A compute stick is a device that you place into a television set to turn it into a computer and multimedia hub. It is portable, small and convenient for users who want to have a PC experience wherever they are.

Sometimes, it’s difficult to carry a laptop around, or a bit too expensive for someone who has a desktop PC at home. All that’s required for the Stick 300 to work is a HDMI slot in the television or monitor, and the HDMI slot is becoming the norm for display devices.

Google CEO Larry Page and Lenovo CEO Yang YuanqingIn a move that surprised everybody, Google announced that Motorola will be sold to Lenovo for $2.91 Billion in cash and stocks.

On Google Blog, Larry Page said that “this move will enable Google to devote our energy to driving innovation across the Android ecosystem, for the benefit of smartphone users everywhere.”

In my oppinion Google sold Motorola for two reasons: they failed to take advantage of Motorola patent portfolio or the plans they had with Motorola as smartphone company failed to reach their expectations.

In May 2012 the deal between Google and Motorola Mobility was official for $12.5 billion and the main reason behind that acquisition was the to get more than 17,000 important patents.

Lenovo announces Vibe Z, their first LTE smartphone

Lenovo Vibe Z SmartphoneLenovo has officially announced their first ever LTE smartphone, titled the Vibe Z. The smartphone comes among a series of four different mobile releases that will be launched both this and next month.

Three of the four devices, named the S930, S650 and A859 are pretty much just your budget smartphones. They range between 4.7″ and 6″, contain standard lower range hardware, and lack any interesting features. They all run MediaTek processors, have high definition screens, ect. All of which would have been great a couple of years ago, but is nothing exciting now. Especially considering Lenovo has given them the way-too-high price tags in the $200 – $300 range.

However, they have at least given us something that might be interesting: Vibe Z.

Lenovo Yoga 2 ProLenovo has unveiled a series of products at the Berlin IFA 2013 electronics show this morning, including two new additions to their popular Yoga series, the Yoga Pro 2 and the ThinkPad Yoga.

In an industry currently going through some major growing pains as it tries to adapt to the new needs of consumers, Lenovo has been doing surprisingly well. Convinced that laptops are dying and that PC’s have long since lost their appeal, they have been attempting to create intermediary devices that are more portable but still have the wider applications of the products that came before them.

One of the main ways they have been doing this is by making tablet/laptop hybrids that are lightweight and have swinging hinges that create a stand while also offering a keyboard. Turning it into both a touch screen, standing tablet and a basic laptop style computer.

The Yoga 2 Pro and ThinkPad Yoga use the same format. But it is the Yoga 2 that has the real stand out features that sets it apart from any of its predecessors.
