Lenovo AI concept products try to make future life easier

Everyone’s doing AI these days, from Google to Apple, from smart speakers to smart cars. While different people and companies have different ideas about what artificial intelligence means in theory and in practice, almost all agree about using AI to build a better future. Lenovo, one of if not the leading PC makers in the world, is just as invested in this trend, or so it says. At its Tech World Innovation in Shanghai, it demonstrated just how serious it is with five AI powered products that you may or may not see in the near future.

Intel wearable dreams laid to rest, division shuttered

Intel wearable dreams laid to rest, division shuttered

Just last month, Intel bid farewell to its ambitions to corner the still nascent Internet of Things (IoT) market. Now it seems that even wearables are a no go as well. Although Intel has yet to actually formally announce or even confirm that it has pt an end to both IoT and Wearable plans, the writing has been on the wall. Not only has Intel kept mum on wearables for quite some time now, an insider source says that Intel has already closed the group in charge of pushing its wearable technologies forward.

Remix OS discontinued: here are some alternatives

Remix OS discontinued: here are some alternatives

Another “Android desktop” dream bites the dust and this time with some repercussions rippling throughout the Android community. Although far from being the only such venture, Jide and its Remix OS and devices have been the more stable and more promising one. And so it was somewhat shocking to suddenly hear Jide switching gears, focusing solely on the enterprise and leaving its consumer products to bite the dust. But while Remix OS will live on away from the public’s reach, the dream hasn’t exactly died and there are others poised to take its place.

Windows 10 Creators Update compatibility excludes these PCs

Windows 10 Creators Update compatibility excludes these PCs

Some things are too good to be true or, at the very least, too good to last. Microsoft has committed to continually update Windows 10 and offer those updates for free as part of its “Windows as a Service” paradigm but everyone knows by now it’s a less than perfect strategy. Now reality is hitting some Windows PC owners even harder as they discover their 2 to 3 year old digital partners, many of them 2-in-1 tablets, locked out of the latest Windows 10 Creators Update. All because they have been deemed incompatible, despite having just received the Anniversary Update last year.

AMD Threadripper CPU will make you want a beastly PC

AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU details have arrived, and they're ready to kick next-gen PC expectations into gear.

This could make creating convincing fake news videos too easy

This could make creating convincing fake news videos too easy

Fake news is a big and thorny subjects these days and there is no indication that it’s going away any time soon. In fact, it might get worse before it gets better. Countless people are already easily duped by legit-looking text and professionally photoshopped images. But what if they can be deceived by video as well? While the machine learning algorithms developed by University of Washington researchers have more lofty goals in mind, this “lip-syncing tech” could also be used to prank and mislead people in the future.

Dell Latitude 12 7285 comes bearing wireless charging support

Although wireless charging has been around for years, it isn’t still a staple of modern life, particularly with smartphones. That might suddenly change if Apple jumps into the fray as rumored. Perhaps trying to get a lead on others, Dell is bringing wireless charging capability to a device you might expect the least: a 2-in-1 laptop. Dell has just launched the Latitude 7000 12 7285, touted as the worlds first 2-in-1 to support wireless charging, though in a rather odd way.

You can easily install Ubuntu Linux inside Windows 10 soon

If you’re the sort of technophile that follows Microsoft’s every movement on the Windows front, then you’re probably well aware of how many times Redmond froze hell over with its professed love for Linux and open source. Now it has done so again by making it almost too easy to install Ubuntu, one of the most popular Linux distributions around, right from within the Windows Store, as if you were just installing an app.
