Surface Neo: Release date, price, specs and design

The Surface Neo was announced late in 2019, revealed my Microsoft to be a dual-screen computing device with a 360-degree hinge. But while the groundbreaking device was set for a “Holiday 2020” launch, Microsoft has now confirmed it has been delayed. 

Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, suggested in a blog post earlier this year that the Surface Neo would be delayed as it was decided the upcoming Windows 10X operating system will be optimised for single-screen devices initially, therefore pushing dual-screen computing products to the back burner.

Even more recently (as spotted by Neowin) Microsoft removed the “Coming Holiday 2020” from the official Surface Neo website. This means the Neo will likely arrive in 2021 at the very earliest...

Trump may ban TikTok in the US, Microsoft ‘in talks’ to buy

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said there are multiple options for dealing with a perceived threat from the Chinese-owned app, which has been criticised for lax data protection of its users.

“We’re looking at TikTok. We may be banning TikTok. We may be doing some other things,” Trump said (via Guardian). “There are a couple of options. But a lot of things are happening. So, we’ll see what happens.”

Previously it had been reported the US may seek to ensure TikTok’s parent company ByteDance to sell the app to a US-based owner. On the list of interested parties is reportedly none other than Microsoft.

Fox Business reporter Charles Gasparino said Micr...

Google is going big on Windows apps for Chromebook laptops

Google has offered more details on the plan to bring the Windows experience to Chromebook laptops.

Last month Google revealed it would partner with the Parallels visualisation software to bring full featured Windows applications to Chromebook Enterprise users.

However, in a new interview, Google has indicated the integration will be a fully-fledged project that will enable many more Chromebook users to run apps like Word, Excel and PowerPoint in their native desktop form.

Cyrus Mistry, group product manager for Chrome OS told The Verge, that Parallels Desktop will boot a full copy of Windows alongside the Chrome OS and the Android apps they’re already running. You can see an example pictured above.

Netflix offers a change of pace with new playback speed controls

Netflix is adding new playback controls for speed binging, or slower viewing of its hit shows.

Android users will now have the opportunity to stream shows at 1.25x or 1.5x speeds to whiz through content at an accelerated pace, or at 0.5x or 0.75x to enjoy shows at a more leisurely stroll.

The latter has been heralded why the National Association of the Deaf and the National Federation of the Blind. Deaf people, for example, will appreciate slowing down the content to give them more time to read the captions. Netflix also says that those watching films in another language will appreciate the change in pace, enabling them more time to keep up with the dialogue.

Level Up: How an obsession with visuals is holding games back from greatness

It’s understandable that visuals have long been the defining feature of each new console generation. Players adamant for a graphical justification allowing them to jump on an expensive new console. 

As the medium has approached the realms of photorealism, a plateau has formed at what we can reasonably expect from each new platform. Advancements are iterative instead of groundbreaking, meaning developers are pushed to more unreasonable limits to create visually splendorous worlds to explore.

I adore experiences like this, with Horizon 2: Forbidden West and Demon’s Souls Remake already providing a glimpse at how PlayStation 5 will build upon what we already know and love...

We Might Not See iPhones With 120Hz Displays For A While

When Apple introduced 120Hz displays to the iPad Pro, many were expecting that the company would eventually introduce it to their iPhones. It was largely expected that this year could be the year, although a more recent rumor had suggested that might not be the case. Now according to the latest rumors, it seems that we probably shouldn’t expect it in 2021’s iPhones either.


According to the latest rumors, apparently Apple will not be including 120Hz displays in its iPhones for the next couple of years. The report claims that the iPhone 12 will skip on the display, as will the 2021 iPhone. It seems that the earliest we can expect to see it will be in 2022, if it even happens at all.

It is unclear why this might be the case...
