  • DIY Dangers

    Posted September 7, 2010 - 3:20 pm

    Refilling a used toner cartridge seemed easy enough when I first attempted it. After all, lots of people do it and there are dozens of places online to get the black stuff that my printer has an insatiable hunger for.
  • No Guarantees with Recycled Toner

    Posted August 31, 2010 - 10:33 am

    Discount toner doesn’t reliably produce the good quality output my company depends on or won’t last as long as the manufacturer says they will.
  • HP's Slate to be replaced by WebOS tablet?

    Posted May 10, 2010 - 7:59 am

    Even though HP has not confirmed the rumored death of the Windows-based HP Slate, leaks are already pointing to its replacement: a WebOS-based tablet. The biggest surprise? The intended launch date.
  • Apple: Eat Dirt.

    Posted May 4, 2010 - 3:28 pm

    The closed system, the capitulation to the Hollywood moguls, and the nyet-policy are driving your faithful blogger off the Mac.
  • Palm's Business Software Legacy

    Posted April 29, 2010 - 2:05 pm

    HP and Palm are pioneers that spearheaded the current mobile computing revolution. How fitting that they combine forces!
  • HP Netbook Impressed at CES

    Posted January 17, 2010 - 11:12 pm

    Before this month's CES, I wrote that the netbook doesn't have to die. It seems a little strange, but there were those who said that this netbook was a doomed class of product, destined to get larger and more expensive until it merged with the laptop.
  • Apple Tablet will be better than the Windows Tablet, hopefully

    Posted January 8, 2010 - 3:41 pm

    "Better" doesn't mean "crazy awesome," obviously...
  • How Big is Too Big for a Netbook?

    Posted August 3, 2009 - 4:33 pm

    The two most attractive netbook features are price and size, at least according to the reports from customer surveys. People like the small size and smaller price compared to a regular laptop. So how big can a netbook be and still be a netbook? A new review on TechReport, Aspire One 751 vs. Gateway LT3103 covers the two devices in depth, and the reviewer loves the larger size. Is size what makes a netbook, or something else?

  • If Vista Can't Run on a Netbook, Will Windows 7?

    Posted July 20, 2009 - 5:48 pm

    Microsoft changed their tune about providing a brain-dead Windows 7 version limited to running three applications at once for netbook vendors. Now Microsoft says Windows 7's improvements make it perfectly fine for netbooks without such limitations, except for one we'll talk about soon. But if Vista bogs down your netbook, will Windows 7 really be much better?
  • Netbooks Are Now (Almost) Free

    Posted July 7, 2009 - 11:34 am

    CDW and AT&T just announced they're bundling a variety of netbooks from HP, Acer, and Panasonic with a two year cellular data network contract. You pay $199 for the netbook and and least $60 per month for the contract.
  • HP “Insight From the Experts” Video Series

    Posted June 29, 2009 - 1:34 pm

    Many vendors say they love small businesses, but do little beyond talk. HP directs a huge amount of resources toward both small business education and their reseller channel, which provides the majority of their sales contacts with small businesses. HP just released a series of videos, including your humble narrator, called Insight from the Experts. My video is titled Backup Up Your Business.

  • Dinner with Peter Shankman, Creator of HARO

    Posted May 5, 2009 - 10:17 am

    If you're in the media, public relations biz, or an expert in some area the media cares about, you should know Peter Shankman and his Little Mailing List That Could, called HARO (Help A Reporter Out). I've been on the mailing list since just about the beginning, and am a smarter guy for it.

  • Anyone Offering Tech Tours to Vegas?

    Posted March 17, 2009 - 2:42 pm

    One of my personal discussions during the Altiris / Symantec ManageFusion conference last week concerned video surveillance inside casinos. A friend of mine had written a case study about disk vendors and how they help casinos record, digitize, and recover video. I would like to see that myself. Any user groups or vendors in Las Vegas offering technology tours behind the scenes? Such a tour might really draw some techies.
  • Quiz: He said what? (an oddly informative news quiz)

    Posted January 5, 2009 - 11:22 am

    Who isn't going to just say hi and walk off? Who flipped an energy-guzzling PC on its head? Who doesn't think breasts are harmful to children? Who has bigger, badder things to worry about than flaws in the MD5 hashing algorithm? Think you know? Take this week's quiz!
  • Short Straw 1

    Posted December 29, 2008 - 12:14 pm

    If you're reading this at work, it means you're a “short straw” person who picked the short straw to work during a holiday. Welcome to the club. If you're reading this at home because you're in the habit, then I'll try to entertain you a bit.
  • Vista OOBE Part 4: Summary

    Posted December 19, 2008 - 1:00 pm

    Now that I've gotten the networking issue under control, if not exactly fixed (I still have to disable and enable the network connection a couple of times after every reboot), let me wrap up my initial experiences with Vista. Bottom line for me: little or no improvement over XP for my use.
  • Vista OOBE Part 2: the horror, the horror

    Posted December 15, 2008 - 1:40 pm

    First, a correction: HP includes the Vista system disks in a special partition and expects you to make your own recovery disks. I still think people deserve a real disk, but I doubt I'll get anywhere with that. I'll leave that battle until after I fix the sound and networking problems with this system.
  • Vista OOBE Part 1

    Posted December 11, 2008 - 3:08 pm

    I just unboxed and turned on my new (refurbished) HP 6560T PC running Vista Home Premium. Yes, I finally slowed down enough to let the Microsoft Vista steamroller catch me.
  • As HP snaps up LeftHand, DataCore extends its right

    Posted October 7, 2008 - 11:43 am

    Earlier this week, HP announced that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire LeftHand Networks, a provider of storage virtualization and iSCSI storage area network (SAN) solutions. This is a big deal, because LeftHand Networks has more than 11,000 installations across 3,000 different customers. Another iSCSI vendor, DataCore is looking to capitalize on uncertainty among resellers.
