Samsung and MSI - iPod nano clones

As you can expect, portable MP3 players were popular the show. The most common theme of all the MP3 players we saw? A number of them looked very similar in design to Apple's iPod nano. We took pictures of two such examples, one from Samsung and one from MSI:

Although the looks were there, the user interface wasn't. The Creative Labs players were pretty much the closest to a true iPod competitor that we've seen, the rest just have the right looks on the outside but that's usually where the similarity ends.

    From page 8:


    Like LCD and DLP technologies, SED displays are fixed pixel displays and there are three electron emitters per pixel. The downside to a fixed pixel display of course is that you end up sacrificing quality if you display content isn't at the same resolution as the native resolution of your display.

    Actually, that only exist if at least 1 dimension of display content dimensions isn't integer divisor of display's native resolution. Secondly, DLP can overcome this by shining at only the biggest subset of mirror in the DMDs that do not cause distortions, then use adjustable sets of lenses to perform zooming, with each set zooming at only 1 axis.

    Please do a review of this thing when it becomes available. I'd love to see how its output compares to Blu-ray and HD-DVD. I'm sure it's not as good... but just how much worse is what I'd like to know. Reply

    Samsung has pretty good scaling technology, but it seems to me this is something you only need in your display. (And Samsung TVs do pretty good upconversion already.) So, kind of silly. Reply

    Raptor X.

    I feel so guilty. I'm drooling over a hard drive that costs more then a 7800GT.

    I've wanted a windowed Hard drive for ages though... but don't have the dremmel skills nessesary to add a window to an existing drive.

    Nobody has the dremel skills. Drives are assembled in clean rooms. Beaking the seal will be the end of a drive. Reply

    I've noticed lately that article text seems to disappear a few seconds after page load, frequently when one of the sidebar ads appears. Can't be retrieved except by highlighting it, moving the page back and forth (so it redraws), etc. Happened on a number of articles over the past week or so...
