Doxie portable scanner

Forget the cute name and the little pink hearts on the front of this ultraportable scanner; Doxie will win your affection because of its simplicity and cloud connection.Scan into the cloud with DoxieUnlike many portable scanner, the Doxie doesn't need a power supply, just the USB cable that connects it to your Mac or PC; that and the exceptionally light weight make it truly portable (and it's easy to tuck away on the shelf and grab when you need it in the office).

Is CableCard dead? FCC weighs alternatives.

In theory, CableCards don't seem like a bad idea: Instead of using a set-top box provided by your cable company, you can slide a small card into a device like a PC or TiVo and use that to control your programming options. The first cards were hobbled by their inability to communicate in both directions—able to transmit to the device but not to send signals back from it—which made features like on-demand viewing unavailable.

AMD announces ATI Theater HD 750 "HDTV on a chip"

Some owners of home theater PCs (HTPCs) want as much of the same experience as a typical cable user as possible, which means they need to install CableCards into their systems to access scrambled digital channels and the like. For those whose TV needs are less demanding, a PC with a TV tuner can get you unscrambled cable channels and over-the-air HD stations.

Ace Computers to release $999 CableCard-equipped home theater PCs

One of the major impediments to the growth of the home theater PC (HTPC) market has been the lack of digital cable TV support. Yes, Clear QAM tuners can handle unencrypted digital channels, but only now that cable companies have started getting behind the CableCard standard can consumers use their PCs to view and record encrypted cable channels.

MobileTechRoundup show #88

A couple of new mobile product discussions kicked off MobileTechRoundup show #88 when James, Kevin, and I chatted about the Medion UMPC that has me thinking of switching from my Q1 and the HTC Athena Pocket PC Phone Edition device. I also discovered my MacBook Pro cable was fraying and actually it is dead right now. James discovered EV-DO Rev. A in Houston and I tried it out with Sprint. A cool freeware for S60 3rd Edition devices was also discussed and if you have one of these devices then check it out and improve your email and texting capabilities.

Still plugged in to the raw Internet? Here are some $25 routers

For the life of me I still don't understand why people still plug directly in to their cable or DSL modem.  Not only are they exposing themselves to the raw Internet, they're making life miserable by limiting themselves to one PC connectivity at a time and possibly even having to deal with PPPoE DSL dialup configurations.

Gateway: Buy a PC, buy broadband

Gateway announced on Wednesday it has completed the rollout of broadband service offerings through its Gateway stores across the United States. Gateway stores in cable-serviced areas in the United States now offer high-speed cable Internet service as a part of a PC bundle or as a standalone product. The company started its efforts to roll out high-speed cable access last year and has established relationships with Adelphia, America Online, AT&T Broadband, Charter Communications, Comcast, Cox Communications and EarthLink. Gateway has sold more than 50,000 subscriptions, according to the company. --Richard Shim, Special to ZDNet News

AT&T, Linksys team up for home networking

AT&T Broadband announced Thursday that it would supply home networking services to its Internet customers with hardware from Linksys. AT&T Broadband Internet customers can connect their PCs and laptops to their high-speed Internet connection through a wired or a wireless network. Customers pay about $45.95 for a high-speed Internet connection and the lease of a modem, and can add up to four computers to a home network for $4.95 each, which gives each computer its own (Internet protocol) address for simultaneous access to the Internet. The customer must also buy additional hardware. For a wireless network that runs on the 802.11b, or Wi-Fi, standard, home users need Network Access Point connected to their cable modem, which handles signals to and from other computers and costs about $150 from AT&T. The computers themselves must also have wireless network PC cards or adapters, which range in cost between $80 and $40 each. Prices for wired network equipment are generally cheaper. --Sam Ames, Special to ZDNet News
