Наводнение в София, 23 юни 2006

В момента в центъра на София „морето е до колене“ след поройния дъжд и град, който се изля….. Вижте какво се случва…Снимките са правени на кръстовището на бул. Евлоги Георгиев и ул. Граф Игнатиев. Последната снимка е от бул. България и Несторов.

Samsung's Ultra Edition 9.9, 12.9, 6.9: World’s slimmest cellphones launched

Get ready Guinness ’cause Samsung just launched an entire series of „World’s slimmest“ handsets. Sure, we’ve seen the D830 clam, X820 candybar, and FCC approved D900 slider before, only now they’ve been turned-out onto that mean global scene official, spec’d, and rebadged with their ultra-slim, millimeter measurements right in the name: the Ultra Edition 9.9 (D830), 12.9 (D900), and 6.9 (X820) pictured left-to-right. The UE 9.9 brings tri-band (900/1800/1900MHz) GPRS/EDGE, a 2 megapixel cam with auto-focus and flash, a 2.3-inch 240×320 262k TFT main display (0.8-inch 92×16 grayscale external), Bluetooth, 80MB embedded memory with MicroSD expansion, MP3/AAC media player, and even an MPEG4 recorder with TV-out jack slammed into this world’s slimmest flip. The UE 6.9 brings pretty much the same network coverage, cam, Bluetooth, media capabilities, and on-board memory as the 9.9 but had to forgo the microSD card and flash while dropping down to a 1.9-inch 176×220 262k TFT display in order to slip into that world’s slimmest, 6.9-mm, 2.33-ounce dress. The relatively plump UE 12.9 takes advantage of all that, uh, roominess to squeeze in quad-band GPRS/EDGE, a 3.13 megapixel shooter, 2.1-inch 240×320 262k TFT, that good media lovin’ we’ve already seen, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo audio support, and 80MB with microsSD expansion. Yeah, that makes it the world’s slimmest slider, er, with 3 megapixel camera – kind of a stretch, but that’s how Sammy likes to roll. They didn’t bother with drop dates, countries, or prices but the fact that the press release hit their English site gives us hope for this Samsung triptych to drop in the US sometime this year.

Researchers Say New Chip Breaks Speed Record

IBM and the Georgia Institute of Technology announced today that their researchers have demonstrated the first silicon-based chip capable of operating at frequencies above 500 GHz – 500 billion cycles per second – by cryogenically “freezing” the chip to 451 degrees below zero Fahrenheit (4.5 Kelvins). Such extremely cold temperatures are found naturally only in outer space, but can be artificially achieved on Earth using ultra-cold materials such as liquid helium. (Absolute Zero, the coldest possible temperature in nature, occurs at minus 459.67 degrees Fahrenheit).By comparison, 500 GHz is more than 250 times faster than today’s cell phones, which typically operate at approximately 2 GHz. Computer simulations suggest that the silicon-germanium (SiGe) technology used in the chip could ultimately support even higher (near-TeraHertz – 1,000 GHz) operational frequencies even at room temperature.
