Last year's Windows 8 launch was accompanied by a slew of new Ultrabooks, tablets, and hybrid convertibles. Out of that bunch, one of the most interesting has been Lenovo's series of Yoga PCs.

Can technology help them to know whether it's best to leave a player in the game or send him to the showers?

As part of a broader Surface on the Sidelines initiative, the X2 app is one of the best examples we've seen of how a professional-focused PC like the Surface Pro could potentially be used to actually change the way people work.  Read More

Software being developed at ETH Zurich isolates the foreground image and tilts the face to...

Skype has been around for ten years now. Once a science fiction dream, the video calling service has 300 million users making two billion minutes of video calls a day.
