Conquering the Backlog Part 1: Gaming my way through quarantine

Today is the first day of May, which means that 2020 is officially a third of the way over. It's hard to believe, given all that's happened this year, that we're only four months into 2020. It's a good time to look back at those New Year's resolutions and take stock of your progress, but unfortunately for me, my progress on one of my resolutions has been absolutely abysmal.

Purism Librem Mini is a privacy-focused Linux mini PC [UPDATE]

Purism Librem Mini is a privacy-focused Linux mini PC [UPDATE]

It seems that we have gotten past the obsession with dongles that gave rise to small HDMI PC sticks. Thanks to the popularity of set-top and smart TV boxes as well as the revival of the Mac Mini, we're back to being fascinated with small boxes that act as full-blown desktops, sans the discrete graphics card. Comparing Purism's latest product to the Apple Mac Mini probably isn't too far-fetched but the Librem Mini does have the advantage not only in power but in the promise of control, security, and privacy.

Google Stadia 4K streaming in web browsers and a Review Update

Today we're taking a peek at the newly-released 4K capabilities of Google Stadia in web browsers - and updating you on our ever-evolving review process with the service.

Instead of judging the device on its hard-and-fast qualities, we've got to watch what happens with the software over time. As such, and as we're seeing here with Stadia, things can actually get quite a bit better.

This morning the folks at CD PROJEKT RED announced a slight delay in the release of their next major game Cyberpunk 2077.

Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is no mere concept

Today we're taking a peek at the Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop. This is a device Razer called "the first truly modular desktop system utilizing the new ultra-compact Razer Tomahawk N1 chassis." The big deal here is the combination of simplicity of industrial design and the complexity of the construction that allows its insides to be seen and easily accessible.

Intel Horseshoe Bend prototype turns a 17-inch tablet into a 13-inch laptop

Contrary to earlier whispers, Intel wasn't shying away from foldable PCs because it found Windows 10X to still be unsuitable for the public's eyes. It did skip mentioning Microsoft's future Windows version but the CES 2020 crowd might not yet care about that, at least for now.
