Intel-powered wearables by end of 2013 says Glass-owning CEO

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has been personally testing Google Glass and expects the chip company's silicon to show up in wearables before the end of 2013, though the freshly-installed exec is coy on his predecessors Web TV intentions. "We're being cautious" Kranich said on the IPTV plans Intel said would launch this year, despite his predecessor, Paul Otellini, being gung-ho about the scheme.

ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 and FHD 10 tablets get official

ASUS has two new mainstream tablets for Computex 2013 this week, and they each bring some interesting differentiators: the MeMo Pad HD 7 has a super-low price tag, kicking off at $129, while the MeMo Pad FHD 10 steps up to a Full HD display and slides in one of Intel's Atom processors.
