Samsung copying Apple? A patent sue

Here's what Apple said :  
"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products."
That's something addressed to a party who makes hardware for them. Head to the source and see what people are thinking in the comments section

Project Cafe Controller. What will it look like

In our previous post we know that Nintendo has something up their sleeves. But somehow information about the controller has emerged. Now, the last time Nintendo released a console which is the Wii, the control itself is a revolutionary idea. Looking forward to what sort of controller Nintendo will bring is always interesting. The main thing here is that the controller will come with dual analog and a display screen. Again, this is not confirmed from the Big N. Many of you might not notice but before, on the Wii console gives more feedback to the user with sounds rather than just that classic vibration effect which of course applies individually to the player of the controller. Now it seems like Nintendo are taking a step ahead in interacting more with the users by having an on screen display on the controller. It might seem a simple thing but who knows what sort of experience might emerge with this concept. Head to the source for more news.

Nintendo expected to release the Wii 2, codename Project Cafe

Numerous sources are saying that Nintendo is ready to unleash a new Console. After the 3DS last year on E3, this new Wii 2 or something will be announced somewhere between now and June's E3. What to expect? A backwards compatibility with Wii, HD Graphics, more powerfull than the PS3 (maybe), and more 3rd Party titles. Nintendo has got to make new games. Not just porting it like what they did to the 3DS

Apple to release laptops with projectors?

Apple is taking an interesting approach toward improving the display performance of laser-based projection displays.  The combination of less-coherent light sources with laser-based light sources can improve speckle performance, while reducing overall power consumption.  Applications for this include traditional large-format projection, embedded projection, as well as for rear projection applications (such as televisions).  Apple does not discuss any preferred method for generating the individual pixels of the image.  Therefore, it appears that the patent application is broad enough to cover DLP, LCoS, or scanned mirror displays.

I don't see a need for such a technology right now. But considering it is Apple, fanboys will rush to the product and then "projecting" your laptop screen will be everywhere.

Dual Screen smartphone from Kyocera. DS like?

We've got some news on probably the first ever dual screen smartphone (unless you consider a Nokia Communicator as one). Head on to the source for the review. You can position the 2 screens portraitly to run tablet size applications/games and it runs on Android 2.2. Thinking of running a Nintendo DS emulator on this one?

iPad 3

Yeah, the picture above is not the iPad 3, rather the newest generation. Apple releases it's tabs in less than a year. Rumors said that they're gonna release the 3rd Generation of iPad soon. Well, they could've certainly did it even now. Probably slowing down a bit waiting for the new thinner Galaxy Tab 2 which is expected to be released this summer and Junie to catch up, then unleashing their retina display iPad 3 with a sophisticated iPhone 5. Well, what do you think? should you wait for the iPad 3?
Here's a picture of what it could be like (from hardware.info).
Well, what do you think? wanna wait for it? no official news yet though.
