It’s always a good day when the Syfy channel announces its making science fiction entertainment. It’s n even better day when that entertainment is a TV adaptation of Frederick Pohl’s Hugo and Nebula award-winning scifi novel Gateway, which will be co-developed by Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick.
Set in a dystopian wreck of a future, Gateway follows one man on a get-rich-or-die-trying mission to an unknown location, with unknown results, on an alien ship with a crap return rate. It's a menacing tale, and now it's going to be a TV series. A dark, dark TV series.
If you're champing at the bit to get hold of a Windows 8 computer, you can now buy an Acer or Gateway from HSN.com—just be warned that it's loaded with crapware and likely a poor idea.
Besides its aluminum body and USB 3.0 ports, the Gateway ID47 laptop will attract eyes because of its display. Similar to LG's laptop, Gateway stretched and thinned the ID47 bezel to fit a 14-inch screen where a 13.3-inch display would normally reside.
Long before he was named Best Fan Writer — way back in 1978, in fact — Frederik Pohl won another Hugo (and a Nebula too), for his novel Gateway. And yikes, what a book.
The NV59C66U might not have the sexiest name, but its integrated WiMax card might be titillating enough to make up for it—assuming you live somewhere that it matters.
Gateway's introducing two new Core i7 gaming desktops today, and you'd be forgiven for not being able to tell them apart at first glance. The lower-end model is essentially the same rig—but $400 less than its $1700 counterpart.
With the Lenovo laptop/netbook CES leak still fresh in our minds, let us consider Toshiba and Gateway this afternoon, and the netbooks we now know they'll be bringing to the show as well:
Nine years ago, as a young tech reporter at Time Magazine, I co-wrote a buyer's guide with the latest and greatest gear known to man. Today, it sounds ridiculous.
Windows 7 is just around the corner, and Gateway's new 23-inch ZX6800 and 20-inch ZX4800 all-in-one PCs are ready for your greasy multi-finger gestures. They also include a bunch of custom touch-enabled apps for managing music, photos, and social networks.
A tipster has dished up a number of photos and spec details on a previously unknown Gateway Tablet PC. Likely arriving on October 22nd (alongside Windows 7), it has a convertible 11.6-inch screen, and an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
Say what you want about the Gateway LT3100's AMD processor and operating system options, but at least it had an angle. The $300, Atom-based 10.1-inch LT2000, on the other hand, is as predictable as netbooks get.
What's up, Gateway? You think you're too good for the Atom? All the other netbooks are using it. Doesn't this really make your new LT3100 more of a tiny-screened, $400 laptop? Yes, plus LED backlight and multitouch.
Ah, the heady days of 1994. Back then, computers were beige and sold with surfing cow wallpaper, and we liked it that way, dammit.
Acer is the number one maker of netbooks, so it's not surprising they've got a brand new brigade. They're all 10.1 and 11.6 inchers—the days of the 9-inch netbook are over.
Gateway's ID series are the first computers designed by Pininfarina (of Ferrari fame). The signature aesthetic seems to be the swoop at the bottom of the monitor—not mind-blowing, but better than BMW's HP effort.
Gateway will now no longer be selling its PCs through Gateway.com and has shut down all its direct PC sales to become a 100% retail channel PC company. The move is only somewhat surprising-its newish parent company Acer has always focused on offering its goods through resellers. But seeing how Gateway was one of the…
