  • Opinion: My PC doesn't see the new, second hard drive

    Elsullo2 installed a new, second hard drive into a desktop PC. But Windows doesn't see it.

  • Opinion: How to choose a mobile charger

    Happiness is a fully charged battery. Of course, if you travel regularly, you know just how quickly your phone, tablet, mobile hotspot, and other gear can run out of juice.

  • Opinion: Mega: Hands-on with the encrypted cloud storage service

    Get ready for Mega from the flamboyant Kim Dotcom. The Internet entrepreneur and accused digital outlaw recently launched Mega (short for Mega Encrypted Global Access), a new file storage and sharing service that features 50GB of free storage. Mega is just one component of what Dotcom and his team hope will be a suite of online encrypted services from Mega Ltd. including email, voice calling, instant messaging, and video streaming.

  • Opinion: Bugs & Fixes: Time Machine, AirPort Extreme drives, and multiple Macs

    Sometimes one plus one doesn't add up to two.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Bolt from the blue

    Apple may be about to strike down the current Thunderbolt display, the front of the Apple Store makes a better window than garage door, and Apple's lawyer is hitting the slopes. The remainders for Monday, January 14, 2013 are crashing, hard.

  • Opinion: Displair gives you a touchscreen out of thin air

    You can build more than you might expect with just a little bit of air flow and two microns of water. Like a virtual touchscreen display that appears out of nowhere. That's what Displair can boast anyway, with one of the more eye-catching demos I saw at CES 2013.

  • Opinion: No, you don't need new glasses, those are curved TVs

    No matter how many times you rub your eyes, those things won't look straight. These concave OLED beauties are easy on the eyes, but heavy on the wallet.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Places of interest

    It's a globetrotting sort of day: Rumors say Apple is turning on Apple TV tests in China, even as Oregon and New York battle out what may be Apple's first U.S. manufacturing facility. Elsewhere, Apple lays down roots in Texas and we get some quality Time with Tim Cook. The remainders for Wednesday, December 19, 2012 are going places.

  • Opinion: Automatically add files to Dropbox

    Reader Daniel Gilbert seeks to make better use of Dropbox. He writes:

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Measure once, cut and paste twice

    Microsoft and Apple are at each other's throats over money, so it must be a day that ends in 'y.' Elsewhere, Apple may be inching closer to a TV as one of its partners looks to lay down some acreage in the U.S. and Cupertino's latest product is at least a thirty footer. The remainders for Wednesday, December 12, 2012 are redundant and repetitive.

  • Opinion: Get a free 25GB Box account when you sign up for Hojoki

    Do you spend a lot of time hopping around between various Web-based productivity apps, like Basecamp, Dropbox, Google Calendar, and Twitter?

  • Opinion: Why can't 32-bit Windows access 4GB of RAM?

    32-bit processors and operating systems, in theory, can access up to 4GB of memory. So how come Qasim Zaib's PC, with 4GB installed, only sees 3GB?

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Rack 'em

    Samsung says it's not jacking up Apple's prices, a German board game company is whacking iOS apps for trademark violations, and Apple is packing stores into two new countries. The remainders for Wednesday, November 14, 2012 aren't lacking.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Paydirt

    Apple’s paying a big chunk of change to Samsung and the Swiss railway, but maybe it’s all a distraction from the main event: the iPhone 5S. The remainders for Monday, November 12, 2012 aren’t made of money.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Everybody was kung-fu fighting

    Apple may dip Intel chips, OS X 10.9 is waking up from a cat nap, and Amazon's taking home the bacon in Europe. The remainders for Tuesday, November 6, 2012 are fast as lightning.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: The world is flat

    Apple executive Eddy Cue gets a flattering write-up, Motorola gets a flat take-it-or-leave-it offer from Cupertino, and how to turn your older Mac's drives into a Fusion Drive in twenty-seven hours flat. The remainders for Wednesday, October 31, 2012 are flat broke.

  • Opinion: Ding, dong, Wintel witch is dead!

    Could it be that the Wintel duopoly of Microsoft’s Windows plus Intel’s processors, a partnership that had the personal-computer industry in a stranglehold through most of the past two decades, is dead?

  • Opinion: How to master Storage Spaces in Windows 8

    Windows 8 includes a ton of great new features that are easy to overlook amidst the sturm und drang over the Start screen. Meet Storage Spaces, a new Windows utility that allows you to connect multiple data storage devices (internal and external) that rely on different interfaces (SATA hard drives, USB flash drives, and Serial Attached SCSI drives, for example) to your PC and treat them as a single giant storehouse dubbed your “storage pool.”
