Radeon HD 3870 X2 Launch Delayed
 
For those you who were eagerly awaiting  the release of the Radeon 3870 X2 which was to have been tomorrow, you will be disappointed to hear that it has been pushed back to the original launch date of the 28th January.
 
....Radeon HD 3870 X2 launch is being pushed back to the original date again, which is, 28th January and no reason given by AMD for the change. This change took the AIB partners by surprise too as they have gotten themselves ready for the launch tomorrow. The selling prices set by retailers so far we have seen are around US$510 to US$550 range but it is slightly on the high side. The price point that AMD set for is between US$449 to $499 SRP.
 
Inflated prices and now another week to wait until the Radeon HD 3870 X2's release...How does this sit with you?

I just saw this and thought it was interesting :)

Engineers at the University of Washington have for the first time used manufacturing techniques at microscopic scales to combine a flexible, biologically safe contact lens with an imprinted electronic circuit and lights.

There are many possible uses for virtual displays. Drivers or pilots could see a vehicle's speed projected onto the windshield. Video-game companies could use the contact lenses to completely immerse players in a virtual world without restricting their range of motion. And for communications, people on the go could surf the Internet on a midair virtual display screen that only they would be able to see.

sooner your display will be more realistic than the world you are walking around in.

just think of the REAL possibilities.

you walk into an important meeting, the wireless capabilities of the lens (see full article), will tell you who is who, and what their position is.

you can send presentations directly to the wearers lens, private messages to the wearer, now.......think further - mix it with something like the OCZ actuator.......and well.......we are talking THE future in 5-10 years!.

instead of mice, it will detect our hand movements, so no physical device, just move your hand like you would with a normal mouse, "drag and drop", will be something out of minority report, scroll.......same thing.

Any surface we look at, depending on how the technology is made, can be made into a writing surface or video "wall". You look at your TV, and it can supply extra information, forget teletext or whatever else. What worries me is that sooner or later we will probably start receiving popup ads.

miniturazation(sp) technologies will enable you to have chips implanted in your cranium, so final fantasy dream recorder here we come. Guys, we are talking 25 years tops here. All I need now is my flux capacitor and my 1.21 gigawatts!!!!
