With all the new product introductions, the 17″ Razer Blade hasn’t seen much love lately, until now. According to a recent announcement, Razer announced a complete redesign of the 17″ Razer Blade which will now be called the 17″ Razer Blade Pro. Although [...]
After being rumored for quite some time, Apple has recently sent out invites for an upcoming special event set to go down on October 27 at 10AM PST. As usual for Apple, the invite itself is cryptically titled “hello again” which appears to be a reference to the original Mac which launched with the word “hello” on its screen.
Apple is expected to reveal an entire host of new Mac products as a lack of innovation in the area has caused Apple PC shipment declines of over 13% in 3Q2016. Chief among the expected new products is a complete redesign of the 13.3″ and 15.3″ MacBook Pro which hasn’t seen changes in over 4 [...]
Some keen eyes over at SamMobile recently spotted an upcoming Samsung Chromebook dubbed the Samsung Chromebook Pro on Samsung’s Korean website.

Lenovo seems to be feeling pretty good about this holiday season as a recent report from DigiTimes reports that they’re raising 5 months of inventory to prepare for the holiday season. While it’s not unusual for computer companies to begin increasing inventory to prepare for holiday sales, having this much inventory is a bit odd. If things don’t turn out according to plan, it may leave Lenovo sitting on three months of inventory.
As such, this may be a sign that Lenovo will be very aggressive with their sales strategy during the holidays. Last year, Lenovo had quite a successful second half with a similar strategy where they ran buy one [...]

Case in point. A viral video has been circulating on the interwebs of a guy who literally walked into an Apple store in Dijon, France and started smashing every iPhone he could came across. Every. Single. One. Like a freaking boss. We counted at least 12 iPhones smashed in addition to a MacBook of some sort.
The reason for this assault? Apparently Apple refused to offer him a refund and he claims that Apple has violated his rights as a consumer. Violence solves everything, right kids?
What do you think? Let us know [...]
