world of warcraft 640x400Gamers who have played World of Warcraft can probably attest to the fact that the game is highly addictive. For many gamers the reasons as to why they are addicted to the World of Warcraft will vary from gamer to gamer. For some, the addiction comes from being able to play with friends, and for others it could be the storyline, and for some it could be because they’re competitive when it comes to gathering loot.

However outsiders might not necessarily have the same view of the game, calling it a waste of time and are unable to see why some people are addicted to a mere video game. Well according to a Manhattan College professor of religious studies, Robert Geraci, he believes that Blizzard’s World of Warcraft represents more than just a video game, and to a certain extent can provide some kind of religious experience as well.

free with goldLet’s face it, there are some video game trailers, descriptions, photos, and reviews which makes games seem more fun than they really are.

galaxy s5 4gpSamsung has a few variants of the Samsung Galaxy S5 handset depending on which market they are selling the phone in. For example in South Korea, the company unveiled the Galaxy S5 LTE-A which is basically the same phone with LTE-A capabilities and a QHD display (jealous!), and now it looks like they will be unveiling yet another variant, except that this time it will be aimed at the Singaporean market.

According to Samsung, they will be launch the Samsung Galaxy S5 4G+ in Singapore. Just like the South Korean model, this model will also support LTE-A and will play nicely on local carrier SingTel’s 300Mbps LTE-A pipeline. However the difference is that the Singaporean model will not pack a QHD display which is unfortunate, but if you’d rather have faster internet speeds, then we guess it’s a fair trade off.

firephone display 640x462A few months ago, Amazon finally took the wraps off the Fire Phone. Given that the rumors of an Amazon smartphone have been floating about for a while now, safe to say that many were eager to see what Amazon had to offer. Unfortunately it seems that despite all the features that Amazon has offered, the Fire Phone isn’t quite catching on as well as they had thought.

According to recent figures revealed by research firm Chitika Insights, it seems that out of the tens of millions of ad views across 350,000 websites, the traffic generated from the Fire Phone only account for a mere 0.02%. You might argue that the phone is still relatively new and that perhaps traffic could increase in time, and while that is true, it certainly does not hold the same for the LG G3.
