ClipDrop AR Copy Paste is now available for a price

We now live in a world that revolves around digital objects but we still naturally have to deal with physical ones. Bridging the two have never been easy nor seamless but a lot of technologies, like augmented reality or AR, try to narrow the gap. But while AR brings digital objects to the real world to some extent, a new app goes the opposite direction and lets you clip and drop real-world objects into your digital canvas.

NVIDIA RTX 3080 20GB, RTX 3070 16GB may have been scrapped

NVIDIA RTX 3080 20GB, RTX 3070 16GB may have been scrapped

The GeForce RTX 3000 series is supposed to be NVIDIA's latest and greatest and while it may still end up like that next year, for now, it's starting to become the company's embarrassment. The popularity of the cards, perhaps partly thanks to aggressive and successful marketing, has created a demand that NVIDIA is unable to quickly supply. Now, however, there are signs that it may even be cutting back on at least two configurations that would have given buyers more VRAM despite slightly lower specs.

Swift 3X and Spin 5 head up Acer’s refreshed notebook line

During its [email protected] press conference today, Acer revealed a huge lineup of products, among them multiple refreshes to its consumer notebook line. The Acer Swift 3X and Spin 5 are leading the charge here, but they're joined by a new Swift 3 and a trio of Aspire 5 notebooks. While all of these notebooks fill a different niche, one thing they've got in common is the fact that all of them use Intel's 11th-gen processors.

Windows 10 October 2020 update is here, prepare your backups

Windows 10 October 2020 update is here, prepare your backups

We're practically two months away from closing this rather accursed year, which means it's time to tempt fate with a new major update to Windows 10. Now simply dubbed 20H2 to denote which half of the year it launches instead of the month, this new version is low-key on big features and full of polish and refinement, or at least that's how it's supposed to be. Windows 10 20H2 still does bring a handful of notable changes, including one that has ruffled a few feathers given Microsoft's not-so-subtle push to get its Edge browser into every PC.

Google responds to DOJ antitrust lawsuit over Search

Google responds to DOJ antitrust lawsuit over Search

It has finally happened. After repeatedly being investigated again and again over alleged anticompetitive business practices, Google was finally hit with a formal antitrust lawsuit by the US Justice Department, specifically over what is being described as an unfair monopolistic advantage in the Internet search market. Of course, Google didn't simply take the charges sitting down, given how high-profile and potentially disruptive it could be, and has now published a point-by-point rebuttal over what it calls a deeply flawed lawsuit.

How do I pause Windows 10 updates on my computer?

How do I pause Windows 10 updates on my computer?

Today we're taking a peek at the latest way to pause Windows updates with Windows 10. This system worked as of October 20, 2020, and will likely work pretty far into the future. Before you go any further, remember that pausing updates from Microsoft could result in less-than-stellar issues if you do not stay up-to-date with security fixes. If you pause updates, it should (probably) only be for a limited time.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 comes in a more compact form

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 comes in a more compact form

The Raspberry Pi single-board computers or SBCs have long been the darling of makers and tinkerers because of their size and their price. The RPis, however, have also served as the foundation of more formal products that take advantage of the platform more than just the package. For these types of uses, The Raspberry Pi Foundations has provided smaller but also less featured Compute Modules and the latest version based on the RPi 4 shrinks that size down even further with one important consequence.

Windows 10 auto-installing Office PWAs was half bug, half feature

Windows 10 auto-installing Office PWAs was half bug, half feature

Microsoft has been known to be rather aggressive and unsubtle when pushing its products to people's consciousness. That was true back when it was pushing people to upgrade to Windows 10 and it's true now as it uses Windows' Start Menu as a home for advertising its own apps. Things seem to be coming to a head again as Windows users, both Insiders and regular users, start seeing what they thought were Office web apps automatically installed without their permission. It turns out, it's partly intentional and partly a bug.

Vivaldi browser adds a game you can play even when online

Vivaldi browser adds a game you can play even when online

Google Chrome may not be the original but it may be credited for popularizing mini-game Easter Eggs in web browsers. These games were originally intended to appear only when there's no Internet connection, providing some distraction to keep your blood pressure from rising. Their popularity, however, inspired some browser makers to make these pasttimes available at any time and Vivaldi's own new title can be played whether there's an Internet connection or not.

Barnes & Noble hack exposes customers’ email, purchase history

Although the Nook has pretty much disappeared into the background behind the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble remains a well-known name with a fair number of loyal customers. Those customers, however, may now have something to worry about as the bookseller reached out with some disturbing news. It reveals that its corporate systems fell victim to a cybersecurity attack and that the hackers may have gotten away with some important information about B&N's customers, potentially including their addresses.
