Pixel Qi takes aim at Android tablets with higher-res 10-inch and 7-inch reflective LCDs (hands-on)

We've been holding out hope for Pixel Qi devices for years, ever since we first heard that the OLPC spin-off would begin manufacturing its displays for use by any OEM looking for a battery-sipping LCD. Unfortunately, Mary Lou's LCDs, capable of switching between a sunlight-readable reflective mode and full-color transmissive state, have had limited uptake by some less than desirable partners. Still, the team has returned to Computex with the 7-inch (1024 x 600) panel that was teased in December last year and a new higher resolution 10-inch (1280 x 800) panels offering an 80 percent power savings over conventional LCDs, according to Pixel Qi. In fact, the 10-inch panel consumes just 2.7W in color mode or 0.4W in reflective "eReader" mode.

We had the chance to see the new displays up close here at Computex and were immediately struck by the improvement in pixel density on the 10-inch panel. Making the leap to WVGA has been a major boon, as identical images looked sharper and better-defined than on the 1024 x 600 current-gen Pixel Qi display. The brightness on the new screen is lower than on its predecessor, but that's because the company still hasn't finalized things -- we're promised significantly better readability with the backlight off in the final product and brighter pictures when it's on. The 7-incher, originally intended for mass production in the second quarter will now sample in Q3, to be followed by the more pixel-dense 10-inch model, which will hit production in Q4. Scope out the newness in the gallery below or jump past the break for video.

Sony promises global PSN restoration by week's end, except in some parts of Asia

It looks like Sony's long, PSN nightmare is finally coming to an end -- almost. Today, the company announced that it will restore PlayStation Network and Qriocity services in the Americas, Europe and most of Asia by week's end. The only exceptions are Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan, where users will have to await further details before regaining full access. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, spokeswoman Yuki Kobayashi added that Sony is in the process of finalizing an agreement to protect credit card owners in these three countries, where authorities have taken a particularly cautious approach to the data breach. This means that the company won't see global restoration by the end of May, as previously hoped, but Kobayashi said the plans were delayed simply because Sony needed more time to fully secure its infrastructure (sound familiar?). You can read a lengthier explanation in the press release after the break.

Apple to unveil iCloud, iOS 5 on Monday, June 6

Apple to unveil iCloud Monday, June 6
Had some doubts that Apple was heading skyward? Those lingering concerns can now be put to rest. Apple has confirmed that it will be announcing iCloud on June 6th, what it's calling an "upcoming cloud services offering." That will be part of the keynote for this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, known to the cool kids as WWDC. This is, of course, where everyone has come to expect new iPhones to come to light, but this year we're thinking the focus will be more on software, and indeed Apple's event notice indicates that the big highlights will be Mac OS X Lion and the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 5. This is a decidedly non-Apple way to announce something big like iCloud, making us wonder what other surprises Steve Jobs will have for us at the event -- yes, he'll be kicking things off. As ever you can find out as it happens here, live.

Nyan Cat (aka Pop Tart Cat) 101

For some, a defacement page from the PBS LulzSec hack will be the first introduction to Nyan Cat. For others, the animated pop-tart rainbow feline is already a familiar form of internet meme happies, despite having originated just two months ago. This Know Your Meme feature is a good place overview of its origins. The attention-deficit-version is this: PRguitarman created it. Everything began on April 2, 2011, at LOL-COMICS, then hit Tumblr, and from there, mutated and spread rapidly like so many strains of gleeful, 8-bit ebola. Below, one of the early videos to surface; and following that, a dubstep remix of the same, both via Laughing Squid....

Google flight schedule search takes off, helps you figure out when to get aboard

Been wishing you could find flight information the same way you would for a bus or train? Now you're covered with the new flight schedule search feature Google launched last week. By simply typing "flights from / to" a destination in the search bar, it displays specific flight routes or all routes from a particular airport, all of the airlines serving the locales along with flight numbers, and travel dates / times. The ITA travel search software which the DOJ finally allowed Google to purchase last month isn't powering the feature, although Google stated on its blog that the flight schedule search is a "small step" in an overall effort to make finding flight information simpler. The service supports ten languages, and you'll find more info by hitting the source link below. Now if only it could tell us whether our flight has WiFi...

