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.

Galaxy Note 5 event may have a tablet, too

A teaser has been released by Samsung for the next big "Unpacked" event showing not just the Galaxy Note 5 and larger "Edge", but a tablet too. This larger tablet is likely a 7-inch tablet made to take on the likes of the missing 7-inch spot in Google's collection and the iPad mini.

This opens up what is practically a very polished development device to more hands and minds, which will hopefully push Google's "crowdsourced" computer vision research even further.

IDC paints a dreary quarter for tablets

IDC paints a dreary quarter for tablets

With all the focus on high-end smartphones for the past few months, some might have forgotten that larger screens still do exist. If market analyst IDC's figures are correct, then there is a basis for that. Global shipments of tablets have sunk at a new low, as much as 7 percent compared to the same second quarter last 2014. Even compared to the first quarter of this year, there was a 3.9 percent decline in numbers, revealing a worrying trend for tablet makers, especially for Apple and Samsung.
