Mobile is clearly the future when it comes to Web, communications, and potentially even photography. So, it makes sense to assume that shopping is going to gravitate towards mobile as well. That's where a new app from New York-based Jello Labs comes in. The company suggests that Spring (a nod to Spring Street in Manhattan) will enable each seller on its virtual storefront to have the ability to present wares in a way that suits it. No clothier is alike, so having that level of customization is vital. The app will allow customers to buy from within it, with Spring keeping a small cut from each purchase. Importantly, Spring isn't enabling a platform for reviews or communications; it'll be the brand's... Read more...
Gigabyte is so enthused by Intel's upcoming P45 chipset, it flew a multi-national crew of media from their respective home bases to its own headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan for two days of hands-on testing. During the event, Gigabyte gave us access to four SKUs based on P45 and an early look at a fifth extreme series board that will show off the P45’s flexibility in a $300+ package.We’ll get the bad news out of the way first. Because Intel hasn’t yet launched the P45 chipset (Gigabyte predicted the official unveiling will take place at Computex during the first week of June), none of the benchmarks we ran were allowed to be published—nor should they be, since all of the P45 boards made available...

Enthusiasts love high-end hardware, and when it comes to Intel chipsets, that means the X48 and X38 Express platforms. The 910GL Express sits at the polar opposite of the company’s lineup, shoring up sales of entry-level systems where price is the principal consideration. In between, you have a massive list of discrete and integrated chipsets with mainstream appeal. These are Intel’s best sellers—the platforms you can find in everything from sub-$100 value boards to $200+ prosumer offerings. The P35, in particular, is a solid win for Intel. From Gigabyte’s $75 P35-S3G to DFI’s $230 LanParty P35 T2R, the mid-range chipset is incredibly flexible because it supports the most popular enthusiast... Read more...
While I use a Time Warner service, this may be a step in the right direction for content providers. Allowing users a broader line of options. TiVo Inc. said on Monday it hopes to start testing its first integrated digital video recorder service with Comcast Corp., the leading U.S. cable operator, this spring, two years after they reached an agreement to develop the service. The companies had signed a deal in March 2005 to offer Comcast subscribers the option to download TiVo's DVR software and interface to their cable set-top boxes. The two companies demonstrated the service for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on... Read more...
It's another year for AMD, and the folks over at AMD Zone have a talk with AMD's Damon Muzny about the chip company's plans for 2006. Going a little beyond AMD, Damon also discusses his thoughts on Intel's Netburst architecture, and addresses the rumor of DDR3 appearing with their AM2 socket. "Clearly AMD has done a greater job than ever with K8, where K7 eventually fell short it has succeeded. But with the hype streaming out, with a product that Intel is showing that should come out this time, AMD will be at a critical juncture to show that K8 was no one hit wonder, but that they will continue to take the lead and if Intel...

The Springdale Showdown Which board should you "spring" for? Brought to you by Robert Maloney July 10, 2003           This is the kind of article that PC Hardware Tech Editors live for, not only a simple one-on-one comparison, but a full-blown, knock-em-down, street fight for bragging rights.  Actually, we think round-ups like this are similar to a beauty pageant.  Sure, there's plenty of good-lookers on the stage, but which of them has that special something which will distinguish them from the rest?  Bikini jokes aside, it's what separates the stellar candidates from the mundane, that really makes for an interesting showcase,...
