They say if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck. That saying can certainly be applied to the netbook world. You can call a netbook whatever you want to call it, but I know one when I see it and you can’t convince me it’s worth twice as much as its competition just because you don’t call the machine a netbook.
Apple just refreshed its MacBook Pro lineup with some new features, which wasn’t surprising, but is still a good thing. A lot of people have been waiting for these, so hopefully, you didn’t just buy one yesterday.

Hacked together by Zhek Kromtor, his computing rig is used for playing multiple rounds of EVE Online simultaneously.
Nearly 40 years ago, Filipino-American scientist Leon O. Chua came up with the idea of a memory resistor, or memristor for short. Yesterday, April 8, Hewlett-Packard showed devices that the company made using memristors in place of transistors.
CMU researcher Chris Harrison’s Skinput is an amazing new technology. It’s a new interface concept that just makes sense, and to top it off, it’s also pretty darn cool. Input devices haven’t changed much in the last few decades.
