Fujitsu Stylistic Q335 is an 8-inch Windows tablet for the enterprise

Ever since Microsoft opened the licensing doors, Windows 8 tablets have started coming in all shapes, sizes, and prices. Even major OEMs are scrambling to fill their low end portfolio with budget Windows tablets. But just because they're low key doesn't mean they can't be used for more serious cases. That is what Fujitsu is trying to sell with its new Stylistic Q335, a "mini" tablet that may be small in size and even in specs but was designed with business use in mind.

This time, LG is going for thin and light, advertising the Tab Book Duo to be the ultimate portable workstation that won't burden your shoulders, arms, or hands. At least not too much.

Intel acquires PasswordBox, may include service with McAfee

Security for your Intel-toting PC may soon be getting a whole lot easer. Intel made clear this morning that they'd be acquiring PasswordBox, a service that will allow users to collect all of their webpage passwords in to one package, requiring that they only remember a single password instead. PasswordBox has been in service for about a year, having been downloaded by users over 14 million times in the past 12-18 months. Intel has not let it be known exactly how they'll be integrating PasswordBox into their own services yet, but they have suggested that the PasswordBox will be moved into their security software business.

Lenovo snaps MacBooks to push YOGA 3 Pro

To make clear that the Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro does, indeed, bend all the way backwards, Lenovo has taken to the mall to drop some pranks on unsuspecting shoppers. Working with the UCB Comedy crew and Above Average, Michael Kayne, Shaun Diston, and Jim Santangeli bring on some pre-broken MacBooks and some Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro units to a demonstration kiosk for the public.

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Finally, a truly great Windows laptop. Lenovo's YOGA 3 Pro is thin, yet robust. It's powerful enough to handle tasks like video processing and light gaming, yet its battery life is optimized to such a degree that I'm able to use it like I would my main work notebook. The Lenogo YOGA 3 Pro transforms between a notebook, a touch display, and a tablet, but its abilities aren't just in place to be retrofitted to Windows 8's touchscreen intentions. The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro isn't perfect, but it's very, very close.

Windows Schannel bug as bad as Heartbleed, patch available

Windows Schannel bug as bad as Heartbleed, patch available

The tech world as a whole is still reeling from the OpenSSL vulnerability that was so bad that it was baptized with its own name. Now Microsoft might have an equally terrible, or perhaps even worse, issue in its hands. A bug in its Schannel (short for "Secure channel") security package could, in theory, allow any hacker to remotely run a program just by sending a specially crafted network packet to a Windows server. To add insult to injury, this security exploit exists in a wide range of Windows version dating back 2003.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro notebook is thin, it's transformable, and it would appear to be Microsoft's newest favored son as it does battle with the MacBook Air in Microsoft's newest TV ad spot. This device is thinner than the MacBook Air. It's able to bend backwards far enough to turn itself into a tablet. It's got a touchscreen. It's also very similar looking to the MacBook Air from afar - but they really couldn't be more difference, when it comes down to it.
