This Bluetooth videocamera headset might not bring the innovation of the Flip camera, but it's great for instant video sharing, and convenient wearing.
Samsung took a big shot at Apple at CTIA this week, boasting that its 10-inch Galaxy Tab Android tablet is thinner and lighter than the iPad 2. Our photos say otherwise. Regardless, the tablet competition just got hotter.
The new CEO wants us to forget the company’s recent tumultuous affairs and is working on crystalizing the message behind "The HP Way 2.0." View the video interview.
For the Facebook fiends, RIM has added several enhancements that let users take more Facebook actions (like Chat, for instance), more notification options and a refreshed user experience.
Hewlett-Packard crafted a media and analyst summit where it envisioned the company at the center of cloud, connectivity and software, providing the enabling technology and services on top. New company captain Leo Apotheker, who has been traveling the globe talking to business customers and employees, was expected to talk about bringing HP back to its roots: Innovation, R&D, and engineering, perhaps with a misguided desire for the company to be as hip as Apple.

And those products have been, at least on a feature basis, easily superior to the original iPad. Just as some of those products have s
Apple is expected to announce the next version of its fast-selling tablet, which has been a bigger enterprise success than many observers expected. With the competition paying closer attention to enterprise needs, it would be nice to see Apple do the same.
