Asus, the computer manufacturer best known for its lightweight, inexpensive Eee netbooks, has introduced the Eee Top 1602, a loaded version that features a 15.6-inch touch screen. The model also boasts Windows XP, 1GB of main memory, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and a 160GB hard drive. Techworld (11/4)

Sony has launched a new audio CD format dubbed Blu-spec, which apparently allows users to burn discs with the Blu Laser Diode system without losing compatibility with existing CD drives.
