- Thu, 23 May 2013 04:04:19 +0000: HP Thinks Giant Tablets Are a Good Idea - Mobile
Windows 8 has officially created a new category: the monster tablet. Last fall's Sony Tap 20 could have been dismissed as a one-off aberration, but others have since launched giant screens equipped with batteries, including HP, who just unveiled the Rove 20.
Why Rove? Because it can do exactly that — the 20-inch display is fully portable with almost 4 hours of battery life. Although its mobility, along with the 10-finger multi-touch display, technically makes it a tablet, it's really better thought of as an all-in-one PC that you can move from room to room when you need to.
Much like the Tap 20 and Lenovo's IdeaCenter Horizon, the Rove has a special hinge that lets you use it in many different ways. Stood up at a high angle, it's great as a normal all-in-one or even an "easel" for a painting app. At a low angle, it's more suited for drafting. The hinge is made so you can easily adjust the angle with one hand. Read more...More about Hp, Hewlett Packard, Tablets, Windows 8, and Tech

Syncing audio to a Bluetooth speaker is a common practice these days, but sending it wirelessly to two old-school speakers at the same time is a thing of the future.
A new Kickstarter project for the Vertus, which has already reached its $40,000 funding goal on the site, allows you to share music via Bluetooth to more than just one speaker.
Here's how it works: If a friend comes over with, say, a Jawbone Jambox and starts playing music, you will be able to connect an older speaker so both devices play the same song. The speakers can be in the same room, right next to each other or other parts of the house. Read more...More about Speakers, Kickstarter, Tech, Gadgets, and Mobile

Cook said in a statement before the Senate subcommitee in Washington D.C. that a factory in Texas will be used to build a new line of Macs. The move would be a part of an effort for the company to keep taxes lower on products.
"We're investing $100 million to build a Mac product line here in the U.S.," said Cook, according to an AllThingsD report. "The product will be assembled in Texas, include components made in Illinois and Florida, and rely on equipment produced in Kentucky and Michigan."
