Acer Iconia W510 review: more tablet than ultrabook

Acer_Iconia_W510_04-900-75 Don't let the Acer Iconia W510 and its hearty hinge confuse you. It's a tablet, not one of those convertible laptops you've been seeing lately. It may transform into three different modes, but it's a Windows 8 slate with a keyboard dock, pure and simple. Why? Because its 10.2-inch form factor and low-wattage Atom processor make it less than functional for all but the most basic computing tasks. Despite running the full version of Windows 8, it has more in common with the Microsoft ...

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook arrives with a large screen and a small battery

Hewlett-Packard (HP) has just stifled the rumours by releasing the HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook, its first Chrome OS laptop. Is it big news? Yeah well sort of... it could be... it should be... if it were not for a joke of a battery. According to the Google Chrome Blog, the only real change from what is already available in the Samsung, Acer, and Lenovo Chromebooks, is the larger screen, sporting a LED-backlit 14-inch 1366 x 768 panel in what most would ...

Childproof your computer with the Ubuntu based StormFly

StormFly, a 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive with a bootable version of Ubuntu, is a computer "safety" device aimed at the much younger computer savvy generation. While you could snigger a little at the description that it "is basically a PC on your wrist" (well it's not really is it), what it does could just be the stuff of dreams for parents and teachers and IT administrators. One thing that has always been a prevalent fear with letting the young'uns use ...

BlackBerry Z10 hands on review: guess who’s back?

blackberry-z10-2-xl The BB Z10, RIM’s, excuse me, BlackBerry’s new flagship phone, the other being the touch and type Q10, is exactly what BlackBerry needs to pull itself out of the deep, dark hole it’s currently positioned in. Not in sales of course, as BlackBerrys still sell by the millions. But the geek-elite and those “in the know” have all but abandoned this stale and wholly outdated platform. The Z10 is going to change this of course, for better or for worse. ...

Sony will reveal PlayStation 4 20 February

For PlayStation lovers, the latest news from the PlayStation Blog has probably induced some crap-in-the-pants ooh's and aah's. If the YouTube video posted yesterday by Sony is anything to go by, then the new PlayStation 4 will be revealed on 20 February. That's less than 3 weeks away. As usual, Sony does not give much away in the video. It is something we have always seen from Sony, the masters of making you wait and anticipate. According the The Wall ...

Nike FuelBand review: the gamification of sporting tech begins anew

TAB19.Kit_nike.Fuel_band1-900-75 At its heart, the FuelBand is little different to the UP or Fitbit; it's basically an accelerometer you wear on your wrist that tracks how active you are throughout the day, and though its understated styling and system of monitoring and achievements on your iPhone or at is cleverer and richer than with its competitors, the fundamental idea is the same. That's good, because the idea works really well. Even if you make no other conscious changes to your lifestyle, just ...