T-Mobile G2x gets a $50 price bump, still no stock in sight

It looks like the G2x saga isn't over quite yet; after first disappearing from store shelves due to quality concerns "high demand," the dual-core Android smartphone is getting a slight price hike from T-Mobile. As of May 27th, the out-of-stock Froyo handset decided it was worth an extra Grant (quite the presumptuous fellow, no?), dialing in with a new price of $249 after rebate. An internal screenshot describes the price hop as a reaction to inventory constraints. The supposed effects of supply and demand aside, this price adjustment feels a little shaky amid reports of botched WiFi handoffs, overheating, light leakage and reboot issues. With any luck, the G2x will return to store shelves sporting a worry-free update to Gingerbread; but if you aren't counting on it, you can still snag one at Amazon to the tune of $99. Oh, and look: plenty in stock, too!

This Week In Trailers: Film Socialisme, Scalene, The Artist, Xu Xia, Magic Trip

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they?re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I?m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers?





Film Socialisme Trailer

We all can point to examples of those in this industry who have lost their edge, their hunger, their passion to make a good film. For an actor, it's the lack of exuding the very thing that made us fall in love with them. For a director, it's the inability to make a good film.

Jean-Luc Godard doesn't seem to have that problem.

This trailer exudes the kind of confidence and starkness that you see in a movie like Breathless but it's the harnessing of the medium itself that not only is delightful it's impressive.

The presentation is so jarring and so stand-offish you wonder what it is you're actually being pitched. Is this a movie about a cruise ship or is it something else? The mixed media of both film and video, and some distorted video that drips with eeriness, that plays over the haunting sounds of a pipe organ is wonderful to just experience. There isn't a sell job here as much as there is a true exploration of an idea. The idea being, of course, that this movie isn't like anything you'll catch this year.

Sure, the fast forward speed at which images and moments fly by don't allow you to get a grip on anything you see it nonetheless tells you volumes about what's being communicated. There's some confusing imagery of a woman standing with a burro at a gas station, another woman getting her picture taken on the side of the road, some people can be seen living their lives inside a house in a way that's not only not boring, it's fascinating.

I can't say for sure what we're supposed to feel but this doesn't ever stray into art for art's sake. I would be enraged if I thought there was too much pretension injected in this trailer but there's something genuinely trying to be said here and I can almost make it out that my mind aches as I try and understand what it is they want me to buy. I'm most certainly going to do so but its obfuscation is such a tease.



Scalene Trailer

Margo Martindale is a special kind of actress.

She's a character actor, a working actor, who has been knocking down parts for decades simply because she knows what she's doing. She blends in with the environment and is one of those women you wish more actresses could be like: a chameleon, not an ego driven starlet who needs attention more than genuine acclaim. Here, though, she's front and center and what little we can see of her there is a range of emotions on display for a film that doesn't look easily classifiable but it's wickedly entrancing.

In a series this week of trailers that don't seem to have any words being spoken at all, here is the second of three trailers that use only music to convey the emotion running through the narrative. This trailer, though, has some toughness. There is raw emotion exuding through Martindale and it radiates through the small screen. It's obvious that writer/director Zack Parker saw what Margo was able to do and he seems to have tapped right into that source as we see Margo in various states of mental acuity. There's a manic version of her, a sullen version, and even one that looks genuinely pleased.

The exciting thing about this trailer is that it makes you want to know more about what's happening. The shots that are chosen are wisely picked because it prevents any opportunity for there to be any lulls. Your attention doesn't drift because the trailer won't let you drift. There seems to be sharp schisms of mental instability all around and it's exciting. For all the trailers that want to play pretty and prance around what we're all here to see it's just plain great to be sold on a movie without any context. It's an anthem to anarchy of sorts but it fits so well when you understand what it is the movie is really trying to say, what it's putting out there.

