  • The Life and Times of Windows XP
    The Life and Times of Windows XP:

    If you’d been alive in 1924 and had enjoyed the comedy stylings of a young Vaudevillian named George Burns, you never would have believed he’d still be packing them in seventy years later. In 1963, you might have dug the music that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were making, but the idea they’d still be touring almost forty-five years later would have sounded insane. Those of us who watched Dennis Eckersley pitch for the Red Sox in 1978 would have scoffed at the notion that he’d be playing for Beantown once again in 1998.

  • Ultrabook Makers Not Learning Lessons of the MacBook Air
    Ultrabook Makers Not Learning Lessons of the MacBook Air:

    Ever since Intel announced its Ultrabooks initiative last spring, I’ve been lusting after this new line of super-slim, fast-resuming, and long-lasting laptops. Now that the first Ultrabooks are finally shipping, though, the bloom is off the rose. These svelte systems were supposed to be the PC equivalents the MacBook Air; sex appeal with a Start menu. But like Lady Gaga trying to channel Marilyn Monroe, Ultrabook makers get the look mostly right but so many little things wrong.

  • iPhone 4S vs. Android Phones: What’s Better for You?
    iPhone 4S vs. Android Phones: What’s Better for You?:

    You know your smartphone is doing well when 4 million people buy it in the first weekend and it temporarily sells out on all three of your carrier partners. (You can order one now from AT&T and Verizon, but Sprint is still catching up.) The overwhelming demand for the iPhone 4S is understandable, given the much-talked-about Siri voice-controlled assistant, as well as the device’s faster dual-core processor and fantastic 8-megapixel camera. But today’s top Android phones—such as the Samsung Galaxy S II—offer plenty of features you won’t find on Apple’s blockbuster sequel. How do you know which side to choose? Here’s my breakdown.

    Dell Launches XPS 14z Laptop Ahead Of Ultrabook Assault | ITProPortal.com:

    Dell announced a new laptop the XPS 14Z in which engineers from the Austin-based manufacturer have managed to squeeze a 14-inch display into the space for a 13-inch panel thanks to an edge to edge, quasi borderless design.

  • Tablets and laptops are on a ‘collision course’
    Tablets and laptops are on a ‘collision course’:

    But you knew that already, right? Today, DisplaySearch issued the most unusual of tablet forecasts — one that looks at the totality of the market and takes Windows into consideration. Gartner and IDC use a separate “media tablet” category for Android tablets and iPad, based on the operating system, choosing to classify “Tablet PCs” running Windows as personal computers. DisplaySearch has more sensibly made the designation around processors — ARM and x86 — which better defines the market for the future, and isn’t the future what a forecast is all about?

    Dell Latitude ST business tablets breaks cover – Liliputing:

    Dell has posted a video on its Malaysian website showing a new Windows tablet called the Dell Latitude ST. We’d first heard about the tablet this summer, thanks to a leaked product roadmap, but we’ve known for a while that Dell was working on a new Windows tablet. Now it seems clear that the company is targeting enterprise customers.

  • Asus previews quad-core Transformer tablet | ZDNet UK
    Asus previews quad-core Transformer tablet | ZDNet UK:

    Asus’s Transformer tablet — which converts quickly between a slim 10-inch Android tablet and a netbook — has been quietly successful, and the Taiwanese company is preparing a more advanced version called Transformer Prime. This will be the first tablet to use Nvidia’s impressive quad-core Tegra 3 processor, code-named Kal-El. It may also be the first to run Android 4, which is known by its lumbering code-name Ice Cream Sandwich, though it will initially ship with the Honeycomb version.

  • Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G Laptop Review
    Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G Laptop Review:

    Of all the laptops available at the moment, the two categories that interest me most are ultraportables and full desktop replacements. Ultraportables can be incredibly useful for life on the move due to their small size and incredibly light weight. For regular laptops to be useful though for anything more than light use is unusual however as they have neither the advantages of an ultraportable nor a desktop replacement.
