  • Can Microsoft's new Surface 3 replace your notebook?

    By By Sarah K. White | 02 May, 2015 01:19

    Microsoft wants you to abandon your preconceived notions of a laptop and embrace the Surface as more than just a tablet. In fact, Microsoft wants you to ditch your cumbersome notebook and one-dimensional tablet -- presumably your iPad -- and replace them with one device: the Surface 3. But even with an adjustable kickstand and full Windows 8.1, can the Surface 3 compete with a traditional notebook, or tablet for that matter?

    By Melissa Riofrio | 23 April, 2015 00:32

  • Alcatel Onetouch Watch review: A cheap smartwatch with training wheels

    By Jon Phillips | 16 April, 2015 01:48

    The Alcatel Onetouch Watch isn't snazzy-beautiful, and it's not packed with features. But at only $150, it's one of the cheapest smartwatches you can buy--and that might seal the deal if you're merely smartwatch-curious instead of smartwatch-confirmed.

  • Moment Lenses review: These top-notch iPhone camera lenses are a traveler's dream

    By Emily Price | 07 April, 2015 00:56

  • Break me if you can: 4 rugged tablets put to the test

    By Brian Nadel | 03 March, 2015 22:35

    It's a cruel world out there for tablets: Every day, there's the possibility they will be dropped, knocked, spilled on or just shaken around. And that's just in a normal business day -- if you use your tablet outdoors, while traveling or in a work zone, the odds of a disaster go up precipitously.

  • Samsung Gear VR virtual reality headset

    By Elias Plastiras | 16 February, 2015 13:58

    Expectations around our Sydney office weren’t very high when we took possession of Samsung’s Gear VR headset. Even though we had a keen interest to see what Samsung's teaming with Oculus has come up with for this consumer offering of virtual reality, the consensus was that it would be perhaps be lame and not worth the effort. By the end of the second day, however, even the most cynical of our staff members were enthralled by some of the things they saw.

  • Microsoft Word for iOS review: This classic word processor shines on every device

    By Jeffery Battersby | 09 December, 2014 01:32

    A few months back, when Microsoft first released Word for iPad, there were wildly varying responses, from, "Who cares and who uses Word any more?" to "I've been waiting forever for this!" to "Wait, what? I have to pay to use this app?" But, no matter what camp you were in, there was one reality: Word for iPad was (and is) an excellent iOS word processor--an Office app for your iOS device that offers substantial document creation and editing tools, with an interface that's clutter-free, so creating and editing documents on your iPad is a cinch.