It's ballsy to put something out there, at this budgetary level, and let this be their commercial that will get people to see it. There isn't anything commercial about it but it's just too good to pass up when the level of craftsmanship that went into making something look so odd and so enticing. The scrambling of names is a nice touch as well. It conveys the crazed nature of both the protagonist and evokes a certain understanding about the movie in general.



The Artist Trailer

This one is a complete delight.

Written and directed by Michael Hazanavicius this trailer is about cinema that feels good, that seems like an old blanket that can still warm your body. I can hardly believe that the man credited for bringing the two OSS 117 films to our shore made this kind of movie simply based on the level of zaniness of OSS but, here, has made something so unique that this is truly a trailer that needs no further examination other than experiencing it.

Enjoy this one simply for the way it tells a story without ever giving you a word.



Magic Trip Trailer



This is certainly an interesting trailer for a new Alex Gibney film.

I'm endlessly fascinated by the choices the man has made and looking a few paces beyond this movie, directing a Lance Armstrong documentary (wondering if he'll include the accusations made on 60 Minutes a few nights ago) and directing a doc on Wikileaks, the man is one of the premiere examiners of current sociological issues and the impact they have on our collective consciousness.

The trailer here is a unique blend of personal footage and cheeky glibness. What's more is that this serves as a document of sorts that looks at a time in the 60's that was the forerunner of the hippie generation. It's documentaries like this that help to put history in its proper context and there most certainly looks like there's more than enough context happening here. There is the footage that is allowed to speak for itself, the moments we get with author Ken Kesey, it's like watching home movies of people who were much cooler than you.

While the trailer is a little too polished, the film, which is also co-directed by Allison Ellwood (she also directed one of the best reality shows of all time, American High) looks like one of those stories about American society that has long since passed on as people passed through the civil rights movement and everything else that has made the idyllic days of The Merry Band of Pranksters a quaint remnant of a time that will never be.

While I can't say how riveting this documentary will be it is nonetheless Gibney's name which makes me believe this will be more than worth my attention. Outside of him and Ellwood, I'm not sure I'd give this a second thought.






Wu Xia Trailer



Yes!

What a good year it's been so far for Donnie Yen. Actually, it's been a good year for me seeing films with Donnie in them. Yeah, Legend of the Fist wasn't that hot but Donnie has been hitting the market fairly hard with his presence and it's been delightful.

This trailer may only be a minute long but it does establish a little bit of story and a whole lot of what to expect in terms of its wire-fu. There's a visual gimmick of seeing what happens when Donnie lays the smack down on guys who no doubt to deserve it but just seeing the man dish out the physical hurt on guys makes me dig this man even more and fear the day when Hollywood wants to put him alongside Chris Tucker in some dreadful Hollywood vehicle.

The action here is swift and mighty. Director Peter Chan's last, The Warlords, didn't do much for me but this, this looks like something I could really enjoy. I'm hoping for both his and Yen's sake that there's a movie here I can finally settle in and enjoy. [Twitch [1]]


Note bene: If you have any suggestions of trailers to possibly be included in this column, even have a trailer of your own to pitch, please let me know by sending me a note at Christopher_Stipp@yahoo.com

In case you missed them, here are the other trailers we covered at /Film this week:



