Today Samsung announced the Series 7 notebook. A notebook with what I think is a sleek design that will wow pretty much everyone. The series 7 is one sexy machine.
The series 7 will be available in 13 and 15.6 inch configurations and offer Samsung Max Screen technology, they will also be powered by Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and available with 6 or 8 GB of memory. Yes that is right, they start with 6GB of memory more than enough in my book.
Other features on the series 7, a 1.3 MP camera, 750 GB HDD, and the available configurations will be also feature AMD Radeon HD or Xeymour graphics. Of course they will run Windows 7. For more information be sure to visit http://www.samsung.com
Today Lenovo showed off their new tablets running the Android operating system with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a Lenovo product. There are two new tablets in total the IdeaPad K1 for consumers, and the ThinkPad tablet for business users.
Lenovo is known for building up an operating system and delivering a unique experience, while other OEMs simply give you a generic experience. I first experienced that uniqueness with their Edge 420s ThinkPad.
There is a reason we don’t call notebooks “Laptops” anymore, and that reason pretty much has to do with the heat generated by notebooks now a days. You literally can burn something.
While that story is from almost 10 years ago notebooks today generate a lot of heat and might still burn something. Yet we still place it on our laps while we work comfortably in bed, or on the couch while we catch up on episodes of Doogie Howser on HuLu. I’ll be the first to admit my lap does get warm and the notebook either ends up on the end table or coffee table.

Over the past year the forums saw a decline in legitimate traffic, while the blog/news/reviews portion of the site saw a hefty increase. Over the past four months because of that decline in legitimate traffic on the forums, the ad revenue generated and used to pay for our hosting bill was not enough to sustain them with our current host.
Today Microsoft announced a new addition to the Artist Edition line, with the Touch Mouse Artist edition. It is a mouse that features multi-touch technology that allows you to use gestures, and provides a faster navigation experience. I have used a Microsoft Touch mouse for about a week now and it’s the best thing ever. Using two and even three fingers to at a time just makes navigating and working easier, at least for me.
