BioDigital Human Explores Human Body Like Google Earth Explores Earth

We all are used to Google Earth’s interactive 3D experience to explore our planet Earth. In the same way, now BioDigital Human lets us navigate the internals of a human body in full-color and in 3D. To the common man, understanding how our body functions is critical to understand a new diagnosis or treatment method. The textual medical reference can’t be very helpful. So, BioDigital has developed the BioDigital Human on top of NVIDIA’s GPUs to let the user explore intricate details of human anatomy, so that users can see the body’s systems work in real time – be it pumping of the heart or expanding and contracting of lungs.

Live shots of the Sony Xperia LT29i surface, looks impressive

So far, we just have spy shots and mock ups of what the Xperia LT29i would look like once it actually hit the streets.

Lucky for us, ePrice managed to get their hands on an engineering sample of the Hayabusa and have done quite an in-depth preview of the device, which includes some nice sample shots from the 13MP camera.

Google to replace Gmail video chat with Google+ Hangouts

Google's mailing service, Gmail, has received a series of updates this year.

Google had brought the video chat feature to Gmail in 2008 and has been an important part of the mailing service since then. “Unlike the old video chat, which was based on peer-to-peer technology, Hangouts utilise the power of Google’s network to deliver higher reliability and enhanced quality,” says the Google team in a blog post.

"Wat up wit u": Yep, Texting Is Killing Students' Grammar Skills

"Wat up wit u mom I luv u" says the most recent text from my 11-year-old son. His shorthand, of course, translates to, "What’s up with you, mom? I love you." Like many of us when we text, he isn't taking the time to type out the whole sentence. Every day he and his tween peers zip a dozen similar shorthand text messages back and forth to each other. According to a new study in the journal New Media and Society, the use of these ubiquitous texting shortcuts is negatively altering their ability to identify and use correct grammar.

Apple to unveil iPhone 5, iPad mini on September 12 ?

If this rumor proves to be true, this could be one of the biggest pieces of tech news for this entire year.

Quoting “sources who have proven to be accurate in the past”, tech site iMore said, “Apple is planning to debut the new iPhone at a special event on Wednesday, 12 September 2012, with the release date to follow 9 days later on Friday, 21 September.”

Speculation that Apple will release an iPad mini has been refusing to die down, and this latest piece of news is bound to hit the rumor mills even harder. However it was widely expected that both devices would be launched in October. If both do exist however, it would most probably make sense for Apple to launch them earlier, especially as the company blamed its disappointing Q3 results on hype around the iPhone 5.

Samsung 11.8 inch Retina Display tablet revealed in Court Documents

Court documents made public in the epic Apple v. Samsung trial that kicked off in California today reveal that Samsung is working on a tablet codenamed "P10" that would include LTE connectivity and an 11.8-inch display at 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) resolution. With the new iPad, Apple has pushed the issue of so-called Retina displays in the tablet form factor — and it's no surprise that Samsung, one of the world's largest suppliers of LCDs and AMOLEDs — would be pushing for a screen to match in its own Galaxy line as quickly as possible. Though 11.8 inches might be on the hairy edge for tablet portability, the P10 would still qualify as a Retina-like device with a pixel density of 256 ppi.
