AMD Trinity official: Hands-on

AMD is back, and the company isn't willing to take a back seat to Intel any longer. Trinity, AMD's second-generation APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) is official, and it's the mainstream platform the company expects to challenge Intel's Ivy Bridge in everything from ultrabook-rivaling ultrathins, though notebooks and into desktops and all-in-ones.

Much Ado About Booth Babes

Much Ado About Booth Babes

If you look up the term "objectification of women" in your college dictionary, you'll probably see a definition illustrated by a photograph of a tall, slender, blond woman wearing skimpy shorts and a tight t-shirt, standing next to a table stacked with plastic cell phone carrying cases. Recently, there's been a lot of hubbub over these hired guns who stand at booths set up at the trade shows that are dominated by men. The video game shows, the technology shows, the car shows.

Yummy carbon nanotube cupcakes absorb terahertz laser light

If you want to get the attention of the kids running amuck in my house during the summer all you need to do is say cupcakes and everyone comes running.

HTC Sensation Review

HTC Sensation Review

Once, Android's primary challenge was the iPhone: proving that Google's open-source platform - and the devices that ran it - were good enough to share retail space with Apple's groundbreaking smartphone. Now, with dominant market-share and increasingly polished handsets, the battle is between 'droids. Into the fray drops the HTC Sensation, the company's new dual-core flagship. It's certainly the best-spec'd HTC to date, but is it enough to beat Samsung's all-conquering Galaxy S II? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Raumfeld Multi-Room Audio System Review

Just as CDs have quickly been overtaken by digital downloads, so the number of people wanting to get their music off the computer and through speakers in their living room, kitchen and bedroom has increased. Wading into that market is Raumfeld, promising "Hi-Fi for the digital age" with their eponymous modular system. Still, you can't get far in multi-room audio without tripping over Sonos, so the question is whether the little-known German start-up can compete. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

XPERIA X10 Review

XPERIA X10 Review

If it feels like it's a long time since we first saw the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, that's because it really has been. First announced back in November 2009, and only now approaching the market, the X10 runs the risk - like other Sony Ericsson smartphones, it has to be said - of making promises that prove underwhelming by the time it delivers on them. With handsets like the Nexus One already on the market, is there still a place for the XPERIA X10? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Pocketbook 360° reviewed: fastest ereader around

Given the number of wireless-enabled, high-aspiring ereaders we've seen promised for launch and then failing to turn up on schedule - Plastic Logic and Spring Design, we're looking at you - there are times when you wonder if you're better off with a regular ebook device that does the basics well.  One such example might be the Pocketbook 360°, a non-wireless reader around the size of a CD case and half the weight of a Kindle or nook; it may not let you download ebooks while on the move, but it does apparently boast super-fast speed and usability.
