  1. I feel like Michael Fisher will get irritated seeing the news; he practically made a video about the Vector watch replacing the Pebble FitBit is either buying out potential competition for a new product or a whole new product line based of smartwatches with long battery lives, assuming that's the reason for buying Vector and Pebble, will be released
  2. In 1933 the world was introduced to a new way of broadcasting audio to the masses that had better quality over AM radio yet was still accessible to listeners which laid the foundations for a boom in the music industry. FM radio is still one of the places many people discover music and this has been the case for years from people listening in the sanctuary of their home to commuters and riders trying to escape from the stresses of traffic. It is now 2017 and many people have streaming services such as Spotify on their devices which gives them access to a massive amount of music from different a
  3. It wasn't long ago when modular phone ideas were a thing of the future, and the future seems to become less interesting and less appreciated. Google abandoned Project Ara after seeing little progress being made in its development and the market is quite frankly not as interested as they would've hoped. LG seems to be waving the white flag as well with their LG G5 seeing abysmal sales figures. I'm personally waiting for what LG has to offer with their G6 even if they ditch the modules though it is sad to see it go so soon. I wonder if they will stick with the design of th
  4. Google has recently taken on ventures that seem to follow the mainstream these days with the emerging technologies Virtual and Augmented Reality as the highlights. Daydream is their take on Virtual Reality which focuses on VRs capability to create new worlds just like well...daydreams and is currently supported by Google's very own phones. Tango on the other hand is their attempt to bring Augmented Reality to the pockets of consumers which was debuted on the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. Well, it now seems that both these technologies will be featured on the ASUS ZenFone AR.
  5. Samsung is currently preparing for CES 2017 with a lineup of monitors aimed at gamers and professionals alike. The monitors are supposedly going to feature curvature and quantum dot technology. The first monitor boasts a 16:9 aspect ratio with 1,800R which isn't a common combination to see; the panel type has yet to be disclosed. The second monitor seems to be aimed at gamers with a 144hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and Freesync capability in mind. The panel is supposedly a Vertical Alignment or VA panel which is quite common w
  6. Microsoft Windows 10 was one of the company's biggest endeavors given how aggressively they pushed customers to upgrade to the new OS through messages within the system which annoyed some to the point that they would file lawsuits. The OS also drew criticism due to its privacy settings which led to many people holding off their upgrades. Microsoft's CMO recently admitted in an interview that they may have pushed the OS too hard. Microsoft tried to explain their side of the red X incident via an article that explained why they chose to do what they did, but man
  7. Cyanogen is known for its version of Android which boasts tons of customization while remaining fluid like Vanilla Android. Its biggest partnership was with OnePlus which made them become largely popular among the Android community. However, just after one device, the OnePlus One, the company had to break its partnership with OnePlus. After years of struggling with bringing the OS to the masses the company has decided to stop its operations. This update means owners of a device that runs the Cyanogen OS — such as the OnePlus One — must now transition over to the
  8. The solar road concept isn't a new idea in fact many have used used its radical idea to attract people to renewable energy sources with promises of surplus amounts of electricity for all. France has opened a one kilometer road that is built on 2,800 square meters of photovoltaic cells which are meant to power its street lights. There are of course more concerns than just the initial cost of building the solar road given that maintenance will probably carry most of the costs over the years because of the cars and trucks that will eventually have to
  9. Super Mario Run has become one of the most downloaded mobile games on iOS with more downloads expected when it's released on Android. Well, Nintendo plans to release more games on the mobile platform with up to three games a year which will include different franchises such as Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem. I personally want to see Nintendo to release more games though this comes with some concerns such as the quality of the work and the price. The former can be addressed by Nintendo making ports for their older titles, but if that's the only thing they do then it woul
  10. Smartwatches and other wearables have seen an increase in popularity though sales aren't as high as the manufacturers have wanted to see. One of the companies to lead the way of introducing these gadgets is Google with its software Android Wear present in most of the smartwatches in the market. An interview by The Verge with Jeff Chang has revealed more about the company's plan to release a flagship smartwatch It should be noted that the smartwatches will not have Google's name nor will it be part of its Pixel line. The watches will instead have the branding
  11. I just hope that they can price it aggressively considering that the current pre-order price being $177. It is a tad cheaper than the i5 6600k though the i5 did perform better in all the benchmarks given that it has more cores to work with. I'm also curious to see as to whether its performance is close to the i5-7400 which has a current pre-order value of $189 which is only a small step above the i3 at hand. We must also consider the fact that the i3 would require more cooling and a capable motherboard which both add to the cost of the overall package.
  12. Holograms are often used in science fiction due to the sheer potential the technology expresses to the users. Companies have recently shown that they're looking towards a future that is making our fantasies reality. BMW teased the technology's presence in the vehicle that they will showcase to the world at CES 2017 The company has had some attempts at renewing and introducing features to vehicles and many of them include displays that can be utilized by the driver which makes holographic touch controls next on their list It w
  13. Fake news has become one of the largest topics of 2016 with hyper-partisan and outright stupid articles spreading among the masses. Many believe that these articles influenced the recent elections around the world and even started creating movements that rely on such material Research from Pew has also shown that many Americans are getting more and more confused, and many of them are can no longer tell whether an article is truthful or not One of the platforms used to spread such news is Facebook who has recently started a push towards stopping fake news from spreading
  14. LG has seen an increasing popularity in the market of displays from phones all the way to jaw-dropping televisions The company has announced that they will showcase new monitors that will surely entice consumers with the latest technologies available The monitors will appear in the next Consumer Electronics Show which will happen from January next year (less than a month away) The first model they would like to introduce is the 32UD99, a 4K HDR IPS monitor with USB-C The company has also stated what specific HDR standard they utilize wh
  15. Marvel vs Capcom is still one of the most well-known and beloved crossovers in gaming with a plethora of characters Capcom has finally revealed that an upcoming sequel titled Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite The game will feature characters from Street Fighter and the Marvel Cinematic Universe which begs the question as to whether X-Men will be included Some features: The gameplay will be a lot like Street Fighter V so it won't have the same gameplay as the previous titles I personally like the Marvel vs Capcom franchis
