The standard form factor is evolving with major phone makers leaking plans or announcing new models with foldable displays that offer lots more screen without sacrificing portability. Here's everything we know about the folding phone plans from Samsung, LG, Huawei, Lenovo and Apple.

The Lenovo Yoga 730 is evidence that you can teach an old dog new tricks. It's hard to believe that the same company that brings the understated, matte black ThinkPad to the market delivers the Yoga convertible, with its touchscreen, fully-foldable design and shiny body. There's a lot to like about the Yoga 730 - but there are some rough edges.
Motorola's smartphone business has been through some challenging times. After the mobile phone business was spun off, it landed with Google who later sold it to Lenovo where it sits today. And while other brands have garnered plenty of attention, Motorola has continued to create some decent Android handsets. The Moto G Plus is the company's flagship smartphone and it's a great phone that won't break the bank.
I have a small obsession with technology. OK, maybe not a small one. I love trying out the latest gadgets and tech on my eternal quest to find the gear that makes me most productive and makes work fun. I've owned more computers than I can recall from almost every major manufacturer. Of all the laptops I've owned, only one has ticked most of the boxes of acceptable compromises when it comes to form and function - the 11-inch MacBook Air. And that's why I hit the used Mac sites last week.
A few month's ago, I speculated on the release of a new "retro" ThinkPad as Lenovo was edging towards the 25th anniversary of this iconic device. Well, that device has been released. At an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the ThinkPad held in Japan at Yamato labs - the birthplace of the ThinkPad - the ThinkPad Anniversary 25 was revealed.
I've spoken before about how bloatware still "infects" computers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the US just handed Lenovo a significant smackdown over adware they pre-installed on PCs that made systems vulnerable.
Over the years I've spent a lot of money on various bits of tech. But as the reliability of hardware has improved and performance of hardware has moved along, I find that I no longer need to buy the latest and greatest gear in order to get hardware that does what I need. That's led me to looking more closely at used and refurbished equipment.
It's taken a couple of years but Lenovo is planning to release a retro-styled ThinkPad that brings back the style of the 1990s with 21st century computing power. If it's really like the ThinkPads of old, it will be a very robust computer with the best keyboard on the market and be able to withstand some heavy duty action - those computers were built to last.
Over the last couple of weeks, I've been looking at switching from an iPad Pro as the computer I use when travelling to a Windows 10 device. I set out my wish list, did a bunch of online research, visited a few retailers and then put the call out to a bunch of vendors asking them to recommend and provide me with a review device. The ultimate aim of the exercise if for me to buy, with my own money, a new computer for when I'm working remotely. The first device to arrive on my doorstep is the Lenovo Miix 510.
Right in time for CES, Lenovo has announced a suite of changes to their ThinkPad series of laptops. But while a bunch of USB ports, fingerprint sensors and Kaby Lake processors are all well and good, perhaps the biggest addition announced was the inclusion of Windows 10 Signature Edition images for the entire ThinkPad product lineup.
Adding to Lenovo's security woes, another BIOS vulnerability has been found on the vendor's PCs. According to an official statement from Lenovo, the flaw originates from one of its independent BIOS vendors and Intel so it's likely other PC manufacturers are affected as well. Here's what you need to know.
