razer-forge-Controller+Box2It was yesterday that Razer announced that they would be acquiring OUYA. However it seems that after the announcement was made, many indies expressed their frustration namely because it seemed to indicate that the funding that OUYA promised indie devs would no longer be paid out.

For those unfamiliar, OUYA had previously promised $1 million in funding that would go out to indie devs to help them create games for the console, but the acquisition of OUYA by Razer effectively killed those deals, or at least that’s what it seemed. However it looks like Razer will be playing the good guy and has recently confirmed that they will be picking up the tab. Read full post →Razer Will Pay What OUYA Owes To Indie Devs



yahoo-logoAccording to a report from Re/code, it seems that Yahoo is planning an event for later this week, although the company has yet to confirm it. It is unclear as to what the company could announce, but they have heard from their sources that it will most likely be related to mobile, although a later tweet by Kara Swisher revealed that it would be a messaging app.

Considering that the messenger market is kind of packed at the moment with so many options to choose from, such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, LINE, WeChat, KakaoTalk, Skype, Viber, BBM, and etc., it would definitely be a tough market for Yahoo to break into since many users would be unwilling to jump ships unless there was a very good reason to.

moto x style 2So the Moto X Style was officially announced today, but it seems that despite that, the folks at DxOMark have actually managed to get their hands on the device ahead of time and conducted several camera tests with it, which surprisingly turned out pretty well because according to the results, the camera performed admirably.

In fact it performed well enough that it outperformed the iPhone 6 and the Sony Xperia Z3+, both of whom were actually ranked pretty high on DxOMark’s previous tests. The phones that it came close to beat was that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge and scored 83 out of 100 which is actually 3 points away from Samsung.

xperia_concept_2About a week ago, Sony announced that they were working on a new Android concept that they would be trialing in Sweden. Shortly after that, some screenshots were posted on Sony’s website that showed off what the company had come up with so far, and now thanks to new screenshots published by Swedroid (via Xperia Blog), we know have a better idea of what Sony’s been up to.

As you can tell right off the bat, the screenshots depict what appears to be a near-vanilla Android experience. In fact upon first glance you might even have mistaken this for the stock version of Android, but we suppose that’s the look and feel that Sony is going for, versus other OEMs such as HTC and Samsung whose UI tends to be heavily customized.

oneplus-2-review-15Usually OEMs aren’t too thrilled if customers were to root their devices or unlock its bootloader, and depending on the OEM, doing those actions can result in your handset’s warranty being voided. However that won’t be the case with the OnePlus 2, according to a report from The Android Soul.

It seems that someone on the XDA forums had gotten in touch with OnePlus with regards to rooting or unlocking of the bootloader on the OnePlus 2, and according to the customer rep they spoke with, your warranty won’t be voided. This is pretty much the same deal with the OnePlus One so we guess it looks like OnePlus won’t be breaking tradition just yet. Read full post →Rooting The OnePlus 2 Won’t Void Its Warranty


moto-360-smartwatch-review-1When the Moto 360 was first announced, it made waves namely because unlike the other smartwatches out there, it was round and had a more traditional design that was decidedly less geeky. Of course since then many manufacturers have followed in Motorola’s footsteps. Now we know Motorola has a new smartwatch in the works, but the question is when will we see it?

Perhaps we won’t have to wait much longer. According to reports, it seems that a smartwatch from Motorola has recently made its way through the FCC. The device is made by Motorola Mobility and under product type it says “Smart Watch”. Given that Motorola only has the Moto 360 and that we’ve seen leaked images, chances are this is the next-gen model. Read full post →Possible Next-Gen Moto 360 Makes Its Way Through The FCC


CDs and DVDs are quite durable, but they also get used quite often, especially, if it is a console game disc. With time, scratches may occur all over the disc making it harder for the player to read data on it.
