The onslaught of tech information is relentless. Stay on top of the latest with PCWorld’s Digital Edition. Available as single copies or as a yearlong subscription, it highlights the best content from PCWorld.com—the most important news, the key product reviews, and the most useful features and how-to stories—in a curated Enhanced Edition for Android, iOS, and Kindle, as well as in a Replica Edition.

The Enhanced Edition includes videos, slideshows, podcasts, and other interactive features—all designed for consuming on your tablet. The Replica Edition is a PDF-like version that’s enabled for your mobile device’s touchscreen.

In the July Digital Edition

This month, we cover Microsoft’s announcement of the Surface Pro 3—the tablet that, in Microsoft’s words, can replace your laptop. With an ultrathin profile and a gorgeous 12-inch screen, the Surface Pro 3 aims to strike the perfect balance between portability and productivity. We survey the tablet’s features and take a deep dive into the pricing and configuration details.

Also in the July Digital Edition:

Dropbox and you—a future where apps drive cloud storage: With cloud storage providers engaged in a race to the bottom—where customers choose their provider based on low (and even no) prices—companies such as Dropbox and Box are creating services and apps that they think users will find valuable enough to pony up for.

Six travel routers: We review six tiny models that let you sidestep pricey hotel Wi-Fi and set up your own secure network almost anywhere.

Play your way to productivity: We look at five personal productivity tools that put a gaming spin on the task at hand—by, say, awarding you with prizes or letting you level up each time you tick off a to-do list item.

Ubuntu Linux to the rescue: When disaster strikes your Windows PC, an Ubuntu live drive has all the tools you need to save the day.

Multimedia highlights

• Cortana says the sassiest things: Windows Phone's new voice-controlled digital assistant has some attitude, as we find out in our slideshow of a playful Q&A.

• Have router, will travel: Senior Editor Michael Brown’s video spotlights three Wi-Fi travel routers, from D-Link, Netgear, and TP-Link.

• Meet UBR-1, a four-foot-tall, people-friendly robot that can assist with tasks in a partially automated environment such as a factory.
