Download Free Sysinternals Coreinfo for XP SP3 and Vista SP1

Version 1.0

Coreinfo version 1.0 is a free utility released under the Sysinternals brand umbrella. Developed by Microsoft Technical Fellow Mark Russinovich, Coreinfo debuted on September 11, and is designed to retrieve and deliver information related to a machine's logical processors. According to Microsoft, Coreinfo 1.0 is designed to integrate seamlessly with all supported Windows client and server operating systems, including Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 SP1/RTM and Windows Server 2003.

“Coreinfo is a command-line utility that shows you the mapping between logical processors and the physical processor, NUMA node, and socket on which they reside, as well as the cache’s assigned to each logical processor. It uses Windows’ GetLogicalProcessorInformation function to obtain this information and prints it to the screen, representing a mapping to a logical processor with an asterisk e.g. ‘*’. Coreinfo is useful for gaining insight into the processor and cache topology of your system,” reads the official description of Coreinfo.

The latest Sysinternals utility is offered on the heels of another tool dubbed Desktops which went live at the end of August 2008. “Usage: coreinfo [-c][-l][-n][-s]. -c Dump information on cores. -l Dump information on caches. -n Dump information on NUMA nodes. -s Dump information on sockets,” Microsoft added.

All the items reunited under the Sysinternals brand are put together in their spare time by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell. Even following the acquisition of Sysinternals in July, 2006, the project has remained completely independent, and continues to be developed by Russinovich and Cogswell. In a recent interview, Russinovich promised that the work on Sysinternals utilities would continue, and that Process Explorer is one of the tools which would be receiving an upgrade, although he failed to disclose a deadline.

Coreinfo version 1.0 is available for download here.
The Sysinternals Suite is available for download here.

NES Clone inside NES Controller

 NES Clone inside NES Controller

What you see above is not only a NES controller, it is also a NES clone that packed inside the controller. Created by a modder at the BenHack Forum, This NES clone looks really nice. It has 70+ built-in games. If you want to play other games, there is a catridge connector on the back.

I took a famiclone (Super Joy III) and put it in a
controller, with a bit of style and quality added. It was
made for my girlfriend who’s a big NES nut like me. That
made it easy to guess a gift for her birthday. Just
thought, “what would I want?” Razz I got it made a little
late, but it was worth it to make right.

New TFT LCD from LG is only 1.48mm thick

Samsung may try to unofficially claim the throne as the king of slim, but their fellow Korean companies aren’t going to give up without a fight. One of their biggest competitors, in the cell phone market anyways, is LG Electronics, and it seems that LG wants a big piece of the ultra-thin pie for themselves. The Korean manufacturer has just unveiled a new TFT LCD display that is a mere 1.48mm thick, or about 0.058-inches for those of you who aren’t metrically inclined.

Showcased in both 2.0 and 2.2-inch sizes, this new display will handle QVGA resolutions without a hitch, and they’re proposing various applications. I’m sure you can guess a few of these, like portable gaming machines, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and multimedia players. If integrated into a new batch of mobile phones, along with some other slim stuff, Samsung may have quite a battle for themselves when it comes to maintaining that they also have the “world’s thinnest”.

No word on when the TFT LCD’s will be available, and whether they plan on selling the technology for other companies’ uses.

General Dynamics GoBook MR-1 - That’s One Tough Notebook

Forget what you’ve heard about those Panasonic Toughbooks or even what Lenovo claims their Thinkpads are capable of. If you need a laptop that will take a licking and keep on ticking processing you need to buy it from a company that also builds tanks. The just launched GoBook MR-1 from General Dynamics is about 1/4 the size of a regular laptop and is built to military specifications.

That means it’s dust and rain resistant, is designed for all weather conditions and can even survive 26 drops from a height of 3 feet as per military standard 810F. After drop 27 you’re going to have to try and convince General Dynamics tech support that the thing ‘just stopped working for no reason.’

