Windows 8 Review

Windows 8 Review

I have a confession to make: I never tried the Windows 8 consumer preview. You see, I’ve been a lifelong Windows user (I can remember my parents making a big deal out of our switch to Windows 3.1), and as a lifelong Windows user, I’ve been burned plenty of times in the past. Most recently, this happened with Windows Vista, so when Windows 7 came along, I decided that it was the only Windows version I needed for the foreseeable future. Sure, I watched plenty of videos and read plenty of articles about Windows 8, but none of those convinced me that OS was something I needed to have on my machine. Yet here I am, reviewing Windows 8 for SlashGear. Can Microsoft’s latest version of the OS persuade this stubborn Windows 7 user that the grass really is greener on the other side? Read on to find out.

iPhone 5 Review

iPhone 5 Review

Apple's iPhone 5 has a lot to live up to. Its predecessor set sales records; its original ancestor changed the smartphone industry immeasurably. In the five years since the first iPhone, Apple's smartphones have taken the company's value sky-high, and made it a star performer in an otherwise laboring tech segment. In question: could the iPhone 5 shift the game ahead once again, while still retaining the essential DNA that makes iPhone users and developers so loyal to the platform? With competition surging, a bigger, faster, and bolder iPhone steps into the fray. Read on for our full iPhone 5 review to see if it can live up to those expectations.

HTC’s Precipice Moment

HTC’s Precipice Moment

Seldom has the smartphone divide looked so broad. HTC's financial results for the last quarter, revealed earlier today, puts the company in with struggling Nokia and RIM, an ocean away from the cash-stacked Apple and Samsung. Having already posted one appalling quarter this year, HTC missed market expectations and posted another year-on-year slump in profit, as the One Series failed to set consumers alight in the way the company had hoped.

So who’ll buy OnLive now?

So who’ll buy OnLive now?

Sony's acquisition of Gaikai today closes off one long-standing rumor of a cloud gaming investment, but opens up another: which rival can't afford to leave OnLive on the shelf? Whispers that Sony was eyeing a cloud specialist culminated back in May with OnLive and Gaikai presumed the most likely candidates for powering the company's long-standing "Four Screen" strategy, something Sony described as its retort to Apple's iOS, iTunes and iCloud ecosystem. That leaves OnLive potentially up for grabs, and a number of potential suitors.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Review

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Review

This week we've gotten the opportunity to take an up close and personal peek at the Acer Iconia Tab A700, an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a high definition display and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor under the hood. This Acer device looks and feels rather similar to its predecessor, the Iconia Tab A500, but its components set it in a class all its own. This tablet has a 10.1-inch display with 1920 x 1200 pixels across it, this making it a 224ppi dense display-toting beast of a machine.

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i scanner is almost the road-warrior’s salvation

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i scanner is almost the road-warrior’s salvation

Having talked about how you can print from your iPhone yesterday, now how about getting some paper content into your handset thanks to the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i. The portable scanner works with PCs and Macs, as per previous models, but also plays nicely with iOS and Android devices thanks to apps for each platform. Unfortunately, it's not quite the roadwarrior dream it could've been.

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

If there's such a thing as heritage in the relatively fledgling world of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S III has it. Seldom does a phone - at least, one not wearing an Apple logo - arrive to so many expectations, and this time around Samsung even managed to match its Cupertino rival for pre-launch hype, rumor and intrigue. If the original Galaxy S convinced us Samsung could indeed be a top-tier player, and the Galaxy S II played an instrumental role in overshadowing the rest of the Android ecosystem, then we probably won't be satisfied until the Galaxy S III trounces every other handset on the market. The Korean firm has the ambition, certainly, but does it have the device to do it? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HTC makes no Sense

HTC makes no Sense

You have to ask yourself whether HTC enjoys floundering. The company was doing so well, with an eye-catching range of appealing new devices that didn't feel like yesterday's hardware, along with the promise of a more proactive approach to software and services. Now it has dropped the bomb on HTCSense.com, its web-based hub for smartphones and tablets: after April 30, Sense online syncing of Contacts, Messages, Footprints and Call History will all be wiped out. There's "renovation" incoming, HTC claims, but it's hard to think of a much worse way that the company could've handled it.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: March 12, 2012

Happy Monday, everyone. Hopefully your start of the new work week wasn't too painful, but even if it was we have some irresistible tech news to keep you sane. First up, here's an update on the new iPad - it's been revealed that 1 million units were sold in the device's first day of pre-orders. Not too shabby.
