A company called Mountain View has put together the above Search Globe, which presents a single day’s worth of Google queries in a beautiful, skyscraper-infused visualization. An interactive 3D version will let you twist and turn the model world for a closer exploration of global Google use on this fine link. And if you get tired of that, there’s an alternative map showing world populations over 1990s right here. And if you click MORE there will be a similar feat available that covers Android activation.

The ipad 2 is here, and we all know what that means. Teradown! Here we get an inside look on the brand new apple tablet. But as the title says, it’s close to impossible to open it without breaking the screen, why dosen’t apple want us to open their products? First the flower screws on the iphone 4 and now the adhesive thing on the ipad2, oh well. Here is a video and some shots.
This is the N-Control Avenger, what does it do? It makes your 360 controller look like something from outer space, also it’s supposed to make it easier to play.
You’ll also apparently gain a split-second advantage over opponents on the draw since the contraption constantly applies tension to each of the controller’s triggers, making them easier to press.

It also gives you the ability to talk with the other people in your party.
We try and test out a variety of hardware, catering to both the budget-conscious and those that want quality at all cost. Today we’ll be taking a look at the Sharkoon X-tatic SX, which falls into the former category. It’s not the first Sharkoon X-tatic that we’ve seen. The last one was an excellent piece of hardware, with a $160 price tag. The SX will set you back less than half of that, but does it deliver less than half of the quality? (more…)
These Fractal design language” renders presumably relate to the upcoming Precision T7600, T5600, and T3600 lines (refreshes for the T7500, T5500, and T3600, respectively). One of Dell’s favorite design houses is responsible for the images, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the final products will look like this. We also don’t know anything about internals, but it seems like a brand new look would fit with those brand new Sandy Bridge chips Intel is about to push out. They look great don’t they? (more…)
