New Dual Core Atom/ION 2 Netbooks Are Here
It looks like the best of both worlds; a power thrifty, high performance dual core Intel Atom processor paired with a high performance, second generation, Nvidia ION 2 GPU in a lightweight netbook. The Intel z550 dual core Atom chip is part of the Pineview family of 45 nm Atom processors. It runs at 1.5 GHz, supports DDR3 memory and should make multitasking on your netbook work better. The Nvidia ION 2 chip is well suited for playing HD video from sites like YouTube and Hulu and can make high resolution gaming on netbooks more responsive.
One of the first netbooks to include this high powered combination could be the ASUS Eee PC 1015N which reports say will be available in the U.S. in September for $399. The 10–inch 1015N looks interesting but the one we’re really interested in is ASUS’ 12.1-inch netbook called the Eee PC VX6 and will feature the Lamborghini styling. Look for more of these paired processors appear in netbooks with screen sizes ranging from 10 – 12 inches to appear on the market this fall.
Network Connection for
Connected TVs and More

If you do get yourself a connected TV, Blu-ray player, receiver, or some other gear that needs a high speed Internet connection and it's located too far from the WiFi router or don’t want to run a line to it, you might want to consider a new product from Western Digital call Livewire Powerline AV Network Kit.

Using the Western Digital device is simple; you plug one device into an AC plug near your router another plug goes to the router and then plug the companion device into an AC plug wherever you want network connectivity. They claim to deliver 200Mbps with this $140 kit.

We’ve always been skeptical about powerline networking (and still are) with reports of problems transmitting through circuit breakers and issues with interference from electrically noisy devices like hair dryers but the powerline networking companies claim those problems have all been solved. We have to admit it's a compelling idea to "bridge" up to the third floor from the basement using the AC wiring in the house.

End of the SED Era
On August 18, 2010 Canon announced it was closing down SED Inc, a subsidiary of Canon that had been developing Surface-condition Electron-emitter Displays (SED). The idea of a super skinny TV with all the great qualities of a CRT like great color, deep blacks and large viewing angles was attractive. Instead of one beam coming from the long neck of a CRT, an SED would have thousands of individual guns striking phosphors directly in front of them. Unfortunately, we're sorry to say it sounds like there were too many obstacles to overcome to make a commercially viable TV from the technology. There’s some hope for similar TV technology (FED) using carbon nanotubes as electron emitters so all may not be lost.
