The HTC One (M8) ticks most of our boxes: design, build and performance are all excellent, there's no app overload, and HTC Sense is improving with every iteration. Battery life could be better and some of the camera tools may seem unnecessary, but overall it's a winner.
The latest beta release of the Chrome browser for Linux, Mac and Windows introduces support for voice commands, as well as improved support for responsive design for web developers.
Appurify Mobile Platform includes tools for addressing performance issues and flawed design early in the mobile development process, and offers data to address them.
The Latitude E7240 is solidly made and well connected, delivering impressive performance in a thoughtful design. It's let down by the keyboard and a lack of configuration options, turning what could have been a superb business ultrabook into merely a very good one.
Given its specification and performance, the Nexus 5 delivers great value for money — if you can live with its (few) drawbacks. The middling-quality camera and uninspiring chassis design don't worry us, but the lack of MicroSD card storage expansion and moderate battery life are more serious minus points.
The Haswell-based Surface Pro 2 delivers improved performance and battery life, and its dual-angle kickstand is also welcome. However, the Pro 2's unchanged chassis design feels bulkier and heavier than ever, and it becomes very expensive when fully accessorised.
If you need a transportable workstation with top-notch performance for demanding design, visualisation, analysis or content-creation work, Eurocom's Panther 5D delivers the goods — if you can stomach the price.
Today, Linux rules supercomputing. It wasn't always that way. Here's how Linux moved from being Linus Torvald's hobby operating system to being the OS of choice for high-performance computing.
The release of the latest Linux kernel paves the way for accelerated video playback on modern ATI Radeon cards, as well as additional support for SSD caching to augment performance of slower storage.
Eurocom's 15.6in. high-performance notebook gets the 4th-Generation Intel Core (Haswell) upgrade, and delivers the goods in terms of specification and speed. The design is uninspiring, though, and it's also bulky and heavy.
The Linux 3.9 kernel brings with it an SSD caching, improved performance for multi-threaded network server applications and a host of other features.
The Atom-based Latitude 10 is short on performance, but delivers excellent battery life — especially with the optional 4-cell battery. Although some aspects of the industrial design and build quality could be better, this is a decent business-class Windows 8 tablet.
The Core i5-based Surface Pro combines ultrabook components with a (chunky) 10.6in. tablet form factor to deliver decent performance and excellent build quality. However, a few design issues, missing features and, above all, disappointing battery life suggest you'd be wise to wait and see how this product develops.
Lots of sunlight, walls painted in happy colors, comfortable chairs: these elements make for nice classrooms. A new survey shows such design factors can influence a kid's performance, too.
Dell's business-class 23in. all-in-one desktop has a lot to recommend it, including unfussy design, solid construction, low power consumption and quiet operation. However, its graphics performance is moderate, the screen's viewing angles could be better and it's not cheap.
My Verizon LTE iPhone 5 arrived yesterday and the design and performance impressed me beyond what I saw after reading reviews -- and the $820 I spent was well worth it.
