Now that GadgetMatch has confirmed its full participation at Computex 2017, we’re rounding up the biggest announcements we’re expecting at the multi-day tech convention in Taipei, Taiwan.
When people talk about the future of technology, a lot of things come to mind. It might be flying cars, hover boards, hologram computers, or even life-like robots. And while these ideas seem to be getting closer to reality, we’ve still got a long way to go to get there.
Microsoft today unveiled its first all-in-one desktop PC, the Surface Studio — and it’s absolutely brilliant.
In a study conducted by Kaspersky, the security network unearthed some disturbing statistics: out of nine Asia-Pacific (APAC) countries, Vietnam, the Philippines, and India have the highest number of computer users who experienced local threat incidents.
HP has just unveiled its Pavilion Wave and Elite Slice PCs, proving that there’s still a lot of potential for progress in the desktop computer market. The two products aren’t going to shock you with incredible specs or brand new technologies, though; what makes them special is in the way they fit around your work space.
Every year around September, Intel releases a new set of processors that are significantly improved over the previous generation. This year’s Kaby Lake marks the seventh generation since Intel began the Core series of CPUs, and it’s going to make your next computer a lot faster.
I think you’ll agree with me when I say the tech in our devices today is off-the-charts good, though battery life continues to be a pain point for most consumers. There are ways to get more out of your gear, of course, and Microsoft reckons you can increase your computer’s or tablet’s usage time by up to 70 percent using its default web browser for Windows 10. (To be clear, we’re referring to Microsoft Edge, not Internet Explorer.)
Just as you thought water-cooling in a gaming notebook was overkill with last year’s ROG GX700, ASUS has upped the ante once again with its successor, the ROG GX800. Built with the same monstrous cooling system, the latest gaming laptop is now equipped with Intel’s most powerful Core i7 mobile processor and a pair of graphics cards that work together.
If you’re still running Windows 7 or 8 on any of your computers, now is a good time to take Microsoft up on its temporary upgrade offer. You know, before it expires.
Microsoft is expected to talk about Windows, Hololens, Skype, Azure, Data and Developer Tools at the Build 2016 developer conference in San Francisco. CEO Satya Nadella and Windows and Devices executive vice president Terry Myerson, among others, will each give keynote addresses at the Moscone Center.
This year’s arrival of Windows 10 brings with it a great promise, a universal operating system that will run across all devices in the Windows ecosystem, plus every other device that Microsoft builds.
Theoretically one operating system means a seamless computing experience across devices, and one shared app store.
When you see or hear the word Google, hardware isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But they do release devices. While their Nexus launch event, held last week in San Francisco, was a snoozefest, there is plenty to be excited about.
