Don’t think Republicans can be punk rock? Well, in 1987, they staged one of the most punk rock protests that Capitol Hill has ever seen. They smashed a boombox to pieces with some sledgehammers. The part that was slightly less punk rock? They smashed it because they were mad at Toshiba for making electronics sold in…
If you’re the owner of a Toshiba laptop, there’s a chance its battery could overheat and go kaboom and melt your machine—which is why the Japanese electronics giant recalled a bunch of Panasonic battery packs this week.
The Sony spin-off Vaio has announced that it plans to merge with the computer divisions of its rivals Toshiba and Fujitsu as early as next month to form a Japanese “PC giant.”
It’s already been almost five years since the nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and the inspection and clean-up is going to last decades. Our best weapon? Amazing robots, like this one Toshiba announced on Monday.
Earlier this year, it came to light that Toshiba had exaggerated its operating profits by $1.2 billion over the past six years. Now, it looks set to report a staggering $4.5 billion of losses—and cut 6,800 jobs as a result.
For many, a laptop is a deeply personal device, one that gets used and abused even more than a smartphone. So you really want to love using it—especially if you’re going to spend upwards of $1,600 on something like Toshiba’s new Satellite Radius 12. But the impressive hardware doesn’t make this laptop worth the price…
Sony has confirmed that it’s currently in negotiations to agree the terms with which it will take over Toshiba’s CMOS image sensor business. The move will see Sony boost its already impressive image sensor division.
Toshiba has just announced a new Windows 10 convertible called the DynaPad, that shares more than a passing resemblance to the Microsoft Surface — but it’s lighter, thinner and likely a good bet for anyone who needs to use a stylus.
Toshiba is not a company normally known for pushing the bounds of laptop innovation and design. But change is afoot — first, with a surprisingly good full HD Chromebook, then a cheap-and-quite-cheerful Windows convertible, and now a fantastically bonkers 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display.
Toshiba has announced that its CEO, Hisao Tanaka, is resigning because the company exaggerated its operating profits by a staggering $1.2 billion over the past six years.
When the 2011 earthquake in Japan damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant, teams scrambled to find a robot that could go where humans couldn’t. In many ways those robots failed, and ever since, there has been a focus on creating robots that can get the job done. Enter Toshiba’s “Scorpion” robot, which will make its…
Tiny capacious flash drives not only make it easy to carry gigs and gigs of data wherever you go, they also makes it easy to lose gigs and gigs of data. So if you've had more flash drives go MIA than you prefer to remember, Toshiba will now let you password protect those lost files with a built-in PIN pad so you don't…
This is Toshiba's new Satellite Radius 11, a convertible PC-cum-tablet. Yes, it looks a lot like a Lenovo Yoga—but if you're on a budget and need a (quite literally) flexible computer, it might be for you.
Proving its engineers are just as capable as anyone at developing a creepy human-like robot that embraces the Uncanny Valley, Toshiba has developed an android that specializes in sign language thanks to a pair of highly articulated hands. One day the company hopes it could serve as an artificial receptionist, but it's…
In a factory that once made floppy disks, herbs are growing. Inside an old semiconductor factory, there's lettuce taking root. Oddly enough, electronics factories make great farms. And Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic, are swapping industrial infrastructure for a business that's as old as civilization itself.
Prefer swiping through Windows tiles rather than Android's app icons? If you're on a budget, you rarely have any other option other than Android when it comes to tablets—but Toshiba's new Encore Mini is the first of what could be a long line to buck that trend.
Last January, Toshiba introduced its first Chromebook, a 13.3-inch device that attempted to deliver Google's promise of productive computing on the cheap. But over the past nine months, ChromeOS has grown in popularity and as a platform in general, and Toshiba wants to grow with it.
With countless new models released every year, the robovac arms race seems happy to ignore features like battery life, storage capacity, and even price. What's most important these days is how intelligently an autonomous vacuum can navigate its surroundings, so Toshiba's crammed some 27 sensors into its new Torneo…
