Iomega External Hard Drive FireWire 800/FireWire 400/USB (250GB) Review

Iomega's External Hard Drive FireWire 800/FireWire 400/USB impressed us with its large capacity, speedy FireWire 400/800 performance, and nice array of backup software. The unit is great for gigabyte-hungry Mac or PC owners with FireWire, but the drive's sluggish USB 2.0 reading and writing of large files will disappoint many users. The Maxtor OneTouch II offers better USB 2.0 performance. The Iomega HDD (the shortened name is lettered on the drive's front panel) looks like the Darth Vader of hard drives. The drive's dark-charcoal top sets off a raised silver Iomega logo, and its sides and face are shiny black....

Keyboard: Buyer's Guide

There are a variety of keyboard designs and shapes from which to choose. Most computers come with a traditional "straight" keyboard, which is the rectangular design we're all familiar with. Other companies produce a keyboard that splits the letters down the middle, producing two halves, which are then angled outward to better conform to the shape of our body. This design is particularly good for people with broad chests, as their elbows are already pushed slightly outward, naturally angling their wrists toward each other. Conversely, thinner people may find a traditional "straight" keyboard more comfortable. There are also a number...

Mighty mouse - computer mouses - Buyers Guide

WITH TODAY's computers, inputting, accessing, retrieving and printing information are often handled by means of a mouse. Recently, a spate of new technology has spawned hands-free mice, square mice, oval mice, infrared mice and even ring mice you wear on your finger. Some versions hide under your desk and are operated with your feet. Others are cordless, meaning fewer wires and tangles on your desk, and greater freedom to move around your office while still working on your computer. Still others hardly look like mice at all but are simply small, square pads. Most mice now are ergonomically designed, fitting...

3am Labs extended its line of remote management products on Monday, delivering a Web-based help desk platform that allows administrators to gain control of a remote system to resolve problems without having to preinstall any software.

Intel vs. AMD

Are you beginning to see the trend here? The Athlon's bus cannot take advantage of some very important, new technologies and it just makes me wonder how things will change once manufacturers start releasing DDR400, dual-channel chipsets for the Pentium 4. Even today we are seeing Intel's current fastest processor, the Pentium 4 2.4GHz outperform AMD's fastest processor, the AthlonXP 2100+ (1.73GHz) by a significant margin. Going by this fact and the facts stated earlier in the article, it is logical to say that by moving the Pentium 4 to a 533MHz FSB and giving it faster memory, Intel will...

Where to Buy a Replacement Printer Cartridge

Why Buy an HP Printer?

Many office equipment gurus believe that Hewlett Packard is the best name in computer technology. With a longstanding reputation of quality and dependability, HP has become a trademark for technological excellence. In addition, supplies and maintenance are easier to find for this brand than for others that are less well known.
