windows 10 market shareIn terms of adoption, it looks like Microsoft has done something right with Windows 10 because according to the latest figures via NetMarketShare, it seems that Windows 10 is now accounting for more than 5% of the desktop market. To be specific, Windows 10 at this time of writing holds a 5.21% market share.

This is very impressive especially if you were consider that it was only last month that Windows 10 had 2.47% of the market. However we should note that these two stats were recorded by different companies so their data gathering might be a bit different, but overall it certainly does seem to indicate that Windows 10’s adoption is on the rise.

macbookLast week we reported that British scientists have outfitted an iPhone with a prototype hydrogen fuel cell battery that allowed the phone to last a week before needing charging. That is very impressive, but could that technology be taken and applied to laptops as well? It turns out that Apple has had a similar idea.

A recently discovered patent filed by Apple has revealed that the Cupertino company is exploring a fuel cell system for the MacBook. The goal? To allow the laptop to be used without the need to be plugged into power for days or even weeks on end. Safe to say that this system would allow users to bring their laptops with them even on travel without worrying about battery life. Read full post →Apple Patent Wants Your MacBook To Last You Weeks

Earlier this March, the BBC did share their plans with the rest of the world that they will be working on a Grand Theft Auto feature length drama, which obviously drew some ire from Rockstar, the game’s developer, as they subsequently sought to block such a move from happening. Rockstar had since decided to proceed with legal action against the BBC, citing that “our trademarks are not misused”. Such a legal issue has not been resolved to date, but the BBC has proceeded by revealing a trailer for the upcoming feature-length TV show known as The Gamechangers.

Earlier today, we did bring you word that Google’s Street View has now launched as a standalone app – which would work great for travelers and backpackers alike, although it is not going to come in handy when you are right smack in the middle of the jungle without any kind of signal to begin with. Cats have dominated the Internet for long enough, and here we are with a unique play on Street View, where it is known as Cat Street View, and as its name suggests, you can tour a town in Japan’s Hiroshima prefecture.

When it comes to video games, there are some titles which are broken – simply because there is a glitch or flaw that provides an unfair advantage to the person using it. For instance, in Capcom’s Marvel Superheroes arcade game, there is the infinity combo which will allow you to decimate your opponent without having a chance to fight back, although it will require the aggressive party to have perfect timing. In Street Fighter 5, pro wrestler Rainbow Mika might be the most popular combatant – not because of her physical make up, but her ability to deliver a one-hit knockout – or close to that.

Multi-tasking is no longer a buzzword that you throw around in order to look as though you are in the know – we are expected to be multi-taskers these days, and not to be that can be considered anathema in the working world. Well, in order to do so, the kind of tools that we use too, would have to be able to keep up with the times. Logitech knows this, which is why they have revealed the Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard and the Logitech M535 Bluetooth Mouse, where you can check out the video of the former above, and a video of the latter right after the jump.

wacom bamboo sparkAs efficient as it is to type up notes, there’s something about the pen and paper that is a bit too traditional to completely give up on. After all using a pen and paper allows you to make notes and draw up diagrams quickly and easily, versus a computer where you might have to launch tools in order to do that.

Now if you’re after a solution that will be able to digitally record your pen scribbles, you might be interested in the Wacom Bamboo Spark.

One of the problems with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is that there have been many reports of it overheating. We ourselves have not encountered any of these issues during our reviews of Snapdragon 810 devices, but it seems that it was a big enough problem where Japanese carrier NTT DOCOMO had to warn users about it.

One of the affected handsets was the Xperia Z4 and with the Sony Xperia Z5 using the same chipset, many were worried that overheating would be a problem for the phone as well.
