HP introduced its first multitouch-enabled tablet for business users as well as notebook PCs tailored for both enterprise and small and midsize businesses (SMBs).

The additions to the HP portfolio include:

– HP EliteBook 2740p — an ultra-thin, multitouch-enabled convertible tablet that provides an interactive experience for businesses in health care, education, sales and more;

– HP EliteBook 2540p — the company’s lightest EliteBook notebook PC, starting at only 3.3 pounds, is ideal for global and large corporate enterprises, the public sector and other businesses in need of a rugged, high-performance notebook; and

– HP ProBook standard series (s-series) notebook PCs — four new models of the high-performing series provide a new design and sophisticated colors for everyday use.

The PlayStation Network (PSN) was hot by a Y2K-style bug, which affected the PlayStation 3 users around the world – they cannot sign into the PSN, or play games on the PSN servers, or download any content.

In the official Twitter feed for Sony Playstation, it was stated “We’re aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we’re looking into it. Stay tuned for updates.”

Reports indicated the bug only affects older PlayStation 3 models, with PS3 Slim owners being unaffected.
