Dyson AM09 Hot+Cool fan heater is the prettiest way to cool your room

A year ago Dyson upgraded its “air multiplier” line with the AM06, AM07, and AM08 fans . The release made the bladeless fans 75% quieter without losing any power. It didn’t make Dyson’s fans any more affordable, and they were already sufficiently powerful, so the quieter operation made them a whole lot nicer to live with. Noticeably missing from the update was a Hot+Cool, Dyson’s fan with a built-in heater. That product, the AM09, recently ...

Geek deals: 50% off Astro A30 gaming headset

Far too often, the audio aspect of video games is given short shrift. Sometimes by the developers, but more often it’s done by the consumers themselves. Frankly, junky TV speakers or cheap earphones are no way to experience a soundscape. If you really want to experience your games properly, take a look at this A30 headset from Astro. The headphones themselves are comfortable, breathable, and offer a 7.1 surround sound listening experience. ...

On its 5th anniversary, Apple's iPad remains world's best tablet, but tablet market is due for change

Feature By Neil Hughes Friday, April 03, 2015, 07:15 am PT (10:15 am ET) The iPad has proven to be a bigger success than just about anyone, including Apple, ever predicted. But while the overall tablet market exploded, riding high on the success of the iPad, it plateaued just as quickly, and seems poised for a shakeup in the near future. Friday marks five years since the first iPad went on sale in 2010. In that time, Apple has sold nearly 2...

The Internet doesn’t make you smarter; you only think it does

If you’ve ever lived with roommates, chances are you shared a “transactive” memory system with them. One person might have remembered to pay the bills, while another knew the contact details of the plumber. It's common to find social systems that share the information needed by a group across all the members of that group. Systems like these make life easier for individuals, who need only keep track of who knows which nugget. Transactive me...

A rare LHC tour—avoiding radiation to see scientific history up close

CESSY, France—As we drive through small villages in Eastern France, some for the second time, it's becoming increasingly clear that my tour guide is lost. She's got a stack of printed Google Maps, but, without a clear indication of where we actually are, it's tough to tell where in the stack she should be looking. Eventually, on the other side of a corn field, she spots a building that looks out of place. Someone apparently ripped this stru...
