Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Review

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Review

Lenovo has been pushing out some interesting devices, and its new YOGA Tablet 2 is one of the biggest stands outs among them. How so? For starters, you can hang it on the kitchen wall when you're trying to follow a recipe. The hinge is rounded, doubling as a grip when holding the tablet in portrait orientation. This same hinge allows the "display" to be adjusted in the same smooth increments as a laptop when attached to the accompanying keyboard. Do these features round out an already excellent tablet, however, or are they merely gimmicks? Read our full review to find out!

Too much phone, tablet use may gimp kids’ development

Too much phone, tablet use may gimp kids’ development

Back in the days, our folks would tell us that watching TV would turn us into brainless zombies. Today, that might have some truth as well when it comes to heavy use of mobile devices. Boston University Medical Center researchers are now questioning the effects that these devices have, especially on children below 2 years of age, theorizing that a heavy dose of mobile could, in fact, be detrimental to social, emotional, and even mental skills that can only be learned through human-human interaction.

Google’s Project Tango graduates from skunkworks

Google Glass isn't alone in getting shuffled around Google, with the 3D-tracking tablet Project Tango graduating today from the Advanced Technology and Projects division. Tango, which aims to do for indoor positioning and 3D mapping what GPS did for navigation, uses a combination of precise movement sensors, cameras, and depth-tracking to build up complex 3D environments in real-time, has until now been placed within Google ATAP, the company's ideas incubator. Now, with developer hardware in the wild, it's time for Tango to get serious.

Jolla Tablet goes for a second round with 64 GB in tow

Jolla Tablet goes for a second round with 64 GB in tow

Some say "third time's a charm", but for the folks at Finnish startup Jolla, the second one might already be just as sweet. The Jolla Tablet is returning to Indiegogo again, but not exactly for a complete second crowdfunding campaign. It's more like an extension of the original highly successful one, but this time with another chance to pledge your allegiance if you haven't done so yet, and a chance to upgrade the internal memory from 32 to 64 GB. Of course, for a price.

Purported iPad Pro case leaked, has four speaker cutouts

The iPad Pro is widely rumored to be Apple’s foray into bigger tablets, challenging the size of a computer screen. At a reported 12-inches or better, the rumored tablet has reached mythical levels. While Apple admits they’ve discussed a larger tablet, the last we’d heard about it from Apple was that it wasn’t even a ‘thing’ yet. The rumors won’t go away, though, and a new one is showing off what could be an early accessory for the big device.

Small Windows 10 tablets won’t get desktop mode

Small Windows 10 tablets won’t get desktop mode

Perhaps Microsoft was too quick to sing the Windows 10 unification song, and perhaps we were to quick to buy the spiel. After practically saying that Windows 10 is for everyone, Redmond is now revealing the fine print, slowly and in bits and pieces. After vaguely alluding to the Windows RT's demise, Microsoft is more clearly and more explicitly revealing one subtle yet important caveat to the Windows 10 promise. Any Window 10 device smaller than 8 inches, whether phone or tablet, will not be getting the desktop mode.

Ideum’s Duet brings Windows 8, Android to one table

Some people complain that smartphones are too large or that even some tablets are too big. You might wonder if they're going to complain about something that's actually the size of a table as well. Ideum has quite a number of such touch-enabled smart tables, but the new Duet has a very particular feat. It is touted to be the world's first such "smart furniture" that brings both Windows 8 and Android to the table, literally. How long that will be the case is something yet to be seen.

Happy Birthday iPad, you’re dead

Happy Birthday iPad, you’re dead

If you take a look, today you'll find a collection of articles written from the perspective of an iPad hater. Not because the iPad is dying, but because sales figures from Apple suggest that iPad sales aren't growing. They're taking a bit of a dive, as it were. Tablets in general aren't selling all that well, and more than a couple of analysts are on quests to find out why. Is it because everyone already has a smartphone that's big enough to be called a tablet? Does everyone already own an iPad, not needing another?

Oomi Cube wants to make your smart home automated

Oomi Cube wants to make your smart home automated

There's a group out there that hopes to redefine what it means to create a Smart Home. Still here in the Smart Home's infancy, the group behind this brand Oomi hopes to take the definition of Smart Home - "a home equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by a phone or computer," and throw that all in the trash. Or at least make a more automated system of it all. No more of this "smartphone control makes everything super amazing" nonsense.
