Did you know that if you right click a tab in Chrome, you can pin it: moving it to the top left hand corner of your browser and reducing it to a fraction of the usual size? It’s the ideal solution when music streaming services like Spotify, email inboxes and live-feeds are cluttering up your browser space. The tab even glows whenever the page changes, so if a new update or email comes in, you’ll be the first to know.

 

8 inch tablets running Windows 8 haven’t exactly been flying off the shelves. Underpowered Intel chips and usability issues on an OS clearly built for larger displays were major stumbling points that consigned initial releases to the scrapheap.

 

With a new Atom processor, upgraded Windows 8.1 and a range of excellent features, Dell’s Venue 8 is looking to breath new life back into a niche many had already written off. It gets off to a brilliant start by offering some of the most desirable features around: solid build quality, Office support, excellent accessory options and stylus support are all highly sought after.

 

Having got so much right however, it’s all the more disappointing to see that Dell skimp on a few key elements. The 200 PPI screen lacks the clarity of rivals, the firmware is buggy and the absence of standard features like thumb rejection are particularly irksome for those that have become reliant on them.

 

The most frustrating thing about the Venue 8 is how tantalisingly close it comes to being a world-beater. It’s not a bad tablet, but the faint whispers of promise that surround the device will leave many users wondering what could have been.

 

A bit like with the so called “must have for the ethical consumer” Buycott. An a free, innovative app that allows its users to see exactly who makes their products. It’s as simple as scanning a barcode, after that the app will display exactly who is profiting from this potential purchase and what (if any) moral misdemeanours they’ve been involved in. Unfortunately it’s clunky, unintuitive UI has seen it drop off phones faster than headphone jacks. Too soon? Too soon.

 

It’s been consigned to edges of obscure history much like the fact that if you right click a tab in Chrome, you can pin it: moving it to the top left hand corner of your browser and reducing it to a fraction of the usual size? It’s the ideal solution when music streaming services like Spotify, email inboxes and live-feeds are cluttering up your browser space.
