and sound. Although the hack is quite impressive, HyperX is still working on some tweaks to make sure the software is fully debugged for tech enthusiasts to enjoy.
