Future Chromebooks might have eSIM, Project Fi support

Still don’t believe that Chromebooks are out to get Android tablets? This latest clue could be one of the nails on that Android coffin. While Chromebooks have always been designed as portable devices, give or take a few grams, they haven’t exactly been completely portable because of one thing: reliance on Wi-Fi connectivity. That could be changing in the next generation of Chrome OS devices with signs that Chrome OS is getting support for eSIMs that will integrate with Google’s own Project Fi as well as other carriers’ networks.

Rare Apple-I in working condition hits charity auction

It might be rare but not totally unheard of to see older computers of ages past being sold or help for auction. It is, however, rare to see one of the very few Apple-I computers in existence getting that treatment. Even rarer when that said 42-year old computer can still actually boot up, with very few modifications. That is exactly what this charity is offering when it put up an extremely rare “Duston 2” Apple-I for auction. Given its significance, we won’t be surprised if it raises tremendous amounts of cash in the next half month.

DreamWorld DreamGlass headset makes AR more accessible

Considering the product and company names, it might be cringe-worthy to say that DreamWorld’s DreamGlass is a dream come true. At least that’s the promise of what could be the most affordable AR headset in the market. But more than just a cheaper headset, DreamGlass is promising things that few other augmented reality platforms make, including compatibility with both PCs and smartphones and, even better, hand gesture recognition. No more unnatural sticks or wands!

AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper boasts a whopping 32 cores

It's a core numbers game again. This time, however, the competition has reached double digits. While desktop and laptop CPUs still dawdle on quad cores, AMD and rival Intel are heating it up in the server and enterprise market. Just after Intel boasted about its upcoming 28-core chip slated for late 2018, AMD dropped its own bombshell. It has 32 cores and it's not afraid to use it. In fact, it's also coming sooner, around the third quarter of the year.

ASUS Project Precog concept takes trends to ridiculous heights

ASUS has just driven two of the tech and mobile market’s largest hype trains and made them collide with each other.

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 and ScreenPad put a twist to multitasking

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 and ScreenPad put a twist to multitasking

Productivity gurus these days may frown upon multitasking but computers are just built for that purpose. And given the trend these days, humans are heading down that road, for better or worse. Perhaps those same productivity gurus will frown upon ASUS’ new ZenBook Pro 15 and ZenBook Pro 14 for that same reason. These already powerful laptops are made even more powerful by a 5.5-inch Full HD ScreenPad masquerading as its touchpad. And this “second display” is made for one thing and one thing alone: help you be more efficient by letting you do more things at the same time.
