In this edition of GBM Shortcut, I take a quick first look at Fujitsu's new T5010. Ok, I lie - it's a little longer than a normal Shortcut.
I got an opportunity to talk about the Intel UrbanMax to Patrick Lynch, the marketing manager for the platform. In this short video clip you can see the UrbanMax in action.
In this GottaBeMobile Shortcut, I take a brief look at three free flashlight applications for the iPhone/iTouch. Verdict: These flashlight applications are handy to have even if they aren't as good as the real thing.
In this shortcut, I take a look at the big brother of the Ego bag I've been carrying around for the past few months. The SuperEgo from TomBihn measures in at about 2 inches wider, 1 inch taller and 1 in deeper. Just enough to hold my new Dell M4300 work pow...
When I first heard about the Pogo Stylus, a stylus designed specifically for the iPhone/iTouch, I thought it was a joke. After spending some quality time with it, I can tell you it's no joke. The Pogo Stylus is a handy and functional tool that can be purcha...
There are times when you just need to unplug from your Tablet PC to take notes, brainstorm, or just get away from it all. However, wouldn't it be great to still capture those notes and have them available for searching? That is where the Dane-Elec ZPen comes in.
The past week I had the opportunity to test the Soldius1 mp3 player and cell phone solar charger from mysoldius. This device sells for 89.95 at mysoldius.com and is available in a variety of colors. They have an excellent frequently asked questions section ...
I just installed the new update from Dell giving multi-touch to the Latitude XT Tablet PC. Checkout the quick video below on how it works.
I got the opportunity to play with the new HP Touchsmart IQ504 when I was in Berlin and took some videos of people interacting with the system.
Go back in time and look at the early versions of the Surface computer, including the very first prototype built using a table from Ikea.
Part of Steve Seow's job on the Surface team is understanding how people use and interact with the Surface computer - from dragging things around to pressing buttons and more.
This is a quick video I shot with the HTC Shift I have had for a couple of weeks. I am looking for a device to complement a regular work issued laptop. I need something more powerful for daily work, but I don't want to give up the Tablet PC functional...
One of my "ah-ha" moments came during this presentation of an app written by Bogdan Popp, a Test Lead on the Surface team, during his "free time".
Pete Thompson, Microsoft Surface Computing's General Manager, talks about form factors for Surface, touch wall, and about why this new surface space is a whole different paradigm in computing. .
Rob and I had fun on GBM Podcast #51 testing out the Blue Snowflake portable microphone for our recording. We think the sound quality came out pretty good.

We've passed through spring and now it looks like we're into a quite a summer on many fronts including some severe weather. By the way, before we move forward here, all of us at GBM send out our thoughts and prayers to those affected by the flooding in the Midwest and...
I mentioned last week that Dell was sending me a replacement Latitude XT Tablet PC due to some intermittent problems I was experiencing with the digitizer.
The Axiotron ModBook arrived today. Here is quick first look at the ModBook. This is NOT a review - it is just a quick look. By the way, I mentioned how heavy the ModBook was.
The good folks at Waterfield Designs, who make some of the most awesome sleeves on the market, sent me one of their new sleeves - especially built for the HP HDX Dragon we are giving away.
In this GBM Shortcut, I test out the web cam on the Lenovo IdeaPad U110. You'll immediately notice that the voice and video are initially out of sync, then get better as the recording goes on, and then get out of sync again.
In this GBM Shortcut, I take a look at Lenovo's Slim AC/DC Combo Adapter, a great solution for those Lenovo Thinkpad / IdeaPad / Notebook users out there.
This shortcut I am taking a quick overview of the TabletKiosk GETAC G840XT Rugged unit. In the video, I go over the specs of the unit that was sent to me to review. After the specs, we take a look at the outside of the unit - ports, pen, buttons and feel....
(Hint: Mother's Day is coming...) I love bags. All shapes, all sizes, but especially the funky bags and especially anything retro and girly.
April is now behind us, but at least where I live we still seem to be getting quite a few April showers still. No matter, April whether wet or dry was a high water mark for GBM InkShow and Shortcut action.
When I did the InkShow on EverNote's new beta program that allows you to sync your notes among multiple devices for some reason it wasn't working on my iPod Touch.
I'm pleasantly surprised I have to say. When I checked out the HP tx2000 at CES back in January I wasn't turned off by the Inking at all, but now that I have my hands on a review unit HP tx2051, I'm more than pleased with the Inking on this Tablet PC.
Ok, I finally got around to unboxing those two boxes that arrived the other day and taking a quick first look at the two Tablet PCs they contained.
Spring is springing and lately so is our InkShow, Shortcut, and Podcast action (although we've been remiss in publishing podcasts recently.) We missed the February Roundup due to some crazy scheduling challenges as the GBM Team has all been pulled in a myriad of direc...
I'm well in to day 1 with my Dell Latitude XT and I've uncovered my first problem - the power cord. Fortunately, a quick phone call to Dell Tech Support resolved the issue and they are sending out a replacement power cord next day, free of charge.
I've been an iGo power adapter fan for years as they allow me to cut down on cable clutter when I'm on the road with multiple devices.
Tom Bihn just sent me their latest and greatest bag to review: The Ristretto Messenger. It is a small bag designed to fit the Lenovo X300, Apple MacBook, and Apple MacBook Air.
Paper, paper, paper. There just seems to be no way to get away from stacks of pictures and resumes when it comes to auditioning actors and keeping track of which ones we're interested in.
