HP refresh enterprise notebooks, show off 32-hour battery life capable of watching the LotR trilogy on a single charge

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: Feb 25, 2011 2:20 am

HP now have a notebook that is capable of watching the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy on a single charge. Color me impressed HP. The new notebooks feature new processors and a sturdier, more power efficient design. HP's latest offerings go by the names of EliteBook and ProBook and are constructed with HP's "Forge" framework that includes aluminum-allow hinges, titanium-allow display latches, a magnesium-reinforced ABS chassis, a bottom-case drain in case of spills and a HP "DisplaySafe" frame.

The EliteBook 8460p (14-inch) and 8560p (15.6-inch) seem to be the premium outings which feature the HP DuraCase that meets the MIL-STD 810G military standards and boast up to 32 hours of runtime with an HP BB09 Ultra Extended Life battery. The ProBook line features the same attributes while offering more options in configurations ranging from ultra-light to desktop replacement.

Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed: Authenticity Realism Trailer

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Feb 25, 2011 2:01 am

Remember Gran Turismo? Well, you won't after watching the below video. Shift 2: Unleashed has its eyes on the prize and judging by this video it looks like it's going to take the #1 position on the podium.

 

 

The trailer features some insane eye-candy, and even more insane levels of realism. You can see the depth the team as gone into to make Shift 2 Unleashed a near-realistic driving game. For those of you who don't own steering wheels, I'm pretty sure Logitech just saw me posting this news and have started production on some new steering wheels.

Apple release OS X 10.7 "Lion" to developers

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Software | Posted: Feb 25, 2011 2:00 am

Apple has let the Lion out of its den and out to developers around the world. Apple's OS X 10.7 "Lion" is Apple's next-gen personal computer operating system and a preview build has been released to developers, it is much different to the current Snow Leopard in that it merges bits of iOS into the new operating system.

Apple states this in their press release as "some of the best ideas from iPad and brings them back to the Mac." The results? 10.7 is built around the Mac OS X app store and multi-touch, a new Launchpad offers the ability for users to arrange and run apps similar to how they would on an iOS-based device. There's also a new feature called "Mission Control" which allows users to use the multi-touch input to preview and switch between apps that are currently running.

Elder Scrolls Skyrim trailer - ready to get your medieval on?

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Feb 25, 2011 1:51 am

The trailer to Bethesda's latest Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, has been released and boy does it look impressive. We finally get to see the game in action with it's brand-new, built from the ground up graphics engine.

 

 

Impressive, huh? The UI looks very slick with nothing to interfere with your fight for survival. It really increases the atmosphere (for me at least, and just in a video) as you're not constantly checking stats. The trailer shows off some impressive fighting (you versus a freakin' dragon!) and shows off some of the levels in which the graphics are fantastic.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Internet & Websites | Posted: Feb 25, 2011 1:30 am

Google is a monster that never sleeps, it never stops pumping out new ideas and features to it's ever-growing collection of doom. The latest? Google Recipe View. Google Recipe View helps you find recipes across the web.

 

TweakTown image news/1/8/18970_622_google_recipe_view_baked_to_perfection.jpg

 

After searching for a recipe or ingredient, you'll now have the ability to click the little knife and spoon icon on the left of Google's site and will have options to choose from such as ingredients, cook time or calories. Usually when searching for a recipe or ingredients, you'd get lots of results but most of them wouldn't be for recipes - now you can narrow that search to just display recipes.
