HP has left the “beige box” behind, and is doing some very creative and amazing work with hardware and software. Just take a look at their TouchSmart series, or HP 1000 mini netbook. We’ll have full reviews of these HP products and more posted soon.
If you haven’t tried Windows Vista, you really ought to. Service Pack 1 and improved driver support have made this a mature and solid operating system. The Windows Live products are some of the coolest software to ever come from Microsoft. They’re all online applications (perfect for that new netbook), and they’re free!
And now, without further ado – the HP Magic Giveaway contest winner. Comment 671 belonging to Ben:
While the comment was drawn at random, it does seem fitting for the season. As soon as we hear from Ben we’ll publish more information, and we hope he’s able to share his story of sharing magic with us all.
Update: We have received a reply from him, and permission to use his full name. Congratulations Ben Beauvais of Michigan!
