There’s one day left to enter our HP Magic Giveaway, courtesy of HP and Microsoft. We’re giving away $6,000 worth of gear, including four computers (a 25 inch touchscreen desktop, two laptops and HP’s newest Netbook), a media extender, printer and a bunch of software/DVDs.
That’s a lot of kit for even for the most hardened geek, so we’re encouraging the winner to also share the magic by giving some of the prize away…
There was lots of activity in the Digital Lifestyle space in 08 with new devices, services and platforms being launched, and some of our favorites from last year receiving significant updates. Here’s my pick of the best ten Digital Lifestyle products of 08.
It was already pretty much certain that Palm will finally unveil its next-generation mobile operating system, along with a brand new device, at January’s Consumer Electronics Show (the press invite reads: “Come to CES to see all that Palm New-ness you’ve been waiting for”) and now BusinessWeek is stirring the pot.
My biggest beef with the Vudu set-top movie box is that it’s always been a one trick pony, and an expensive one at that, focusing on paid-for movies. That’s changed with the company announcing support for a range of free online video as well as images from photo sharing sites.
It’s not very often that I find myself agreeing with a likely overpaid analyst, especially one who admits that they have no “inside information”, but I think Ezra Gottheil of Technology Business Research could be onto something.
That’s a wrap. Thanks for reading and happy holidays.
