I met Lauren Harich at an HP calculator event, an event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 12c calculator.
While the 12c calculator may not seem HIGH TECH it is the longest selling calculator and rumor has it that the competition coughTexas Instrumentscough even uses it to verify that their calculators are giving the right answer.

Today Toshiba announced an Android powered tablet with a 7” screen available in December. The Thrive 7 will have a similar look and feel as the 10” Thrive, although it will not have a full size USB, HDMI or SD port, only mini for HDMI and USB and micro SD.
We had a chance to play with one earlier today and I must admit, I think it would make a great eBook reader for those of us who are on the NY City subway system often. The NVIDIA Tegra chip makes it great for gaming as well.
Pricing not available yet but it will be sub $400. There will also be an optional dock available. Continue Reading…
As an extreme sports enthusiast, (or so I claim to be ;-)), I’m really excited about the VITAband. The VITAband is essentially a new-age medical ID bracelet. How? Well each bracelet comes with an imprinted personal identification number (VITAnumber). So, should anything happen to you a first-responder can call the VITAband number to access your personal information.
On the VITA website you can set up your profile to include medications, allergies, and emergency contacts. But wait, theres MORE…the VITAband also features Visa payWave (contact-less payment). It’s a prepaid card so you don’t have to worry about someone running off with your fortune.
The VITAband is great for anyone into hiking, cycling, running (marathon training..whoa!) and lastly climbing (or you can wear it because it’s sweet).
Today Michael Reyes and I from HardwareGeeks.com were able to check out the brand new Galaxy Tab 8.9 from Samsung. The device which features a dual core processor, gorilla glass, and 16 or 32 GB of storage is the thinnest tablet on the market.
Check out my unboxing video and check back soon for my full review!
Today at 6 pm Samsung held a press conference introducing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and two players, the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0.
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 is extremely thin – that is the first thing that you notice. It has a nice metallic finish and while I’ve handled many tablets this one fit perfectly in my hands – like absolutely perfect, as if it were made for my hand.
It was funny hearing the product manager speak about it because they said ‘One size does not fit all’ and all I could think was – ‘You’re damn right!’.
The Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 are entertainment focused devices – bringing you everything but a phone call (games, media, and services). Taking a quick glance will make you think it’s an iPod Touch – I’m not going to lie – but its not, and its very nice.
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be available on October 2nd for $469 (16GB) and $568 (32GB).
The Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 will be available on October 16th for $229 and $269 respectively.

Well if you haven’t, I urge you to go check out his website because this is a big deal and if you are the winner of this transformation nation project, you can win a million bucks!!
