According to the numbers released by LG, they […]


OnePlus Teaser Hints At New Backplate Option For The OnePlus One

Last year when the OnePlus One was launched, right off the bat it seemed that the company took some marketing cues from Motorola as they announced that the handset would come with swappable backs made from different materials.

Qantas To Provide First-Class Passengers With Samsung Gear VR Headsets

Inflight entertainment is hit or miss depending on what kind of flight you take and what kind of planes you get. For example flying on a newer plane would probably nab you slightly newer hardware, while taking an older plane might see you relying on entertainment units a decade old, but it looks like Samsung and Qantas wants to change that. Both companies have recently announced a new partnership in […]

Bing Venue Maps Lets You Navigate Through Stadiums

Getting around these days are a whole lot easier than ever before, especially when there is this thing known as GPS. Dedicated GPS navigation devices are just about extinct, as we rely on other apps like Google Maps to get around.

Chess Computer Program Weighs In At Just 487 Bytes

Certainly this French coder would most probably still think that 640k is enough for everyone – especially when you see that his chess computer program is stored on jst 487 bytes of code.

Is It Possible To Beat Tetris? Apparently So!

When it comes to a game like Tetris, there does not seem to be any way to beat it – regardless of how fast your reflexes are coupled with impeccable hand-eye co-ordination for human standards, or so we think. Master Tetris player Kevin Birrell was the one who managed to achieve the seemingly impossible “MasterM” ranking in Tetris the Grand Master 3: Terror Instinct, where he even had to contend […]


WesterosCraft Is A Place Of Beauty

Crossovers are more often than not a double edged sword – it can cut both ways, for good and for bad, depending on how it is executed. We have seen crossovers in the comics world for many decades now, and sometimes, the entire shebang just works, while in others, it turned out to be a terrible decision where not even the best storyteller is able to salvage the situation. Having […]


Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer In Neon

I am quite sure that a fair number of us have already watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer for more than a few times, making it one of the most highly anticipated films in due time.

Facebook Sees Surge In Quarterly Profit

Social network giant Facebook has seen a surge in their quarterly profit – we are looking at a figure of 34% alongside a revenue increase of up to 48%, now how about that? Still, the executives over at Facebook have remained rather modest about their achievements, citing Wednesday’s earnings announcement that they are but getting warmed up – just. In three months that ended on December 31, 2014, Facebook recorded […]

Are you looking forward to the release of Mortal Kombat X? I am quite sure that with the numerous trailers which we have seen in the past, there has been a fair number of discussions as to which is the cooler character to pick from.

Facebook Still Trying To Balance Out The Number Of Video Ads Displayed

While browsing Facebook, users get to see a mixture of links, photos, and videos. These videos can come from a variety of sources such as YouTube, Vimeo, or maybe even videos uploaded onto Facebook directly, and it seems that Facebook’s video feature is starting to bloom. In fact back in September last year, Facebook managed to achieve 1 billion video views in a day which has since grown to 3 […]
