In a perfect future, our A.I. virtual assistant will know what we’re doing, where we’re going and — most importantly — what we’re saying. They’ll know lots of other things, too. And when they sense we need help, they’ll whisper suggestions, ideas or facts into our ears, essentially giving us real-time knowledge as we go about our day.

As you’re walking from a parking garage to your meeting, your virtual assistant should give you turn-by-turn walking directions without you having to ask. As you shake hands before the mee…

Fewer PCs are being sold thanks to higher component prices

Computer Hardware

The increase in price is likely to continue for the whole year, which could put off consumers looking to upgrade their PCs and force businesses to delay theirs.

Lenovo is still ahead of HP and Dell on the manufact…
