Tech Monday is a feature in our local The Austin American Statesman, it is a weekly featured section about the TECH ideas, innovation and other news you can use for our large Techno Field. Austin has become Silicon Hills, not quite riveling but with a strong presence to Silicon Valley in California.
Todays Tech Monday feature was about your laptop and pc new features.. the trend in the computer industry is now to make users feel good about their computers. The feeling when you get into a nice new car feeling, without the new car smell. Although that maybe just around the corner.
Some of the features are ..... drum roll pleassssseeee. Veriface software which combines with hardward to make the user's face his/her password.. Sounds cool but what if I change my haircolor, my hairstyle? Or will it be bone structure.. unanswered questions to me at this time.
The next new feature is Gateways P-Series FX the multimedia keys are just above the standard keyboard.
Not to be outdone, Dell has a "proximity feature" which lights up the buttons when only the user's hand is nearby.. now that I could use.
The color laptop is becoming more and more popular so its just a matter of time before we are all sporting our most favorite color of blues or greens or for those real daring souls purples and orange.
New features on an automobile are fun so I'm sure we will all be looking for the latest, newest and greatest in our laptops soon.
