best_buy_emailLast year Nintendo announced that they would be releasing a remake of Zelda’s Majora’s Mask for the Nintendo 3DS. We later learnt that there would be a limited edition bundle of the game where a special Skull Kid figurine would be included. For the most part, most of us would just order one unit for ourselves.

However there are some who are enterprising and might order more than one in hopes of reselling it for a higher price down the road. Well it looks like Best Buy has caught on and has reportedly started to cancel some pre-orders for the Limited Edition Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL units. Given that retailers sometimes limit limited edition purchases to one per customer, we guess this hardly comes as a surprise.

minecraft-xboxoneeditionJust last week, roughly 1,800 Minecraft usernames and passwords were leaked in what was suspected to be a hacking incident. For those who are now a little paranoid over the security of Minecraft, you can rest assured because Mojang has come forward to clarify that the incident was not so much a hack, but rather a case of phishing.

For those unfamiliar, phishing is when an attacker tries to disguise themselves as a trustworthy entity in order to glean sensitive information off you. For example phishing could come in the form of emails where the sender could pretend to be from your bank and are asking you for your login details in an attempt to “verify” who you say you are.

apple_logoIn Q1 2015, we expect that Apple could very well release at least two new products – the Apple Watch and the 12-inch MacBook Air. We have heard two separate rumors that the former will be launched in March and the latter will see a general Q1 2015 release, but if you’re still a little skeptical, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has basically “confirmed” it.

Kuo has been known for his pretty accurate predictions regarding Apple’s product lineup and their release timeframes, so there could be some truth in his claims. According to Kuo, he confirms that Apple will indeed be releasing the Apple Watch in March and the upcoming 12-inch MacBook Air later on in the quarter as well, but no specific dates were provided.

If you’re a budding musician looking to record their own music at home, chances are you turn to either free recording software or cheap ones since you’re just starting out. Now you might have heard of more complex and professional recording software such as Pro Tools which is a software used by many famous musicians and producers.

Previously the cost of Pro Tools was too high for amateurs to get in on the action, but you’re in luck because Pro Tools has gone free, sort of. Avid has recently launched a free version of Pro Tools called Pro Tools First. The software is expected to be released in the next few months and it is basically a way for musicians to try out Pro Tools without having to pay for it.

qualcomm-logoAs you might have heard, Samsung could be dropping Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 from its upcoming Galaxy S6 due to overheating issues, or at least that’s what the rumors are saying. However if the newer reports are to be believed, it seems that Qualcomm is working on a fix that will address those issues specifically for Samsung.

Qualcomm is said to be working on a solution for the chip’s heat emissions and that they are expected to provide Samsung with the updated chipsets in March, although we’re not sure if this might be in time for the Galaxy S6 to go on sale. Given that we have heard that the phone will be announced in March, there is a good chance that the early batches of the Galaxy S6 could be pure Exynos, and that the Snapdragon 810 models will be delayed.

google-logo-2011-10-25A couple of weeks ago, we had heard that there was a web security flaw discovered in older Android smartphones. Naturally with the flaw discovered you would have thought that Google would jump on it and issue a fix ASAP, but they didn’t. Understandably some of you guys might be disappointed but Google has since offered an explanation as to why.

According to Google’s Adrian Ludwig, it is apparently not “safe” to patch pre-Android 4.4 versions of WebView, which is basically the framework that allows apps to display websites without the need for a separate browser. Ludwig also points out that the amount of code Google would have to comb through – 5 million lines of code for WebView alone – would take too long.

t-mobile scoreIf you are either a prepaid customer or a customer who has brought their own phone onto T-Mobile’s network and are looking forward to upgrade their phone via the carrier’s JUMP! plan, previously you would be unable to, but it looks like T-Mobile has decided to switch things up. The carrier has recently launched their new SCORE! plan which would allow customers to “score” themselves an upgrade.

Basically T-Mobile’s SCORE! plan is designed to tempt those on prepaid plans or those who paid full retail price for their phone to upgrade their phones early and would only cost them $5 a month. After sticking around for 6 months, customers can look forward to getting their hands on a new phone, although this would include entry level handsets like the T-Mobile Concord II, LG Optimus L90, or the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2.
