The typical UMPC is too small for many people, particularly in screen size, while the typical Tablet PC is too large for some purposes (e.g., industrial and medical applications). So, along comes Tatung with a sort of hybrid (my term, not theirs) between a UMPC and a Tablet PC, the WebPad TX-3000: 10.4 inch screen, AMD LX 800 processor, 1GB compactflash card (serves as main memory?), wireless, USB, a PC Card slot, and the lot. I can see this bridging the gap for a number of people, but no word

Okay, so, I suppose that means you have an HDTV with only one HDMI input (or, perhaps, only one free input?), and multiple HDMI components that you’d like to not only connect to the TV, but also have them automatically sensed when they’re active. Well, heck, the IOGEAR has exactly what you’re looking for with their 4-port HDMI switch. Full 1080p support, HDMI 1.3, and HDCP, all for the (surprisingly reasonable) price of $189.95.

Samsung SS 700 Concept Integrates Camera with Digital Frame

That might not seem fair, but I swear: I was in a furniture store the other day and saw an ottoman that looked just like Sony’s new VAIO TP1 HTPC. Which might be on purpose, because this thing certainly won’t fit in any A/V rack that I know of. It’s also not the most well-equipped HTPC on the market, with neither an HD optical drive nor CableCARD capability. It does have a Core 2 Duo running at 1.83GHz, 2GB RAM, Intel 950 integrated graphics (yuck!), 300GB SATA HDD, standard dual-layer DVD,
See the look on the model’s face? That’s either confusion, or someone’s making a rude gesture just off-picture. I’d be confused, too, though, at Sony’s "Hana" speaker/lamp/MP3 combo concept thing. It’s an MP3 player that supplies the tunes and pumps them out loud, all the while providing some nice (soft?) LED lighting to keep the mood just right. There’s just something about this that makes me think of products looking desperately for markets. That, or it’s the look on
If you’ve been waiting like the rest of us media hounds for Sling to release their SlingCatcher home media streamer, it’s like they say: misery loves company. Just kidding, although the word from Sling is that they tried for the summer, missed by a few months, and should have this baby out by the end of the year. So, just an update, don’t yah know.
This might be proof that marketers have way too much time on their hands and too few new ideas. This little doohickey here from It’s Outrageous! (unfortunately the real name of the company) is not only an MP3 player, but the "first ever" digital device able to record your own voice in place of the artist’s. You thought the original voice was way too squeaky? Well, the i-Sing will help show that singer who’s boss. You just better hope that your voice was a better replacement.
