Hewlett-Packard is looking to drum up tablet sales with the rollout of four new devices, which went on sale Monday.
The new lineup includes the HP Slate7 Plus, the HP Slate7 Extreme, the HP Slate8 Pro, and the HP Slate10 HD. Equipped with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the tablets are all listed as available with the exception of the Slate7 Extreme, which currently is out of stock.
You've seen the picture a thousand times. John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie, sit in the back of the limousine. It's the final moments of JFK's life, as seconds later, the president would be gunned down. But you've never seen it like this before -- made entirely out of Legos.
That scene, and others from the assassination attempts on the lives of 12 American presidents, are featured in "Assassination!" in which Brendan Powell Smith tells the stories of every significant attack on a US president, including the killings of Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln, … Read more
Congrats to Adriana D. of Miami, Fla., for winning a Panasonic Link2Cell home handset in last week's giveaway. Want to speed up your computer's hard drive? Read on.

The SanDisk Extreme II is 2.5mm thinner than the previous SanDisk Extreme, but it has a lot more than that going for it, according to CNET reviewer Dong Ngo. … Read more
Camera Zoom Extreme would be just another fairly redundant camera app if not for a couple of very useful features included by the developers. Even with those features, it doesn't do a lot to make it more useful than the standard app that comes with every iPhone; but it is free -- and for those that need those added features, it works quite well.
When you open the app, you'll be given a very short overview of how it works. The app is free and there is an upgrade to include a 30x digital zoom, but you'll … Read more

What's your router situation like? Need something newer, faster, better than your pokey old 802.11g model?
For a limited time, and while supplies last, DealFisher has the refurbished Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station router for $74.99 shipped. (This is the older, fifth-gen version, not the updated 2013 version for $199.) That's $25 less than Apple charges for a refurb and nearly $100 less than you'd pay for a new one.
Though designed by Apple, the AirPort works with any home network for any connected devices. It supports 802.11 a/b/g/n and features … Read more
These days it's hard for a 7-inch tablet to stand out, but that's not stopping the HP Slate 7 Extreme from making a valiant effort. The device is geared toward multimedia experiences and features a few unique qualities that may catch the wandering eye of anyone looking for a Google Nexus 7 alternative.
The Slate 7 Extreme bears some resemblance to the Nexus 7 tablet, but the HP's front-facing speakers and stylus give it enough of a difference for its design to differentiate it from the Google tablet. The 7-inch device houses a stylus on its bottom-right … Read more
Tablets have come a long way, baby, and the flood of portable devices isn't slowing down anytime soon. With new, speedy processors, razor-sharp HD screens, and ample apps for working or playing hard, tablets are the gadgets PDAs always wished they were.
Competition in the tablet market is becoming fiercely saturated, however; the available devices run the gamut from big-league sluggers to bush-league slackers. The good news is that, along with the greater, varied selection of tablets, prices are becoming more competitive. Buying a tablet has never been more on the consumer's side.
Initial product announcements sometimes lack … Read more
Fun Face Changer Extreme Free allows the user to place virtual stickers over a photograph to decorate or alter it. The application does not allow the user to bend, melt, or warp images like most other face-changing applications do. Once the image has been altered to the desired finished product, the user can then save the photo or share it on social media sites such as Facebook. While this app can be fun to play with, it is plagued with problems. Incessant advertising, difficult controls, and stability issues are all common during the use of this application.
While the installation … Read more
