When NVIDIA brought Valve’s Portal to its SHIELD portable last month, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist the pull of completing the game for the third or fourth time. After all, this would be the first time I’d be able to enjoy the game while mobile, or with sheer convenience right before I […]

This cable company has been in the news a lot lately – from its shakedown of Netflix, to its attempt at monopolizing the market by wanting to absorb Time Warner Cable.  Now Comcast is making its intentions clear of wanting to start its very own YouTube competitor.

Civilization V Brave New World

Ever since Valve released Steam for Linux, I had been hoping that Sid Meier’s Civilization V would come to the platform. In truth, I didn’t actually expect it to happen – not even after Beyond Earth was announced for Linux. As the game was announced for the OS earlier this week, though, this is one […]

Ahead of the Steam Summer Sale, We Recommend You Grab the Enhanced Steam Browser Plugin

Posted on June 12, 2014 11:46 AM by Rob Williams
Enhanced Steam - Store Page

As popular as the Enhanced Steam browser plugin is, I don’t think it’s popular enough. Simply put: If you use Steam, you should be using Enhanced Steam. It includes a number of features that I feel Steam itself should have built-in, and now, when I log into Steam with a different browser, it feels a […]

Fans of Firaxis’ Civilization series tend to be passionate, so whenever a new title gets announced, you can almost hear the inner-excitement from fans the world over.

Believe it or Not: Grand Theft Auto V to Hit the PC this Fall

Grand Theft Auto V Box Art

Rockstar excels at game-making – no one can argue that. But believe it or not, the company might be even better at something else: Keeping secrets. When’s the last time something leaked out of Rockstar? I can’t personally remember. It almost makes me wonder if the company has the gang members it hires for voice-overs on call, […]

As a bit of a tech geek, I sometimes glean an intriguing fact from something mundane that almost no one would appreciate. This particular case should be no exception. If I were to tell this to someone walking by on the street, I’d probably be accused of talking absolute nonsense. That’s about how most of my puns […]

With the latest update to its Payments service, Amazon continues to move ever-closer to PayPal in terms of services offered. Amazon Payments has been a great competitor to PayPal since its launching for simply sending money to someone, or paying for a product on the marketplace, but it’s fallen short where recurring fees are concerned.

iPhone 5S Using iOS 8

At its annual WWDC event in San Francisco, Apple never fails to reveal some cool features, either for the iPhone or other product lines. For iOS 8, though, the company left out a worthwhile mention – probably because it’s not one that would be considered “fun” or “hip”. Yet, it’s a boon to our privacy, […]

Well, I am sure multiple world records will be broken […]