Showrunners Trailer [2] - A great trailer that makes inside baseball easily understood.
Mr. Popper's Penguins Trailer [3] - Such a miserable trailer that it takes all I have to not point at this as an example of what could be Jim Carrey's nadir.
The River Trailer [4] - Not my thing but the trailer could play well to those looking for something a little different out of their televised entertainment.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon 3D Trailer [5]- Look, it may be warmed over pap but praise those with the talent to make me think that parting with my money to see this wouldn't be such a bad idea.
Green Lantern 3D Trailer [6] - I mean this in the best way possible: this trailer feels like something I would see before embarking on a spin through Space Mountain.
Conan O'Brien Can't Stop Trailer [7] - I think the best parts of this trailer are when we see Conan being brutally honest with us and himself. Why you would hide that behind the pandering wackiness is a little stupefying.
Homeland Trailer [8] - This looks about as interesting as a cooling bowl of oatmeal: ultimately satisfying but rather bland all by itself.
The Muppets Teaser Trailer [9] - I don't get why they felt the need to keep the farce up for as long as they did. Rather, the real audience for this, kids under ten, just want the felt puppets, not some crafty joke.
Take Shelter Trailer [10] - If this isn't your favorite trailer this week there is something wrong with your chemical makeup. Rock solid all the way around.
Salvation Boulevard Trailer [11] - Just doesn't do anything for me. The message is muddled about what it is they're selling and what's here just falls flat.
A Little Help Trailer [12] - A little too clever for its own good. I'm not inspired to see this as much as I am kind of annoyed by its tone.
The Smurfs Trailer #2 [13] - Just wither up and die already. Someday I predict this will be sold in a combo two pack in a discount bin with Hop right next to the Antonio Sabato Jr. collection.
Shark Night 3D Trailer [14] - This looks horrendous. The people who made this trailer do know that I can't see in 3D, right? It just seems like a waste of resources.
The Descendants Trailer [15] - I really like this trailer. A lot. I am hoping for a sweeping, dramatic explosion but I would be satisfied if it was just plain good.
Happy Feet Two Trailer [16] - I had such a virulently bad reaction to the first film that I can't see anything new of note in this trailer to make me think this will be any different.

POCO - CRAZY LOVE

Poco is an American country rock band originally formed by Richie Furay and Jim Messina following the demise of Buffalo Springfield in 1968.[1] The title of their first album, Pickin' Up The Pieces, is a reference to the break-up of the Springfield. Throughout the years Poco has performed in various groupings, with a version still active today. Really good band, thought I would share this song, has quite good meaning behind I thinks. Have a listen and enjoy!

Dept. of Defense and Homeland Security confirm Lockheed Martin hacker breach

Reuters has a followup to their scoop yesterday about an unspecified hacker attack involving Lockheed Martin, the world's biggest aerospace firm and the top US military supplier by sales: the DoD and the DHS are now involved, and confirm that a breach took place. As reported yesterday, the Lockheed intrusion may be linked to the RSA SecurID breach disclosed two months ago. Reuters reports today: The Department of Homeland Security said it and the Defense Department had offered to help gauge the scope of a "cyber incident impacting LMCO," as the maker of fighter jets, ships and other major weapons systems is known. The U.S. government also has offered to help analyze "available data in order to provide recommendations to mitigate further risk," Chris Ortman, a Homeland Security official, said in an e-mailed reply to a query from Reuters. It was not immediately clear what kind of data, if any, was stolen by the hackers. But military contractors' networks contain sensitive data on arms that are under development as well as technology used by U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. No word yet on whether other military contractors that also use RSA's SecurID system have experienced similar problems.  RSA SecurID breach linked to hacker attack on Lockheed Martin...

Activists' impromptu press conference at the EG8 conference

After Sarkozy's "EG8" conference last week -- an event that brought together government leaders and Internet execs to legitimize an effort to censor and surveil the net -- a group of civil society people and activists threw an impromptu press-conference to explain what Sarko and company missed by treating the net as simply an engine for big business. And so, yesterday, in Paris, civil society threw together an impromptu press conference, featuring Harvard's Larry Lessig, La Quadrature du Net's J�r�mie Zimmermann, CUNY's Jeff Jarvis, former ICANN board member/former White House advisor Susan Crawford, Reporters Without Borders' Jean-Fran�ois Julliard, and Harvard's Yochai Benkler.
