The rumors were true: Two of the most hated companies in America have teamed up to stream games to your cable box. If you pay for Comcast’s fancy X1 service, you could soon be playing titles like Plants vs. Zombies, Real Racing 2 and NBA Jam on your TV without so much as a disc or a download.
Comcast's X1 entertainment OS is getting a big update which will improve features across the platform's services, and also introduces a slew of new ones to the mix as well. The result will change how you use Comcast services across your TVs, mobiles devices, and computers.
You already have NASA to thank in part for everyday, Earthly wonders like memory foam and water filters, but a new one is coming to the list: powered exoskeletons.
The Lenovo X1 Carbon does the impossible. It makes a business laptop—a business anything—cool. Cool because it looks good, sure, but also because it works the way it's supposed to. And somehow, that's become one of the bigger compliments in tech.
The Lenovo X1 Carbon arrived at our office a few days ago, and while the full review will be up early next week, we wanted to give you our first impressions of Lenovo's ruggedized ultrabook. So far: Really good.
Tablets may be the next big thing in mobile computing, but don't count out ultrabooks just yet. At least not until you've given Lenovo's Thinkpad X1 Carbon—a feather-weight, carbon fiber workhorse a closer look. It's tough, it's light, and you don't have to be an office drone to crave it.
Do you break every gadget you buy, no matter how beautiful or expensive or great, or how careful you pretend to be? Yeah, same here. But that doesn't mean you've got to be relegated to a life of broken everything and empty bank accounts. Here's some gear that'll stand the test of your crippling irresponsibility.
I just got some mitts-on time with Lenovo's new notebook, the X1 Hybrid. What's interesting about it is that it can boot into a battery-doubling low-power mode that runs off of a Snapdragon processor and custom software based on a certain kernel we all know.
Lenovo refers to their ThinkPad X1 as a crossover computer. Made for the business set, the Intel Core i7 processor packed into its 0.67-inch body will appeal to a more consumer crowd as well. This wants to go mainstream.
The Shogun Bros. Chameleon X-1 Mouse is just like a regular mouse with 7 buttons and a scroll wheel. Well, until it's not. Once you flip the mouse over, there's a full-fledged, Playstation-like game controller underneath. Best of both worlds?
It looks complex, but put Inon's X-2 housing in perspective and you will appreciate its grace. Meant for Panasonic's micro four thirds GF1, the X-2 adds bulk, but only enough to make your camera around the size of an SLR.
We teamed with HD Guru Gary Merson again, this time to find the best TVs under $1000. This economy has really shocked prices. Forget the off-brands. You can now get a top-name good-looking 50" TV for $700, and more...
Last week's leak couldn't have been more on: Leica's officially announced the their full-frame followup to the retro-fabulous M8, as well as some chum for more mainstream users, in the form of the APS-C-sensored X1 compact, for new Leica recruits.
A supposed shot of Leica's M9—expected to be announced 9/9/09—complete with specs, was found on this Flickr page that's now locked, and it looks way interesting: a full-frame 18-megapixel CCD sensor. Oh, and what's this, the Leica X1?
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 spyshots we saw earlier this month got a little more meaty today as someone has allegedly leaked the mobile's official specifications.
It may not compare to the io-Drive, but DDrdrive's X1 still packs a punch in terms of speed and price.
With Pioneer out, Panasonic is licking their chops in the plasma department (with some decent LCDs too). Either way, they make some of the best sets available: here's a guide to their 2009 lineup.
Sony's Win-Mo 6.1 Xperia X1 finally has a firm U.S. release date set: November 28, better known as Black Friday. Although unlike most things on sale on that fateful day of darkness, the Xperia will not be a particularly awesome deal at $800 for an unsubsidized, unlocked X1. It'll work on AT&T's 3G network here in the…
