Great review but... I got information from Dell online tchat and from commercial enterprise support that th XPS13 Kaby lake I7 tactile is not compatible (inteded to be) with Dell active stylus (not present in the accesories lol) Further more no advice on compatible styluses (Wacom Aes tech?) Asking more about the new XPS15 this very new one will be tactile but not 2 in 1 (strange !!) Moreover the support claim it will even not be tablet mode compatible (What the hell does it means?) No commercial or technical explanations... Can you please confirm if the tactile screens (XPS13 and 15) are capacitive or active?
When you write or draw, can your hand (without any protection) be put on the screen wihout interacting with the stylus tip?
Finally (and still don't know if it was a joke but for sure ridiculous), the support was recommending to go for a Surfacebook!! Do I dream?
Can you troublecheck this for the community as people may in all cases buy the wrong product?
If you have access to qualified Dell support ( I'm living for the moment in France) Can you clarify the XPS15 2017 for screen/stylus functionalities ?
I read that Dell signed an agreement with Wacom for AES technology ( like most of the other manufacturer) but the agreement is limited to a limited screen size ( in ordre to protect its own market) Have you heard anything about that ?
If you can post a video about stylus usage on you XPS13 2017 it will be FANTASTIC !

XPS15 2017 is not fanless of course. My key issue is about GTX 1050 heath dissipation and power consumption...Were you looking for an other task? ;) Thanks, Olivier

You have to admit that Snap's bot stores are a brilliant tactic. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/snap-spectacles-new-york-city,news-23885.html
The Spectacles from Snapchat just went on sale in New York City near the Apple Store, and the location will be open through New Year's Eve.

Why are iPhone's most exciting colors black and...black?


The Galaxy S7 will soon be available in a fetching coral blue, which was formerly exclusive to the Galaxy Note 7.

The iPhone 8 shouldn't come in 4.7 inches. Here's why. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/iphone-8-screen-size,news-23745.html
A new report claims that the iPhone 8 will come in 4.7 and 5.5 inches, but the small model would be too small in a world of bigger and better phones.

Dude. 
Two new reports of Galaxy S7 Edge fires are once again raising questions about Samsung's ability to make phones that are safe for consumers.

The Most Innovative Tech Company of 2016? It's not Apple,
Google or Samsung http://www.tomsguide.com/us/innovation-award-2016-lenovo,review-4101.html 
By reinventing both 2-in-1s with the Yoga Book and phones with the Phab 2 Pro and Moto Z, Lenovo out-innovated the competition this year.

11 Worst Tech Fails 2016 http://www.tomsguide.com/us/pictures-story/967-worst-tech-fails.html Some real stinkers on this list and a couple that may surprise you.
From the Note 7 going down in flames and drones falling out the sky, to the biggest data breach ever, 2016 was a year many tech companies will want to forget.

I'd recommend the iPhone 7 Plus over the iPhone 7 for these reasons. Check out Portrait mode camera especially. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/pictures-story/923-iphone-7-plus-beats-iphone-7.html
While the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a lot of great features in common, the Plus pulls ahead with its camera and other unique perks.

The new MacBook Pro has a great display, sound and battery life but the lack of 7th gen power prevents it from being and Editors Choice pick. 
The new MacBook Pro is an excellent ultraportable with a brighter display, more compact design, and superb battery life, but it's not the fastest.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 could offer robust artificial intelligence features in addition to improved cameras and a streamlined design.
