The Savvio 15K drive was... Read more...
Of course, we're talking about video game sales in 2006. Fine by me. The Department of Labor and NASA aren't nearly as much fun as Madden Football. In all, hardware sales surged 43 percent to $4.6 billion in 2006 and software sales rose 6 percent to $6.5 billion. Sales of accessories jumped 19 percent to $1.5 billion for the year. Total U.S. sales rose 28 percent to $3.7 billion during December, including a 59 percent jump in hardware sales to $1.6 billion and a more than 5 percent increase in software sales to $1.7 billion. Sales of accessories, which include controllers and memory cards for gaming systems, rose 47 percent to $451 million. Read why you only leave the house to buy video... Read more...
When Shuttle first thrust small form factor systems upon the Do-It-Yourself crowd in 2001, they were deemed niche products that wouldn't likely appeal to the masses, due to inherent expandability deficiencies and limited feature-sets relative to full-sized desktop systems.  Over the last half decade though, interest in small form factor systems has steadily increased, and the mini-machines have evolved into something far more appealing than many users had ever expected.  Modern small form factor machines now have feature-sets that rival many full-sized desktop systems, and expandability is only limited by what can be physically crammed into the enclosure. Shuttle in particular has... Read more...

The contest will award up to $1 million in prizes to the PC designer and manufacturer that designs and builds the smallest and most stylish... Read more...
Smaller, faster, better, that's the way of the world when it comes to Semiconductors and Consumer Electronics.  The Inq has a bit of detail on a Wireless client that fits in the palm of your hand. "ISRAELI COMPANY Compulab recently announced a computer that manages to cram a complete PDA into a device two-thirds the size of a credit card. The CM-X270L measures just 4.4 x 6.6 cm. In comparison, a MiniPCI wireless card is 6.0 x 4.4 cm - just half a centimetre thinner. In this space, the CM-X270L somehow manages fits in an Intel (should that be Marvell?) XScale chip running Windows CE or Linux, half a gig of flash, 128MB of RAM, AC'97 sound and a Philips 802.11b wireless interface,... Read more...
In a follow-up to the distinctive 5.0MP dual-lens EasyShare V570, Kodak has announced the new 6.1MP EasyShare V610. The dual Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon zoom lenses are still carried over with the V610, but this time one has a focal length of 38-114mm while the second lens goes from 130-380mm. The V610 looks strikingly similar to its predecessor, but is slightly larger to accommodate the new 2.8" LCD screen (up from 2.5" on the V570). As with most new P&S digital cameras released these days, the V610 has the ability to capture 640x480 video at 30FPS with sound. And speaking of video, the camera also features the ability to zoom up to its... Read more...
SFF vendor Shuttle is spreading word that the company will be introducing a new SFF platform that is even smaller than their conventional XPC systems. Aimed squarely at the living room, it is likely that these new systems will place a large emphasis on aesthetics and low-noise such that the PC belnds nicely with the other home theater components in the room. Unfortunately, no significant details have been shared thus far, though we imagine the rumor mill will be coming up to speed shortly."We have introduced the world's first SFF PC five years ago and thus have invented the small form factor. The time to set another milestone has arrived: a new form-factor will help Shuttle to make the new Shuttle... Read more...
Some of you will remember the little bit of information we posted on this nifty device a while back. Well today Epiacenter has the product, and are ready to share their opinion on the world's smallest PSU. How small is it? It's really, really small. "It's just a little bit larger then a normal size ATX connector but it's more powerful then an ordinary ATX connector and best of all, it's yellow. After some time of reasearching, the guys from Ituner managed to create what is now the smallest PSU on the world."And more importantly, it seems to be very reliable.... Read more...
Well folks, it's time to cover what's been going on this weekend. Sony has decided to stop(temporarily) including their controversial software with their CDs. No word on what kind of software they'll include next. In a related subject, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has dissected part of the Sony-BMG EULA. Wonderful stuff, really. Anyone remember the good old days when your buddy would put a couple songs on a tape for you, and no one even cared? These days it seems like it was only a wonderful dream. In a time with enforced restrictions, secret software, and machines that can decipher the latest Pop Hit, the music scene doesn't seem to have the same magic it once did.

When we last checked in with Shuttle back in April, we took a look at their current entry for the Intel platform, which was based on the latest chipset at the time, the i925XE.  Our introduction for that piece went something along the lines of how the SFF market typically lags behind the full-sized board market, but how Shuttle was right on the cutting edge.  Well, it's been no more than 12 weeks since we wrote that article, and Shuttle is right back in the mix with the SD31P.  The SD31P utilizes the "P" chassis, so visually speaking it should look the same on the outside as their last few entries.  The FD31 motherboard, however, is based on the brand-new i945G chipset,...

In what seems to be an ever expanding market, we've got yet another look at a new Small Form Factor system on HotHardware.  This time the system comes to us by way of Foxconn.  The same company that's been putting their stamp on motherboards and other OEM hardware since 1991.  Following their recent successful foray into the retail market with their own branded motherboards, Foxconn has a new offering pulling together their motherboard architecture skills with their flair for PC enclosures.  The results, as you will see, appear to be right on target. Foxconn's initial entry is called the e-bot, which arrived on our doorstop in a bright orange and blue box, similar to... Read more...

Welcome back friends :)  Sorry about the late start, I am still feeling under the weather and slept most of the day.  So, before it gets much later, let's get down to business... OCZ PC3500 Enhanced Bandwidth 1GB (512x2) Dual Channel Kit @ TheCrucible.ca "The EB technology is very effective. Overclocking results from these particular PC3500 sticks was very good. Reaching near PC4000 spec without changing the default timings is always a plus. OCZ has definitely built a lot of head room into this kit. The performance at 500Mhz is also the best we have ever seen. Out scoring anything we have tested prior to these. OCZ has a real winner with their enhanced bandwidth memory." 80mm... Read more...
The CF-S868 Small Form Factor PC Shuttle's Got Some Competition... By, Marco Chiappetta August 28, 2002 After laying your eyes on any of Shuttle's initial small form factor mini systems, you can't help but want one.  Their compact, aluminum design and high level of integration make them suitable for a multitude of tasks.  They're also just plain cool to look at!  There was one notable feature missing from their first few SFF systems though, an AGP slot.  Well, the product we'll be looking at today solves that problem.  The CF-868 "e-cube", also sold under the name "Thunderbolt", is a small form factor PC for the Pentium 4 with an AGP slot!  This...
