Having technology in the classroom can make learning more effective and more fun for kids all around the world.

A new tablet specifically designed for kids will be hitting the market soon called the Fable.

Entourage Pocket Edge gets fondled by CNET

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Nov 9, 2010 6:06 pm

Android powered tablets and eReaders are something that there are lots of folks looking forward to out there. You might recognize the Entourage name as the company that offered up the dual screen Edge tablet earlier this year. That thing has an e-ink screen on one side and a LCD on the other. The big issue for some users was that the thing was so large and bulky.

The company has come back with another product called the Entourage Pocket Edge. The new Pocket version has the same dual screen and runs the Android OS, but it is smaller. The left side of the tablet has a 6-inch e-ink screen and the right has a 7-inch resistive touch LCD. That LCD has a resolution of 800 x 480.

Lenovo slips IdeaPad U260 into line with little pomp

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Laptops | Posted: Nov 9, 2010 5:04 pm

Lenovo has been making computers for a long time and after years of making sturdy looking machines that were little changed visually from when the IBM name was on the lid, the company has finally taken to making their machines look good over the last year or so. The latest new notebook from Lenovo is the new IdeaPad U260. The machine has quietly been added to the IdeaPad line and while we are short of the full specs at this time, we do have enough to know that the little ultraportable sounds good.

The machine has a 12.5-inch matte finish HD resolution LCD. I loathe the glossy and glare prone screens most notebooks so the matte screen is a great feature for me and other folks that need to work in bright environments. The notebook lacks an optical drive, which is common in the ultraportable market today and it has no ExpressCard slot either. The machine will offer both ULV Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and has a 4-cell battery.
