Soon devices running Chrome with x86 processors that do not support SSE3 will no longer be able to run said web browser.

A reminder: CES 2021 still exists, it’s just… different

It seems like a lifetime ago that we were last live and in-person at the Las Vegas tech event called CES. The year 2020 threw the whole world into chaos - and tech events like CES were no exception. Here in the year 2021, CES is an all-digital event, which essentially means we'll have a LOT of the same content, with slightly less hands-on action. We'll also have more "smart masks."

Mac mini M1 Review – The great Apple leveler

Of all the reasons to be excited by Apple Silicon, its potential to put high-end performance in more affordable computers like the Mac mini M1 could be the biggest.

ORIGIN RestoMod Limited Edition PC is a disappointing paint job

ORIGIN RestoMod Limited Edition PC is a disappointing paint job

Retro consoles might be the trend in gaming these days but they hardly the only ones in that line of business. Going by a different name, car enthusiasts have been creating modified restored classics for ages. PC maker ORIGIN is taking a page out of that book, not to mention the name, with a new limited edition gimmick for old-school PC lovers. The RestoMod PC, however, is pretty much a powerful modern desktop that looks old only on the front and not in a very exciting way at that.

Desktop PC sales drop again as tablets, Chromebooks fly

Desktop PC sales drop again as tablets, Chromebooks fly

2020 will definitely be remembered for the drastic, sometimes very negative, changes that happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has affected all quarters and industries around the world, though not all in the same way. The PC market, for example, has found a bit of reprieve after years of slumping sales and profits. But while PC shipments have gone up, not all categories enjoy that same growth and the computers normally associated with the term "PC" are actually still in the red, perhaps even more than before.
