Last week Apple sent out invites to the media for an event on March 9th. It goes without saying that the spotlight will be on the Apple Watch, the first truly new product that the company has launched in years, and it still has a lot of information to reveal about the smartwatch. There were whispers previously that perhaps the much rumored Retina MacBook Air might be unveiled at this event as well. A new report published today reiterates those claims and says that the Retina MacBook Air will indeed be shown off at the March 9th event.

ps4-hrdware-large25If there is one thing that I have learned from life, it would be this – records are meant to be broken. Well, the current generation of home consoles do seem to have a very clear winner this time around, and it hails from the Sony camp. We are referring to the Sony PS4, although it has the Xbox One following it closely at one point in time, it has certainly pulled away like the thoroughbred that it is. In fact, a new milestone has been achieved today, where the Sony PS4 has managed to sell over 20.2 million units around the world as of March 1, 2015. This milestone reverberates the fact that Sony is experiencing the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation hardware history to date.

chrome-androidAny software developer worth their salt would definitely find it to be their advantage to introduce updates to existing software from time to time, to say the least. This will not only ensure that the end users end up with something that is current, they would also be able to obtain the best features and keep up with the times. Well, what about legacy versions? Surely support would need to stop at some point in time, and that happens to be the case with Chrome for older versions of Android, as Google has decided to stop issuing updates already.

steamlinkThe folks over at Valve has just made an announcement earlier today, where they have revealed to the world that the very first batch of Steam Machines will be launched later this coming November. This is good news for those who have long looked forward to this particular device, especially when one is given ample notice ahead of its impending release, not to mention the fact that you would have plenty of time to plan your monthly budget in order to save up enough money for one of these puppies when the time comes.

bookeenWhen it comes to mobile devices, tablets and smartphones do seem to control a large portion of the market – which would mean that e-book readers, or eReaders as others call them, do not really have a huge presence. Hence, development in this particular department tends to be slower than normal, but then again, it is to be expected. After all, how many people do you know are voracious eBook readers in the first place? Having said that, Bookeen might have something that you would be interested in, especially if you have more or less moved on to the digital lifestyle by getting most of your reading done using eBooks. It seems that Bookeen will be launching a new eBook reader some time next year that will sport an integrated solar panel, where this would enable you to recharge its internal battery simply by leaving the eReader under the sun, or perhaps in a well-lit area.

shield-nvidiaNVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has recently announced that its Shield range of products would have yet another member – and this will be simply known as “Shield”, and has nothing to do with Marvel’s Avengers superhero team.
