Lenovo Yoga Book: Australian Hands On

Lenovo’s Yoga Book is, hands down, the most interesting and innovative gadget that I got hands-on time with at the IFA 2016 trade show in Berlin this week, at an event where everything purports to be innovative.

Your smartphone’s big, beautiful touchscreen is an accident waiting to happen, but Corning continues its magnanimous efforts to improve the survival rate of your hardware, and its latest creation, Gorilla Glass 5, should help your phone survive even nastier tumbles.


Dell Just Killed One Of Its Best Products

Android tablets are mostly garbage, but the Dell Venue 8 7000 was a feat of engineering that even the most avid Apple fan would be loathe to put down. So it’s a major bummer that the Venue 8 and the rest of the Venue line up have been discontinued, effective immediately.

Another day, another Windows 10 hybrid tablet. But this one is notable for two reasons: it’s coming from Samsung, which isn’t known for its Windows machines, and Samsung has designed this device to be far more tablet than most hybrids on the market.
