How did Acer make these convertible laptops so cheap?

Cheap Windows Tablet
Touchscreen convertible ultrabooks used to be the preserve of people with thousands of dollars to blow -- and hey, you can still spend three grand on a fancy Surface Book, if you really try. But for a little less than a tenth of that price, Acer will sell you something which, on the face of it, isn't all that different. The new Switch V10 and Switch One 10 are cute little 10-inch Windows convertibles that cost $250 and $200 respectively. They have some kind of magnetic hinge, so like the Surface Book, you can pull the screen off to use as a tablet, flip it around to use in "tent," or just do some old-fashioned laptop computing.

Acer Xplova X5 The latest version of the Acer-owned Xplova biking computer brings a few cool new tricks to the table. Chief among them, is the inclusion of the of a wide-screen on-board camera that offers up a little bit of GoPro-style recording to the table.

Samsung, LG, & others show off new devices at MWC ahead of Apple’s iPhone 5se event

MWC-2016

It’s Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona, which means most of Apple’s competitors are unveiling their upcoming smartphone lineups that will inevitably compete with Apple’s own 2016 lineup.

But while we usually have to wait until the fall for a new iPhone from Apple, this year is different in that Apple’s event planned for early next month will likely see it unveil the much anticipated iPhone 5se, a rare non-flagship and mid-year iPhone upgrade that will be a low to mid-tier smartphone competitor at pricing that will take over the current iPhone 5s lineup around $450 off contract. 

Among the announcements: Samsung has officially announced its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones — both with a similar premium metal and glass design as previous generations but with upgraded internals — while LG showed off its all-new metal modular design for its new flagship LG G5. Also on show this week is a new smartphone flagship from Acer that offers an impressive 1TB of hybrid local/cloud storage, HTC’s One X9, and a trio of Xperia X smartphones from Sony, two with high camera specs including predictive focus.

Apart from smartphones, VR is a big focus at the show this week with just about every big smartphone maker with a related product coming this year. Samsung is showing its Gear 360 consumer-friendly 360-degree camera coming later this year, Analogix has a new smartphone/tablet chip that allows staggering 4K @ 60fps output via USB-C for VR & big-screen use, and HTC announced a $799 Vive Consumer Edition. This is of course a space we’re watching closely as we hear more chatter about Apple’s possible behind the scenes work on VR products.

And Apple is also planning to introduce its iPad Air 3 next month, which will inevitably go up against the new tablets being announced at MWC this week from its Android competitors.

USB Type-C at CES 2016: hubs, displays, adapters & more for the 12-inch MacBook

USB-C-Accessories-CES-2016

With the new 12-inch MacBook sporting just a single USB Type-C port, an adapter to get back some USB ports and SD card slots will be necessary for a lot of users. With more and more devices adopting the standard, we’re seeing a lot of USB C accessories announced at CES 2016 this year, many of which are designed specifically with 12-inch MacBook users in mind. So, as we’ve already done for HomeKit and Apple Watch products, below we’re rounding up all of the USB Type-C products for MacBook announced at the show this week.

In addition to hubs, companies are also showing off new portable battery packs, cables, adapters, displays and more, all made possible thanks to USB-C and compatible with the new 12-inch MacBook. 

When Apple made the switch to USB C for charging and everything else with its new 12-inch MacBook, it decided not to include its MagSafe technology, the magnetic charging connector it’s long included on its laptops. But we kick things off with a product that aims to offer a similar experience for people that were disappointed with that omission.

The BreakSafe USB-C adapter from Griffin is a magnetic charging solution similar to Apple’s own MagSafe technology, but in the form a USB-C adapter:
