Intel has roared back into action with its latest SSD launch, the 545s, which provides the consumer space with an affordable yet fast package, ticking all the right boxes in the process. At $180 for the 512GB model, this newest creation is a notably better bet than the Samsung SSDs that have been topping the...

So I have spent some time with a Surface Pro 3 and thought a review would make some sense. As people who have read this blog for a while know, I reviewed the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 in the past and was intrigued but less than impressed. Those devices seemed like they fell just a little short of what was...

There’s a row of four physical buttons, which line the bottom...

There are tons of new features in Windows Server 8. So many that PCMag created a long list of some of the best features and it still didn’t include all of them. Windows Server 8 is one of the biggest changes to the entire Windows Server operating system since NT 4.0 got upgraded to Windows Server 2000. The...

It’s been pretty amusing reading people’s expectations about the BUILD conference and Windows 8. There have been articles expecting this feature or that feature or that promise or that leak… I (as usual) have a contrarian view.
