Konica Minolta Presents: LED Desk Lamp With Wireless Phone Charging

We love the design and wireless charging but not so much the price. Credit: Konica Minolta, CNET

Konica Minolta debuted a desk lamp with an ace up its sleeve: it features a built-in induction charging pad for devices that support the Qi wireless charging standard (such as the Nokia Lumia 920 and many other products). It appears to be the first of its kind.

As for other features, there isn't much to write home about: a built-in touch sensor enables the user to switch between four brightness settings -- all the way up to 1,400 lux.

The 1.5-foot-tall lamp comes in two colors: ivory and a very dark shade of blue. While the 24,800 yen ($302) LED lamp packs an aesthetic punch with its adherence to minimalism, its high cost will perhaps pinch too many pennies for some.

Google Maps Is Back On iOS6, Apple Is Relieved

You won't be lost anymore, iPhone users.
The app should be rolling out worldwide in the App Store now, available in over 40 countries and 29 languages. It's compatible with iOS 5.1 and above, but sadly it's not designed to work on the iPad. Google says that will come later. Graf also said that the goal is to maintain a parity between iOS and Android going forward — which hopefully means that a few Android-specific features will come to iOS and that the clean design of this app will make its way back to Android.

Compared to Apple's Maps app, Google Maps clearly wins on the data front, with complete mass transit directions and fewer of the accuracy issues that have plagued the built-in app. What's more intriguing is that Google Maps also matches (or beats, depending on your taste) Apple Maps in its speed, design, and overall aesthetics. It's the combination of massive and accurate data with a well-made app that makes Google's offering so compelling.

Google Maps for iOS is the best-designed maps app on any platform and challenges even Google Maps on Android for speed. That sounds like hyperbole, but on the iPhone 5 the new Google Maps app seems faster and is definitely better-designed than even Google Maps on Android. If Apple CEO Tim Cook is looking for examples of how to do a maps app right on the iPhone — or on any platform — Google has provided the answer.

What Is Green Monday?

The Newegg.com Green Monday sale banner.
Green Monday is an online retail industry term similar to Cyber Monday. The term was coined by eBay to describe its best sales day in December, traditionally the 2nd Monday of December. Green Monday is defined more specifically by business research organization comScore as the Monday with at least 10 days prior to Christmas. 

In 2009, $854 million was spent online in the US on Green Monday, with sales in 2011 reaching $1.133 billion. Green Monday in Greece and Cyprus is the movable feast day known elsewhere in the Greek Orthodox Church as Clean Monday, the first day of Lent - approximately seven weeks before Easter. Traditionally families go to fields to barbecue fasting foods such as vegetables and seafood (not meat), later flying kites and playing other games.

Now You Can Eat An iPhone Too! (aka iFong)


It appears that Apple’s iPhone have inspired cake-makers from a Taiwanese bakery. Just in case this is the first time you stumble across the word “pineapple cake” or heard of it and don’t understand it too much, the pineapple cake is actually Taiwan’s iconic pastry. The Taiwanese call the pineapple cake as “鳳梨酥”, or fengli su, and the name actually means ‘to bring wealth’. Pineapple cakes are probably more cookie than cake. It’s got a shortbread-like texture on the outside, and is filled with pineapple jam on the inside.

Move Over Google Maps, Amazon Maps Is (Almost) Here


If Amazon has its way, Google Maps on your Kindle Fire won't be the default option for much longer. Back in September, the online retail giant introduced a beta version of its Amazon Maps API to see if it could go the Apple route by fleshing out its own maps platform. Now it's ready to take the API out of beta after several months of testing and a lot of developer interest -- Hipmunk, Evernote, Trulia and Zillow have already integrated it into their Kindle Fire apps. 

The API currently features interactive maps and customized overlays, and is now a part of the Amazon Mobile App SDK. It's early days yet for the mapping service and we're sure it doesn't have the bells and whistles of the one from Mountain View, but this does mean a further step toward differentiation from the Big "G."

Let's just hope this turns out better than iOS6 Maps and no one comes to regret it.

Happy Thanksgiving 2012 + Our Black Friday Deals


From everyone here at Limewit Blog and Limewit.com we want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Some "food" for thought:

Regardless of How Full You Are, Here’s Why You Always Have Room for Pie


It’s a question I ask myself every Thanksgiving dinner as I sit clutching my stomach and moaning in cartoonish agony, “How did my body let me eat all that pumpkin pie, even though I was so incredibly full from that 4th helping of turkey and mashed potatoes?”

