• Sony's new X-Series touchscreen Walkmen are lookin' kinda good

    Sony’s dropped a solid-looking touchscreen Walkman line with the X-Series. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the finish (looks a bit like the kitchen counter), but these tiny Sony players always make up for kind of standard looks with a really polished feel. It comes in 16GB and 32GB flavors, prices to be determined, and does what you’d expect regarding YouTube and that sort… Read More

  • Hands-on with the Sony VAIO P

    My, oh my. The Sony VAIO P is a popular netbook. After using some Peter Ha-taught ninja skills, I made my way through the crowd to this tiny netbook. Overall, the netbook feels Sony solid. The nub was a tad finicky but it works. The resolution though is astoundingly high on the small screen. I love small font but at the default setting it was too small for me. Thankfully the P Series does… Read More

  • Sony's P-series Vaios are sexy little things

    So these little P-series things are looking kind of weird, and kind of hot. I’m being pulled in two different directions. The screen aspect ratio is ridiculous: at 8″ and 1600×768 it’s just over 2:1, which is… pretty freakin wide. They may be tiny, but they’ve got guts: they’ll run Vista and they’ve got GPS built-in, but it looks like… Read More

  • Damn! Panasonic releases 1/3" thick HDTV

    Panasonic seemed to be just going through the motions at first, and I had decided that a certain covered-up thing thing was just a barrier to block over-eager photographers from spying their new portable Blu-Ray player. No! It was a one-third-of-an-inch-thin television. The guy unveiled it at the last second and gave pretty much no info at all. It was about 40 inches, and people kept wanging… Read More

  • Those are MY hands on the Blu-Ray thing, Engadget, just for the record

    I was just fondling the world-first Panasonic portable Blu-Ray player and getting it on video, and lots of people were taking pictures all around me. And when I start uploading the video, I find I’ve been scooped! Oh no! Well, at least I got scooped by the official blog partner of CES, bless their hearts. Wait! That looks a lot like my jacket! Yes – and those are unmistakably my… Read More
