A who's who of early tech pioneers helped celebrate the 50th anniversary of Moore's Law ans speculate on its future...
What better place to celebrate Moore's Law than the Computer History Museum? In an all-day, all-star, event, valley pioneers looked back and looked forward and what the next 50 years might bring.

My take on how Moore's law came to be, and where we go from here, now that it is 50 years old.
For as long or longer than most of us can remember, progress in computing has been measured against Moore's Law, and we have benefited from the massive resulting explosion in devices and applications. With the law about to reach 50, doubts grow about how much longer it can go. But this might not mean a slowdown in progress.

Microsoft is betting big that it can put a dent in iOS & Android with Windows 10. Is it wishful thinking?
With Windows 10, Microsoft is doubling-down on its bet that it can become a player in mobile devices and get customers to use Windows everywhere, on everything.

Time to get the checkbook out and equip the garage with the latest in 3D printing tech!:-)
3D printers had their own area at CES 2015, and it was justified. We round up some of the best and most novel 3D printers introduced at the show.

Who has the right approach to hybrid computing? Microsoft, Apple, or Android tablet makers?
At a quick glance, Apple's new iPad Pro looks a lot like Microsoft's Surface Pro 3. Under the covers, they are very different. Which one has the right approach?

Another company that hopes to reinvent photography...
Light, the latest company that claims it can cram all the functionality of a DSLR into your pocket and eventually your phone, has more reasons than most to believe it can deliver.
