Into science fiction,Samsung just took another step. S. Korea has just granted the tech giant Samsung a patent for contact lenses with a display(Camera) that can project images straight into the user’s eye. The news comes from a Samsung-centric blog SamMobile Working Strategies:Lenses are equipped with a built-in camera and sensors that can be controlled simply by blinking. Content is sent to your smartphone through embedded antennas. This is where the data is processed. It expected and seems that Samsung is developing the smart contact lenses as an alternative to creating improved augmented reality experiences over the current crop of wearables,:Reported by SamMobile. With contact lenses instead of glasses, users will be able to enjoy augmented reality content more discreetly. Blinking to control an ocular interface may lead to a lot of awkward situations and accidental input, but it’s not entirely unrealistic.Grateful and Thankfully, there’s always the option of controlling the interface through your smartphone.

Most important spec of all is "build quality, service, support". I am willing to pay for that quality!I have nothing against large PC companies, HP, Dell, Lenovo, Sony, etc. That said, it seems very difficult to get close to what I'm looking for from these main suppliers. I live in the US but discovered in my research, small PC builders, they seem to cater to gamers, hi end business machines, but some will work with someone like me. Some were even in the UK and seemed to be well thought of and some even seemed competitive in price, even with shipping. A question is, is it silly for me to consider looking at these small builders, I might be incorrect in thinking that these smaller shops might take quality/service/support as more important, then say a multinational corp. I'm open to any and all suggestions, directions, opinions. Anybody who has weighed through this long winded request and wants to comment, hey, feel free, I'll be happy to hear any thing you all have to say. General Specs. 1) What is your budget? Up to $1500 2) What size notebook would you prefer? e. Desktop Replacement; 17"+ screen 3) Where will you buying this notebook? US if possible UK if necessary4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?N/A5) Would you consider laptops that are refurbished/redistributed?Yes6) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?Watching/streaming videos, uTube, TV...Web surfing...Email...letter writing7) Will you be taking the notebook with you to different places, leaving it on your desk or both?Notebook will travel but will be plugged in most of the time, no matter where it is.8) Will you be playing games on your notebook? If so, please state which games or types of games?No games.9) How many hours of battery life do you need?Machine will rarely run on battery longer than 1 hour.10) Would you prefer to see the notebooks you're considering before purchasing it or buying a notebook on-line without seeing it is OK?I do not need to physically see/touch machine before buying.11) What OS do you prefer? Windows (Windows 7 / 8), Mac OS, Linux, etc.I'm hoping to buy PC with Win 10 installed, hopefully without bloatware/crapware, a clean install.Screen Specifics17.312) What screen resolution would you prefer? Text should be big and east to read, very good resolution a must. Something like a 1920x1080 display would be fine.13) Do you want a Glossy/reflective screen or a Matte/non-glossy screen?No preference, open to suggestions. Build Quality and DesignBuild quality is most important also warranty, support (Will pay for quality)14) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you?No15) When are you buying this laptop?Right away, if my old one dies, or end of July, when Win 10 is available, I have Win 7 now and I am eligible for the upgrade to Win 10, either as OE or when Win 10 media is available.16) How long do you want this laptop to last?As long as my old one, 5+ yearsNotebook ComponentsCPU, a decent dual core or a lower end Core i3-5-7 processor core may be a better choice down the road. GPU, any Intel IGP should do, or a lower end dedicated chip.RAM: 12GB sounds good, open to suggestions.Networking: A good Intel or Atheros chip will do the trick quite well. plus Blue Tooth.Extras Card readers, fingerprint stuff, docking station. not important. Connections for USB 2 and 3, MDMI, ethernet, yes important.Battery, What ever battery comes with this PC will be hard pressed to keep up with a 17" display, as stated above, unit will be plugged in most of the time.Thank you for any help, direction or suggestions.

Yo guys, I have a rig for those looking for a massive gaming PC under 100K, you can overlock it and can run most games under 'Ultra' settings or if not then definitely under 'High' settings and it might perform better than your 150K Alienware, so here go: CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Corsair H55 57.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Motherboard: MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition ATX LGA1150 Motherboard RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 960 2GB Video Card Cabinet: NZXT Source 530 ATX Full Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer OS: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit (OEM) (64-bit) Wired Network Adapter: TP-Link TG-3468 10/100/1000 Mbps PCI-Express x1 Network Adapter Wireless Network Adapter: Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I 802.11a/b/g/n/ac PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter Case Fan: Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition 67.8 CFM 140mm Fan Monitor: LG 22MP55HQ-P 60Hz 22.0" Monitor Keyboard & Keyboard Bundle: Cooler Master CM Storm Devastator Gaming Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse Headphones: Logitech G430 7.1 Channel Headset Speakers: Logitech Z313 25W 2.1ch Speakers Grand total: $1380.23 (Rs. 87875.72 at the time of poating this thread) And what's the good thing? The good thing is that now you don't need anything else to complete the build and you can play games on it as soon as you build it, this contains everything and the build is very flexible too! See the build price and buy it if you like: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/XXF7BmAnd the same build with Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($1493.79 or Rs. 95199.16 at the time of posting this): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qPhCcfNote: You have to buy the build from Amazon.com (Well, it ships to India) because some parts weren't available in Indian online stores so, yeah, that's it, enjoy and show off in front of your friends with such an affordable price (Well, only for some hardcore and rich gaming fans)

I want to buy IdeaPad U430 laptop in US. This is not yet launched in India and hence warranty is not covered in India. Want to take advise of experts whether I should go ahead and purchase this laptop or not. I learned from Lenovo service personnel that if this series of laptop launched in India in future then warranty will get covered in India as well. If not then I need to send it to US for any service. Please advise if this is a good option to buy. Do you have any idea when it will going to launched in India?

AMD seems to have slowly let out rumoured launch dates and prices on its new series of cards that are supposedly better that the GTX 9xx series! The fact that these new cards come with HBM over GDDR5 is something that sounds amazing! Can't wait to see some real benchmarks!

Does this config sound about right? Intel Core i5 4440 - 11550 Sapphire r9 280x - 20943 Gigabyte B85M-D3H* - 5171 (BTW does it support only amd cards? crossfire to be specific.) Corsair Vengeance 8GB - 6599 Corsair VS Series VS650 - 4118 Antec X1-E - 3700 (Other recommendations?) LG 22" Led IPS - 9195 Western Digital 2 TB - 5283 APC 1100VA - 6789 (Too much?) Razer Vengeance -3448 (only for rpg/rts i use game pads for other games)
