sony ps4In case you didn’t already know about your PS4 console, the device comes with an 8-core processor. However only 6 out of those 8 cores are made available to games while the remaining two cores are used to power the operating system of the console. For the most part this doesn’t really affect gamers as the PS4 is pretty powerful enough to begin with.

However according to reports, it seems that a group of developers have discovered that Sony might have recently “unlocked” one additional core. This means that developers will have one extra core to work with. It is unclear as to why Sony did not do this at the start, but perhaps the company was just being careful so that at launch, the console and not just its games would run smoothly.

att-signIt seems that everything just got a bit more expensive. It was recently that carriers such as Verizon and T-Mobile announced that they would be raising the prices of their unlimited data plans, and if you are on AT&T’s network and you’re feeling a bit relieved that the carrier did not raise their prices, you might be disappointed.

AT&T has recently confirmed that they will be raising the prices of their grandfathered unlimited data plan. Prior to this, it only cost customers $30 a month, but AT&T has since hiked the price up by $5 and will now cost $35 for customers every month. Granted it’s not a very big change in price, but it’s one that customers should pay attention to all the same. Read full post →AT&T Raises Prices Of Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plan

Oculus-Rift-5Earlier this year Oculus VR took the wraps off the consumer version of the Oculus Rift headset. Unfortunately in terms of pricing and a specific release date, those are still details that are still pretty much left up in the air.

samsung-nx1100-manualThere has been rumors suggesting that Samsung could be exiting the digital camera market. After all the company had recently exited from the German market, so we wouldn’t really be surprised if other countries were to follow suit. However according to a new rumor, it seems that Samsung has some kind of major camera announcement to make at CES 2016.

CES 2016 will be taking place early next year in January. This is an event in which many companies tend to make major product announcements, so we have to wonder if this announcement is to announce that they are planning to exit the digital camera market, or if they’re coming back in full force with some kind of revolutionary camera.

Romain-Jerome-Super-Mario-Bros-watchWhen it comes to watches, really good mechanical timepieces will set you back a small fortune, but most of the time this can be justified as the majority of these timepieces are considered to be investments that could last generations, as long as they are properly maintained.

If you don’t live in Japan, chances are the idea that a turtle could potentially disrupt train schedules might never occur to you. However it seems that in Japan, that is a problem and between 2002 to 2014, Asahi Shimbun reports that turtles were responsible for 13 train disruptions in Kyoto and Nara.

For a country who prides themselves in their to-the-dot punctuality when it comes to public transport, safe to say that this is an issue. However it seems that officials from the West Japan Railway Company and Suma Aqualife Park have come up with an ingenious way to protect these turtles without having to divert trains around them.
