Asus R50 and R70 UMPC – amazing moves from Asus in the mobile space

The R50 is the really small black one and is almost pocketable in size. The R70 is the larger one with the orange/red surrounding bezel.


Asus ARES CG6150 Gaming Desktop – looks like a fragging good time

Its big, its black, and it lights up red and its made by ASUS. ASUS is a company known for making some of the best and most dependable components and with their reach covering motherboards, soundcards, cases, power supplies, and video cards, its no surprise they took the next logical steps and made their own desktop.


Asus Eee PC grows to 8.9-inches – hustling more real estate, on your screen

Foxconn partnering with DTS – finally integrated audio will sound less awful

DTS is a fairly well respected company when it comes to making audio sound good, so hopefully their new partnership with on of the world’s largest motherboard manufacturers can make the current state of affairs better. The two technologies, DTS Connect, and DTS Surround Sensation, are both to be integrated into the motherboards.


Massive Software – showing off early SkyNet prototypes

Massive software is at CeBIT this year, now you might be wondering why we are writing about a software company, that would be because they have decided to start applying their talents to robots. In fact, their display has a robot showing off their new AI software that allows the robot to intelligently learn and change his reaction to the same stimuli if need be.

So basically, we need to start finding the real John Connor now, or we’re all screwed. The robot (or the software, or both) is called Zeno.


OpenScape UC by Siemens: High-Def video conferencing
