Lenovo launches Yoga Tab 3 and Yoga Tab 3 Pro Android tablets

Lenovo says improvements have also been made to the projector inside, which has gotten brighter and can now beam out a 70-inch picture — and you can point it at either the wall or your ceiling this time. Sound quality is also a major focus, as the Yoga 3 Tab Pro has four front-facing speakers and what Lenovo describes as "virtualized Dolby Atmos" for an experience the company says can replicate surround sound. Such claims rarely pan out, but if you need to throw on a Netflix movie for a small room or restless kids (like say, when Netflix gets first dibs on Disney films next year), it might work out just fine.

Microsoft fans may not accept it, but Microsoft knows how credible a threat Chrome OS is: That is why they ran an anti-Chromebook ad campaign, and why, we presume, they have created strategies to counter Chromebooks. You don’t come up with such plans to mute a non existing threat.

Getting to grips with Google’s open-source container project

Google decided to put its container project Kubernetes [ku-ber-net-ease] out in the wild because "there is power in open source", its co-founder tells ComputerworldUK. The project, which aims to simplify containers for organisations looking for faster app launch and scale-out, began as a “grand experiment”, Kubernetes' co-founder Craig McLuckie reveals.
