Keyboards and Mice? Who needs them?

We've taken a deep interest into 'Ubiquitous Computing' lately. For those not familiar with the term, ubiquitous computing is a form of pervasive and integrated information systems, where the traditional interface between a user and their PC is radically different.

The idea behind it is to create an information aware environment, without having to sit at a computer terminal. Imagine standing at a bus stop, and accessing a timetable which is displayed on the lens of your glasses. We feel we are slowly getting closer to this form of computing. Geeks and gadgets seem to be riding this wave, employing technology such as RFID and 802.11G gizmos, but hopefully the idea will become more refined with time. Think of the Oakley Thump, but on steroids, with voice activation and other goodies. The possibilities are huge.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
