Elgato Issues Recall For Smart Power 6,000mAh Battery Packs

We’ve all heard the stories of batteries exploding and setting fire to things around them, so it is safe to say that the companies who manufacture battery packs are pretty wary and are usually on the lookout for incidents that could put them in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Now if you have purchased Elgato’s Smart Power battery pack, it seems that the company is looking to recall them. […]


DigiTech’s TRIO Is Like A Band In A Pedal

Say you’re at home alone and you’re trying to write a song, so maybe you write the guitar part first, but you’re curious as to how it might sound like with a full band with the drums and bass accompanying it. There are a couple of ways around it, one of which is to create your own backing drums and bass tracks which can be time consuming, or you could […]


Saygus V2 Pre-Orders Delayed To 2nd February

A couple of days ago, we reported that the Saygus V2 would be available for pre-order today. Unfortunately it seems that for some reason, the company has decided to delay those pre-orders and has since pushed the pre-orders to begin on the 2nd of February, which is next Monday. However this means that customers will still have some time to pre-register their interest in the handset, but why pre-register when […]


Google Admits They Faced Challenges With The Nexus 6’s Inventory

When the Nexus 6 was released, given its impressive hardware specs, it was sold out pretty quickly. Back then Google promised that they would try and get it restocked every Wednesday via the Google Play Store, but like we said with its popularity, inventory of the handset depleted pretty quickly. However it seems that it wasn’t just the popularity of the handset that was to blame, but Google’s management of […]

OUYA Gets New Lease On Life With $10 Million Investment From Alibaba [Rumor]

The OUYA Android gaming console was launched back in 2012 on Kickstarter where it has since managed to become the 3rd most funded project on the website of all time.

Google Chromecast A Hit In The US, Cast Button Pressed 1 Billion Times

Back in the middle of 2013, Google announced the Chromecast. The HDMI dongle back then was an interesting device which allowed users to attach it to their TVs via the HDMI port and mirror the content on their phones or tablets while allowing remote control via their mobile devices. It was also priced at a very affordable $35. Like we said it was an interesting device, but as it turns […]


Tesla Model S P85D To Get Software Update That Makes It Even Faster

When we think of electric cars, we don’t really think of them as speedsters. Such cars are best left to manufacturers who still focus on gas-powered vehicles, but yet Tesla has proved us all wrong with the Tesla Model S P85D which managed to clock an insane time of 0-60mph in a very impressive 3.2 seconds. If the reaction of its passengers are anything to go by, this is a […]

Microsoft To Invest In Cyanogen Inc. [Rumor]

Remember earlier this week when the folks at Cyanogen said that they wanted to take Android away from Google? It is an ambitious plan and it isn’t so much Cyanogen buying Android, but more like creating a version based on Android that’s so different that users would much rather use that version than Google’s. The question is, how are they going to do that? Perhaps with a little help from […]

Comcast Renames Man To An Expletive For Trying To Cancel Subscription

Comcast’s customer service record isn’t stellar and while you might wonder why the company doesn’t do more to improve its reputation it certainly pulls out all the stops to get some bad press. Ricardo Brown has a Comcast cable subscription and when his wife had a disagreement when trying to cancel the subscription the family started receiving monthly statements in which Ricardo’s full name had been changed to an expletive, […]


Google Inbox Invites Available All Day Today

The Gmail app has a pretty decent design and its more than capable of handling email.

The app still requires invites before it can be used and today is the first full day of Google providing invites for Inbox. Anyone can get an invite today if they send in their […]

Well, it seems that is the price to pay for “progress”. Here is a rather strange device that looks as though it would be […]


Beware, The Lego SHIELD Helicarrier Is Coming

I am quite sure that many of us who have watched the Avengers, as well as other Marvel films that have the Helicarrier in there, would have been more than impressed with the architectural design and grandeur of it all. Having said that, since Lego has always been the plaything that allows the imagination of a child (and adult, of course) to go wild, here is one more to add […]


Nokia N1 Doing Extremely Well In China

A few months back Nokia announced a new tablet called N1. It said that this tablet would only be sold in China. When the first batch was released it sold out within minutes.
