Engadget Expand is coming to New York City in November, and you're all invited

Earlier this year, about 2,000 of our closest friends in the San Francisco Bay Area came by and, together, we had ourselves a heck of a time. The first ever Expand was filled with a plethora of great gadgets, giveaways, electric cars, and speakers. Now, we're very happy to announce that Expand is coming to New York City on November 9th and 10th. And yes, of course you're invited.

Sony VAIO Duo 13 review: a much-improved take on the Windows 8 slider

When Sony's VAIO Duo 11 slider debuted late last year, its strong performance and crisp HD display weren't enough for us to overlook a flawed design and unimpressive battery life. The Duo 13, announced at Computex this past week, looks to be a formidable second attempt. With the VAIO Duo 13, Sony has completely revamped its slider design, and the result is a well-made machine with longer battery life and a more comfortable keyboard.

Apple WWDC 2013 liveblog!

Tomorrow's keynote at Apple's WWDC 2013 is sure to bring us a seventh version of iOS, but what else is anybody's guess. New laptops? Probably. An updated desktop operating system? Possibly. Whatever happens we'll be there liveblogging the whole thing, so be sure to bookmark the link above and return at 10:00am PT or your local time to get all your questions answered.

Washington Post: NSA, FBI tapping directly into servers of 9 leading internet companies

On the heels of this week's revelation that the NSA is bulk collecting call logs from Verizon Business customers, the Washington Post is reporting on another initiative code named PRISM. According to the report, it gives the FBI and NSA access to "audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs" from the central servers of Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL (parent company of Engadget), Skype, YouTube and Apple. Today, a mere three days after the initial report, defense contractor Edward Snowden has stepped forward admitting his responsibility regarding the leaks.
