OK, so I’m still playing Hold Em on Vista….while I’m waiting for the River card, go hit up the Giveaway of the Day site we mentioned a few short weeks back because….. No, not an Ace of Spades, I need the Ace of Clubs! Crap…..there’s always […] Read more »

I didn’t see much on the mobile front, but there were a few Ultimate Extras available today; very appropriate since it’s Vista launch day. Aside from several standard updates in Windows Update, I also pulled down two "Extras": BitLocker and EFS enhancements Hold Em Poker Game […] Read more »

Gotta Be Mobile caught the review over at CNET, which pegs the hp tc4400 at an average 6.6 out of 10. On the bad side, CNET cited the lack of a built-in optical drive; something I personally would rather not see in a Tablet PC. My […] Read more »
