1 – These are the best Windows laptops of 2022, according to the editorial team at Engadget.

The editorial team at tech news and review site Engadget recently released their picks for the best Windows laptops of the year. Top picks include the Acer Aspire 5 Series ($460 at Adorama) for display, processing, and storage, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 ($485 at Walmart) chosen for portability and long battery life, and the Surface Laptop Go 2 (starting at $600) for its lightweight design and ports Multiple USB and more.

Why this is important to your business:

How long do you keep laptops? My timeline is three years and then I replace it, no matter how things work. That’s because I know that after three years you’re living on the house money. And it’s basically guaranteed that when your device crashes, it will screw up at the exact wrong time. The above options from Engadget may be “cheap” but few of them are fully capable of handling the workload on you or your employees for that period of time.

2 – Startup Ambi Robotics gets $32 million to deploy its robots to sort items in warehouses.

Why this is important to your business:

While we’re still talking about robotics, I couldn’t resist including this news because it’s not the production ground that takes advantage of robotic technology. As stand-alone mowers like those made by RC Mowers become more affordable, I would expect to see countless landscapers and contractors using these machines instead of hiring workers they couldn’t find anyway.
