HP used the Mobile World Congress event currently taking place in Barcelona, Spain to launch what may be one of the company’s most exciting notebooks ever, the Spectre X360. Like the previous-generation Spectre, the new X360 is a thin and light premium, multi-mode convertible ultrabook, but HP has paid special attention to almost every detail on this new device and improved upon its predecessor in virtually every way. HP worked closely with Microsoft and its hardware partners to choose the right components and optimize the software on the Spectre X360 and the company made some practical decisions... Read more...
BMW is hard at work trying to end parking lot mishaps. The answer, of course, lies in sensors that will be able to detect when you're about to make a terrible mistake; like trying to squeeze in between another car and a concrete beam or backing up just a little to far as you ram into a wall. Incidents like that will ruin your day. They're also on the verge of being avoidable with BMW's ActiveAssist parking technology. It's part of a 360-degree collision avoidance system in which four advanced laser scanners record the environment and identify impediments like columns, such as the ones that... Read more...

You can only tease so long before it's time to put up or shut up, and after creating a bit of buzz over its glass-covered Envy 14 Spectre laptop with sneak peeks dating back to before CES, Hewlett-Packard has made its newest Ultrabook available to purchase online starting at $1,400. That's well above the sub-$1,000 price point Intel would like to see Ultrabook models check in at, though not grossly overpriced for a higher end model. A base configuration comes with: Intel Core i5 2467M processor 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory 128GB solid state drive 4-cell battery 14-inch diagonal display shoved into a... Read more...
It's no surprise that a ton of PC makers have some things up their sleeves. After all, CES 2012 begins next week. But it looks like HP is getting a jump on the others, with the Spectre being teased ahead of the show's official start. Ultrabooks got their start late last year, but it's pretty clear that CES 2012 will be the real launch pad for the next wave of them. The Spectre looks to be about as thin and light as they come, and while the teaser doesn't give up much, there does seem to be a lot of focus on glass (the display?). It looks like there's a display output and a couple of USB ports in... Read more...
