ASUS is taking another stab at its PadFone concept, which like the name sounds is a hybrid smartphone and tablet device.

Up until now, the only place you've been able to score an ASUS VivoTab Note 8 tablet is from the Microsoft Store, and that's provided it would be in stock (it is at the time of this writing). From here on out, availability should be a little easier to come by, as ASUS just let us know that its Windows 8.1 tablet is... Read more...

It's not too often that a vendor chooses to remain silent about vulnerabilities plaguing its product(s), and it's even rarer to remain silent when fixes are available. For those using N or AC-based ASUS routers, though, it's important to take note: A number of rather serious vulnerabilities might exist if your... Read more...
It appears that ASUS is bringing its mobile mojo to the gaming community with a handheld Android console that's similar to NVIDIA's Shield device. The "Gamebox," as ASUS is calling it, features an NVIDIA Tegra 4 System-on-Chip (SoC) flanked by 2GB of system RAM and 8GB of internal flash storage. Word of the console... Read more...

We've all got our heads in the so-called cloud these days, and if you want to go all-in, Google's Chrome OS is the go-to platform.

NVIDIAs G-SYNC technology keeps the output from a Kepler-based GPU in sync with a monitor regardless of framerates and irrespective of whether or not V-Sync is enabled; the result is a butter-smooth GPU-controlled display that essentially obviates fixed vertical refresh rates. (You can read a detailed primer on G-SYNC here.) There are Read more...
Mobile is red hot right now, and that includes the smartphone market. That doesn't figure to change this year, though it will be interesting to see if Intel can wrestle some market share away from ARM, which so far has dominated the landscape. One company that's willing to give Intel a shot is ASUS, which announced a... Read more...
As always, we're finding ASUS to be quite the busy body at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

ASUS is teasing us. The company posted a couple of teaser videos hinting at new products that it will unveil at CES 2014 in early January, and although the videos reveal very little, they do provide some telling hints. In the first video, the Statue of Liberty is holding up two fingers and ends up holding two tablets... Read more...
Google would be foolish not to release another Nexus 7 tablet in 2014, so let's go ahead and assume the Mountain View company will keep the good times rolling with yet another winning product sometime next year. That still gives us plenty to speculate about, such as whether or not ASUS will once again build the device for Google, and what... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, we talked about Dell's latest Ubuntu notebook, the XPS 13 "Developer Edition", also dubbed "Sputnik 3". This is the kind of notebook that most Linux fans would love to have; it packs in a fast Intel Core i7 dual-core, a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a crisp 1080p 13.3-inch display. As fantastic as...

The HTC One is a nice-looking phone (our review here), and it’s shown up in black, red, blue, and sexy silver, but now HTC’s flagship phone may be donning a more audacious gown. According to leaked photos from Sina Weibo (it’s behind a login screen), there may be a gold-colored HTC One in the works, as well. Yes, gold, just... Read more...
