world of warcraft 640x400World of Warcraft players come from all over the world, which also means that in some parts of the world, the amount of lag players experience will differ from those living in the US or in Europe where some of Blizzard’s servers are located at. Now the good news is that after what seemed like forever, Blizzard has finally announced that they will be deploying new servers to cater to the Australian and New Zealand market.

This should ultimately mean that gamers living in those regions or who are playing close to those regions will experience smoother gameplay. “Players currently on an Oceanic realm—Barthilas, Frostmourne, Thaurissan, Saurfang, Caelestrasz, Jubei’Thos, Khaz’goroth, Aman’Thul, Nagrand, Dath’Remar, Dreadmaul, and Gundrak—should automatically experience improved latency once the new game servers go live.” Read full post →Blizzard Launches Australian World Of Warcraft Servers

Boiling water is a pretty straightfoward process. You can choose to heat up the water by sticking it into the microwave, you could boil it over a stove, or you could use an electric kettle. However it seems that Danish design studio Chudy and Grase have decided to reinvent the kettle, giving it a more minimalist and simple design.

Dubbed “Miito”, it’s basically where users can place their cup or container over an induction base, and through the use of a magnetic rod which they stick into the cup, the water or your drink inside will come to a boil with the heat being conducted via the rod itself. It’s an interesting design and it’s great if you’re trying to heat up a specific amount of liquid. Read full post →Miito Introduces A New Way Of Boiling Water

That might be true, but at the same time they are incredibly portable which makes them great if you’re going on a trip.

That being said, the folks at Bang & Olufsen have recently taken the wraps off the BeoPlay A2. These are the company’s first Bluetooth speakers which is interesting given that the company has been known for their high-end home theater systems, and surprisingly they cost around $399/€350/£299 which is less than what we had initially thought.

fastest internet 640x640There’s a quote which says, “Nothing is certain except for death and taxes.” For the most part this is true as people around the world are being taxed by their governments for all sorts of things. Sales tax, service tax, import/export taxes, income tax, and interestingly enough in Hungary, internet tax.

The Hungarian government has recently proposed a bill which could see the implementation of internet tax come 2015. The idea is to tax data transfers which would see internet service providers pay as much as 150 forints (around $0.60) per gigabyte of data transferred, although the “good news” is that it will allow for companies to offset corporate income tax at the same time.
