Player of the Week
From an NBA draft standpoint, Zeller has greatly raised his stock by becoming a better rebounder, a more polished defender and a smarter passer. It's refreshing to see a prospect that understands his weaknesses and uses his time at school to actually make himself a better player. The fact that Zeller has raised his field-goal shooting percentage and his point, rebound, assist, block and steal averages every single season of his college career is a great testament to his strong work ethic and willingness to improve. He capped off the regular season by scoring 19 points (9/11 from the floor) and pulling down 10 rebounds in an 88-70 blowout win at Duke. Not bad. Maybe it doesn't live up to the 30-point, 20-made free-throw standard that he set in his previous game (win against Maryland on Wednesday), but it did help his team win the regular-season title over their rivals. Anyway, Zeller was recently named the ACC Player of the Year, and it's hard to make a case for anybody else with the way he's been producing lately. If he can carry his recent play into the postseason, then UNC has at least a good chance of winning a national championship.
I remember writing about Ian Miller last summer. Florida State wasn't a good offensive team the previous season, and after losing Chris Singleton to the NBA, they needed a new go-to scorer. Miller was a freak athlete and a quality shooter with a year under his belt. It appeared that he would have every opportunity to break out this season. While he didn't become a go-to scorer (not yet, anyway), he is averaging a respectable 10.8 points per game this year and did perform like a hero in last week's FSU/Virginia matchup. Miller scored 15 points in the second half, including the last second tie-breaking triple, to help FSU come back from a double-digit deficit to defeat the Cavaliers and clinch a first-round bye in the ACC tournament. This was only the latest in a series of clutch performances from FSU players. Forward Michael Snaer hit a buzzer-beating three in January to give the Seminoles a victory at Duke. He did it again a few weeks later, making a three with 2.6 seconds left to give his team a 48-47 win against Virginia Tech. Florida State is consistently a great defensive team, and there's little doubt they'll be taking that ability into the tournament with them. If Miller and Snaer are providing offense to go along with that, then FSU becomes a sleeper team.
Somebody had to bear the responsibility for Duke's loss, and while it isn't fair to single out any one player, that's exactly what I've decided to do. Yeah, it's my blog and I say everything is Ryan Kelly's fault. I mentioned last week that he could be one of the determining factors in the game against UNC and he kind of fell flat on his face, shooting 1/8 from the floor, missing all five of his three-point attempts and pulling down only one rebound in 28 minutes of play. But it was really the collective poor shooting performance all-around from the Blue Devils that cost them the game. As a team, they made only six shots from behind the arc, compared to the 14 they made to beat UNC earlier in the season. I guess you should also consider the fact that they were outrebounded 42 to 22. Really, everybody shoulders some fault for the loss (except maybe Miles Plumlee, who shot 7/9 from the floor and was the only player on the roster to pull down five or more rebounds) A lot has to go wrong for Duke to get blown out at home, and this time that's exactly what happened.
Top 5 Teams in the ACC (Updated)
1. North Carolina - The win against Duke last Saturday earned the Tar Heels the ACC Regular Season Championship and potentially a number one seed in the NCAA tournament. They've got a lot going for them, and definitely have a chance to challenge for the national championship.
2. Duke - If everything goes as expected, Duke projects to face Florida State in the semifinals (such is the fallout of losing the regular season crown to North Carolina). That could be a headache for Duke, who lost at home to the Seminoles earlier in the season. As usual, Duke's success will ultimately depend on their outside shooting. They have a lot of great shooters, and if the team gets hot then they become extremely hard to defeat.
3. Florida State - The Seminoles have beat every team in the ACC this season outside of the Boston College Eagles. Fortunately, FSU has a first-round bye and in all likelihood, will avoid the only team that has a clear advantage over them. But seriously, this team can beat anybody and somehow becomes a very dangerous offensive team in the last few seconds of close games.
4. Virginia - They had a lot of steam a few weeks ago, but have recently lost a good deal of that momentum. Virginia plays hard, but outside of Mike Scott they really don't have a lot of firepower. Their defense keeps them in games (six of their eight losses have been by three points or less), but somebody else is going to have to step up if the Cavaliers want to last long in the postseason.
