…It’s Movie Monday: Hulger.tv?

Hulger 3D

Here’s a simple video with a neat little twist: Hulger makes Skype phones for the Mac and PC, so to show you what their phones actually look like, they have created a few 3D Vimeo videos for you to check out.

To get the full effect, you have to look at the screen with a piece of cardboard between your eyes (yes, this will make you look like a dumbass, but stick with me here) and just like a Magic Eye trick, the image will suddenly start to pop off the screen.

Give it a try:

To view the rest of their ‘catalog’, just visit the Hulger.tv site.

…Dell’s Studio Hybrid packs an environmental punch?

Dell Studio Hybrid

Dell’s new Studio Hybrid line of computers is a rather interesting offering.

Designed to be an “anywhere-you-want-it-desktop”, the pint-sized PC comes in six colors, as well as bamboo, features an ultra-compact design with Intel mobile technology performance, a slot-load DVD, HDMI, digital/analog TV tuner, and optional Blu-ray for home entertainment duties.

In addition, the Dell Hybrid helps to preserve the planet as Dell’s greenest and most power-efficient consumer desktop (75% less printed documentation, 70% less power usage, Energy Star 4.0 compliant, and packaging made form 95% recyclable materials).

A good-looking computer that’s good for the environment and performs too?

What’s not to love?

…It’s Things Thursday: Nimbus Cloud Computer?

Nimbus Cloud Computer

The Nimbus Cloud Computer “works like a PC” only it’s “better than a PC” because it’s free. Instead of paying for the Nimbus, you simply allow them to show you an ad while using the computer, and it pays for itself. If you don’t want the ad, you can also pay a monthly fee to use the Nimbus ad free, but where’s the fun in that?

    A Cloud Computer is a re-imagination of the idea of a computer. We think that an ordinary computer is too expensive, too complicated, and too much for what most people want to use a computer for. What we did is put all of the costly and complicated pieces of hardware and software into our data centers. You then use a smaller, simpler, much less expensive device that’s always connected to the internet to control your computer. We think this is a much better way for you to do just what you want with a computer.

The computer comes with a keyboard and mouse, and you simply provide a monitor and Internet access, and you’re on your way.

Is this the future of computing?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Buzzword?

Buzzword

Buzzword is “the first real word processor for the web”.

Though this description sounds rather boring, the site itself is rather impressive.

Basically an online version of Word, it’s built in Flash, so there’s plenty of fancy features, and the online interface means you can use it on either a Mac or a PC.

Another advantage of online applications: No need to install. Traveling and in need of a word processor? No problem; Just fire up Buzzword and away you go.

Having your documents online also means it’s easy to share with friends, family and co-workers, co-editing and co-writing something through its path to perfection.

Lastly, it’s owned by Adobe, so there’s definitely no lack of support, and the chance that this winds up in the dead pool is slim to none.

It’s definitely worth a try, so click the link and see what’s buzzing.
