Sony’s Digital Paper Tablet finally gets a version you might use

When most of us think of e-ink devices, we probably think of something small like one of Amazon's Kindles. Sony took a different approach with its DPT-RP1 tablet, which features a display as large as a standard sheet of A4 paper and is meant for more than reading eBooks. This tablet was instead meant for the professional world, targeting occupations that handle a large number of documents, such as lawyers or doctors.

Atlas 4K Chromebook might also be a detachable

Atlas 4K Chromebook might also be a detachable

Google seems to be pretty busy shaping up Chrome OS to be a bigger threat to its rivals than ever before. After the first Chromebook tablet, the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, came the first detachable Chromebook, the HP Chromebook x2 pictured above. And it seems it's about to get even better. There are hints that Chrome OS' first 4K device, codenamed Atlas, is already in the works and now it seems that it will also be a detachable 2-in-1 as well.

OG Pixel gone from Google Store, Pixel C gets Google Assistant

OG Pixel gone from Google Store, Pixel C gets Google Assistant

Mobile devices come and go, sometimes faster than we would like. A new model is released every year, sometimes twice a year, and software updates often end two years after launch. As it becomes its own man, Google seems to have also adopted the practice of its OEM partners. Barely two years after it’s highly successful debut, the original Pixel and Pixel XL phones have been removed from the Google Store, perhaps making room for the recently spotted Pixel 3.

Chuwi Hi 9 Air pre-orders reveal a Huawei MediaPad M5 rival

Android tablets are getting rarer these days, but some OEMs are still not giving up the fight. At MWC last February, Huawei unveiled the MediaPad M5 to give the iPad Pro (and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3) a bit of a challenge. Now Chuwi is trying to beat Huawei at its own game with the Hi 9 Air. It latest and most ambitious Android tablet so far is now on pre-order with a price tag that undercuts what the MediaPad M5 is offering.

HP Chromebook x2 is a sleek 2-in-1 rival to the iPad Pro

HP was one of the first to have a Windows on ARM convertible, and now it's getting in early on Chromebook tablets, with the launch of the HP Chromebook x2. Building on the new version of Google's OS that's designed to work on devices that don't necessarily have keyboards, the Chromebook x2 arguably offers the best of both worlds.

OK Google voice detection is still listening

OK Google voice detection is still listening

I just read about a user of a Galaxy Note 8 whose update to Android Oreo re-activated "OK Google." Or at least it seemed as though OK Google worked again after he'd previously turned off Voice Detection in settings via the Google app. This can certainly happen - but not necessarily for the reasons you might think. It's probably just a mistake, right?

Chromebook 4K spotted on its way to reality

There's a codename now for the next most impressive Chromebook in the history of Chromebooks. Google's code-named this device Atlas, and it's about to hold the whole world wide web up on its shoulders - that is, a 4K display. A device of this stature would fit right in with Google's gap in hardware coverage for the highest end of great for ChromeOS devices.

The two tablets, which are priced from $49.99, have had Alexa support since launch, but it's not worked in quite the same way as you'd experience the voice assistant through an Echo or Echo Dot.

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

Apple’s devices have never been easy to open up and repair. They are intentionally designed to discourage tampering, which, sadly, also makes repairs harder and more expensive. Especially since most owners are pushed to only use authorized Apple repair services. The newest iPad, a.k.a. the 2018 iPad or the iPad 6, carries a lot of the previous generation’s design so its iFixit repairability score isn’t exactly surprising. That said, sticking to that almost ancient design ironically gives this iPad an advantage when it comes to repairs.

The new iPad is perfect for this Darkest Timeline

The new iPad is perfect for this Darkest Timeline

This week Apple introduced a new iPad made of old parts, with a couple new features in tow. I believe this was the most ideal piece of hardware Apple could possibly have released in this darkest timeline. I'm speaking of course of the Community-solidified concept of the Darkest Timeline, the reality in which all of the most extremely unbelievable (if not most evil) thing have come to fruition. This is not the worst Apple could have done - it's their best defense against disaster in these dark days through which we're living.
