borderlandsVideo games for the most part usually feature great stories, interesting characters that have unique looks and traits to them. All of this seems ripe for movies which is why there is a certain appeal in trying to bring video games to the big screen. In fact the latest video game to be adapted to movies will be 2K’s Borderlands.

This was confirmed by the game’s Twitter account and a report from Variety in which it was revealed that Lionsgate will be behind the production of the movie, along with producers Avi and Ari Arad who have been involved in other popular franchises, such as Iron Man, Spider Man, X-Men, Blade, and so on.

appletvThe rumors from earlier this year suggested that we could look forward to an Apple TV refresh at WWDC 2015 in June. However it seems that Apple cancelled those plans at the very last minute, thus giving them more time to work on the device. In fact the most recent rumor had suggested that it will debut in September instead.

Unlike previous refreshes, the latest refresh of the Apple TV is expected to be a rather significant one. We have heard that it will feature a new design, a new remote control that is more advanced, and now according to a new report from TechCrunch, it seems that the Apple TV interface will be getting a major overhaul as well.

apple-tvAccording to the rumors, Apple is said to be getting ready to debut a new Apple TV in September. In fact the Cupertino company has recently sent out invites for an event on the 9th of September which seems to line up pretty nicely with the rumors, and now thanks to what appears to be a leaked memo, those rumors have been further corroborated.

The folks at 9to5Mac have managed to get their hands on a support document that Apple is expected to share on the 9th of September.

google-sign-newSay you’ve got a drain that is clogged, or there are some wiring issues in your home, chances are you might turn to Google to try and search for an available plumber or an electrician. However according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it seems that Google is now trying out a new feature on Google Search where it will connect users directly to handyman.

Basically instead of searching for those around your area and then dialing their number to try and book an appointment, the search results in Google will allow you to directly connect with these professionals and book an appointment online.

huawei-watch-live-1The Huawei Watch is a pretty classy looking smartwatch and it was announced earlier this year at MWC 2015. However five months later and there is still no sight of the device, although we suppose the closest thing has come to a teaser on Huawei’s website in which they said that the watch would be coming soon.

But the question is, how soon is soon? Turns out it could very well be next month when the device is launched. How do we know this? According to several reports, it seems that there has been a sighting on Amazon where the retailer listed the Huawei Watch on its website. The device appeared to be available for pre-order and it seemed to suggest a release on the 2nd of September. Read full post →Huawei Watch Could Be Released Next Month According To Listing


fossil watchLast year Fossil and Intel announced a partnership where both companies would work on wearable technology together, and earlier this month at IDF 2015, Fossil took the wraps off the fruits of their labor in the form of a trio of wearables. Unfortunately apart from showing off the design, not much else was revealed.

That being said, it seems that we might have been clued in to the possible name of Fossil’s wearables. This is according to a recent trademark filing in which the company registered the name “Fossil Q”. The trademark filing makes mention to wearable technology such as smartwatches and “wearable digital electronic devices”, so safe to say that this is a wearable.

archos diamond tabEarlier this week Archos unveiled the Diamond S smartphone. This was a device that was priced rather affordably at around $250, but if you’re after a smartphone but would much prefer a tablet, you’re in luck as Archos has unveiled an affordable tablet as well. Dubbed the Diamond Tab, this Android tablet will only set you back around $275.

So what can you expect to get from a tablet this cheap? For starters despite its $275 price tag, the Archos Diamond Tab is a pretty decently specced tablet. It will feature a 7.9-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2048×1536 which is pretty good. Under the hood, the tablet will be powered by a MediaTek octa-core processor.

This leak is courtesy of Techtastic (via PhoneArena) who has basically quoted the prices of the upcoming phones in Euro. According to their information, the iPhone 6s will be priced at €699 for the 16GB model, €799 for the 64GB model, and €899 for the 128GB model. This will be the same regardless of color.

inboxWhen Google announced Inbox by Gmail, many were surprised that despite Google having plenty of experience with web email clients, oddly enough text formatting in Inbox wasn’t particularly powerful. However we suppose the idea of Inbox is to keep your inbox clean, but we’re sure many users would have appreciated richer text formatting options too.

With that being said, if you’re a frequent Inbox user, you’re in luck. Google has recently announced that they have made some changes to the service and it will now be able to offer up better text formatting options. This includes the ability to create numbered or bulleted lists, write text that is bold, underlined, or in italics, and they will also be able to create links.

gear s2 teaserCome IFA 2015, we expect Samsung will officially detail their upcoming smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S2. Now what we know right now is that there is at least one smartwatch which is the Gear S2, but it seems that Samsung could have at least one more smartwatch and this time it is in the form of the Gear S2 Classic.

This is thanks to a recent trademark filed in South Korea (via SamMobile) in which the name was spotted. Like we said so far Samsung has pretty much only teased the Gear S2 so we’re not sure what exactly the Gear S2 Classic will entail. Could it be that this is a South Korean-only variant which is why it was trademarked in South Korea? Read full post →Samsung Gear S2 Classic Trademarked In South Korea
