HP’s new Envy 17 Leap Motion SE is the first with Leap Motion inside. So it’s the first PC to recognize when you flip it off. Or try to Force choke it.
I’m being told that my crappy experience with the Surface with Windows RT was because I didn’t shell out an additional $120 on a keyboard. Seems legit.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fellowes for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I’ve gone through so many shredders over the years. They’ve all survived near-endless stacks of papers, but every one of them has shuffled off its metal coil due to a random paperclip or staple making it […]
After watching Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich / Samsung Galaxy Nexus launch live on YouTube last night (and providing running commentary in my Google+ Profile all the while), I’ve come to one conclusion: Android 4.0 (“Ice Cream Sandwich”) will be awesome. But, to that end, did anybody really expect it to be worse than what we’ve […]
How can you tell if the plug (or port) on the end of your cable is male or female? While it may seem like common sense in most cases, some cables can pose a bit of a challenge when determining the sex. The tradition of labeling connectors either male or female exists throughout the electronics […]
The HP TouchPad is out and LockerGnome’s Jake Ludington picked one up try out. Comparing the TouchPad to the iPad yielded interesting results. While design differences between the two are a world apart, the heart of their differences lie in the software. While running the Microsoft FishIETank browser test, the Safari browser appeared very underpowered […]

LockerGnome’s Jake Ludington has decided to give the HP TouchPad a try. The webOS-driven tablet computer has been receiving positive reviews out of the gate, and the ability for users to experience flash elements from the web is a clear advantage in cases where the user frequently uses web-based tools that require some level of […]
How do you know your product has failed? When it’s sitting at the top of Woot – after Not Selling anywhere else. [EDIT: for the sake of Varun's sanity, a very spirited commenter in the thread below, I amended this paragraph to help him better understand.] I don’t know about you, but I hate buying […]
Setting the right wireless channel on your router can make a big difference on how well your Wi-Fi connection works. While most users may be just fine with whatever the default settings may be, others can experience frequent packet drops resulting in the appearance of an unstable or even unusable connection. These issues can be […]
Networking is complicated. Businesses often spend a great deal of their available revenue on their IT department in order to keep their various systems talking to each other. At home, small and medium sized networks are becoming more and more common as our devices begin to integrate the net in to what they do. In […]
The Minority Report featured some incredible theoretical technologies, some of which have continued to interest geeks for years. One of these technologies was a system in which you are able to interact with the user-interface with a few hand gestures Now, imagine if you were able to control Windows 7 in much the same way. […]
Brandon Wirtz and Jake Ludington of LockerGnome joined me in a discussion about the various differences between the iPhone and Android in relation to how the keyboards differ on the two platforms. While they both share many of the same core functions and features, there are a few notable differences. The iPhone uses predictive text […]
Jake Ludington of LockerGnome is looking for a tablet small enough to fit in his cargo pants pocket with the capability to run Android apps. The Nook Color by Barnes and Noble may be exactly what he needs to get the job done. So, can the Nook compete with other Android tablets? With a 7-inch […]
A member of the LockerGnome community sent in the question, “As more and more of our programs become web apps, do you think speed and processing power is losing importance in the computing world?” As more and more of our programs are becoming web apps, the importance of processing power comes in to question.
