Toshiba Satellite Pro S500

The S500 is a solidly made 15.6in. notebook that, at 2.54kg, is not particularly portable. Processor performance is good, but battery life could be better.

Will 3D make you go to the movies more?

Like many folks, I don't go to the movies nearly as much as I used to. Big screen high-definition TVs, DVD players, Blu-ray players, and surround-sound systems, along with the cheap availability of titles on disc and streamed over the net now means that the movies comes to me when I want them, and on my own terms (also, my popcorn is better and cheaper!). However, over the holidays I went to see the Avatar, the James Cameron CGI space-fest. But rather than go see it in standard 2D, I opted for a 3D showing because I wanted something extra. While 3D is interesting (you could say it adds a new dimension to the movie going experience), will 3D make me go to the cinema more?

What do you want from your next computer?

The big name OEMs spend millions of dollars on ads which try to tell customers what they want from their next computer. You need this processor, or that much RAM, a certain amount of disk space, so many hours of battery life or a a screen that's so-and-so across. But what do you want from your next computer?

Sony may be announcing iPod touch competitor at CES

There is a load of digital music players on the market (see my Holiday Guide) that offer consumers quite a bit of choice. However, there is not much competition in the way of touch screen players like the iPod touch. Rumors are flying this weekend that Sony will announce a new Walkman-branded portable media player. With the wild speculation that Palm will actually announce something more than another color Centro and this Sony news CES may actually have some good value for those in the mobile space this year.

MobileTechRoundup show #142, Is the line blurring between feature phones and smartphones?

James and I started off MobileTechRoundup show #142 with our thoughts on the MWg Zinc II Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional device and then Kevin joined in to talk about Windows Mobile and the apparent lack of excitement for the platform. Usability is becoming quite the topic of conversation in the mobile space as the iPhone makes people take a look at what they do with their device. Feature phones are getting more and more powerful and it seems the lines are starting to blur now with devices like the Instinct, Voyager and Dare. We also offered our thoughts on mobile specific sites and formatting for the small screen. Palringo was our freeware of the show with availability on S60, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, iPhone, PC, and Mac. We also talked a bit about Andy Abramson's excellent Global Nomad articles where each of use picked up some new tips and tricks for working on the road.

MobileTechRoundup show #140, iPhone apps, Opera Mobile 9.5 beta, and netbooks

We really tried to get away from talking just about the iPhone in MobileTechRoundup show #140, but when it is the hottest news in the mobile space it is tough. We did talk about some applications, iPhone 3G battery life, and a utility we would like to see on the iPhone. We also talked about the free Opera Mobile 9.5 beta now available for Windows Mobile touch screen devices. Netbooks were also part of the topics with Acer's Aspire One and the MSI Wind mainly discussed.

Hazro HZ30W

This is a very high-quality 30in. monitor, both in terms of display and build. It's low on frills, but sells at a lower price point than the competition. A good choice for graphics professionals or anyone requiring a lot of screen space.

The Missing Sync v4.0 beats the pants off of Microsoft's ActiveSync

I recently upgraded a couple of my devices to Windows Mobile 6 and had a chance to review a couple more devices with Windows Mobile 6. Mark/Space has been working hard to get their product upgraded to support Windows Mobile 6 and I started testing the alpha and beta versions in the last couple months. I was pleased to see they just released the full version of The Missing Sync v. 4 that allows you to sync you Mac and a Windows Mobile device. I put it through its paces and have 18 screenshots showing every setup screen in the application in my image gallery. If you own a Mac and a Windows Mobile device then I highly recommend this product.

Thanks to Haochi at Google Blogoscoped for this tip -- Google is testing a new page layout on video pages that seems to make better use of space.  Most people who see it immediately recognize that it is more YouTube-ish than the previous full-screen layout.
