But not all 2-in-1s are built the same and, to be a true 2-in-1, there are certain criteria that have to be met. Just because you attach a Bluetooth keyboard to a tablet doesn’t make it a 2-in-1, just like adding racing wheels to your minivan doesn’t make it a Ferrari. The...

It’s not enough that gaming is about as technologically advanced as neuroscience these days (wait until you see what VR has in store for you, but more about that later), or that aspects of gaming are showing up in design, medical, and engineering classes (Frank Lloyd Wright would have been a huge Minecraft fan), but now, there’s an element that is sweeping the gaming world and adding another...

Last weekend marked a milestone for both gamers and movie fans alike: the return of Star Wars to the twitch-gaming category.

What did Microsoft have in store at its tech dog-and-pony show in New York? Nothing special—unless you consider the company’s first foray into a Microsoft-branded laptop special or a brand new Surface that showcases the new Skylake chips. Or a new smartwatch. And new phones.
