  • Nuance and BMW vs Ford and Microsoft

    Ford and Microsoft have found great success partnering together on Sync and the rest of the automotive industry have finally taken notice. We’ve taken Sync for a ride or two and know that it works as advertised.

  • AMD specs its new ultrathins, but no pictures yet

    I know, you like posts with pictures in them. Well, too bad! AMD’s new ultrathin platform isn’t quite ready for its close-up yet. If you remember last year, they introduced the dv2 with HP as the first entry in their ultrathin platform, and I liked pretty much everything but the trackpad and the fact that it came with Vista. The new ultrathins are going to be better, faster… Read More

  • AMD simplifies its brand again with "Vision"

    AMD is sort of becoming the Mac of PC hardware. That is to say, they perform well, but in the end want it to be about a final user experience, not a piecemeal selection of parts and capabilities. In this spirit of simplicity, they’re shifting the bulk of their merchandising over from Turion and X4 and all that to three labels under the brand name “Vision.” It reminds me of… Read More

  • Microsoft's new keyboard is thin enough to shave with


    Microsoft Hardware’s new Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard is a sexy little number. And its companion is a sexy little numpad. Thin keyboards tend to have short key throws, which is less comfortable for some, but on the other hand, it’s thin enough to slip into… why not, a manila envelope. Read More

    Bing is an excellent search engine. For one thing the surprising early reviews probably forced Yahoo’s hand as they entered into one of the dumber corporate transactions I’ve ever seen. So, kudos to Bing. Golf clap. Etc. But one thing about Bing really stands out – it may be the best porn search engine ever created (see Badda-Bing Indeed). In private conversations… Read More

  • Sony's newest Blu-ray player: surprisingly feature-rich for the price

    When people ask me what Blu-ray player they should buy, I usually defer, since I don’t own one. But if pressed, I’ll say a PS3. Why not?

Sony’s new BDP-N460, announced today at CEDIA, provides what were once luxuries at what is not quite a bargain price, but at least is very reasonable. Read More
