radinnWakeboarding might look like it is a bundle of fun, but do bear in mind that there is a minimum of one limiting factor which you might want to take into consideration – someone out there is required to pilot the boat if you hit the water. Swedish entrepreneurs Alexander Lind and Philip Werner hope to eliminate that side of the sport, and their collective thought processes have resulted in the Radinn electric wakeboard.

lg billboard adSouth Korean consumer electronics giant LG knows that advertising does play a very important role when it comes to “persuading” the masses that their product (or products) are better than what the competition offers, highlighting device strengths while minimizing the weaknesses. Sometimes, just like how TVs and smartphone screens are moving as an industry these days, the “bigger is better” mantra is applied. This particular line of thought has also led LG to erect a humongous billboard advertisement that promotes the LG G3 flagship device over in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Along the way, LG has picked up the gong for this particular billboard being the “largest outdoor advertising structure” – having being certified by the Guinness World Records, too.

notion ink cainAll parents have great hopes for their children, wondering just where all of that potential is going to go to. However, there are times when potential is “wasted” or gone unfulfilled, leaving the set of parents disappointed. I suppose Notion Ink here would play the role of the parent, what with their previous tablet attempts in the form of the Notion Ink Adam as well as the Notion Ink Adam II, where both of them happened to not take off in a big way at all. If at first you don’t succeed, try again, and this is why Notion Ink has come back with a new tablet – the Notion Ink Cain.

nvidia gtx 980After leaking for a number of weeks, the NVIDIA new desktop GPUs have made it to the official list: the Geforce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 980 cards are out and priced respectively at $329 and $549 (MSRP). Both are what’s commonly called “performance kickers”, which means that NVIDIA has worked on key metrics that would make them better products, namely higher performance per dollar, and higher performance per watt, two indispensable data points for anyone who wants something other than “absolute bragging rights (at any price)”. The GeForce GTX 980 is about twice as fast as the GTX 680.

But beyond the pure raw performance expressed as a combination of core throughput and memory bandwidth, NVIDIA is promoting four rendering “features” that it has worked on. None of them are key hardware features, but rather very well polished software features that have a true impact on gaming. Let’s go over the lis Read full post →NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980 + GTX 970: Beyond The Hardware Specs

It looks like the pressure of being the first person in the Australia to pick up an iPhone 6 has gotten into Jack, where in his enthusiasm to open up his brand new iPhone 6 in front of many TV cameras and reporters, he bungled it. Having some difficulty in removing the top cover of the iPhone 6’s box as you can see in the video above, the force of prying it open sent the iPhone 6 slaloming through the air, before the law of gravity kicked in and the sought after handset smacked the ground – hard.

moto x 2014 review 15 640x426I have always maintained the notion that unless something official is mentioned or revealed by a particular company or organization, anything and everything else would remain as rumors, plain and simple. Hence, it is with much trepidation that I bring you word from Motorola Mobility, who used Twitter as the communication medium of choice to inform Sprint customers that they will not be on the receiving end of the spanking new Moto X from Motorola, never mind the fact that the Moto X (2013) was offered by Sprint to the masses when the smartphone was released.

wp781It was exactly one year ago when we reported that Microsoft will be offering support for the Windows Phone 7.8 mobile operating system only until September 9th, 2014. However, it looks as though the folks over at Microsoft are benevolent enough to offer support for the mobile operating system until next month – and that’s it. This means October 14th is the new deadline as to when support for this venerable mobile operating system will cease. It is interesting to note that 19.2% of Windows Phone users are still rocking to Windows Phone 7.8, now how about that as food for thought?

bing search updateEarlier this morning, we talked about how Bing has predicted that Scotland will remain as part of the U.K. after the referendum is over. Well, while you are waiting for the results to be announced, perhaps you might want to make use of Bing and look up some photos and images of William Wallace and Scottish castles. You would have noticed then that Microsoft has introduced a refresh for Bing’s image search, where Microsoft figures out how queries are entered, in addition to the number of images viewed, as well as knowing how far down you would scroll – and are filters in place? All of those information has been consolidated to make the search experience an easier one.
