Well, who didn’t see this one coming? Delays for highly anticipated video games are nothing new, so you shouldn’t be too surprised to hear that Rockstar Games has delayed the release of Grand Theft Auto V for the PC. The game was originally set to debut on January 27, but that date has now been pushed back until March 24. “Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be,” said Rockstar in a posting on its website earlier this morning. “Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice...

Looks like the Ivy Bridge won't be completed as early as construction workers thought. DOT jokes aside, Intel's next-gen microprocessor range will reportedly be pushed back "eight to ten weeks later than planned," according to Sean Maloney, executive vice-president of Intel and chairman of Intel China. The news comes courtesy of the Financial Times. Mr. Maloney stated that the 22nm CPU (which is set to take the place of Sandy Bridge) had seen its start date pushed back until June. The exact quote? "I think maybe it's June now," not April. Not a huge difference, but one that will certainly hit investors... Read more...
There's a rumor going around that Intel's initial Ivy Bridge launch will end up stunted by small volume shipments in early April, with mass shipments being delayed until sometime after June. News of the delay was reported by DigiTimes last week after it claimed to have heard from sources in the notebook industry that Intel made the decision to slow things down due to a high number of Sandy Bridge processors still in need of a good home. In order to minimize the impact on first-tier notebook vendors stuck with a large volume of Sandy Bridge chips, as well as Intel's own stockpile, the Santa Clara... Read more...
What a difference a couple of weeks make. About this time two weeks ago, U.K. games retailer GamePlay was listing Diablo III's release date as February 3, 2012, and there was at least one Best Buy brick and mortar location with a Diablo III advert announcing availability on February 1, 2012, plenty of time to get your hack and slash on before switching gears into Mr. (or Ms.) romantic for Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like either of those release dates will pan out. "While working on Diablo III we've been called out for messing around with systems too much, that the game is good...

We've been chomping at the bit to play with Razer's upcoming Razer Blade gaming notebook ever since it was revealed in August, and like everyone else, it looks like we'll have to wait just a little bit longer to find out if it lives up to the hype. A last minute storage upgrade prompted Razer to delay the release until Janaury 2012. Razer made the announcement on its Facebook page and split it into good and bad news portions. The good news? Razer decided to yank the 320GB mechanical hard drive and plop a 256GB solid state drive in its place, and do so without raising the price. We already knew... Read more...
We had no illusions that the earthquake in Japan earlier this year was truly tragic, and aside from disrupting and ruining the lives of thousands of individuals, it has also caused tons of problems for companies operating out of the island nation. To our surprise, it seems that most companies have managed to pick up the pieces and forge ahead without too many notable disruptions; there have been a few supply problems here and there, but largely things have been cruising along just fine so far as the outside world can tell. Nikon, which obviously has a huge amount of operations within Japan, is... Read more...
If you would have told us yesterday that Apple's iPad 2 tablet was being delayed, possibly by up to 2 months, we'd conclude you're a tech savvy individual who follows the news. But if you tell people that today, well, you could be accused of being bat crap crazy. Short and to the point, Reuters says yesterday's rumor simply is a bunch of hogwash. "A report that the next version of Apple Inc's iPad tablet computer will be delayed is not true, according to a source familiar with the matter," Reuters said. And that's it. Reuters didn't disclose its source or provide any other details, other than to... Read more...
Well, isn't this a shame? Lenovo has been one of the few companies to show genuine interest in shipping a high-class product in the "smartbook" sector, but now the IdeaPad U1 is seeming to fade from view. Hardly anything has been mentioned about the device since its original introduction, and all the while smartbooks have proven to be less popular than originally expected. Some may say that the tablet killed the smartbook before it ever had a real chance at success, but the U1 looks like it could be a hit regardless. It's a hybrid PC that can operate as both a tablet and a laptop, and rather than... Read more...
Good luck trying to get your hands on a white iPhone 4 this summer, because there just aren't any to be found. And according to Apple, you're going to have to hang tight for awhile, because daggone it, getting the color right is proving to be more difficult than the company could have ever anticipated. Seriously. Either that, or maybe Apple was afraid you'd hold it wrong and cast a shadow on the device, thereby changing its appearance. "White models of Apple's new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available... Read more...
What a wild week in technology it has been. Sony has been sued, HTC now has to pay Microsoft each time they sell an Android phone, Adobe and Apple are publicly humiliating one another, Palm was purchased by HP, and now Microsoft has decided against following the herd and producing a tablet of their own. Wait, what? For those who don't closely follow Microsoft's every move, the death of a product you've never heard of probably comes as somewhat of a shock. You weren't hidden under a rock or anything, it's just that Microsoft never actually came forward and confirmed that a so-called "Courier" was... Read more...
It's a tough world out there for anyone attempting to compete with HTC, Apple, Samsung and LG in the smartphone sector. Even for Nokia, who has held the overall market share lead from a worldwide perspective for years now. Overseas, Nokia phones are everywhere, but they're becoming less and less common to see in America with other smartphones grabbing the bulk of the mind and market share. Recently, Nokia released the company's latest quarterly results, and most of the news wasn't exactly rosy. The outfit cut their profit outlet for the key phone unit, and it also lowered some phone prices in a... Read more...
Oh, brother -- again already? Just days after we heard that Intel was delayed its long awaiting Itanium chip to better its performance before shipping, in flies word that the chip maker is delaying yet another processor, and this one's arguably even more significant. Needless to say, Intel's Core i7 has been a huge hit with gamers and multimedia lovers alike, and it has no doubt generated millions for the company.Now, the processor's lower-end brother, which was on track to debut this July, will reportedly slip to early September. Indeed, we were even hearing about the Core i5 (codenamed Lynnfield)... Read more...
It's hard to say if there is anything to this, but it's certainly interesting at the very least. For years now, Intel has been notoriously good at shipping its products on time. If Intel says a chip is coming in a certain quarter in a certain year, it'll be there. On the other hand, AMD has been the polar opposite; year after year, the chip maker has announced delay after delay, spoiling even the hopes of diehard fanatics.Now, however, the tables seem to be turning, albeit slightly. While Intel's dealing with a $1.45 billion fine, Advanced Micro Devices is enjoying the success of its Neo platform... Read more...
Intel's Itanium processor has been around for what feels like ages, but clearly the chip maker isn't ready to retire the name and move on to something different just yet. We've just learned that the latest iteration of the Itanium, which has been codenamed Tukwila, won't begin shipping as soon as previously expected. According to a company spokesman: The "RISC-based server processor was scheduled to ship early this year. However, Intel decided to push back the release by several months in order to add capabilities. The processor itself is fine, but Intel has made the decision to add some engineering... Read more...
