Yes, that's right folks: an official teaser website from Toshiba themselves shows (mostly already known) specs and pictures of their long-awaited device. The website's URL? Why, it's thetoshibatablet.com ....thus indicating that the name of their tablet (unless otherwise changed in the future) is... the Toshiba Tablet. Wow.
In more exciting news, the specs on the website show that the battery of this particular tablet will be replaceable, but only for the "screwdriver-savvy people".
Keep an eye out for Toshiba's latest products, including their aptly-named laptop (the Toshiba Laptop) and television (the Toshiba TV). You know we love you Toshiba. :)
Oh, and best of all? It seems we're not the only ones with a sense of humor. Try going to the website on an iPhone and see what happens.
Well played, Toshiba. I applaud you for that one.

...okay, so it's not quite as catchy as "Lions! And tigers! And bears!" but we'll likely have the same, "Oh my!" reaction during early February, when a string of companies will be holding their individual press events.
Starting with Sprint on February 7th, we're promised "yet another industry first"...along with David Blaine. I'm not sure how those two correlate at all, but I'll trust that Sprint is cooking up something fun for us. At the very least, you know they're cooking something good, as the bottom of their invitation implies.
Meanwhile, Dell's event will be held on the following day, February 8th, but slightly earlier in the morning. For those who are fond of sleeping in, keep in mind: breakfast is included.
Last-but-not-least, we have HP showcasing their stuff on February 9th. Their invitation seems to have changed slightly in the past few weeks though. Originally their slogan for the event was "Think big. Think small. Think beyond." Now, we see the same invitation, but prodding the folks over at engadget (such good sports, they are). It's all in good fun, of course, and HP's Marketing Technique here will surely draw attention to what's-to-come.
Now we get to wait for these events like children on Christmas morning. Oh, the torture.

Netbooks have had a harder time in the market recently, thanks to the ever-so-popular Tablet. But with Razer creating the "Switchblade", we may see a jump in netbook popularity once again.
The idea behind the netbook was mobility: a tiny design that's compact, lightweight, and easy to use. Also, they were great to use as media-devices.
In the Switchblade, however, we see the netbook being used in a slightly different manner than most people would use them for: gaming. Particularly interesting is the keyboard layout: there's just enough keys to get the necessary things in, like letters on your keyboard, but when you start to play a videogame, the peripherals on the keys actually change to match those of the game.
Razer wouldn't announce a release date, saying that the Switchblade was simply a concept idea still. But would they place this much money into something that's simply a design? ...Personally, I hope not.
