Volvo Gets AT&T To Provide HSPA+ In Car ConnectivityWhen one talks about Volvo, great vehicle design is not the first thing that pops into one’s mind, as most of the time, as safety seems to be the major keyword instead. This iconic Swedish automaker has had its fair share of safety features introduced in the past, with the most recent one being an inflatable child seat concept that will hopefully see action in production vehicles soon. This time around, Volvo looks to enhance the in-car experience by signing a multi-year agreement with AT&T for the mobile carrier to deliver in-car connectivity services.

Sony Has Difficulty Meeting Demand For The PS4Earlier today, we did talk about how well the Sony PS4 is doing at the moment worldwide, where the consumer electronics giant has reported that the total sales figure for the Sony PS4 has passed the 7 million mark – and still counting, of course. After all, who are we to argue with a console that actually sold a million units in a matter of 24 hours? Having said that, this is a silver lining in the dark cloud that Sony is in, as the company continues to see its bottom line hit by the decline in TV and camera demands. While sales of the Sony PS4 has been robust to cross the 7 million mark, it does seem as though the company is having trouble meeting the continued strong demand for the next generation video game console.

Heartbleed Attack Results In Stolen Taxpayer DataWe have heard about the Heartbleed bug in recent times, as well as denials by at least one entity (the NSA, no less) concerning knowledge about the existence of such a vulnerability without informing the masses. Well, it seems that there has been a Heartbleed attack that has resulted in a loss of taxpayer data from Canada’s tax agency website. Apparently, a 19-year old Canadian man is the culprit who has been charged by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police .

Back in 2013, Blizzard announced Hearthstone which was basically Blizzard’s take on a collectible card game, except in digital form, and to top things off, the game is free-to-play, so if gamers wanted to buy additional cards or booster packs, they’d have to fork out real-life money instead.

Now the good news is that Blizzard has officially launched the game for the iPad, following its soft launch earlier this month.  The app itself weighs around 500MB in size so you might want to be connected to the WiFi if you want to download it. The app itself is free, like we mentioned, but in-app purchases can range anywhere between $1.99 up to $49.99.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Pre Order Bonuses Includes TF2 Items And DOOM Beta AccessIf there’s one thing that Team Fortress 2 is known for, it would be its hats which gamers can purchase using real money. They’re merely cosmetic items and don’t add to the player’s stats or bonuses, but if you’re the type that cares about aesthetics, then it’s definitely worth taking a look at.

Now the good news is that if you were interested in getting your hands on the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order game, you might be pleased to learn that Valve has sweetened the deal by announcing some pre-order bonuses if you were to pre-order the game via Steam. Gamers who pre-order the game can be expected to receive two items: Die Regime-Panzerung and Der Maschinensoldaten-Helm.

Sometimes fans of games do a pretty good job at recreating the game, whether it be in another medium, creating a cosplay costume, filming a fanmade movie, and etc. For those who are fans of either (or possibly both) Grand Theft Auto V and Metal Gear Solid V, you might be interested to learn that a group of Japanese gamers have come together and re-created the entire Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s 10 minute trailer using Grand Theft Auto V.

When Facebook announced their acquisition of Oculus VR, we’re sure the company was not expecting such a huge amount of backlash for both developers and consumers alike. Oculus VR has reassured gamers that Facebook will be allowing them autonomy and given Facebook’s previous acquisitions such as Instagram, we have no reason to believe Facebook has any intentions of meddling.

In a recent video interview (transcribed by the folks at GameSpot), Oculus VR’s founder, Palmer Luckey, stated that the acquisition by Facebook will make sense to its critics a year from now. “Knowing behind the scenes what’s going on and what we need money to do and what we’re going to be able to do with this deal, I know for myself that it’s the best that we could possibly do.”

It was also later announced in February that Sony had sold 5.3 million units, and here we are a couple of months later where Sony announces that they have passed the 7 million units sold mark.

The Philips W6618 Smartphone Comes With A Whopping 5,300mAh BatterySmartphones these days come with battery sizes ranging anywhere between 2,000mAh to 3,000mAh, with some going slightly over 3,000mAh, and rarely do we see phones whose batteries are of the 4,000mAh battery. At least until the Philips W6618 came along. The phone was recently launched in China and one of its main selling points is its 5,300mAh battery.

Yup, you read that right, the Philips W6618 comes with a battery that is about double the size of your average smartphone and according to the company, is apparently enough to provide users with a stand-by time of more than two months and a talk time of up to 33 hours which we have to admit is mighty impressive.

iOS 8 Could Feature Built In Song Identification Thanks To Shazam [Rumor]Gone are the days when you hear a song on radio or in public and wonder, “What’s the name of that song/Who sang that?” This is thanks to apps such as Shazam and SoundHound that offers the ability to listen to songs and identify them based on their sound waves. However these are third-party apps meaning that users will need to download the app in order to use it.

Now thanks to a report by Bloomberg, it seems that Apple might be interested in making song identification a native feature in iOS 8. The report claims that Apple plans to partner up with Shazam to create a song identification feature that could see itself debut in iOS 8, much like how Yahoo’s Weather and Stock news come preinstalled on iOS devices by default, although we’re not sure what Shazam’s integration will look like.
