black ops 3The upside to owning a gaming PC and playing games on the PC is that the graphics quality of the game will depend on the hardware of your PC. If you have a high-end rig you can bump the resolution to 4K and still enjoy a buttery-smooth 60fps, but on console it will have to depend on the hardware used by the console maker, as well as how well developers optimize their game for said hardware.

That being said it’s not all bad news. For gamers who are looking forward to Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and was wondering how it would run on their PlayStation 4, you will be pleased to learn that according to the developer, the game will run at a Full HD 1080p resolution on the PS4 while holding a 60fps framerate, although given that the game is still in development these numbers might change later, but hopefully it won’t.

bb-passport-whiteWhile BlackBerry might not necessarily be equated with being cool these days, there was a point in time when their handsets were selling like hotcakes, largely thanks to its keyboard design which was surprisingly comfortable to use despite its size, and the fact that BBM offered a form of exclusiveness that other platforms could not get in on.

However these days it’s an entirely different story but it seems that the company is working on bringing “cool” back. Speaking at the Milken Institute Global Conference, BlackBerry’s CEO John Chen revealed that the company has “something brewing” that would allow them to make the next “cool” phone.

skyrim_paid_modLast week Valve launched a new feature on Steam that allowed modders to sell their creations. This led to some controversy as some believed that mods should remain as it is which is largely donation-based. Valve’s Gabe Newell then took to Reddit to state that the company would pull the feature if they deemed it was bad for the community.

We assumed this meant that maybe they would let it run for a couple of weeks or months to see how things would pan out. but that did not happen as Valve has officially pulled the plug on the payments feature for its mods. It seems the issue here has to do with Valve underestimating the differences between the communities based around their own games, like Half-Life, Team Fortress, Counter-Strike, and etc., versus that of communities built around other developers’ games, like Skyrim which has it own dedicated modding community.

apple_watch_appsAt the start of the month before the launch of the Apple Watch, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook revealed that over a 1,000 apps had been submitted for the Apple Watch, although like we noted at that time, having an app submitted does not mean that it will be approved and put up for sale/download as there are certain requirements that developers have to meet.

So now with the Apple Watch having been launched, how many apps are there at this point in time? Speaking during Apple’s earnings conference call, Cook revealed that the number has since jumped to a whopping 3,500 apps which have been specifically designed for the Apple Watch in mind.

clarity-1Autocorrect on smartphones usually deals with correcting typos as opposed to grammatical mistakes. This is probably because everyone types/talks differently and trying to correct everyone to the proper grammar might prove to be a monumental task. However it seems that this is something that SwiftKey wants to take on in their latest Clarity keyboard.

The Clarity keyboard is past of SwiftKey’s “Greenhouse” endeavor which is basically an experimental arm of the company where they take on projects that may or may not actually be released to the masses in the future. Clarity would be the first of its many experiments and what the keyboard tries to do is take into context what you’re trying to say before correcting it.

samsung-galaxy-s6-edge_010We have to admit that the “OK Google” feature on Android has to be one of the coolest features on the platform. It’s quick and responsive and seems to be able to understand what we want when we give it commands, but oddly enough it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S6 has decided to omit the feature.

Now we should point out that the feature is still there, but it is only accessible if you were to use it from within the Google search app which kind of defeats the whole point to begin with. This is according to user reports from all around the world where it has been noted that the feature is missing from both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

The folks at Blendtec have over the years blended all sorts of gadgets, ranging from tablets to smartphones, and at one point they even tried to blend the guitar controller from Guitar Hero 3, and successfully we might add!
