Find tech puzzling? Well, that’s exactly why we decided to make puzzles around tech. To give you something to rack those grey cells apart from just good old reading. The puzzles take many forms, and Nimish Dubey and Akriti Rana start with one of the most well established and respected – the crossword. Read, think, solve… enjoy. Because tech can be puzzling. And a stack of fun besides.

8 Eat your heart out, iPhone. I got both jet black and black on my back. Hah! and I am the stuff of which displays are made too.
9 The new touch on the MacBook Pro. And yes, we were so wrong about calling it a stunt.
