CeBIT 2010 took off yesterday in Hannover and OC3D has been there right from the start. And not surprisingly, we found that “touch” is everywhere. While we hate to admit it, so far OC3D Labs have not managed to find a way to overclock “touch”.

Of course, we are in no mood to give up trying so easily, and we definitely welcome any bright ideas that you guys can come up with to help us out. So coming back to CeBIT 2010, we found touch in every nook and cranny. Touch screens are showing up on everything, full screen systems, mid-range PCs, and the lot. MSI has even added it to their lower priced home systems.

Not sure how they plan on handling the finger prints on glass issues though. On a more personal note, most of us at OC3D are not entirely impressed with the interface; imagine sitting with your hands out in front of you touching the screen for hours on end. It would be really tiring… phew!

We sincerely hope you do not misread our statements as a dislike for touch screens. Far from it, we strongly believe that a large part of our audience will soon be using touch screens in their homes. Our only advice… just keep them away from your super overclocked systems.

Hi guys ive currently got hold of a bt homehub that im wanting to use for my home network and im planning on using it for file sharing only between my laptop and pc. Im running xp64 sp1 on the pc and windows 7 premium 64 on the laptop and was wondering how i would set them up for file sharing so that i can access my files from my laptop on my pc and vice versa??

I have the homehub connected to the pc via a athernet cable as i havent got a wireless card and the laptop is connected to the homehub wirelessly. Is this possible to do with the current setup?????

The xp64 setup wizard asked me to inssert my xp64 disc into any pc i wanted to connect to which i did on my laptop, it then showed a password on the laptop which i had to insert into the computer and it then transferred the settings accross. Since then i wanted to send some files accross to the PC from my laptop but dont know how to..

Please help this is my first time ever setting up a lan so all information will be VERY useful....

Cheers in advance guys

Thanks for the video link it was helpful but not what im after. The problem is im running win7 premium on my laptop and xp 64 on the desktop and thats where the problem is. The two are connected to the homehub as the laptop says limited connectivity to bt-homehub and the pc says local area connection connected. Im looking to use my pc as a file server which stores all data i.e. films, music etc to be streamed wirelesly to my laptop and xbox from my main pc.

I am now looking to find my laptop on my pc so that i can set up a file sharing folder or network drive that can be accessed on both laptop and pc.

Can it be done with these two OS's or will i have to upgrade xp 64 to vista or win7??

Cheers in advance

Nothing wrong with the OS's

limited connectivity to bt-homehub - usually means its unable to get an IP address. Make sure that both computers are set for DHCP and that the homehub is attached by Cat5 patch cables to both computers.
