HP will keep making personal computers for now

Breaking news today folks – HP just announced that they won’t spin off the PC unit after all, reversing the last CEO Leo Apotheker decision. Hewlett-Packard’s current CEO Meg Whitman said that “keeping the unit within the company is right for the company, its customers, shareholders and business partners”. Another reason can be that Leo’s decision to sell it instantly devaluated it and HP just couldn’t find the right buyer.

To be honest, we were a bit sad to see an entire successful division go so keeping it is a bit of good news. Now, if only HP does some magic and ports Windows 8 onto their cheap (and recently discontinued) HP TouchPad line, we could really say that we are completely satisfied, and that wouldn’t be a small feat.

Deal of the Day – Cheapest Surveillance DVR I have ever seen Night Owl NONB-4DVR for $69 shipped

If you are interested in a dirt cheap Surveillance DVR (Digital Video Recorder), the lowest price I have ever seen is this Night Owl NONB-4DVR 4 x BNC Compact H.264 Digital Video Recorder with Smart Phone Access at Newegg. They have it right now for only $69 but it doesn’t include the hard drive. In my opinion this is actually a good thing since you can get a SATA drive for really cheap nowadays.

Obviously, at this price you can’t expect HD quality, but for $69 you can’t really go too wrong. Just remember! It doesn’t come with a hard-drive so you’ll have to get a SATA one separately. Has a mouse, remote control and you can connect it to your TV for instant 4 in 1 camera viewing. I got one myself so expect a review quite soon. there is tax in California, of course so expect it for $75.06 shipped.
