Lenovo Yoga

Just an hour after Sony’s Demand Great event ended, we could tune in to the live stream of Lenovo’s Yoga event in London, where the company planned to launch a new tablet line. While we were expecting to see the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro took us by surprise. The convertible notebook and two tablets are an attempt from Lenovo to connect with users and to connect users among each other. The keynote of the event focused on what Lenovo customers wanted from a tablet and the company tried to implement those wishes in the new line.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro convertible notebook is the thinnest and lightest notebook you will find on the market, thanks to the watchband hinge that allows the convertible to rotate and the Intel Core M70 CPU which allows for a fan-less design.The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro has a 13 inch QHD Plus display with 3200 x 1800 resolution, 8 GB RAM and features Lenovo’s new Smart Harmony software that will customize and auto-enable features on the notebook depending on how you use it. You can use the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro in stand mode, notebook mode, tablet mode and tent mode and Harmony adjusts brightness, sound and applications accordingly. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 on the other hand, will be available in 8 inch and 10 inch versions, as well as Android and Windows 8.1 versions, for those of you who enjoy the integrated desktop features of Windows 8.1. A new mode has been introduced with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, namely the Hang mode, which allows you to actually hang your tablet on a nail or whatever else you can think of, just like a painting on the wall. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 also features a redesigned stand which allows for multiple stand modes. The tablets feature Full HD resolutions, as well as the 18 hour battery life the Lenovo Yoga line is renowned for. You will also benefit from LTE and Dolby Audio.

The newest addition to the company’s portfolio is the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, which is the first tablet to incorporate a projector and a full sound system with a sub-woofer. It has a 2560 x 1440 QHD IPS display, with a 13.2 inch diameter, intended for indoor use. The company is targeting the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro at customers who had responded to their surveys saying that they mainly use their tablets indoors and with other people at the same time. It also features the same modes as the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, including the Hang mode. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is one of the most innovative Android tablets I’ve seen and we’re sure the device will fare well in the market.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
