This week I'm at the Intel Developer Forum to see what Intel is up to - particularly with the MIDs and netbooks. Looking at the classes that are going to be offered, there's a strong focus on ultra-portable computing solutions.
The entire GottaBeMobile.com staff will be taking the Fourth of July off to spend time with family, celebrate the freedom we enjoy in the U.S., and remembering our soldiers defending our freedoms.
On behalf of all father's out there, have a great day today - relax, have fun with your kids / grand kids, turn the computer off, and be sure to give your dad a call.
HP is having a show all to itself in Berlin and Sierra seems to be having quite a time there and she’s already brought us news on HP’s TouchSmart All-in-One.
I have been to WIPTE the past 2 years and I can say that it's been a great place to hang out and meet other Tablet PC folks focused on education. This year's event has now been scheduled for October 15-16 and information is up on their site.
Mi-Co, makers of Mi-Forms, one of the most popular form-filling packages that supports ink input, is sponsoring User Days 2008, April 22-23 in Research Triangle Park, NC.

This week in Washington, DC, many of computer security's best and brightest minds have gathered to present research and to offer training on the latest attack techniques and network defenses.
CES 2008 has come and gone, the Super Bowl will be over tonight, and now attention turns to what comes next. So, what are you going to watch after the football season comes to a close? How about some GBM InkShow? While some are predicting a lull in mobile tech news...
CES 2008 is long gone and so is one of my shorter audition trips. I've got a longer auditon trip coming up in a few weeks. This year I'm delighted that, so far, my "“on the road kitÃ¢â‚¬Â is performing well.
I'm pleased to say that the devices and gadgets I took to CES 2008 (and the annual family pilgrimage to Chicago and Wisconsin) worked well for the demands (both work and fun) that I placed on them.
In part 3 of our 3-part video series with Motion Computing, we get to learn more about C5 and the man who headed up the product design effort, Michael Johnson.
>We're back from CES 2008, and it looks like Warner was the only GBM Team member who didn't come down with some kind of illness.
There were many personal highlights for me at CES 2008. One of those was working with mobile tech buddy, Kevin Tofel, on a video produced by PodTech.
In part 2 of our 3-part video series with Motion Computing, I spend some time chatting with John Doherty and Scott Eckert, co-founders of Motion Computing.
Timing is everything and the HTC Shift sure seems to have suffered from bad timing. When the device was announced it caught just about everyone’s imagination.
Samsung refreshed its vaunted Ultra-Mobile PC line without much pre-CES hype and the news is that the new Premium also comes with a premium price of $1399.
I got an opportunity to catch up with Motion Computing's CEO and co-founder Scott Eckert at this year's Tablet PC meet-up. We chatted about the issues that were on your mind: the reasons behind the end-of-life LS800 Tablet PC and the announced but now unavailable LE170...
If you haven’t had enough of CES Coverage there is more to go around. Some sister sites in the mobile space did some great coverage of the comings and goings in Las Vegas.
In case you missed any of the action, here’s a roundup of the many videos we produced at CES 2008. It was quite a week of video action as we were using our Flip Video cameras to catch what we can.
Apologies to Nelson Algren for morphing the title. For what it is worth here are some of my thoughts and impressions on CES 2008.
I'm pretty sure you all are tired of reading about everyone's impressions of CES. However, we would be remiss by not offering up our own.
Every year I attend CES, I learn some things to help in next year's coverage. This year was no different. As a team, we definitely learned some things last year that impacted how we approached CES this year. On the whole, I believe we were quite successful.
Several days ago, we brought you news of Splashtop, an instant-boot application bringing you internet connectivity. It created quite the stir.
During CES, we had some good meetings with HP, discussing the TX2000 Tablet PC and the 310 Travel Companion Series. We had several questions from folks after our first hands on, so we got Matt to give his impressions, as well as demo the TX2000 being used with a Waco...
During the Tablet PC meetup at CES, I got the opportunity to meet with Alex Chow of PLX Technologies. He demonstrated a great USB utility, called USB Duet, that adds a USB client port to a mobile pc and enables the port to have multiple functions, like sharing files a...
Gizmodo thought they’d be clever in that old hacker prankster way at CES. They took the TV-B-Gone clicker that will allow you to turn off a TV screen and basically shut down any screen they could find at CES.
You’d think Engadget with all their resources would dig just a little deeper, but then, hey, CES can get a bit crazy as we all know. Proclaiming that they “finally bring to rest the following question: what the hell’s the difference between a UMP...
We’re all exhausted and headed out of town. CES can wear even the hardiest geeks down as you can see from a collapsed Rob below.
Matt and I left for the airport at 3:00 this morning for 6:00 flights. We knew the CES crowds would be out in force, and in force they are! We are all totally exhausted, but had more fun than ever.
Let's try this again. I had posted what I thought was this video earlier but things got crossed up. Here is the correct video. Apologies.
Matt and I caught this the other morning on one of the ultra-large screens (where talking 2 stories high) at the Luxor Hotel where we are staying.
When Warner and I were at the Sands Convention Center we stopped over at the NoahPad Ultra Portable Computer booth. We have a great video showing the unit on all sides, the keyboard in action and at look at how it's used as a mouse pad. It's really interest...
Cable clutter tangles us all up at some point when we are trying to charge up (you should see the number of cords hanging out of the sockets in our hotel room.) But their are some solutions out there to help with the mess.
At the Sands Convention Center Matt and I stumbled across LinPus Linux, a company that makes an interesting Linux GUI Front End for all sorts of devices.
