GBM InkShow: 3-Way Tablet PC Comparison

In this GBM InkShow, I put the Fujitsu T5010, Fujitsu T2010, and HP TX2051 through their paces. Of course there’s no such thing as a winner in these types of comparisons since each device is dedicated to a separate market. The T5010 is the high-performance beast in this comparison. Running the latest Centrino 2 Duo […]

GBM InkShow: The Lenovo ThinkPad X301 Notebook

No, it isn’t a Tablet PC. The Lenovo ThinkPad X301 is a refresh, and maybe a bit more than a refresh of the Lenovo ThinkPad X300 (Check out Rob’s InkShow of the X300). Every notebook that is released in the ‘thin and light’ category is compared to the MacBook Air these days. The X301 is […]

GBM Podcast #55: We’ve Got Another Matt

      Meet the Marshall. Actually, meet Matthew Dillon, one of our newest GBM Team Members. Given that he likes to be called Matt, and we’ve already got Matt Faulkner running around here someplace, I think I’ll call Matt Dillon the Marshall. (Now let’s see how many of the younger folk can keep up […]

It has been a while since we’ve done an InkShow on Bluebeam’s PDF Revu, but with their recent release of version 6.2, we thought it was a perfect time to do a refresh and take a look at what has changed from version 5 to 6. In this InkShow, I go over many of the […]

GBM InkShow: HTC Shift as a Companion Device?

The past few weeks I have been trying to find a ‘companion’ Tablet PC to go with my work laptop.  The first device I had a look at was this HTC Shift provided by Dynamism.  We have taken a look at the Shift in the past, but this is a different angle.  Will it fill […]

GBM InkShow: HP iPAQ 900 Series Business Communicator

While I was at the HP event in Berlin, I got an HP iPAQ 900 Series Business Communicator, aka a really nice PDA phone. This phone has it all – Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro, touch screen, GPS, 3MP camera. Except that it isn’t mine anymore. As you may remember, I got an Apple iPhone a […]

GBM InkShow: WebDT 310

Every once in a while I get the opportunity to review a system that is outside of my usual realm of products. Such was the case with the DT Research WebDT 310. Designed for vertical markets, the WebDT 310 is a 10″ slate style Tablet PC – durable, but not ruggedized. It features an AMD […]

GBM Podcast #53: We Can’t Count

OK, we can’t count. Or I should say Matt can’t count. This is GBM Podcast #53 but we kept referring to it as number 52 in the show. So, if you get confused, blame Matt. After all the younger guys are supposed to keep up with this kinda thing, sparing us old geezers with ancient […]
