I expected Apple to jump on Leap Motion first, not ASUS

If you can judge a technology's wow-factor by how much it's accused of being vaporware, Leap Motion's gesture-tracking was a hit from the off; companies jumped on the idea, though it's perhaps a surprise that the first should be ASUS, not Apple. The matchbox-sized gadget - which can track the movement of ten fingers individually, and 200x more accurately than kit like Microsoft's Kinect - will soon be integrated into Windows 8 PCs from ASUS, according to a new deal announced today. Microsoft's OS certainly loves fingers, but Apple's moves to blend the best of OS X and iOS arguably make it and Leap Motion more obvious bedfellows.

That iPhone 5 appeal (or, confessions of a swayed Galaxy S III owner)

That iPhone 5 appeal (or, confessions of a swayed Galaxy S III owner)

I'm an Android user. I love my Samsung Galaxy S III. So why am I punching my details into the iPhone 5 reservation site every day? For the past week or so I've been using a borrowed iPhone 5, tracking how it holds up - and where it falls short - to the Android experience I've grown accustomed to. During that time I've been frustrated by Maps, impressed by the camera, and generally had my expectations of iOS shaken up some.
