HP Tries to Dethrone Macbook Air

HP has been around the block and down the street. They know a thing or two about hardware, but often have a hard time getting the marketing attention that they deserve. The recently launched the HP Spectre and this Ultrabook is as thin as a "AAA" battery and has better looks, style and performance than Apple's Macbook Air. I wish it would do better than it will, but HP isn't a really sexy company and will have a hard time pushing this to more than a few business professionals.

Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream 801.11AC-1900 Router Review

We have just posted up our review of the very speedy Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream router. This is an AC1900 router that can serve more that one device at full wireless speed. It's a MU-MIMO router that will support multiple users at full speed and it reaches the fastest wireless speeds we've seen to date. Take a look at see if it's powerful enough to host your network.

Overall the performance of the EA7500 is quite fantastic. While the dual-core CPU seems to be a bit laggy when it comes to loading pages and data on the web interface, it certainly has enough power to run a loaded network. The router ended up being the backbone at our 2016 LAN event - VulcLAN and it kept up with over 80 connected devices. It managed traffic, connections, wired and wireless clients and even managed to pull some limited QoS...


So Tesla is Doing Okay with Pre-Orders

Tesla has had their share of ups and downs. They have a fantastic product with their high-end electric roadsters, but until recently, they were all high-end cars with a high-end price tag. They just announced their new Model 3 with a pre-order price right around the $42,000 mark. The response has been overwhelming as they've had about $10 Billion worth of pre-orders in the first 36 hours. Here's hoping they knock this out of the park!

Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk tweeted on Friday that the Model 3, which is slated to go into production in late 2017, will sell at an average price of $42,000, including the price of options and additional features, which would give the initial flurry of orders an estimated retail value of $10.6 billion.

8th Generation Kindle Coming

When I first read the headline that Amazon was ready to release a new "top of the line" 8th generation Kindle, my first thought was, "Do we really need another Kindle?" I guess that Amazon must be making a bunch of money off these things still and that people are asking for more features, and performance. Right now the 7th generation Kindle's are on sale - further confirming what we expect. We'll have to wait until next week for more details.

Overwatch - Animated Short #2 "Alive"

Blizzard has released another animated short teasing their upcoming title, Overwatch. The short is titled, "Alive" and it looks pretty awesome. If the game has anything to do with these animated shorts, it should be pretty interesting. Time will tell if the hype is earned or spurned.


No Xbox One.Point.Five

There are rumors that the PlayStation could be getting an update that would make it a PS4.5, and we wondered in something would be coming from Microsoft in order to fill in the gap between now and next generation. According to Phil Spencer, Microsoft is not about "half" projects. If they are moving forward, they are doing so with big numbers and making a much better product right away. Of course he won't confirm or deny that they are trying to push out an Xbox Two anytime soon.

"I'm not a big fan of Xbox One and a half. If we're going to move forward, I want to move forward in big numbers," Spencer clarified that he doesn't have any inside knowledge about PlayStation's plans or the rumors currently circulating, but he added, "For us, our box is doing well. It performs, it's reliable, the servers are doing well. If we’re going to go forward with anything, like I said, I want it to be a really substantial change for people--an upgrade."

Apple Turns 40

Apple has just turned 40 and there are more than a few products that actually help shape the modern computing world. Some of the favorites are the Apple II, the Mac Classic, the super nifty iMac G4, the iPod as well as some software that has pushed other companies to do better. I don't have a crush on Apple as do some, but they do deserve some credit for pushing design and not settling for cruddy products. It's what makes the world better - competition.

What I was able to do on that first Mac, and on so many Macs afterwards, was create: first in Kid Pix, then in Microsoft Word 5 (still the best version of Word to ever exist), then in PageMaker and Photoshop and Garageband and Pro Tools, and ultimately on the web. That Apple logo was a siren call for people who saw computers as something more than a business tool or a productivity device — Apple’s fiercely devoted customers and fans became a community, a fanbase devoted to the idea that computers could make culture.

Oculus Rift ToS is Super Sketchy

If you expected things from Oculus to be awesome, you may want to really read the Terms of Service agreement before you sign you life away. Keep in mind that Oculus is now a Facebook property, so we probably shouldn't expect anything really decent. Still, all open source projects you create with your Rift become property of Oculus - and you have no rights to what you create at all. None. Also, they listen, watch, read and snoop on you when the device is powered on. No big deal.

By submitting User Content through the Services, you grant Oculus a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual (i.e. lasting forever), non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free and fully sublicensable (i.e. we can grant this right to others) right to use, copy, display, store, adapt, publicly perform and distribute such User Content in connection with the Services.
