Their name is LIFE, Lenovo's Newest Future Icon.

Are you "that person" in your crew that is always up on the newest artists and tracks before anybody else? If so, you'll want to check out the Future Icons channel inside the Lenovo Companion app, available exclusively on Lenovo Windows 8 systems. Future Icons brings you exclusive behind-the-scenes music and videos from artists we've tapped as the next big thing. They will share with you how they use digital music creation to get their sound, and hopefully inspire you to start making some tracks as well! Our newest Future Icon is the alternative rock band called LIFE. The band consists of  Los Angeles natives Moi J Quinn,Sean Chapman, and Matthew McEwan, and offers a distinctive SoCal sound reminiscent of 311 and Sublime. Their exciting debut EP, R U D W N? drops June 18, 2014, featuring their first single of the same name. (If you're in the Los Angeles area, they will perform at their album release party at the legendary Roxy nightclub in Hollywood June 18.)  Moi, Matt and Sean were first known as the founders of Southern California band Tomorrow's Bad Seeds, and spent nearly a decade engaging a diehard fan base with three full-length albums as well as successful stints on Warped Tour. However, their muse suddenly morphed right before their eyes. "It wasn't planned out," recalls Sean. "We just started writing music, and it awakened something different within us. It wasn't...

While watching The Big Bang Theory on Thursday nights — or anytime day or night on TBS for that matter — I wondered why the show makes me laugh. I truly enjoy the geek speak, but it’s the personalities of the characters that really drive the series’ success. Removing any one of the characters would drastically change the show, and possibly its overall success. Is there a Big Bang Theory without Sheldon? Or a Modern Family without Cam? Or even a Seinfeld without Kramer? (I shudder at the thought!) Just as keeping the cast intact is important to a show’s success, keeping your data intact is paramount to the success of your business or your personal life. How many of us are cluelessly computing away, blissfully ignorant of the “what-if” scenario. What if my hard drive fails? What if my year-long project report is corrupted? What if the world never knew, “Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock” for crying out loud!??  I, too, have been a victim of this disaster. My home computer’s hard drive wouldn’t boot, no matter what I tried to do. The issue was a bad physical sector — a dead hard drive in laymen’s terms. All of the information on that drive was gone; music, pictures, tax returns, financial statements, you know the typical stuff we don’t want prying eyes to see. There are few things worse than the empty feeling you get when your data has evaporated. The personal loss was so...

The Adaptive Keyboard adjusts based on the software or application being used to highlight the most relevant keys. Enhancing user experience was paramount for Lenovo’s designers when creating the New ThinkPad X1 Carbon which is why we included features like the ColorBurst WQHD 2560x1440 display, providing vibrant images at higher resolutions with even more detail.

In the past, you may have been frustrated when filing an Accidental Damage Protection claim only to find that your Onsite Warranty service level didn’t extend to your ADP coverage.  You’d have to ship your laptop to the Depot Service Center to complete the repair and live without it for a couple of days.   Never a fun thing when your life is your PC.  Lo’ and behold, we listened!!  Starting December 1, 2013, ADP service level has been updated to match your base warranty service level for common repairs like LCD and non-customer replaceable keyboards.*       I know what you’re thinking; why not everything?  Ughhh!  Well, here’s the skinny.  Many customers prefer to get their laptop up and running as quickly as possible from accidental damage, so Lenovo developed Technician Onsite ADP repair for those who prefer this level of service.  For instance, let’s say you dropped your laptop and the LCD cracked, or you spilled coffee on your keyboard and the keyboard no longer works.  For these cases, when the repair is simple and the Call Center can determine the extent of damage and what parts are required with high confidence, then Lenovo will offer Onsite service to that customer if he/she has Onsite warranty coverage.    But, honestly, most Accidental Damage claims are much more complex.  If your laptop won’t boot normally, your...
