The private spaceflight company SpaceX successfully test fired the rocket that will launch the first-ever commercial space capsule to the International Space Station today (April 30), after a slight delay that was caused by an apparent computer glitch.
Three’s the magic number, and the third time is the charm so, this triple confirmation of release date gossip’s got us thinking an Android avalanche is on its Big Red way. We’ve seen November 10th bandied about as the day Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich flagship Galaxy Nexus and HTC’s awkwardly monikered Rezound would hit Verizon’s shelves. Now, this latest leak over on Android Central appears to set that date in stone and give us potential $ 299 on contract pricing for both handsets. Alas, eager beavers hoping to get their hands on Motorola’s just unveiled Droid RAZR are in luck, as this chart outs an earlier October 27th date for the device. These launch windows could easily slip and slide further into the end of year, so take all this talk with the usual dose of skep. At least we now have the consolation prize of knowing a vanilla Android experience is officially headed back to VZW’s chunk of radio waves.
We all love RED — the company puts out some of the best pro-quality digital video cameras on the market. But, what about the other side of that equation? All of that 4K footage is worthless without something to watch it on. CEO Jim Jannard, notorious for his ability to build hype and mystery, took to the REDUser Forums to tease some details about an upcoming 4K, 3D laser projection system that will be targeted at both homes (presumably well off ones) and theaters. Details about the projector are still scarce, but we do know it won’t be using TI’s 4K DLP chip, and that it will rely on passive 3D tech rather than active, which Jannard said “landed in the La Brea Tar Pits.” The image is apparently so bright and clear that it left Stephen Pizzo, co-founder Element Technica, “speechless.” We just have one question: when can we expect our review unit?
