According to the calendar we are turning the corner from summer to autumn and with that comes back to school time, football season, anticipation of the holidays, and, of course, a new burst of gadget lust from geeks everywhere. Although I’m not sure gadget lust has a particular season. In any event, August was as hot as a late summer day when it came to GBM InkShow action because we had plenty of exciting hardware action for you to take a look at. Everything from Hugo’s first peek at the HTC Shift, to the Gateway E295, and even a look at ProClip’s mounting solutions for your car. So check out the August lineup and let us know your comments and what you may or may not be lusting over.
