Don’t be fooled by the form factor and your initial impressions -- what we have before us is not a typical smartphone. Well, technically we suppose it is, but the experience is not intended to replace your commonplace iPhone, Galaxy S, or other handset. In fact, you should not even consider running to your nearest wireless carrier to pick one up. No, instead HP is billing the Elite x3 as a corporate device flexible enough to eliminate company-issued laptops and workstations for many users. This sounds like quite a tall order. Certainly, many professionals do rely on powerful number crunching machines.... Read more...
For many professionals, today's work environment entails a fair bit of traveling. The mobile workforce is growing and to keep up with the trend, HP on Sunday announced the Pro x2 612 G2 (just Pro x2 from here on out), a "dynamic new commercial detachable" designed for professionals who want a stylish device that's easy to use, and one that is also suitable for work chores in field services, government, healthcare, and other professional sectors requiring enterprise-class security. "Today, more than 60 percent of millennials work from more than one location and by 2020 they will be a majority of... Read more...
  Just yesterday, we posted a story concerning printer security and how we should take it more seriously given IoT botnets that are swooping across the globe (namely Mirai), along with the sensitive data and documents these machines are custodians of. Today’s printers have relatively potent processors, complex operating systems and of course connect to the internet, to enable remote printing and firmware updates (among other things). Unsurprisingly, though the timing is impeccable, a hacker by the name of Stackoverflowin’ just made the case for increased security with it comes to printers.... Read more...
Take a look at your printer. Give it a good stare. Do you trust it? Probably not, considering it jammed the last time you had to print an important paper right up against a deadline. However, what if we told you that your printer just has to sit there on your network to be a very serious security problem? HP Inc. recently hosted a tech field day for us, and several other security-focused journalists, at their headquarters in Palo Alto. We will speak to some of the panels we listened in on as we go, but the goal for HP at this event was to raise awareness around security - particularly where printers... Read more...
Back in June 2016, Hewlett-Packard issued a recall of 41,000 batteries produced for laptops sold under both the HP and Compaq brand names. Today, HP announced that it is extending the recall to include an additional 101,000 batteries that were sold in laptops between March 2013 and October 2016. Like before, this recall affects laptops sold under both the HP and Compaq brand names, and includes the HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario, and HP Pavilion notebook families. The recall is currently in place for laptops that were sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico, with most of the laptops... Read more...
Hewlett-Packed is already a pretty big name in the education sector, but the company is looking to expand its position with the release of a new convertible aimed at accident-prone students. The ProBook x360 11 G1 Education Edition is being billed as the world’s thinnest rugged convertible, and we have no reason to discount HP’s claim. The ProBook x360 11 G1 was built to handle the worst that little tikes can dish at it thanks to its MIL-ST-810G rating, pick- and spill-resistant keyboard, Gorilla Glass 4 display covering, and industrial rubber-molded exterior which helps to absorb impact from repeated...

Forget everything you know about workstations, or at least dismiss the preconceived notion that systems serving up server grade power are typically as big as they are powerful. That might have been the case before, but HP just turned the sector upside down by introducing its Z2 Mini, a relatively tiny box measuring 2.3 inches high by 8.5 inches long and wide. HP is billing the Z2 Mini as the industry's first mini workstation. We won't argue that claim—at just 2.3 inches high, the Z2 Mini is 90 percent smaller than a traditional business-class tower desktop. Or put another way, this thing is shorter... Read more...

These luxury watches will make use of the former's Engineered by HP smart platform and will span the latter's licensed watch brand portfolio, including Coach, HUGO BOSS, Juicy Couture, Tommy Hilfiger, and Scuderia Ferrari.

After a few delays that put the flagship Windows 10 Mobile flagship behind schedule, the Hewlett-Packard Elite x3 is finally available for customers to purchase. Starting this week, Microsoft opened up sales for the powerful smartphone via the Microsoft Store. Given the laundry list of features that are included with the Elite x3, this is by far the most powerful and versatile Windows 10 Mobile device released to date. Just look at its feature set, which wouldn’t be out of place on a flagship Android device: 5.96-inch WQHD AMOLED display Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor 4GB RAM 64GB internal storage...

Hewlett-Packard is already gearing up for the holiday shopping season, and the company has four new products that it is unleashing on the public. They include the second generation Spectre x360 convertible, the ENVY Laptop, ENVY AIO 27 and the ENVY 27 Display. We’ll kick things off with the Spectre x360, which is now sporting 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. Thanks to the more efficient Core processors and a larger 57.8 Whr battery, the Spectre x360 can now last 25 percent longer per charge, bringing total runtime to 15 hours. HP has also made the bezels even smaller by trimming... Read more...
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) definitely has a lot of pull in the tech industry. Within 24 hours, the EFF’s public call-out of HP’s decision to brick third-party ink cartridges in customers’ printers has generated a sincere apology. HP Inc. Chief Operating Officer Jon Flaxman issued the apology in a blog posting, but not before explaining the company’s reasoning for bringing the ban hammer down on the ink cartridges in the first place. “We updated a cartridge authentication procedure in select models of HP office inkjet printers to ensure the best consumer experience and protect them...

Hewlett-Packard came under fire earlier this month when it was revealed that it was purposefully “bricking” third-party ink cartridges in customers’ printers. Customers were unaware that such trickery was even going on until printers around the globe starting throwing up error messages at the same time on September 13th. HP did acknowledge its actions, saying that its designed its printer firmware to “protect the printers and to protect the communication between the cartridge and the printer.” HP also stated that its actions were meant to “protect innovation and intellectual property, but also...
