In case you haven’t heard, this week has been National Cyber Security Awareness Week, and while we haven’t spent as much time informing you of the various tips as we normally do, it’s the last day of the week, and we feel the need to point out one of the best reasons to stay aware.
Even though we don’t report on it all the time, like many big companies have, there’s a constant battle for the best in computer processors, and much of it is centred on Intel competing against AMD. While we don’t often see the latter in many computers, that could change shortly with a new chip on the way from the company.
There are those of you out there who just love laptops that act as desktop replacement. We won’t name names, but some of you prefer a big laptop that works as well as a big desktop. Years ago, HP tried something like this, and while the 20 inch Dragon wasn’t a huge success, it’s hoping the Rove will be.
Are phones too small for you? Well hold onto those jacket pockets, because here’s one that will be lucky to fit: a seven inch tablet that also works as a phone.
Puzzle game Tetris might be nearly 30 years old, but we’re still playing it, and now Electronic Arts has come up with a way to make us even more addicted, with a new version of the beloved game that comes with a catch that could seriously catch you out.
If there’s one thing we can say about Apple, it’s that devices in its iOS ecosystem sure get a lot of attention, and this week the company is celebrating with the 50,000,000,000th download made.
Tablets don’t usually feature resistance to the elements, but if Sony’s next Xperia tablet is anything like its smartphone sibling, we’ll be expecting good things.
Using the working slogan “leading innovation,” Toshiba has this week shown Australians its new Kirabook concept, a product that brings the highest definition screen ever seen on a Windows PC, yet without the bulk that would normally weight it down. And if that doesn’t interest you, there are a bunch of other announcements, including a gaming PC that has more power than most desktops.
Apple practically reinvented the world of touchscreen computing when the iPad first came out, and now Dell wants to give it a proper punch, with a 10 inch tablet that offers up Intel’s Atom processor, Windows 8, and a battery you can take out.
The next generation of computers could last all day and yet provide even more performance if Intel has anything to say, with the company showing off some new chips heading to computers and tablets in the near future.
