Hands On With Google's Nexus 9: This Lollipop Tastes Like An IPad

10/29/14 You can taste the iPad influence in Google’s Nexus 9 tablet. Laying eyes on it for the first time, you’d be forgiven for thinking Apple made it. The slim bezel and the 4:3 aspect ratio screen are very iPad, but the display is slightly smaller — 8.9 inches to Apple’s 9.7. At 15 ounces , the Nexus 9 just as light as the iPad Air 2 . The metallic rim adds the iPad feel, but I noted one important difference: It's easier to hold the Nexus 9 in one hand.

10/29/14 At 13.2 ounces, the magnesium-alloy-bodied Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is noticeably lighter than the aluminum iPad Air 2, which weighs in at just under a pound.

Apple Retina 5K IMac Has A Screen That Can Stop Traffic

10/25/14 There is a lot to like about Apple's 27-inch iMac With Retina 5K Display.

'Clash Of Clans' IPad Game Almost Ruined The Royals' Season

10/22/14 Despite a 7-1 shellacking by the San Francisco Giants in game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night, the Kansas City Royals' season is going very well.
