Dell Adamo XPS targets MacBook Air sexiness

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Design, PC / Laptop,

Dell Adamo XPS

As if CEATEC Japan wasn’t exciting enough for tech enthusiasts, had a press conference to show off the Adamo XPS. You can get a glimpse of it in the image above. The man you see clutching onto it for dear life is Dell VP Alex Gruzen, who had this to say about the 9.99 millimeter notebook: “When you see it, when you touch it, you’ll lust after it.” 

He then went on to put it away, neglecting to give any information about the internals. We don’t have a price from Dell either, but we do know that custom lids and designs add $40-85 to the total cost.

90210: How Thin is Too Thin?

90210 GirlsKelly, Brenda, Donna

For some reason, everyone is talking about the same thing today: the girls and how skinny they are. I admit, the first time I saw Shenae Grimes (she’s Annie), I felt sorry for the teens out there. When I was a very little girl watching Beverly Hills, 90210, it was hard enough looking at Kelly Taylor’s perfect smile and Donna Martin’s lovely figure and wondering how I could ever compete - but they, at least, looked as though they actually did eat the food at the Peach Pit, from time to time. The new crop of West Beverly High Schoolers look more like refugees in designer labels who just came from the salon, where some kind person gave them makeovers…but sadly, no snacks.

Up until recently, I would have said that was one of the skinniest actresses in America. (Notice I said America, because otherwise Keira Knightley would easily have her beat).

But then I saw .

I’ve always been told that black was a slimming color, but apparently red does a pretty good job as well.


Exclusive: MacBook Air vs. Voodoo Envy 133 - Clash of World’s Thinnest Notebooks

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Design, Features, PC / Laptop,

Earlier this morning we put up our Voodoo Envy 133 gallery, and once we glanced at our , we knew it was so on. It was time to put them head-to-head, in an epic battle of the world’s thinnest notebook computers. So, we put together another gallery, where the MacBook Air and Voodoo Envy 133 sit side-by-side. We take pit them together from a few different angles. Now, the Envy 133 does take the victory for being the thinnest notebook computer - but the thin side of the MacBook Air is technically thinner than the uniform thickness of the Envy. Really, it all comes down to what OS you want to run, and if you don’t care, then it comes down to form factor. Oh, and of course, the Envy 133 has way more ports (including HDMI) than the MacBook Air can even dream of having at this point.

Hit up our MacBook Air vs. Voodoo Envy 133 gallery for all the goods.

Bleeding Edge TV 267: A look at the Voodoo Envy 133

Posted by Sparky Categories: Gizmatic, Features, PC / Laptop, Podcasts, Videocasts,

While the has long reigned as the king of sleek and sexy laptops the newly announced manages to beat it in terms of both computing power, and clean sexy design. The Envy features a carbon fiber case (with an option for the automotive finish of your choice), and a revolutionary new AC adapter with an Ethernet port and a dedicated 802.11n router to allow wired connections without wires. The Envy 133 clocks in at 0.7” thick which dethrones the Macbook Air as the thinnest laptop on the market, while still managing to pack 2 USB ports (one of which is eSATA compatible), HDMI, and an ExpressCard slot.

Check out the video for a first look at this slim and lustworthy computing masterpiece in an interview with Rahul Sood, founder of Voodoo and CTO of HP Global Gaming.


The 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Coverage

Emmy AwardsThe 59th Annual Emmy Awards has not even started, yet I’m already sensing sensing a weird vibe about tonight’s telecast.  Will the show be a celebration of those young and new (e.g. Heroes)?  Will it be a tribute to those bowing out (James Gandolfini and crew)?  Or will performer Kanye West somehow manage to cast a controversial shadow over the rest of the ceremony?

What a difference a year makes.  Twelve months ago, we were still handing out trophies to stars from Will & Grace and The West Wing (those shows feel so five-years ago now).  Today, we welcome a new crop of nominees including Ugly Betty and 30 Rock for Best ComedyLast year, we were entertained by an always-hilarious Conan O’Brien.  This year, we are threatened by a song and dance number from this year’s host, Ryan Seacrest.  Last August, 24 snagged the award for Best Drama.  This September, it’s not even nominated (yet somehow Boston Legal is).

I think it would be safe to assume the voters would predictably (and respectfully) shower The Sopranos with honors, but I’ll still be crossing my fingers for an upset sometime tonight.  We’ll need something to talk about tomorrow…

Here’s the play-by-play of tonight’s events coming to you from the neglected West Coast!

World’s Thinnest DVD Discs

World's Thinnest DVD

Using an innovative nanoimprint technology, Hitachi Maxell, LTD have succeeded in creating the world’s thinnest DVD media at 0.092mm thick.  This makes the new disc approximately 1/13th the thickness of existing DVD media, yet allows it to retain the full 4.7GB capacity.  Obviously a single disc isn’t going to gain you any benefits simply by being thinner, but if you were to take a stack of say 100-discs, make them double-sided (9.4GB), stuff them into a cartridge 2.5-inches thick, and slap a fancy acronym like SVOD on it, you’d have a digital library cartidge with almost 1TB of capacity (940

MB

GB).  SVOD, which stands for Stacked Volumetric Optical Disc, really starts to shine when coupled with the next generation of blue laser technology, as a stack of 50GB discs could increase storage capacity to 5TB.

When released the discs will be priced at under $325 for a 100-disc cartridge.
