For some time now, rumors of the GPhone (or Google phone) have been circulating around the web.  While it didn't make a whole lot of sense that Google was going to get into the hardware business, especially the highly competitive handset business, it seemed reasonable that Google had an interest in the handheld market for obvious reasons, not the least of which is the huge potential in search.  Though, as we came to find out, it wasn't so much the hardware but the "platform" that Google was interested in.  Tomorrow (9/23) will bring a lot more clarity to Google's play in the handset business, according to Time, as the first ever Google Andriod operating...

In July, Symantec opened its 2009 security products to public beta, promising that they would no longer be the performance hogs they have been in the past. You may know that Symantec's latest versions of their security products have been criticized over their memory footprint and CPU usage. Of course, there's also the activation issue (the software must be activated), but that's another point of contention. So this year Symantec focused on speed and resources, calling it a "zero-impact" performance goal. And on Tuesday Symantec announced the launch of its 2009 line, highlighting the following bullet points in a press release: Light on Resources: As we said this is one of the biggest complaints...

We have explained in numerous articles in the past that the bulk of GPU sales are made in the form of ether IGPs (Integrated Graphics Processors) or affordable, mainstream graphics cards. As powerful and exciting as the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 or GeForce GTX 280 cards may be, AMD and NVIDIA simply don't sell as many flagship products as they do mainstream cards.It is because of this fact that both companies consistently refresh their mainstream offerings every few months or so, and continually push new features and performance down their respective product lines. As many of you may have expected, since AMD recently released the RV770 GPU, which is the foundation of the Radeon HD 4800 series, a... Read more...

You may have grand visions of owning an Optimus Maximus but we'd caution that there are likely more practical uses of your hard-earned cashola, rather than splurging on frivelous things like a keyboard with independent displays for each key.  And with pricing well north of $1800, you can't be serious, right?  For a keyboard?  Hello??  We don't care how many languages it can be programmed to use.  It better make margaritas and then some, for that kind of money.  How about something a bit more down to earth, like a this sleek new keyboard from Logitech?  Oh yeah, its keys light up too and it's only 79 bucks.FREMONT, Calif. — Sept. 2, 2008 — To help you find the...
