cod_black_ops_3The way missions in games work is that when you complete one, you get to move onto the next one, and so on. For the most part they tend to be progressive in nature meaning that it gets harder and more complex as you move forward and it usually advances the storyline too. That being said, Treyarch will be doing things differently with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

Speaking to Eurogamer, the developers revealed that right off the bat, gamers will be able to access all of the game’s missions. This means that if you feel like it, you could technically play the final mission first, although we reckon that this would kind of spoil your fun and might ruin the story in the process, but at least you have the option of doing so.

3d printed prostheticsUnless you are an amputee, we really have no idea what it would be like to lose an arm. Making it even worse is when you are young and you just can’t comprehend what is going on. However to help make the process a bit more bearable, Open Bionics has recently announced that they will be 3D printing prosthetic hands featuring popular characters from Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney.

As you can see in the image above, some examples that they have chosen include the hands of Iron Man, the sparkly gloves of Elsa from the Frozen animated movie, and one more from the Star Wars franchise. However these hands won’t actually be able to fire of laser beams or give incredible strength (or magical powers for that matter), but hopefully it will help kids see the silver lining in their tragedy.

pepsiA couple of days ago a somewhat suspect rumor popped up online suggesting that Coca-Cola’s chief rival, Pepsi, would be launching a smartphone of their own. We know, it sounds really bizarre but as it turns out, the rumors were actually spot on. The company has since confirmed to Reuters that they are planning to launch mobile phones.

However before you start wondering what’s Pepsi thinking, it’s not as strange as you might think. This is merely a licensing deal, meaning that Pepsi will be officially allowing their partners to use their brand to market mobile phones and accessories. This is more believable than Pepsi actually making and designing their own phones. Read full post →Pepsi Confirms Plans To Launch Mobile Phones In China

ubsifoft-apologyThere are times when one needs to own up to one’s mistake, as that is the right thing to do – otherwise denials would end up as more egg on one’s face .Thankfully, the folks over at Ubisoft ended up doing the right thing as they apologized for the cool looking collector’s edition of Might and Magic Heroes VII. Why the apology? Well, promises were not fulfilled. Ubisoft showed off a DVD case from the collector’s edition unboxing on Twitch, where they also listed the collector’s edition as being available for the PC with the standard edition being mentioned of as a “PC download” in clearly explicit terms. However, North American gamers who placed an order did not see any disc, but ended up with a download code instead – while the DVD case’s slot in the box was clearly empty.

Samsung-vs-TSMC-iPhone-6S.001Ever since it was discovered that the new iPhones came with different-sized chipsets and had very big differences in its battery life, people have been referring to it as “batterygate”, 2015’s iPhone controversy. Apple has since come forward and claimed that the real-world performance is very different, and that it will feature a 2-3% difference unlike what the benchmarks claim.

We suppose that’s what Apple would claim, right? So was it all just a PR cover-up or was Apple really telling the truth? According to the folks at ArsTechnica, Apple was actually right, or at least they came pretty close. After Apple released their statement, ArsTechnica ran new benchmarks to find out if Apple’s claims were true. Read full post →New Benchmarks Confirms 2-3% Battery Difference In Apple’s A9 Chipset

microsoft_dialer_androidWhile the Windows Phone platform certainly cannot boast the same number of apps compared to iOS and Android, instead of trying to court developers as they have done in the past, Microsoft’s new approach is to try and introduce as many of their products and services onto competing platforms in hopes that they will be compelling enough to jump ship.

According to a report from Gadgets 360, it seems that Microsoft has a new Android app in the works which comes in the form of a dialer. Basically this dialer app is meant to do is offer a replacement dialer for Android, but in this case as you can see in the screenshot above, it could possibly be integrated with Skype which is what the report from Gadgets 360 seems to suggest.

It seems that we are making strides towards developing a digital persona of ourselves, and who knows, one day the pipe dream of being able to translate our consciousness into a computer might be possible – which would mean that one is able to live for virtually forever.