5. Miami - I like Miami during the ACC Tournament; maybe not to win it all, but I like them to be extremely competitive anyhow. They have great size in Kenny Kadji and Reggie Johnson to go along with their backcourt of Malcolm Grant, Shane Larkin and Durand Scott. If they advance past Georgia Tech, they'll match-up with FSU in the quarterfinals, which could be interesting.
Bernard James wrote the University of Virginia a letter of apology after kicking Joe Harris following a collision during Thursday's game ... John Henson was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season ... Austin Rivers was named the ACC Rookie of the Year ... Florida State’s Leonard Hamilton was named the ACC Coach of the Year ... The ACC tournament kicks off on Thursday the 8th. Whoot! ...

I spent an extended weekend at Sanctuary Belize where we are in the process of building a vacation home and eventually plan to retire IBM 08K8194 . I left my tablet at home (I did bring my Kindle Fire) and my wife left her laptop at home and brought her iPad and Kindle Fire. We both wanted to stay in touch and work on the house project IBM 92P1010 .
What we found was rather interesting -- it was the Kindle Fire we couldn't live without, and while the iPad proved the better product for communication, for actually getting the job done the Toshiba Ultrabook we brought won out IBM 92P1011 .
In Belize, the authorities block Skype IBM 92P1058 , and though my T-Mobile phone connected just fine, voice calls cost $3 a minute and texts were a whopping 35 cents each. On top of that, the local telephone service doesn't do data, so our phones could use email only when we could connect to Wi-Fi. Fortunately, the hotel and airports had free Wi-Fi; unfortunately, it wasn't particularly reliable IBM 92P1060 .
But when it came to talking long distance, Apple's FaceTime filled the gap because my wife's sisters and our neighbor who was watching our house all have iPads, which kept our phone bill out of the stratosphere IBM 92P1062 .However, when we tried to do work for the house, like look at examples of flooring, countertops or electrical devices, we found that most sites use Flash. That meant that we were constantly running back to the room for the Ultrabook to actually see what our architect was talking about and respond with critical suggestions or decisions IBM 92P1067 .
We also noticed that the iPad often had trouble connecting to the network. In fact, there were people running around the resort complaining that their iPads weren't working while the Ultrabook, phones and Kindles seemed to have few issues IBM 92P1070 . This has turned into a common problem when we travel with the iPad: Wi-Fi connectivity seems iffy.
I had lunch with a Cisco engineer a few weeks back and he said that this is a known problem with Apple products and most wireless routers IBM 92P1071 . The fix is to use Apple routers, which apparently provide the best connectivity of any home-class router in the market. Enterprise-class routers from Cisco and others evidently don't have these problems, but hotels and small foreign airports often use home or small-business products which is why IBM 92P1074 , according to the Cisco engineer, we were seeing this problem.
As you would expect, the Ultrabook, because it has a keyboard, was vastly better for writing longer IBM 92P1075 , even though we brought along the Bluetooth keyboard that we have for the iPad. The much larger screen helped, as well. However, jumping back and forth often had us trying to control Ultrabook by touching its screen because we had gotten so used to how the iPad worked IBM 92P1087 .
In the end, it became clear that what we wanted was a blend of the two products -- the utility IBM 92P1088 , connectivity and practicality of the Ultrabook, and the iPad's touch capabilities coupled with FaceTime.We already know that the ideal Windows 8 hardware is likely to be some variant of an Ultrabook and a tablet, and Apple is signaling it plans eventually to converge its operating systems to create something g similar IBM 92P1089 . If Microsoft can get the Skype blocks lifted, or if countries start blocking FaceTime, Microsoft has a shot at closing Apple out of this opportunity IBM 92P1090 .
But as FaceTime remains unblocked, if Apple gets this done right first, it they will take an even more impressive share of this market than is currently enjoys IBM 92P1091 . But to win in the corporate market, it will need to make FaceTime more of a business solution than it currently is -- Skype already has broad business penetration, but that does no good if Skype is blocked.
In the end, the fourth quarter is likely to be quite interesting IBM 92P1101 , because whichever company gets this done right first is likely to own the mobile laptop segment.

