battery

What is it that holds you back from going wireless? If you said it is the rechargeable battery’s inability to handle multiple charges and to charge quickly, then your revolution is just around the corner. Earlier this week, scientists at Nanyang Technology University (NTU) developed a new way to use one of the smallest technologies, nanotubes, […]

Android Lollipop Main Screen

The upcoming release of the Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet doesn’t just signify the release of Google’s latest flagships, it also signifies the first major (as per version numbering, at least) Android OS release in three years. Called Lollipop, Android 5.0 brings a lot of sugary goodness to the table, and ultimately becomes Google’s […]

Aliens versus Predator 1999 Game Box Art

One of the best ways to get people to help beta test a new product or service is to bribe them, and GOG understands this well. With its Galaxy multiplayer service set to launch in the near-future, the company’s decided to give anyone willing to help test it out a free copy of the 2000 classic […]

Google Announces Android 5.0 Lollipop-equipped Nexus 6 Smartphone & Nexus 9 Tablet

Google Nexus 6

A mere day before an anticipated Apple event, Google’s taken the veil off of its much talked-about Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. If memory serves me correctly, this is the first time that Google’s announced a phone and a tablet on the same day, but I’d say it’s a good move since the rumormill surrounding […]

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Logo

When the Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs was first announced, it seemed like it was going to be a console-exclusive. That’s something I believed all the way up until last week, when I visited the Steam store and happened to see it listed front and center. Being a big fan of the game, I couldn’t […]

Alien Isolation Logo

After so many forgettable and atrocious adaptations of such an iconic franchise, Alien: Isolation lands itself in a difficult position. After the bitter taste left by Colonial Marines, faith in the series is at an all-time low. Will developer Creative Assembly finally bring us something that can live up to the name, Alien? The Alien […]

Shadow of Mordor Keeps its Eye on the Prize by Paying for Positive YouTube Videos

What do you expect from a gaming review? Honesty? Objective opinion? Transparency? Something else? Whatever it is, I don’t think that list will likely include the writers lying about the game they’re reviewing, ultimately telling you that you should purchase it even if they don’t truly feel that way. If you’re someone who frequents YouTube channels and thinks […]

Corsair Graphite 730T Chassis - Angle

PC chassis really aren’t that complicated, but it’s so hard to design THE perfect one. It’s really all about the details. In the relatively brief time Corsair’s been selling them, the company has gotten those details right more often than not. Will this trend continue with the Graphite 730T? Read on to find out. PC […]

Adobe’s last major update to its Creative Cloud platform might have dropped just a couple of months ago, but as is now obvious, the company didn’t want to take longer than it had to, to get another out the door. Despite the short timeframe, there’s a lot of cool stuff in this update (especially if […]

VMware Workstation 11 Box Arat

VMware has announced that the next versions of Workstation (11) and Player Pro (7) will drop this December, and by all appearances, there’s enough meat in both of them to warrant an upgrade. As always, VMware has put considerable focus into improving performance in these new versions, but this time around, it’s taken things a […]

New Steam Curator Rules: Participants Must Disclose If They Were Paid

All hail the PC Master Race! Our benevolent masters at Valve have, probably, had enough of #Gamergate and the lack of trust generated between the reader and reviewer. This point of contention puts Valve’s new Curator system into a sticky wicket when Valve isn’t the one making the recommendations. What is a Curator you say? […]
