Star Wars: The Force Awakens BB-8 ringtone downloads movie-accurate

Jolla greets the new year with bad news on tablet deliveries

Jolla is definitely starting the new year with a bang.

Google Pixel C Review

Google Pixel C Review

Google shows a deft touch for hardware at times, and the Pixel C is one of those occasions. It's a clear cousin to the Chromebook Pixel, with a squared-off anodized aluminum casing and Gorilla Glass protected display.
