New Products from Belkin, Kodak, Art Technology, Apple and MPC Computers
The Belkin Bluetooth USB adapter with Kodak Picture Upload technology lets users save, print and share photos from camera phones. It transfers full-resolution - rather than compressed - images automatically when users walk within Bluetooth range of their PC. The adapter works with other devices enabled with Bluetooth technology such as PDAs, headsets and printers. It's compatible with Windows XP and Vista operating systems.
Art Technology's Phosphor dual analog-digital wristwatch uses E Ink's electronic paper display technology. The display consists of pure black and pure white particles, giving the same contrast as found on a printed page - more than twice the contrast of a conventional LCD panel. Since it can be easily read in bright sunlight or in dimly lit environments, no backlighting is needed and battery life is extended.
Wisp of a Notebook
The Apple MacBook Air notebook computer measures 12.8x8.94x.76 inches. It has a 13.3-inch LED-backlit widescreen display with 1280x800 resolution, a full-size and backlit keyboard, and a built-in video camera. The MacBook Air is powered by a 1.6 GHz or 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4 MB L2 cache, and includes 2 GB of memory, an 80 GB 1.8-inch hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi technology and Bluetooth 2.1.
MPC Computers' MailFRAME e-mail archiving appliance automates the process of capturing, storing and retrieving messages. End-users can search and retrieve archived messages even if messages were previously deleted or lost from their mailbox. The MailFRAME connects to any open-standards-based messaging server and makes "photo-copies" of the mail messages for storage into any standards-based storage device.
