Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Microsoft met some resistance with its first Surface tablet, but that isn't stopping the company from making a second attempt, this time with a full copy of Windows 8. Where the Surface RT left would-be tableteers confused with its partial app support, the Surface Pro is Windows on far more familiar territory: Intel silicon inside, and the full flexibility of a regular PC, simply with a touchscreen up-front. Of course, that also brings with it the same issues that have always plagued Windows-based tablets: battery life, weight, heat, and software usability. Does Microsoft's own-brand slate finally put those criticisms to rest, and is this the tablet you should have in your bag? Read on for our full review.

BlackBerry Z10 Review

BlackBerry Z10 Review

RIM reborn… and now it's BlackBerry, if you don't mind. Rebranded, refreshed, and desperate to impress, you can't knock BlackBerry's enthusiasm about its now-eponymous platform. Then again, it's had several months of delays in which to practice, and the BlackBerry Z10 - first out of the gate to run the OS - is so close to the two prior variants of developer device that there isn't a long list of new features to be learned. Instead, and with the arguably more important Q10 QWERTY version a couple of months off, it's a case of making an argument for BlackBerry 10 to occupy the coveted "third ecosystem" spot, and the scraps left behind from Android and iOS. Is BlackBerry 10 the OS to give Windows Phone nightmares, reboot BlackBerry itself, and snatch both consumer and enterprise crowns? Read on for our full review.

BlackBerry Z10 Review roundup: BlackBerry 10 touches the press

BlackBerry Z10 Review roundup: BlackBerry 10 touches the press

This week the first reviews of the BlackBerry 10 all-touch hero phone are appearing one by one, and this BlackBerry Z10 (as its called) is appearing to be a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to appearing as your one true "must have" device. While we're seeing the consensus surrounding the software to be relatively positive and the hardware to be generally OK, it would appear that this device may be what many have feared: too little too late. Hope should not be lost though on this one initial push - the final product may be just what you, the business professional, ordered.

Iran reportedly flies monkey into space, brings it back safely

Iran reportedly flies monkey into space, brings it back safely

Big news coming out of Iran today, as the country has reportedly flown a monkey into space and returned it safely to Earth. At any rate, that's what the country's state-run TV is claiming, and if it's true, this is a significant step forward for Iran's space program. The monkey apparently flew to height of 72 miles before returning to Earth, so provided these reports are accurate, it definitely made it into space with that kind of height.

CES 2013 wrap-up: Accessories steal the show

In some ways, one could argue that CES 2013 was really all about the accessories. Sure, a lot of companies where there unveiling new hardware, whether that hardware was a massive TV, a new gaming tablet, or a phone that has an eInk display on the backside, but there were more accessories than we care to count being shown on the floor. Each of these accessories seemed to offer something unique; each was newsworthy in it's own particular way. There were some that caught more attention than others, naturally, but nearly every accessory we saw is bound to get someone, somewhere excited.
