Laptops and tablets get all the attention, but for long-haul working and gaming, you want a monitor. 10-15″ screens are great for when you’re on the go, but when you’re home, you can settle into the true luxury you get from 27″+ screens, insanely high definitions, and a screen refresh rate that makes you the absolute envy of Spider Solitaire players everywhere. If that sounds good to you, then read on for Acer‘s updated gaming monitors, the Predator XB273U NX, Predator XB323QK NV, and the Nitro XV282K!

When smartphones hit critical mass, every manufacturer of “dumb” phones started leveraging all their designs to add smarts to every phone in their lineup. We’re seeing a similar push with smartwatches. Traditional watchmakers are finding ways to raise the intelligence level of their iconic designs. The latest watchmaker to do so is Citizen, with their C Z Smart line.
OnePlus and T-Mobile know a few things. they know how to make excellent smartphones, they know how to blanket the country in 5G, and they know everyone is crawling the walls because there’s nowhere to go in the middle of a pandemic. They can’t totally fix that third issue, but they’re trying with their new OnePlus Go Farther scavenger hunt!

Now processors much thinner, and they are giving our phones more power than some computers from 20 years ago! The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G Mobile Platform is the latest in the giant leaps forward that mobile technology is taking.
It is incredible how many aspects of our lives are integrated with AI and connectivity. It’s in little ways, like how CarPlay helpfully gives me directions to the same places I go each week, and in significant ways like how AI is being used for contact tracing and tracking COVID-19. All this requires solid hardware to back up all that software, and Qualcomm Cloud AI 100 Development Kit is designed to keep everything running quickly and smoothly.
