Acer’s ultra-light Swift 7 is a formidable foe to Apple’s MacBook

The push to make the thinnest, lightest, most portable laptop is proving fruitful. Case in point: the Acer Swift 7.

According to Acer, the Swift 7 is the thinnest notebook PC in the world. When closed, it wouldn’t be impossible to mistake it for a tablet with a keyboard attached, only thinner. At least, that’s the case with my tried-and-true iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard Cover combo.

While there’s more to a laptop than its…

Apple’s MacBook Pro launch was lame — get used to it

Apple announced new computers Thursday, and they sure weren’t what everyone wanted.

The company will release three new versions of the MacBook Pro this year. They contain the requisite internal upgrades making them more powerful than last year’s units, but the most significant change is the addition of a slim touchscreen above the keyboard. We’re being pretty loose with our definition of “significant,” because this upgrade hardly revolutionizes the laptops. Apple doesn’t even include the…

With the Touch Bar, Apple has turned its back on touchscreen laptops

For a few years now, PC makers have been making laptops with touchscreens. Some can be folded into tablets, some not, but the trend has been prevalent enough for Microsoft to rethink its entire strategy circa Windows 7 and optimize its desktop OS to work in two different modes: desktop and tablet mode.

Opinions on how well that works vary; personally, I’ve never found it elegant enough for daily usage.

The iPhone has a hidden one-handed keyboard mode you can’t access

As iPhones have gotten bigger, typing with one hand has become nearly an impossible task, especially if you’ve got a Plus-sized iPhone.

Earlier this year, Google and Microsoft both released their own iPhone keyboards to make it easier to type with one hand. Google’s Gboard smushed the keyboard to one side and Microsoft’s Word Flow curved the keyboard into an arc for better reachability.

This E Ink keyboard is cool, but probably not coming to new Macs soon

With Apple’s Mac lineup looking old and dusty (almost all of them are due for refreshes), it’s no surprise startups are looking to drum up interest for their products and innovations with dubious rumor-spreading.

The questionable Reddit post (since deleted) involved a “smart magic keyboard” from Australian startup Sonder that uses E Ink to dynamically switch each key, allowing shortcuts to be mapped to individuals depending on what app is open. It could also be used to potentially configure…

Microsoft’s Surface ad uses creepy werecat singer to bash Apple

If biting snark doesn’t work, maybe creepy folksiness will. That’s the tact taken in Microsoft’s latest commercial extolling the virtues of the Surface Pro 4 while slamming Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air.

The entire spot is presided over by a straw hat-wearing singer, who breaks down the Surface’s superiority with elaborate Jonathan Coulton-style lyrics. We totally get the parts highlighting the Surface’s touchscreen, stylus option and detachable keyboard, but the cat transformation part…

Apple pushes iPad Pro as ‘computer’ in latest ad

Apple wants you to accept the new iPad Pro as a computer.

In the latest commercial for its more powerful 9.7-inch tablet, Apple positions the iPad Pro, with its optional Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, as a do-it-all productivity device, challenging the notion that it’s just a tablet.

The 30-second spot, entitled “What’s a Computer?,” skillfully illustrates how the trio of devices work together and some of the things you can do with them…
