These days, more and more desk-bound jobs require employees to be working in front of computers in excess of eight hours a day. As a result, injuries related to long-term usage of keyboard and in particular mice have cropped up dramatically over the years. Besides spending less time using a computer (which may not be possible for some), the only other option would be to find accessories that are designed to reduce fatigue-related injuries. One such product is the Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse.

Dangers of internetImage credit: Digital Parenting

The internet is a wonderful place that keeps you connected and helps you find things easier.

Sadly, the internet is also home to some seriously creepy people, and we can do our part to make sure incidents like this does not happen. So how do you check if you or your children’s pictures have been used on the internet?

msi-gs-30-shadow-review-24

The MSI GS30 Shadow is an interesting product. On one hand, it is a lightweight and portable laptop with a very capable processor and integrated graphics. But once the laptop is connected to the GamingDock, it turns into one beastly gaming machine that can be equipped with a desktop graphics card. While this is a very interesting take on portability and power (when you need it), is it worth its asking price that starts from RM7,499?

Like every other trade show, one of the undeniable attractions of Computex is with the bevy of beauties tending the booths of the show floors. These ladies aren’t just there to smile for the camera and attendees, but they are trained to understand the products they are promoting – in some ways, they serve as product specialists throughout the five-day event.

Without further ado, here are some of the best shots we’ve curated of the booth babes of Computex 2015.
