HP Elitebook 2760p Review: Weight, Stamina, & Toughness


Like Wolverine from the comic books, the HP Elitebook 2760p convertible tablet packs a lot of power and weight in a relatively small package. Its weight, toughness, and stamina form a triangle of intertwined traits that work with and against each other.

GBM Shortcut: HP Elitebook 2760p Webcam Challenge


Camera specs like resolution and fps are good to know but don’t necessarily tell you how good the video and photo quality is. Thus, I thought it would be helpful to share some actual photo and video recorded from the HD webcam of the HP Elitebook 2760p. And I spiced it up a notch by […]

OnLive Game System Unboxing and First Look (Video)

GBMShortcut Checking out the Google Web App Store

Don’t let the headline deceive you. This isn’t about hacking the Google Chrome OS onto a Tablet. Instead it is running the Google Chrome browser, and more specifically the Google Web App Store, which in essence offers you most of what the Chrome OS will offer on a Tablet. In this case I’m using the […]

GBM Shortcut: The Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse


The Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse is now available at most retailers for $69.99. As far as a mouse goes in my view it is not a bad alternative if you need a mouse that is relatively compact for your bag or you pocket with one exception. I’ll get to that in a minute. The design […]

GBM ShortCut_ The Hard Candy Stylus

The quest for a good stylus that works with devices using capacitive screens like the iPad continues. But I think I might have found a winner.

Why Hasn’t RIM Demonstrated the PlayBook?


RIM’s generated a ton of buzz around the BlackBerry PlayBook, its 7-inch tablet device that debuted at DEVCON 2010 on Monday. A conference with thousands of BlackBerry developers and enthusiasts sure sounds like the perfect place to demonstrate the first BlackBerry device to break out of the smartphone form factor, but RIM took a different […]

WeTab Looks Like a Winner (video demos)


Earlier today I mentioned that the WeTab (formerly known as the WePad) is getting a lot of attention here at IDF 2010. I got a chance to catch up with 4tiitoo CTO Stephan Odoerfer, who gave me a full walkthrough of the device. To put it simply: I want one. At first glance the WePad looks […]
