Windows on Snapdragon computers, which run on Qualcomm’s smartphone processors and modems, are finally making their way to store shelves this spring. Basically, the new platform makes laptops work like how we’re used to smartphones working: instantly, quietly, and efficiently. Windows 10 will remain the same and the #laptop will have always-available LTE connection. However, Windows on Snapdragon is a 32-bit platform, which means that any 64-bit (x64, in Microsoft parlance) apps will fail to install or run on it. This platform has its pros and cons but overall, it may be best for the most casual of users. 📷: @dcseifert

Here’s the thing: using the AirPods isn’t merely a “wireless EarPods” #music experience. Without the cord, the headphones don't fall out and the stem is surprisingly helpful in anchoring the headphones by sitting flush against the user's face. As far as sound is concerned, there’s enough of everything: bass and treble extension, soundstage, clarity, and detail. #stopmotion #stopmotionanimation #animationart 📷: @micheledoyingphotography

Dell’s new XPS 13 is an overdue refresh of the company’s flagship laptop, but it’s still far from perfect. The keyboard on the new model is slightly less mushy than before, and its full-travel keys are a joy to type on. It's available in either a 1080p panel, which starts at $999, and a pixel-dense 4K version, which pushes the price up to $1,600. The capacity of the battery took a hit on the new XPS 13, particularly on the 4K display — Verge senior editor Dan Seifert averaged six hours of battery life with his normal workload (lots of web browsing, email, Slack, social networking, etc.).

Urban Outfitters sells a #phone case that lets you press buttons as if they were bubble wrap. Unfortunately, the case is hard to remove and isn't very protective. However, the actual “bubble wrap” feature works quite well. Each bubble is a button you push, so they make a sound similar to a pen clicking. The action of pressing them also feels like pressing down on the top of a pen. It's time to get poppin'. 📷:@holowatyrose

Microsoft has updated its Edge iOS preview app to include ​iPad support. It’s a rather basic iPad app, though. #Microsoft hasn’t included iOS 11 split screen support, so you can’t run the browser alongside another app. That’s disappointing, but it’s still in preview so that support may arrive before the browser is released for all iPad users. ​If you’re a Microsoft Edge on iOS tester you can download the preview immediately from TestFlight.

Fortnite runs very smoothly on the iPhone X, with barely any framerate drops. Unlike its main rival, PUBG, Epic Games’ #Fortnite is highly optimized on other platforms, so it might not be too surprising that it runs well on mobile. Still, running a PC or console game on a tiny phone is very impressive. It’s around 2GB, which is a reasonable download size for this type of mobile game, and the cartoon-like graphics clearly help Fortnite run well on mobile and adapt to the smaller screen of an #iphone or iPad. #gaming 📷: @tomwarrenuk

Samsung’s 2018 flagship phone, the Galaxy S9, is the first in the world with an f/1.5 lens aperture. But set aside all the hype about it being part of a dual-aperture system. What we really wanted to know about this change is how it might improve Samsung’s low-light imaging. Having the widest aperture means being able to soak up the most light, so, in theory at least, the Galaxy S9 should be the best cameraphone for situations where light is at a premium. Except, well, there’s Google’s Pixel 2, which has taken over the mantle from the original Pixel as the best all-around camera on a phone. The Pixel achieves superlative results through clever image stacking and processing algorithms rather than pure hardware might. So it could still be the best. Senior editor Vlad Savov took a late-night walk with the Galaxy S9 Plus and the Pixel 2 XL and took a bunch of side-by-side photos. Which phone takes the best photos in low-light settings? Watch our Instagram Story to see if you can tell the difference.

Google Home devices now let you set location-based reminders. All you have to do is tell #Google Assistant that you want to be reminded of something when you are at a certain location. You can say things like, “Hey Google, set a reminder to pick up more coffee at the grocery store.” Since your Google Home device stays at home, Google Assistant will then send you a reminder on your phone once you reached the location, assuming your location services are on. You can also specify the kind of store, like a Walmart or a Starbucks. #tech 📷: @happicamp

Microsoft is adding support for AMD’s FreeSync displays to its Xbox One X and #Xbox One S consoles soon. The upcoming Xbox spring update already includes 1440p support on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X for monitors, but the addition of FreeSync will allow compatible displays to sync refresh rates with Microsoft’s consoles. FreeSync, like Nvidia’s G-Sync, helps remove tearing or stuttering usually associated with #gaming on monitors, as the technology syncs refresh rates to ensure games run smooth. 📷: @happicamp