Researchers at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg recently announced a new type of plastic they claim can mimic the human skin's ability to repair itself after being damaged. When scratched or cracked IBM ASM 92P1064 , the plastic turns red at the damaged area and then heals when exposed to light or significant changes in ambient temperature or pH. The new plastic was presented in a paper during the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society IBM FRU 08K8193 .
The secret to the new plastic's self-healing properties are tiny molecular links that span the entire material. When the plastic breaks IBM FRU 08K8195 , so do the links, resulting in the red mark at the point of damage. The red mark disappears when the plastic reforms after exposure to light or temperature changes. Professor Marek W. Urban, who lead the research, said the new plastic healing is not a one-time deal and the material can repair itself several times over IBM FRU 08K8214 .
The substance doesn't appear to be ready for commercial use just yet, but possible uses for the new material include tech gadgets, aviation and military equipment. Urban's research is receiving funding from the Department of Defense IBM ThinkPad R50 .
Nissan recently debuted a taste of tech's self-healing future with a new iPhone case that can also heal itself when scratched IBM ThinkPad R50E . The Nissan Scratch Shield iPhone case uses a polyrotaxane-based paint that can slowly return the case to its original state after scratches and deep cuts. Nissan also uses its self-healing paint in Nissan and Infiniti brand cars. The iPhone case is currently being beta tested with a small group IBM ThinkPad R50P , but, the company says, if demand is high enough, Nissan may create a publicly available commercial version before the end of 2012.The Qosmio X775-Q7170 is the entry-level model of the Qosmio X770 series of desktop replacement laptops. The Q7170 sports the same snazzy design as other laptops in the series: a 17.3-inch widescreen IBM ThinkPad R51 Series , a red-backlit keyboard, and a fade-to-red color scheme. However, it comes packed with some less-impressive hardware components and no 3D display.
Our review model, priced at $1150 (as of March 23, 2012), has an Intel Core i5-2450M processor IBM ThinkPad R51e , 6GB of DDR3 memory, a 640GB hard-disk drive spinning at 7200 rpm, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M graphics card. Since the graphics card doesn't support 3D Vision, Toshiba offers a tray-loading DVD-SuperMulti drive in lieu of a Blu-ray disc player. The X775-Q7170 has built-in Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and Bluetooth 3.0, and it runs 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium IBM ThinkPad R52 Series .
The X775-Q7170 earned a score of 82 on our new WorldBench 7 benchmark tests, which means that it was approximately 18 percent slower than our baseline configuration, which has an i5-2500K processor IBM ThinkPad T40 Series , 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card. This score isn't stellar for a desktop replacement laptop, but it's not bad for the price.
The Qosmio looks like its brothers in the X770 family, which is a good thing if you favor the chunky IBM ThinkPad T40P , plastic, super-polished gaming rig look. The chassis is almost entirely dressed in striated gray plastic, except for the very bottom of the lid (when the computer is open), and the very top of the keyboard deck, where the gray gives way to shiny metallic red. My colleague Jon L. Jacobi likens the Qosmio's casing to a tricked-out street racing car IBM ThinkPad T41 , and that's exactly what it looks like: shiny, fast, and a little tacky.
Toshiba also slaps the Qosmio logo on the lid of the machine in red mirrored plastic, which only serves to make the entire thing look cheaper and more garish IBM ThinkPad T41P .
In case you couldn't tell, I'm not a fan of the Qosmio's overall look. But if you like gaming rigs with lots of shine and pretty lights, this may be the machine for you. The X775-Q7170 has a large keyboard with red backlights IBM ThinkPad T42 .
Turning the keyboard light on doesn't just light up the keyboard; it also lights up a strip across the top of the touchpad and six of the seven touch buttons located above the keyboard. I admit that the red lights look pretty cool when the entire machine lights up IBM ThinkPad T42P .
Aside from the full-size keyboard with ten-key number pad, the Qosmio's keyboard deck contains a large touchpad (with two discrete buttons and an on/off switch) IBM ThinkPad T43 Series , and seven touch buttons (Eco Mode toggle, Wi-Fi toggle, Keyboard Light toggle, Play/Pause, Mute, Volume Down, and Volume Up). On either side of the touch buttons are two Harman/Kardon stereo speakers (Toshiba also supplies a bottom-mounted woofer for extra audio kick) IBM ThinkPad T43P .
