We have a confession to make (well, several actually, but all the rest date back to our college days, and some secrets are best left untold). Reviewing monitors isn't as fun as it once was. It's not that we've grown jaded over the years, but plain and simple, the monitor market has become stale, lacking the kind of 'gee-whiz' innovations that tend to excite us. Panel makers seemed to stopped pushing the envelope once they developed 30-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) screens, and for the longest time, that's where the high-end has sector been stuck, as if caught in quicksand with no rope in sight,...

Ask any person who owns a dual-monitor setup and they'll all tell you they couldn't fathom going back to a single display. Maybe you're one of those people, and if so, you know exactly the feeling we're talking about. But what if you could enjoy all the benefits of a dual-monitor configuration from a single monitor? Would you be game to reclaiming some desk space by trading in two panels for a single display? AOC aims to answer that question with its new 29-inch Q2963PM display. Armed with an UltraWide In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, this LED-backlit monitor boasts a 2560x1080 resolution with 21:9... Read more...

Are you the sort of drinker who simply doesn't know when to stop? Sometimes, even the best of us can fall into the trap. When you're having a good time, the hours just fly by, and so do the drinks - only to catch up to you as soon as the fun stops and it's time for bed. You close your eyes, the room is spinning, and you swear that you're never going to drink again. Would you like to avoid situations like these? If so, then "Smart Ice Cubes" might be right up your alley. The creation of smart ice cubes began when MIT researcher Dhairya Dand blacked-out after a couple of drinks and woke up in the...

Remember when mobile hotspots were clunky little black boxes that just had one or two LED notification lights? Those days are gone.

A TechCruncher recently got a sneak peak at a new Kindle under development in Amazon’s labs, and although most of the device was apparently hidden under cardboard, the premier feature was exposed: a glowing screen. In late 2010, it seems, Amazon snapped up lighting technology company Oy Modilis and its many patents (and talent) and is working on integrating lighting to the Kindle’s screen. The lighting element will be inserted as a layer in the screen and use energy-efficient LEDs; the whole effect promises to be easier on the eyes than LCD screens used on tablets. New Kindle design...
