iPad PRO dummy: multiple port irony

iPad PRO dummy: multiple port irony

Could it be that, just weeks after releasing the 2015 "MacBook", Apple would release an iPad that brings MORE power to their tablet lineup? With the MacBook, the user gets fewer ports than with the MacBook Pro and fewer ports than the MacBook Air. With the iPad Pro, tipped this week for the umpteenth time over the last few months, we see more ports than in previous iPads. This version, it would seem, comes with two USB-C ports instead of one lightning port.

Destroy your tablet with a Selfie Stick attachment

If the normal Selfie Stick wasn't enough to get you pumped up about taking a picture of yourself near a crash site, the Tablet Attachment must be. This device attaches to a standard selfie stick monopod pole and gives you room to grip your tablet. You can hook on to an iPad and hold it aloft, taking a front-facing selfie photo from all sorts of different angles. Have we reached Peak Selfie Stick? Between this and that New York Post cover - yes, yes we have.

All 650 MPs in House of Commons to receive iPad Air 2

All 650 MPs in House of Commons to receive iPad Air 2

Once the current elections are wrapped up, all 650 members of the House of Commons will receive a special tool to help them perform their tasks. With a funding boost of about $300,000 (£200,000) annually, the MPs will all get an iPad Air 2 and a laptop of unknown make. It’s the latest workaround for Apple, who has been diligently working to get the iPad into hands of enterprise, schools, and now government. Questions loom, though, as critics say MPs will be playing games, not passing laws.

New Ebola-proof tablet designed for medical field workers

New Ebola-proof tablet designed for medical field workers

Ebola field doctors' need for an "Ebola-proof" tablet is finally filled. Hose it down with de-contaminating bleach, and all of the data will still be safe as its virus-free exterior. Here's something you probably never considered about the world's Ebola outbreaks: How can doctors and nurses keep track of patient data when every piece of paper, pen, and clipboard becomes contaminated just by being in the hot zone? As it turns out, according to Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the doctors were shouting patient data over makeshift barricades to avoid spreading the contagion.

Acer Aspire Switch 11 review: the best of both worlds

Acer is back with another convertible PC: the Acer Aspire Switch 11. As with this machine's previous iteration, the Aspire Switch 11 is both a tablet and a laptop, being whichever you'd like it to be in any given moment. This is nothing new, but these type of machines can often miss the mark when it comes to usability. Such isn't the case with the Switch 11 -- though a bit on the thick side, this convertible PC works wonderfully as a laptop and even better as a tablet. Will it meet your needs? Read our full review to find out!

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Android tablet flaunts Full HD display

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Android tablet flaunts Full HD display

It's been a while since we've heard from Acer's budget Iconia Tab line and apparently the OEM has been busy. Although the company's affordable devices sometimes earn it the connotation of being cheap, whether deserved or not, this time it isn't holding back. At least too much. While the new Iconia Tab 10 does still fall under the category of budget tablet, Acer is at least giving it a worthy Full HD screen, which, with Zero Air Gap tech, makes it a rather worthy one for the price.

Samsung’s new 128GB eMMC 5.0 storage targets the lower end

Samsung’s new 128GB eMMC 5.0 storage targets the lower end

As repeatedly mentioned before, with the push for higher displays and CPUs on smartphones slowing down just a wee bit, attention is now being given to the last part of the system to catch up: storage. We are entering a period of not just faster flash memory for mobile devices but also growing densities. Samsung is now trying to pull up even those on lower rungs of the device tier by bringing out the highest density 128 GB eMMC 5.0 storage squarely marketed for mid-range devices.
