It simply had to happen at some point. There's 3D cinemas, 3D HDTVs, and now, the 3D PC is upon us. NVIDIA and Asus are teaming up to make an early push into a market that will almost definitely explode over the coming months and years, laying down a few ground rules about what it takes to call a new PC a "3D PC." We... Read more...
Like it or not, the Tablet PC is taking over the computer industry. The iPad arguably sparked the revolution, and now there's options from Fusion Garage, Asus and even MSI on the table. Yes, even MSI. Today, the company revealed that they too would be producing a Tablet PC, with the 10" Wind Pad to be their first. Designed for low-power draw... Read more...
In case you haven't noticed, very few netbooks have ever shipped with an optical drive. You've either had to get a more expensive ultraportable, a thin-and-light or an external ODD in order to have the ability to read/burn a disc while using a compact mobile computer. There's now a good chance that the trend may be... Read more...
The Computex trade show has begun in Taiwan, and Asus is one of the first companies out of the gate with new releases. The company that's known for starting the netbook craze has yet to really approach another craze (the e-reader), but that changed today. The EeeTablet was introduced as the company's first offering in this product category,... Read more...
In addition to offering its own eBook reader, Barnes & Noble plans to compete with Apple in the eBook market by offering its free BN eReader app for iPad. With the app, customers will be able to shop in the Barnes & Noble eBookstore, access their personal Barnes & Noble digital library across a number of... Read more...
Secondary LCD monitors are growing in popularity. Mimo Monitors seems to come out with a new version every couple of months, and more companies are beginning to create similar rivals. And Samsung, for example, is taking the product category to an entirely different platform. Most of these USB-driven, secondary monitors are around 7" diagonal;... Read more...
Remember the JooJoo? What started out as the CrunchPad eventually became Fusion Garage's JooJoo, a massive tablet PC that drawfs the iPad, plays Flash video but has yet to sell more than a handful of units worldwide. The lack of marketing has really hurt the product, and Apple coming out with something similar surely... Read more...
With the growing popularity of Apple's iPad, we figured it wouldn't take long before other companies got into the mix. The day before Computex 2010, Asus introduced the Eee Pad, a Windows based tablet PC that is sure to shake up the mobile market and give potential iPad owners something to think about. Asus offers two... Read more...
A good bit of time has passed since Skype launched a dedicated application for Apple's iPhone OS. Last March, diehard VOIP users were elated to finally have their favorite calling program available with just a single finger tap, but one huge problem remained: you still needed a Wi-Fi hotspot in order to make or receive a call. Since that time,... Read more...
It has been about two months since NVIDIA officially unveiled their first pair of DirectX 11 graphics cards based on the highly anticipated Fermi architecture, the flagship GeForce GTX 480 and the GeForce GTX 470. As is typically the case, when NVIDIA--or ATI for that matter-- releases a new high-end GPU, lower-end derivatives are eventually... Read more...
MSI has been producing all-in-one desktops for awhile now, including a few models with full 1080p touch panels. But with 3D seemingly taking over the world, the company needed to make a move in that direction in order to stay on the bandwagon. Today, the world's first multi-touch 24" Full HD 3D all-in-one PC is being introduced, with the Wind... Read more...
Wow. That's really all there is to say about this. With Apple's iPad leading to a crazy amount of interest in tablets, HP's recent acquisition of Palm and their WebOS and Lenovo's fantastic recent quarter, there's been a lot of wild stuff going down in the tech sector. But who saw this coming? Lenovo, which made a big... Read more...
There are people who will opt for a tablet after the iPad's success, and there are those who insist that a dedicated QWERTY keyboard is necessary for their use. And then there are those who will split the difference. Gigabyte is taking their opportunity at Computex to introduce one of those split-personality... Read more...
Many could argue that the last thing the world needs is another e-book reader, but we aren't yet in that camp. Amazon's Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook could use the competition, and Acer is a solid name in the industry with what appears to be a solid idea of how they plan to change it up (with "it" being the e-reader market). The company... Read more...
