Damn it, Internet. I had things I needed to do this afternoon.
So much for that. A VHS recording of a 1984 Apple enthusiast meetup was recently rediscovered, and it had at least one very special gem tucked inside: footage of a 34-year old Steve Wozniak giving a speech on just about everything you’d want to see 34-year old Steve Wozniak talking about. Pranks. The decision to quit everything and start Apple. Changing the friggin’ world.
Today we’ve got our first vision of the next-generation tablet breaking away from the original Notion Ink Adam in one very blurry photo. This photo was taken by none other than the official Notion Ink team and posted to their twitter, appearing here to be a rather forward-thinking machine with little more than a white

Notion Ink has already revealed a few of the features its forthcoming Adam 2 tablet will have, and it’s now also confirmed something it won’t have: an HD (or higher res) screen like some of its competitors. In a post on the Designing Adam 2 blog, Notion Ink’s Rohan Shravan explained that the company did have the option of a 10-inch 1920 x 1200 display, but that would come either with a significant hit to battery life or some other compromises the company wasn’t willing to make (weight, size, charging time, etc). There’s still no word on what resolution the Adam 2′s screen will have. Shravan did add that a higher resolution screen is on the company’s roadmap, but that will apparently have to wait for some battery improvements that don’t also require a bigger battery.

Last month Adam owners got a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich after Notion Ink released an Alpha build, but if the limited functionality didn’t do it for you, how about an improved Beta version? The developers hope that HDMI video, functional GPS, better WiFi and a working compass will keep you happy while they iron out the remaining niggles, like non-functioning camera and microphone. If this sounds a bit more like it, you should be able to get your hands on it over the weekend. Hit the source link below for the deets.

Notion Ink’s teaming up with TI
in order to get at its OMAP4xx
silicon for the forthcoming Adam II tablet. It’ll also be jamming in the company’s Wi-Link 7.0
and Phoenix Audio gear onto the Ice Cream Sandwich-running slate. The chip was apparently chosen thanks to its modular setup, HD visuals and powerful low-energy multitasking. Novice owners will also get their hands on a modular software architecture which will let casual users develop specific applications using a drag-and-drop interface. It’s pitching that functionality at home-brewers, students and professionals who can tailor the software to meet a specific need, casually mentioning that it could be used for signal processing, 3D modeling or medical imaging. Do we hear expectations being raised to unrealistic levels again? Given our experiences with the original
, we suspect the answer is: “Yes.”

If you want a charm that hangs ’round your neck and glows whenever your friend Missy tells you she loves Justin Bieber
, then eMotion Inc has the gadget for you. The BFF Gemz sends pre-written coded messages to pals up to 450 feet away, which they can access the next time they’re at a computer. You can add up to eight best friends (the BFF currency devalued to Weimar
proportions) and four more if you buy some GPA: Girl Power Average points. It’s not entirely private: Mom and Pop will get a weekly email, listing who you’re messaging, so if you swap notes with that gal from the wrong end of town you’d better stick to paper airplanes. Those curious to see what the kids might
be clamoring for instead of a new cellphone, check out the video after the break.
