Lenovo and Center for Severe Weather Research

I’m quite blessed to live in the beautiful state of Colorado, which also happens to be home to the Center for Severe Weather Research in Boulder, Colorado.

I got to unbox and play with the the world’s thinnest notebook yesterday. Dell’s Adamo is just 0.65″ thick and is drop-dead gorgeous. It’s designed to appeal to fashion-conscious consumers, but this pricey machine is going to be a tough sell in this economy.

I knew when I won the HP Mini 1000 at CntrStg at CES 2009 that I was never really going to get to use it, once I returned home. I also knew that when my wife Thomasin picked it up the first time that my situation was hopeless. After a grueling few weeks of work […]

When I got lucky and won an HP Mini 1000 at CntrStg during CES 2009 I knew I would have a fight on my hands when I got home. After my wife confirmed that I didn’t purchase the device, I knew she would want it for herself. She’s been working on an original Asus Eee […]

Back in November, I brought everyone a first look at multi-touch in a pre-beta version of Windows 7 and a pre-beta version of N-Trig’s multi-touch driver. The experience was really lousy, but it showed promise. With the release of Windows 7 Beta 1 and a new version of N-Trig’s Windows 7 multi-touch driver, I was […]
