It's been a big week in mobile! Veronica's had some hands on time with the iPad mini and Microsoft Surface reviews are showing up in bulk (Here's our fave, from Harry McCracken). We'll have Sascha Segan back on soon to talk about the flood of new phones, too!
Convertible laptops are cool. We first saw Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 13 back at CES. We've got the final version of this 13 inch touchscreen Core i5 powered ultrabook in our hands.... and we love the hinged screen that flips over to turn it into a tablet. Are there any flaws in this .66 inch thin convertible laptop? Watch the video for the full review!
We usually have D-Toid's Max Scoville for gaming reviews, but Max is actually is a professionally trained Artist, and has some great observations about Samsung's Galaxy Note II, if it's really a good phone for artists, and what a phone with a 5.55 inch screen feels like to hold up next to your head. He even draws on it live!
Not a car expert, but dying to know what jeremy Clarkson's talking about on Top Gear... or your local mechanic? You'll love CarBibles.com, this week's "Website We Just Can't Get Enough of!" From engine oil to brakes, fuel economy to transmissions and car care, you'll find a ton of easy to digest information on cars and trucks, how they run and how you can get the most out of them!
You want to access your home computer when you're on the road. Or fix Dad's computer without flying back home. If you use the Chrome browser, you'll love Chrome Remote Desktop. It's a free remote access tool that works on any OS that Chrome runs on, and packs a bunch o' features.
Last week Patrick gave special emphasis on disaster tech preparedness in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. A bunch of you piped in with your own comments. Watch the video to hear from Seth, Chris, Mitch and Mark!
