    If you can’t beat them, join and follow them as soon as possible in as many markets as you can, and hope prospective clients will find your service more practical, convenient, secure and widely accepted.

    Asus had a lot to talk about during its “Zenvolution” conference in Taipei earlier today, opening the 2016 edition of the typically low-key Computex expo with a bang by taking the wraps off three exquisite-looking, relatively affordable phones, three 2-in-1 Surface Pro 4 competitors, a MacBook slayer, and even an ...

    Even Microsoft’s most hardcore fans and health nuts in general have to admit Redmond’s second-gen fitness band, while better than the original in every single way, felt a little on the pricey side at $250 back in the day.
