Currently all of the Surface Book products can be ordered, but there are probably going to be delays in shipment due to high demand. On the other hand, if you are going to spec out the Surface Book with all the hardware options available, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny after all. The top model in the Surface Book offering is a machine featuring a Core

ASUS ROG GX700 Water-Cooled Gaming Laptop Revealed


The ASUS ROG GX700 is a beast posing as a laptop. It caters to the high-performance oriented gaming crowd more than it does to anyone else. It’s not an ultra portable machine, but it never intends to be one either. The GX700 displays a novelty in laptops; water cooling. While its portability is an issue compared to ultrabooks and similar machines available today, the sheer power of this particular laptop makes it irrelevant in most situations. The ASUS ROG GX700 water-cooled gaming laptop features an Intel Core i7-6820HK Skylake processor, an nVidia GeForce GTX 980 GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 memory and plenty of power

Report: Microsoft Shot Itself In The Leg With AT&T Only Lumia 950 Release

Currently the company has a low single-digit global market share, something they’ve been trying to ramp up lately. In regards to this, some may think that the company would be begging carriers to sell their newest addition. Unfortunately that’s not the path that the Redmond based giant took. The

After their launch event, Apple finally revealed availability and pricing for the all-new Apple iPhone 6S. While the device itself doesn’t bring a lot of new stuff, it clearly has a tight grip set on the mobile market. You do get the ‘optimized’ iOS9 upgrade (planned obsolescence), some minor styling changes and a more scratch resistant glass, improved aluminum case, changes to the front / rear camera and the way things are done on the phone.

Google Translate App makes the whole world smaller.

Couple of years ago, the world of mobile apps was shocked with the appearance of World Lens app, which detected words on live cameras. Even though the mobile phones at the time had quite limited camera capabilities, what World Lens showed to us was the future of translation. Naturally, revolutionary apps like that do not just disappear as Google proved by acquiring the app maker, Quest Visual. Given that World Lens for Google Glass was one of most impressive things I’ve personally used on Google’s first attempt at Augmented Reality, as you can see on video below: Now, over a year passed since the acquisition of
