Doorknob Condition – More effective than a “Do not disturb” sign

One doesn’t really think of doors as being very high-tech. Granted, you do have some with pretty high-tech security locks and biometric scanners.. This doorknob doesn’t have all of that fancy high-tech stuff inside it, but it does have a high-tech look about it.


New Panasonic 8GB Pro SDHC SD Memory Card

That’s right, 8GB which apparently equates to a little over three thousand images. With the number of digital pictures I have taken, I couldn’t even begin to fill that card, thankfully its uses aren’t limited to photography.

The full name for the card is the RP-SDV08GU1K. It contains a class 6 speed specification allowing transfers to top out at around 6MB/s.

SlashGear Review: Gateway MT6839b Laptop

How long will it be until the desktop PC is, for mainstream customers at least, pronounced dead? It’s been several years since sales of laptops exceeded their table-bound brethren, and ever since the numbers have increased and the places you can find notebooks for sale have grown more and more unusual.

Gateway are one manufacturer who have partly stepped outside of the usual retail channels with their range. Their UK arm were good enough to send me an MT6839b – a model currently sold in this country’s leading supermarket retailer Tesco – but equivalents of which can be found in other channels too. With a MRSP of £599 ($1,220 at today’s awful exchange rate) it’s a good example of an entry-point machine for families and students.
