Internet Archive now has, and runs, Windows 3.1 programs

The Internet Archive, perhaps more known for its archive.org address, has an interesting history. What started as a website to hold old copies of web pages for posterity's sake, the archives has become home to the many of the computing world's history, both the highs and the lows, from websites to games and, more recently, even malware. And now, the Internet Archive has added one more important part of history, making available Windows 3.1 programs for yesteryears, and allowing uses not only to view but even run such ancient software in their browsers.

Windows tablets rose 11% in 2015 at Apple’s expense

Windows tablets rose 11% in 2015 at Apple’s expense

The tablet market had it hard in 2015, with shipments having sunk even further than the previous year. Almost all analysts seem to agree to that. What some of the most popular ones don't seem to see eye to eye is who among those tablet vendors actually won in the market last year, at least relatively speaking. We've seen IDC's analysis of how the large iPad Pro helped put Apple above the crowd. Strategy Analytics, however, paints a slightly different picture. Sure, Apple has the bigger numbers, but Windows tablets are the ones that actually saw the most, in fact only, growth.

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

The Acer Predator 17 is not just a good first-shot from a relatively new gaming line, it's a darn good notebook in and of itself. This laptop is large enough to give you a full gaming experience without being so bulky you'll never move it from your desk. This laptop is also clearly a gaming machine, but doesn't look like you decided on your hardware's look when you were young and foolish. In short - this is the gaming laptop you want if you're not afraid to go big, but don't want to drop cash on just any ol' run-of-the-mill flashy gamer unit.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro Review

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro Review

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro does not have a sexy name, nor has it been the subject of extensive ad backing by the company that makes it. This computer isn't the epitome of mind-blowing uniqueness in its form or its function. There are a few problems with this notebook, but none of them have to do with the hardware. In fact, aside from the fact that this machine runs Windows 10, there's very little that I'd change in this device in order to call it the best notebook on the market today.
