Which XPS is right for you?
We’ve pitted two of Dell’s Ultrabooks against each other in a five-round battle, comparing their design, screen, battery life, performance and value

Had both xps 13 and 15 (both 2016) and can't recommend any of the two. The xps 13 has a terrible auto contrast issue (on the matte full HD version) in which the display changes the contrast in relation to what's being shown on screen over a duration of a couple seconds. Very annoying. The xps 15 does not have that problem but it's screen (again the full HD version) is so slow that one can see a trail following the mouse cursor. Both devices are very good in other terms and I love the bezel. At this price point I think dell failed here majorly.

With a snappy keyboard, sharp screen and long battery life, the ThinkPad L460 is a great choice for small businesses or productivity-centric users.

Isn't anyone concerned about the animal cruelty in Pokemon Go, taking feral digital animals and trapping them in a tiny pretend ball? Let wild Pokemon run free! Or at least put them in a Poke Zoo where you can have people gawk at them in a plastic replica of their natural environment.

A woman just won $10,000 by suing Microsoft over her Windows 10 update. Scary, if you replace Microsoft with an independent app developer working out of his or her basement.
If users can sue software vendors over automatic updates, we'll all be paying the price.

Windows 10 Lawsuit Could Threaten Security, Innovation

No, but it might threaten Microsoft's hegemony, which has been stifling security and innovation for decades.

The average laptop theft costs a business $50,000 in lost data and productivity. Even as a consumer, your identity is at risk with all the personal info on your laptop. In other words: Laptop theft is about a lot more than the value of the hardware.
Literally chaining your laptop to your desk seems extreme, but it could be worth the hassle. Here are answers to five common questions about laptop locks.

The Precision crew did an extremely thorough inspection on the home my wife and I are buying. Owner Hank Jaworowski sent two different people who gave us a very-detailed report with pictures of everything in less than 24 hours, allowing us to move forward with our home purchase with confidence. Precision also has been great in offering free advice after the inspection was over and giving us a free book on how to deal with contractors. We were very satisfied with the thoroughness and quality of the inspection and the friendly, helpful advice we got from the inspectors. They gave us great peace of mind and I would recommend them to anyone buying a home on Long Island.
