A Geek Easy Computers 2012 Technology Review

This past year has been an exciting one in many respects.  It has definitely been a roller coaster of a ride.  The ups and downs of the economy, the re-election of the first African-American president, the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.  So many newsworthy events took place it’s nearly impossible to comment on them all.

Another one bites the dust… HP?

Another of the mighty have fallen.  Hewlett-Packard (HP – the worlds largest personal computer maker), coinciding with their Touch Pad disaster, is selling off their PC division after decades of making computers for the consumer and business markets.

“Hewlett-Packard… on Thursday confirmed that it is considering selling its personal computer business, along with announcements of an end to its tablet computer and smartphone products.” – English.news.cn

So what does this mean to you as a consumer and user of HP PC products.  It may mean nothing, depending on what happens to the PC division.  It could mean a nightmare for trying to get tech support, repair, or parts from HP as they transition through this process.  One thing is for sure, HP as we know it and have loved it for years will cease to exist in its current state.  As history has shown us, these major changes with companies like Hewlett-Packard rarely translate to “good times” for consumers.

Regardless of the path HPs future takes, we at Geek Easy want you to know we will continue to support HP PCs with tech service and repair.  Until the changeover process is completed, we recommend holding off on any purchases or service requests from HP as your transaction could be held up in the mire of red tape that typically accompanies this type of move.

Geek Easy will always be your point of reliable support.  You can always source us for any of your PC or Mac needs!

Tablets… the new PC?

Unless you’ve literally been under a rock these last couple years, you know that the iPad is the hottest selling computing device on the market.  Ultra portable touch screen thats super easy to use, crazy long battery life, and tons of cool and useful apps in the App Store.  Its easy to see how the iPad has created the frenzy it has.  It is also easy to predict the next phase… competition.

Apple has a well established reputation for creating products that inspire fierce loyalty from its users.  The iPad is near perfect, and the iPad 2 is even closer.  It’s going to be hard for any manufacturer to top that act.  Here’s a few of the better attempts:

  • Asus Eee Pad Transformer – Android 3.0, Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core CPU, 10.1-inch capacitive display at 1280×800, full-size keyboard dock, card reader, HDMI-out, rear-facing camera, front-facing camera.  Asus has been making good netbooks for awhile now and this tablet dosent lower their grade.  One of the best Android tablets available.
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 – Android 3.0, 1GHz dual core CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, 10.1-inch capacitive screen at 1280×800 (WXGA), 3MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 3G.  This is the one to watch!  Arguably the best Android tablet currently.
  • Motorola X00m – Android 3.0, Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM, 32GB Flash storage, 10.1-inch capacitive LCD at 1280×800, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, barometer, gyroscope, 5MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 3G, 730g.  A second generation Android tablet that looks very exciting!
  • Blackberry Playbook – BlackBerry Tablet OS (QNX), 1GHz Cortex A9 dual core CPU, 1GB RAM, 7-inch capacitive LCD at 1024×600, 3MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear-facing camera, 400g.  The only non-Android tablet in the “one to watch” category, the Playbook promises a lot of future potential.

As you can see, the iPad cant be content to rest on its laurels.  It may hold the crown for right now, but the contenders are hot on its tail and ready to snatch the lead!  Definitely a race we are going to watch closely!
