Microsoft Store app picks up dedicated ‘Devices’ tab for new PCs and hardware

A new tab for buying Windows devices has appeared in the latest update for Microsoft Store.

It looks like Microsoft isn’t done updating the Store with a new layout in anticipation of the Redstone 4 update due in the coming weeks. Besides the recent addition of Edge Extensions, a new category called Devices has been added in the latest update – version 11802.1001.11.0 – which went out earlier today across all releases of Windows 10.

‘Devices’ as a tab is self-explanatory being a separate area where Microsoft can show off new Windows hardware including Surfaces, Harmon Kardon Invoke (for those in the U.S.), Xbox consoles, PCs from Dell, HP, Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and accessories. It’s the same catalog that is all stocked online in the web version of the Microsoft Store.

Besides one-click buying of new hardware customers can also pre-order things like the new upcoming See of Thieves Xbox Pro Charging Stand. The process lets you pick a shipping and payment address…

Twitter updates its Windows 10 UWP app to PWA with support for push notifications

Twitter has finally updated its Windows 10 app, converting it from an outdated, unsupported UWP app to a shiny, new PWA app!

The UWP Twitter app for Windows 10 had more or less been left for dead. It hadn’t been updated in forever, and was missing simple changes to the Twitter service such as the increase from 180 to 240 character tweets. Today, however, Twitter has finally updated its Windows 10 app, changing it from a UWP to PWA. This is good news.

Progressive Web Apps (PWA): What they are, and what they mean for Microsoft

The new Twitter app looks identical to the mobile Twitter PWA website you can find online, except now it’s wrapped in a window that makes the app feel native. It also supports push notifications, meaning you don’t have to have the app open to see any replies to tweets. It doesn’t appear to support live tiles just yet, however.

Because it’s the PWA version of Twitter, it has all the latest changes and enhancements you can find on the Twitter service, for bet…

Why it’s time for PC makers to embrace 3:2 displays

If PC companies don’t start adopting Surface-like display ratios, consumers might start passing on their products.

One of the benefits of my job is that I get to handle a lot of laptops and PCs. Besides distilling the pros and cons of each, it affords me a bird’s eye view of the entire industry – trends, problems, and what needs fixing. I’ve been bullish on the increased quality of PCs – especially from Dell and HP – with innovative designs, but there is still one area that bugs me: display aspect ratio.

Microsoft started the 3:2 aspect ratio trend with the Surface Pro 3, but few companies have revamped their PC lineup and followed Microsoft’s lead. That’s a shame, as I find 3:2 much more useful in 2018 in a web-focused world.

Display aspect ratios widely vary

The Acer Predator 21 X features a very wide 21:9 display aspect.

Despite most laptops sporting a cinema-friendly 16:9 ratio, the industry has bounced between 4:3 in older desktop monitors to 16:10 in some…

My essential laptop accessories for everyday use

I’ve been using the LG gram 15Z980 as my primary laptop for a couple months; these are the accessories I use the most.

As far as thin, light laptops go, LG’s refreshed lineup of gram laptops — available in 13-, 14-, and 15-inch configurations — is near the top of the list. The largest version, the 15Z980, has stellar battery life, a beautiful display, and the hardware inside needed to tackle a day’s work. To complement the laptop, I use a number of accessories on a near-daily basis, which I’ve rounded up here. Though I use them with my gram, they’re also great accessories for just about any laptop.

This Tacklife USB rechargeable electric arc lighter is only $10

A safe and easy way to light things on fire.

This Tacklife USB-rechargeable electric arc lighter is down to $10.12 with code TEKPK6SU on Amazon. In January this lighter was selling as high as $19. It has since dropped down to around the $13 price, but this code brings it down to an even more fantastic low price.

This arc lighter is very similar to a model we’ve shared many deals on before, except this one has an extended neck. The flexible section can rotate as well, so you can fit it in the weird and awkward spots you might need to light something, like the stove or grill or a candle where you can’t quite reach the wick. It has a 220mAh built-in battery that can be recharged via USB more than 200 times and gets you more than 400 lights per charge. The lighter automatically shuts off after 10 seconds and has no spark, no smell, and never needs gas. Tacklife backs it up with a two-year warranty.

Best Managed Switches of 2018

Managed switches offer more control over a network and connected devices. Here are a few examples of quality options.

Managed switches are networking hubs that allow you to hook up a number of devices to a network and manipulate how traffic is controlled. Think of a managed switch (in comparison to an unmanaged switch) as a virtual private server (VPS) that offers you much more than shared web hosting but requires you to get a little dirty in the backend to get everything working.

We rounded up a few great examples of managed switches.
