Tried the Alcatel One Touch Idol X at Bell. Specs are fine all around, but performance was trash for some reason. Plenty of RAM at 2 GB, but something couldn't keep up. Maybe it was a defective unit.

Spent some time looking at nice laptops over the last little while. Canadian laptop prices are up since late last year, partially also because of the loonie's performance against the American dollar. 

Also learned that Intel's ultrabook branding has nothing to limit the weight of a laptop, but only for physical dimensions. As long as a laptop is thin enough, it can be a brick and still be called an ultrabook. Right now the term is a bit of a mess... 

With Haswell, I cannot recommend AMD laptops at all. The CPU performance you get from AMD matches up with Bay Trail, which is rather pathetic. Haswell laptops are so cheap that there is really no reason at all to save the $20 for a hotter device that can't be used for as long.

Yet another core piece of Android going into closed source, it seems.

This is where Windows is at a huge disadvantage right now compared to other systems...

High dpi on Windows is so bad...I don't even...

On my retina mac, it's been perfect since it came out.

So, someone remind me why watches are worn on the outside instead of the inside again? Especially true for smartwatches, where you have to touch the screen to operate it.

Lock screen widgets disabled by default on the HTC One M8, just like the S5. This feature was doomed from the beginning.

Tray price of Intel Celeron 2955U: $107USD

Price of Acer Chromebook C720 refurbished: <$150USD

It's great for consumers to be in the market for Haswell with these low prices. Not sure who is eating up the lower margins.
