HardwareJust when you thought that you had everything written down on your christmas wishlist, JMTek launched the 1GB USBdrive. Works with standard USB, is the size of a keyring (how big is a "standard" keyring anyway?), what more do you want?

New all-in-one PC?

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe company PaceBlade has developed a new portable computer which has the best solutions of all portable computers I've seen. The PaceBook can be used as a notebook, a tablet PC, etc. The display is a touch screen and can be used in both landscape and portrait modes.

For geeks, the most interesting fact might be that this computer uses a Crusoe CPU from Transmeta.

The computer you can't see

  View Printable Version 
HardwareSpeaking about reinventing the wheel, a company called Cybernet have launched something they call "zero footprint PC". What's that? It's a PC without the box. The whole setup is inside the keyboard, and all the connectors fit along the back of the thingy.

Can you say "Commodore 64/Amiga 500/600/1200"? The box (?) ticks in at about 1680 , including a 17" LCD monitor.

Read a small review with pictures at designtechnica.com, and visit Cybernet's web site for the rest. Be warned though. For some reason or another, Cybernet have decided to run SSL all over their site, so the loading times are not quite supersonic.

Want a Bokks?

  View Printable Version 
HardwareNo it's not just a bad english word, it's a portable MP3 and video player, with Linux as the operating system. From the article:

Measuring a compact 10.2" x 6.3" x 1.2" (260 x 160 x 30 mm) the unit has a 20GB hard drive for storing files. Once a collection of movies are downloaded, the player can easily be disconnected and carried anywhere there is a television for convenient viewing. The company bills the Bokks as a personal video recorder, but the unit is actually a bit closer to a specific-function laptop that uses a TV for its display.

The Bokks web site is here. Oddly enough, the swedish company that makes this thing is called Blokks.

HardwareYou always need more room for stuff. Just when you thought that 60Gb drive was enough, it just isn't. So the storage guys puts more data into smaller space, you go out and haul in the latest 160Gb drive, and everybody is happy.

Attack: Duron 1200 Takes On the Pentium 4

  View Printable Version 
Hardware
Article from: Tom's Hardware Guide

"Our comprehensive benchmark analysis has shown that, in some disciplines, the new AMD Duron 1200 is even marginally faster than an Intel Pentium 4/1500. The Duron's strengths come clearly to the fore in 3D games still based on DirectX 7. Under DirectX 8, the Duron 1200 is still somewhat faster than the direct competition from Intel, the Celeron 1200, but, the low-cost CPU still can't outstrip Intel's Pentium 4. Encoding MP3s is another story, however - the Duron 1200 tops the Pentium 4/1400."

Itanium flunking Compaq server tests

  View Printable Version 
HardwareIntel's Itanium processor is failing to pass Compaq Computer's stress tests, according to a Compaq representative, thus holding up the release of Compaq's Itanium servers.

A Compaq representative said that the company has experienced "sightings" with Itanium, Intel's 64-bit processor for servers, in Compaq's internal testing of its ProLiant DL590/64. The representative would not go so far as to call the issue a flaw, but said the problem appeared to be caused by the processor. The problem crops up with servers running both the 733MHz and 800MHz version of the chip.
