hearthstone preorderA little over a week ago, Blizzard announced their next expansion for their Hearthstone card game, The Grand Tournament. Basically this expansion will be centered around the Argent Tournament which you can see and participate for yourself in World of Warcraft’s Icecrown zone, and if you are planning on playing the update, you might be interested to learn that it is now available for pre-order.

That being said, the pre-order is actually more about grabbing booster packs which if you have the time and patience and the skill, you could farm for gold and purchase them that way if you’d rather not spend real-life money. However if you’re a fan of collecting in-game items and whatnot, then perhaps this might be worth pre-ordering. Read full post →Hearthstone’s The Grand Tournament Now Available For Pre-Order

xbox-playstation-wall-e3-2013-bIt is no secret that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is selling better than Microsoft’s Xbox One. It helped that the console was priced cheaper at launch, giving Sony a considerable head start over Microsoft before the Redmond company wised up and decided to slash their prices as well. Unfortunately for Microsoft, it looks like Sony is still in the lead.

According to the recent financial reports from both Sony and Microsoft, it has been revealed that Sony’s PS4 sales are on the rise and are actually double the total amount of units of Xbox One and Xbox 360 unit sold. This is based on the latest quarter which starts from April and runs till June. Read full post →Sony’s PS4 Sales Are Double That Of The Xbox One, Xbox 360

wow expansionA few days ago we reported that Blizzard would be in attendance at Gamescom 2015 where they would be holding a press conference. At that time it was unclear as to what might be announced, but we had speculated it could be a Diablo 3 expansion, especially since the previous expansion was also announced at Gamescom.

However it turns out that won’t be the case. Instead Blizzard has since confirmed that they will be announcing a new World of Warcraft expansion. This is actually something of a surprise especially when you consider that Warlords of Draenor was only released in November 2014. Then again knowing Blizzard’s schedule, chances are this new expansion won’t see a release until 2016. Read full post →New World Of Warcraft Expansion To Be Announced At Gamescom

amazon top gearEver since Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May of Top Gear UK fame left the show, everyone was wondering where they’d go next. All three TV personalities displayed a strong sense of camaraderie when they decided that they would only do a show together or not do it at all.

We have been hearing rumors of where they might end up, with some speculating that they would make their way onto Netflix, while others speculated that they would end up on Sky or iTV. However it looks like all the speculators were wrong because according to a recent tweet by Clarkson himself, it looks like Amazon Instant Video will be their new home.

acer-liquid-m220When it comes to smartphones, Acer isn’t the most well-known brand. They might be known for their computers and displays, but smartphones not so much. However the company might want to change that perception because according to the rumors courtesy of Roland Quandt of Winfutre.de, Acer will be unveiling four new Windows Phone handsets at IFA.

According to Quandt, he claims that Acer will be bringing four Windows Phone handsets to IFA 2015 which takes place in September. Unfortunately not much is known about Acer’s rumored devices, but it will be interesting to see what the company has up their sleeves, although based on what we’ve seen in the past, we doubt we will be seeing a high-end handset.

japan laserWe shudder to think that one day in the future, we could see Death Star-like spaceships helmed by the baddest villains of the universe who go about obliterating planets that don’t bow to them. Actually we might not have to wait too long because over in Japan, scientists in Osaka have recently fired off what can only be described as the world’s most powerful laser.

How powerful are we talking about? The Laser for Fast Ignition Experiment (LFEX) is said to be capable of producing a 2-petawatt laser beam, which just to put it into context, is basically a beam of power equivalent to 1,000 times the world’s total electricity consumption, or so the Japanese scientists claim.

iPad-air-review-5Ever since Apple launched the iPad, it has been pretty tough for other brands to capture the tablet market. Despite the best efforts we’ve seen from the likes of Samsung and Microsoft, Apple’s iPad is still in the lead, and even if you’re not a fan of the tablet, the ubiquity of the iPad is undeniable.

That being said, how are the iPad’s numbers looking recently? Thanks to newly published numbers by the IDC, it seems that the iPad is still in the lead with a market share of 24.5%. However it should be noted that this is actually a 17.9% decline from the previous year where Apple commanded 27.7% of the tablet market.

sony xperia teaserIf the rumors are to be believed, Sony has several new phones in the works, but the good news is that you won’t have to wait much longer to hear about them. Sony has recently posted on Twitter a teaser for an announcement that they will be making on the 3rd of August. Now according to the caption, it has something to do with photography on smartphones.

3d printed cast 3If you’ve ever had the misfortune of wearing a cast, you will know that for the next couple of weeks, expect it to itch and smell terrible. This is because you won’t have access to the rest of your skin meaning it’d be near impossible to scratch that itch, plus the fact that you’re not allowed to get it wet means bathing that area becomes pretty damn hard too.

However this is something that Scott Summit thought should be addressed after he tore a ligament in his arm, which is when he came up with the idea of 3D printing wearable casts. It also helped that Summit is the senior director of functional design at Bespoke, a company that develops prosthetics and braces, so safe to say that is a well-deserved title.
