China government says, "Got Permit?" No reincarnation without one!

Not gadgetnews, but too funny to pass up. The China government has banned any reincarnation that does not have the proper permit. The news story is here.

...and now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

More goodness on the Fujitsu LifeBook® U810 Mini-Notebook

...if you're in Japan. Forget the goofy looking dude, check out the antenna. That antenna is built-in to the U810 to receive digital TV broadcasts only in Japan - OneSeg.

so, if you were in Japan, you could be riding the train and watching "Gilligan's Island." Of course, in Japan, you'd probably be watching something like 「笑っていいとも!」

Either way, with OneSeg (AKA WanSeg, AKA 1SEG, AKA ワンセグ) and the LifeBook U810, you're covered!

Don't Tase Me, Bro! Don't Tase Me!

although, if I ever was to recommend this bogus type of gadget, you have license to do so. The pictured object is a "one stop slide and negative to digital picture" thing.

I ask this day when there are real scanners available, why would anyone need this??

Sony Rolly! Rolly, Rolly, Rolly, Get your Adverbs here

With apologies to the original Schoolhouse Rock!..., Sony has announced a new piece of music hardware named "Rolly." The egg-shaped looking hardware is pictured here.

Sony has created a product website to try to show what it is and what it can do. It's in Japanese, but don't worry, the content is primarily video. Here is the official press release in Japanese.

From their press release, this product takes Sony's expertise in music and melds it with their expertise in robotics...think, Aibo. There are only 2 buttons - power and Play. By bouncing the sound/music off of desks and floor, the Rolly creates "3D sound." Control of music such as fast forward or changing music settings is done by shaking the Rolly up and down or forward and backward. hmmmm....

Gadgets for Bourne

A couple of gadgets that Jason Bourne could use. Or, you, if you are so inclined.

The first is the Plustek Opticslim M12 Plus USB Power Mobile Scanner Pdf Ocr gadget.

PC Magazine has a review of the tiny, portable, sneaky, clandestine tool. All those important meetings notes of your colleagues, project schedules, family photos? They all require a quick scan to be analyzed later. This is definitely the tool for the job.

Once you've completed your work, you can sit down and relax with the Archos 704 80 GB WiFi Portable Digital Media Player. Since it has WiFi, you'll never be at a loss for content to listen to or watch. Unlike popular portable video/music gadgets, this one support DivX. Movie time?
