Wacom's new Cintiq 21UX pen display ups the sensitivity, skips the multitouch and 'affordability' options (Engadget)

Mar 1st 2010 11:31AM Big "meh" on this update.

It's not much different from the old one, they've just improved the build quality... adding the improvements from the 12wx (better unscratchable glass, touchstrips and things) and increasing the price slightly.

Seems like they weren't really wanting to update the thing this soon, but they got tired of people sending their screens in to be replaced every 6 months. :P

Wacom have their tech locked down with patents, very, very securely.

ASUS Eee PC T101MT convertible gets handled twice (video) (Engadget)

Feb 28th 2010 12:43PM Useless review, didn't show what it's like to draw on the screen. Simple MS paint demos are a must for any tablet review.

LG launches Skinny Frame plasma HDTVs, hates on bezels (Engadget)

Feb 17th 2010 8:03PM Godammit Engadget, why do you have to have right click disabled on your image gallery?

I wanted to save those pics. ;_;

ASUS gets official with swivel-screen multitouch Eee PC T101MT (Engadget)

Feb 14th 2010 11:15PM Looks great, I think I'm getting this as soon as some more reviews come out.

I like the fact that it's got a button to easily rotate the screen. Nice feature.

Wacom Intuos4 succumbs to peer pressure, goes wireless (Engadget)

Feb 1st 2010 7:58AM Article is somewhat daft, to be honest. I mean, sure wireless might not be the most amazing thing for the intous, but then wireless keyboards and mice are of relatively marginal benefit when attached to desktop PCs... doesn't stop people from wanting to buy them though.

For $50 extra wireless is an excellent addition if you want to use the tablet on more than one PC, and be able to switch between them with ease.

There's your "freaky workplace scenario right there", an office that only needs the expensive tablet every now then then, but on multiple PCs.

The interesting thing about this release is that they've now got the wireless tablet tech in place, so it could be foreshadowing the release of a wireless cintiq (which would be the most awesome thing in the world, I use one currently and wireless is the #1 thing I'd like to see in the next version)

Wireless cintiq would probably appeal to non-artists too... all the power of your desktop PC beamed straight to a tablet.. I'd pay a small fortune for the thing if it was lightweight and had an OLED screen, too.

EVGA's W555 motherboard gets a once over, can hold seven GPUs (Engadget)

Jan 28th 2010 4:42PM 48 gb of RAM using 2gb sticks also sounds pretty good. Or even just 1gb sticks would give you more than enough.

I'd personally have uses for 4 of those slots, but 3 of them would be filled with cheap cards just for monitors ++.

Far more interesting is the option to use some of the slots for PCIe SSDs... raid 0 together four 64 gb drives for an ultra-fast 256gb monster... vrooom!

Apple iPad first hands-on! (update: video!) (Engadget)

Jan 27th 2010 3:39PM Gotta love all the "with html 5 blah blah flash dead" comments on here.

There is no way that it's going to be possible to build applications, games, high-end websites with html 5 just because it adds a new video tag.

There are uses for flash beyond your daily web porn vids you know.

Dell goes pro with 27-inch UltraSharp U2711 WQHD LCD monitor (hands-on) (Engadget)

Jan 7th 2010 4:36AM Glad to see something in between the size of a 24" and a 30" being offered... the resolution really is the important point.

I'll wait for reviews on this one.. I do prefer everything for a single app on one screen if possible, and interface bloat is starting to make my 24" screens feel cramped.. width is the main thing needed, and 30" screens are out of my price range.

So far all my species' evolution has allowed me to master is the art of sticking black tape over all of the annoying blinding LEDs that turn most gadgets into an irritating imitation of xmas tree lights. Making covers for the clunky monstrosities that are VGA ports are far beyond the ability of my clumsy digits.

Yes, I'm also one of those people who also hates loud ticking clocks, don't try to rationalise a fruitloop. :P