The keyboard's Chiclet-style keys are smallish, but they provide good feedback and are less stiff than smaller keys tend to be. The touchpad has a slightly rough texture, which seemed to trip up the smoothness and precision of my typing Lenovo ThinkPad E40 . The touchpad's large buttons are composed of shiny plastic and feel a little flimsy, as though they might break within a year. Since this is a desktop replacement, I suggest using an external mouse.
The Qosmio X775-Q7170 offers a generous selection of ports, considering that a large battery, fan, and optical drive occupy most of the back end. You get four USB ports (three USB 2.0, and one USB 3.0 with Sleep and Charge), VGA- and HDMI-out, gigabit ethernet Lenovo ThinkPad E50 , headphone and microphone jacks, and a lock slot. You'll find a memory card reader on the front of the machine.
This desktop replacement sports a glossy, 17.3-inch LED-backlit display with a native resolution of 1600 by 900 Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 0578-47B . The screen generally looks good, with bright colors, good contrast, and decent off-axis viewing angles, but it falls short of full HD, and that fact is noticeable on such a large display. You can distinguish individual pixels, which makes content--including images, video, and text--look slightlyfuzzy. At the desktop replacement level, this is definitely a bummer Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 2875 .
Video played smoothly on the laptop, despite the fuzziness. Basic HD streaming and DVD playback worked without a hitch, but you may want to consider another machine if you're looking for a strong gaming rig. In our Crysis 2 gaming test Lenovo ThinkPad W510 , the X775-Q7170 earned a mark of 69 out of 100, and managed frame rates of around 46 frames per second (at high quality, and 1366 by 768 resolution). Audio sounded good, however, thanks to the bottom-mounted woofer and the top-mounted speakers. The headphone jack delivered excellent sound, too Lenovo Thinkpad L412 .
The Qosmio X775-Q7170 disappoints as a gaming machine/desktop replacement, and it's too big to function well for any other purpose. Thanks to the extra-large battery that protrudes from the bottom of the laptop, the machine does get decent battery life for its category (about 4 hours, 30 minutes in our tests) Lenovo ThinkPad W520 , but that means little when you're lugging around an 8-pound machine. Still, if you're looking for a laptop that you can play games on in a pinch, this model might be worth considering.Sony is working on producing a slim, ultraportable laptop running Google’s Chrome OS, according to documents filed with the FCCLenovo ThinkPad L412 . That’s right, a Chromebook. Remember those?
It’s been nearly a year since Google announced its partnership with Acer and Samsung to sell Chromebooks. Chromebooks, in case you’ve forgotten, are lightweight, instant-on “browser-in-a-box” netbook-like devices, affordably priced at around $300 to $400. So far Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 2875 , only Acer and Samsung have made them, however, and there are only a few Chromebook models to choose from Lenovo ThinkPad T420 .
The Sony VAIO VCC111 Series, revealed at the FCC (spotted by Laptop Reviews), should offer you at least one more choice Lenovo ThinkPad T520 .
According to the filed documents, the upcoming VAIO Chromebook will sport an 11.6-inch screen produced by Samsung. This makes it the same size as the Acer Chromebook. Like the Acer LENOVO IdeaPad Y560D Battery , the VAIO also has an HDMI port (an advantage both Chromebooks have over the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook), as well as your usual ports and connectivity options: two USB ports, a SD card reader, headphone and microphone jacks, Bluetooth, and Wireless-N.
The rest of the details are still speculation. A sticker on the bottom of the laptop says “T25,” which could suggest an Nvidia Tegra 250 T25 ARM processor--making the VAIO Chromebook the first to launch without an Intel Atom-based processor. This might give the Sony Chromebook an edge when it comes to LENOVO IdeaPad Y560AT Battery life.
Also up in the air is the amount of memory and storage space on the VAIO Chromebook LENOVO IdeaPad Y560P Battery . If it’s similar to the Acer and Samsung Chromebooks, the Sony will likely come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB SSD storage.
