Gurus at the University of Warwick have developed a system that \"identifies partial, distorted, scratched, smudged, or otherwise warped fingerprints in just a few seconds.\" The process is garnering attention thanks to its ability to spit out results in the blink of an eye after it \"unwarps any fing

It's no secret that cellphone manufacturers and carriers alike are getting quite crafty with their marketing approaches, but Symbian went straight for the low-blow with its Boo-Hoo campaign. Frankly, the site (and more specifically, the Boo-Hoo For You video) slams the Western smartphone for not be

'Tis the season for ultraportables, and now yet another Core Duo-powered model has hit the market, the 12.1-inch Toshiba Tecra M6.
