AMD, Dell, Intel, Lenovo, Samsung and LG Display have announced plans to discontinue VGA connectivity on their products, with the ageing legacy connector expected to disappear from their ranges by 2015.

Amidst the other hot topic that seems to be taking over the Internet right now, BenQ has released a brand new camcorder that, for those who love some pico projectors, may be an interesting addition to their holiday wish list.

Another day, another tablet. This time around, it's coming from Coby. The Kyros Internet tablet is a touchscreen device that's running Android under the hood, and there's a few features in the small package that may interest anyone out there who's not wanting to go the mainstream route. Unfortunately, it's not a powerhouse, so it won't be winning any rewards any time soon for the speed it possesses.
