The guys at Modbook are onto something new! Meanwhile, the Xbox One and Windows Phone 8.1 are becoming more China friendly.
iPads may be awesome for consumers and even some professionals, but when it comes to raw work you need something with a bit more guts. Creative individuals have gone through heaps and leaps to find the best creative work machine out there, but it seems Modbook has found the perfect solution.
Enter the Modbook Pro X, a project that will turn Macbook Pros with Retina Display (15-inch) into tablets with a fully-operational touchscreen, digitizer and detachable keyboard. For this, Modbook needs to disassemble the laptop and put it all together in its new body. This won’t come cheap, so the company has turned to Kickstarter for some help.
You can go check out their Kickstarter page and see how much you can pledge to put your name to one of these.
Opinion: Spoiler – turning your Macbook Pro into a tablet won’t come cheap! The cheapest option available is $1999 (or more), and you need to send in your own Macbook Pro for them to transform.
China entered a whole new era in gaming when they lifted a 14-year old ban on foreign consoles. The first non-Chinese console to make it to this land is the Xbox One, which is set for release come September 23rd.
The unit will cost ¥3,699 RMB, which equals to about $600 US dollars. Games will vary between ¥99 and ¥249, with the first titles in line being Forza Motorsport 5, Powerstar Golf, Zoo Tycoon, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Kinect Sports Rivals.
Opinion: This brings a new beginning to the Chinese gaming market and we are hoping more console makers are willing to bring their business to China. Meanwhile, our fellow Chinese gamers can finally get some action with Microsoft’s console!
The first update to Windows Phone 8.1 is to be pushed out next week. Very few improvements and additions will be included, but the few that are present will be of high interest to many of you. For starters, Live folders will be supported. What’s most exciting is that Cortana will be reaching UK and Chinese users in beta.
Opinion: You can’t deny the Chinese Cortana looks amazingly cute! Regardless, it’s nice to see that more of you will seen enjoy the digital assistant.
