As we have pointed out many times in the past, more megapixels on a camera does not necessarily translate into better photographs. Understanding how to compose a shot, using lighting to your advantage, and generally having interesting subjects will result in a more entertaining photograph.

However at the same time, we understand the need for megapixels as it does result in slightly more detailed photos, not to mention some professionals need high-res photos for huge print jobs, which a 5MP camera will most probably won’t be able to get the job done. That being said, could a high-resolution Canon camera be on its way? Read full post →High Megapixel Canon EOS Camera Could Still Be In The Works

xbox music 640x252In the past couple of weeks, Microsoft has announced some pretty big changes that they will be making to the company. This includes the likes of dropping the use of Android, and getting rid of feature phones. They also announced they would be laying off as many as 18,000 employees and would also be dropping plans for original shows for the Xbox.

With so many changes being made, we’re sure some of you guys are a little worried about the current services and products Microsoft has to offer. What else could Microsoft be giving the axe? Well there was some doubts over Xbox Music and Xbox Video, but if you’re a fan of either service, you can rest assured knowing that both are here to stay, as confirmed by Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore.

xbox one 640x365A week ago we reported that Microsoft announced that they had seen Xbox One sales double ever since they reduced its price. Exactly how many units they managed to sell remains unclear, although based on NPD’s figures, it wasn’t enough to beat out the likes of Sony for the month of June in the US market.

That being said, Microsoft has recently released their latest earnings for the fourth quarter fiscal year 2014 and based on the numbers they provided in the report, it seems that Microsoft had managed to ship 1.1 million Xbox consoles in Q4 FY 2014. We should note that this is a combination of both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One consoles, and since Microsoft did not break down the numbers, we can’t be sure as to the exact figures of each console.

apple logoWe have heard the rumors that Apple could be planning a mobile payment system of their own. This is hardly new, but according to a new report from The Information, it seems that Apple’s mobile payment system could be launching as soon as this fall, which would coincide with the release of the new iPhone 6 and iOS 8, assuming that Apple keeps to schedule, of course.

The report goes on to state that Apple has been in talks with Visa about a possible partnership that would allow users to use their phone to make payments, thus bypassing third-party payment processors which could in turn save customers money. It has been speculated that features such as Touch ID and the Secure Enclave for the A7 processor will be utilized for this mobile payment system.

xbox oneWe have heard many hilarious stories of how thieves and robbers have managed to get themselves caught simply because they did not know that they were being recorded, and it looks like that has just happened again over in Tenterden Close, Eastbourne. According to a report from The Argus in the UK, this burglary took place on the 1st of April.

A 19 year old Jay Georgiou and an unidentified man broke into the flat of three men, tied them up, and demanded for drugs and money. However little did they know that prior to them breaking in, the people in the flat were enjoying a game of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 online with one of their friends who heard everything over the voice chat.

xperia z3x 640x479Back in 2013, Sony announced the Xperia Z Ultra which was a smartphone that seemed to have blurred the lines between smartphone and tablet, especially with a display sized at 6.4-inches. It was an interesting device to say the least, but could Sony be getting ready to make a come back with a successor, or was the Xperia Z Ultra a one-time thing?

Well according to an alleged leaked rendering (via digi-wo), it seems that a successor could be in the works. The rendering itself appears to be a bit suspect but even in the event that it is proven to be a fake, we guess it would still make for pretty interesting discussion anyway, especially about potential specs for a possible successor.

southwest airlinesDue to the fact that our tweets are public (most of the time), minding what you say can sometimes save you from embarrassment, criticism, and in this case, from being ejected from a plane and refused boarding. That is what happen to a certain Duff Watson who complained about a rude gate agent while boarding a Southwest Airlines flight.

Watson was given boarding priority while his children weren’t, but we guess he did not like the way the agent told him about it where he tweeted (according to his retelling of the story to the local CBS station) “Something to the effect of, ‘Wow, rudest agent in Denver. Kimberly S, gate C39, not happy @SWA.’” Read full post →Man Booted From Plane After Tweeting About Rude Gate Agent

Assassin’s Creed Unity is expected to see a release later this year, and perhaps to celebrate the launch of the game, YouTuber Devin Super Tramphas put together another video of people dressed like assassin’s and performing parkour stunts in the street. Except that this time around instead of using just one assassin, he has used four – Ronnie Shalvis, Simon Nogueira, Yoann Leroux, and Johan Tonnoir.

This seems to be in line with Assassin’s Creed Unity’s co-op mode where up to four players will be able to play alongside each other as a different assassin each. That being said, Devin Super Tramp has released a couple of different Assassin’s Creed themed parkour videos in the past, although safe to say that this is probably one of his more ambitious projects to date.
