Microsoft Touch Mouse
Microsoft Touch Mouse is the new multitouch mouse for Windows 7 that will let you click, flick, scroll and swipe so it's easy and fun to interact with your PC.
Designed to enhance your Windows 7 usage, the Touch Mouse combines the virtues of a mouse with the rich natural language of gesture to offer a more intuitive way to navigate your PC. Touch Mouse also features BlueTrack Technology so you can track virtually anywhere, anytime.1 Behind the Scenes
Did You Know?
The Touch Mouse evolved from the Mouse 2.0 project, a Microsoft Corp. study that combined the standard capabilities of a mouse with multitouch sensing and resulted in five prototypes. Although all the Mouse 2.0 prototypes explored different touch- sensing strategies and form factors, the "Cap Mouse" was ultimately selected to become the Touch Mouse.
The top of the Touch Mouse is composed of a matrix of capacitive touch-sensing electrodes to track the position of the user's fingertips along its surface.
Hrvoje Benko, one of the researchers behind the Touch Mouse, worked to create the technology and gestures for this new mouse. He is available for interviews if you are interested in learning more about the development of Touch Mouse.

NVIDIA Project Denver - injecting a CPU core into GPU
Pretty big news from NVIDAI today, my best bet is that NVIDIA is tired and sick of Intel patent issues preventing them from developing x86 capable hardware. Now that Intel and AMD integrate graphics into their processors NVIDIA will do it the other way around and integrate a processor into its GPUs.
It has long been rumored that NVIDIA flirting with the the processor market with some sort of x86 compatibility, many wondered how the firm would do this but with NVIDIA's announcement of Project Denver and Microsoft's confirmation that the next version of Windows will be compatible with ARM the plan is becoming a bit clearer.
Project Denver is the codename of NVIDIA's CPU+GPU combo, which is basically a custom ARM Cortex-A15 processor that will be fully integrated on the same chip as NVIDIA's future GeForce and Tesla GPUs.
NVIDIA announced today that it plans to build high-performance ARM
Power Saving TVs a trend on CES
Energy friendly products is something we all want, without the compromise of quality of course. Samsung is showing off a new 1080p 240Hz LCD TV at CES 2011 with edge lighting only on two sides instead of the traditional four. The company claims the panel uses 52 percent less energy than existing models.
As Engadget reports: Ok, this display at the CES Unveiled event has been wrapped in some funky curved frame yet, but Samsung is showing it off because by producing a 1080p 240Hz LCD with edge lighting only on two sides instead of the traditional 4, it uses 52 percent less energy than existing models. While we still prefer plasma or LED backlighting for picture quality, viewed in the light of this showcase it didn't seem to particularly suffer compared to its edge LED lit brethren.
