    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Gets Listed For Pre-Order

    When Samsung first announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi-only tablet, they failed to mention anything about pricing or availability.

J&R electronics retailer has listed the device for pre-order in both the 32GB and 16GB flavors. Read More

  • Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    When I was just a wee pupil, an excellent science fair project didn’t get you much. At best, you walked away with a blue ribbon and the satisfaction of knowing your paper mache volcano was better than your friends’. These days, a great science project can win you much more, like the opportunity to attend a rocket launch in Japan. Way cooler, yes? Thanks to a partnership between… Read More
