Watch Ubisoft's E3 keynote live stream here! — If you're reading this, chances are you're waiting for Ubisoft to shed more light on its upcoming titles: Assassin's Creed Syndicate , Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege , Tom Clancy's The Division and possibly several virtual reality games as hinted by the company last month.

小米之家香港站開幕啦,提供配件和一小時維修服務 — 在香港,小米的手機和配件隨處可見,不過維修站點卻只有一家,所以售後服務一直都是痛點。為了解決這個問題,小米終於在香港旺角的荷里活商業中心 20 樓開設了全球第二十個小米之家(咦,魅族就在樓下),也是首個在大陸以外的小米之家。小米承諾會提供一小時特快維修服務,不過前提是你必須先在官網預約,還有水貨和香港沒賣的

Get tailor-made headphone audio with this little device — Audio snobs may already be boasting their high-end audio equipment, be it a special chip inside their smartphones or portable headphone amps, but these are no good if your ears have slight hearing loss. Even if you deem your ears to be pitch perfect, chances are your left and right ears have different sensitivity to certain frequencies.

Quick Charge 2.0 is coming to USB hubs — Isn't it annoying when some smartphones boast Quick Charge 2.0 but only come with a regular USB charger? Given the option, we'd rather spend the money on something more practical, like a USB hub that supports Quick Charge. And why yes, we managed to stumble upon one at Computex, courtesy of Hong Kong's Magic-Pro.

Watch Synaptics' touch-sensitive space bar in action — Earlier today, Synaptics announced its SmartBar technology that adds a touch input area -- enabled by a sub-0.2mm-thick PET film -- onto the space bar, which then lets you perform certain tasks without having to touch the mouse or trackpad. We went over to the company's show room at Computex to check this out, and we came away impressed.

Dell unveils a range of affordable PCs ahead of Windows 10 — While Dell managed to surprise us with its rather handsome XPS 15 -- the sibling of the thin-bezel XPS 13 laptop -- at Computex, it's also bringing us a range of both new and refresh models ahead of the Windows 10 launch.

Intel: Rezence wireless charging will be in next year's devices — As we heard from Intel at its Computex keynote, the merger between A4WP (Alliance for Wireless Power) and PMA (Power Matters Alliance) is finally a signed deal as of today, which is a big step towards delivering the next-generation wireless power -- one that can transmit further while also covering a wider range of wattage -- to consumers.

Acer's smart diaper is the crappiest demo at Computex — Ever since the introduction of the Edison, Intel's been actively pitching this tiny computer module to makers by way of workshops and hackathons. At Computex, the chip giant took the opportunity to show off the latest round of hacks based on its $50 kit, and we were amused by one particular demo: the DiaperPie*, a smart diaper solution created by four Acer engineers.

This transforming PC tower could be a robot in disguise — Remember that time when Hasbro got really upset with ASUS for calling its convertible laptops Transformers, only to have its request for sales injunction shot down by the court? A little over three years later, we find ourselves staring at a desktop PC tower -- a collaboration between ASUS ROG and In Win -- that is begging to be given the same name.

MediaTek's Helio P10 offers octa-core and faster LTE on the cheap — It's only been half a month since MediaTek announced a 10-core mobile processor, the Helio X20, as its flagship product for next year, but the company is already prepping a slightly lesser model to stay true to its roots. Meet the Helio P10, the first member of the "premium performance" family (while the X family is for "extreme performance").
