It has been a while since Microsoft updated the Surface, so the sequel to the Surface 2 should be the Surface Pro 3. Yesterday, Microsoft had a big announcement with the Surface Pro 3. With every new version comes some new features. In the case of the Pro 3, it is larger at 12 inches. It also has a lot of pixels at 2,160 x 1,440, which is the highest resolution of all … [Read more...] about Microsoft unveils the Surface Pro 3

I don't know if you saw this coming, but Android has now surpassed Apple, at least in tablet form. A technology research firm known as Gartner has given a recent report saying that tablets for Android are 62 percent of the market share, and iOS iPads are now 36 percent. I personally think this is kind of funny, because a few years ago, Gartner predicted that Apple would … [Read more...] about Android tablets have now officially outsold Apple

Yes, that was my attempt at being contemporary, as I would like to talk about CES 2014. Yes, I know that was two weeks ago, but I'll probably talking about it all year. Chances are, a lot of these products were introduced at the convention, and I'll … [Read more...] about Commander 3D from flightdeck is glasses-free 3D
Now that CES 2014 is over and done with, I can get back to doing some of my favorite things: gadget reviews. Especially since a lot of gadgets that I will review were obtained at CES. One of them is the Dock Minimal Tablets, from OnanOff. I briefly stopped by their booth at CES, and they really have a lot of cool stuff. You can see how the Dock Minimal works in the … [Read more...] about OnanOff Dock Minimal for Tablets
Grippity Doo-Dah, Grippity Ay! My oh my, what a way to input your...okay, this intro isn't working. However, I like the Grippity, which is an Android tablet which stands out from all the other Android tablets out there. Considering all the other Android tablets out there, that is saying a lot. You see, the Grippity has double control thanks to a back control. The … [Read more...] about Grippity Android tablet allows double-sided control
Last night, Lenovo had a live YouTube broadcast with the one-and-only Ashton Kutcher to show off the new Yoga Tablet. Ashton hit the stage to say that he is apparently on Lenovo's team, and they even had a comedy sketch to show him at the company HQ. Yeah, it wasn't very funny, but who cares, let's talk about the Tablet! This is a step up from the IdeaPad Yoga 11S … [Read more...] about Lenovo announces their Yoga Tablet, with Ashton Kutcher
In case you thought that the iPad Air was the biggest announcement for tablets yesterday, that is only the half of it. Nokia actually unveiled a lot of interesting things just before the big Apple announcement, but they have been eclipsed by the big Apple.

Hopefully, you heard that Apple was making a big announcement today, which usually means that I am pretty busy today. Tim Cook himself took the stage and sure talked about how good it was with 81 percent of the market and 170 million sold. Eventually, they talked about the new iPads, with the initial billing of "thinner, lighter, and more powerful". This is the iPad … [Read more...] about Apple’s big announcements: The iPad Air and new iPad Mini!
While trying to establish my contacts before the holidays, I decided to check in at someone at RCA. As it turns out, RCA has been defunct for years, but the brand name is still being used. I missed this announcement at CES last January, and I find this odd, because I just registered for CES 2014 today. Coincidentally enough, RCA is planning on launching their RCA Mobile … [Read more...] about RCA Mobile TV Tablet
I've always like Jimmy Kimmel, and honestly think he is funnier than Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, but probably not Conan O'Brien. Jimmy was able to point out a terrible flaw with Fox News and their new technology. Apparently, Fox News has coated its newsroom with giant, 55-inch tablets. I have to admit, I would love it if I had a tablet that big. Yeah, it would be nice, and you … [Read more...] about Jimmy Kimmel’s comments reveal everything wrong with Fox News’ tech
I guess we really should have seen this one coming, as Amazon has just announced the latest version of the Kindle Fire. Okay, it was yesterday, but give me a break, they didn't post this by the time I was looking for stories for the day. Welcome to the age of the Kindle Fire HDX, which should last a year, I guess. Like the new iPhones, they come in two forms. In the … [Read more...] about Amazon announes the Kindle Fire HDX
I suppose that it comes as no shock that I am reporting on this particular tech development. I would say this is the biggest thing since the news of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The big M had their press event today, and here are the latest upgrades. It has USB 3.0, as well as a higher resolution screen of 1080p ClearType display. I have also heard that the battery life is … [Read more...] about Microsoft announces the Surface 2
Yeah, you can see that I feel very strongly about this particular issue, but if you have a workspace or any living quarters, you are going to run into an issue where a lot of people are going to charge their mobile devices all at once.

This particular easy-to-assemble device has six little walls … [Read more...] about The Griffin PowerDock 5 for five iPads, iPods, or iPhones, because dang it, we need this!
It seems like we live in an age where parents have tablets, and kids want to play on them more than adults want to work on them. Two weeks ago, Leap Frog unveiled the LeapPad Ultra, and it is a real trend to see tablets targeted for children. VTech, makers of a lot of educational electronic toys, have unveiled the InnoTab 3. It has a 4.3 inch touchscreen display, 2GB of … [Read more...] about VTech InnoTab 3, for kids!
