Visage 7 to be displayed at RSNA in December
Visage Imaging has announced Visage 7, its first diagnostic imaging software based on thin client streaming technology. Designed for the medical industry, the software allows users to read, process and review every form of exam, ranging from plain film to cardiac, with specialized tools for radiologists, clinicians and referrers.

Stores and shares photos, images and data files
Stardom has introduced the Safe Capsule, a RAID 1 storage system designed for use with Apple's Time Capsule. The device enables users to add up to 2TB of network storage for keeping backups, photos, music or other data files. The drives are configured as a RAID 1 array which mirrors the disks to protect against data loss if one drive fails. Safe Capsule also provides an auto-rebuild function to automatically rebuild the data after a hard drive fails. The rebuild status can be quickly viewed using an LED indicator.
Save Benjis+ supports bar code scanning
Sol Robots has released Save Benjis+, an app that builds upon the company's previous App Store utility that had allowed users to compare product prices. The app works with the iPhone's camera to help simplify the process by automatically scanning barcodes. It provides data on over 5 million items from hundreds of different stores, while allowing users to search for items by criteria such as product name, item number, author, actor or publisher, among others.
Compresses and e-mails files or folders
Zevrix Solutions has announced a new media delivering software, File Courier 1.0. The app is designed to improve the efficiency of sending files and folders via FTP or between local destinations.

Users can also encrypt disk images with passwords, or create low resolution versions of PDF files that can be attached to an e-mail.

Qualcomm demo may show Lenovo Android PC
A demo of a smartbook prototype from Qualcomm may have provided more details of Lenovo's smartbook for AT&T, including its choice of OS. The design, which cosmetically resembles the publicly displayed Lenovo system, runs on a comparatively fast 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and has been shown running Android, suggesting Google's OS is at least a candidate for the system. Previously, it had appeared that Lenovo would use a proprietary Linux release instead.
GeForce 310 provides upgraded budget GPU
In a low-key move during Thanksgiving, NVIDIA has added the first graphics chipset to its GeForce 300 series. The GeForce 310 is a direct replacement for the earlier 210 and, like its predecessor, is meant as a basic GPU to upgrade the performance of systems that are limited to slower integrated graphics. It has just a 64-bit memory bus and just 16 processing cores but can still fully accelerate 1080p video in hardware and provide general-purpose computing tasks, whether it's NVIDIA's own CUDA and PhysX or more universal standards like DirectCompute and OpenCL.
Acer sees Win 7 as modest help
Acer chief Gianfranco Lanci told the press on Thursday that Windows 7 has had a noticeable but small impact on sales. The executive estimates that holiday PC sales should jump about 25 percent versus last year, when the economic crash hurt sales, but that they should only be flat compared to this summer. Much of the forecast was calculated after gauging the feature set early on.
Nokia X6 available with unlimited music
Nokia today said that the X6 Comes with Music edition is now shipping. The media phone is Nokia's most advanced to support the unlimited subscription service and, with 32GB of internal storage, could theoretically download and keep about 7,000 songs without paying extra beyond the price of the Comes with Music phone itself. The phone can as always either buy tracks through Nokia or sync with a Mac or PC.
Buffalo claims fastest Blu-ray recorder
Buffalo on Thursday set a minor milestone by launching what should be the fastest Blu-ray burner to date. At 12X even with dual-layer discs, the BR-X1216U3 ties with Pioneer for a 50 percent speed boost over 8X drives but is unique for supporting USB 3.0. The 5Gbps interface theoretically lets it transfer data faster than USB 2.0; Buffalo says the drive is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 but is limited to writing at 7X using the older standard.
