Remember than 1366x768 was "good enough," even for flagship notebooks? No longer, and we couldn't be more pleased about the raised expectations.

The company has just announced some new advancements on the display front at SID 2013, including a Full HD (1920×1080) mobile AMOLED display... Read more...

Apple apparently recently switched to TSMC to fabricate its mobile device chips, and now according to the Korea Times, Samsung Display (a subsidiary of Samsung), has decided not to provide LCD displays to Apple any longer. The company line is that it’s no... Read more...
One of the questions that's been kicked around since Microsoft debuted Surface last summer is how much Redmond would charge for the systems. Rumors have ranged from the ridiculously low ($299) to $1200 or more. Microsoft briefly posted prices on its own store, and while the numbers and listings have been pulled, the price targets were extremely reasonable. They've also been confirmed by a handful of journalists who attended a Microsoft early briefing. The tablet version of Surface will debut at $499 for a 32GB tablet running Windows RT (that's the second-class ARM flavor). The Touch Cover keyboard... Read more...
