It’s been two-years since Windows Phone has been on the scene and if there is one app we’re really yearning for (not looking at you, Instagram), it’s Hulu. The app has been available on Xbox 360 for sometime and we use it daily, so it’s with great joy we see it’s now available for Windows 8.
The RT app will run on Surface tablets and of course Pro devices. It’s very metro influenced and the Hulu team even tossed together a demo video of the service (it’s still not available yet in our Windows 8 Store). The app will come pre-loaded on Acer and Sony Windows 8 devices although anyone with Win 8 can just go and downloaded it to the store. Combined with the recently released Netflix app (also gorgeous) and Windows 8 will have some great media services out the gate.
But what we’re really wondering is of course when will the Windows Phone 8 app land? Hulu now has two of the three systems in place, so is it too much to expect them to release a phone version on October 29th? We sure hope not because boy will that be an odd omission. [Note: Embedded video is on Hulu, so you probably can't view it mobile]

There are laptops, and then there are workstations. The HP ZBook Studio G8 is the latter and quite possibly the most powerful 15.6-inch laptop "of its size." Packing a new 11th Gen H-series processor, RTX 3080 GPU, 4K OLED with touch, and an RGB keyboard ... this may be the laptop of the year. Here's what you need to know about it.
Intel has announced its 11th Gen H-series of processors aimed at high-end gaming rigs and portable workstations. Based on Willow Cove core microarchitecture on 10nm SuperFin the new chips feature Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6E, more PCIe lanes, and PCIe 4.0 on top of the "world's fastest" single thread performance. Over one million of the chips have already shipped and are available in the...
Intel H570 motherboards aren't quite as popular as the more expensive Z590 sibling, but that's for good reason. This slightly less capable chipset is tailored to those who have less budget to spare on a motherboard, but it has more than enough in terms of technology to handle 10th and 11th Gen processors.
