The Pebble Smart Watch, The Incredible Über Smartphone Assistant For Your Wrist…

Pebble Technology (Allerta) have created the perfect hi-tech Über smart wrist watch. Currently seeking pledgers on the fund raising website Kickstarter Pebble is attracting huge amounts of attention, attracting over 10,000 pledgers and over $1.4 million in 4 days, Pebble looks to be an early hit. With 36days to go till funding is closed and production begins Pebble is anxiously being anticipated by many.

The designers of the amazing InPulse smart watch for Blackberry have finally brought their magic to the iPhone and Android world. In one foul swoop they have completely re-invented the wrist watch for the 21st century. While the InPulse was a tad bulky, and frankly attaching their wagon to Blackberry seems a little insane, InPulse was still a wrist bound technological tour de force.

Learning as they go Allerta have created the most incredible Smart-phone assistant ever. Think of Pebble as a second display for your smartphone, one that is immensely more accessible, and generally always visible. While vibration notifications offer convenient silent operation, without the strange looks.

Über Memory: Corsair Dominator® GTX 8GB dual-channel DDR3 2400MHz…

Corsair, the makers of high quality memory products have announced and released the fastest DDR3 memory for desktop computers, the Über Dominator GTX 8GB dual-channel DDR3. This new member of the Dominator® GT family of memory is built using hand-picked chips. A 4 stage testing process is used to hand-pick the best 5% of parts and combine them into this exclusive hardware. Used by overclockers to set records this is not everyday memory but true Über RAM. Better buckle up this is quick stuff.

Memory in a computer system is responsible for shuffling data and instructions from the memory to the CPU where the processing is done. With 19.2GB per channel bandwidth this RAM ensures your CPU will be constantly fed with data and instructions. To achieve 19.2Gb bandwidth the GTX runs at 2400MHz – the operating frequency or number of times it can read/write a second-, this memory is 50% quicker than the current standard for desktop memory DDR3-1600 which delivers sustained bandwidth of 12.8GB. While some desktop motherboards are capable of using DDR3-2000 –16GB bandwidth– the new Dominator memory is the next level again with 19.2 GB of bandwidth per channel, a total bandwidth of 38.4GB.

HOT NEW AMD 6990, Über Video Card…

AMD does foot long sub.

Do you always have to have the fastest, always want the best. Do you have a spare $700 floating around to spend on a video card? Well AMD has just released the AMD 6990 and it ticks ALL the boxes, it is the new king of video cards.

With 4 Gig of Ram shared between 2 video chips – graphics processing units – this is a serious beast of a video card. Hell I know of many desktop machines that don’t have that much memory in total. There are 5 video ports to drive 5 displays. More importantly this card will drive your ultra hi-def monitor – 2560 x 1600 resolution, actually this card could drive two of these ultra hi-res monitors.

If you have a desktop case or even a normalish sized case you can forget about this card. At just over 30cm long – 12inches – this card needs lots of space in your case. Even with an Antec 183 – an extremely large case – a drive cage needs to be removed to accommodate the video card. Power also needs to be considered before buying a card like this. In overclock mode this card will use 450W, so an 800W power supply is going to be a necessity.
