MegaUpload’s takedown by the numbers

MegaUpload’s takedown by the numbers

Believe it or not, it was and is possible to track the traffic that MegaUpload and the rest of the piracy-laden file-sharing groups out there have compared to the rest of the web. A series of studies have been conducted by a few sources we're checking out today and the results are staggering, depending on how you look at it, with the first giant being the one hour following the January 19th raid of MegaUpload. In that one hour, the entirety of the Internet lost between 2 and 3 precent of its total volume in traffic.

HP Folio 13 Review

HP Folio 13 Review

Everyone has an laptop based on Intel's Ultrabook spec these days, and if they don't already, they showed it off at CES last week. Just being thin and light isn't enough to stand out in the crowd now, and HP knows that. To that end, they've produced the Folio 13, an Ultrabook that they're aiming at the business market. The 13-inch laptop still manages to come in at under a grand, so it's worth considering even if you don't spend most of your working hours between one terminal and another. How does the Folio 13 stack up to the rest of the Ultrabook competition? I spent the last week finding out.

CES 2012 Tablet Round-Up

CES 2012 Tablet Round-Up

This year's Consumer Electronics Show revealed itself to be the real Ice Cream Sandwich treat for tablets in the Android sector, with one whole load of crap tablets attempting to burst the bubble of the very few high-class units that were or will be soon certified by Google.

Then there's oddities galore like the Samsung Galaxy Note, a device we'd seen late 2011, but until now had never had a chance to peek at it on a USA carrier - it's time!

Razer’s Project Fiona concept brings PC gaming to the tablet world

Razer’s Project Fiona concept brings PC gaming to the tablet world

We heard about an ambitious new project from the gaming experts at Razer even before CES started, but a staggered release kept us away from their ostentatious booth until now. The "Project Fiona" concept device is a full x86 Windows 7 computer squeezed into a tablet device. Two things make Fiona unique: one, it's a tablet built wit the PC horsepower for serious modern gaming, and two, its unique control mechanism pairs physical buttons and triggers with a full touchscreen.
