The first time I heard that HP was looking to put webOS into printers I thought the feature would be of little value. The New York Times has a report today on a new feature in printers, some of which will likely use webOS, that is very interesting.
HP is set to launch a new line of printers this month for consumers, with business printers coming later, that have their own email addresses. A web-connected printer with its own email address opens a whole new world for users of portable devices like the iPhone and iPad.

In efforts to knock Apple off its high horse Samsung is preparing a full line-up of tablet devices that will first be introduced in South Korea sometime in late Q3 to early Q4, ideally before the iPad launches there to get a head start.
Samsung calls these the Galaxy Tab line and there will be 7-, 8- and 10-inch tablets coming. All of these tablets will run Android and have a TouchWiz user interface. it's expected they'll all sport 3G connectivity as well as WiFi and SK Telecom whom is South Korea's biggest mobile service provider is looking to sell them in big, big numbers thanks to aggressive pricing.
Tucked away at the back of ASUS' booth was a pre-release version of their upcoming Eee PC 1015T which the folks at Engadget got some brief hands-on time with.
This particular unit is said to be AMD based using one of AMD's V105 1.2GHz processors. It has a 10.1-inch LED-backlit (1024x600) display and comes with options for up to 4GB of RAM, 250 or 320GB HDD (plus 500GB of web storage), has Radeon HD 4200 IGP, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, optional Bluetooth 3.0 and a 6-cell battery giving up to 6 hours of use. The unit is also said to include USB 3.0 connectivity and will come in color options of black, white, red and blue.
GIGABYTE had a large VGA display at Computex this year, the majority of which are made to stand out in the market using non-reference cooling solutions, factory overclocks and more attractive bundles.
One of the real standouts on display, though, would have been a new member of its highly impressive SuperOverclock series video cards that's based on the GTX 470. This is one GTX 470 well worth having and leaves the reference design for dead.
The GTX 470 SuperOverclock (GV-N470SO-13I) has been built using GIGABYTE's proprietory Ultra Durable VGA Plus (UDV+) technology on a modified (longer) PCB with superior VRM (12+2 phase). Further to this, GIGABYTE says it has hand-picked the GPU and memory chips for these particular cards to ensure optimum stability and the highest overclocking potential.
Swinging out a final playing card in closing of Computex this year, Thermaltake has bettered its line-up of high performance Toughpower series power supplies with some new 80 PLUS Gold Certified models.
The new Toughpower Grand series sport a sleek glossy black finish with rounded edges and currently there are two models in the series; a 650W and 750W.