Toshiba's trying to break ground with the new dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses. However, it’s not so much augmented reality as it is a heads-up display. Toshiba says it considers it more “assisted reality” than augmented. And the “glasses” part is really a single arm that can be attached to different form factors, whether that’s glasses, safety goggles, or a hard hat. The #tech is aimed towards the workplace. It lets workers view documents and PDFs, record and send #photos, and even launch remote video chats directly from the headset, all without having to use their hands. 📷:@tylerpina1

Sony has made it a point to come to #SXSW, the annual Austin-based tech and culture meet-up, every year with a warehouse full of weird gadgets, demos, games, and other interactive experiences. This year was no different, as Sony opened the doors on the Wow Factory. The core premise is that with a mix of smart sensors that perform depth detection and motion tracking with a high-quality light source, you can create the closest thing we have today to interactive holograms. The projectors create objects out of light that typically exist on a flat plane either in front of the projector or below on a tabletop. You can interact with these virtual objects using your hands because the projector’s software is able to recognize and track your movements. Effectively, Sony has figured out a way to make augmented reality without requiring you wear bulky goggles or goofy smart glasses.#tech 📷: @hotdog_bandit11

The Hennessey Venom F5 is faster than an F1 #car and named after an F5 tornado. It is all about raw power and radical #design. It’s also about as rare as they come, with just 24 being made — half of which the company says have already been bought for a cool $1.6 million each. The Hennessey Venom F5’s 1,600 horsepower twin turbo V8 is supposedly capable of pushing the car to 301 miles per hour. It can hit 186 miles per hour in less than 10 seconds, and get to nearly 250 miles per hour and back to a stop in 30. #genevamotorshow 📷: @vladsavov

Samsung unveiled its 2018 lineup of QLED 4K TVs and unsurprisingly, #Samsung has proven why it remains the leading TV maker. All new QLEDs have an “Ambient Mode” that uses your phone to capture a photo of the environment behind it, and then creates a matching look on screen. This effect was previously seen on Samsung’s Frame TVs. Ambient Mode will also display temperature, news headlines, personal photos, and other information. It basically turns Samsung’s QLED into a smart display when not in use. You’re not looking at some transparent display; the TV just creates shadows and other effects to make it seem that way. 📷: @chriswelch

The all-electric Rimac feels anonymous and unexciting. The Rimac goes crazy fast, and much of its #design is probably motivated by the exigencies of aerodynamics, but it lacks the visual appeal of the world’s most evocative supercars. However, this #car comes with jaw-dropping claims of 1,914 horsepower, a 1.85-second 0-60 mph time, and a max speed of 258 mph. The promised 400-mile range on a single charge is also hugely impressive. There’s no mistaking the high sophistication of engineering, aerodynamics, and materials science that has gone into crafting the Rimac C Two. Techies will also find such niceties as Level 4 autonomy for when they don’t feel like driving, facial recognition replacing the need for a key (to both unlock and start the car), voice control, ADAS, and preloaded racetrack maps and guides for the aspiring track hero. But does all of that make up for the design? #genevamotorshow 📷: @vladsavov

Laptops with LTE are poised to become a serious thing this year and the new Surface Pro LTE from #Microsoft is leading the charge. It’s a modern, capable, 2-in-1 computer that also happens to be able to connect to the internet without the need for a Wi-Fi network or a hot spot device. It has a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, a seventh-generation Intel Core processor, and it weighs less than two pounds (without a keyboard attached). Microsoft isn’t explicitly saying what carriers the Pro supports, but it is sold unlocked and supports bands for AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, plus international networks, so it should work almost anywhere you go. #computer #tech 📷: @holowatyrose

Lamborghini's convertible Huracán looks stunning in matte blue. The Huracán has both character and performance making it a showstopper at the #genevamotorshow. The Performante Spyder weighs 35kg less than its predecessor, and is built out of an aluminum-carbon fiber composite. It has a 640-horsepower V10 engine. Max speed is 201 mph and 0 to 62 mph is reached in a hair-ruffling 3.1 seconds. #Lamborghini as priced this model at €220,000 and $309,000 before taxes. 📷: @vladsavov
