Motorola isn't the same company you once knew, or they won't be shortly. After bringing their cellphone unit back from the grave in recent years, the company is planning to finalize a split on Jan. 4, 2011. The company's board recently approved the separation of Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc. (“Motorola Mobility”) from Motorola, Inc. through a tax-free dividend involving the distribution of all Motorola Mobility common stock held by Motorola to Motorola stockholders and has also approved a reverse stock split of shares of Motorola common stock following the distribution. That sounds like a bunch of business-babble to most of you, but here's what will result from the split:    ... Read more...
Earlier this year, we attended the Asus 2010 CES Event in Las Vegas. While there, we caught a glimpse of several upcoming notebooks the hardware giant had in store. One of the most anticipated products we saw was in the Republic of Gamers line up. Dubbed the G73JH, it possessed a list of impressive specifications and an aggressive, stealth fighter design that spoke directly to enthusiasts. Thankfully, this powerhouse of a notebook made it to our lab and we had a chance to put it through our own testing. Ever since CES, we've been waiting to find out if the G73JH performed as good as it looked. Equally important, we aimed to determine where it fits in a market bursting at the seams with gaming...

At a time when economists and TV pundits are still more likely to characterise the economy as "coasting along the bottom" rather than "recovering," Intel's Q3 results have rocketed past the predictions of even the most optimistic Wall Street analysts. The company's Q4 predictions are similarly rosy—if there's ever been a time when it's been good to be king, the company clearly feels it's now. The very strength of Santa Clara's announcement fueled analyst worries that meteoric results in Q3 could quickly fall to earth in Q4, a worry Intel has been quick to assuade. First, let's do the numbers. For the third quarter of 2009, Intel reported total revenue of $9.4 billion (up $1.4 billion from Q2)... Read more...
If Asus doesn't make a machine you like (or are at least fond of in some way), you aren't looking hard enough. As the company famous for putting the netbook (and thus, the Eee PC) on the map continues to broaden its horizons in the notebook market, it's taking a breather from shipping new "Seashell" machines to introduce a horse of a startlingly different color. The Eee PC T91 is unlike any Eee PC we've seen before, namely because the screen can be spun around and flipped down. tablet PC style. This so-called "netvertible" sector is still in its earliest stages, making the T91 one of the first netbooks available that also doubles as a full-fledged Tablet PC. Furthermore, it's one of the few netbooks... Read more...
One of the ways AMD is able to test and qualify ATI Mobility Radeon GPUs, without having to design and build numerous mobile reference cards that fit in multiple notebook form factors, is to produce fully-loaded, custom reference cards that'll fit into standard PCI Express x16 slots. The cards won't be used in any actual retail product, but they allow AMD to test all of the various features and functionality, and experiment with clock speeds and voltages to fine tune and balance performance, thermal output, and power consumption. ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4000 Series What you see pictured here is just such a card. The item pictured below is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670, PCI Express-based... Read more...
Back during the Consumer Electronics Show this past January, AMD announced a host of new Mobility Radeon GPUs in the ATI Radeon HD 4600 and HD 4800 families. And today, from the CeBIT trade show in Germany, AMD is announcing a few more additions to their mobile GPU line-up, the Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and HD 4830.The Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and HD 4830 are not based on a brand new architecture, but one aspect that makes them standout from all of AMD's other mobile GPUs is that they are manufactured using a more advanced 40nm process.      Making the transition to a 40nm manufacturing process, allowed AMD to engineer a chip comprised of nearly the same number of transistors as the...

What is a mobile provider to do when only 12 percent of its customers own phones capable of taking advantage of data plans? Certainly having exclusive U.S. rights to arguably the most advanced--or at least the sexiest--smartphone is a good start. And the iPhone has been big a boost to AT&T's sales in 2007. But by the close of 2007, AT&T only had 9 million subscribers to its 3G services. It would seem that you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. But what if you make the water tastier? "AT&T's cellular Internet access will be more than five times faster in 2009 than it is this year, the company's mobility chief Ralph de la Vega said today at Morgan Stanley's annual... Read more...

Good evening ladies and gents, need some night reading material? After a long day of fighting the Windows ME Operating System, my head is just about fried. I'm sure the blue screen of death will haunt my dreams tonight.

Mobile Graphics technology is advancing at a fevered pace. In a little over a year, the once dominant Mobility Radeon 9600 was eclipsed by the Mobility Radeon 9700. Then, the MR 9700 was surpassed by the Mobility Radeon 9800, which itself was recently eclipsed by the Mobility Radeon X800.  ATI's mobile GPUs went from 4, to 8, to 12 pixel pipelines, they now have essentially the same feature sets as their desktop equivalents, and they have frame buffers as large as 256MB. And these are only the high-end mobile products to come from ATI. They also released a few mid-ranges mobile GPUs, namely the Mobility Radeon X600 and X300.  In addition, NVIDIA also released their own group of mobile... Read more...
