A lot of phones have built-in unit converters, but the iPhone doesn't. So this handy little app comes to the rescue to help you convert one unit of measurement to another. The layout is pretty straightforward, and it's easy to use.
It's already been a week since we eagerly anticipated the clock striking 6 p.m. for the sale of the very hyped iPhone. The speculation of what will happen is over, and by now most people are well over the hype. Some may be envious of others' iPhones, and some may be trying to sell an iPhone for a profit.
In case you haven't seen the iPhone or are interested in learning more about it, we've got a slew of galleries, as well as some pictures of the Sanyo SCP-3200, the General Electric G1 camera, and the … Read more

Dell confirmed Friday that it will sell a tablet PC before the end of year.
Jeff Clarke, senior vice president and general manager of Dell's business product group, made the announcement in a short video posted to the company's Direct2Dell blog.
"I'm here to end much speculation in the industry about our plans in the tablet marketplace," says a casually attired Clarke, while holding the tablet. The device will be a Latitude tablet PC designed specifically for the education, health care and corporate markets, he said.
On the video, Clarke gives a brief demo and … Read more
A PC with a twisty screen you can write on almost always=cool, and Thursday Gateway will release its latest take on the concept with the E-155C Thin & Light Convertible Notebook.
This one is aimed at students. The E-155C looks like a notebook, but works like a tablet PC with digital pen and touchscreen capability, with a screen that swivels 180 degrees in both directions. It has a 12-inch wide screen, Core 2 Duo processor, biometric fingerprint reader for security, and an alarm and flashing LED light should someone try to break in. All of this weighs in at … Read more
Yeah, there's still no video standard among portable devices. But ADS Tech is trying to help us all out with the Instant Video To-Go ($79.95), the first "self-contained, hardware-based video-content conversion solution for consumers." In English, that translates to a small device that converts video content for your iPod, PSP, and so on. It connects to any PC via the integrated USB 2.0 plug and can crush a 100-minute (roughly 2GB) MPEG-2 or VOB file down into a manageable QVGA H.264 video in a mere 20 minutes. Eliminate overnight encoding jobs for less than … Read more
Mercedes-Benz has just released new concept photos of their S600 flagship sedan in convertible form, which could become the company's first big convertible sedan since the '50s.
The S Class has always been a technology tour de force, and this convertible concept reportedly adds one more neat trick: The "AirScarf" is a system of vents in the headrests that circulate warm air around the nape of your neck for comfortable top down jaunts during the colder months.
This S600 ragtop concept looks very much like a production car, and when automakers circulate concepts that look this real, … Read more
We were expecting to see a convertible version of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring here today at the LA Auto Show; what surprised us was the kind of drop-top that was unveiled. In additon to a soft-top convertible, Chrysler showed off the 2008 Sebring with a power-retractable hard top, following the recent trend among automakers to offer an alternative to tradional ragtops.
Like that of the Volvo C70 that we reviewed recently, the Sebring's roof folds away in an elaborate process of interleaving panels, with the whole process taking less than 30 seconds from start to finish. Chrysler claims that … Read more
Computer and electronics makers seem determined to force their products to fold up, even it it means creating the high-tech equivalent of a genetic mutant. Fujitsu is no exception, and it has a folding mini-laptop that's getting a lot of exposure--even though it has yet to leave its mad scientist's laboratory.
T3 recently got a first-hand look at the laptop and even managed to shoot some video, which is making the rounds on YouTube (see below). It seems to have been love at first sight for the U.K. magazine: "Toting extra keys inside for gaming, the … Read more
Though perhaps not a total video solution, Total Video Converter does support a wealth of audio and video formats, including 3GP, PSP, AVI, MOV, and SWF. On top of that, it can rip DVDs and cut movies into smaller, more manageable fragments. In our testing, we appreciated the program's conversion speed and quality. Total Video Converter is well-suited for batch conversion. We found the interface straightforward, with one minor exception: the cumbersome Select Format dialog. Unfortunately, none of these features come for free: in addition to the 15-day restriction, the trial version stamps movies with a registration reminder. The $… Read more
