Amazon’s New Kindle Oasis: Easier on the Eyes, Still a Pain in the Wallet

No one needs a £230 ereader, but the Kindle Oasis is often good enough that you can convince yourself otherwise. Its display and backlight are better than average, and its asymmetrical design is purpose-constructed for the avid reader. Though it’s got its detractors, I’ve always liked it. I read a lot, and I love ereaders. Spending £110 more than I need to for the very best has felt like the kind of luxury I can safely budget for. The third generation of the Kindle Oasis, which isn’t very different from the last generation apart from having a backlight with adjustable warmth. So you might feel you can budget for this one as well. Read More >>

Lenovo’s Dual-Screen Yoga Book Is Painfully Close to a Breakthrough

Laptops haven’t changed much since 2012. Sure, they’re a bit sleeker, more powerful, and have slightly better battery lives. But after Microsoft conjured up the original Surface with its kickstand and detachable keyboard in 2012, it’s largely been five plus years of iterative improvements. That doesn’t mean companies aren’t trying though, because if you’ve been paying to systems like Apple’s MacBook Pro with Touch Bar or Asus’ ZenBook Pro 15 with Screenpad, all these companies are working towards the same thing: a dual-screen laptop. But even when considering Apple and Asus’ efforts, the company that’s currently the closest to achieving this is Lenovo, and with the new Yoga Book C930, it feels like Lenovo is so close to a breakthrough.

The Kindle Turns 5 Today, and It’s Come a Ridiculously Long Way

Today the Kindle turns five and it's come a long, long way in that past half-decade. In case you don't remember, in 2007 the first generation Kindle had a 800 x 600 screen, 250 MB internal memory, and was the only model to ever have a microSD slot. And it launched for the low, low price of $400. Despite the pricetag, the device was wildly popular, selling out in the first few hours, and remaining out of stock until April 2008. Read More >>
