It's the end of the year, so it's time for those arbitrary yet popular "lists" by popular magazines and news outlets. PC World is no different and they just put theirs up.
As you can guess from the headline, Windows Phone landed a spot in their top 10 list of "tech wins" for the year, specifically the 9th slide--it's not clear that they organized them in any order, so that's good. Other mentions were the Kinect, Siri, Google Chrome, Samsung's Galaxy series and IBM's Watson.
Do these lists matter? Yeah, actually they kind of do. We take our devices for granted a bit around here but lets look at the audience for these periodicals--fact is, any positive word of mouth is great for the platform. So we're more than pleased to see Microsoft making the cut (twice, in fact) and we hope it piques some interest in 2012.
The Windows Central Podcast with our Executive Editor, Daniel Rubino and Senior Editor, Zac Bowden will be LIVE on Wednesday, September 22 at 1PM ET for a special episode focused entirely on the announcements coming out of Microsoft's hardware event, which takes place a couple hours before at 11AM ET.
Microsoft has officially taken the wraps off its second generation Surface Duo, featuring upgrades in every single department. Surface Duo 2 has bigger and better displays, support for 5G and NFC enabling wireless payments, the latest flagship processor from Qualcomm, and a new Glance bar feature that shows notifications down the spine of the device when closed.
To make the most out of your processor, you'll want to consider AIO water cooling. The Corsair 275R Airflow can support radiators up to 360mm, so we've rounded up a few fine examples of some of the best AIOs out there that'll fit inside this chassis.
