Samsung has designed what people are touting as the 'iPhone Killer' - the F700. Like its intended competitor, features a full touch screen and the inclusion of a QWERTY key pad (unlike the iPhone) for users who are not yet familiar with a touch-screen-only user interface. The F700 also features VibeTonz technology which allows users to feel the buttons accompanied by responsive vibrations.

A "Drag and drop" method of touch screen was adopted for easier menu navigation, Samsung indicated, and the device includes a music play list control. Volume, play lists, brightness of screens as well as other menu controls can be controlled utilizing the touch screen. Samsung has also touted the 3G capabilities of the Ultra Smart F700, with 3G not initially scheduled to be supported by the iPhone.

Most impressivly the F700 supports the High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) network standard. Samsung pointed out that once the 7.2 Mbps HSDPA network is completely deployed, F700 users can download an 4MB MP3 song in 4.4 seconds.

The company has not stipulated when the handset will hit the market, and at what price.

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences
have made an intresting little thing that can predict your actions before you do them.

The 'multivariate pattern recognition' technique uses a computer trained to recognise certain changes in brain activity associated with actions. It can predict intended actions before they occur with 70 per cent accuracy.


What do you think about this?

Hehe I immediately thought of a dietry thing.

Device senses u going for a cream cake, and zaps u !

This brain stuff is bizarre. They already know about 2 areas in the front of the brain that if they`re damaged in some way will make u do things that u would previously wouldn`t have due to the moralities of the acts.

Couple the 2 together and make every1 wear em :p
