NVIDIA’s much-anticipated mid-range 900 series card is here. It’s called the GeForce GTX 960 (no need to act surprised) and it brings a couple of surprises. As NVIDIA’s “sweet spot” GPU, the GTX 960 is designed to be an affordable option that lasts the long haul, so let’s see what the green…..
Let’s face a fundamental truth here: Gaming gear is often expensive. Whether it’s that outrageously styled chassis, or that all-singing-and-dancing mouse with all the bells, whistles, and air horns, being a hardcore gamer would probably make your wallet wail like a banshee. Thank goodness, though, that there is still gamers’ gear available…..
Where social media is concerned, I have an almost innumerable number of pet peeves, but some do stand out more than the others. Such as people sharing misinformation that should raise red flags right away, as well as the sharing of hoaxes. Well, it seems that Facebook itself doesn’t care too much about…..
CHERRY is famous for providing the most popular mechanical keyboard switches around, but did you know the company also manufactures its own line of mice and keyboards? In our lab is the company’s MX-Board 3.0, equipped with MX Brown switches. Let’s find out how interesting – or uninteresting – this plank is.…..
It appears that given the proper circumstance, Steam’s Linux client could wipe out a person’s entire home folder. At this point, it doesn’t appear that Valve has acknowledged that the bug exists, but it is looking into it. Talk of the bug began over at Github, where user keyvin noted that they…..
On account of the fact that “Uber” is a thing, I guess we need to start calling anything that follows a similar service mechanism “Uber-esque”. So, we’ll do just that with Booking Now, a brand-new Apple App Store app that appeals to those who fail to plan prior to passage. Website Booking.com…..
It’s hard to ignore the value proposition Amazon gives us when it comes to affordable tablets. Its Fire HD series has some notable caveats, but its hardware is often good for the price. And, for those invested in Amazon’s ecosystem, there’s no better fine-tuned option. With that, let’s check out what the…..
Given the mobile releases we’ve seen from Adobe these past few years, it’s felt like the company hasn’t cared too much about Android at all. This past October, I took an in-depth look at the mobile apps that came with Creative Cloud’s latest major update – not a single one of them were being made…..
Since its release late last year, GoPro’s HERO4 camera has had a great reception – and it’s not much of a surprise. Who doesn’t like the sound of 4K @ 30 FPS? Or 1440p @ 80? Well, soon, there will be another reason to get excited about the HERO4: live-streaming. In case…..
Back in November, just ten days after the release of Google’s ‘Lollipop’ Android OS, NVIDIA announced that it’d be bringing the OS to its high-end SHIELD Tablet a week later. For a company that has just a couple of its own mobile devices, that’s rather ambitious, but without a hitch, it came…..
As we made clear last week, CES can bring an overwhelming number of product announcements, and while that’s sometimes rough as a consumer, it’s even worse for companies trying to stand out. It’s for that reason that some companies decide to wait until after CES to announce a certain product, and that’s…..
I have long been impressed with Google’s Translate app for its ease and overall usefulness, but at the next update, things are going to be taken a step further – some have even compared it to “Star Trek“-like technology. One of the long-term goals of Google’s Translate service has to be to…..
Mice – there is never a shortage of options in the gaming market. They range from $10, to well over $100 – some are a tremendous value, some are not. COUGAR is no stranger to this market and have put its best foot forward with the 700M Gaming Mouse. How did it…..
In what can be called some of the most common and boring news in the tech world for most people to read, a new bug has been discovered in one of the world’s most commonly used OSes. For once, Microsoft is off the hook – the bug is actually a flaw in…..
G.SKILL has sent word that overclocker Shamo has managed to set a new record with one of its 4GB DDR4-based Ripjaw 4 modules. Also part of the test platform was Intel’s eight-core 5960X processor and ASUS’ Rampage V Extreme motherboard. Sticking to just one DIMM, Shamo was able to hit a staggering…..
2015 is fixing to be a huge year for Honda. First the company is returning to Formula 1 as engine supplier to its old partner, Team McLaren. Back in the late 1980s, the McLaren-Honda alliance dominated F1, winning forty-four Grands Prix and four Constructors’ and four Drivers’ World Championships from 1988-1992. In…..
The USA isn’t really known as one of the world’s cradles for supercars. People think of Italy, Germany, the UK, even Sweden, as countries that produce legit hyper-performance cars. Well, Ford wants to shift people’s thinking. The Dearborn company introduced its new GT at the Detroit Auto Show. The new GT is an…..
2015’s CES is over, but before we wrap-up our coverage, we want to hand out some virtual awards to the products that stood out to us the most. After spending the weekend mulling the contestants, we’ve come up with 11 that we feel fit the bill as being the best of show.…..
Antec’s presence at CES 2015 may be, in this writer’s opinion, a bit muted than most, but the company does have a few things to show and talk about at this year’s show. It showed off a few chassis, including the P70 for entry-level users, the compact P50 for mATX and smaller systems, and…..
They say good things tend to happen in threes, and we’ve seen this at CES this year. ASUS announced not just one, but two trios of new gaming-oriented products. Thermaltake did, as well. Well, add the good folks at Mad Catz to the list of companies introducing new gear in a group…..
It’s not often that I feel compelled to call a mere router a “monster”, but I think it’s an apt description of TRENDnet’s just-announced “AC3200 Tri Band”. In fact, this router is more like a three-in-one, with two separate AC 1300Mbps radios placed alongside an N 600Mbps one. “AC3200″ = 1300Mbps +…..
Mushkin has been no stranger to SSDs since the introduction of the Callisto way back in 2010, and once again it looks to be updating its product portfolio. Gone are the days of 2nd Gen SandForce; instead, Mushkin is adopting the new Phison S10 controller. The Phison S10 is a quad-core, 8-channel…..
For fans of low-power or small form-factor PCs, the world just became a more awesome place. At CES this week, Intel showed off its new “Compute Stick” line of computers – small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, powerful enough to run a real OS. Intel’s new device is not…..
If you think that PC air cooling is an antiquated, inefficient method of keeping temperatures down, you might want to listen to what US-based CoolChip Technologies has in store for the cooling market. At CES, it is showcasing a prototype of its 1U cooler that uses “Kinetic Cooling Technology”. The cooler has…..
Just about everyone is announcing new SSDs at CES 2015 and Crucial is no exception with two new product families expected to reach the market later this quarter. First up is the MX200, which just so happens to be the consumer variant of the Micron M600 that debuted last September. Like the…..
