Video: The Byte - Tsunami anniversary, iPad sold out, new CTO, Microsoft research


While the one year anniversary of Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami came and went this weekend, work still continues near a Sony factory in tah-ga-joe. The scene though is much different than it was a year ago. Cars, debris and mud have been cleaned, but reminders remain.

Apple has sold out of initial supplies of the new iPad in every country where it will launch on Friday. In the US and Canada pre-orders will ship for most buyers on March 19, that's 3 days after it goes on sale in stores.

President Barack Obama has appointed Todd Park as the new CTO for the US government. Park served as CTO at the US Department of health and human servies, before which he was a management consultant. He replaces Aneesh Chopra who stepped down last month.

Microsoft showed off a wearable projector at its TechFest research conference that uses a Kinect sensor to make just about any surface a touch sensitive one. Since the camera is depth sensing, different surfaces can be used, like a wall or even a notepad. No word on commercialization.
