Parts-People.com is publishing a series of Technology News Articles focusing on a major convergence trend driving design and development of convertible and hybrid laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other form-factors of PCs entering the global marketplace. One such article on the "Faces of Convergence" states that "convergence of devices into hybrid or convertible forms is clearly the order of the day" and "has been a pervasive topic in technology media circles".

One article in the series by Paul Bottoms-Wordman refers to "Merging Laptops + Tablets" and identifies four distinctly different converged designs, and outlines their characteristics. Those four types are Sliders, Rotators, 360-Degree Gymnasts, and Dockers with split personalities. That same article includes a "List of Fuel Additives Driving Convertible Hybrids".

Five articles in that series on the PC convergence trend deal with smartphones and phablets, including one on "Upcoming Phablet Smartphone Technology Trends & Developments" which states: "Even smartphones of the smaller variety are a veritable symphonic maturation of technology convergence: multi-media player, GPS, camera, web-browsing, mobile-computing, texting, data storage, wireless broadband, voice-control, tethering other devices, touch-based inputs, unified email inbox, on-screen and physical keyboards available; and don’t forget, they still function as phones." One article even covers a phone with a built-in projector.

Several of the articles deal with "Inventions & Innovations", such as a PC-on-a-Stick, while others provide information on new technologies such as the Sandia Cooler, and the Tactus Touchscreen.
