Windows Phone looks dead. Is desktop Windows next?
Microsoft’s OS could be become irrelevant for an entire generation as kids use Chromebooks and iPhones and completely ignore Windows devices.

My take on todays big event. Some innovation but also fair amount of playing catch-up. 
Google's big event had just as many hits (more open VR and Instant apps) as it did misses (creepy video chat).

My review of the 2016 MacBook. Think of it as a MacBook S. http://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/macbook

If you read one HTC Vive review, make it +Sherri L. Smith http://www.tomsguide.com/us/htc-vive,review-3513.html
The HTC Vive delivers an unrivaled virtual-reality experience with crisp graphics, accurate room tracking and intuitive touch-enabled controllers, but you'll need lots of space.

My #iPhone SE Review. The best small-screen phone is also the best iPhone bargain. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/iphone-se,review-3495.html
The iPhone SE packs a very fast processor and highly capable camera into a compact frame for an affordable price.

The End of Windows? It could be closer than you think. #io2016

There is an entire segment not covered in this article and that is - the millions of adults that are involved with Chrome OS / Chromium OS - that are more & more realizing how simple our lives become using them Vs Windows. I would be 100% non-Windows if I could solve a printing issue & a scanning issue. And your ' run full Windows desktop apps via virtualization software" might now solve those 2 problem areas. And then GOODBYE Windows. We have 2 Chromebooks & 1 Chromebox (soon to be 2 Chromeboxes).

Immersion is everything in VR, and StarVR has a leg up on the competition http://www.tomsguide.com/us/starvr-acer-headset-specs,news-22670.html
Acer's joint venture with StarVR isn't about taking Oculus head on. It's about creating a better VR experience for theme parks with a wider field of view.

The HTC 10 could get the award for most improved phone. But do you think it's too late?
The HTC 10 boasts much improved back and front cameras in a striking but hefty metal design.

Oculus should have waited to ship until a) they had the components they needed and b) the Touch controllers were ready. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/oculus-rift-delay,news-22505.html
Lots of Oculus Rift customers are getting their headsets late due to a component shortage, which is a hit to Oculus and Facebook and a win for the HTC Vive.

Galaxy S7 Edge battery life is one of best reasons to get it over the S7. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/galaxy-s7-battery-life,news-22424.html
Thanks to beefier batteries, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge last longer on a charge than the latest iPhones, though other phones run even longer.

Has Samsung finally created two iPhone killers? It looks like it, at least in the camera department. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/galaxy-s7-s7-edge,review-3403.html
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge offer a breakthrough dual-pixel camera that's brighter and faster than the iPhone's, plus an always-on display in a water-resistant design.
