  • 360 degree hinged laptops, the HP Pavilion x360

    HP showed us a 360 degree convertible PC at MWC 2014, a hybrid which allows users to convert from laptop to tablet easily.

    Weighing just over 3 pounds, the laptop is equipped with an 11.6-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) SVA display, Intel Pentium processor and an HP TrueVision HD webcam. In addition, the hybrid computer -- aimed at Millennials -- sports up to 8GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.

    The top professional gift and gadget ideas this year [Gift Guide 2013]

    What gifts and gadgets make great gifts for the professional in your life this year?

    I own a Plantronics headset, and while the voice quality is not brilliant if receiving calls from abroad, for local use the headsets do have good range and stability. The new design includes smart sensors for answering calls through voice activation or placing the tech within your ear, noise cancellation, a portable charging case and an option of three different colors. 

    The Voyager Edge will be available from April.

  • Smartphone for seniors

    Why does everyone seem to assume that seniors are idiots? Who do they think did all the technical work that led to these devices? I am 71, and perfectly capable of using whatever smartphone I choose to buy. Not all seniors are Luddites, or non-technical. And if I wanted something that looks like a Vtech toy laptop, that's what I would BUY.

      Lighten up, guys. If you're reading ZDNet you're not their target audience.
    • Smartphones for Seniors?

      Just ignore the ignorance. These fuzzballs forget we BUILD these things from scratch. I'd like to see one of them design a circuit board and build one. During the last snow storm, guess who got stuck on the highway for 2 days? 20 somethings. Not me (I am 70)! I checked Waze and INRIX on my Note III and stayed home with a beautiful fireplace and my 100 Mbps connection.
    • It's OK - the article is broken anyway.....

  • Opera Max Data App

    This sounds awesome, my boyfriend has a kyocera hydro, it is a stupid version of a smartphone, it holds everything on its own RAM not on a SD card or cloud. He has like 10 apps on the phone and it leaves him about 25% available RAM. I told him to try it out, if it anywhere as good as it sounds I will be totally thrilled. I will make sure that some of our apps (Jolt, Couples Counseling and Chatting, Recipes by Ingredients...AB Mobile Apps) can be stored on it as well.
