  • Ten amazing Linux games you can play without WINE
    Those of us who have taken up the mantle of a Linux gamer know that our path is rarely easy. For a long time, few games were released for our chosen platform. Those that were shipped riddled with bugs, compatibility issues and rarely worked out of the box.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review: Finally, an Android tablet built with enterprise users in mind

Show me an Android tablet and I'll show you a device that has yet to live up to its full potential. Google's Play Store lacks a wide selection of apps that support a tablet's larger display, with most apps only expanding the phone interface, in turn looking horrible on the smaller screen. In addition to the lack of quality apps, Android tablets have lacked key accessories such as a keyboard. For the most part, Android tablets have been relegated to a device used to catch up on Netflix or to entertain kids with games. Read more
