Perhaps unwilling to tread the same path that search giant Google has walked with Android tablets, Microsoft held an event on Monday to show off a pair of its own Surface tablets, available in Windows RT consumer and Windows 8 Pro editions. When can you actually buy one? Beats us.
Both AT&T and Verizon Wireless have been teasing shared data plans for months, but it looks like Big Red has beaten Ma Bell to the punch, today announcing its new “Share Everything” plans which allow data sharing between up to 10 devices.
If you’ve ever hit the road with your iPad, then slipped on your polarized sunglasses to kick back and take in some reading, you’ve no doubt discovered a dirty little secret about gadgets -- but one expert says it doesn’t have to be that way.
Of course, we at Mac|Life know full well that the iPad is in a class by itself, but after two years and three revisions, we figured at least one of its competitors would have stepped up to challenge its throne by now. So after reading the umpteenth report of market domination by Apple's mighty tablet, we got to thinking: What it is that the iPad's biggest competitors can't seem to get right?
Granted, there aren't too many criticisms about the new iPad; but then again, there aren't many complaints about the iPhone, either, and Apple's been fighting off formidable Android challengers for years. Among the dozens of failed attempts, there are five major things that each would-be iPad killer has gotten critically wrong (and that's with giving them all a pass on the retina screen).
The start of 2012 was absolutely dominated by the new iPad. Rumours, leaks, announcements, reviews--the iPad 3 fed and watered tech and mainstream media writers and readers alike for months.

What do you get if you combine a review of the world's first £7000 glasses-free 3D, 4K TV with a review of the best real-world LCD TV we've ever tested?

It's been a cracking week for TV enthusiasts, and it doesn't end there either. Toshiba continues to amaze us with its 2012 products offering great performance at unbelievable prices, and we've also seen a great TV from Panasonic and the awesome new Android tablet from Asus. Boom!
The chocolate fest is over for another year, and we've been working off our Easter paunches with some hardcore product testing.
It's been a great week, too. Nothing pleases more than when we get to review genuinely excellent products, and this week it's been Panasonic's excellent new 32-inch TV and the latest HTC smartphone that have been impressing us the most.
The new iPad’s finally here, but for some reason you want a different tablet. Maybe you prefer the feeling of an inferior build quality in your hands, or love navigating a fragmented mobile OS and app ecosystem. We kid, we kid! As much as we love the iPad, we’re not here to judge you: Apple’s not the only company out there that offers a bit of the old tap-and-swipe, and if you feel the need to wander away from Cupertino, so be it. To help you on your way, we’ve put together a list of four iPad alternatives that’'' help you stay productive, play and stay in touch everywhere you go.
