Microsoft’s folding Bluetooth keyboard plays nice with all

Microsoft’s folding Bluetooth keyboard plays nice with all

Microsoft's Universal Folding Keyboard has finally hit store shelves, with the platform-agnostic wireless peripheral playing nicely with phones and tablets. Shown off back in March alongside a pair of midrange Lumia phones, the keyboard hooks up over Bluetooth and has a dedicated switching button at the top which allows it to flick between two different devices. That way, so the theory goes, you could be typing on your iPad one moment, then flip to your Android smartphone the next.

Archos PC Stick offers Windows 10 on an HDMI dongle budget

The trend of PC sizes is interesting and amusing. For a time, computers, even laptops, have almost become gargantuan, cramming every piece of technological wizardry inside. Now, however, things are going the other ways, with laptops touting thin and lightweight bodies and PCs coming in small, nondescript boxes. We now even have perfectly usable PCs the size of an HDMI stick. Archos, who is probably more known for its Android tablets and smartphones than its Windows devices, is jumping on the latter, with a new PC stick that promises both Windows 10 and a sub-$100 price tag.

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

Back in January, HoloLens was a Frankenstein’s monster of a headset. In fact, the eyepiece itself was only part of the test rig: the rest was conspicuously tethered to it with a physical cable hooked up to a Windows 10 PC. To say there’s been a dramatic shift in hardware in the ninety days or so since then is an understatement. Microsoft brought a fleet of HoloLens prototypes to BUILD 2015, each of them a standalone computer, eyepiece, sensor rig, and spatial sound system all integrated into a single headset, and offered me the opportunity to see what creating a Windows Holographic experience was like.
