The way we use our computers is changing. More people now use smartphones and tablets to get things done. That does not mean they have given up on desktop computers and laptops altogether. Slate happens to be a desk for laptop and tablet users. It is elegant and convenient to use. It keeps you and your laptop cool and promotes healthy posture. What I like about it is the fact that it is phone and tablet ready. You can support this project on Kickstarter.
You don’t need an Xbox or PS4 to play games. PC gaming can be lots of fun, especially when you have one of these Piixl Jetpacks. This is a SteamOS gaming box that latches onto the back of your TV and stays out of your way. It feels invisible but you will be able to run games on its SteamOS (Linux-based). Sounds promising, doesn’t it?
Meet the Sony VAIO SVT21217CXB Desktop: a 21.5 inch all-in-one desktop with a touchscreen display. Those of you who have tried the Tap 20 device should know what to expect here. The Sony VAIO SVT21217CXB Desktop has:
This particular configuration is available for $1299 on Amazon.com.
Google Glass may look ugly now but don’t count on it staying that way for too long. Pictures of Prescription Google Glass have already hit the Internet. Google’s very own Brian Matiash has given us a look at what Google Glass is going to look like in the future. It is still a work in progress but Google will be able to reach more people with Prescription Google Glasses.
Windows 8.1 may be here but Windows 7 still remains a very popular operating system. At least that is the case on Steam, which happens to be a platform for gamers. Window 7 still has 51.76% share among all operating systems on Steam. Windows 8.1 accounts for 6.34% of all Steam users. Can Windows 8.1 close the gap quickly? That remains to be seen.
I bet your computer can’t do what the If Computer can. This is a hybrid laptop with a thin design and 2 7″ HD displays. The device comes with a folding keyboard, dual batteries, dual LTE antennas, dual operating systems, and the Slingshot, which is a handheld device. That’s right, this system has a detachable handheld device you can use as a smartphone.
The device is available on Indiegogo right now. It looks interesting but we are not sure how practical this is.
It seems iOS users are not the only ones getting Mega storage. Windows Phone 8 users will also be getting it. For those of you not familiar, MEGA is Kid Dotcom’s fully encrypted cloud service. The desktop sync version is expected to be available later this month. Not sure this changes a whole lot as far as Windows Phone 8 and its popularity is concerned.
Fujitsu has a new laptop for business professionals. The CELSIUS H730 Enterprise Laptop PC Workstation has an Intel Core i7-4900MQ vPro Processor and Nvidia Kepler generation Quadro graphics. It also uses hybrid HDD to provide you with a faster performance. The device runs Windows 8.1 OS. Since this is for business professionals, the addition of Fujitsu’s authentication features is not a surprise.

It has customizable parameters and offers multi-monitor support. You can download it here.
Windows 8.1 has been here for quite some time now. Is it encouraging people to get more tablets, laptops, and computers? That’s not clear. HP is hoping convertible tablets will be a hit with consumers this year.
We’ve got a lot of convertibles in the market, so do our competitors, and we’re advertising behind those because we think that’s a really innovative form factor that’s the best of the tablet and the best of the PC
