But I were to bet on a challenger, I might put my money on the smart new UE Boom. Not only is it ruggedized against drops [Read More...]

It’s called the Bluetooth Desktop Dock, the kind of straight-talking name an old-fashioned type like you will appreciate. You plug your USB keyboard and mouse into the appropriate holes, and then plug [Read More...]
Adobe made a slew of announcements at its MAX conference today, most notably the plans to make its Creative Suite (nowÂ Creative Cloud) entirely subscription based. Alongside all of the restructuring and price changes, Adobe also unveiled a new Bluetooth stylus designed to work with its iPad apps.
