The images in this library were taken during a press conference held by AMD in March 2007. They show a near-production ready One Laptop Per Child unit that contains AMD's Geode microprocessor.
A lot of people don't realize that it's possible to build a dual-core workstation with good 2D graphics and even some decent 3D performance that's fully Vista capable for a reasonable price. In fact, you can do it for around $1,133. The only catch is that you actually have to build it. This tutorial explains the parts you need and shows you how to assemble it all. Not only do you get the satisfaction of knowing you've put in good components, you also get the satisfaction of giving the PC life with your own hands.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliances are often relatively underpowered, low-capacity devices, designed to be used by small businesses, departmental workgroups and for branch office deployment. However, that’s not the case with the new <a href="http://www.adaptec.com/en-GB/products/storage/snap_servers/Snap_Server_650/">Snap Server 650</a> from Adaptec which turns out to be a real beast of a machine capable of handling much larger workloads.
On a fresh installation of Windows Vista, we took screen shots when it came time to install Adobe's Flash plug-in into Internet Explorer for the first time. The sequence is especially interesting given Microsoft's emphasis on using Windows Vista as a non-administrative or "Lesser Privileged User" (LPU). Why? Because our first couple of attempt's failed. As it turns out, though, as best as we could tell, the failure had nothing to do with Vista, being an LPU, or Adobe's Flash. It has more to do the Web site that's calling for the Flash plug and how it responds when the Flash plug-in isn't there. In other words, depending on what site you go to, mileage may vary.
We take a quick peek at the entire installation sequence for Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007.
The Vista brute force keygen - It works, but it's slow, time consuming, complicated and it's not going to rock the world.
In this image gallery, we take a close look at the user interface behind Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 and most of its options.
Under the direction of its senior director of disruptive innovation Max Mancini, eBay is explorer richer and more engaging user interfaces to its auction service. In this short screen gallery, we get a few peaks at San Dimas: an eBay user interface built on Adobe's new forthcoming Apollo platform.
Small-format convertible Tablet PCs are, on paper, an ideal combination of form and function: they are light and therefore portable; they can be used as standard notebooks, and, thanks to their twisting screen, can also work in Tablet PC mode (either on the desk, or, if light enough, in the crook of an arm). HP Compaq's new tc4400 shows every sign of fitting the bill nicely, and with its fingerprint recognition and attractive pricing could well catch the eye.
Security researchers discuss vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi drivers, RFID proximity cards and weaknesses in hardware-based forensics.
Acer is building a portfolio of portable navigation devices, and its current range includes both Windows Mobile Pocket PCs with GPS built in and standalone navigation devices like the p610. There are three models in the p600 series; all come with maps courtesy of Navteq and have a version of the ALK CoPilot 6 software installed. The models vary in whether they include live traffic information and Bluetooth, and in the version of CoPilot they run. The two higher end models come with CoPilot ‘Premium’ while the p610, reviewed here, does not. Nor does it have Bluetooth and live traffic data support. Even so, the price is very competitive.
The Nokia N80ie is an upgrade in the software of the N80 slider S60 smartphone. Integrated WiFi with VoIP support is a major feature of this compact multimedia computer with high resolution display.
While at an AMD press conference, David Berlind captured some photographs of what apparently is a prototype of a discreet graphics card with ATI's R600 technology on it.
This year's theme on the playa was hope and fear. Check out some scenes, including the fire-breathing sculpture, and $250,000 Belgian Waffle.Credit: Declan McCullagh/CNET News.com
