After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Welcome to Computex

    Welcome to Computex 2004, the show this year is larger than ever with over 1,300 exhibitors running over 2,800 booths. Due to the size a 4th hall was added to hold all of the exhibits. I don't believe the numbers include the companies that have displays in the Grand Hyatt and Trade Center Club but I have noticed a fair amount of overlap.
    The displays this year do not seem as lavish as before with many booths only have 2 or three items on display and very few working demos. Despite this there is still a few things to see that include this dancing MSI robot, a similar product was announced at E3 earlier this year, and booth babes a plenty.
    The AMD girls here are helping to promote DFI and their LanParty series motherboards. They asked the onlookers questions gave away prizes for correct answers.
    I found the last photo to be quite interesting. I have actually never heard of the company but their logo is in the same font that I use for the X of awards. I wonder if I should complain. tongue smile
