PC trackpads have tended to lag behind their MacBook counterparts, but the gap’s narrowing today. Synaptics—the same folks who introduced the buttonless, clickable PC trackpad last year, are adding four-finger gestures and more goodies with their TouchPad-IS platform.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Amazon will release a thinner Kindle this August, with a crisper, more responsive screen. But e-ink fans looking forward to the full-color, mulittouch mega-Kindle will have to wait a while longer; this week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos told shareholders that a color Kindle was still “some ways out,” adding, “I’ve seen some stuff in the laboratory, but it’s not quite ready for prime-time production.” More

There are plenty of super yacht concepts that I’ll never touch, much less own—such as ones with three level designs or impossible masts —but I’m still happy that a design finally includes a built-in garage. And a super car. More

Last December, One Laptop per Child ‘s XO-3 tablet was an impossible dream : semi-flexible plastic, multitouch, sci-fi thinness, all for $75. And while a partnership with Marvell helps breathe life into XO-3, it won’t resemble winter’s fantasy device.

When Google says the T-Mobile G1 will never get Android 2.2 Froyo because there’s not enough space for the OS to fit in the flash space, the dev community thankfully doesn’t listen. The folks at the xda developers have gotten a “very Alpha” build of 2.2 ported to both the T-Mobile G1 and myTouch 3G and it’s sort of usable. Calls, 3G, LEDs, and the notification bar are in working order and it’s noticeably speedier. Things that are currently broken: Wi-Fi, camera, gps, and external audio.
