    HP’s new Sprout hardware is a clip-on 3D webcam

    The Sprout was one of the stranger products in HP’s long history of releases. We called the all-in-one a “bold but goofy experiment” when it was released back in 2014. Three years later, the sentiment stands. The product failed to catch the creative world alight, and yet the company has continued the experiment, releasing a pro version of the system at CES last year. The… Read More

    Nvidia teams up with Acer, Asus and HP to launch 65-inch gaming displays

    If you are tired of that puny 27-inch gaming screen on your desk and you want a more immersive gaming experience on a really big screen — say 65-inches — then Nvidia has something new for you. The company today announced a new hardware initiative with partners Acer, Asus and HP: big format gaming displays (BFGD). The idea here is to take a 65-inch 4K screen with 120Hz HDR support… Read More

    Some HP laptops are hiding a deactivated keylogger

    Researcher Michael Myng found a deactivated keylogger in a piece of software found on over 460 HP laptop models. A full list of affected laptops is here. The keylogger is deactivated by default but could represent a privacy concern if an attacker has physical access to the computer. “Some time ago someone asked me if I can figure out how to control HP’s laptop keyboard… Read More

    Dear Silicon Valley: America’s fallen out of love with you

    Silicon Valley, you used to be the envy of the world. Over the last decade I’ve seen countless cities try to become you. In case you haven’t noticed, though, you’ve changed from hero to villain. You’re too expensive and exclusive for the rest of the world. You’ve moved from icon to joke — the show that bears your name is a cringe-worthy, true-to-life satire. Read More

    HP caters to gaming enthusiasts with new overclockable OMEN X laptops

    HP has been producing some solid gaming hardware as of late — the OMEN 17 laptop I reviewed and the cube desktop built by Maingear are good examples. However, HP has yet to go all out with their OMEN X brand — the “X” denoting the upper echelon of its high-performance brand — until now, with two new laptops. The OMEN X laptop comes in 15-inch and 17-inch… Read More

    HP’s new Nvidia-powered backpack VR PC is designed for work, not play

    HP has a new entrant in that most curious PC niche – the backpack computer. A product of the virtual reality computing wave, the backpack PC provides all the power needed to drive high-quality VR headsets like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but with a form factor that allows the user to roam about untethered. The new HP Z VR Backpack is a bit different from the rest of the field, though… Read More

    Microsoft starts selling developer ‘mixed reality’ headsets online

    Microsoft “mixed reality” headsets are finally available (for developers) on the Microsoft store. The company opened pre-orders for the headset back in May; now developers can get their hands on Acer’s headset for $299 and an HP model for $329. Specs-wise, the two headsets are pretty much identical. Read More

    HP’s Spectre x2 finds its spot as one of the best Windows tablets, for what it’s worth

    The Spectre x2 is what a Surface Pro would feel like with HP’s design cues and a few better specs for the dollar. In fact, most of the Spectre x2’s drawbacks stem from having to squeeze so much into its frame, which is better than having glaring software issues. Nearly free of stutters under heavy workload, Windows 10 remains a smooth experience. Specs of a svelte slate The… Read More
