iPad 3: Super-high-res retina display is conformed



"Really have to see"? Does that suggest retina display? 
What about "touch"?


Dell's Answer to Macbook Air - XPS 13 Ultrabook

Looks pretty cool, like the carbon fibre base, the Gorillia class screen and backlit keyboard.
Question: will Dell be sued by Apple for the similarity with Macbook Air?

Google Dictionary in Chrome is quite Handy

If you use Google Chrome browser, one of the must have tool is the Google Dictionary. If you find any word you want to explain, double click on it, Google Dictionary will show the explanation as well as a icon for the sound.  
Speed is pretty fast.

Here is the link

Chrome For Android is available now

However, it is just for ICS (Android 4.0) :(



Android App - Waze: Get Traffic Info From Other Drivers



This cool app allows you see the traffic jam, police, accident and other information reported by other drivers.
You can also report yourself.

I like this app since it provides a way for drivers on the road to communicate.

I have used this app for a while and find that it still needs more people to use it to make it really useful.

One concern: will it be a distraction if driver tries to report while driving?


Recommend Google Chrome browser


I have used Firefox for many years. But recently I found out Chrome is better and faster than Firefox. Best feature I like is the Chrome Sync, which will sync you book marks, browse history, tool bar across multiple computers.


It also better integrate with other Google services. You can install free Web apps including Angry Bird and Plants vs. Zombie. 


Update: I have install Chrome for Android on ASUS Transformer (just upgrade to ICS 4.0). I liked it. The best thing is I can get all my bookmarks using Chrome Sync.
