Quest Online announced today that its free-to-play MMORPG Alganon is expanding! The game's reach grows just a wee bit longer with the launch of the Aeon server, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Players on either continent can choose to play on either server, so there's nothing stopping North...

Home automation and jetpacks are surprisingly similar in that both of these space-age technologies have, for decades, been over promised and under delivered. Who here wouldn't love to tap a single button when exiting the house to activate the alarm, shut off the lights in the kids' rooms, lower the...

iTunes is loaded with features - some we love and some we don't. One feature that I really like for parties is the iTunes Visualizer, the trippy light show that plays in-sync with your music. The folks over at Sound Spectrum have released a new visualization tool called Aeon. There are three versi...

A while back the team behind the Xbox Media Center on OS X (which we covered a while back) announced that they were forking the Mac version from the main trunk. Now they've decided that the Mac version will be getting a new name: Plex (as in 'cineplex' or 'googleplex'). For those of you haven't trie...

Don't get us wrong, Nokia's Aeon concept is beautiful. By the time you remove all the fanciful, nonexistent technology and try to come up with a dead ringer of your own, though, a certain something is lost in translation. A manufacturer -- not Nokia, trust us -- has now tried (and failed) to recrea...

Inhuman babysitters aren't all that uncommon around the world, but a new creature recently placed in a Japanese department store is a godsend for shopaholics with rugrats in tow. Developed by Tmsuk, the 1.4-meter tall bot is employed at a Fukuoka retailer in order to keep watch over rambunctious yo...

Seem to good to be true? Yesiree, we're betting it is, too. Nokia's Aeon is a concept, not "Not even released for sale in U.S. yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!." If we weren't clear, he / she is trying to steal your money, so please don't bid. Of course, some may ask about the rather unconvincing renders that ar...

While the camera wielding crew over at Computex have shown us here in North America quite a few snazzy handsets of late, this one just may take the cake. It's not too often that you see a futuristic concept phone actually hit the production line, but if these photos are to be believed, it certainly...

Nokia's research and development team have kicked it up a gear with an attractive "aeon" concept phone showing up in the R&D section of the company's website. The most prominent design feature of aeon is a touchscreen that stretches over the full surface area of the phone, similar to BenQ-Siemen...

The new ZG-0032LD from AEON has a Samsung LCD panel, 32-inches of screen, and a whole lot else to love. The 1,366 x 768 LCD is rated at 450 nits of brightness, has a 1200:1 contrast ratio, and manages a speedy 8ms of response time. On top of that, there are dual HDMI ports, two S-Video connectors...

Oh, how we love peering over the Pacific to see what type of HDTVs they have over there. One of the newest is an in-house branded TV for the electronics retail behemoth AEON. The LCD may appear to be just another APEX but this one is at least made by Samsung so it should be a bit higher quality. If...
