Courier and Slate may be dead, but the Hanvon B10 and F10 live

Courier and Slate may be dead, but the Hanvon B10 and F10 live

The Microsoft Courier and the HP Slate may be stillborn, but if you have tablet dreams that don’t involve the iPad you still have a few choices. I still think it's odd that HP put so much fanfare into the Slate only to kill it off, but we can hope the Slate turns up again running WebOS.

Black Dwarf storage array video work log is tedious, yet cool

There are few things better in this world to a geek than a project like building a sweet SFF RAID array for storing lots of data. The project is all the better when all the parts for said project are free thanks to companies like Newegg.

Facade Printer: the most exciting inkjet you’ll see [Video]

Facade Printer: the most exciting inkjet you’ll see [Video]

If HP's inkjets were as interesting as this DIY Facade Printer, the company wouldn't have had to buy Palm just to get some press coverage.  The handiwork of German product designers and engineers Martin Fussenegger, Michael Haas and Julian Adenauer, the inkjet-with-attitude is capable of precisely firing individual colored dots from up to 20 feet away, creating huge - and surprisingly accurate - murals on whatever wall is unlucky enough to get in the way.

Motorola RAZR3 prototype gets video demo

News that Motorola had canned their RAZR3 project all the way back in November 2008 was met with collective indifference, but beyond a small photo of the handset we've been left hanging as to what happened to the company's prototypes.  One such example has leaked to Travis the Tech Man and he's been showing it off on video.

Bridgestone QR-LPD flexible e-paper gets video demo

Bridgestone probably aren't the first company you'd associate with e-paper, but it seems they've been thinking about more than just tires of late.  They've rolled out a new flexible e-paper screen at Display 2011 in Japan this week, called QR-LPD or Quick Response Liquid Powder Display, which judging from this machine translation uses electrically-charged black and white particles held in a liquid substrate.

ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

You could be forgiven for assuming the 8.9-inch netbook segment had died; while we've seen a few convertible tablet netbooks using sub-9-inch panels, predominantly to shave off a few extra millimetres from a machine intended to be carried around, regular netbooks have gravitated to 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 panels.  So, quite a surprise to see the new ASUS Eee PC 900AX, an 8.9-inch relaunch... with a few caveats.

BenQ DC T1260 12MP touchscreen camera with high contrast processing spotted

BenQ have outed their latest digital camera, the point-and-shoot DC T1260, and as well as offering a 12-megapixel CCD, wide-angle 4x optical zoom and the company's HDR image enhancement technology - which combines multiple frames to work around high contrast images having reduced visibility - there's also a touchscreen for easier control.  The T1260 follows hot on the heels of the DC E1260, spotted earlier this week, which has the HDR system but lacks the 3-inch touchscreen.
