Brace yourselves! :)
Earlier this week we took you 'under the hood' of the Sony a7R II, metaphorically. Now, thanks to our friends at iFixit, it's possible to take a literal look inside the a7R II. Ifixit took delivery of a production sample a7R II at around the same time as we did, but while we were out testing its AF system and checking to see how its sensor measures up, the hard-working crew at iFixit were busy taking it to pieces. Click through to see what they f...

Bring on 3D flash.
The most exciting thing about Samsung's 16TB hard drive? It’s just a hint of what’s coming next.

Gosh darn, I could use one of these.
 
The Dell Chromebook 13 was built for the workplace.

At $399 and up, this new laptop is aimed at the business world, and Dell wants it to be the first Chromebook to be widely adopted by web-centric workers who are already committed to using Google’s services. And for those kinds of users, there is plenty to like, like a high-security VPN program that Dell worked with Google to integrate into the software, or a virtual workspace software so that workers can still remotely access Windows.

I love my Dell Chromebook 11 and can't talk myself into buying a high priced Pixel no matter how much I want one. Dell's latest has my attention.
Until recently, Chromebooks were typically one of two types: extremely cheap with lots of sacrifices on features and design, or a beautifully made laptop that was far too expensive to justify the...

Dude, even the Chromebook 11 is a fantastic bit of kit. The way its put together is really solid.

Firmware; the final frontier of computer security.
The common wisdom is that Apple computers are more secure than PCs. It turns out this isn't true.

How Google has been using Software Defined Networking all along to make the Internet as we know it possible. Warning: not for the uninitiated or weak of mind, this one ;)
 
Pursuing Google’s mission of organizing the world’s information to make it universally accessible and useful takes an enormous amount of computing and storage. This week, at the ACM SIGCOMM conference (http://goo.gl/MzySsn), we presented Jupiter Rising: A Decade of Clos Topologies and Centralized Control in Google’s Datacenter Network (http://goo.gl/xeItvp),  a paper with the technical details on five generations of our in-house data center network architecture.

Head over to the Google Research blog to learn the story behind building and deploying five generations of datacenter network infrastructure, with our latest-generation Jupiter network improving capacity by more than 100x relative to our first generation network.

Technology in Korea keeps making me smile. My transport payments card has an NFC enabled app so I can check the balance on my phone.

Excellent modern, boutique coffee roaster and cafe. Just as you'd expect to find in more advanced coffee cultures, such as Australia. Good selection of specialty regional coffees roasted on site. Aside from suffering at the hands of Thai milk, they do a good job roasting and preparing high quality coffee here. Highly recommended.

Own a Triumph? Forget the others. Go to Oliver's. I ride an hour out of my way to get my Street Triple serviced at Oliver's. Why? Because they go the extra mile to look after me, every time. At the competing Triumph agents I'm lucky if they even return a call. These guys have better service, better prices and they seem to give a damn about what I think. They know their stuff and they listen. Honestly, it's a pleasure to recommend them.
