  •  Some geeks of my vintage have a nostalgic fondness for trackballs, but I never managed to form such an association.

The new trackball has some highlight features including… Read More

  •  Do you need a Linux machine about as big as a few quarters? Man, have I got something for you. It’s called the BeagleBoard PocketBeagle and it’s the smallest Linux computer you can buy for $25. I’m a huge fan of single-board computers for one simple reason: in my childhood, the technology that enables these things simply didn’t exist. Further, a little kit like this… Read More

  •  Shopping may be turning into an increasingly virtual experience, with people buying goods online and through apps, but there is no denying the power of a physical in-store experience — a lesson Microsoft is taking to heart.

The company needs a hit and the product announced earlier today is not a hit in the same… Read More

The Pixel 2 XL has leaked, however, with pictures of both a black and a white color option, and the Pixel 2 XL name is apparently going to be the official one, too, according to a new report from Droid Life. The smartphone looks like the original, but with a sleeker rear two-tone look, with what… Read More
