10-tablet

Before 2010, there were no touch-centric tablets, only laptops that had stylus-driven screens. Suddenly, when the iPad burst upon the scene and gave tablet makers permission to dream of a touch-oriented screen and apps that could be on a larger screen than a phone, the world changed. Tablets that vaguely resemble the iPad have come [...]

This is not a top of the line tablet, but it should be fine for basic internet browsing, reading, and music streaming. So why the [...]

Aside from my smartphone, my tablet is the device I use most. I use it to watch movies, read books, listen to music, make purchases, etc.; hardly a day goes by when I don't use my tablet. I often run into two problems when using my tablet. One, the volume isn't always sufficient for me [...]

Imagine turning your 60-inch flat screen TV into a full-fledged Windows 10 computer that you can use to surf, watch movies, play games and more. Sure you can connect your laptop or desktop to your large screen TV, but that's not a very elegant solution. The ARCHOS PC Stick is a computer not much bigger [...]

I love the Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 tablet that I bought earlier this year. I even took it with me on our last vacation to use instead of my Macbook Air. It worked pretty well except when I needed to type in a lot of text. For those times, I prefer an actual keyboard. [...]
