MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC Mini-ITX Skylake Motherboard: Australian Review

If you’ve held off on building a new PC for a couple of years, then the computing world has well and truly passed you by. Things have changed. No longer is gaming the exclusive domain of big, Extended ATX PC cases with equally massive motherboards and two or three graphics cards in SLI. In 2016, your gaming PC genuinely can be the same one that sits in the corner of your living room.

Microsoft: Windows 10 To Be The Only Supported OS On Modern CPUs

It’s been a long time since we’ve had to worry about CPU / OS incompatibilities. In fact, the last time it was an issue was the shift from x86 to x64, but that was largely transparent to consumers thanks to AMD and its x86-64 specification, which was later adopted by Intel.

Watch The Biggest Ever Drone Swarm Take To The Sky In Style

Video: Take 100 drones. Strap lights to them and launch them into the air. Control them with a single piece of software and have an orchestra play Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in the background. Voila: you have a world record and a spectacular light show to boot.


It Looks Like Intel Made A PC-On-A-Stick That Doesn't Suck

One year ago, Intel’s $US150 ($214) Windows PC dongle launched amid much happiness and optimism about easy living-room computing. Then we tried it, and it sucked. But with new years come new processors, and possibly a gadget you might want to buy.


Segway's Personal Robot Is A Glimpse Of The Actual Future

Intel’s RealSense depth-sensing cameras are, like a good cheese, finally mature enough to be sold and consumed and enjoyed. At CES there are webcams, there are phones and laptops all with RealSense.

But the most exciting (and possibly-most-dangerous-to-our-species) application we’re seeing so far is in new drones — which will sense your presence, follow you, and chase you. If you want them to. Hopefully.
