HP unveils USB-powered screen for laptops at CES 2013
Wednesday, January 09th, 2013 | Author: Elaine

HP has announced the USB-powered U160 portable monitor at CES 2013, potentially answering the prayers of sales reps who struggle to crowd people around an ultraportable laptop for presentations.

The U160 is a 15.6in display with a slightly old school resolution of 1,366 x 768, but its biggest benefits is how it works – getting both its power and graphical feed from a laptop’s USB ports drastically reduces the amount of cable needed to power a presentation.

The iPad Smart Cover-style case keeps it safe in transit, although its 1.5kg heft means it weighs almost as much as the average ultraportable on its own.

The price could prove appealing, though: the U160’s price in the USA will be $179, or roughly £110. It will go on sale later this month.

Paper USB will be Developed
Saturday, January 05th, 2013 | Author: Elaine

The intelliPaper Technology launched the Paper USB flash drive recently. The little flash driives put the USB connectors and the storage chipset in a much thinner piece of paper. It is the thinnest usb flash drive that I ever heard.

It is incredible that you can storage data on papers. It is not only small but also light. This can open the imagination to apply the paper usb as many kinds of gift cards, invitation cardstock and event tickets or travel tickets even bus tickets. Just think of whatever paper file for display as possible as you can.


The company, intelliPaper is seeking partners to raise the project before bringing it to the market. But you still need to notice that the capacity of these paper devices is not so big, ranging from 8 to 32MB.

The USB Charger “Feeds” Itself
Friday, January 04th, 2013 | Author: Elaine

As the technology developed, we are close to the situation that where anything can be powered by rechargeable virtually anything else, and USB battery charger is the perfect example to support this statement. No need to say again how helpful AA batteries are and how many gadgets and devices we are using for them. However, all batteries are plagued by the same problem, ie the fact that they run out of power sooner or later, and charging or replacing them are the only two solutions to be appealed.

Of course, the easiest way to solve the problem is by purchasing some new, but it will not help our environment. Thus, the rechargeable batteries are a “greener” way to do the job.

However, carrying a bulky charger, on a business trip can not be an idea everyone is comfortable. You may still need some AA batteries in working condition, then what is the best option to consider? The USB Battery Charger is a very useful little device that can connect to any USB port absolutely alive, no matter if you’re thinking about a laptop or a desktop. It will take 2 AA batteries, and will have them charged as you are caring for their joint venture

The USB battery charger comes with two rechargeable Ni-MH AA cells, and is ready to use straight from the box. Sure, you can still have a spare pair with you in case you are a device-a-holic who can not or will not accept being separated from his / her gadgets. This general idea has a legal and functional glitch, as you can see, ie, two AA batteries are quite heavy for the small USB port.

Now, if you have a USB hub, things are OK just because the charger will put the plan into something, but it is uncertain how long the battery will last while USB connected in the air on the back of your computer. However, forthe price of $ 22, you can not have but good words for the USB battery charger.
