India's third largest auto manufacturer, Tata Motors plans to launch its new MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle), Tata Indicruz in Indian market. Tata Indicruz is a premium MPV that is based on Tata Motors' most popular SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle), Tata Safari platform. Tata Indicruz is a 7-seater vehicle and most probably it will be equipped with latest 2.2L Dicor engine, navigation system and active safety features like ABS and airbags. Lookwise Tata Indicruz is a stylish car with elegant interiors and dashing exteriors along with other things like large grille, 17" alloy wheels and mirror mounted indicators. The car will have a its India launch around in month of august or september 2009.
The Tata Indicruz features the 32-bit 2.2-litre 16 valve DICOR engine which even powers the Tata Safari DICOR, Sumo Grande and the Xenon XT. The engine has two variants, one which produces 140bhp and the other which produces 120bhp. The Sumo Grande has the 120bhp engine whereas the rest has 140bhp engine. We believe the Indicruz will be powered by 140bhp.
The Tata Indicruz should be a trendy MUV, which will have most of the features of a MUV and should be spacious like most of the Tata vehicles. The front grille and the head light combination is somewhat similar to the Indica Vista with the headlight tapering upwards at the end.

Chevrolet is launching its midsize sedan, the Cruze, across the globe in 2009 replacing the Chevrolet Optra and Daewoo Lacetti, but the Cruze will slot in above the Optra in GM India’s lineup. According to GM, the Cruze "was developed by a global design and engineering team and will be built in multiple locations around the world".
Though the Chevrolet Cruze should be a mostly conventional front-drive small car, we think it may have one or more features designed to maximize mpg. Aside from its smaller new engine and other weight-reducing measures versus Cobalt, the Cruze could conceivably adopt the new low-power lighting, wipers, and audio system being devised for the chevrolet in hybrid compact sedan. This would help GM defray development costs that much sooner, and would also be in line with the Cruze's likely upscale market positioning versus Cobalt. Understand that we can't guarantee any of this right now--but hey, it could happen.
The Chevrolet Cruze is noticeably tight-skinned and a very restrained use of exterior trim adds on to its high-quality appearance. The Cruze has a steeply raked windshield gives this compact sedan a look like a coupe’s.
Engine location: Front
Drive: Front wheel drive
Engine:1.6l, 1.8l (petrol); 2.0l (diesel)

Ever had the experience when you try to takse a self-snap with wicked grin and an equally wickedly cool ray-ban (local counterparts wud also suffice) glass and end up taking only 1/4 of ur face?
well, take heart. apparently some samsung engineers had similar experience.... Samsung announced two cameras, the TL225 and TL220 with second, front LCDs that let you preview your shots while still facing the lens. Moreover it also allows those who are posing for the shoot to see how they are gonna be shot. It displays the countdown timer so that u would no longer have to worry abt not having ur best smile during the snap. This has also modernised the traditional "say cheese" version of making everyone smile with funny animations that children laugh.
The TL225 has a 3.5 inch touch screen while TL220 sports a slighltly smaller 3 inch version. TL225 has also HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) out.
Apart from this both are similar in ways like both shoot 720p HD video, 12 megapixels and a zoom capability of 4.6x.
price details: TL225 -- $350
TL220 -- $200

The world’s smallest music player also happens to be the world’s first talking one. Two things that make the iPod shuffle one amazing device.
Musically speaking, the new iPod shuffle is brilliantusing an exciting new feature called VoiceOver. if u r listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. With the press of a button, VoiceOver tells you as the music dips down. It even announces the names of your playlists. And when your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too
The controls of the new iPod shuffle are located on the right earbud cord. With command central now strategically placed in this more convenient location, you can navigate your music — and activate the VoiceOver feature — without taking your eyes off your run, your ride, or whatever you’re doing.
Shuffle. Straight. Stop.
The shuffle switch has three positions. Flip it to the left, and your music shuffles for a “whatever happens, happens” flow. Flip it to the middle, and your songs play in order. Or flip to the right to turn it off.
Your music library. To go.
There was a time when limited storage meant you had to leave a lot of your songs on the sync-room floor. But now that iPod shuffle has 4GB of storage, you have plenty of room to store hours and hours of music — up to 1,000 songs.* With room for multiple playlists, too.
Battery and power.
Built-in rechargeable lithium polymer battery
Playback time: Up to 10 hours when fully charged
Charging via USB to computer system or power adaptter.
80% charged in 2 hours; fully charged in 3 hours

Out of the box
The Gigaworks arrived in a huge heavy box, which looked more like a television or a monitor package rather than a speaker system box. The box houses seven satellites, a huge subwoofer, all the connecting wires, a control pod, a wireless remote, manuals, and the speaker stands. The build quality of the speaker sets is very good; the satellites have a sturdy construction with high quality materials used.
With a massive 700 Watts RMS total system power at its disposal, the individual power rating for each of the satellites is almost as good as that of a complete decent 5.1 system. Each of the seven satellites boast of 70 Watts RMS, while the subwoofer is rated at 210 Watts RMS. Each satellite is rated at 8 ohms at 0.1% THD at 1 KHz and the subwoofer is rated at 8 ohms at 0.2% THD at 70 Hz. The S750 has a frequency response of 25 Hz to 40 KHz and an impressive signal-to-noise-ratio of 99 dB.
Design and components
The satellites are built upon the two-way speaker architecture, with dedicated drivers for the mids and the highs. Each tuned two-way satellite speaker features a 1" Titanium super-tweeter and a high-precision 3.5" midrange driver for clear, detailed response up to 40 KHz. As far the subwoofer goes, the huge dual-flared ported wooden subwoofer features an 8" down-firing long-throw woofer. The wires are not fixed and there are clip-on connections behind the satellites, giving an option to extend the wire length or changing the default set of wires with some high quality ones. All the cables for connecting the speakers to the sound card are color coded. The back of the subwoofer houses all the connections and the power options with the on/off switch. A huge heatsink behind the subwoofer keeps the PSU and the amplifier cool, but it does play a big part in adding the extra weight, making the subwoofer the heaviest of the lot.

Rambus' XDR™2 DRAM is a high-performance, power-efficient memory, optimized for high-bandwidth applications such as gaming, graphics and multi-core computing. Initial devices are capable of 9.6Gbps data rates providing up to 38.4GB/s of bandwidth from a single 4-byte-wide device. The roadmap for XDR2 extends to 12.8Gbps data rates providing 51.2GB/s of bandwidth per device.
The XDR2 DRAM uses a traditional 8-bank CMOS DRAM core, with standard and micro-threaded operating modes. XDR DRAM support device densities from 512Mbit to 4Gbit with initial devices targeting 1 Gbit density. In addition to using Rambus micro-threading, XDR2 DRAM also incorporates other Rambus innovations such as Flexlink™C/A: the industry's first full-speed, scalable point-to-point command/address channel. Flexlink C/A, combined with programmable DRAM width and Enhanced Dynamic Point-to-Point (DPP), allows for highly scalable memory system capacity and access granularity, making XDR2 the ideal solution for a wide range of applications.Micro-threading is a new operating mode available in XDR2 DRAM which effectively doubles the number of individually addressable, simultaneously accessible banks. A standard 8-bank core can thus perform effectively as a 16-bank memory device, reducing column access granularity and increasing usable bandwidth to the controller.
