There’s No Microsoft Surface Pro 5, It Is Just The New Surface Pro

There are so many laptop options out there that sometimes, we find it pointless to tell you that there’s another new one out there. But we heard there’s a new Microsoft Surface Pro and we also read that it is pretty dope in both performance and the look department. Anyways, if you are still expecting Surface Pro 5, well, don’t. It is not happening. Microsoft has removed the number and it is now just Microsoft Surface Pro. Marketed as the “most versatile laptop” (but it is more like a laptop/tablet hybrid, really), Microsoft said the new Surface Pro “has been redesigned from the inside out,” with the machine now boasting 50 percent more battery life than the 4 (up to 13.5 hours of use per charge) and 2.5 times faster than the 3.

Bold MacBook Pro 2018 Concept Has Huge Touch Keyboard/Pad Hybrid

Such a design is exactly what Seattle-based industrial design student Daniel Brunsteiner is driving with his MacBook Pro 2018 Concept. The concept is nothing less than audacious, but the possibility is very real and while regular users may not appreciate the huge touch canvas, creative professionals could benefit from it.

Microsoft New Surface Laptop Announced, Has Alcantara In The Mix

We love how Apple and later, Samsung and LG, made the gadget world more beautiful. Without them, we wouldn’t have expect Microsoft to pull the socks in the design department. The latest of Microsoft’s effort can be seen in the new Microsoft Surface Laptop. Sporting a clean, elegant design, this sleek portable computing device comes in four rich tone-on-tone combinations with the keyboard spruced up by Alcantara fabric. Yes. That Alcantara. The same type that you usually found in automobile seats and upholstery, but it does cover the keys, of course; it was the area surrounding the keyboard that gets this luxurious fabric.

Intel’s New Memory Is No Miracle Solution For Your Current Slow PC

So Intel has announced a new kind of memory that promised speed up your computer, particularly those who are still on traditionally HDD. When I first read the headline, I was elated and then I learn to take the excitement a notch down (or maybe even more). Why? This “magical new memory”, the Intel Optane Memory, won’t be a magic potion for your slow, aging computer. For it to deliver as promised, it has to be paired with a 7th-gen Intel core processor and to be honest, if you have that, I hardly doubt your computer will be any slower than mine aging 2008 iMac.

Flter: Blanket Privacy Coverage For All Your Networked Devices Made Easy

The moment you get onto the Internet, you can kiss privacy goodbye.

Most people are fine with this intrusion, but if you aren’t Flter is here to help. Flter is, btw, pronounced as ‘filter’ and intentionally spelt without an i.
