Since it was first revealed to a friendly group of reporters in January, HoloLens has enjoyed a great wave of positive comments, but depending on one’s own experience with Augmented Reality (AR), each person will have a different take on it.

I always had a huge interest for things related to 3D real-time graphics. A long time ago, I started coding 3D as a hobby in the demoscene, before making it a professional activity for many years. It was pretty awesome. I’ve seen quite a bit of VR and AR contraptions, so I think that I came into this with reasonable expectations based on what I thought is possible with the current technology. Here’s my take on HoloLens. Read full post →Microsoft HoloLens: My Experience



In case you have never hit the email file attachment size limit yet, then you should know that most email providers only allow maximum 10MB file while Yahoo and Gmail offer 20MB and 25MB respectively. For sending documents and sharing some photos, the available size is enough, but what if you need to send something bigger online?

There are many services that will just let you upload bigger files and share it with another person via email, or share a download link with anyone you want. Some services will also let you password protect sent files, so only the person who knows the password will be able to open and download the file.

The process is not that hard, but choosing the right service is very important and we will help you find the right service that fits your needs perfectly. Although, there are many paid services, but we are going to focus on getting the job done in free. However, if your needs are bigger, then you can always opt for their paid service.

rock band 4A couple of months ago the folks at Harmonix confirmed that a new Rock Band game was in the works – Rock Band 4. This is actually an interesting shift as it seemed that these types of games were dead and were no longer as popular as they used to be, but we guess the demand for such titles are still around, hence Rock Band 4.

Now for gamers wondering what the game might look like, you will be pleased to learn that IGN has managed to get their hands on some screenshots of the game and has posted them online. So far we have to say that Rock Band 4 does not appear to be too drastic in terms of a redesign and will share a similar art style to its predecessor.

We’re not sure how many of you guys might remember, but back in the day of the feature phone, Nokia’s handsets came with the Snake game. Now Nokia themselves did not come up with the idea of Snake, but at that time it was hugely popular thanks to the fact that you could play it on mobile devices.

Over the years we’ve seen copies created for modern day smartphones but they just didn’t quite feel the same. The good news is that if you loved the game, you might be interested to learn that the game’s programmer for Nokia devices, Taneli Armando, will be recreating it for smartphones and giving it a much needed update.

fujifilm_x-t1_01Last week we reported that the Fujifilm X-T10 would be announced on the 18th of May and accompanying that report there were some minor specs released. Now thanks to the folks at Digicame-info (via Photo Rumors), additional specs of the upcoming camera have been revealed. Now they should be taken with a grain of salt, but Digicame-info has had a pretty good track record so perhaps some parts of it are believable.

According to the site, the Fujifilm X-T10 will come with a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor. It will feature an ultrasonic sensor cleaning system and will sport a continuous AF tracking system at 8 frames per second. The camera is capable of reaching ISO of up to 51,200 although at such high numbers, chances are it will be too noisy. Read full post →More Fujifilm X-T10 Specs Leak Online


apple watch bandWhen the Apple Watch was launched, there were a selection of bands that users could choose from, but they were pretty much all from Apple. For some this might not be a big deal, for others they might prefer to have more choices. Last week we reported that according to an Apple Watch guide, there was reference made to third-party bands.

Well for users who love choices and customization, you will be pleased to learn that Apple has indeed launched such a program. This program is basically similar to the Made for iPhone program, except that it is called the Made for Apple Watch program but basically third-party manufacturers will have to adhere to certain guidelines in order to receive the certification from Apple.

htc-one-m9-live-2HTC has always put out great smartphones, but unfortunately the company lacks the same branding power as Samsung or Apple, possibly due to the fact that they can’t spend as much in terms of marketing and advertising. However it seems that this year, the HTC One M9 is not doing as well as they should.

During the company’s recent earnings, the company’s revenue dropped by 38.6% which is the worse than the same period last year. In fact the drop also represents the worst April the company has had in the last six years and apparently the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 in the handset is to blame for the phone’s lackluster sales.

apple tv remoteIt has been rumored that a new Apple TV could be in the works and recent shipment slipping times seem to indicate that a launch is nearing. While we can’t confirm with certainty about what kind of features that new Apple TV will bring to the table, a report from The New York Times has revealed that at the very least, Apple will be introducing a new design for its remote control.

The Apple TV remote control is pretty minimal in its design, and it seems that the minimalism will continue, or further expounded on if the report is any accurate. For starters Apple will be introducing a touchpad to the remote, thus allowing users a more smoother way of navigating the set-top box.
