Dell charge 10$ for each BIOS configuration

Monday, June 18, 2007


I was configuring a Dell notebook D630 on Dell's website when I stumbled upon the following options:

(1) You can pre-configure your BIOS on the website but Dell would charge 10$ for each configuration





(2) To remove some of the microsoft components such as Microsoft Outlook and games, Dell would charge 2$ each. You also have an option to remove the default Dell wallpaper.



These two options gives me some idea on their profit margin.

Debate and discuss intelligent alternative topics on AboveTopSecret


If you like reading conspiracy theories or debate/discuss on alternative intelligent topics then the forum hosted on "Above Top Secret" might interest you. Most of the discussion is monitored by around 50 staff members and I found almost all topics more or less interesting.

The topics range from anything interesting; from aliens to economics to politics.

At the time of writing this blog: the following was the hot topic.

[Quote]
"my granddad passed away about a year ago, he worked for Johnson space center or nasa back in the 1960s. our family held an estate sale, and we found a reel of old movie film in his safe. It had it converted to videotape-this is what it shows. I dont know what to make of it, but it looks odd to me .

I dunno if this will get me int trouble but I hope not. I felt i had to share it

Vixy.net - Download online videos direct to PC / iPod / PSP


[Quote from vixy.net]

This service allows you convert a Flash Video / FLV file (YouTube's videos,etc) to MPEG4 (AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3/3GP) file online. It is using a compressed domain transcoder technology (outline in Japanese). It converts FLV to MPEG4 faster and less lossy than a typical transcoder.

When you submit an url, it will download and convert to the video format. Then you can download the converted file.

PhotoSynth (and SeaDragon) could challenge Google's Street View


Am sure you must have looked at PhotoSynth tech preview and the ever famous video hosted on TED.com that talks about photosynth's features. You might be surprised to know that photosynth product is not an in house microsoft project rather was made possible via University of Washington and others. Here are some of the features of photosynth:

* walk or fly through a scene to see photos from any angle;
* seamlessly zoom in or out of a photograph even if it's gigapixels in size;
* see where pictures were taken in relation to one another;
* find similar photos to the one you’re currently viewing;
* explore a custom tour or see where you’ve been; or
* send a collection to a friend.

Photosynth was further enhanced using the SeaDragon software that allows faster rendering and navigation. SeaDragon is a Seattle based company which was acquired by Microsoft in February 2007.

Enlarge pics without loss of detail or sharpness


Photo Zoom Pro 2 allows you to enhance and digitally enlarge your picture without any jagged edges, loss of details or over bloated pixels. I tried it on a couple of pictures and it delivered consist enlarged pictures without any lose of sharpness. Photo Zoom uses patented spline interlacing algorithm to achieve the same.

I think its a neat tool for all those who want to print pics clicked with small count megapixel camera. Here is the result of enlarging the picture twice using the software.

[Original Picture - 1630 pixels wide]


[Double enlarged Pic Using Photo Zoom Pro - 3000 px]

Paper Thick RFIDs

Saturday, June 9, 2007


In 2003, aimed at radio frequency identification, Hitachi released a 0.3mm X 0.3mm, .60 micron thick IC with integrated antenna. This year in february Hitachi released a similar IC that is .15mm x .15mm, .75 micron thick.



With this size RFID IC, the application is unlimited. RFID adoption in various areas has been steadfast all this time. You could see RFID tags at airport sticker tags, passports, super stores etc. At the same time the security experts are quite concerned about the way RFID broadcasts information. The experts have already shown how they could clone and crack passports using RFID.

ImmuneID has come up with a better approach of letting RFID tags broadcast the data only at the user's discretion. Check out more on ImmuneID on this is made possible.
