New site under construction.

I have a new site under construction. In it it contains a troubleshooting section and a tech blog section. Other sections may become available over time. I will also have the technology dictionary expanded.

Windows 7 HP slate canceled.

 Well to almost everyone's dismay the Windows 7 operating system has been taken off of the device. This and the billion dollar acquisition of Palm and their own operating system makes one wonder: "Will they make a weaker cheaper slate?" It's a possibility that they could but no one but HP clearly knows that yet.

 My guess is is that HP decided that it's not the whole Windows experience that people want on a tablet, there's netbooks for that. People that buy the ipad buy it because it is an affordable device, with thousands of applications and long battery life, along with a very simple interface. If HP plays their cards right, we may see open source software for the slate along with less power hungry hardware such as a chipset based on Nvidia's Tegra technology. This is all just theory might I add but the HP slate is still likely to be a device that could bring the ipad to it's dirty knees.

Hopefully and just maybe HP will release a cheaper tablet that people will be happy with. More on this as time grows!

Amd Thuban. Finally

it's official, up and for sale. All details you would ever need are in it's product description. Now let's just see if this weaker but much cheaper six core will fend well against the preemptive Intel monster. Right now, I don't think it's all about he proc. I think it's more about the chipset that it runs off of, seeing as Intel and AMD are having somewhat of a chipset war. Well see more as AMD works on his fusion proc.s and Intel works on it's Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge. Hopefully fusion lives up to it's name and actually provides people with netbooks that don't bluescreen when you accidentally block an airvent to it and have graphics that can actually play 1080p without lagging so INSANELY badly. Hopefully Intel also get's over itself and let's Nvidia into more of it's chipsets so we can see a true Intel/AMD competitive netbook market.

Huge bid for graphics card

XFX limited edition number 68 is being sold on ebay for thousands of dollars so far. Why is it on ebay? I don't know, Either way, I wouldn't spend that much for a graphics card, that's insane.

even more 3ds

The Nintendo 3ds will likely be the most powerful handheld system from Nintendo and Sony. I conclude this from all of the information I have looked at.

Possible system specs:

  • Dual ARM Cortex-9 Processor 300 MHz - 1.0 GHz
  • 1080p Possible playback (Screen resolution permitting)
  • 1.8MP camera
  • Dual 3d touch screens
  • Possible video out (Maybe a mini HDMI port through adapter)
  • Built in memory 512MB realistic 1GB+ possible DDR2
  •  3D Joystick
  • Backwards compatibility
  • 12 Hours + battery life
  • Larger screens with larger resolution built by Sharp and/or Hitachi
  • Comes in all colors (I wish lol, Neon Green is awesome, Maybe an Nvidia 3ds?)
  • Accelerometer
All in all this console is either set up as a huge win for Nintendo, or a great disappointment for the rest of the community. We'll have to wait until E3 in June to really find out if it's a hit or miss.

If anyone has this card, XFX wants it back

More 3ds news, Release date.

The Nintendo 3ds will be Nintendo's new handheld gaming system with 3d technology being applied without having to wear those ridiculous glasses. It may use a built in filter to have a 3d view. It is also rumored to release in October

"It's a surprise--we were expecting it much closer to Christmas," one publisher told CVG. "But I suppose it gives Nintendo the opportunity to get it front and center in people's minds nice and early. In my experience, you don't launch a product that early to Christmas unless you're confident in it--and going to spend a lot of money on it. We're reassured that Nintendo is going to give it some decent backing in Q4." Read More
