In an event at Apple’s Cupertino campus on 16th October, the next generation iPad Air 2 specifications were revealed. At 6.1mm thin, the iPad Air 2 is the thinnest tablet device on the market, which Apple demonstrated with a video of a pencil being sliced with a laser. To get an idea of just how thin this is, the previous iPad Air measured 7.5mm. The width and height measure the same however, so from the front the two devices actually look pretty similar. Apple managed

The new Windows 10 has been adapted to work with both mouse controlled computers and touch screen tablets and smartphones, so that people can have the same operating experience on all their devices. It is thought that Microsoft decided to skip launching Windows 9 in an attempt to correct the flaws of the much maligned Windows 8. Joe Belfiore, corporate vice-president of operating systems, admitted that errors had been made in

Pictures have been posted on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, showing the product bent out of shape. Users accompanying their musings with the hashtags #bendgate and #bendghazi show their new device slightly bent after it has been in their back pockets for a while. The problem may be that the iPhone 6 Plus has a thin and large body, measuring 6.22-inch by 3.06-inch, but is

Internet Slowdown Day is a campaign to raise awareness for network neutrality, the idea that all web traffic should be treated the same. Currently some big telecommunications companies want to treat certain websites differently. This is so that they can then charge you more depending on what sites you visit. Think of it as a system of roads, where currently anyone can travel down the road and visit a destination at
