Google’s Project Zero targets OS X with three new exploits

Google’s Project Zero has released more 0day vulnerabilities, and is this time aiming for Apple. Over the past few days, Project Zero has slowly released some exploits found in OS X Yosemite. The vulnerability exposure team at Google first provides their findings to the company in charge of the software. After that time, they’ve got 90 days to fix it before Google’s Project Zero team publishes it to the world. While Microsoft was responsive to Google’s release, Apple is much more tight-lipped.

Onda V919: an iPad Air clone that runs Windows, Android

Onda V919: an iPad Air clone that runs Windows, Android

iPad and iPhone clones aren't news, but once in a while you do come face to face with one that looks like a cheap knockoff on the outside but actually offers something unique and almost tempting when you take a closer look. Take for example this Chinese-made Onda V919 3G Air which is, without a sliver of doubt, meant to copy the design of the iPad Air 2. But inside, you are met with both Windows and Android, running on specs that are almost decent and a price tag that is definitely more than decent.

GULEEK i8 Windows 8.1 box comes with its own battery

GULEEK i8 Windows 8.1 box comes with its own battery

Pico PC's like Zotac's ZBOX lines may be exactly that, tiny, but they aren't completely portable despite their portable size. They are, at the very least, tethered to a power supply to be even useful. One rather intriguing new product, however, tries to address that limitation. This odd GULEEK i8 "Windows 8.1 Smart Google TV Player" indeed comes with almost everything other pico computers have to offer with just a single but very important difference. It has its own 3,000 mAh battery inside.

Fujitsu Stylistic Q335 is an 8-inch Windows tablet for the enterprise

Ever since Microsoft opened the licensing doors, Windows 8 tablets have started coming in all shapes, sizes, and prices. Even major OEMs are scrambling to fill their low end portfolio with budget Windows tablets. But just because they're low key doesn't mean they can't be used for more serious cases. That is what Fujitsu is trying to sell with its new Stylistic Q335, a "mini" tablet that may be small in size and even in specs but was designed with business use in mind.

These slates will join the growing roster of budget-centric Windows devices, of which some big-name companies like HP have introduced their own offerings.

Alienware Alpha ships, still no SteamOS in sight

Alienware Alpha ships, still no SteamOS in sight

Those who have pre-ordered Alienware's foray into the almost oxymoronic realm of "living room PC gaming" now have something to look forward to in the coming days. Dell has announced that the Alienware Alpha is now shipping to those early adopters and can also be bought online as well as from select retail partners. Some of that crowd, however, might be disappointed to hear that the gaming rig is indeed not shipping with SteamOS, considering Valve is quite behind schedule, and instead runs completely on Windows 8.1

Venue 11 Pro 7000 is Dell’s new Surface Pro 3 double

Venue 11 Pro 7000 is Dell’s new Surface Pro 3 double

Dell has dragged its Venue 11 Pro tablet back into the labs and given it a makeover, slimming down and speeding up the Windows 8.1 slate to better compete with Microsoft's own Surface Pro 3. The new Venue 11 Pro 7000 now looks distinctly similar to the Surface Pro 3, in fact, and Dell has seemingly taken some inspiration from there when it comes to accessories and peripherals, too, with a mobile keyboard and an active stylus both on offer. That's not to say the new Dell isn't interesting in its own right, however.
