HP's new small form factor workstations raise the bar for what users can expect in performance and lower the bar on price, size, and energy consumption.
If a solution is meant to be turnkey, easy, and low-maintenance, make sure it doesn't include a bare metal machine for end users to configure.
A 56k modem is standard on the new clamshell Classmate knockoff from HP - Can it succeed at home or abroad?
ZDNet's government tech blogger, David Gewirtz, wrote himself quite an exegesis on Palm this morning . It was pretty decent fodder to help answer my question: Will HP's purchase of Palm hurt Android?
Obviously Steve Ballmer is not going to announce HP's first offering in the "slate" category (it's a tablet, folks, but if he feels the need to call it a slate, whatever) running the latest Linux distribution made for MIDs, netbooks, and, well, slates.
