Almost a year and half after its introduction, Thunderbolt is finally starting to live up to its promise thanks to new gadgets such as the Matrox DS1, a docking station which brings missing ports to MacBooks.
Apple rarely competes on low prices, but a new report claims that Cupertino may be planning an all-out pricing assault on the second generation of Ultrabook computers by introducing an even cheaper MacBook Air in Q3 2012.
While CES is the ultimate showcase for brand new technology and innovative gadgets, it can become redundant. Throughout the labyrinth of booths, there are a myriad of copycats, all trying to garner interest in "the next big thing". The fact of the matter is that many of these things are not the best things to come out of the show floor. Read on and I'll tell you why.

What should have been the company's CES swan song felt more like a rambling late night phone call from an old friend who just wants to talk about the way things used to be.

Hey hey, it’s Tuesday! Other than being the second day of the week, that doesn’t mean all that much, particularly for those looking forward to next week’s Thanksgiving holiday (at least here in the USA).

This year’s Computex trade show isn’t all about tablets, as Intel proved overnight with an update on its processor plans for the future. They include Ivy Bridge, a next-generation architecture that will power a new class of “no compromise” laptops that look strangely familiar to Apple MacBook Air fans.
