Google’s mobile future is in App Streaming

Google's next big play for the mobile universe (with Android, for now) is in the ability to stream an app instead of downloading it to your device. Instead of downloading an app to book a hotel, for instance, then tossing the app away after you're done with your vacation, Google wants you to stream it. You'll see the app pretty much the same way you'd see any other app, but all of its content will be hosted on the internet.

Cook asks why would anyone still buy a PC: here are 5 reasons

Cook asks why would anyone still buy a PC: here are 5 reasons

The iPad Pro is technically a wonderful device, but that might be a bit overshadowed by the biggest question that will hound its existence to the very end. Why buy such a huge tablet? Or to be more precise, why buy such a huge iOS tablet? Days before it launched, Apple chief executive Tim Cook answered this question with another question. Why would anyone still buy a PC, even going as far as explicitly predicting how the iPad Pro will replace desktops and laptops for many people. To stop the "answer a question with another question" pattern, here are 5 reasons why iPad Pro, at least for the moment, isn't going to replace even your laptop just yet.

DisplayMate on iPad Pro: great but iPad mini 4 still better

DisplayMate on iPad Pro: great but iPad mini 4 still better

It is perhaps not totally inaccurate to say that the iPad Pro is Apple's most contentious device of late. The unconventionally large size, the stylus pencil, and the straggling of the fine line between tablet and laptop. That said, it might also be one of the best in its class. Well, almost the best. While the gigantic iPad Pro does have major improvements when it comes to display technology, it might instead be outclassed by Apple's most recent and smallest tablet to date, the latest iPad mini 4.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

Today we're going to take a quick look at the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 and discuss why this device is the best tablet that money can buy. When we had a look at the original NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, it was very apparent that NVIDIA's tablet-making opponents were going to have a tough time competing with the features and overall quality of this top-notch piece of equipment. One year later and not one tablet can hold a flame to the SHIELD for its combination of quality and price. And now it's cheaper than it was before. What's going on here, you might ask?

No iPad/MacBook hybrid from Apple, says Tim Cook

No iPad/MacBook hybrid from Apple, says Tim Cook

Bad news for Apple users who are attracted to the idea of Microsoft's new Surface Book — a laptop with a detachable tablet-display — and hoping the Cupertino company would release something of their own one day: it's going to be a very long wait. Just a few days after Tim Cook had some unflattering things to say about the Surface Book, the Apple CEO stated that they have no plans to develop an iPad and MacBook hybrid device.

The iPad Pro is here: Now its trial-by-fire begins

The iPad Pro is here: Now its trial-by-fire begins

You already know it's big, and that it's powerful, but does the iPad Pro have what it takes to survive on the road as a true notebook replacement? Apple's 12.9-inch tablet is the biggest outing for iOS to-date, and just as we realized back when it was first announced, it's not only a huge deal for the Cupertino firm but a huge device period.

Acer Predator 8 gaming tablet goes into pre-order at last

Acer Predator 8 gaming tablet goes into pre-order at last

Delayed by almost a week, Acer has finally opened up pre-orders for its first gaming tablet. Acer really surprised the tech crowd last July when it hinted that it was making a gaming tablet, a boast that it made true at IFA last September when it revealed the Predator 8. The manufacturer is dangling the holy grail of heavy mobile gaming, thanks to an Intel chip, at a dirt cheap price. Now that the Acer Predator 8 is finally ready to ship, starting this Friday, we might finally find out if that has any truth to it.

iPad Pro iFixit discoveries: space-eating speakers, gobs of glue

iPad Pro iFixit discoveries: space-eating speakers, gobs of glue

Now that the iPad Pro is out, at least online, it's time for iFixit to do its magic. Hopefully this time they've got their legal stuff covered. Being the most unconventional Apple device, the iPad Pro is, of course, the most curious. And we're not even speaking only about its external body and features. Naturally, it's a challenge that the teardown experts could never resist and challenged they were indeed, with the iPad Pro holding many secrets. And not all of them good for repairing.

Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

This week we've been working with the Tstand, a tablet holder that'll allow you to use your tablet without cranking your neck or your knees. It's big. There's no denying that this stand isn't going to fit into your standard iPad sleeve - but at W 9.5” x L 10.25” x H 2.25 it's also not so large that it won't fit into your 13-inch notebook sleeve. The version we're working with is made mainly of ABS plastic, with silicone rubber bumpers to hold the tablet in place. This stand may look strange, but it might also be the tablet companion you didn't know you needed.

iPad Pro Review round-up: bridging the notebook gap

iPad Pro Review round-up: bridging the notebook gap

Early reviews of the iPad Pro are in, appearing to understand that Apple wants to replace your laptop, but not necessarily agreeing with that possibility wholeheartedly. While several publications suggest that the iPad Pro is ready to carve out a new spot in the device ecosphere, others say it's not quite ready to replace your laptop just yet. Most seem to agree that the device is top-notch for those that wish to create artwork or write notes all the livelong day. Have a peek at the collection and see what you think.
