HP Supposedly Scraps Windows 7 Tablet Project

TechCrunch is reporting that HP has scrubbed its Windows 7 tablet because a) Windows 7 makes for a horrible tablet OS and b) they’re said to be abandoning Intel-based hardware altogether.

It should come as no surprise, really. Now that HP has picked up Palm, it makes perfect sense to switch gears and focus on webOS. I’ve heard …

Microsoft Admits Courier Exists, Scraps Project

RIP Microsoft Courier, we hardly knew ye.

Gizmodo, the gadget blog that first uncovered the Courier last year, reports that Microsoft has all but scraped the project. The two-screen tablet folder was intriguing based on conceptual videos also obtained by Gizmodo, but we’ll never know for sure if any of what we saw would have made …

Microsoft’s Project Pink Unveiled As Kin, Coming To Verizon This May

Microsoft’s acquisition of Danger in February of 2008 renewed interest in the languishing mobile operating system formerly known as Windows Mobile. Many enthusiasts (aka fanboys) and pundits alike speculated and pontificated about Microsoft’s plans for the tiny Bay Area company behind the successful Hiptop OS/device aka Sidekick. But …

The Daily Dose

Monday, April 5, 2010

Today in Techland: Peter got mail from Iron Man. (No, really.) Doug prepped for baseball season. (You’ve got to see these baseball gizmos.) And me, I spent all day re-watching Red Letter Media’s scathing review of Attack of the Clones. Hilarious. But just in case that’s not enough …

Here’s what else is going …

PrimeSense Powering Microsoft’s Project Natal

So it was revealed just now that Israeli-based PrimeSense is powering the 3D sensing and recognition technologies behind Microsoft’s Project Natal.

The PrimeSensor is comprised of three main components: PrimeSense’s PS1080 SoC, CMOS image sensor and an IR light source. So how do those three components make Project Natal work? Glad …

Microsoft Makes the Zune HD 64GB Official, Available 4/12

The most underrated product in Microsoft’s consumer portfolio has to be the Zune. I’m serious. For $15/month you have access to unlimited music. If you don’t renew you lose everything, but $15/month isn’t that much. Also, all the cool kids at Microsoft don’t even work on the main campus. The Xbox, Zune, Bing and Windows Phone …

Microsoft Outlines Windows Phone 7 Development Details

Microsoft is slowly (slooooowly) making its way back into the mobile phone arena with the impending Windows Phone 7 initiative. It’s seriously like the guy who waits until 10:59:59 to check out of a hotel. Apple, Google, and even Palm are halfway to Albuquerque and Microsoft hasn’t even showered yet.

But Microsoft’s got a …

Witness the Awesomeness that is Microsoft. No, really!

It makes sense now, right? The above demo by Eric Rudder at TechEd in Dubai is one of many reasons why I’m stoked for Windows Phone 7 devices to be released to the public. The ability to play a game that syncs across all three major Microsoft platforms (Xbox 360, Windows OS, Windows Phone 7) is bonkers.

Not that I use a Windows …

YouTube To Drop Support For IE6, Others In March

IE6 users take heed for YouTube will drop support for your browser on March 13. That’s not to say you won’t be able to watch videos, but specific features – whatever they might be – will not work with your dinosaur browser. The same goes for those of you running Chrome 4.0, Firefox 3.0, Safari 3.0 and those of you running IE7. …

In Which We Demo Project Natal

It’s safe to say that Project Natal needs no introduction but if you’ve been living under a rock or are unfamiliar with Xbox then think of Natal as Microsoft’s answer to the Wii. It was announced at last year’s E3 and little has changed since other than a release date – “in time for the holidays” – and the demo was …
