  • Samsung premiere to announce new Galaxy and ATIV devices

    Samsung is set to announce new devices for both the ATIV and Galaxy series at the “Premier 2013″ event which has just been announced. Rumors and leaks about what is to be expected points at two new Galaxy phones as well as mobile devices for Windows 8. “GALAXY & ATIV” reads the slogan together with three mysterious pictures to tease. Although speculation, the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini shouldn’t be far off. As the name suggests, this could simply be a smaller version of the Galaxy S4. Another device, the Galaxy Active, is also expected not...

  • New white Nexus 4 photos revealed

    The new and upcoming white Nexus 4 has given us a taste of what is to come. New press photos, showing off the ivory re-make of Google’s popular Nexus 4, indicates that it might get here sooner than we think. These images (as always) are coupled with rumors and speculations, giving us an idea of what this mobile might hold in store for us. We first got wind of the rumored Nexus white, earlier this year. It was later then confirmed and made publicly official at Google’s I/O earlier this month. These photos were originally made available by the popular...

  • 2013: an Xbox One Odyssey

    Software and services no longer, it’s all about devices and services for Microsoft and the new Xbox One from Microsoft showcases the future of computing. The red glowing eye and the dulcet tones of HAL in 2001 a Space Odyssey has finally come to life in the latest console from Microsoft. To call the Xbox One a gaming console is a massive understatement of its abilities as well as being a small reflection of its true power and purpose.

  • New Destiny trailer ‘Law of the Jungle’ crams epic fairytale down our throats

    Activision and Bungie together with Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau are expected to release this prelude trailer of the highly anticipated Destiny console game. We’re expecting to see gameplay 10 June during Sony’s PlayStation E3 press conference. Until then though, we can only dream. But from the creators who brought us Halo and the publishers of Call of Duty, this title is expected to be tear apart the very fabric of the gaming universe… hopefully. The Law of the Jungle, as the trailer is called, opens with actor Giancarlo Esposito (or “Gus” from Breaking Bad). He teaches his son an important...

  • ‘Forza 5′ Xbox One box art revealed in crisp, clear detail

    We know how important aesthetics are to the gamer, so it’s an exciting day as racing title Forza 5 becomes the second Xbox One box art we’ve laid our eyes on. The first box art was for EA’s upcoming shooter, Battlefield 4. The Forza 5 box art is just a hell of a lot clearer than the Battlefield 4 one. The box art comes from Amazon.com’s German site, as Computerandvideogames.com reports. Forza 5 was one of the only non-sport titles to be demoed at the Xbox One launch and the trailer neatly displays the insane new processing power of Microsoft’s upcoming...

  • Google Play Services is the golden child of Android apps

    As I mentioned in my previous post, there was no new version of Android announced at Google I/O this year. I speculated, and suggested why I think they waited with the release of it, but since then I’ve been watching the keynote videos, checking what Android authorities are saying and I must admit, I think I got it slightly wrong previously. I don’t think my reasoning was wrong, but I completely underplayed how important what we got instead of a new version of Android is. The newly announced Google Play Services tackles Android’s biggest criticism, fragmentation, and gives power over...

  • Enter the Dragon: MSI Dragon Edition 2 laptop is the ultimate gaming machine

    MSI is set to launch a new series of gaming laptops. The flagship is called the GT70 Dragon Edition 2 and, as the rumor mill has it, will support Intel’s fourth-gen Haswell processor. As these notebooks are expected to launch right after Computex this June, Intel’s new Haswell processor is reckoned to be their key selling point. Engadget has gone as far as saying the new GT70 is “the first Haswell gaming laptop.” Of this, we can only speculate. The other specs are officially available though, giving the 17.3-inch GT70 Dragon the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX780M. The moola, will already make gamers think twice...

  • HP brings us the Rove 20-inch monster tablet

    HP unveils 20-inch laptop-tablet hybrids and boldly joins the monster-tablet gang, reports PC World. Other members already include Lenovo’s IdeaCentre Horizon and Sony’s Vaio Tap 20. The Envy Rove 20 is the most notable and will host Windows 8 as well as Intel’s much-anticipated fourth-gen Haswell CPU. The price of the Rove 20 is not yet available but we do know that it will ship sometime July 2013. The Rove 20 has 10-finger multi-touch and can be laid flat on its back like you would a tabletop computer. The In-Plane Switching 1080p display technology enables wide viewing angles. This makes it an interesting...

  • WD MyPassport Ultra review: 500GB of speedy, compact pleasures

    People would think I’m mad but I love reviewing hard drives. There is nothing simpler, more efficient and necessary than a hard drive. And Western Digital makes some of the best portable drives you get, such as the My Passport Ultra over here, a 500GB USB 3.0 drive that’s very slim, pleasing on the eye, exceptionally fast and costs only US$79.99. Outside of the Western Digital bloatware, there’s nothing wrong with this drive. So let’s dig into it and see what secrets it holds. Speed machine WD doesn’t promise any speeds on the box so I had to independently test the...

  • LED engagement ring is most romantic gadget of all time

    Ben Kokes had an LED dream for his fiancé. A dream that he could create a glowing diamond ring that only illuminated when he was close to her. From January until now, Kokes tirelessly worked on this– the world’s first “smart” LED engagement ring. We’ll let Kokes sum it up for you before we explain his process: “Once upon a time, a boy met a girl. Then a short amount of time later, the boy decided to design and build a ring for the girl, because doing things in the most complicated way possible is just what he does to show...
