Lenovo 23-Inch Tablet For Home Use

Lenovo believes in the tablet PC market, so much in fact that the company is currently developing a 23-inch LCD based Tablet for home use.
Lenovo senior marketing specialist, William Cai spoke with TechRadar and revealed:
“We think that there is potential for a 23-inch tablet,” while adding, ”We’d have to take care of battery life and we are working to get the weight down.”
The basic premise for the larger-than-normal tablet is that it will be based off current Lenovo all-in-one desktop units (pictured above), while featuring a battery power supply. The device will also have the option to be used as a television or paired with a keyboard to offer a “desktop experience” according to Cai.
Specs for the unit are being kept under wraps by the Lenovo team, however the first units are expected to arrive “sometime in 2011

Revealed: Hazel Keech, Salman Khan's new girl

Revealed: Hazel Keech, Salman Khan`s new girlLadies and gentlemen, Hazel Keech is the latest girl from B-town,who has caught the fancy of our very own Dabangg star Salman Khan. 

The lovely lass is starring in Sallu's new film Bodyguard, directed by his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. The two have been seen bonding big time on the sets, so much so that Sallu miyan has been taking the pains to teach her how to ride the bike, has been giving her acting tips. 

But the question everybody asking is just who is this Hazel Keech?

According to reports the starlet was born to an Indian mother and British father in Essex, north-east London. From childhood she was introduced to different dances by her mother. At ten, she was already learning Bharat Natyam. 

Hazel got her first break as an extra on Harry Potter's second, third and fourth series of films as Rose Dawn. She has also performed on Brit TV shows like ‘Call The Shots’ and ‘Miss Maple’. 

Sonakshi Sinha has hots for Anushka's boyfriend

Sonakshi Sinha has hots for Anushka`s boyfriendSonakshi Sinha has set her eyes on Ranveer Singh. 

The Dabangg girl seems to have the hots for the Band Baaja Baraat munda, which was quite obvious on Koffee With Karan. 

She just couldn't stop gushing about the B Town's newbie and said how she would love to date him if he was 'single'. 

When KJo mentioned it to Ranveer's current girlfriend Anushka Sharma who was with him in the hot seat in the following week she retorted, "He is all yours. Please go ahead." 

What say, Ranveer? 

Bollywood hotties and their Dirty Dancing

Bollywood hotties and their Dirty DancingBe it 1950s or 2011, item songs have always been seen as the X-Factor of Hindi films. Sreya Basu finds out what makes the hip-shackers a guaranteed success at the Box Office

Back in 1960s Helen’s name on film posters used to be magnified and got more space than the heroine’s. And a dance number by Bindu or Aruna Irani was like an insurance policy for the film’s success. 

The scene remains unchanged even today where Salman Khan needs a Munni Badnaam to garnish his Dabangg. Or, Sheila Ki Jawaani saves Farah Khan from being doomed by an otherwise flop Tees Maar Khan. 

No matter how much film-scholars scrowl or criticize item numbers, Hindi films are unimaginable without the taadka of hip-swivelling chartbusters. 

Talking about item numbers, how can we forget the ‘hottie ready to go naughty’ attitude of item girls!

In another demonstration this week, the computer scrolled a text on the screen in response to eye movements, sensing when the reader reached the end of the visible text.

Salman Khan loves to play Godfather to newcomers. He has now taken an actress called Hazel not to be confused with Hazel from Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar under his wing.

She plays the role of Kareena Kapoor's friend in Atul Agnihotri's Bodyguard.

She's tomboyish

A source informs, "Hazel is a British model and has a very heavy Brit accent. She is full of attitude, just like Sallu. They hit it off well from the word go. She is very tomboyish and rides dirt bikes."

Ranbir-Katrina caught kissing on a flightCouple seen getting cosy on flight

Since debuting in Boom (2003), Katrina Kaif has remained more or less aloof from and reserved with other actresses. 

That attitude seems to be changing, beginning with Anushka Sharma. 

You'd expect the senior actress to snark at the new actress, given that she is slowly but surely trying to step into Sheila's shoes. 

Not only was Sharma's last release with Kat's fav actor Akshay Kumar, but the Band Bajaa Baraat girl was boldly trying hard to cosy upto Ranbir Kapoor, in the presence of Kat at a party last month!

Me, too?

The last time, it was he, who called it quits, this time it was Pranks who decided she'd had enough. A source close to the duo spills the beans, "The biggest problem between them was lack of communication.

The pair, who came together, were holding hands, and had their arms around each other for the better part of the night. Later into the night, they burned up the dance floor together.

Their public displays of affection shocked everyone present, and their devil-may-care attitude was the talk of the town the following morning.
