LG Chromebook might make its debut in a few months

Chromebook shipments have skyrocketed in the past year and a half, thanks or no thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to remote work and schooling.

Moto Watch 100 sightings hint that the comeback is near

When smartwatches first came to the market, Motorola enjoyed the prestige of being the first to dare put a familiar circular face on the nascent wearables.

In addition to the high-end Xperia 1 line, now at its third iteration, Sony also launched the rather odd and expensive Xperia PRO targeting professional mobile photographers and cinematographers.

The issues have been growing since the social network became more popular with older users, resulting in an influx of parents, grandparents, and the sort of content teenagers aren't interested in.
