sony a77 II  alpha a77 III  03 640x558Back in the day when photographers wanted a more advanced camera, they’d have to turn to an SLR or DSLR camera. However in today’s day and age, photographers have the option of turning to mirrorless cameras which are smaller, lighter, and possibly cheaper than their DSLR counterparts.

In fact there are several professional photographers who have sworn and made the full switch to mirrorless since. Given that Sony has recently released their full frame mirrorless cameras, it is understandable why. So what does that mean for Sony? Could they possibly be thinking about moving more towards mirrorless cameras in the future? Read full post →Sony To Keep Developing Both A-Mount And E-Mount Systems

The studio behind the game has made great strides in terms of improving the gameplay and graphics with every release, and safe to say that many are looking forward to the next installment of the game – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

mkx controllerDifferent games can be played with different types of controllers. For example FPS gamers can choose to play using the keyboard and mouse, or by using a gamepad. Arcade fighting games can also be played using the gamepad, although there are some who swear that using fight sticks feels more authentic and handles better.

We suppose at the end of the day it really boils down to your personal preference. That being said, if you’re looking forward to the upcoming Mortal Kombat X, you might be interested to learn that there could be a custom Mortal Kombat X controller in the works. This is thanks to a photo snapped by Alex Jebailey, the community manager for Iron Galaxy Studios, who spotted the controller at the GameStop EXPO last week.

google logo 2011 10 25Google might have started out as a humble search engine, but over the years, the company has expanded and evolved and are now known for many things. This includes providing online services like email, researching how to provide the whole world with internet, building self-driving cars, and more just to name a few.

However it seems that Google’s CEO Larry Page has decided that maybe Google itself isn’t big enough to handle all of that, and according to a report from The Information, Page has started up a project within Google called Google 2.0. This project has reportedly been started about a year ago and with Google 2.0, Page is hoping to explore some of the challenges faced by humanity today.

ios 8 iphone 4s 640x197So iOS 8 is here and we guess one of the good things to using iOS devices is that for the most part, Apple tends to support older devices with major OS revisions for years after, which is good news for those who might be holding back on updating just yet. However it seems that if you are still a proud owner of the iPhone 4S, you might want to hold off on updating to iOS 8 for now.

Why is this, you ask? While your device will technically be able to run iOS 8, the folks at ArsTechnica have done some testing and they found out that the end result might not necessarily be a good one. As you can see in the chart above, it shows that with iOS 8 installed, launching time of apps has slowed down somewhat. Read full post →iOS 8 On The iPhone 4S Might Not Be Ideal

Samsung SM A500 640x390About a week ago, we reported that Samsung had a new handset in the works that went by the model number SM-A500. Based on the model it is presumably part of Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha series of handsets and thanks to China’s TENAA (the country’s equivalent of the FCC), photos of the upcoming handset have been revealed.

The images reveal just how thin the SM-A500 with its thickness measured at 6.7mm, thus making it as thin as the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. However based on its design, it seems that Samsung has made some revisions to the overall design and it does not sport the weird grooves at the side which is what the Galaxy Alpha had.

ios 8 640x426Are you thinking about updating your iOS device to iOS 8 that was released just yesterday? Well if you’re still thinking if the update is worth it, you might be pleased to learn that for those who value privacy, iOS 8 could be worth updating to. Why is that, you ask? Well apparently in iOS 8, Apple has changed the way that they are encrypting your data.

The company has recently revealed via its website (via Gizmodo) that they are no longer able to bypass a user’s passcode, meaning that if and when law enforcement asks them to turn over your data, they will be unable to access your data, thus resulting in the search warrant being somewhat moot.
