Google Chrome and Cirque du Soleil have partnered to show off the potential of the modern Web with an all-HTML5 Cirque performance that's unique to the Web, called Movi.Kanti.Revo.
The name comes from the Esperanto terms for moving, singing, and dreaming, according to the official Movi.Kanti.Revo Google announcement, and the experience does go to great lengths to create a dreamlike world on the Web. During different scenes of Movi .Kanti.Revo (pronounced MOOV-ee CANT-ee REEV-oh), you can interact with the site by moving your body or speaking to your computer. If that sounds a lot … Read more
For those who favor hybrid drives over solid-state drives due to the cost, though the Seagate Momentus XT has thus far been the sole representative, there's now another option. OCZ announced today its first hybrid drive, the RevoDrive Hybrid.
The new drive is very different from the Momentus XT, as it doesn't follow the traditional design of an SATA drive, but rather that of a PCI Express (PCIe) add-on card, normally found in a video or sound product. This means that while the drive won't fit in most places where regular SATA hard drives would be used, … Read more
Revo Uninstaller Portable is a portable freeware version of Revo Uninstaller. It's from PortableApps, which specializes in producing versatile portable versions of popular open-source freeware. Like the installed version, Revo Portable offers much more versatility than most other uninstaller programs, including several levels of thoroughness that can scour your system for the files and folders other uninstallers leave behind.
The first thing we noticed when we opened Revo is that it doesn't look like any other uninstaller we've tried, though it can, if we wanted to make it so: we could toggle between the default icon view … Read more
We posted our review of Acer's Revo 100 budget home theater PC this afternoon, and if you're still on board with the concept of a PC in the living room, we recommend this PC for two reasons.
The first is that Acer has done a better job than any other HTPC vendor at addressing the couch-based input problem that plagues living room systems. The $499 Revo comes with a wireless touchpad that doubles as a QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard works better than the touchpad, which doesn't recognize your tap-based clicks as well as it should, but compared to the usual cruddy remote, or worse a full-sized wireless mouse and keyboard, the Revo 100's touchpad offers a tidy solution to a classic HTPC problem.… Read more
The living room PC might not be the most exciting concept, but Acer has rekindled our interest with its new Aspire Revo RL100 design. Roughly the shape of a slim PlayStation 2, the Revo RL100 offers both a sleek design and an innovative keyboard that attempts to solve the classic interface problem inherent to media PCs.
The wireless backlit keyboard pops out from a slot underneath the optical drive. It's not meant for writing essays, but it should suffice for simple text entries, like searching for a movie title. The keyboard also doubles as a touch-pad surface, and in … Read more
We've been waiting for iSkin to release a version of its popular Solo case for the iPhone 4 and now it has along with a Revo4 case. Both these cases come in multiple colors and iSkin is offering a "special introductory" price on the Solo (pictured on right), which it will sell for $14.99 until August 31, 2010.
ISkin's news release says the company is offering that special price--the Solo normally lists for $29.99--to support Apple's iPhone 4 case program. We're not sure what that means, because, after all, Apple's is … Read more
The latest version of the popular Revo Uninstaller utility now removes 64-bit apps and throws in a host of other new features.
The VS Revo Group this week unveiled the new $40 professional edition of its Revo Uninstaller, a utility that can cleanly rid your system of unwanted software. Available in the past solely as freeware, Revo Uninstaller will now come in two flavors--the free edition and the pro. The free version hasn't been updated since the spring and so lacks many of the new features found in its professional cousin.
Shenel Emin, a product manager at VS Revo … Read more
