This week, two events perfectly demonstrated humanity's almost schizophrenic relationship with artificial intelligence. First, Terminator: Genisys, with threat of Skynet looming over our heads, premiered on the big screen. Second, a consortium of tech companies and AI researchers has just revealed 37 research grants to keep AI from going out of control.

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review – a subtle but solid update

The Lenovo X240's older sibling has arrived, and it is aptly named the Lenovo X250.
