Windows 8

Windows 8.1 has well and truly arrived in the budget tablet space, with prices starting as...

Windows 8.1’s tile UI makes it better suited to touchscreen input than other desktop operating systems, and by now we’re used to seeing hybrid systems, like Microsoft’s own Surface 3 Pro, that offer both tablet and notebook functionality. Over the last six months we’ve seen the OS expand into a new category – the budget tablet. These devices combine functionality and low prices, and can serve as alternatives to the wealth of wallet-friendly Android tablets available this Christmas.  Read More

Microsoft unveiled its latest version of Windows 8.1 at its developer's conference

Who would have thought that a button would have meant so much to so many people? On Wednesday at its developers conference, Microsoft announced that after bringing back the Start button, it’s now rolling out a package of new features for Windows 8.1 Update and Windows Phone 8.1. Based on customer feedback, it’s part of an effort to make 8.1 feel more like older versions of Windows by stepping away from the touchscreen, cloud-centric version of Windows 8 that proved less than a hit with consumers.  Read More

Windows 8.1 Update 1 will be released in a couple of months and here's what you can expect

Whether you love it or hate it, Windows 8 keeps moving forward. Windows 8.1 added a lot of features and interface improvements to the first iteration. Now another improvement is coming, which Microsoft is calling Windows 8.1 Update 1. It's like a service pack that improves security and stability under the hood. But what's most notable is how it makes the Start screen and modern interface easier to use with keyboard and mouse on traditional computers.  Read More

Gizmag met up with Tobii at CES 2014 to see first-hand how the company's eye-tracking tech...

We've been following the development of Tobii's impressive eye-tracking technology for several years now, but it looks like consumers may actually get a chance to try it out for themselves in the not too distant future. Thanks to a partnership with SteelSeries, an eye tracker specifically for gamers is set to hit the market later this year, but that still leaves the question of what the technology can actually bring to video games. Fortunately, we were able to catch up with Tobii CEO Henrik Eskilsson on the CES show floor and try it out for ourselves.  Read More
