When Android Wear was announced back in March, we asked our readers in a poll which of the first two launch devices they wanted: the Moto 360 or the LG G Watch. The Moto 360 won hands down, by a three-to-one ratio. That anticipation only increased as competing Android Wear products hit the market

Routers are one of those devices you probably don't think about very much. As long as it gets you online and gives you the content you need, there's no reason to.

It's never easy playing second fiddle, but AMD is trying their best to keep Intel on their toes with its latest line of Trinity desktop chips. We were introduced to the Trinity last week, but now the official reviews are in from the usual specialist sites. The consensus seems to be that it provide

Let's be honest here: there hasn't been an overly compelling option in the all-in-one PC space in a really, really long time.
