Sharp LL-151-3D

The new LL-151-3D provides a new way to view 3D images without the hassle of special 3D glasses. The display acts as an LCD monitor, which, at the touch of a button, will switch into 3D mode, allowing software programs designed to display graphics in 3D to become much more immersive. The LL-151-3D cannot translate 2D images into 3D on its own, but requires special software for this operation to work.

Microsoft

The bad news: The update is 80 megs large. The good news: It will help protect your system from cyber-attacks by installing a built in firewall, among other things. Microsoft plans to use the improvements found in Service Pack 2 on future iterations of the Windows platform. They're also urging users to turn on the automatic update function on their systems, so that current and future updates may be slowly downloaded with minimal disruption to your normal computer activities.

Fresh2 Bulb Review
When I started the Gear Live site, I was excited to bring the latest technology news to our readers, and that meant reviews of the hottest gear. But I never thought I would be doing this. You see, I have been testing what, in all honesty, is just a great peice of technology. It isn't an MP3 player, cell phone, or even a high tech cooling device. Nope - this is a light bulb.

Playstation 3 PS3 Blu-Ray DiscBack to the next generation format wars, Sony has made it known that the PlayStation 3 will officially support the Blu-Ray disc format. What exactly does this mean? For starters, this gives Blu-Ray its own major corporate contender supporting it. This is good press for Blu-Ray, especially after Microsoft announced HD DVD capabilities will be natively supported in Windows Longhorn.

Archos GMini 400
On the heels of our Archos GMini 200 review, the new (and seemingly much improved) Gmini 400 has been revealed for the first time. This time the digital audio player features a full color LCD screen - a much welcomed addition when compared to the grayscale screen of the previous model. In addition, the GMini 400 will also play video, displayed on its 2.2 inch LCD. Finally, the player will also display images. Obviously, Archos is coming in hard with this player. I would expect this one to be the one to watch, provided the advertising is there.
