The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

Last week we took the iPad Pro again for a spin, trying to verify, or refute, Apple's claims about the tablet being the ultimate PC replacement. And just in time, the company just released a video ad just few days ago that tries to make the same point again. But iOS is hardly the only game in town, especially on mobile. And while Google hasn't exactly made a similar claim for Android, others have spoken for it instead. But before go off on another crazy adventure, we first have to look at the few, of course unofficial, attempts at making Android the ultimate PC replacement, as far as OS is concerned at least. Yes, this is the so-called "Android PC".

Dell retires Alienware X51 line, Aurora, Alpha to carry on

It appears Android tablets aren't the only ones getting the boot over at Dell. The PC maker has just revealed that it is putting to rest the rather young gaming PC line that brought it much attention in the past years.

“BATMAN – The Telltale Series” launch date announced

There's a new bat in town, and it ain't your older brother's Batman. In development, and teased, for quite some time now, "BATMAN - The Telltale Series" is a video game that takes quite a different stab at the uber popular Dark Night. Because instead of mashing buttons to dish out pain, which you can't do anyway on mobile, you will instead be relying on your wits and decision making abilities to solve crime, beat the bad guys, and maybe catch a kitty by its tail in the process.
