GPD ships some Win 3 handheld gaming PCs with the wrong wireless card (and other mistakes)

The GPD Win 3 is a small, powerful handheld gaming computer designed to let you play AAA PC games on a device about the size of a Nintendo Switch Lite. There’s a lot to like about the little computer, but shortly after GPD began shipping the Win 3 to customers, some folks began noticing problems. […]

Lilbits: Apple M1 in everything, PinePhone as a pocket-sized Linux laptop, and Android 12’s Quick Settings redesign

When news first broke that Apple was planning to launch Macs with ARM-based processors that the company designed in-house, I didn’t think all of the company’s laptops and desktops would be using the same ARM chips. But so far that seems to be the case. This week Apple introduced new iMac all-in-one desktop PCs that have […]

Lilbits: Qualcomm’s current and next-gen laptop chips, Google Voice loses a key feature

Windows laptops with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors have been around for a few years… but they’ve offered generally underwhelming performance, especially now that Apple has shown that laptops with ARM-based processors can be much faster than equivalent models with x86 chips. But Qualcomm isn’t done making laptop processors. Details about an upcoming chip are starting to […]

GPD Win 3 docking station hands-on (and thumbs-on with joystick mouse mode)

The GPD Win 3 is a handheld computer that’s designed first and foremost for gaming. As I covered in my review of a pre-release GPD Win 3 prototype, it’s a full-fledged Windows PC with hardware that’s powerful enough for general purpose computing, but the design makes it awkward to use for anything but gaming… unless […]

Lilbits: GPD Win 3, PinePhone, and will Huawei exit the phone business?

US trade restrictions have put Huawei in a difficult position over the past few years, with the Chinese electronics company prohibited from sourcing goods from US companies. That’s even led the company to pause manufacturing its own Kirin processors, since Huawei relies on software from US companies to design its chips. So the company spun […]

Lilbits: Asus ROG Phone’s light show, GPD Win 3, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux is free for small workloads

The Asus ROG Phone line of smartphones are designed for gamers… and they tend to pack features that only a gamer could love or need like multiple USB ports, ultrasonic “airtrigger” buttons, and support for clip-on accessories including game controllers, desktop docks, and cooling fans. Last year’s ROG Phone 3 had all of those features, […]

Lilbits: More new Intel chips, PC shipments are up, and Qualcomm’s new in-screen fingerprint reader is bigger

In addition to launching new 35-watt Tiger Lake processors for gaming laptops and new 6-10 watt chips for low-cost, low-power notebooks for the education market, Intel had some other big announcements today.

Lilbits: Facebook smart glasses, GPD Win 3, and Linux smartphone news

Facebook’s first set of smart glasses may arrive this year and, despite the company’s investments in virtual reality (Facebook owns Oculus) and augmented reality, they’re not expected to be AR glasses. Honestly, so far they sound more like Snap spectacles than anything else… but maybe that’s just because Bloomberg’s article on the upcoming wearables is […]

Lilbits: Nintendo 64 cut down to size, Gazelle ends trade-ins, Pixel camera ported to non-Pixel phones

Some folks interested in playing classic console games on the go are content to run an emulator on their phones or tablets. Others actually trim the original motherboard of old game consoles and stuff them into new bodies. One YouTuber has taken that to extremes with a Nintendo 64 that’s been modified to become a […]
