Microsoft may take aim at Chromebooks' dominance in schools with an inexpensive Surface and cloud-based Windows.
Microsoft's smash sandbox is expanding to more schools, and teachers claim real benefits.
On the Internet, "nobody knows you're a dog," as the old meme goes, and today, the same can increasingly be said of robots.

Reading books on computer displays may not be everyone's cup of tea, but Amazon Kindle for PC handles the basics of its job well.
Rosetta Stone is a comprehensive computer-based tutor for learning a foreign language. It expects no previous knowledge or experience in learning your target language, or even in languages in general, instead relying on a purely visual stimulus approach of discovering vocabulary and grammar - just the same as we all did when we learnt our mother tongue as infants.
The history of science is, of course, a fascinating one - lit up by discoveries, inventions and many a curious character. But much less is known about the geography of science, and so The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science & Technology Come Alive (O'Reilly, 2009) is a welcome addition to any tech-inclusive library.

SlovoEd 6 Deluxe for Windows from Paragon Software is a very handy dictionary for language translation.
Once you're shown how to do them, stretches and exercises -- apart from a little initial pain -- are really easy to do. Having the discipline to continue doing them on a daily basis is another thing altogether. This lack of motivation, or laziness -- call it what you will -- typically keeps your affected body part stiff or sore and your physio in a job.
Learning how to handle a vehicle is paramount to a young person's development as a driver, but knowing the road rules inside-out is also a must. And there's perhaps no better way to teach budding drivers the rules than by giving them an easy-to-use program that they can use either at school or in the privacy of their own home.
PostureMinder is software that acts as a posture conscious Jiminy Cricket that reminds you when you're sitting poorly at your PC.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
