Comments Off

Gartner stated that Apple is the only PC manufacturer based on Western Europe which continuously grows.

During a continent wide breakdown on Wednesday, Gartner stated that Apple was the only major computer manufacturer – based in Western Europe – that continuously grows. Apple increased its shipment by half a percent, hitting 7% of the market. Meanwhile, other Windows-based PC makers such as HP, Delli, and Acer dropped in the same period of time.

The said pattern was the same from one country to another. Apple gained share in the UK and had a boost in France where its raw shipments increased up to 6.4 points to reach 5.8% — enough to put it in the top five for the first time. Samsung was one of the few others to see an upside in any area, but it was only registered in the top five in France.

“We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S. We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right timeframe.” ---Jeff Barney, vice president of Toshiba’s digital products division.

People will not get the chance to have the first look on the new Google TV next month on CES 2011. Unfortunately, Google asked for a few more time before from its partners–Toshiba, LG Electronics and Sharp. The Consumer Electronics Show will take place this January in Las Vegas. According to New York Times, Google needs to tweak the software a little bit to make it perfect for launch.

As of the moment, only Sony and Logitech are the ones who are actually selling the Internet TVs. Samsung and Vizio are supposed to reveal their Google TV devices at CES 2011 opted to go with simultaneous launches with Toshiba, Sharp and LG’s sets.

“We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S.,” said Jeff Barney, the vice president of Toshiba’s digital products division. “We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right timeframe.”

You have the awesome 3D TV in town, but the glasses just make it not so entertaining. Good thing, there's now Toshiba 3D TV -- a no-glass, 3D, crystal clear display. What's with the new Toshiba 3D TV?

If you are the type of viewer that loves the 3D TV but hates the glasses, then the newest 3D TV from Toshiba might be for you! The Tokyo-based company unveiled the world’s first high-definition, liquid crystal display, 3D TV. And here’s the good news, no 3D glasses required. The Toshiba 3D TV uses a “perpendicular lenticular sheet” that consists an array of small lenses. These small lenses directs light from the TV to nine points in front of it. Due to this, the brain of a viewer that sits inside the viewing zone integrates these points into a single 3D image. The system is akin to Nintendo’s 3DS.
