Why Everyone Wants to Kill the Mouse and Keyboard

In the past 40 years, everything about our computers have changed. The screens. The guts. The size, weight, and materials. The software itself, of course. But one thing has stayed exactly the same, frozen in time from the early days: The tools we use to tell them what to do. So it's odd that we're so desperate to throw them out the window.

The First Internet Troll

Trolls are shitting all over our internet.

Microsoft Band Hands-On: An Activity Tracker That's Actually Smart

The new Microsoft Band is probably the most ambitious activity tracker I've ever seen: It jams 10 sensors into one slim wristable. But after strapping it on for the first time, I really feel that it's more than just another handsome little metrics bracelet; it's actually got the brains to tell me what to do with them.

Data for Your Watch Could Cost As Much As Data for Your Tablet

The Galaxy Gear S, another Samsung wearable among many, will be available in the U.S. on Nov. 7 and has distinct features that separate it from its other Gear siblings.
