The back of the tablet is a textured, rubberized plastic that’s nice and grippy. It feels good to hold, and there’s no danger of the tablet slipping from your fingers. The tablet is larger and heavier than either the 2013 Nexus 7 or the Retina iPad mini (0.87 pounds, compared to 0.73 for the Retina iPad mini or 0.64 for the Nexus 7), but it’s still comfortable enough to use one-handed in portrait mode. For more active usage like Internet browsing or typing out e-mails, I more often found myself holding the tablet in landscape mode with both hands and typing with Windows 8’s thumb keyboard. … [Read more...] about Review: Dell’s Venue 8 Pro is a Windows tablet you might actually want to buy

Yesterday, the company announced it is ending support in May 2020 for a whole raft of speakers, putting them on the path to obsolescence. … [Read more...] about Why is Sonos dropping support for older speakers, and does the reason hold up?
Webcam technology has been stagnant for many, many years. A few integrated cameras have offered high resolution stills, especially those in tablets. But for the most part, they've been stuck at 1920×1080—at a measly 30 frames a second—with even five-year-old cameras being "state of the art."
