Someone inform the grim reaper that he can officially stop ringing the death knell for Windows 7-based tablets. Admittedly, things weren't looking so hot when HP seemingly abandoned plans to release its Windows 7 "Slate," and even Microsoft gave us cause for concern when the Redmond outfit dumped its dual-screen Courier tablet into the Recycle...

Here's a tip: if you leave a major corporation like IBM to go work for a major corporation like Apple, and it makes major news waves, you probably don't ever want to screw up. Not that you would ever want to screw up while working at Apple anyway, but particularly not if you find yourself in that situation. A few years ago, an executive by... Read more...
Out of nowhere, HP CEO has resigned. Quit. Left the company. Headed for other pastures. Late on a Friday, after most investors had headed out for the weekend, Hewlett-Packard quietly dropped a bomb that their CEO was no more. Effective immediately, CEO Mark Hurd no longer has his CEO title, and CEO Cathie Lesjak has been appointed interim... Read more...
It's not easy out there for pre-fab PC makers. You're competing against giants like Dell, HP and Lenovo, and you're trying to sway consumers to purchase your brand even though you aren't running TV ads every half-hour. But when you look at a company like Alienware, you know it's still possible to hold an edge if you carve out your own niche.... Read more...
When HP acquired Palm earlier this year, the webOS community feared the end was in sight. Within days of the acquisition, however, HP put any fears to rest by confirming that it had no plans to abandon webOS or Palm's smartphone business. Instead, HP said that it planned to put webOS in a bunch of other devices such as printers and tablets.... Read more...
And with that, the mystery is solved. Well, at least we think the mystery is solved. This story goes a long way back, all the way to CES 2010. At that show, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer came out onto a stage with an HP-branded tablet PC, which was simply called the "HP Slate" at the time. But then, no one saw or heard... Read more...
A community based website dedicated to the HP Mini, HP Slate, and Compaq mini series of netbooks produced by Hewlett-Packard discovered a recent trademark filing by HP, which might reveal what the OEM plans to call its upcoming tablet. The trademark is for PalmPad, a fitting name considering HP's recent acquisition of Palm. Ever since HP canceled... Read more...
Color e-ink. It's a fairly tale, of sorts. It's a technology that we know exists, and we know that many companies are working on making it into something that can be produced commercially. But today, the only e-paper that exists in the consumer realm is the black/white kind that's found on the NOOK and Kindle. For well over five years, certain... Read more...
The HP-Palm deal, which found HP acquiring Palm earlier this year, will likely go down as one of the most monumental in tech history. Palm used to be a giant, and HP has never been a serious mobile player. Many say the two have little in common, and many wondered why some other company didn't shell out the needed funds to pick up such a intelligence-rich... Read more...
Quanta Computer. You may have never heard of them. You've probably never visited their website. You've definitely never seen an advertisement for their company on the television. So why are they so important? They're the contract notebook computer maker for some of the world's biggest laptop brands, including Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Sony.... Read more...
It may be a done deal, but some former Palm employees aren't singing a positive tune after the HP acquisition. In many cases where one company takes over another (or just buys another to integrate), at least a few positions are eliminated. There's usually never a need for two CEOs, and some of the duplication simply can't be dealt with unless... Read more...
So, the question is: who's not in the music business these days? Apple has their iTunes Music Store and just recently acquired the LaLa streaming service, and HP just shelled out around $30 million to purchase a music streaming site of their own. Microsoft has their Zune subscription service, and then there's Rhapsody, Napster and a whole... Read more...
Who would have guessed years ago that an entire sector of laptops could be created just for education, and then regular consumers would go out and buy them for themselves? That's practically what happened with the OLPC XO and netbook craze, and amazingly, it's all still going strong. HP has been a huge player in the netbook market, and today... Read more...
Look at HP, growing up on us so fast. Buying up other companies at will, toting around the "world's largest PC seller" crown, and now introducing their very first enterprise class all-in-one PC. Believe it or not, we aren't kidding: the HP Compaq 6000 Pro really is the company's first all-in-one PC to go enterprise... Read more...
Not sure if you've noticed, but Linux is quietly gaining steam. Android is becoming a huge mobile OS, Ubuntu is getting more and more attention, and now Linux builds are fetching huge amounts of money from mainstays in the industry. We're talking about Phoenix Technologies, which was recently purchased by HP for a staggering $12 million. Hewlett-Packard,... Read more...
Display Taiwan 2010 has followed Computex in order to keep the trade show floors humming in Taipei, and the panel makers are out in full force showcasing their latest goods. AUO is a company that few people recognize, but that most LCD buyers should be quite familiar with. AUO makes a great many of the panels that end... Read more...
It's a brave new world out there, and while you may not have known it before you started reading this, you'll really need a brave new printer to survive in it. Not really, but that's the idea that Hewlett-Packard would love for you to get. HP does a lot of things, one of which is make loads of printers (and ink boxes)... Read more...
Well, this will surely come as a disappointment to many, and it may honestly make others a bit excited. Hewlett-Packard, who decided to pony up just over $1 billion earlier in the year to acquire Palm and their assets, has now openly stated that the purchase wasn't about cellphones at all. On the surface, this doesn't... Read more...
And just like that, the shakeup at Palm continues. A few days before HP eventually came public with their intentions to acquire the struggling cell phone maker, Michael Abbott, SVP of software and services, decided to bolt for the door. Now, another huge pillar at Palm has decided that the new HP-Palm is no place for him. Matias Duarte is... Read more...
We'd like to say that Foxconn has been under fire for a rash of employee suicides that have occurred this year, but up until now, the company hasn't really been under fire at all, not by those who have the power to make a difference, anyway. It was less than a week ago that we reported another Foxconn worker had fallen from a building to his... Read more...
The subsidized netbook has been an interesting scenario. Some people enjoy the lower up-front costs and don't mind paying monthly for data services, while other think that these netbooks should be given away for free on a data plan since you can't actually take the data plan from PC to PC. Whatever your stance, Verizon Wireless has a new option... Read more...
It's still sinking in that Hewlett-Packard (of all companies) acquired Palm, and while the finalization has yet to occur, it's assumed that the paperwork will be only a formality. Once the companies came out about the news, the biggest question people had was about the future of WebOS, Palm's own mobile OS. WebOS was one of the first major... Read more...
