heroes-of-the-storm-logoBlizzard has several franchises under their belt and if you can’t decide which to play, Heroes of the Storm sort of solves that problem for you. It is a MOBA that combines characters from Blizzard’s franchises and brings them into a single game. You’ve got characters from StarCraft, Diablo, Warcraft, and even some from Blizzard’s older and lesser-known games.

That being said, exactly how many characters does Blizzard plan on introducing to the game? In an interview with PC Gamer, Blizzard’s Dustin Browder was quoted as saying, “We’re adding them as frequently as we can, and we’re going to keep adding them as frequently as we can, even after launch. What you’re seeing now is not a burst of speed prior to launch. This is the pace that we’re hoping to continue developing at going forward. We’re gonna add game modes, we’re gonna add new heroes, we’re gonna add new battlegrounds.” Read full post →Blizzard Has No Plans Of Slowing Down Heroes Of The Storm Updates

iphone_cydiaiOS users who jailbreak their devices are probably very familiar with Cydia, which is basically where users go to if they are looking for tweaks or apps that might not necessarily have been approved by Apple. What has allowed these tweaks to work is the Cydia Substrate, a low-level software that lets third-party programmers hook into iOS and do things that Apple probably would not have allowed regular developers.

Unfortunately Cydia Substrate is closed-source meaning that it makes it harder for other jailbreak stores to compete with the likes of Cydia. However it seems that this is something that famed iOS developer Comex is hoping to change. Comex has recently announced and released an alternative to the Cydia Substrate called Substitute, which is an open-sourced project in hopes to make it as available to developers as possible.

samsung patentLast year Samsung took the wraps off the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

This act as a secondary display of sorts and can be used to display contextual information, menu buttons, and more.

It is an interesting concept and if the rumors are to be believed, Samsung is looking to release a successor in the form of the Galaxy S Edge. However unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, the S Edge is rumored to feature two curved displays, one on each side, and it looks like Samsung has similar ideas too, thanks to a recently discovered patent by the folks at Patently Mobile.

motorola-keylinkBluetooth dongles and keychains are a pretty common accessory to have that allows users to track misplaced keys or to remind them not to forget their keys when they leave their house. Motorola launched a similar accessory last year in the form of the Motorola Keylink and if you were thinking of getting yourself one and wondered where it went, you can relax.

A number of users have recently expressed their concern as to the disappearance of the Motorola Keylink on Motorola’s website. Many had assumed that Motorola had decided to discontinue the accessory, but it does not seem that way. The folks at Droid-Life have reached out to Motorola who has since confirmed that the removal of the Keylink on their website was simply because the company has run out of inventory.

Samsung-Gear-VR-08As some of you guys have heard, there are some rumblings that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 should be released soon. Given that the update has already been rolled out to the older Samsung Galaxy Note 3, we guess we can’t really blame you guys for feeling a bit disgruntled, so what’s with the hold up?

How does Samsung push out an update for an older device but now a newer one? According to SamMobile’s Faryaab Sheikh, it seems that the Samsung Gear VR virtual reality headset might be the blame. As you might know, the Gear VR relies on the Galaxy Note 4 to act as its display and also takes advantages of the phone’s built-in sensors.

LG_G3_Stylus_500One of the unique features of the Samsung Galaxy Note series is that it comes with the S Pen and has its software optimized and designed around the stylus, giving the stylus more capabilities than just a pointing and writing tool. Back in 2014 we saw LG attempt something similar with a device called the LG G3 Stylus.

The handset wasn’t particularly impressive in terms of hardware and we supposed to a certain extent it was like a low-mid range version of the LG G3. Now according to recent trademark applications, it seems that LG might have something similar planned for their upcoming LG G4 in the form of the LG G4 Stylus.

pirate bay rebirthIt is the 1st of February and you know what that means – The Pirate Bay is now back online! For those who haven’t been following the news, The Pirate Bay’s “.se” domain has been teasing a countdown with a timer to the 1st of February where presumably it meant that the website would be making its way back online, and sure enough it has.

If you were to head on over to the website now, you will realize that the pirate ship logo has since been replaced by the phoenix. We’re not sure if this is permanent or just a temporary design to symbolize its rebirth. So far it seems that the website appears to be fully functional, but as noted by TorrentFreak, the website lacks a moderation panel for the staff.
