Just when we thought that Microsoft’s smokin’ Xbox One deals couldn’t get any better, the company outdoes itself.

Foxconn CEO Terry Gou spoke out at a shareholder’s meeting to set the record straight on comments made at the beginning of the year about robots. It turns out that the era of robot-powered factories isn’t quite as near as the head of Foxconn seemed to imply in February and he’s holding the media responsible for... Read more...
LG Chem has developed a new battery that could be a boon for certain smartwatch manufacturers. The company this week introduced a new hexagon-shaped battery that can be used in smartwatches that feature circular case designs. Today’s wearables typically feature a square-shaped battery, which is not very space... Read more...
Back in April, the EU hit Google with antitrust charges for alleged favoritism it gives its own services in search results. Being that Google is so dominant in the search game, this is a big deal to companies that feel that it's placing its inferior services above their own. Yelp is one of those companies, and one...

“I feel the need, the need for speed!” As an 80s child, I have seen Top Gun at least a few dozen times, possibly more. It was my first introduction to Tom Cruise and sparked my fasciation with military aircraft (I must also give partial credit to the lesser known film Iron Eagle for also feeding my... Read more...

Rumors have been swirling about the Microsoft's still unannounced Lumia 940 XL, though thanks to multiple leaks, we have at least a rough idea of what to expect. The latest leak comes from data plucked out of AdDuplex, a cross platform promotion network for Windows Phone and Windows Store apps that lets developers... Read more...
Given how much Apple Music has been in the news this month, it's almost hard to believe that the service has yet to launch. Tomorrow, that will change, as Apple will be rolling the service out for iOS, OS X, and Windows (Android support is coming this fall). In order to make sure you're ready for the service, you'll...

Most so-called breakthrough battery technologies we hear about come with tremendous claims, like quadrupling the amount of energy stored or being able to recharge 1,000 times faster. Heck, one day we might even run laptops on Mountain Dew (slight exaggeration). Samsung, on the other hand, makes a more modest claim... Read more...
Batman Arkham Knight is here and as we're sure most of you have heard, the game is currently no-longer for sale for the PC platform due to a flood of performance issues. WB Games has pulled the title from store shelves, both physical and digital copies. Can you say “Holy botched game launch, Batman?” We usually don’t start a piece with such... Read more...
You no longer have to wonder what Super Mario would look like if he was rendered in 3D using the Unreal Engine 4. What, the thought never crossed your mind?

It then sends the images back to police, where they are rapidly stitched into a panoramic image for tactical assessment. The... Read more...
It seems odd for Microsoft to add a new SKU for its Surface Pro 3 so late after its initial release (the Surface Pro 3 was originally announced on May 20, 2014 and went on sale one month later). Yet here we are, one year later, and we’re seeing the introduction of a new $1299 SKU that bring the price of entry for... Read more...
