Spam: you know it, you hate it.  Who the heck actually reads this stuff and thus makes it profitable for people to send? Arstechnica has an interesting story out about how this is finally the year in which spam will become the dominant form of e-mail: "New research from IDC claims that this will be the year in which spam outnumbers person-to-person e-mail for the first time. Anyone have a spare ark handy? Actually, IDC suggests that the "ark" is already here. Users have been migrating to instant messaging (IM) and voice chat (using cheap phone calls or free VoIP clients like Skype) for some time, and e-mail appears to be losing a bit of its luster as spam makes it increasingly unwieldy for...

Every so often someone predicts a breakthrough in "electronic paper," which could supplant backlit screens for reading text and looking at pictures. Power consumption would be greatly reduced and readability improved. A prototype for a full color version of E Ink's electronic paper being readied for next year might be the tipping point. If it can achieve that, McQuivey said, E Ink could threaten to displace the cheap and ubiquitous liquid-crystal displays (LCDs), while revolutionizing how we think about reading. Electronic billboards, for example, would no longer need to be bulky or costly to erect. They could be hung from just about any wall or folded into the back of a car for... Read more...
It looks like the trend of making more energy efficient PCs has spread from common laptops, desktops and servers, all the way up to supercomputers.  The system is designed for defense and scientific research. "Called Maxwell, the computer has been built at the University of Edinburgh and uses field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) in place of conventional processors. Its Scottish developers believe Maxwell represents a new generation of compact and energy-efficient computers. Unlike ordinary general-purpose processors, FPGA chips can be programmed to perform very specific tasks. Once that programming is accomplished, FPGA chips can be much faster than performing the same tasks in software... Read more...
Hello Everyone.  We've just made a new article live featuring OCZ's brand-new Flex XLC Water-Cooled CAS-3 DDR2-800 2GB hybrid memory kit. Here's a snip from the piece: "With the release of their Flex XLC modules, OCZ is offering a product which is substantially more flexible than most other enthusiast class memory modules on the market. They can be air-cooled or water-cooled. They'll run at lower clock speeds with tight timings, or at high clock speeds with more relaxed timings. The Flex XLC modules are unique, efficient, and from what we've seen thus far, the pricing is in line with other high-end modules."... Read more...
For reasons unknown, a good portion of the enthusiast market still thinks that memory cooling is a fruitless effort. Many high-end users still believe that memory chips run plenty cool, and that putting heat spreaders and heatsinks on them is a superficial effort at best, and that they don't provide any major benefits. The fact that nearly all high-end memory module and graphics card memory manufacturers use some sort of additional cooling doesn't seem to matter. For a long time, I was a member of this camp as well. The first memory modules with heat-spreaders showed themselves in 2000-2001, right about the time that the industry was shifting from SDRAM to DDR SDRAM, and Rambus RDRAM... Read more...
Some of you may say "that just ain't right!" and we'd have to agree completely.  However the folks at Samsung think there's a market for a USB-only LCD panel.  Here's the G2 from the folks at EverythingUSB.  Ermm... They would know, we suppose.   "The catch is that Samsung does not say how they intend to process the graphics. Odds are the graphics for the USB display will be processed on the CPU. That means less performance for both graphically demanding applications and the PC as a whole will take a performance hit. The CPU is not the place to process graphics that require lots of floating point operations that the CPU is not designed to run." Ya... Read more...

When you think of the "ultimate computer upgrade", visions of powerful graphics cards, a blistering fast CPU, a spacious-high density hard drive or perhaps another Gig or two of memory to feed your ever-hungry OS might come to mind.  On the surface, these are all very reasonable options, and depending on your specific usage model, indeed they all might offer significant value, enhancing your overall computing experience.  Though we would offer a different perspective perhaps. If you haven't recently considered the screen you're looking at all this wonderful new technology through, you're probably doing yourself a disservice.  We'd offer you should think... Read more...
Are LCD manufacturers colluding to keep prices artificially high? If they are, they're doing a crummy job; LCD prices are plummeting. Regulatory agencies in Japan and The US are looking at Samsung, NEC, Sharp, AU Optronics, LG Phillips, and Chi Mei Optoelectronics anyway: The companies are being investigated for allegedly curbing their output for the purpose of keeping LCD prices from falling too quickly, something that has been a great concern for some electronics manufacturers as of late. Sony's president Stan Glasgow told reporters last week that prices for LCD televisions will drop 25 to 30 percent this year, a more drastic drop than... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that Dell has just signed a contract with Samsung to deliver a 27-inch widescreen LCD which will then be branded as a Dell model. Although details of the exact model is not yet known, DigiTimes assumes the model in question will be similar to a unit which is already being offered. The Samsung LTM270M1 is equipped with a resolution of 1920x1200 with a 6ms response time, contrast ratio of 3000:1, and a brightness of 500 nits. One can only hope that the upcoming model raises the bar in each category and adds such features as HDCP support and possibly even an HDMI port. Regardless, time will tell as we only need to wait until January to see what tricks Dell has up its... Read more...
The winner in the plasma/LCD wars to supply you with a television is coming to a head. Big, high resolution LCD screens are forcing plasma televisions into the huge screen corner. And the price of all of it is coming down --way down. It is technologically difficult and often costly for plasma makers to give a full high-definition function to models with a screen size of less than 50 inches, while LCD TV makers are aggressively promoting full HD models in that segment although prices are generally higher. "This Christmas season probably is the last chance for (plasma TV makers) to promote 42-inch models. By this time next year probably there will be no price difference between plasma and LCD TVs,"...

Samsung is trying to marry nanotube technology to LCD displays and make great looking, inexpensive screens. They're in a footrace with all the other manufacturers to determine what kind of technology will ultimately sit in your living room and bore or entertain you: The prototype essentially represents the marriage of two separate avenues of TV technology and could help dramatically lower the cost of LCD TVs in the future. Samsung has already been experimenting with carbon nanotube TVs called field-emitter displays, or FEDs. In such TVs, thousands of nanotubes shoot electrons onto a phosphorescent screen to illuminate images. Carbon nanotubes... Read more...

We've evaluated a myriad of Asus-built products over the years here at HotHardware.com, including countless motherboards, graphics cards, notebooks, and optical drives.  But to date, we have only taken a look at one of the company's LCD monitors, the PM17TU. There is a good reason for this, however, as Asus has only been selling their own LCD monitors for a relatively short time.  We found the 17" PM17TU to be a well-built display and praised its 3ms response time, but ultimately we wished for a widescreen variant with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Asus recognized the need for such a display and released the slightly larger widescreen we'll be looking at here, the PW191. ... Read more...
In today's HotHardware Analysis we've taken a look at Asus' new 19" Widescreen LCD and though a bit on the pricey side, it also definitely lives up to typical Asus high quality standards, so you get what you pay for. "Asus recognized the need for such a display and released the slightly larger widescreen we'll be looking at here, the PW191. As its name implies, the PW191 is a 19" widescreen LCD. In addition to the increased screen real estate offered by the larger LCD panel, Asus has designed the PW191 with a number of sought after features, like an anti-reflection glare type panel, built-in speakers, and touch sensitive controls. This isn't the largest LCD you'll ever lay your... Read more...
