Tesmo wants to give your laptop a little lift

Seems like ergonomics were all the rage. We had wrist wrists, mouse pads with gel built in, and all manner of things. For our keyboards, along with the split design, we’ve long had the ability to flip out little legs to adjust the typing angle.

The Turing Tumble – a marble-powered computer game

Yes, that’s right – a marble-powered computer game. But not in the sense that you’re thinking, whatsoever.

Microsoft is having a Labor Day sale and the Surface Book 2 is $500 off

One of my favorite laptops, the Surface Book 2, is $500 off in today’s Microsoft Labor Day sale. The Surface Book is pretty much the epitome of Windows 10 hardware just as the Pixel is probably the best Android phone. As a Mac user I never thought I’d say this but devices like the Surface “just work.”

Unfortunately the gateway drug of Surface devices, the Go, isn’t on sale but at $399 you can give the platform a try without breaking the bank. If you plan on using it as a daily driver, however, I’d get the faster one with more memory for $549.

Anyway, back to the BBQ.

If you want to go full-on and do some work, your options are a fewer. Sure, you could get a Chromebook, or get a keyboard for your tablet, but a Windows-based experience? That’s where the Pocket PC – now funding on Indiegogo – comes in.