The answer involves an explanation of hormones called Ghrelin and Leptin, your brain, your stomach, some psychological nuances, and a whiteboard to illustrate what the hell is going on inside your body to the point that a 5-year-old would understand. Because let’s face it, even with a college education, I still like my science explained with a pinch of infancy.

Here’s why you still desire to eat when full, in essence, the entire science of appetite in a short 1:50 video:

Electric Vehicles More Polluting than Gas/Diesel Cars

Nissan Leaf. All electric vehicle at charging station.
Electric vehicle buyers have a new reason to feel conflicted about their forward-thinking purchases, thanks to a recent study which suggests EVs are potentially more polluting than their gas-powered counterparts.

According to The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the environmental ramifications of EVs from well to wheel are significant. The study took into account all factors along the lifecycle of an electric vehicle, from the toxic battery ingredients like nickel and copper to the energy sources which power the grids that ultimately charge the cars' batteries. "The global warming potential from electric vehicle production is about twice that of conventional vehicles," one part of the study concludes, indicating that energy developed from lignite, coal, or heavy oil combustion makes it "counterproductive to promote electric vehicles."

One part of the finding suggests that EVs driven in Europe have an environmental advantage over other global communities. "Electric vehicles powered by the present European electricity mix offer a 10 percent to 24 percent decrease in their global warming potential relative to conventional diesel or petrol vehicles," the study says. Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche echoed that sentiment. "According to our results, a battery electric vehicle, with electricity produced by the power generation mix we currently have in Europe, compares favorably in the magnitude of 10 percent or so with diesel," he told the BBC.

How To Avoid ATM Fraud

ATM machines are designed to give you money, as long as your checking account isn't $0,  but every now and then they can take your hard-earned cash. We're not talking about ATM usage or withdrawal fees but something even scarier: ATM fraud!

Jess Jiang (npr.org) was at the ATM last week, when she saw a technician checking on the machines. He told Jess he checks all the machines from 6pm to 9pm everyday, looking for anything suspicious.

So she had to ask him: What are some things I should check before dipping my debit card? 

Here's what to look out for:


And if you're arrested after being spotted trying to wiggle card reader & keypad, tell them NPR sent you. ;-)

Interesting Article About Sandy Exposing The Need For Electricity Storage Technology


Because of some previous plans, I had already planned to be offline most of this week. Which is really kind of lucky considering that I don't have any power, Internet, phone, mobile phone and questionable water at my home in Midland Park, New Jersey (way, way north near the New York border).

Thank you to those who have sent messages inquiring about my status - my family and friends managed to pull through relatively unscathed. We are very very fortunate. I even managed to get out of New Jersey for a trip to Denver, by driving four hours down to Baltimore to the airport there a few days after my original flight was supposed to depart. I felt very guilty about leaving, but my husband sent me packing so I could recharge my emotional batteries with a little singing therapy. That's a story for another day and another blog.

The first thing I did when I arrived was start looking at the news and the photos that you're all seeing - of the water-logged Jersey Shore, of Moonachie (where the levee broke at the hit of the storm and flooded much of the town), of sewage-flooded Hoboken, where I am hoping my friends have been evacuated, and of places like Breezy Point, Queens, where all those homes burned. Many of us in haven't see those reports yet. Maybe that's a good thing.

We all pretty much all expected to be without power ... for a few days. What we didn't expect was all the side effects of this particular storm. One that is turning out to be particularly challenging for people like my husband is the enormous demand for gasoline that has people lined up at all the pumps that are open. Many gas stations still are not because you need electricity for the pumps, obviously.

There are generators and chainsaws eating up that gasoline at an enormous rate. And it's not that easy to get more. Which makes it hard for my husband to keep clearing trees off people's houses. It's a vicious cycle.

The ripple effect is mind-boggling. It's one big reason that cell phones have been really compromised in the region - you need it to power the towers and the substations that haven't been damaged or flooded. But with the power not expected to be on for maybe two weeks more (if we're lucky), should you conserve that gasoline for phones or for things like pumping water to houses or to run generators to keep refrigerators and furnaces running as the weather turns colder?

I got to thinking about all this on the plane yesterday, because I actually had a hard copy of a press release about energy storage that I was considering for a post. I printed a bunch of them on Monday, just in case.

It leapt to the top of my pile when I started thinking about all the batteries that are being eaten up in New Jersey.

Right now, the market for energy storage is pretty nascent, but a new report from Pike Research anticipates that it will grow to $30 billion annually by 2022 - spurred by advances in pumped storage, compressed air energy and advanced batteries. The total capacity of energy storage systems worldwide by that time would be about 56,000 megawatts, according to the report.

