Microsoft’s October lineup: Surface Pro 4, 2 Lumias, Band 2

While Samsung went a month early to avoid the IFA and Apple rush of September, it seems that Microsoft will go the opposite route and hold its event a bit later. Two separate sources agree that October will be Microsoft's month as it will be revealing a new lineup of devices, including the Surface Pro 4, two new Lumia flagships, and the second Microsoft Band wearable. Given the Lumias, this might also be the time when Microsoft will finally launch, or even just unveil, Windows 10 Mobile.

Macy’s dressing room tablets deliver clothes via chutes

Macy’s dressing room tablets deliver clothes via chutes

Amazon is chomping up a growing number of consumers, and other retailers — particularly those of the brick-and-mortar sort — are feeling the pressure. Macy’s is trying out new methods to retain customers, and one of those methods is putting tablets in dressing rooms. The idea is that while anyone can buy something online, they can’t try it out over the Internet to see how it looks before buying...meaning that, at least for now, physical retail stores still have an edge, and they're doing everything they can to keep it.

This can only mean one thing - the next version is going to be Nuts.

LG outs G Pad II 8.0 in Korea without fuss or fanfare

Perhaps it is an indicator that even major OEMs are getting less enthusiastic about tablets. First, it was Samsung who didn't spend as much hype on the Galaxy Tab S2 as it did on its predecessor. Now, it's LG's turn. The Korean manufacturer silently launched the G Pad II 8.0, clearly a successor to the 2013 and 2014 model that even got a Google Play Edition. Or perhaps LG doesn't want to draw too much attention to this rather strange mid-range slab that bears not a USB Type-C but a full-sized USB port.

Survey reveals which tech device different generations would miss most

Survey reveals which tech device different generations would miss most

An interesting study was conducted recently in the UK, surveying people of all ages about their relationships with the common tech devices of today, including laptops, smartphones, and televisions. The results were broken down into age groups ranging from teens to over 75, and in the end it revealed not only a number of differences in the devices that different generations cling to, but also how important (or unimportant) some technologies become over time. The data was collected by the UK's Ofcom, or the equivalent of the FCC.

iPad Air 3 might be a no show this year

Apple is always rumored to be doing many things but not everything comes to pass, naturally. One of the latter, it seems, will be the iPad Air 3. Industry sources in China, suggest that Apple is being conservative about its tablet products and will therefore not be launching a successor to the iPad Air line this year. It will, however, put out a new iPad mini, expected to be announced next month. And in addition to that, of course, will be the largest iPad, the iPad Pro.
