A new generation of Windows tablets has arrived with the launch of the Microsoft Surface 2, their second generation tablet, and the Nokia Lumia 2520, Nokia's first ever tablet. With virtually identical functionality and OS software, it is the quality and performance of their displays that really differentiates the tablets. Microsoft's original Surface RT launched in October 2012 had a display similar to the older Apple iPad 2, with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels and a small Color Gamut with just 57% of the Standard Gamut needed for accurate color reproduction

S Apple was just awarded a patent for a "plenoptic" or light-field camera, much like the one that Lytro started selling a couple of years ago.

S Your iPhone could be getting some serious new capabilities soon, following the news that Apple has acquired the 3D-sensing technology company PrimeSense . This is the same Israeli company that built the original Microsoft Kinect sensor. But that doesn't mean Apple's planning an Xbox competitor anytime soon.

S Ever since Apple introduced reference designs and an API for iOS gaming controllers at WWDC , we've known some kind of officially sanctioned iOS hardware was on the way. The Moga Ace is the first we've gotten in our hot little hands on, and after playing with it for a few days, we can safely say that it's a blast. For some early testing, Moga supplied us with a loaner iPod Touch loaded with a few controller-ready games, including Dead Trigger 2 and Bastion

Last year's iPad mini was very nearly perfect in every way, except the one you needed it to be. Its display was porridge next to the bright retina cornucopia of its bigger iPad brother and its tiny tablet competitors. This year

When my friend Nate meets someone new and they hear he's a doctor, he dreads when they ask, "What kind?" Because when he says he's a dermatologist, they show him their moles. This isn't brick and mortar, it's glass and steel

It's hard to imagine that it's been only three years since the original iPad came out, since tablets were a part of our daily world. Sure there were tablet computers before, but there weren't tablets the way we know and use them today.

S In grade school you probably learned Newton’s apple story around the time you learned that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree , that people in Columbus’ time thought that the world was flat , or that the Pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving in America and invited the Native Americans to join them . Since literally none of the latter three stories here are true (follow the preceding links for full details), you probably have your doubts about whether Newton actually sat under an apple tree and had something of a “eureka” moment concerning gravity. It might surprise you to learn, then, that your teachers got one of these stories (partially) correct

As Apple was prepping the perfectly glitzy hue of the goldpagne iPhone 5S, the phone was being referred to as "the Kardashian phone" inside Apple according to NY Times reporter Nick Bilton . Yes, that would be the same Kardashian as notorious iPhone auteur Kim and her well manicured yet totally overexposed family. Which means yes, Apple was completely aware of how ridiculous the goldpagne iPhone was going to be.

If you sit at a desk with your laptop and don't use a laptop stand along with an external mouse and keyboard, you're really missing out on greatly improved ergonomics and probably less back and neck pain.

A few weeks ago we confirmed reports that the iPhone 5S motion sensors were embarrassingly off. Some enterprising devs have investigated the problem, and figured out that at its root, it's indeed a hardware design issue that Apple either overlooked or ignored.

The iPad 5 looks as though it’ll be taking its design cues from the little tablet that could, the iPad Mini, if the latest supply chain leak is to be believed. SW-Box has gotten its hands on what it claims is the latest Apple tablet shell, and it’s looking decidedly Mini-like.

The trajectory of the iPhone is, in most ways, the trajectory of Apple over the past decade. Insane ambition, untouchable dominance, the inevitable slowing of momentum. And now, reinvention, sort of.

Belkin's new YourType Bluetooth Wireless Keypad looks a lot like Apple's Magic Trackpad. But the only folks who might actually find it 'magical' are accountants, because Belkin trades gestures and multi-touch input for a set of numerical keys and extra shortcuts for navigating large documents. If you've been bemoaning the lack of these extra keys on Apple's shortened wireless keyboard, you probably won't be too happy about coughing up another $60 for Belkin's solution to the problem.

So it's come to this. We knew iOS 7 had some dumb and frustrating imperfections , but hadn't scoured every bit of it for flaws in the small details that Apple used to nail. Well, some industrious design head has given Apple's new OS a proper fisking, and put all the screwups on a Tumblr .

This might not be a video of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5c. It might not show that Apple's next flagship will look nearly identical to the iPhone 5. It might not reveal that the current black and white models will be joined by a gold—pardon, champagne version—when they are announced on Sept.
