    Microsoft'e new mouse

    Microsoft lays claim to the most advanced tracking technology in the world (for mice, at least), the Microsoft BlueTrack Technology. What’s so special about this, you ask? Well, it enables consumers to take use their mice just about anywhere they like without worrying about the type of surface. This makes me remember of the good old days when owning a mousepad factory was still profitable - optical and laser technology have since advanced pretty far, although laser still doesn’t do glass. This is where BlueTrack comes in handy - it offers the precision of laser tracking on just about any surface, ranging from a granite kitchen countertop to the living room carpet. As to why you’re mousing on either surface

    Lumix DMC-G1 is the world’s smallest D-SLR

    Most of you already know that I am always instantly skeptical whenever some new product comes out saying that it is the world’s smallest or lightest, and Panasonic says that the Lumix DMC-G1 is both the smallest and lightest D-SLR.

    So how small and light is the Lumix DMC-G1? For starters, the camera itself is based on a new Micro Four Thirds System standard, which completely removes the need for an internal mirror structure. Not only does this new system standard reduce the camera’s size by half, its decreases the weight of the Lumix DMC-G1 to 385 grams.

    The DMC-G1 is a 12.1 megapixel camera that has several other features including Intelligent Exposure, Mega O.I.S., Intelligent Scene Selector, AF Tracking, Face Detection, Live MOS, My Color Mode, as well as an HDMI output.

    Air car which can go to a top speed of 100 Km ....

    A vehicle powered by compressed air offers a lot of advantages in comparison with a normal combustion engine or an electrical motor.

    The idea of using compressed air as an energy vector can, for example, also by applied to a hybrid vehicle, with cylinders functioning on compressed air and an additional battery working on electricity, creating a vehicle powered solely on electrical-pneumatic propulsion.

    Advantages of vehicles powered by compressed air:

    * The costs involved to compress the air to be used in a vehicle are inferior to the costs involved with a normal combustion engine.
    * Air is abundant, economical, transportable, storable and, most importantly, nonpolluting.
    * The technology involved with compressed air reduces the production costs of vehicles with 20% because it is not necessary to assemble a refrigeration system, a fuel tank, spark plugs or silencers.
    * Air itself is not flammable
    * The mechanical design of the motor is simple and robust
    * It does not suffer from corrosion damage resulting from the battery.
    * Less manufacturing and maintenance costs.
    * The tanks used in an air compressed motor can be discarded or recycled with less contamination than batteries.
    * The tanks used in a compressed air motor have a longer lifespan in comparison with batteries, which, after a while suffer from a reduction in performance.

    Expect ,Fiat is all set to launch car models by end of 2009 in india

    Fiat Palio 1.3
    The Fiat Palio 1.3 Stile hatchback is powered by the superior 1.3 Multijet engine, the same one that works in the award-winning Suzuki Swift DDiS model. It has a price tag of around Rs 4.5 lakh and is supposed to be the short-term model for Fiat in India, before the launch of all-new Palio based on the previous generation Punto floorpan around 2009.

    Fiat Grande Punto
    One of the leading cars of Europe, the Fiat plans to launch the Grand Punto in India as well. Not only is the car comfortable and spacious, it is powered by the multijet engine for excellent performance. Priced at Rs 5-5.5 lakhs, this car is sure to make all prospective buyers reach for their cheque books as soon as possible.

    Fiat Linea
    Based on the concept of the Punto, the Fiat Linea is another car which is at par with excellence. It offers a very smooth ride, decent performance and the fuel economy is worth applauding for. This car will be priced at approximately Rs 7.5 - 8 lakhs, making it quite a steal.

    Fiat Alfa
    This is one such car that can easily compete against BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class and the Audi A4 in India. Complete with sleek exteriors and comfortable interiors, the Alfa will make automobile lovers and critics smile with pride. It will be introduced with quite a heavy price tag of around Rs. 28 lakhs and its sale will hugely depend on Indian road conditions and the company’s service back-up.

    HONDA'S new bike in town:

    CBF Stunner motorcycles will be available in three vresions - Self Disc Alloy (Price Rs 51,655), Self Drum Alloy (Price: Rs 49,820) and Kick Drum Alloy (Price: Rs 47,070). At this point, Honda will offer the Stunner CBF in red, black, metallic silver and yellow colours.

    Lookswise, you could call it a mini-Karizma. It looks like a well-put together package for sure. We think it looks the best in yellow, the bright colour nicely contrasting with the matte black handlebars and black front fairing.

    Basic specifications of the Honda Stunner CBF are as follows:

    125cc, 11 bhp
    Kerb Weight: 129 kg
    Wheelbase: 1271mm
    Fuel tank capacity: 10 litres

    Tubeless tryes
    Front 80/100-17 and Rear: 100/90-77

    Suzuki to launch Hayabusa in India

    Now, Japanese auto giant Suzuki will bring the Hayabusa motorcycle to India. The Hayabusa - official nomenclature is GSX 1300R - will pave the way for Suzuki’s foray into the superbike segment in India. Competition, however, has already arrived in the shape of Yamaha and Ducati motorcycles in India.

    Powered by a 1340cc in line 4 cylinder engine, the Suzuki Hayabusa is likely to sport a price tag of Rs 11 lakh. The launch of the bike is expected in the first week of September 2008. Suzuki will also launch a second superbike, the GSX-R 1000 by November.

    Although boasting of a top speed of 397 km per hour as per recorded figures, the bike that will come to India will have a speed limit of 299 km per hour. We think that the higher figure here is from some world record attempts, while 299 kmph would be the official top speed. Do keep in though that superbike or not, speed limits in most parts of India are at 60 kmph, and may go up to 100 kmph on some of the expressways.

    Suzuki expects only a sale of around 150 units of the Hayabusa in India per annum

    Honda cars: ignition key cylinder and switch as the previous one jammed

    Problem :I had to change the ignition key cylinder and switch as the previous one jammed. The replacement was off a 2002 model (I believe). The key seems to work OK and the starter cranks the motor but I cannot get the engine to start, not even a peep. Everything worked fine before the key replacement.
    Is there a compatibility problem? The only thing that is now strange (IIRC) is in the display warning lights, I now see a green key and also the red brake light warning.

    Honda keys are programmed once,so cannot use it on other cars:the cheapest solution was to add a keyless entry(~$100 if equipped with power door locks, other wise replace key cylinder from dealer ship, usually Honda can reprogram the keys with a hand held unit for a 1 hour labor charge (~ $100).
