Is one-hand control better than two? For years that's been the design around smartphones.  And that's the way we've used a variety of smartphones.  However, Apple went its own way and designed a UI that, unless you have some pretty flexible fingers, requires two hands to operate. "Everyone is still trying to make a one-handed product," Rolston... Read more...
Back in February of this year, we took a look at the AMD 690 series chipset and praised it for its affordability, power efficiency, and strong performance relative to its competition.  Since then, the 690 series chipset has gone on to be somewhat of a success for AMD with over 35 different motherboards based on various flavors the chipset...
