We have already given you glimpses of AMD's ATI Eyefinity technology running on more than three screens on a few occasions in the past, but we haven't had the ability to do any hands-on with the technology up to this point because the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition and the requisite software wasn't quite ready yet. Well, it's here now. And we'll be able to give you the full scoop very soon... In the meantime, we wanted to show a few examples of the 6-screen Eyefinity setup we're working with.

You know, it's not often we get to bestow upon you words of pure wisdom.  Sure, we provide detailed, timely news, product and technology analysis but really, we're not in the business of covering your backside.  That's what Moms are for or your personal Wingman or Wingwoman, as the case may be.  That said, we'll give you a bit of advice for this fine Friday... If you see a dude dressed up like this and looking seriously pleased about it, coming your way, we'd suggest you run (don't walk) the other way.  Let's see if your instincts are in proper attenuation tonight. Can you tell us, who is the MAN in the middle of this fab tour shot?They're like Gangstas but geekier......

We know you're probably getting a little fed-up as of late, with words that start with a small "i" in front of them.  However, even with that realization, we have to steal just a little slice of your bandwidth, if you're an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad owner or are in possession of anything that will install an Apple mobile app.  When you're on the road and can't get your fix of HH, don't fret.  It's a cold, lifeless world out there without your daily dose of Hot Hardware, we understand, but we're here looking out for your best interest as always.  Now, you don't have to walk around uninformed, left flat, without entertainment and miserably disconnected from all the pure, unadulterated...

2009. It's the end of a decade, but just the beginning of an era. A lot has changed since Y2K frightened the world and then made us all look like fools for being worried, and it's safe to say that 2009 ushered in some of the most advanced technology this world has ever seen. More so than in years past, this year's tech innovations had a more direct impact on the average Joe. It used to be that technology was most appreciated by enthusiasts--nerds and geeks who could appreciate the thinking and planning that went into such things as iPods and cell phones.Today though, moms and grandmothers are just as likely to be taking advantage of technology. Just think of the Peek--an email only... Read more...

We sit down with our buddies from TechVi, to talk graphic cards and Nettops this time around. First on the list? ATI's gigantic Radeon 5970, which other than topping performance charts, also tips the price scales more than most cards.

Also, Adobe has added hardware acceleration support in its latest build of Flash, which is perfect for lower-end computers to play back hi-def Flash content.

January 2009 marked HotHardware.com's 10th year of existence. Over the years we've gone through many site revisions but today we're giving you what I feel you'll find is our best site engine yet.  It's hard to believe actually that we've been on the net this long - long before the word "blog" was hip or even understood and well before the many of the computing, tech and gadget sites that exist today.  And what have we learned over the years?  I'd like to think we've honed our coverage for you to the extent that we're hopefully giving you a healthy dose of what you find most interesting and even some stuff that perhaps you hadn't thought as much about before but in a related way...
