Windows Defender destroys Superfish

Supposing you were worried that Superfish was going to ruin your Lenovo computer-loving life, there's good news this afternoon. Windows Defender version 1.193.444.0 has been pushed. This version of Windows Defender does two things. First, it detects and removes Superfish entirely. Second, it detects and removes all system certifications affected by Superfish. This means Superfish is gone, erased, and will have left the building in a way that should make it seem like this was all a bad dream. It's time to kick Superfish directly out the door.

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.

Onda V919: an iPad Air clone that runs Windows, Android

iPad and iPhone clones aren't news, but once in a while you do come face to face with one that looks like a cheap knockoff on the outside but actually offers something unique and almost tempting when you take a closer look. Take for example this Chinese-made Onda V919 3G Air which is, without a sliver of doubt, meant to copy the design of the iPad Air 2. But inside, you are met with both Windows and Android, running on specs that are almost decent and a price tag that is definitely more than decent.
