Official: Eee PC range to expand


Why buy a small, cheap computer if it isn't cheap?

Because it's small.

it's basically the pyramid of compact, powerful and inexpensive PCs. You can have any two but not all tree, and quite a few people are willing to pay more if it means a system is compact and powerful.

Dell adds multi-touch to Latitude XT


Multi touch starcraft

"And another thing- why are Multitouch demos always resizing photos and zooming in on Google Earth? I mean okay it's a bit cool but isn't everyone a bit bored of that? Surely something like a multitouch Starcraft battle would be vastly better? If you get a decent touchscreen it is actually quite enjoyable!"

How would proprietary touchscreen technology integrate with a game like starcraft?

Also your cube will have beveled edges.

Surgeons to turn to Wii to sharpen their scalpel skills?


nothing new

There are many surgeons that strongly believe that playing games will improve hand eye coordination, and that's very useful for any surgeon. However the Wii is not the first choice for this kind of training, the DS offers a system does a far better job since it's far more delicate and uses a stylus which is a lot more like a scalpel then a Wii-mote.

Caught on camera: the Downfall of HD DVD


bottom line

We do a lot of multimedia for trade shows and since the beginning of last year there has been a phenomenal demand for HD video. We thought we'd have a hell of a time with deciding if we will go for HD-DVD or BR but then we realized: hey! HD-DVD doesn't even have a burner out yet.
