Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Despite what seems to be nothing but losses on the mobile front, Intel isn't ready to call it quits just yet, at least not formally. While some companies (HP and Sony come to mind) are divorcing their businesses in order to remain profitable in at least one area, Intel isn't about to let someone else take its mobile and tablet business elsewhere. Instead, it will be merging that loss-making unit into its division in charge of making chips for PCs, in the hopes that they will finally hit some sweet spot in the end.

Intel’s MICA: more than just a pretty face, still pricey

Intel’s MICA: more than just a pretty face, still pricey

Intel has just announced the availability of its new wearable MICA, short for My Intelligent Communication Accessory, where Intel and Opening Ceremony try bring up a product that blends technology and fashion. Unequivocally targeted at women who have a penchant for both worlds, MICA flaunts materials that very few smartbands and smartwatches would dare to wear. But it also has a bit of smarts hidden inside as well, though somewhat a bit less than a smartwatch, which still sounds quite OK, at least until you get to the price tag.

Nixie personal drone wins with Intel: coming your way soon

Nixie personal drone wins with Intel: coming your way soon

There's nothing impersonal about a little drone that attaches to your wrist then releases, flying, following you whenever you like. It's like having a personal assistant whose one purpose is watching everything you do. And streaming it. Capturing it for the whole world to see, followed by a return to your wrist to rest. We think it's an improbable device, but one that'd be amazing if realized - Intel thinks so too.

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

The following review is going to be short and to the point. Not because it doesn't deserve more words, not because it's not an important product. We'd never do such a thing. Instead, this review is going to be short because there's not much to say that we didn't already say in our first Falcon Northwest Tiki review and subsequent crowning of the device as the best gaming PC of the year in 2013. Never mind the fact that it was actually unveiled before the year began.

Dell Venue 8 7000 set to ship in the US end of November

Dell Venue 8 7000 set to ship in the US end of November

Dell will soon be bringing its most premium and yet, at the same time, oddest Android tablet to the US market just in time for the holidays. While the Dell Venue 8 7000 is already quite impressive from the specs alone, flaunting high-end gear all crammed inside an extremely thin profile, the tablet's real selling point would be its rear cameras. Yes, you read that right. The Dell Venue 8 7000 has not one, not even two, but three back-facing cameras to give you, or the tablet rather, a better sense of depth.

Samsung Chromebook 2 packs Intel chip for entry-level

Samsung Chromebook 2 packs Intel chip for entry-level

Samsung has launched a new version of its Chromebook 2, an 11.6-inch notebook running Google's Chrome OS and powered by an Intel processor rather than one of the South Korean's own Exynos ARM chips. The new notebook will drop at under $250, challenging low-cost Windows laptops in the process, while battery life will be a healthy nine hours according to Samsung's estimates. On the outside, meanwhile, there's a faux-leather finish which is likely to prove divisive among Chromebook buyers.
