As crimes and accidents keeps happening every day, MIMOS Berhad, Malaysia’s National Research & Development Centre, has taken the incentive to research this problem by implementing a Rapid Intelligence, Surveillance and Response (RIS) solution to the matter. MIMOS addresses this as part of the Internet of Things (IoT) adoption in Malaysia.
A month ago, Microsoft announced that it will be releasing a super affordable full-fledged Windows 8.1 PC laptop with its partners, in a move to stem the increasing popularity of Google Chromebooks (especially in the US). A German tech blog, MOBILE GEEKS, has retrieved a leak for what is now being called the Stream 14 by HP, which at a rumoured RRP of just $200 could be one of the many super affordable Windows laptops Microsoft will be releasing.
AMD is usually best known for making processors and graphics cards, but it appears that the company is now branching out into the Solid State Drive business. Three R7-branded SSDs will be offered soon, although the company will not be directly involved in the manufacture of the component.
Navdy, a recent startup in San Francisco, US, has opened pre-orders for its new head-up display (HUD) device, also called Navdy. It can be mounted on the dashboard of your car, and will project imagery for navigation, or feed you alerts and information while driving. Unlike other dashboard mounted head-up displays out in the market, the Navdy unit is designed to project imagery that looks as though it appears out in front of the car, rather than a simple projection on a transparent plate.
While LTE has yet to reach mainstream status in Malaysia, a number of network equipment manufacturers have started to take in interest in the technology. One of them is the Singapore-based Aztech Technologies who is about to release the new Aztech MWR647 4G Mi-Fi into our market.
As opposed to other 3G or LTE Mi-Fi devices out there, the Aztech MWR647 is not just a mere one-trick pony since the Singaporean company has equipped it with plenty of additional features.
The USB 3.0 Promoter Group has announced that it has finalised the design of the new USB connector. Calling it the USB Type-C, it will be around the size of the current micro-USB connectors and is fully reversible; meaning that no longer will users be stumbling around trying to figure out which side is supposed to fit in the port. Unfortunately, this means that it is not compatible with older ports; which may lead to a long adoption process. It will also adopt the new USB 3.1 specification.
