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.

Amazon Fire tablets get night-friendly display mode

Amazon is pushing out a software update to its Fire tablets, and among the features it brings is one becoming increasingly common — a nighttime-friendly mode that reduces blue light output to increase one’s odds of falling asleep. The idea is that blue light makes it harder to fall asleep, and thus the nighttime use of tablets and phones disrupts one’s sleep quality...unless they have this kind of display mode.

Barnes & Noble Samsung Galaxy Tab E NOOK launched

The latter represents a 22 percent decrease over 2013’s report.
