Chromebooks have lowered the price of admission for owning a laptop. Though many Chromebook owners are content to funnel all of their personal computing through a web browser, not everyone wants to sacrifice the native apps that platforms like Windows and Mac OS X can provide. The Chrome OS platform, however, just took another step forward in becoming a viable desktop alternative, with the addition of new browser apps that, well, no longer look the part.  Read More

Press and certain members of the public have attended special events to try Glass

When will regular consumers be able to purchase Google Glass? Ever since the augmented reality headgear was unveiled in 2012, we've been hearing Glass will be available to the general public in 2014 ... or maybe in late 2013 ... but probably not until 2014. So which is it? Time to set the record straight.  Read More

Though the budget seven-inch tablet may have been pioneered by Barnes & Noble, there's no question that the two dominant players in that field today are the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. The 2013 version of the Nexus 7 is still hot off the press, while Amazon's 2012 Kindle Fire HD is nearing the end of its initial run. While the two are still going head-to-head, why not see how their specs and features compare?  Read More

Barnes & Noble did a bit of flip-flopping today, saying it will continue making tablets li...

Amazon gets a lot of credit for starting the budget tablet craze with the original Kindle Fire. But it was actually Barnes & Noble that released the first subsidized, affordable, 7-inch slate, in the form of 2010's Nook Color. The three generations of B&N's Nook tablets may have been limited by their software, but they also delivered solid hardware and good overall bang for your buck. So we weren't complaining today, when B&N announced that it won't be discontinuing its color Nook tablets after all.  Read More

The Moto X can easily become part of the family

It's been a full two weeks since I got Motorola's Moto X home with me and integrated into my daily life. The first few days of my interactions with the 4G smartphone coming to AT&T next week (with other carriers to follow) were covered in my initial Moto X review for Gizmag. Now it's time to share some deeper reflections on this much-hyped device and cover some of the ground that didn't make it into the review.  Read More

One of the suggested design themes for the Moto X

Earlier this month, Motorola introduced the Moto X, the company's first smartphone designed and delivered as a Google subsidiary (see my full Moto X review here). From the beginning of its marketing push for the new phone in July, Motorola has touted the Moto X as the first customizable smartphone. This week, Gizmag was given special access to create our own Moto X through the beta version of Moto Maker, Motorola's online software that will allow consumers to order, design and customize their own look for the phone.  Read More
