The Nokia N810 was launched this week, and among the main details, I've got a few more impressions for you. (What few impressions I could draw from the quirky device.) • Screen is A+ in sharpness, color, brightness and res (800x480). It's not multitouch, though, and you'll need a stylus. • The keyboard's clicks are a bit shallow and the space between each is not so well defined, but it is something you could get used to. • The Linux apps were not readily available yet, and some. • An app I missed in my video walkthrough is that Gizmo has video conferencing support using the front-mounted cam. (And there is no app for using it to take straight- up photos.) • Would I buy it? I'm not sure I need it. But the dev community for Nokia tablets is pretty popular (although not as popular as s60) so I'm sure there are untold uses for many inside of this thing. • When WiMax hits, an upgraded device like this could be very useful. Right now, it's a Wi-Fi or tethered over Bluetooth device.

Despite the fact they are flesh-eating guerilla warriors capable of thoroughly thrashing a vastly technologically superior foe, everyone's takeaway about the Ewoks is that they're cute, stress-lowering, fuzzy teddy bears. But Star Wars. Battlefront II has added a new mode that reminds us that these teddies can be utterly terrifying when you're their target.
Photo. Alex Cranz (Gizmodo) Last year AMD finally gave us something we desperately needed with the release of Ryzen. A viable rival to Intel in the CPU space. The rivalry has meant faster CPUs for desktops and laptops as each company races to surpass the other, but there's a potential problem for AMD. It doesn't have the same track record for improved performance as Intel. In the past it's stumbled, barely keeping pace with its larger competitor. If competition is going to be sustained - if we're going to have long term competition that drives down prices and puts faster chips in our computers, than even a minor architecture change from AMD needs to have big and speedy results. The second generation of Ryzen does.
