Review: Incipio Feather Case for Lumia 920

Posted by on Dec 17, 2012 in Hardware, Reviews, Windows Phone | 0 comments

I recently switched to the Window Phone platform and purchased one of the new Nokia Lumia 920’s. The hardware is amazing and has a beautiful screen so I started looking for a case to use with it. Being that the 920 is brand new there really isn’t much of a selection of cases for it. The first quality case I found was from Incipio, and having previously purchased from them before I had no problem ordering the feather case from them.

Since the announcement of the Windows Surface tablets, the biggest question really has been what it is going to cost.  Today the Surface RT went live on the Microsoft Store for a price starting at $499 for a 32GB without a touch cover.  This puts it in the same price range as an iPad, but will that price sway consumers?  We’ll have to wait and see but so far the pre-orders are now sold out.

Dell Brings It With the XPS 13 Ultrabook

Posted by on Feb 28, 2012 in Hardware, PC | 0 comments

The recent surge of Ultrabooks is an absolutely great thing.  Not too long ago, if you wanted a thin and capable notebook then the MacBook Air was honestly your best bet.  I know many people who bought them specifically to run Windows just because the hardware is that great.  I have been drooling over the recent releases from Acer and Dell has just introduced the XPS 13 Ultrabook. “Weighing less than 3 pounds[ii], the XPS 13 Ultrabook cleverly fits leading-edge craftsmanship, high performance computing, and thoughtful design into what is one of the most compact 13-inch products in its class. With its stunning razor-thin bezel, the XPS 13 maintains a footprint similar to an 11-inch product and features bonded Corning® Gorilla® Glass for exceptional durability; a unique, cool-to-the-touch carbon fiber base; and full-size, backlit keyboard for utmost productivity. “...
