Research firm Gartner is out with some new numbers, and as you might have expected, there’s a clear trend that PC sales continue to decline. Sales of traditional (desktop and notebook) PCs will hit 303 million units in 2013, which is an 8.4% drop from 2012. The firm predicts that sales will continue to plummet... Read more...
Let’s not kid ourselves, the era of showing up to work at 8am, sitting at your desk all day, and leaving it all at the office at 5pm is over. Although that’s still the “standard” work paradigm, most workers find a sincere need for mobile productivity, whether that’s due to a long commute on the train in the morning... Read more...
The all-in-one desktop market certainly isn't as flush with new machines as it once was, and the desktop market as a whole has been slipping as notebooks and tablets begin to serve as the only computer one needs. That said, Acer has popped out a new one for consideration, the Z3-605. It's a fairly stylish rig, offering up a 23" Full HD display,... Read more...

Gaming PCs can come in all shapes and sizes, but I'm willing to bet that all-in-one isn't one of the first to come to mind. MSI would like to change that, and has built a great-looking model to help. It's called the "Wind Top AG2712", where the 27 represents the 27-inch display. With this machine, MSI claims the first gaming AIO at this size... Read more...
It's clear that where security's concerned, Google is on top of things. The company has no desire to be compromised, or have its users compromised, and so it's doing a variety of things to make sure incidents are kept to a minimum. Last fall, we learned of Google's app scanner utility - included in Android 4.2+ -... Read more...
Guess what? Mobile is overtaking desktop, and it's happening at a breakneck rate. In fact, some analysts are wondering if the generation born today will ever know a "computer" to be anything other than something held in one's palm, which probably sends chills down the spines of those who are still cranking out desktop towers. Gartner's latest... Read more...
The researchers at Erlangen University in Germany would like to offer some advice: don't put that Android 4.0+ phone in the freezer. It's been discovered that even on a phone with PIN security and encryption, data can be retrieved from the device via a cold boot attack - that is, the process of turning on the... Read more...
It isn't the most beautiful desktop, but it's also not designed to be a showpiece. Instead, the Lenovo ThinkCentre M78 is designed to be a business workhorse, engineered to serve medium and large businesses with an AMD A-series APU. It'll support up to 32GB of DDR3 memory, and it's available in a traditional tower or small form factor. You... Read more...

This isn't something for just any old, regular computer user, but if you're a "power user," you owe it to yourself to try your hand at using 16 displays at once. It's not easy to create your own in-house flight simulator, but you really can't do a stellar job without a serious amount of screen real estate. There's one... Read more...
Ixonos may not be a name you're familiar with, but if you love to hack Android, it's a name that you may be seeing more frequently in the coming months. At last week's Mobile World Congress event in Spain, the company was on hand in order to showcase a new Android solution that makes it more like a desktop OS. For years, Windows and Mac users...
