Pour one out for Windows 10 Mobile as it reaches end of support

Microsoft’s next smartphone is expected to ship next year, and when it does, the Microsoft Surface Duo will be running Google’s Android operating system. That’s a shift from the company’s earlier strategy — Microsoft used to make its own smartphone operating systems. But over the past decade the market share for Windows phones has diminished […]

LattePanda Delta single-board PC with Intel Gemini Lake now available for $188 and up ($228 with Windows 10)

LattePanda’s single-board computers fit loosely into the same category as Raspberry Pi’s tiny PCs aimed at educators, students, makers, and other enthusiasts. But LattePanda’s mini PCs pack a lot more horsepower and app compatibility than most single-board computers. That’s because they feature Intel x86 processors rather than ARM chips. But that hardware comes at a […]

Over the past few months we’ve seen developers port Windows 10 to run on smartphones and Raspberry Pi computers. So what’s next? The Nintendo Switch, apparently. Over the weekend, Ben Imbushuo posted a couple of pictures to Twitter showing the progress he’s made getting Microsoft’s desktop operating system to run on Nintendo’s hybrid handheld/living room […]

This DIY Computer Mouse is a computer… in a mouse

Folks have been shoving Raspberry Pi mini computers into small spaces for years, creating DIY handheld PCs, computers-in-keyboards, and more. But Electronic Grenade’s Computer Mouse is one of the most useless/cool projects I’ve seen. He put a Raspberry Pi Zero W inside a mouse… and then added a tiny display, keyboard and battery. The Computer […]

Khadas Edge is a hacker-friendly single-board PC… and ecosystem (crowdfunding)

The single-board computer space has sort of blown up in the six years since Raspberry Pi released its first credit card-sized computer. Over the past year, we’ve seen a number of models powered by Rockchip’s RK3399 hexa-core processor. But the latest isn’t so much a single-board PC as an entire ecosystem of products designed around […]
