LG Smart FridgeThink about the conveniences that smartphone and laptops have afforded: we can program our DVR while at the airport or in our cars home from work after getting the weather forecast for the next few hours while simultaneously downloading videos from friends and coworkers.

Given the particular developments made recently with product recognizing programs that operate using video technology and the live streaming info feeds that we’ve become accustomed to, appliance giant LG has made a bid that the next things that homeowners will want connected to the Internet will be their appliances; at least the Vice President Kim Young-Soo believes so.

Originally in 2000, Kim Young-Soo and his company LG released a fridge that was Wi-Fi enabled. While only ten years back, the technology simply wasn’t well received.

Apple has finally released the White version of iPhone 4

Apple iPhone 4 WhiteSome gimmicks work wonderfully. For example, let’s take a trip down memory lane and recall the episode of South Park where Eric Cartman, the incorrigible antagonist in many cases against his three other childhood friends, buys a theme park and advertises that no one can enjoy it with exception for he, himself. Apple may have taken this strategy to heart when considering their product line has consistently released white plastic hardware prior to the availability of the color black. Whether ivory or ebony, people always supply Apple with an outstanding hardware release, lining up out front of stores and camping to get their hands on new products. It seems as though when sales begin to slow, Apple’s motto is “bring in a new color”!

On Thursday, April 28th, 2011, the white iPhone 4 became available through Apple stores and authorized retailers including AT&T and Verizon. What was reportedly a rare setback, the white iPhone 4 was delayed for release due to “manufacturing challenges”.

Acer Iconia W500 Now when the crowd is busy with the iOS vs. Android, Acer is busy releasing a new approach to the tablet computers market: Iconia W500. This Windows 7 tablet takes a completely different attempt to be the best alternative of the traditional notebooks and netbooks. The 1 GHz AMD Fusion processor is also another thing that makes this tablet completely different from the other tablets.

Still if your complain is about the on screen keyboard of this tablet, then you have a great alternative to that: a docking station with a keyboard is all that you need to convert it to a complete Windows 7 laptop. Besides this, the keyboard also includes a pair of USB ports on  every side. The connection of the tablet with the dock is not something complex as it is actually connected through the USB port. About the design, the only complain you can make is the weight as it weighs around 950 grams and is bit of heavy to hold it with a single hand.
