iOS 7: Does user experience really need a reboot?

I've already railed against Apple's overhaul of iOS 7, with its jarring use of white and its over-reliance on textual Web motifs.

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m review

The EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well-made ultrabook with a particularly good keyboard and touchpad. We like the removable battery and optional battery slice, but would prefer a higher screen resolution across the range. Windows 8 fans will also note the absence of a touchscreen option.

Sweating the details - everywhere in the world

There are so many things about Windows Phone that are effortlessly delightful, from the clean layout to the proper font to the smooth animations to the only touchscreen keyboard I can actually type on. (Although, having tried both US and UK phones, I'm disappointed that the US keyboard is far better at autocorrection, particularly when I hit the 'b' key between two words instead of the space - a UK phone never corrects that, a US phone gets it right every time.

The MP180 is a viable pocket projector for mobile professionals thanks to its excellent image quality and useful onboard storage. However, other features such as the touchscreen and web access lack polish and seem gimmicky.

Acer Iconia Tab W500

The Iconia Tab W500 lacks CPU muscle, has limited internal storage and is unwieldy when paired with the optional keyboard dock. Acer's Ring overlay can be ignored if need be, but Windows 7 just isn't finger-friendly enough to function well in tablet format.
