  • Rackspace challenges lawsuit-happy patent holder

    Cloud hosting provider Rackspace Hosting is striking back against patent holder Rotatable Technologies, a Texas company that has filed patent infringement cases against more than a dozen companies in the past year.

  • Computer, Notebook and Tablet Tech Treasures [2011 Cool Yule Tools]

    We’ve always had a category covering the world of computers in our Cool Yule Tools holiday gift guide. But then computers gave way to <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/supp/2010/hgg/110810-coolyule-computers-notebooks.html">notebooks</a> (so we combined the category), and then tablets have entered the scene. With the arrival and success of the iPad and other tablets, many have said that “the PC is dead”, and we’ll admit, our choices of cool computers are fewer than in years past. But there are still some nice systems out there, here are a bunch of desktops, notebooks, and yes, tablets, that we think would make for some good gifts:

  • iPad 2 vs. business class tablets

    Tech lovers have been flocking to the <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/news/2010/111910-apple-ipad-resources.html">iPad</a> 2 and other tablets in order to watch movies, read books, surf the Web and make video calls on the latest, greatest, thinnest, lightest, coolest devices. But where do tablets fit within the enterprise?

  • What you get with $US199 tablets

    The demand for low-priced tablets has gone up in recent months, as witnessed by the mad rush to buy Hewlett-Packard's $US99 TouchPad tablet. However, at such low prices, these devices lack the speed and graphics found in Apple's iPad or Samsung's Galaxy Tab, which have the latest processors and graphics hardware. But at that price, the tablets are decent entry-level devices for first-time users.

  • What $300 or less buys in a tablet

    Prices of consumer tablets are now falling as device makers try to pull buyers away from Apple's iPad, which is priced starting at US$499. Some tablets under $300 may sacrifice features, but are good for basic activities like web browsing, video playback and casual gaming.

  • Android tablets undercutting iPad prices

    In an effort to attract buyers away from Apple's iPad, device makers are setting starting prices of Android tablets to undercut iPad's US$499 entry-level price.

  • ViewPad 10 dual Android-Windows tablet

    While tablets such as Apple's iPad and Motorola's Android-based Xoom are continuing to attract popular attention, there are many workplaces that are still based around Microsoft Windows. Unfortunately, Windows 7 isn't really optimized for use in tablets, and it looks like the next version won't be out for another year. So what can people who want to use Windows on a tablet do?

  • Six tablets to watch

    When most people think of a tablet, they think of the pater familias of the current generation, the 9.6-by-7.5-by-0.5-inch Apple iPad. But today, with dimensions ranging from the height and width of a Christmas card to the height and width of a clipboard, tablets are as becoming diverse a product category as we've seen in a long time.

  • Size matters for tablet PCs

    ViewSonic's ViewPad 7, a tablet PC with a 7-inch display, is the latest in a line of machines that bridge the gap between a smartphone and a tablet.

  • ViewSonic Introduces Two Tablets

    ViewSonic is jumping into the tablet game. Although the company is best known for its monitors, a tablet isn't a huge stretch--after all, ViewSonic is used to dealing with <a href="http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/product/430035/review/vpc190.html">displays</a>, and it also puts out netbooks under its brand. The latter is a key reason why the company's dual-operating-system, 10-inch tablet comes as less of a surprise.

  • Buyers considering iPad alternatives

    After facing virtually no competition for months after releasing the iPad, Apple's dominant market share faces a challenge as consumers consider purchasing tablets that could be viable iPad alternatives.
