Buy a stylish leather Apple Watch band for just $5

Mac World - Thu, 2018-11-15 17:20

Apple makes leather Apple Watch bands of its own, but they're pricey things that cost around a third of what an actual Apple Watch costs. Buy the Hermès version, and you might as well be buying a second watch. There’s little sense in that.

Today on Amazon, you can pick up Kades’ 42/44mm genuine brown leather Apple Watch band with silver trimmings for just $4.99 when you enter the code KADES040 at checkout. That's exactly half off the regular price of $9.99.

PC World - Thu, 2018-11-15 15:30

There are many factors to consider when buying a new business laptop for yourself or others in your organization. To help you make the best decision, we’ve put together this quick guide to the things you should be looking out for when making your purchase.

Sponsored by HP.

How will you use it?

The most important question to ask before drawing up your shopping list is what the device’s day-to-day duties will entail.

If it’s just for producing reports, presentations, and spreadsheets, then all modern laptops will easily cope with these tasks. But if you need to replace a desktop machine, you're better off going for models with larger 15in or 17in displays, as they provide a more comfortable experience for users.

If you think the Pixel 3 XL is ugly, take a look at the double-notch Sharp Aquos R2 Compact

PC World - Thu, 2018-11-15 12:41

Just when you thought you had seen every awful notch on a phone, Sharp is here to one-up everyone. Like the Essential Phone, the Aquos R2 Compact has a small eraser-shaped camera notch at the top of the screen, but it’s also added one to the bottom.

Why? Because there’s a fingerprint sensor down there.

We know what you’re thinking, and no, we don’t know why Sharp didn’t just put it on the back like with every other Android phone. So you’ll get a rectangular notch at the bottom of the screen that cuts around half of the fingerprint sensor, while the other half rests on the chin.

It’s basically an abomination. The rest of the phone is actually pretty good, with a top-of-the-line processor and display

XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy review: Pedal to the heavy metal

PC World - Thu, 2018-11-15 09:00

How can improvements to the GPU manufacturing process make graphics cards better? There’s no one solution, and today’s launch of the $280 Radeon RX 590 shows that Nvidia and AMD took two wildly divergent paths in the shift to the 12nm process.

Nvidia’s used the extra space and process improvements to cram its GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards with radical, futuristic hardware devoted to driving adoption of real-time ray tracing and machine learning in games. The downside? The cheapest RTX option, the RTX 2070, starts at $500. AMD took a different tack: The Radeon RX 590 is essentially identical to the $240 8GB Radeon RX 580 under the hood, but shifting from 14nm to 12nm let AMD eke out much higher clock speeds than before—and prep a new graphics card that challenges the massive price gap between the $250 GTX 1060 and $370 GTX 1070.
