Here comes HP’S SLATE 21 All-in-One Desktop PC Running on Android.

Is it a Tab? Is it a Desktop Machine?
Its HP’s Slate 21 All-In-One PC Running on Android.
HP Recently Launched its new 21.5 Inch computer running on Android Jellybean 4.2.2.
Slate 21 seems to be giving a tough competetion to Old Timers like Lenovo, Asus, Acer, with a price tag of $400, who already have their leg into the boat.
Here are some Jaw-Droping, Goose-Bumping, earth-shaking (I exaggerated a little bit over there) features of Slate 21:

1) Quad-core nVidia Tegra 4 platform (Take that Acer.).
2) 21.5 Inch screen (Hell yeah, now we can play temple run on it. Love you HP.)
3) Android 4.2.2, supports multiple users-up to 5 (Here we go fella’s).
4) 3 USB 2.0 ports (Hmm. 3.0 Would have been better, but who cares?)

The Samsung Ativ Q comes with Android and Windows 8 Dual Boot

And the products keep coming. The latest announcement is from Samsung about its new product in the ATIV range and its a hybrid in more ways than one.

ATIV - Q

ATIV – Q

Its called the ATIV Q and it combines Android 4.2 and Windows 8. Under the hood, the device is powered by a Haswell-series Intel Core i5 processor and manages to fit a 13.3-inch, 3200 x 1800 touchscreen into a 1.29kg package that measures just 13.9mm thick. Other notable specs include an S Pen with 1,024 degrees of sensitivity. There’s space for the stylus to be stored in the bottom corner of the device. Hardware considerations have also been folded into the design, with the processor housed inside the ATIV Q’s hinge. Samsung says that this ensures that heat dissipates from the back of the device.

The Q will let users hop into an unfettered, stock version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean without having to reboot their device. Users can also effectively transfer data between the two OSes — Samsung Europe marketing chief Patrick Povel noted that people could pin Android apps to the Windows 8 start screen. A tacit nod to the lack of Windows 8 apps, perhaps?

Apple back at it again with the new Mac Pro

Apple new Mac Pro design is a drastic  change from the previous versions. It is a design that has to be seen to be believed.  Its black aluminum cylinder and houses not one but two workstation graphics cards along with PCI Express flash storage, Thunderbolt 2, Xeon processors and 4k video output for up to three monitors at 4K resolution.

The most impressive part of the Mac Pro might be how much Apple’s engineers managed to cram into such a small package. There are not one, not two, but six Thunderbolt 2 outputs, which adds tons of external expandability, as well as two FireWire 800 ports, audio in and out, HDMI and Ethernet.

They claim that they know your inbox always fill ups with different types of emails like from social media, promotions from websites your are subscribed to, Updates from your softwares, etc. To fix this, the new layout introduces Tabs. There will be a Primary tab that will have all the important mails. Then there will be the other tabs with the not-so-important mails.

The new Gmail will be available for Desktop, Android and iOS very soon. If you’d like to try out the new inbox on Desktop sooner, keep an eye on the gear menu and select Configure inbox when it appears in the Settings options.
