Announcing a new role, new partnerships, new projects.

Posted on 28 September 2015

What, you may ask, is Chippy doing with an iPad Mini 4? It’s been years since my hands featured on an Apple product and I’m not a huge fan of the ecosystem but there’s a good reason why that changes now. I’m very happy to announce that I have a new role within Notebookcheck as Head of Video. I’ve been given the keys to the YouTube channel and my studio is now a ‘via’ […]

Videos: Three-Way Touch Ultrabook Session.

Posted on 08 February 2013

Update: Session finished. The overview videos are available as a continuous playlist below. A little bit of gaming, a comparison of Ultrabook size and form-factor, touch and non-touch discussion and a lot of live chat.

I’ll be here from 2000hrs Berlin time tomorrow (Sat) […]

Ultrabook and Touch Hangout Video

Posted on 14 December 2012

  The Live video is over but it’s embedded below. I must say that the session didn’t go as planned. At some point the URL got changed and people couldn’t get into the Hangout. Maybe we’ll try again soon but it was certainly not as good as the Ustream sessions we’ve run where people like to chat and don’t need to put their face up on video. I’ll look into […]

Ultrabook Comparison Tool Now Active. Find *Your* Ultrabook

Today I’ve added the comparison feature. Not only does the comparison page allow you to view much more information in-line, it allows you to sort more fields than in the normal database overview. In addition, it […]

I’m sure many of you have been in and looked around the product database.