Inside the MR-1’s small form factor (4.5 inches x 6.1 inches x 1.4 inches) you’ll find a 1.2 GHz Intel Core Solo U1400 processor, up to a 6 hour battery, 80GB solid state hard drive, 1 GB of ram as well as wifi, bluetooth and GPS. It also includes a touch screen with DynaVue technology making the display completely readable even in direct sunlight.

The GoBook MR-1 should be officially available sometime in September of this year starting around $4,500. And I assume it comes with a pretty good warranty too.

Now this is what you call a charger

I don’t know about anyone else but I am fed up with all the wires, adapters and plugs that come with all our beloved gadgets, there is nothing worse than trying to get a charger out of a ball of wires, especially when you know that you had put them into the draw all separately and neatly, but like some sort living organism when you need to charge up a certain device they have by some magic, twisted and rolled into one mass.

Now Callpod have developed a new charging system called Chargepod.

Chargepod is a six point charging device, it will allow the user to charge up to six devices all in one hit, no messy wires or extension leads, a none of the spaghetti to fight through just to get the right charger out.

What you get a central charging hub, the Chargepod, which comes with many versions of power adapters, these are controlled by a system called voltage regulator technology, which will make sure that each device that is connected to it will only get the right amount of power, this is essential for the long life of the device. Where the wire is connected to the Chargepod there is a cool blue indicator light, which shows what device is on charge.

As the picture shows it is possible to charge a variety of devices all at one time, whether this is a good idea or not, is yet to be proved, having all six devices connected to just one charger, must generate a lot of heat, but you do have the added bonus of only having one plug to put into the socket, so it looks good.

Samsung E210, Plain Vanilla Cellphone With Fancy Pants On

Take a look at the Samsung E210, a good example of the level of pretty cellphone technology you can get for around $200. If you’re not looking for email capability, Web access, a QWERTY keyboard, and a monthly cellphone bill that’s more expensive than dinner at a New York steakhouse, maybe this 16.5mm-thin flip phone is for you.

Don’t you just love it when Samsung trickles down its super-slim technology from its Ultra Edition line of cellphones, bestowing its slim benefits on the great unwashed? You won’t suffer too much with this bauble, though—it’s got just the right stuff to get the job done. Take the jump to see the spec list.

GSM 900/1800/1900, GPRS class 10 connectivity
120×160 px, 65K color OLED screen
96×96 px, monochrome external display
1.3 mpx camera
176×144/15 fps video capture
10MB of Internal memory
microSD memory card slot
Bluetooth, USB
Dimensions: 92×44×16.5 mm
Weight: 82g

These phones will first be available in Europe; expect to see that $200 price moving a lot lower if you buy into a cellphone service plan.

Pantech IM-S230 Cellphone’s World Record Thinness Approaches Invisibility

The Samsung U600 isn’t the slimmest slider any more, because this Pantech IM-S230 just out-skinnied it by a whole millimeter. Like a couple of supermodels battling to see who can be the first to be completely invisible when viewed from the side, this Pantech phone is just 9.9mm thick, besting the positively corpulent Samsung U600, which at 10.9mm thinks she’s starting to look fat in those short shorts.

Besides that unique thinness, the Pantech slider holds the same spec line of many other phones, with a 2.2-inch display, MP3 player and DMB TV tuner, as well as a 1.3-megapixel camera. Koreans, who may need to be careful not to cut themselves while this phone occupies their pockets, will be shelling out a $535 for the privilege of carrying it. Can these phones get any thinner ?

640GB Flash based Hard Drive…only $19,000!

Sure, it costs $30 a GB, but Fusion-io’s new ioDrive flash card promises ridiculous 800MB/sec (Read) and 600MB/sec (Write) sustained data transfer rates.

That would mean performance on par with DRAM, which would be about a thousand times faster than any existing disk drive. Basically, it’s like packing an enterprise SAN into a PCI express card. However, if $19,000 is a little too rich for your blood, you could always settle for a 80GB, 160GB, or 320GB when the ioDrive is released in Q1 2008. 80GB for $2400? Now, that’s value.
