HP and Sprint making out in the locker room

HP and Sprint making out in the locker room

Not really, but HP is going to start embedding Sprint’s mobile broadband hardware into their systems. Mostly it will be the business level notebooks, but it’s a step in the right direction.

They are jointly marketing the venture with HP marketing the upside of using Sprint, the fastest and largest mobile broadband network in America, and Sprint selling the merits of HP laptops to business users. The chips will be based on the EV-DO Rev. A technology.

And you thought you were mad at Comcast

And you thought you were mad at Comcast

This seemingly kind old lady got so angered with Comcast, she waltzed into their offices with their equipment in arms and then proceeded to smash it to bits, with a hammer, she bashed it all to hell. She did have a good reason though, sadly she got arrested too.

So here is the scenario, you call up to get Comcast’s Comcastic Triple Play installed and set up, the first time around they, without any warning or notification, cancel your appointment. Then finally, the second time they come, but they half ass it and leave before they finished setting everything up.

Just when you thought the SOHO market was going sour, Toshiba has come along and dropped a couple of Multi-Function Printers just for that segment. The e-STUDIO180s and e-STUDIO200s will help your small or home office out by adding printing, scanning, copying, and faxing capabilities.

The e-STUDIO180s is a black and white printer, copier, and color scanner. The e-STUDIO200s is the same thing, but add the ability to fax.

Somehow I don’t think this is what Luda’ had in mind when he said “Roll Out”. The back of this fairly appealing vehicle rolls out to expose a lot of underwater photography gear, as well as a mobile office on the inside.

Speaking of niche markets, anyways, the downside is the two are exclusive, you can’t keep the scuba gear tucked away and just use the office, you have to roll the back out in order to gain access to the office part. Overall it looks pretty amazing for a concept, or more likely proof-of-concept car.

Get beamed up with Lasse Kleins abduction lamp

Maybe you can't let go of the X-Files, perhaps you keep a copy of How to Serve Mankind on you at all times. Either way this lamp will look awesome on your desk. Designed by Lasse Klein, the alien abduction lamp uses a light bulb inside the craft to light up the windows and create a nifty tractor beam effect on the glass stand.

Presentations come of age: Ventuz Technology

Presentations come of age: Ventuz Technology

I'd wager there are few people reading this who haven't suffered at least once from the modern malaise they call "Death by PowerPoint"  Now not wishing to unfairly malign the Microsoft presentation package - even the least forgiving audience member would grudgingly agree that it's the crapness of the presenter that kills you, not the software (and accompanying slide transitions, sound effects and ridiculous animations) - but it's a sad fact of life that where a yawn-worthy demonstration goes, their software often lurks behind.

Thankfully there are companies like Ventuz Technology, who blend together touch, gesture and proximity-sensitive interfaces controlling multiple interconnected displays, with a software package that allows static and dynamically updated information to be presented in 2D and 3D.

 

The old switcheroo

The old switcheroo

Ok, we know that some of you out there should be working instead of browsing through the latest gadgets here at Slashgear, and that's ok with us. Your boss, on the other hand, might not be as quick to forgive you as we are. So for you guys, we have a special gadget called the StealthSwitch. With a quick tap of the foot, the casual passerby, or snooping boss, will think you've been working away the whole time.

The great thing about this little device is that it doesn't just minimize what you're doing, it completely hides it, and mutes the sound too. The great thing is that it works just by tapping your foot. Gone are the days of alt-tabbing and looking over your shoulder. Now you can browse in peace.

Plus Vision M-11 Copyboard

Plus Vision M-11 Copyboard

We all know how teachers or bosses like to scribble away on whiteboards, and what a pain it is to jot it all down. Or, if you’re smart you might have already opted to take digital pictures with your discreet cell phone cam rather than go at it with pen and paper. But now, there is a new option from Plus Vision, called the M-11 copyboard, where you wont risk getting your phone confiscated.

Using optical sensors placed behind the screen, the M-11 can output the scribbles and diagrams as PNG files to any attached printer or to a USB thumb drive. However, at a whopping $1700, its unlikely your teacher or boss will be easily convinced to upgrade.

Totally the most exciting dry erase board ever
