The Razer Blade Stealth Has Finally Moved Away From Its Mac Inspiration 

The Razer Blade Stealth has always been a pretty damn nice 13-inch laptop. Not the best laptop, and not the worst. A good alternative for people who want slick Mac-like design in a Windows computer. With its latest refresh of the Stealth, Razer is wisely moving away from its Apple influences and has started borrowing more from its friends in Windows-land. The result is one sharp looking laptop.

Tumblr’s Porn Ban Is Off to a Predictably Stupid Start

Yesterday Tumblr committed to making its social network, which is full of boobs, dongs, and teens openly fantasising about the two, a more child-friendly place. The announcement, shared via the Staff account promised a “better, more positive Tumblr” free of things like sexual acts, genitalia, and “female-presenting nipples.” Read More >>

I Wanted to Stream Buffy, Angel, and Firefly for Free, But Not Like This

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and the good looking criminals of Firefly are finally going to be available for free online for anyone to revisit or watch for the first time. This should be a cause for celebration. But they’re coming back courtesy of Facebook Watch, and as much as I’d love for friends to finally see Buffy — no, not like this. Read More >>

Here Are a Bunch of Fun Microsoft Surface Rumours

The year is winding down, and it’s very unlikely Microsoft will announce another major product, so naturally, we need to look forward to 2019 and beyond. Brad Sams of Thurrot has plenty of delectable rumours in his new book Beneath a Surface. Some of his claims about Microsoft’s product roadmap reinforce things we’ve heard before, while other bits are entirely new. Read More >>

The Google Pixel Slate Is a Brilliant Chrome OS Response to the iPad

Chromebooks aren’t supposed to cost a lot of money. That’s a big reason we like them! They’re always good enough, and they’re always cheap – think under £500. But the Pixel Slate, which carries the newest build of Chrome OS, has made a near perfect case for a pricier chromebook. This tablet, which turns into a laptop with the addition of a £190 accessory, starts at £550 and often works so well as either laptop or tablet that it feels like its almost always worth the price.

Using USB-C on the iPad (So Far…)

The USB-C port on the new iPad Pro is a big deal. Besides charging the device and showing off Apple’s decision to take baby steps away from Lightning, it also allows the iPad to use the wide variety of USB-C dongles and doodads available. Read More >>

The New iPad Pro Is the Last Great Tablet

The standalone tablet is all but dead. It’s been supplanted by 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro, which promises the excellent content consumption powers of a tablet, crossed with the actual productivity of a real laptop. Still, Apple has defiantly continued to make a tablet – both the budget iPad that was refreshed in March, and the more productivity-friendly iPad Pro that was just released. The budget iPad is nice, but thanks to a few tricks, like Apple Pencil support, USB-C, and a great-looking display that can chew through any content thrown at it, the iPad Pro is better. This is the last great tablet. Read More >>

Oh Come On, Apple Could Have Made the ‘New’ MacBook Air Years Ago

There’s this weird sort of fervour that surrounds the MacBook Air that I’ve never fully understood. Sure, when Steve Jobs pulled the first one out of a manilla envelope in 2008, it was cool as hell. But in the 10 years since then, Apple’s once industry-leading laptop was neglected and abandoned to the point that it became a running joke. Read More >>

The iPad Pro Is Finally Making a Case for Itself

The iPad looks like it’s finally poised to stop being a movie watching machine and actually fulfil the promise Apple has repeatedly proselytised: that the iPad is a productivity machine. A new processor, better application support, and a few tweaks to the design have further brought the iPad Pro into a space where it could—conceivably be a competitor to actual 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro or even the Pixel Slate.

What Will Become of Linux Giant Red Hat Now That It Sold Out to IBM?

As the New York Times reported on Sunday, IBM is in the process of purchasing Red Hat, one of the largest corporate contributors to the Linux kernel. The news is great if you’ve got stock in either company or a passion to see a cloud computing services challenge Amazon (and Microsoft). But if you’re a fan of open source software, IBM’s move might be a little worrisome. Read More >>
