QLED is finally available in a glass display with the HP Pavilion 27

HP today announced the Pavilion 27 and it looks spectacular. This is the first display that offers a QLED screen — HP calls it by it’s official name Quantum Dot — that’s on glass instead of film.

The iPad finally gets a dedicated port for connectivity, as you’d find on a “desktop” computer – and it’s loaded with potential uses, from power to music gear.

But it doesn’t actually describe what the port can do as far as capabilities. So initially, Apple’s reference to the “USB-C” port on the latest iPad Pro generation was pretty vague. Since then,...

The most sensible professional VR headset ever designed

The future in which we’re perpetually strapped to AR or VR headsets is a distant, dystopic one. At most, we’d use a VR headset for 2-3 hours of work or gaming, in conjunction with our desktop PC.

It sits in its dock, right beside your desktop, and plugs to your head when you need.Short and fragmented VR experiences are much more likely in the present and the near future, says designer YuHsun Chung.
