Wacom introduces its (expensive) graphics tablets running Android and Windows 8. Developer Paul O’Brien figured out how to bridge the gap between the TouchWiz and Google Play Edition software on the Samsung Galaxy S4. And Asus continues to keep 10 inch laptops in the world.
Here’s a roundup of some of the most popular Liliputin stories from the past 7 days.
- Wacom introduces Cintiq Companion Android and Windows 8 tablets for graphic artists
For years Wacom has been making graphics tablets that you can connect to a PC for some seriously high-precision input. Now the company offers tablets that you can use without a separate PC at all. But they don’t come cheap. Prices start at $1499.

Google’s $35 Chromecast makes it easy to stream videos from Netflix or YouTube on your TV. But it can do much, much more. Fling is a 3rd-party app that lets you send any video from your PC to your Chromecast-connected TV.
- MoDaCo.SWITCH for the Galaxy S4 arrives, toggle TouchWiz and stock Android

- Asus VivoBook X102BA: 10 inch mini-laptop with AMD Temash
