  • Core i5/i7 (Arrandale) processors to grace MBP’s come early 2010?

    Those with itchy trigger/mouse fingers longing to order a new top-o-the-line Macbook Pro need to get control of themselves and holster their weapons for a brighter horizon is upon us. Would you be so eager to drop 2-3 large on a MBP knowing that Arrandale (read: Core i5/i7) processors are just around the corner from release, bringing a new generation of speed and power in the smallest most energy efficient package yet? Hmm, worded like that, even the king edition of a MBP somehow loses a bit o...
  • The magical shape-shifting laptop-turned-Xbox 360. Brought to you by Geek Squad.

    Even though we in the tech circle pan Geek Squad fairly frequently, they do produce some useful entertainment from time to time. Mind you, this "entertainment" often comes at the expense of some poor saps sanity. But I digress. Today's Geek Squad face palm of the day comes from Consumerist reader "Taylor". After a two week wait with no end in sight, Taylor ventured to Geek Squad's website and entered his service number. Little did he know a magical event was about to unfold before his eyes....

    Getting a new piece of gadgetry is always exciting (cooooome ooooon Droid) except for the whole loss of money/payment thing. Toshiba UK would like you to know that they're feeling rather gifty. In order to aid your decision in dropping on a new laptop, (and of course rake in some new revenue on your behalf) Toshiba is running a laptop trade-in program offering up to £150 back on your old decrepit machine to be used towards a new, gleaming mobile machine. Some may criticize that the laptops ...
  • What is this mysterious Windows branded laptop on 30 Rock?

    Eagle eyes by Chris from MobileWhack caught a seemingly average laptop being used on the show 30 Rock. On closer inspection however we can see what appears to be a glowing Windows logo. Microsoft doesn't make hardware in regards to actual computers. So what is it? A simple one-off made for the show or some slick skin/sticker? Most likely. I've noticed myself that Macs, particularly Macbook Pro's are becoming increasingly more common in TV commercials. Is Microsoft following Apple's lead...
  • HP dv6t gets Core i7 treatment

    Looking for cheep speed? The dv6t now with i7 quad-core chips means you can have just that. Making use of either 720QM or 820QM chips ensures the figurative cake that is always being had and eaten in hypothetical thoughts is yet again being eaten. Starting at $999, the HP dv6t looks like a pretty decent laptop for those on a budget but long for a life in the fast lane. Ready to kick it up a notch? Notebook Review...
  • Google bringing their own Android phone to market (end of 2009)? Chrome OS netbook in 2010?

    Apple uses a totalitarian approach with the iPhone. Microsoft offers a mad grab for developers and hardware vendors alike. The two methods at which these two companies provide mobile services are complete opposites. Each have their pro's and con's. Apple's uniformed approach brings tight integration and unparalleled compatibility. Microsoft's approach with Windows Mobile allows a daunting list of choices as well as easier access for developers. Until now, Google has taken more or less th...

  • So they banned texting while driving? How about…”Computing while driving”?
    by Mike

    So what states and governments alike are banning texting while driving. When you are using the Laptop Steering Wheel Desk while swerving through traffic at 90 mph and get pulled over, you can politely tell the officer that there currently isn't any law against using a computer while driving (to my knowledge). You can also invite him to watch "I Love Lucy" re-runs with you...though I don't know how well that will go over. Heck, you could probably pipe in a video feed from a camera mounted on...
  • 2 is always better than 1 [GScreen Dual-Screen Laptop]
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 7:00 am
    For most valuable or lusted after objects, two is always better than one. If one of any particular object gives you great joy, than two can only double it right? While it doesn't always work like that, I'm pretty sure the effect the GScreen Dual-Screen laptop has on you will be at least 50% more favorable than a competing single screened model. Such a design requires extra special attention be payed to the construction of the housing around the screens as even a slight bump could render th...
  • Matte display option now available on 15″ MacBook Pro
    by Mike
    Posted August 11th, 2009 at 6:12 am
    When Apple made the decision to move to all glossy displays, many peoples' opinions ranged from upset to downright enraged. Some vowed never to buy another Apple product again. Others proclaimed they would hold out or even go as far as to get a third party to install a matte screen. Apple didn't completely give up on glossy displays however as the high end 17" MacBook Pro has had a $50 matte display option since the unibody's were launched late last year. However a quick stop by Apple's we...
  • N64 Laptop ensures hours of retro gaming on the fly
    by Mike

    Sure there have been various consoles parted and stuffed into cases of different sizes. But the coolest one to cross my attention so far is the N64 laptop. Stuffed inside of a PS3 carrying case, the N64 mod brings retro gaming to gamers on the move. While the mod pictured is a bit crude and unrefined, the unit apparently does the intended purpose of giving the creators the added benefit and ease of N64 gaming wherever they please. Not to mention, the game in the picture is one of my favori...
  • CrunchPad to compete with theoretical Apple Tablet?
    by Mike
    Posted July 31st, 2009 at 12:10 pm
    An interesting war could soon be starting. No it's not a war of man and military machines, but instead a war between an underdog and seasoned veteran. The underdog, Michael Arrington of TechCrunch teamed up with a Singapore tech startup, Fusion Garage to get his CrunchPad idea into reality. From the beginning, the CrunchPad was to be a $200 touchscreen tablet device that would eschew the typical local storage and focus primarily on the web in both program usage and storage (as the device do...
