Surface Pro Review 2017

Surface Pro Review 2017

The Surface Pro Review we have here passes judgement on the Surface Pro released in June of 2017, as first outlined earlier this year. With the newest version of the Surface Pro, Microsoft made an equivalent to the iMac G4 by combining two important elements. The Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is both enjoyable to use in a unique way, and it’s reliable. The unique/enjoyable factor comes from the keyboard attachment – the one that doesn’t come standard with the Surface itself.

2018 Hyundai Kona First Drive: Better late than never for all-new SUV

2018 Hyundai Kona First Drive: Better late than never for all-new SUV

Is it ok to be late to the party if you make a stylish entrance? That would appear to be the question asked by the new 2018 Hyundai Kona, the Korean automaker's first 'cute ute,' a subcompact crossover aimed at the growing slice of buyers trading in sedans for the all-wheel drive hatchbacks on stilts that are taking over the industry. The Kona's appearance in showrooms might lag chronologically behind options like the Jeep Renegade, the Mazda CX-3, and the Honda HR-V - we're unlikely to see it go on sale in the United States until the first quarter of 2018 - but Hyundai has pegged its hopes on pairing strong value with appealing design in its bid for the affections of space-seeking shoppers.

Google Pixel XL 2 gets even bigger (6P size returns!)

Google Pixel XL 2 gets even bigger (6P size returns!)

The next big Google phone, likely called Google Pixel XL 2, seems to be getting as big as the company's original huge phone: the Nexus 6P. This week speculation came of the cancellation of the mid-sized Pixel 2 thanks to a series of insider tips (linked below). Because Google's been working on three new devices for the next wave, instead of two, the cutting out of the mid-sized device won't have that giant an effect on the everyday average consumer. We'll weep for the lack of a 5.5-inch display, but the device we'll get will probably be better off for it.

Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock Review: MacBook Pro ports, at a price

Thunderbolt 3 may be the wunderport of the future, but sometimes it feels like nobody told the peripheral-makers that. While notebooks like the most recent MacBook Pro may have switched entirely to Thunderbolt 3 and the USB Type-C connector, actually finding things to plug into them can be hard going. Enter Belkin's Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock, one of the first to market to take advantage of the connection's 40 Gbps throughput and power/display/data flexibility.

The Best Cloud Storage of 2017 – An overview of providers

Computing devices are getting more powerful, more varied, and more ubiquitous, but the data storage in these devices hasn't changed that much. We are still beholden to the HDDs, SSDs, and eMMCs or UFS of yesteryears. In fact, the storage story has become even more complicated because each device has its own storage that you have to manage or keep in sync with other devices.

Enter cloud computing and cloud storage, with its promise of being able to access your data anytime, anywhere. Well, as long as you have an Internet connection, that is. It is an inescapable fact of modern day computing life and it pays to know the choices you have. Here are ten of the top cloud storage options this half of the year.

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google just hired Apple's processor designer for mobile products, and they've put him in charge of making their own Pixel SOC. Manu Gulati worked with companies like AMD and Broadcom before moving to Apple in 2009, leading as inventor on a number of key processor-related patents. This may mean that Google will follow in Apple's footsteps for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 3 (probably 3, at this point) - which could mean the axe for Qualcomm from Pixel devices.

Keep your eye on $ETH or Ethereum’s major weakness

Keep your eye on $ETH or Ethereum’s major weakness

Investors in Ethereum have seen massive rises in price over the past month - but that's all going to end soon. I'm not certain, of course - nobody can know absolutely what's going to happen in any market, cryptocoin or otherwise. But what I'm seeing and what I'm hearing is that a coin that went from around $240 to nearly $400 in a month isn't going to stick there for long. Not because of investors getting jumpy, necessarily, but because of the reasons for the rise.
