Acer’s Swift laptops deliver performance and portability to fit any budget

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the events of the past several years, it’s that creativity and productivity can happen anywhere. No longer must makers, creators, and dreamers be tethered to an office or a kitchen table to do their best work.  And just as people shouldn’t be held back by where they work, they also shouldn’t be limited by their tools. Laptops have become essential to getting work done today, so whatever you do, you need a laptop that can keep up with you – and maybe even inspire…

Don’t expect to get an Amazon Kindle Scribe deal on Prime Day (or Black Friday)

The new Amazon Kindle Scribe is a massive shake-up for the retail giant’s line of ereaders, bringing the biggest screen and most storage we’ve ever seen for a Kindle, plus, for the first time, a stylus for note-taking. Interested fans, though, may be put off by the ereader’s hefty $339 / £329 starting price, which goes up even higher if you want more storage or the Premium Pen with more note-taking features.  When the Amazon Kindle Scribe was first announced, its release date wasn’t actually mentioned, but shortly after the…

Amazon Kindle Scribe is a modern twist on an old idea – and you might like it

A big-screen E Ink device equally at home with documents and books released by Amazon in the depths of an economic downturn, and it’s not the Kindle Scribe that Amazon unveiled on Wednesday during a massive smart product rollout. This was the Amazon Kindle DX, a 9.7-inch E Ink reader released in 2009. It wasn’t as svelte, light or bright as the 300ppi backlit Kindle Scribe. There wasn’t even a touch screen, rather it had a physical keyboard and nav buttons. The Kindle DX was thought to be the future…

New Amazon Kindle arrives with two massive upgrades

At the September Amazon launch event, the retail and home tech giant unveiled a major new addition to its Amazon Kindle family of ereaders, in what looks like the biggest shake-up of the line since the Kindle Keyboard. The Amazon Kindle Scribe is the first model in a new family of ereader, joining the standard Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis. It’s Amazon’s most premium Kindle yet, and brings a notable upgrade in screen size over the existing models – and it also introduces a brand-new feature to the range…

Our ranking of the best Amazon Kindles is going to get a massive shake-up soon, according to a leaker – there’s an Amazon product launch happening in a few hours, and a leaker says a brand-new family of Kindle is launching at it.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE leak makes me think it’ll be the best tablet this year

It makes sense that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 would get a budget ‘FE’ successor later in the year – it would follow tradition, after all – but the total lack of leaks about it made us completely forget about any prospect of a new cheap tablet from Samsung. However, a new leak does pique our interest for one big reason. The upcoming (and as yet undiscussed by leaks) tablet has been spotted in a benchmarking database, as noticed by Dutch site GalaxyClub. This listing hints toward the processing power…

The new iPad Pro 2022 might not be worth getting excited about

Apple recently held a big event where it launched the iPhone 14 line and new Apple Watches, including the Apple Watch Ultra, but there’s still more to come, with new iPad Pro 2022 models possibly set to headline an event in October. That said, we’re now hearing they might not get that much limelight. According to Mark Gurman – a journalist with a good track record for Apple information – in his latest Power On newsletter for Bloomberg, the company is more likely to announce the new iPad Pros via…

More Google Pixel Tablet details appear in the latest specs leak

Officially, we haven’t been given too many details on the Google Pixel Tablet yet, other than the fact that it exists and is coming in 2023. Unofficially, leaks are filling in some of the blanks when it comes to what we can expect from this slate. As reported by 91mobiles and Kuba Wojciechowski, the Pixel Tablet has apparently now entered its engineering validation test (EVT) phase, which means that it’s gone beyond the prototype stage and is now being tested internally. When it comes to specs, 128GB and 256GB storage…

I bought a refurbished iPad Pro – and likely won’t buy a new gadget again

I’ve made sure to champion second-hand products in my time at TechRadar; buying pre-loved gadgets is a great way to save money and the environment in one go. But since all the gadgets I use are review loans, I haven’t actually had to buy any tech for going on four years. However, since I’ll soon be leaving TechRadar, the situation is different. I’m now at a point where I have to begin buying my own tech again. I have to spend my own money on devices that I’ll own –…

New Amazon Kindle update will change the way you read ebooks, and TikTok’s to blame

If you don’t closely follow Amazon Kindle news – or spend too much time on BookTok, the reading-centric community on TikTok – you might not be aware of the ongoing ebook-return drama going on. But now it’s prompted Amazon to change the way it handles its digital books. A TikTok trend encouraged readers to quickly read, and then return, ebooks on their Kindle, with the automatic returns program netting them a full refund even if they’d read the whole of the book.  This didn’t hurt Amazon, as the readers were…
