Reading about the leaks online about the HP Firebird 803 feat. Voodoo DNA this morning caught me by surprise… not because of any mind blowing specifications, but a gaming PC setup in a net-top-like form factor (plus the Blackbird 002’s design). The Firebird 803 will supposedly feature a Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz processor, 4GB [included?] RAM (though for a gaming PC, I’m expecting it will be able to SUPPORT up to 8 GB of RAM), Blu-ray drive and dual […]

Wow, this is madness, my HP Mini Note 2133 hung for quite a bit while I was rushing out this morning. I was trying to download about 150+ MB worth of files from my USB drive and SD card, so I didn’t need to bring those with me (Yes, data security is a large concern for me). I had three instances of File Explorer open, along with Firefox having several tabs open, Microsoft Word 2007 attempting to open one […]
Yesterday while going out for dinner, I came across this ornament on a wall near the restaurant (picture on the right) and almost instantly, the word “Voodoo PC” came to mind (see the screenshot taken of the Voodoo PC logo on the left, from one of the pictures posted by Rahul Sood on his blog).
And this other one I came across today totally reminded me of Call of Duty: World at War, and the reason is pretty obvious:
Hmm frustrated, tech-unsavvy users nowadays can actually make life hard for computer companies. Today I happened to (over)hear the ranting of a really dissatisfied guy who recently bought himself a new $350 consumer notebook PC and he had “heard” the battery life of his computer model was 3 to 3 and a half hours. But in his usage, he could only get “less than 1.5 hours of just web surfing, without wifi and on Windows Vista’s power saver mode too” […]
My all-time favorite notebook PC trackpad has gotta be the one on the HP Pavilion tx-series notebooks. The tactile feedback of the little dimples are absolutely fantastic and I have no problem finding the trackpad area, even when I’m not looking at it. And the thing still works great when using wet hands to touch. By the looks of it, I suppose the one on the Voodoo Envy 133 will offer the same, nice control as the HP tx-tablets. Next […]
Is somebody in the driver’s seat asleep? Nokia just launched their N97 top-of-the-line mobile phone today – which blows away pretty much everything else on the market right now. And while I think the “multimedia computer” thing is still a bunch of marketing bull, everything else sounds solid, if not fantastic. A large 3.5 inch touchscreen – a widescreen one at that, 32 GB internal memory with a microSD slot for even more, 5 megapixel camera with VGA video recording, […]
I always had questioned the need for a “third mouse button” on a notebook PC but the middle button above/below the HP Elitebook 8730w’s touchpad is certainly more useful than it looks. Coming from some of HP’s smaller notebook PCs with your conventional two buttons, I really appreciate the extra button. The MAIN two things I like about it: It’s so easy to activate the “track and scroll” feature to move left/right and up/down just by moving the cursor and […]
Are you kidding me? I just read from several websites about how people complain netbooks can do only “limited things” and are “useless for anything above 720p”. I guess there are a lot of people out they who enjoy jumping to conclusions or ranting about something they don’t even own!
I watch at least one (720p) movie a month on my HP Mini 2133 and nothing wrong. Sure I’m sure the netbook’s 1.6 GHz processor could’ve left out some frames while […]