"One of the key challenges for energy storage will be to deliver cost-effective solutions for these grid stability issues," said Pike Research analyst Anissa Dehamna. "Market structures still must catch up with the market to acknowledge the value of energy storage to grid operators and power consumers. At the same time, the industry must solve issues around business models and the supply chain in order to successfully scale up and fully commercialize these emerging technologies."

I've written previously about the role that energy storage is playing in new on-site generation systems using renewable technology such as solar and wind. Places like California are increasingly requiring storage as part of project proposals. In places like New Jersey, where the sun is finally shining, this could be incredibly useful. You could, in theory, distribute storage throughout neighborhoods so in the event of a major storm, people would still be able to function for a while. And the water companies could keep pumping water, which is probably the most major concern for my area right now.

In my mind there is much to be gained by investing in energy storage regardless of whether or not it is tied to the grid.

It is pretty obvious that the load we place on an antiquated grid is heavier than it can manage, and it is only going to get worse.

Right now, our current back-up plan is to run generators that cough up plenty of pollutants. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is giving New Jersey a break on its clean air rules in order to cope with the storm's aftermath, but isn't it time that we started thinking about better alternatives?

This particular Jersey girl is sending waves of love back to her home state, where so many lives have been altered. How many more lessons like this do we need to start reconsidering some of our vital infrastructure?

A CD That Transforms Into a Mouse? Yup.

Is your CD-ROM drive sitting empty on that laptop of yours? Probably. Now you can fill your CD-ROM drive with this foldable, flat-pack mouse if it was more than just a concept for the 2012 iF Design competition by designer Taewon Hwang, but it's clever enough that we're comfortable blowing some of our imagination juice on it. 

When unfolded, the mouse is flat and round and matches the size and shape of a CD, which means that you can store it inside your computer when you're not using it. When you need a mouse, just pop it out and fold it up, and you've got what looks to be a tolerably comfortable two-button mouse with touch buttons and a scroll wheel. Also, when folded, it kind of reminds me of a 5.25" floppy. No, that's not a euphemism, kids. Get off my lawn.


Stealthy. This is something The Batman would use.

Intel Wants To Increase Your Tablets Battery Life


One of Intel's goals with Haswell, the CPU architecture that is slated to replace the current Ivy Bridge processors next year, is to get the CPUs into more tablets. Ivy Bridge processors will appear in some Windows 8 tablets (like Acer's Iconia W700) this year, but tablets running Haswell chips should be thinner and lighter and, most importantly, get better battery life. AnandTech's analysis of the new architecture sheds some light on just how Intel plans to get its high-end tablets to use less power.

Many of the methods being used to lower Haswell's power consumption are pretty conventional, and we touched on them a bit in our overview of the architecture: more power gating means that the CPU can turn off more parts of itself if they're not being used, and the Haswell platform can also transition between these different power states more quickly than could Ivy Bridge. The new S0ix system power states will also lower power consumption—these "active idle" states will allow the tablets to consume less power during light use like web browsing or checking e-mail, and they'll also enable the tablets to come out of sleep mode more quickly.

The most interesting part of the AnandTech piece isn't about how Intel will be reducing power usage in its own chips, but in how it will exert its reach over third-parties to lower power consumption of other non-Intel system components like voltage regulators and motherboard micro-controllers Intel wants to recommend not just specific components, but also things like component firmware versions, all in the name of saving power.

Intel even wants to dictate the components in displays—it wants manufacturers to begin putting small amounts of RAM into their display panels to make them capable of storing static images. That way, if a user is reading a document or Web page but not interacting with anything on the screen, the computer could display a static image of the screen rather than continuously refreshing it for no reason.

None of the Haswell platform's power management tweaks amount to huge savings by themselves, but taken together they add up to much improved potential battery life—if not comparable to ARM, then at least within spitting distance. The downside is that, to achieve the best results, Intel goes beyond the processor itself and begins dictating which components third-party manufacturers should and shouldn't use. This may maximize battery life, but if Intel succeeds in making serious inroads against ARM in the next few years, it puts a worrisome amount of control to put in the hands of a single company.

eBay's New Logo : Good or Bad?



EBay Inc executive Devin Wenig unveiled a new logo on Thursday, a re-design he said reflected a shift by the online marketplace away from auctions and collectibles toward full-priced, buy-it-now merchandise.

The new logo keeps eBay's famous colors, red, blue, yellow and green, but the letters are thinner and arranged inline, rather than the previous, slightly jumbled approach.

The new design will be rolled out across the company's websites this fall.

"The eBay logo is known the world over, so changing it was not a decision made lightly. The time felt right," Wenig, president of eBay Global Marketplaces, wrote in an email to employees.

