Sparkle's Tiny Component HTPC

The Sparkle Cuti n30 is a modular system that comes in several parts. One component houses just the core system with the processor and basic components. There's also a unit that adds I/O ports like audio jacks, a memory card reader, and a few USB ports, and another module that adds a hot-swap bay for 2.5 inch hard drives. The system can support up to 4GB of RAM, and 500GB of hard drive space. The Cuti n30 is based on the NVIDIA ION platform which bundles a dual core Intel Atom 330 CPU with an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. It also includes 802.11b/g/n WiFi, a mini PCI-e slot, 7.1 channel audio and has both HDMI and DVI outputs. The website IONBased has more pictures of the unit from last weeks Computex show.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
