Oculus Go can now cast to mobile apps for everyone to see

Oculus Go can now cast to mobile apps for everyone to see

VR and AR, especially when headsets are involved, are solitary experiences. Yes, you can join others around some virtual campfire or in a virtual disco room, but everything you see is for your eyes only and no else can experience it first hand. That is unless you let them see through your eyes. The latest update to the Oculus Go does exactly that, sort of. It will let others see what you’re seeing, except they’ll have to settle for watching it the flat screen of your phone or tablet.

New Macs might be coming next week based on Apple EEC filing

New Macs might be coming next week based on Apple EEC filing

Apple’s not so unexpected event on October 30th has sent some Android OEM scrambling to adjust their dates or even cancel. But while that event is believed to center largely around new iPad Pro tablets, it will hardly be the only one. In fact, that event might be a dumping ground for all that fans were expecting last month that never materialized, including new MacBooks and even an upgraded Mac Mini.

ASUS Chromebook C523 ventures into 15-inch territory

ASUS Chromebook C523 ventures into 15-inch territory

Barely two weeks ago, right around Google’s event, ASUS silently announced the Chromebook C423. Now it has done it again, not really announcing the Chromebook C523. The similarity in the name isn’t accidental. The two are, in many ways, identical. Both come in a traditional laptop form factor at a time when Chrome OS tablets seem to be the new trend. The difference is that the Chromebook C523 is larger than the C423. Not by much but enough to be ASUS’ first ever 15-inch Chromebook.

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

Normally I'd never say an all-in-one machine was "versatile" in basically any respect - they're supposed to be made to be easy to use, primarily. The ASUS Zen AiO seems to be something different. I've not yet gotten my hands on one, so I'm not certain how well it lives up to its claims, but it would appear that it's designed to look nice at the same time as it offers easy access to its innards - that's pretty rare.

How to Delete more default Windows 10 apps

How to Delete more default Windows 10 apps

Microsoft is gradually allowing the deletion of more default apps in Windows 10. This comes after many, many years of presumption that the most major operating systems in the world would come with a catch. If you downloaded or bought an OS from Microsoft or Apple, you'd be getting the apps they wanted you to have. Now, that trend might be fading.

Surface Laptop 2 teardown offers no hope for self-repairs

Surface Laptop 2 teardown offers no hope for self-repairs

It’s not uncommon to come across devices that score low on iFixit’s repairability index. These often include tightly enclosed smartphones and especially Apple’s products. There are, however, a few that have earned the distinction of having a score of zero. One of those is the Surface Laptop, Microsoft first and most premium notebook. With the Surface Laptop 2, Microsoft has the chance of addressing some concerns. Sadly, it seems that iFixit’s teardown adventure is a case of deja vu instead.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 gives Surface a Snapdragon 2-in-1 rival

Samsung has taken the wraps off the Galaxy Book 2, a new 2-in-1 running Windows 10 and powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850. As with other Windows on Arm machines we've seen, the big selling points for the Galaxy Book 2 are battery life and always-on connectivity, courtesy of the Snapdragon chipset's LTE modem.

One Mix 2 Yoga takes another stab at 7-inch convertible

One Mix 2 Yoga takes another stab at 7-inch convertible

The netbook line may have been declared dead in the mainstream market, but that hasn't stopped more adventurous companies from trying their hand at it in one form or another. From smartphones that unfold into a laptop to mini laptops that can fit on the palm of your hand. Somewhat. Most of these come from Chinese brands that can afford to play around with their products. One of the latest and most unconventional is the One Mix 2 Yoga, a second gen convertible laptop whose specs may sound too good to be true.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 teardown: same old, same old

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 teardown: same old, same old

You'd be forgiven if you got a major case of deja vu seeing this year's new Surface Pro 6. Unless you got the savvy new matte black color, you might, like iFixit, think you bought a spare "new Surface Pro" (2017). The incremental upgrade path is almost similar to what Apple has successfully been doing with its MacBooks. And to really drive the MacBook similarity home, the Surface Pro 6 also enjoys the same low repairability score of Apple's premium notebooks.
