Top 30 Computer Trends in July

From Mechanical Laser Keyboards to Email Internet Security Services

— July 28, 2018 — Tech
Thes top July 2018 computer trends show a greater focus on software and peripherals, all of which are focused on improving user performance, whether that be through tactile function or general computer security.

Mechanical keyboards have become the norm for most hardcore and competitive gamers and the newly designed Razer Huntsman aims to revolutionize the way mechanical keyboards are designed. Instead of utilizing switches, which deteriorate over time, the Razer Huntsman uses lasers to actuate. This unique design combines the tactile nature of mechanical keyboards with the speed, accuracy and durability of digital sensors.

Also featured on this list is a new service from Dashlane that scans and assesses a users' email inbox to determine the safety of a computer and user. The service will showcase accounts linked to a particular email that are prone to hacking and will provide users with means to improve their overall security in the face of hacking and loss of data.
