How would you change Motorola’s Xoom 2?

Image
Motorola's Xoom 2 is, undeniably a strong tablet. It was able to beat a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a Transformer Prime in some of our performance tests, battery life is around nine hours and it's nearly running a pure version of Honeycomb. We're a big fan of that display, but less so its unnatural attraction to fingerprints. As we sit anxiously waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich to make its belated way onto the slate, we want to know: what do you think works, what did Motorola scrimp on and what would you change to make it a better device?

ASUS to unveil new K and N series notebooks at Milano Design Week

Asus to unveil new K and N series notebooks at Milano Design Week
ASUS still hasn't clued us in how it'll have us experiencing "infinity," but it is letting some of its other plans for Milano Design Week slip -- namely its N56, N76, N46 and K55 notebooks. Notebook Italia gave the rigs a quick pre-show rundown. The new machines in the N-series lineup are reported to ship with 8GB of DDR3 1333 MHz RAM, up to 1TB HDD space, a Blu-ray or DVD combo drive and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 635m GPU, all driven by various Sandy Bridge CPUs, depending on the model. The K55 mirrors this almost exactly, save for the substitution of a GeForce GT 630m. Notebook Italia says that while these machines are currently slated to launch with Intel's current architecture, Ivy Bridge variants should crop up soon after the CPU hits the market. Curiosity piqued? Check out the source links below for more details, or just stick around -- Design Week is only a couple of days away.

[Thanks, Marco]

Stiq Figures, April 2 – 8: Need for Cinema edition

Image
Welcome to the inaugural installment of Stiq Figures, where the posts don't matter and the Japanese sales data is found after the break. As you'll recall, Stiq Figures is identical to the Japanese hardware sales report in every single way, save for its name. Even the time-honored tradition of making fun of Hollywood's terrible ideas has made the transition from old to new.

We know that EA is shopping around the Need for Speed movie to various studios around Tinseltown - what we don't know is how cognizant it is of the fact that this movie has already been made five times. Then again, Hollywood doesn't seem to have a huge problem with making the same movie over and over again.
