Cube’s i7 Stylus is a Wacom-stylus powered Intel Core-M tablet

Wacom is perhaps the most well-known name when we’re talking touch panels; and it would be only natural for a Chinese brand to flaunt the affiliation with the brand, if it is the case.

Chinese tablet maker Cube today announced the Cube i7 Stylus tablet, which being very true to its name, comes with a stylus. The i7 Stylus also comes with an Intel Core-M series 5Y10c processor, and a healthy 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM.



Apple has done something rather special with the Apple Watch. No, it’s not the design, the tech, or even the choice of straps that makes it special. It’s that Apple has made the first piece of wearable tech that feels friendly and has a little bit of quirky character about it. Android Wear, the Pebble, and the many proprietary operating systems installed on other less well-known watches are workman-like and functional, but the Apple watch is fun. It’s not without its issues, but they’re not too bad, so far. The effort to learn the interface feels worth it to us.


The Apple MacBook Pro update for 2015 brought a brand new design and form factor, along with a number of impressive space-saving and power efficiency upgrades. The slimmed down unibody chassis is all metal, so it weighs only two pounds and can take a beating. The new logic board is the smallest ever built by Apple, with a fanless Intel Core M processor and blazing fast SSD, leaving the rest of the internal space open for a redesigned touchpad and batteries.


The term “car stereo” doesn’t adequately describe what’s in the dash of most new cars. Over the past few years, what once was a simple music-making machine has transformed into a full-blown infotainment console with enough power to fly the Starship Enterprise. Today, even modest factory-installed units come with touchscreens and Bluetooth, but if you make the jump to an aftermarket deck, it can double as a backup camera monitor, a speakerphone, a navigational tool, or even a movie screen.

It’s absolutely worth enduring some growing pains to experience CarPlay.


After years of eschewing larger screen sizes, Apple has finally submitted to peer pressure and released two significantly larger iPhones. The iPhone 6 may be the more petite of the two, but it’s still significantly bigger than the 4-inch iPhone 5S. How will iPhone users who’ve never even touched a phablet in their lives react to the iPhone 6 and how does it compare to the competition?
Here’s what we think based on our first impressions of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Please note that this is merely a first impressions piece, as we’ve only just gotten our hands on the new iPhone. We will update this post with a more in-depth review as soon as possible.


We haven't had a chance to fully test this product yet, but we've assembled this helpful overview of relevant information on it.
The Apple Watch Edition is a smartwatch built to deliver an intelligent, app-based experience while adopting many of the classic design elements of traditional watches. The screen is full-color and is equipped with taptic technology that not only senses how hard you’re pressing the screen, but also silently notifies you with a light buzz when you have a notification. The device requires an iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus to operate, but in exchange you get access to voice controls and info via Siri, and a complex breakdown of your motion and heart rate throughout the day. The watch itself is made from 18-Karat rose or yellow gold, with a sapphire crystal front on the display.



Google doesn’t shy away from a joke, and always make an appearance on April Fool’s Day. If you know where to look you will discover treats the company has hidden around the web. They have left many throughout the years, but only a few have stuck around.

Google Search

Google has the answers to any question you could possibly have, but sometimes the search engine itself likes to have a little fun.
Askew: When you search for the word “askew” or “tilt,” your window will do just that.

Barrel roll: If you ask Google to “do a barrel roll” your screen will do a 365 degree turn.
Bacon number: Kevin Bacon has done so much work in Hollywood that any actor can be connected to him in five steps or less through their work. Going through all the work every actor has done can be tedious, which is why Google took care of it for you. When you type in a celebrity’s name followed by “bacon number” you will see how connected that person is to the Footloose star.

Google Now could soon have more to show from Google+

Google has never been shy about using one of its services to promote another, and now it looks like Google Now is about to get a fresh injection of Google+. 9to5Google is reporting that a small set of users are seeing Google+ Stories show up in their Google Now card lists on Android.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Stories feature of Google’s social network — and there’s every reason to think you might be — they’re albums of pictures made automatically from your uploads based on time and location data. The theory is that you can dump a bunch of holiday snaps (for example) into Google+ and it will automatically produce a highlights reel for you.

Google plugs its Field Trip app into Google Now

You may not be aware of Google’s Field Trip app, the travel discovery tool that shows points of interest wherever you happen to be. The app has been around since 2012 and has just been rolled into Google Now’s functionality, though it looks to be staying as a standalone app as well. If you’re a Google Now user, it means more recommendations of places to see while you’re on the move.
The original app is available for both Android and iOS and promises to be “your guide to the cool, hidden, and unique things in the world around you.” It has earned positive reviews since its release but has a userbase of thousands rather than millions at the moment. Perhaps its new role in Google Now will encourage its developers to devote more time and focus to the project.

The app covers all kinds of venues and uses your phone’s location to check for nearby attractions. Everything from gigs and local restaurants to historical sites and notable architecture is covered — there are even a smattering of local deals available through the app. Of course, this all ties in very neatly with Google Now’s mission to give you the most relevant information at any particular time in any particular place.


Google Chrome in its purest form is a beast of a browser, but if you install the right extensions and give it extra functionality, you can transform it into even more of a beast — like a fire-breathing grizzly bear on steroids. Ever wanted to control a fire-breathing grizzly bear on steroids? You’ll have some idea what it’s like when you polish up your Chrome experience with the best Google Chrome extensions around.


Attempting teleportation with Google Jump panoramic VR videos

VR headsets like the Oculus Rift can drop you anywhere from the edge of a comic-book skyscraper to a dinosaur-infested swamp, but how do we capture real-life experiences for VR? The answer is easy enough: 360-degree 3D video.
Shooting video in every direction at once from multiple viewpoints is really, really tricky, however. The rigs to do it right cost enough to make even James Cameron think twice. But at Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco on Thursday, the company introduced Jump, a new solution that may make it possible for anyone to shoot 3D panoramic video in the near future. And we got to try out the engulfing results.
