Of all the touch features in Windows 8, the one I feel is most valuable is also the least dazzling. “Fuzzy hit targeting” as it was called earlier this year enables wide fingers to more accurately work with an interface designed for pinpoint cursors. But how does it work? Long Zheng at istartedsomething explains. The […]
Joanna Stern at This is My Next… managed to grab a couple minutes with Michael Angiulo, VP of Windows Planning, who himself was able to grab a prototype tablet running Windows 8 on a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Kal-El ARM processor. The brief bit of demo is impressive in that you’d never know it wasn’t […]
Well, the rumored Samsung tablet to be handed out at Microsoft’s BUILD has been spotted, confirming both manufacturer and venue, as well as confirming that there is Intel inside. The leak sprang from weibo.com (translated) (before reaching MobileTechWorld and ThisIsMyNext). In addition to the photo, there are YouTube videos, but these have now been marked […]
Microsoft is set to launch a new software development event called BUILD in just a few hours. At the center of the show is the upcoming Windows 8 and its new touch-centric interface. We’ve already had a small taste of what to expect, but the big reveal will be the unexpected. Will Microsoft astound us […]
Every time I think I’m done with the HP Elitebook 2760p, something new pops up. It’s like a Swiss Army knife or the Martian Manhunter packed with abilities. This time, it’s Bluetooth pairing with an iPhone or iPad for audio streaming and control. This post is one in a multi-post review of the HP Elitebook […]
News of Android injustice burns through the Internet as fast as news of the next iPhone. (Next iPhone? What? Where?) This time, the wronged party is Better Android, a legitimate Android developer that suddenly found their account suspended. Thus, if you bought one of their apps, such as Better Keyboard, and need to re-download it, […]
As a convertible notebook, the HP Elitebook 2760p faces the challenge of balancing its laptop and tablet functionality. At first glance, it appears to be a notebook first, tablet second. But upon closer inspection, I’ve found much attention was paid to the tablet experience. This post is one in a multi-post review of the HP […]
The folks at Patently Apple have dug up another crazy Apple patent. This time it’s for an inductive charging solution, but definitely don’t call it wireless. Meanwhile, wireless power developer WiTricity has posted a new demo of their truly wireless system that shows us how a battery-free Mac system could work.
I’m no proponent of biometric security. I’ve long argued that it’s a convenience, not a true security measure. Of course, convenience is a nice feature to have, and the facial recognition login on the HP Elitebook 2760p Tablet PC is amazingly effective. Paired with Bluetooth authentication, it’s turning me into a biometric believer.
Offering both tablet and notebook functionality, the convertible HP Elitebook 2760p, in my evaluation, delivers impressively on both fronts. For the laptop-using masses, the 2760p should feel comfortable and familiar, making for a pleasant introduction to the benefits of pen and touch screen input. This post is one in a multi-post review of the HP […]
