The Essential Device

In 1965, Intel cofounder Gordon Moore predicted the number of transistors on a computer chip would double every two years. Moore’s Law, as it’s now known, has proved pretty much accurate for more than four decades, and it’s the reason why every year the technology industry is able to offer us faster, thinner, and smaller machines and gadgets than the year before.
 
This year is no exception.
 
We scoured press releases, product reviews, and industry awards for promising new computers, phones, printers, storage drives, videoconferencing services, and other accessories we think might be useful work tools. We found ultra-thin laptops and keyboards. We found superfast external storage drives. And we found phones with apps that can do just about anything.
