Windows 8 Update (8.1) – Features More Metro, Less Desktop

Microsoft wants to steer us away from the familiar Windows 7-style Desktop interface with the Windows 8 update, called Windows 8.1. Details from a leaked video preview, found a couple weeks ago by The Verge, suggest Microsoft plans to do so by improving the Metro interface.* Die-hard Desktop fans, lay down your pitchforks and extinguish




Six Strikes for Illegal Downloading – Not Actually That Bad

Last week, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, Cablevision and AT&T began the implementation of a “six strike system” to counter the illegal downloading/uploading (D/U) of copyrighted materials; namely movies and music. This sounds like a “six strikes and you’re out” kind of deal, but it’s not as dire as that. This




Your Windows PC Is A Compulsive Hoarder – 2 Super Quick Tips To Cure It

Your computer is a compulsive hoarder and its house looks like this: All those boxes in the picture represent a bunch of files and folders (which we’ll call “crap” from now on) that you never see or use and that your computer never uses either. But for one demented reason or the other, your computer




More iOS 7 Leaks and Rumors Wanted!

Leap Motion Controller – Designed for Windows 8 Without Even Knowing It

Cheaper iPhone? Why?

Cheaper iPhone?…Isn’t that what an iPhone 4 is? It’s for the “low end market” you say? $0 for a 4 and $99 for a 4S. Some reports I’ve seen claim it will be built from cheaper materials, such as polycarbonate plastic. Many also believe that it will use leftover components from previous iPhones in a




iPad Mini And Other Stories

Aaaand I’m back to Apple products after a couple months of self-convincing that anything else, namely the Surface RT, could compete. I made the EXACT same mistake a couple years ago when I decided to put my iPhone 3G down to pick up the HTC Thunderbolt. I wanted to see what else was out there




The Tabtop Revolution

I am really liking these hybrid tabtops/laplets that are emerging. Namely those that have keyboard covers/docks like the HP TouchPad 2, Lenovo ThinkPad 2. I really wouldn’t be surprised if these hybrids become a new norm to replace the traditional laptops, at least for Windows hardware. The only thing that is limiting the growth of these hybrids is getting
