Cool desktop all-in-one HP Spectre One

TheNextWeb site called it as iMac version HP. The HP Spectre One is HP’s new premium all-in-one desktop, with a unique, attractive design that evokes the aluminum unibody designs that are en vogue these days. The Spectre One is centered around a 23.6-inch widescreen with seamless glass. The system’s PC components are built into a curving base, allowing HP to make the screen itself 11.5mm (0.45-inch) thick.

The Spectre One features an aluminum construction, Intel Ivy Bridge processor,1GB Nvidia Graphics, a wireless keyboard with matching trackpad, Beats Audio, two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI-in port, and most interestingly, NFC support. The Spectre One also includes a packed-in wireless mouse for those users who prefer one. That said, the trackpad and 10-finger touch screen are optimized for the Windows 8 user interface.

The Spectre One is equipped with NFC technology, where you can program the computer to perform specific actions when that NFC tag makes contact. Users will be able to log into Windows 8 with a simple tap of their NFC-capable smartphone and easily sync and stream files between their handset and desktop.

Cool concept– Hybrid Camper Car Plus Caravan Combo

Campervans are great for the wide-open road, but what happens when you reach your destination and want to travel in something a bit less clunky? This variant concept RV comes with a detachable car to let you cruise city streets once you exit the high-speed freeway.

This design challenge was tackled by Christian Susana with great attention to detail, from how each portable portion (car and camper form) looks separately to how they appear as whole when plugged back together.

The tiny two-seat car part is definitely built for short trips, looking like a cross between a golf cart and a Mini Cooper.

The larger back-end trailer takes its cues from classic VW-type campers, maximizing space with a lofted sleeping area, flip-down table-and-chairs set as well as compact storage solutions set into any remaining available areas. Curved lines also recall traditional Airstream trailers, which make maximum use of sleek streamlined exterior forms and more spacious-seeming inside spaces.

Expansive side windows depart from the classic privacy-oriented caravan style, abstractly referencing tourers in their openness to the outside world. Likewise, a front window long the top lets daring passengers get a sneak peak of what lies ahead … or an unfortunate up-close pavement view if you slide open the back door while someone is driving (safety second!).

Microsoft updated its new logo after 25 years

Microsoft has unveiled a new corporate logo “to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products” as the US tech giant ramps up for a series of big launches.

The new logo, updated for the first time in 25 years, features a square which contains four separate colored squares. The old logo had a similar look but the squares appeared deformed as if part of a flag waving in the wind.

The move comes with Microsoft ramping up for its Windows 8 platform and its first tablet computer, called Surface. The company is also making an aggressive effort to gain ground in the smartphone market.

“It’s been 25 years since we’ve updated the Microsoft logo and now is the perfect time for a change,” said Microsoft brand strategy manager Jeff Hansen.

“This is an incredibly exciting year for Microsoft as we prepare to release new versions of nearly all of our products. From Windows 8 to Windows Phone 8 to Xbox services to the next version of Office, you will see a common look and feel across these products providing a familiar and seamless experience on PCs, phones, tablets and TVs.

“This wave of new releases is not only a reimagining of our most popular products, but also represents a new era for Microsoft, so our logo should evolve to visually accentuate this new beginning.”

The logo also includes the name Microsoft in the Segoe font which is used in products and marketing communications, along with the new squares.

“The symbol is important in a world of digital motion,” Hansen said. “The symbol’s squares of color are intended to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products.”

The new logo is being used starting today on the Microsoft.com website and in three Microsoft retail stores today.

“It will sign off all of our television ads globally,” Hansen said.

“And it will support our products across various forms of marketing… We’re excited about the new logo, but more importantly about this new era in which we’re reimagining how our products can help people and businesses throughout the world realise their full potential.”
