gear-circleIt seems that Samsung was pretty busy yesterday because not only did they officially unveiled a new smartwatch in the form of the Samsung Gear S, but they also took the wraps off a new pair of headphones that they have dubbed the Samsung Gear Circle. While the headphones themselves might look pretty normal, it does come with a nifty feature that some of you guys might appreciate.

Thanks to a built-in magnetic clasp, the headphones can be joined together at the edges and be worn as a necklace around your neck. We suppose on one hand you could always try and accessorize your outfit with it, but we reckon it’s more for convenience where instead of stuffing the headphones in your pocket or bag, or have them dangling, clasping them around your neck seems like a much neater solution.

iphone 6 simWhen it comes to color options for the iPhone, Apple finally introduced a new color with the iPhone 5s with the gold finish, which was surprisingly not as gaudy as we had initially imagined and proved to be quite a hit amongst certain groups of customers. That being said with the upcoming iPhone 6, could Apple introduce a new color to the mix?

Well for those who are hoping that Apple doesn’t get too colorful with their iPhones, you can breathe a sigh of relief because thanks to newly leaked photos, it looks like Apple will be keeping the same colors as the iPhone 5s, which is silver, gray, and gold. This is thanks to the leaked photos which shows off the alleged SIM trays belonging to the iPhone 6. Read full post →Leaked iPhone 6 SIM Trays “Confirm” Silver, Gray, Gold Color Options


Earlier this month it was revealed that 2K Games would finally be bringing the BioShock universe to iOS devices. Well the good news for BioShock fans who are looking to relive their BioShock moments on their iPhone or iPad is that the game has been officially released and is available for download via the iTunes App Store.

Unfortunately if you were hoping that the game would be priced like a mobile game, think again. The developers have slapped a somewhat hefty (hefty as far as mobile games are concerned) price tag of $14.99 on it. Also due to the somewhat graphically intensive nature of the game, it will not be compatible on older devices like the iPhone 4S or below, third-gen iPad or below, first-generation iPad mini and the iPod touch.

nokia-z-launcher-androidWhile Microsoft might have officially put an end to Nokia’s Android plans, the other Nokia continues to support Android in their way own – in the form of the Z Launcher. For those who are unfamiliar with the Z Launcher, it’s basically a launcher that Nokia designed for Android devices.

There are plenty of launchers already available in the market today but we guess by throwing Nokia’s name behind the Z Launcher, it has given it a bit of clout. That being said, Nokia has been busy making improvements to the Z Launcher and in the latest update, it should bring about several changes and improvements that might be welcomed by its users.

StatCounter-Windows-8-market-shareIt seems like a coincidence but with every other version of Windows Microsoft has released, it has proven to be a bigger hit than its successor. For example Windows XP was a hit, but Windows Vista was not. Windows 7 was a hit and Windows 8 is still struggling to be adopted. In fact it seems that some OEMs claim that Windows 7 makes it easier to sell products compared to Windows 8.

That being said, adoption of Windows 8 is slowly on the rise. According to recent numbers released by StatCounter, they have revealed that Windows 8’s worldwide desktop market share has finally managed to surpass that of Windows XP. The combination of Windows 8 at 7.35% and Windows 8.1 at 8.2% have allowed the OS to surpass Windows XP which is sitting at 14.31%.

The PEN E-PL7 is a new $599-$699+ micro four third from Olympus which features a popular classic look while integrating the latest technological refinements at the same time. It is one of the fanciest selfie camera that you fill find, since Olympus has re-worked the user experience by flipping the screen towards the bottom so that users won’t have to move in front of the lens to use the touch screen to activate the delayed shutter, or even shots taken at regular intervals.

windows-8.1-updateMicrosoft has decided to introduce, or should we say, reintroduce a patch that was removed earlier this month after that installation of that patch resulted in boot failures. Needless to say, whatever bugs that were in there have been squashed as promised, so all should be smooth sailing from now on – fingers crossed, that is. In the kernel-mode security update KB2982791, there were a trio of known issues, where among them include the locking down of the fonts folder in Windows, the incorrect rendering of system fonts on Windows 8, 8.1, 8.1 RT and Server 2012 R2.

3dprinted-mac-piWhile I am quite sure that many of us have come up with our very own computer building projects in the past, how many of us have actually thought about printing a computer that we can call our own? Enter the 3D Printed Mac Pi, where this unique 3D printing project will actually be able to hold a Raspberry Pi as well as carry a 2.8” TFT display. Such a tiny display does not mean that it is a pushover – it is capable of emulating Mac OS 7 in order to run old school Mac Apps, where the open-source design happens to be free to download and modify. If you are interested in picking up the 3D Printed Mac Pi, it would be a decent DIY weekend project for those who are interested in electronics and 3D printing.
