OCZ Quits DRAM biz; Internet TV with iGUGU and Vulkano; Samsung RF4289 Refrigerator of the Future
A business falls, InternetTV takes a share of the spotlight, and Samsung unveils the refrigerator of the future. This round-up gives the industry's recent ups and downs.
Several interesting news bits came our way today, folks as the world of technology had its ups and downs plus whoah and whuts over the past hours. OCZ finally lets go of the DRAM market, iGUGU and Vulkano tries to impress us with their versions of Internet TV, plus Samsung may be on to something with their RF4289 Refrigerator.
Let’s start things up with OCZ. What’s up OCZ? After a decade of being a pretty nice provider of the world’s finest DRAM, it looks like the company is pulling the plug on that department and decides to focus more on their SSD products. After receiving several competition where speed and prices usually dictate the winner, it seems like getting too much competition on one single desktop hardware makes it hard for one to truly succeed. We’ll miss those sleek Z designs embedded on those shiny DRAMs, but we wish OCZ luck on their focused endeavor.
Let’s switch the channel to Internet TV this time. Through a hands-on demo at Engadget, iGUGU InternetTV seems to be a pretty nice option for those who want to experience the technology without the need for a set-up box. The iGUGU (we hope they’ll think of a better name next time) only requires a PC and your television where the software will take care of the rest. Vulkano on the otherhand has their share of the InternetTV limelight as they show off their Blast and Flow products which allows users to watch live tv, browse episode guides, and access to recorded content via PC, Mac, smartphones and tablets.
Finally, we have Samsung’s RF4289, which certainly made impressions at the International CES 2011. In what we think might be the future of getting a glass of water in that chunk of metal, owners can now Tweet, access Google Calendar, listen leave digital notes, and even use Pandora via 8-inch LCD screen. Samsung also boasts that its the first integrated Wi-Fi fridge.
That wraps things up for now. Make sure to get the latest scoop on technology today with Gadg.
