Rumoured Galaxy S IV spotted in Nenamark benchmarking tests

galaxy s IV 1 The much debated but yet to be confirmed Samsung Galaxy S IV has seen plenty of rumours, from specs to release dates. The latest development comes from Nenamark, a benchmark site for the Samsung model SCH-i545 device, with a 1920 x 1080 full-HD display. The Galaxy S III has a similar model number, SCH-i535 which gives the idea that this could have been a new Samsung model tested. Maybe the Galaxy S IV?

Some nut renders 9600×7211 screenshot of FPS-legend Doom

Image of newly-rendered doom Someone with too much time on their hands created this, an insane upscale of a 320x240 screenshot from the original FPS hit Doom, now beefed up to 9600×7211. That’s an image which spans seven PSD files. It took him 35-hours, eight days, and comes complete with fancy lightning and new-age textures and is a sight to behold. Video time. The demon is called “Pinky”, FYI. The barrel is nameless DeviantArt user Elemental79 explains the process, plus the thought behind the creation: This ...

Logitech T620 Touch Mouse review: yet another Windows 8 mouse

Image of the T620 touch mouse To say we weren't completely enamoured with Logitech's earlier M600 Touch Mouse would be a bit of an understatement, so it was with a slight hint of trepidation that we opened the packaging for the touch-responsive Logitech T620 Touch Mouse. We liked what Logitech was attempting with the M600, but a muddled design and cheap feel got in the way. But is the Logitech T620 Touch Mouse any better?

Apple TV review: for those with money to burn

Apple TV I’m lucky enough to own a Samsung Smart TV. I bought it because I believe in converged devices: I want to watch TV and hop in and out of the web and my apps seamlessly. That is our TV experience of the future. Samsung got that right with its Android-based TV OS and is streaks ahead of the competition. Unfortunately Samsung got it right in concept only: the execution of that vision leaves much to be desired, meaning I never used ...

HTC One outed days before official launch

Image of the HTC one in Black Our ever reliable buddies at Evleaks, a Twitter-based rumour-busting account that is usually spot on, have revealed a picture of the HTC One in black. Before we reveal some specs, here’s what it looks like. It kind of reminds of this, the recently launched BlackBerry Z10. Shameful. Anyway, on to the specs and pricing. For US$300 (64GB internal memory) or US$200 (32GB), users can snap up this very Z10-looking HTC One, which according to HTC’s website is under a week away from ...
