    By Allan Swann | 23 May, 2014 15:15

    Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman has overseen a year of super growth, which he claims is due to a new Cloud management platform, a channel first distribution model and the stumbling of the big security players.

  • Minecraft's Notch revealed in behind-the-scenes tale

    By Elizabeth Heichler | 27 November, 2013 15:52

    The wildly popular game "Minecraft" is a lot like its creator, Markus "Notch" Persson: modest in style and origin and apparently still true to its roots despite phenomenal success. In their new book just published in the U.S., authors Daniel Goldberg and Linus Larsson go behind the scenes to tell the story of how their shy fellow Swede became the indie games industry's first real rock star.

    By Nermin Bajric | 22 May, 2013 12:39

    When HP first announced it was retrenching more than 25,000 staff worldwide and the depth of its financial problems, Nermin Bajric spoke exclusively to the HP PPS South Pacific vice-president, Robert Mesaros. Now, six months later, he and Mesaros met again to discuss what has happened at HP since.

    Harvey Norman started as a lone shopfront in the Western suburbs of Sydney. Now customers from as far afield as Northern Ireland and Slovenia can shop at its retail stores and super centres.

  • Hands-on: WordPress 4.0 adds useful features to a rich platform

  • Lenovo C260: This inexpensive all-in-one PC performs more like a tablet

    By Yardena Arar | 20 August, 2014 23:34

    The best all-in-one PCs bundle solid desktop features in a sleek display--no unsightly tower required. But because they include a display, they often cost a lot more than traditional desktops, a problem Lenovo seeks to address with its C260 all-in-one, a 19.5-incher which goes for $480 (Amazon was selling this model for $450 as of this writing).

  • Samsung Gear Live: It's the world's best smartwatch, but probably not for long

    By Jon Phillips | 15 July, 2014 05:25

    The Gear Live is the best smartwatch I've ever used--but that's not a remarkable achievement considering all the crappy-to-middling efforts we've seen from Samsung, Sony and Qualcomm. If I were being generous, I'd say Samsung finally landed on a simple, wrist-friendly interface that does away with messy nested menus and convoluted features like voice calling.

  • HP Pavilion x360 review: A mediocre hybrid laptop in a pretty red case

    By Michelle Mastin | 23 June, 2014 23:01

    As any bloviating tech pundit will tell you, tablets are poised to take over the mobile computing space. Meanwhile, back in the real world, few of us are willing to part with actual keyboards. Lenovo recognized this early and rolled out the Yoga. HP is the latest manufacturer to follow its lead with the Pavilion x360, a laptop with a hinge that allows its keyboard to fold all the way to the back of its display to become a chunky tablet.

  • MacBook Air: A little faster, a little slower, a little more affordable

    By James Galbraith | 06 May, 2014 23:54

    There's not much new about Apple's updated MacBook Air lineup. Fortunately, the Air was already a top-notch portable computer. The subtle increase in processor speeds, along with a respectable decrease in price, are obvious positive steps for consumers. And while the faster processor did help the new MacBook Air in our application tests, the flash storage didn't always perform as well as we've come to expect.
