  • Logitech G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse unboxed [Gallery]

    Logitech has been making some really cutting-edge hardware recently, with the likes of the all-conquering G910 Orion Spark gaming keyboard and the G402 Hyperion Fury gaming mouse. Adding onto the success of these two devices, Logitech launched another contender to the gaming mouse crown called the Logitech G502 Proteus Core. Read more: Logitech G910 Orion Spark review: the best keyboard you’ll ever use Always with the trendy names is Logitech. For starters, the mouse lives up to its changeable name, with a stealthy matte black and shiny plastic design approach. Fit with an oversized thumb rest too for the weary handed, the...

  • LG to unveil four new Android smartphones at MWC 2015

    LG and Android Lollipop has a cute little relationship, with the company’s G3 smartphone being the first to don Google’s new coat of paint, but the company has now announced it plans to launch four new mid-range smartphones that will run Lollipop at next week’s MWC 2015 in Barcelona. The LG Magna, LG Spirit, LG Leon and LG Joy will be the company’s latest mid-range onslaught in a rather difficult to decipher mid-tier market. The phones don’t exactly look mid-range either, with glam akin to the range-topping LG G3. It’s quite easy to like the phone’s exterior aesthetics, and in...

  • HTC One M9 sounds like one hell of a phone, according to new leak

    While Samsung‘s due to launch its new flagship Galaxy S6 on 1 March, HTC will also be in Barcelona following in Samsung’s stead and stealing its spotlight. The Taiwanese company is set to unveil its HTC One M9 to the public on the same day, and thanks to a new gaggle of leaked images and specs we can paint a more vivid picture of the new device. Read more: Samsung Galaxy S6 rumour roundup MobileGeeks spotted the phone listed on a German retail site, and duly rang the alarm bell.

  • Crota’s End soloed, The Order: 1886 cast and H1Z1 peace treaty: this week’s TGIF Video Roundup

    TGIF, and we really shouldn’t be at work, but that won’t stop us from gandering through the week’s best tech, gadget and gaming videos, now will it? We missed a TGIF Video Roundup edition last week to cater for all the sappy lovers out there (and dependable stalkers too). So we have a lot to make up for this week. Luckily, you’re in for a treat. After the infamous six-hour gameplay video playthrough of The Order: 1886 was taken down, we were rather annoyed. Nevertheless, Ready At Dawn has published a new character roundup trailer that takes prospective players through 1886’s...

  • New Nintendo 3DS XL review: pry it from my cold, dead hands

    There were many things that Nintendo got right with the debut 3DS and 3DS XL systems. They were easy to hold, lasted long on a charge and had a plethora of great titles to choose from, but they also had their flaws. One of them was ashamedly highlighted in their name. While the 3D system caused more migraines than good memories, there was also a lack of control nubs modern day console gamers are used to. So the Kyoto gaming giant went back to the drawing board furiously penciling in new, refreshed ideas for its New Nintendo 3DS XL and...

  • BlackBerry Classic is a stately, suave blast from the past [Gallery]

    I’ve been unnecessarily harsh on BlackBerry‘s design team of late, but have been (pleasantly) surprised with the likes of the BlackBerry Passport. Now, new to the company’s alternative arsenal is probably the most BlackBerry-ish BlackBerry of recent years. It’s the spiritual successor to the Bold 9900 appropriately dubbed the “Blackberry Classic.” At this point you might be wondering, “what’s the point?” and for good reason. Why upgrade a phone (or at least, refresh a concept) that was around in 2011? There’s a few good reasons, but we’ll cover that in the Gearburn review coming in the next few weeks. For now, what...

  • Sony’s SmartEyeglass Google Glass competitor is now available for pre-order

    Judging by the number of down votes received on its YouTube ad, Sony‘s attempt at filling that awkward void left by the lack of Google‘s augmented reality glasses seems to be a tough sell. Still, the Japanese electronics giant seems to be going forward while its vision of becoming the next facial computer leader will now be tested with the pre-orders for the SmartEyeglass developer edition device going live 10 March. According to the announcement, Sony also has its eyes set on the future of wearable devices and their diversifying use cases. It’s therefor introducing the product alongside the updated Software...

  • ‘Grim Fandango Remastered’ review: it’s good to be back

    Finally, I can breathe, eat and sleep again. The gripping anticipation is over. A few weeks ago, Grim Fandango: Remastered was released and my world practically stopped for a month. Unfortunately, my prediction of presidential speeches and world celebrations was a bit off. But who cares? This is a day I have been waiting for since I heard that the critically acclaimed point-and-click adventure game will be resurrected in glorious HD. The original Grim Fandango was created by Tim Schafer while he was still working for the late LucasArts game studio, the then leaders of the adventure games genre (1998)....

  • Huawei Ascend Mate7 available for South African pre-order through Cell C

    If you fancy shiny smartphones made in China, then Cell C is probably your best bet this month. The cellular network has announced that the beautiful Huawei Ascend Mate7 phablet will be available to pre-order on its network and will also be available in an exclusive finish Kanye and Kim can duly support — gold. The Dual SIM Amber Gold version is the more lavish version of Huawei‘s flagship, looking to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. From the offset, the deal is available for R449 per month for two years, but includes...
