Android apps are now available on Chrome OS beta channel, still limited to three devices

Android apps arrived on Chromebooks with Chrome OS 53 in June, but as we noted during our initial hands-on, the developer channel was still quite buggy and not recommended for use as a daily driver.

阿波羅 11 號的源代碼現在可到 GitHub 查看了

來看看當年用於登月的軟體吧!<p>協助人類歷史邁出一大步的登月器阿波羅 11 號,到底它的制導電腦所用的軟體是怎麼樣呢?這曾經由 Google 保管的源代碼,前 NASA 實習生 Chris Garry 張貼在 GitHub 上公開予所有人,讓公眾都可以得知 NASA 編寫的登月制導程式是如何的。先不論代碼的優劣,但 Reddit 使用者就指編程員是個幽默的人,因為源代碼線的第 666 行藏著「numero mysterioso(神秘代號)」的彩蛋,而且還有為「burn, baby, burn」的代碼下了一整段的引用來源呢。<p>有趣的是,根據 Quartz 的說法,編程員更可以為這 GitHub 貼文提 …

802.11ac wave 2 規範發佈,速度最快可提升達一倍

而且說不定你的路由器升級一下就可以支援了<p>真正的下一代 Wi-Fi 系統 802.11ax 目前還在初步技術驗證的階段,距離商用化估計至少還有三年以上的時間,所以 2014 年發佈的 802.11ac 規範還要再當頂梁柱一段不短的時間。不過,這不表示 802.11ac 的技術就在原地停滯不前,繼已經面世約兩年半的 802.11ac wave 1 之後,Wi-Fi Alliance 正式推出了「更新版」的 802.11ac wave 2 標準,在不做大幅度變更的前提下,提升 802.11ac 的效能。<p>和 wave 1 相比,802.11ac wave 2 主要的變更是加入了 MU-MIMO(多使用 …

華碩這款支援 Android 的 CD 播放器概念機,將很快成為現實

在這次 Computex 的展區中,華碩特別將幾個比較影音相關的概念產品放在了一起,其中最吸引小編目光的是這款看似老唱片播放器的 ASUS ZenDrive。說穿了,這款產品只是在設計下了一點巧思,將 CD 的收納盒置放在了支援可永久保存的 M-DISC 光碟的 DVD 燒錄 / 播放器之上(底部側面有個抽出式的光碟機),但配合充滿木頭質感的外殼,就讓它看起來彷彿是一款充滿復古情懷的老唱片播放器。<p>雖說這樣一看,好像覺得 ZenDrive 似乎沒什麼特別的,不過其實它還提供了可以透過實體線接上 Android 裝置聆聽音樂讀取資料的功能(Windows 與 Mac 的支援當然是必備的)。所以如果 …

Synology DS416play 與 DS916+ 登場

除了新一代的無線路由器之外,Synology 也沒有忘記自己的老本行,為 NAS 產品帶來了兩款新品,分別是較為專注娛樂用途的 DS416play 以及具備更強運算能力 DS916+。具備有 2GB / 8GB RAM 雙版本的 DS916+,其實在月中的時候就已經發布了,由其 NT$17,999(2GB)/ NT$20,999(8GB)的售價應該不難發現,這款產品是為了較專業的用戶與企業而來的 NAS 伺服器,採用 2.56GHz 的 Intel Pentium N3710 四核心處理器、USB 3.0 x 3、eSATA x 1 與兩個 1GbE 的網路孔 -- 是的,支援 Link Ag …

主打設計感,ASUS Designo Curve 薄邊框曲面螢幕動眼看

在年初的 CES 時 ASUS 端出了一台型號未明的曲面螢幕,實在耐人尋味。但在 Computex 展場上,ASUS 又端出了一款外型和規格都十分相似,但被正名的 ASUS Designo Curve MX34VQ。我們來看看它是有什麼特點要在展前活動中特意加入一句話來介紹。<p>Gallery: ASUS Designo Curve MX34VQ | 6 Photos<p>6<p>MX34VQ 用上了 34 吋 3,440 x 1,440 的超闊螢幕比例,並有 1,800R 的弧度,讓使用者更能浸沉其中。而名字中的 Designo 就是指其外觀設計,流線型的底座配上薄邊框。底座中央被透明部份圈起來的是 Qi …

Apple 的新款 5K 顯示器可能會搭載顯示卡

Apple 旗下的 Thunderbolt Display 顯示器,真的已經很久沒有更新了。那既然如此,再出手時 Apple 會不會準備點特別的「招數」?現在 9to5Mac 就從自己的線人那裡,找到了一個可能的答案。據稱下一代的 5K 螢幕,將會內建有專門的顯示卡。換句話說,就算你用的不是高階電腦,顯示器也照樣能被推動。因為當 Mac 內的顯示卡不夠力時,系統就會自動切換到螢幕自帶的 GPU,保證內容正常顯示。<p>更多的細節暫時還不清楚,但消息來源估計這款新品會用到 Thunderbolt 3(基於 USB Type-C 插口),而且它會跟現有的 5K iMac 螢幕「十分相似」,能提供電影級別 …

Sorama 是部可以讓你「看見聲音」的麥克風陣列攝影機

像熱感應相機一樣可以顯示出聲音的相機其實我們並非首次見到,不過畫面上這部來自荷蘭新創團隊之手的 Sorama,卻是個相當輕巧且可透過陣列加大偵測範圍的聲音相機 -- 事實上,該團隊還號稱嘗試造出世界最大的麥克風陣列。他們製作這樣裝置的初衷,是希望可以幫助使用者找到噪音的來源位置,現階段則是已經與 Cooler Master 進行相關的合作。這次他們在 Computex 所展出的相機,看起來就像個被關在柵欄之中的相機(還是機板?),不過這個柵欄之上其實嵌入了共 64 個麥克風。<p>根據官方的說法,這個小小的相機模組將可偵測 100m 內的聲音,而小編在現場試用的結果,是退到了約 10 公尺遠也是可以 …

試玩 Wooting One 類比機械鍵盤

前幾天剛在 Kickstarter 開始集資的 Wooting One 類比機械鍵盤,是我們近來看過極少數真的能改變使用者與鍵盤之間的互動方式的新技術。什麼叫「類比」呢?原來 Wooting One 的鍵盤按鍵不單單只是有一個觸發點,而是在一定的範圍內,它可以感應你按下的「用力度」,並且把這個呈現在電腦、遊戲使用。所以舉例來說,當你在玩賽車遊戲的時候,油門就不再只有「全開」(按鍵按下)和「全關」(按鍵放開)兩種狀態,而是可以取決於按鍵按下的深度,有不同的油門開度。<p>Wooting One 能做到類比輸出的祕密,在於它使用的 Flaretech 光學機械軸。這個由台灣廠商 Adomax(亞土科技) …
