Those inductive charging pads that juice up your phone without wires are pretty cool, but once you're already at home it's not such a big deal to simply plug it in. This new system from Intel takes that convenience on the road, by letting you charge the phone using the power stored in your laptop.
Rather than shove "me-too" MacBook Air clones down the throats of consumers, Intel's vying new form factors — hybrid ones — to give the Ultrabook a chance to really become a whole new category of mobile computing.
DigiTimes is at it again, but instead of talking up info on the next iPad or iPhone, it's reporting that Windows 8 tablets might cost somewhere between $600 and $900. If true, well, Windows 8 tablets could be screwed.
In case you were wondering what Intel was going to talk about at CES this year, its press conference was unambiguous, having been renamed the "Intel Ultrabook Press Conference." Okay then. And while most of their 2012 offerings look to be unsurprising, we did find a few potentially exciting gems.
At Intel's 2012 CES press conference, it showed off a prototype laptop with something you never knew you needed: a completely transparent ultrawide touchpad. What's the point? We'll show you.
Intel doesn't really make cell phones, but they made this one: it's a reference design built around their newest "Medfield" mobile chipset, and Intel wants manufacturers to steal this design and turn it into a phone you can buy.
Dual-cores, quad-cores, hexa-core and even octa-core processors are fairly common, but how many people can boast about their computer having over 50 cores packed tighter than sardines in a 22nm piece of silicon? You can if you're Intel.
Man, the talk of the PC town is all about Ultrabooks. This year's Ultrabooks already look like slick MacBook Air alternatives, but next year — with those 15-inch displays and 2,560x1,400 resolution screens — whoo, they're going to be absolutely amazing.
If you've bought a new Mac with Thunderbolt ports, the chances are good that you haven't had a chance to really use them yet. After all, the super-speedy transfer speeds require Thunderbolt devices, of which there are few. But already, new cables are about to make them even faster.
I park my car on the street every night here in New York City, so I'd love it if there was an easy way to know when somebody gets a little too close to my ride for comfort. Now Intel is developing an app that lets you check on your car using your smartphone.
