Today we're taking a peek at our list of expectations and rolling out that list for you, the reader, as well.

Kuo Apple event predictions: iPad mini, Pro, Macs

This week the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared a list of products Apple was likely to launch at the event set for October 30th, 2018. Kuo generally gets this sort of stuff nearly perfect, so we're having a peek. This event might well play host to a two-or-more-tiered approach for the iPad. Much like we saw with the most recent iPad release - a new device made with old parts - this event might bring the iPad mini back into the limelight.

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.

Each of the monitors has a Full HD IPS display panel with AMD FreeSync tech under the hood and what AOC calls a "true zero-edge design".

YouTube’s new desktop video player ditches black bars

YouTube is home to tons of different videos and, therefore, tons of different aspect ratios. While YouTube's desktop player is 16:9 by default (and indeed, that seems to be the go-to aspect ratio these days), there are still plenty of older videos that were recorded and uploaded in 4:3. Then, of course, we have the always controversial vertical aspect ratio of videos recorded on a smartphone.

Galaxy Note 9 may replace your PC with just a USB-C cord

There's a feature in the Samsung Galaxy S9, most recently, which allows Samsung phones to be their own miniature PC replacements. It's called DeX, aka Dockless Desktop, and it's actually pretty neat. It wasn't perfect the last time we took a closer look at it*, but it was certainly on the right track. Now, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, there's a real possibility that DeX will become a whole lot easier to get into right out the box.