What do you think of their new logo?

New Battery Can Charge 120 Times Faster

The Chevy Volt
A group of Korean scientists, working at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), have developed a fast-charge lithium-ion battery that can be recharged 30 to 120 times faster than conventional li-ion batteries. The team believes it can build a battery pack for electric vehicles that can be fully charged in less than a minute.

One of the main issues with rechargeable batteries is that they take longer to recharge as their physical volume grows. When you recharge a battery, it charges from the outside in — so the larger the battery, the longer it takes. You can somewhat avoid this by breaking larger batteries into smaller individual cells, but that technique only gets you so far.

The Korean method takes the cathode material — standard lithium manganese oxide (LMO) in this case — and soaks it in a solution containing graphite. Then, by carbonizing the graphite-soaked LMO, the graphite turns into a dense network of conductive traces that run throughout the cathode. This new cathode is then packaged normally, with an electrolyte and graphite anode, to create the fast-charging li-ion battery. Other factors, such as the battery’s energy density and cycle life seem to remain unchanged.


These networks of carbonized graphite effectively act like blood vessels, allowing every part of the battery to recharge at the same time — thus speeding up recharge by 30 to 120 times.

Now, for all intents and purposes, this is a standard lithium-ion battery that could be used in smartphones and laptops — but the network of conductive traces does increase the overall size of the battery, so it’s probably better suited for use in electric vehicles (EVs). Obviously, an EV that can be recharged in under a minute is pretty crazy — though it still only brings them in-line with their gas-guzzling cousins. Being able to charge quickly is convenient, but it doesn't get around the fact that li-ion battery packs are incredibly expensive — and the Korean carbonized LMO battery certainly won’t be cheap.

I could see fast-charge batteries as being a nice option for smartphone and laptop users, though: You could have a normal battery and a fast-charge battery, and switch in whichever one makes most sense for your daily routine. Fast-charge batteries could be convenient in wireless mice and keyboards, and other gizmos, too.

Are Cheap Batteries Worth The Money?


Someday, you may be able to go a year between cellphone charges. Someday, we may finally get those flying cars we were promised, too.

In the meantime, we have to live with the technology we have. When it comes to replaceable batteries, you pretty much get what you pay for. Most cheap batteries die a lot sooner than their more expensive counterparts, pretty much defining the phrase "false economy." In other words, you'll pay less in the long run if you invest in quality.

At $6 a pop, the Energizer Ultimate AA lithium battery may seem wildly indulgent. But in Consumer Reports' tests in a camera, this battery took 1,286 shots before dying, at a cost per 50 shots of 23 cents. Compare that with the 50-cent Kirkland Signature battery, which fired off just 172 shots (29 cents per 50 shots) or the $2.50 WalMart SuperCell at 133 shots (a whopping 94 cents per 50 shots).

Similarly, at $59.49, the Dell Inspiron® for models 15, 1525, 1526, and 1545 Laptop Battery (High capacity also available for $67.99) may seem like a stretch but when you compare it to a cheaper battery, the differences in performance and product quality are evident. Cheap batteries for the same model go for $7.60 from SIB on Amazon. But with customer feedback like this:
  • "For the first 3 weeks of having it, the battery would only charge to 45% and stop!" 
  • "Bought this product and it didn't work....Holds no charge."
  • "Battery stopped working after 10 months of use." 
The hassles of returns, the waiting, the searching and browsing all over again, and loss of productivity are just not worth it.

Lexmark Exiting The Printing Business


On August 28, 2012, Lexmark announced restructuring actions which included the exiting of the development and manufacturing of the company's remaining inkjet hardware. Overall, the total pre-tax cost of eliminating the division is likely to be $160 million through 2015, Lexmark said. Despite this decision, Lexmark will continue to provide service, support and aftermarket supplies for its inkjet installed base.

"Today's announcement represents difficult decisions, which are necessary to drive improved profitability and significant savings," said Paul Rooke, Lexmark chairman and chief executive officer. "Our investments are focused on higher value imaging and software solutions, and we believe the synergies between imaging and the emerging software elements of our business will continue to drive growth across the organization.

By the end of 2012, Grasso said, Lexmark expects to employ about 2,300 people in Lexington (Lexmark's main facilities in the US), down from about 3,000 before the cuts. An additional 1,100-plus employees worldwide also will be affected, with a plant in the Philippines closing by 2015. The company is attempting to sell the inkjet division and its approximately 1,000 patents.

"So we think we're in good shape," Grasso said. "Technology evolves. There just wasn't the return on investment that we needed. We think inkjet is still viable, just not for us."
