Chuwi Hi 9 Air Is A Budget Android Tablet Without Sacrificing Style

There are thousands of tablet makers out there and we know very well that we can’t (and never will) cover it all, but if there’s a deal or some announcement that we think it will benefit those with tight wallets, we are all for it. The Chuwi Hi 9 Air Android tablet is one such example. From Shenzhen-based tech company Chuwi, Hi 9 Air is the brand’s latest iteration of the Hi 9 line which, despite its less than stellar specs sheet, has a few tricks up its budget sleeve.

Microsoft Quietly Slips Two Sizes Of Surface Book 2 Into The Market

Sometimes I really don’t get what some consumer product makers are trying to achieve. They came up with a product that they obviously want to sell, yet, not only did they launch it quietly, but they deny the public of the marketing materials publicly available on places like, say, YouTube. The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is one such example. You see, prior to picking up the news, we saw a video put up on Microsoft Surface YouTube channel which I personally subscribed to. When trying to embed the video in my draft article, we noted the video “is unlisted” and was advised to “be considerate and think twice before sharing.” Obviously, I can just ignore it and go ahead and share it anyway, but I honor the words and thus, you won’t see embedded video of it in this post.

Google Pixel C 64GB Model Gets $100 Off On Google Store Till January 7

Here’s another ‘don’t say we didn’t tell you’ post and this time, it is the well-received, but pricey Google Pixel C tablet that’s getting a significant* discount. Google has taken $100 off the 64GB model’s original price on Google Store (online, obviously). As mentioned, the discount only applies to the 64GB model and after lopping off 100 bucks, the 64GB model is the same price as the 32GB (32GB is out-of-stock anyways), which kind of makes it a good deal. However, it is by no means cheap in Android tablet standards. Pixel C is premium device and it was never cheap with or without discount. It is just ’good deal’ with respect its original price.
