As far as modifications go, it's usually the most unique, shiny, and ridiculous of the bunch that get the most attention. And while the Radius PC may not look like it's all that much in the shininess department, it's certainly unique enough to be a casemod that someone out there would probably enjoy. After all, sometimes you want to have that tower of yesteryear, so why not update it with a display?

HP ENVY 17 3D Review

HP ENVY 17 3D Review

Welcome to a review of the biggest fattest HP 3D desktop replacement notebook you'll ever come across. Not that it's the biggest that'll ever be made, but when you've got this thing sitting on your desk, you'll wonder how you ever got along without such an abundance of screen real-estate on what the world, up until recently, was calling a laptop computer. This is the HP ENVY 17 3D, and not only does it have full 3D capabilities and a width bigger than your humble narrator's torso, it's got a screen so bright it makes the real world seem yellow.

Mobile Device Dominates American’s Hearts and Pockets

Mobile Device Dominates American’s Hearts and Pockets

I love the research from the Pew Research Center. In their latest report called "American's and Their Gadgets" they shared that the cell phone is the most owned piece of personal technology among American's.   The report details that 85% of American's now own a cell phone with Desktops and Notebooks fighting for second and third.  Now this shouldn't shock anyone given how hot the mobile device sector has been over the past few years.   However it is interesting to note the ownership of the other devices referenced in the report.

When reading the report it was not surprising that the mobile phone is heavily owned and desired by younger consumers however the report indicated that 58% of adults 65 and older now also own a mobile phone.    I would be curious to see more data about how this breaks down for feature phones vs smart phone ownership but that will have to be for a later report.   I would like to call attention to one more piece of data on this chart.
