If you’re a fan of collectibles and exclusives, you might be interested to learn that if you were to pre-order Fallout 4 on the PlayStation 4, you will have access to the Fallout 4 Garage Theme which you can check out in the video above, courtesy of YouTuber MadMoneyBanks. Basically this will give you a nice Fallout-related theme for the PS4’s UI.

According to the listing on the PlayStation Store, this is only available for those who pre-order the game, so if you’re a huge Fallout fan and want to get your hands on as much content as possible, then maybe you’d like to pre-order the game. Unfortunately the theme itself is pretty static as it is more or less a background image. Read full post →Fallout 4 Garage Theme Available For PS4 Pre-Orders



europe-flagWhile Europe shares a common currency, not everything is priced the same. For example a game you buy on Steam in Germany might be priced differently compared to if you were to buy it if you were in Italy. However the discrepancy in pricings might so go the way of the dinosaur if the European Commission has their way.

According to a report from MCV, it seems that the Commission is currently proposing implementing a flat price on digital goods across the EU. This means that digital products such as games you purchase from Steam, the PlayStation Store, or Xbox Live will be subject to the same price, regardless of which EU country you live in.

windows 10 market shareA couple of days ago, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 has been installed on over 14 million devices which is a pretty impressive figure, but in terms of overall market share, exactly how much does that 14 million and more represent? The folks at Statcounter (via WMPoweruser) have the figures and the numbers are pretty encouraging.

As you can see in the graph above, Windows 10 is currently on a pretty steady rise and actually accounts for 2.47% of the entire OS market. Now some of you might think that 2.47% is only a fraction of the market, but as you can see in the graph it is climbing pretty quickly. In fact despite it being less than a week old, Windows 10 has since outpaced Windows Vista, Chrome OS, and Linux. Read full post →Windows 10 Now Has 2.47% Of The OS Market


samsung logo 5It would seem that despite the changes that Samsung has brought to the table with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, sales of either devices haven’t been going too well, so much so that Samsung was forced to adjust the prices in order to keep the momentum going. Unfortunately it looks like their troubles will not be helped by the Russian market.

According to a report from Bloomberg, it seems that over in Russia, several carriers and retailers have decided that they would stop buying Samsung’s smartphones. Apparently this is due to concerns over defective units and disagreements about repair guarantees. While defective units are to be expected every now and then, it seems that the percentage of Samsung is a bit too high for some.

density sensorAs fun as bars are for friends to meet up and hangout, sometimes it gets a bit too crowded which in turn kind of ruins the experience. Having no place to move, lining up for the bathroom, people bumping and spilling drinks on you, and so on can quickly lead to a bad night. This is where the Density sensor comes into play.

The Density sensor is a tiny sensor that anyone can setup in their home, office, restaurant, bar, club, and etc. Basically it’s a break beam sensor similar the one used by elevators and automated doors, but thanks to its pairing with an app, it turns it into a much more functional and feature-rich device.
