Borderlands fans were excited when the latest game in the franchise, Borderlands 3, was announced just a few days ago. What some fans aren't so excited about is that the game is rumored to be an Epic Games Store exclusive. Several high profile game publishers are trying to escape the Steam tax that Valve imposes and Fortnite was the first major game to skip the Steam store in favor of the Epic Games Store. Yesterday the Borderlands official Twitter account reportedly posted that said "Mayhem is coming September 13" and later deleted the tweet. Considering yesterday was April Fool's we should all have the salt handy. Other reports claim that a 6-second Borderlands 3 Twiter video ad was floating... Read more...
The time is drawing near for the next generation of game consoles, as the PS4 and Xbox One are certainly getting long in the tooth. Sony has mostly dominated this generation of the console wars with its PlayStation 4 selling 94 million units, surprisingly distancing itself from Microsoft's offering. Microsoft is working on a lower price current generation Xbox One S that lacks an optical drive, tipped for launch May 7 and aiming at luring buyers from the PS4. However, a new leak is making the rounds that alleges to be an image of the net generation Sony PlayStation 5 devkit  console and controller. One glance at the image (seen initially on Reddit though it has since been removed... Read more...
Today is the day that all the details about Apple's long coming and much-rumored streaming video service will land. Previous rumors about the streaming service claimed that Apple device owners would get free access to some of the original programming that the company is working on and that the service will launch next month. Word is that Apple irritated some of the Hollywood types it is working with on the original programming by meddling too much with the creation process. A new report that originated with the Wall Street Journal directly refutes some of those old rumors. According to the report, Apple will offer no free content to device owners and will charge a fee to watch its new programming;... Read more...
The Nintendo Switch has been an incredibly popular game console that has sold very well for Nintendo. The Japanese gaming giant confirmed in January that it had sold over 32 million Switch consoles as of the end of 2018. Now, a new report claims that there are two new versions of the Switch in the works. The report claims that one of the new Switch models will have "enhanced features" and will aim directly at avid gamers. However, the Wall Street Journal report claims that the enhanced Switch won't be as powerful as the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X consoles. That would seem to indicate no support for 4K resolution gaming, but we don't know that for sure. Multiple sources from within the supply chain... Read more...
Thing's aren't all rosy in the iPhone realm today. Apple has been forced to go back to Qualcomm modems in the German market to get around a sales ban. In addition, consumers are upgrading their smartphones on a much longer upgrade cycle than in years past. However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a research note that predicts what we might see from Apple on the iPhone and iPad front for 2019 that could spark an upgrade craze from customers. Kuo says that the 2019 iPhone line will include a 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED model and a 6.1-inch LCD model -- the same as the current crop of devices. Kuo expects that the followup to the iPhone XR will get 4GB of RAM and that all models will use a frosted... Read more...
Many smartphone enthusiasts are waiting in anticipation for the launch of Samsung's new Galaxy S10 smartphone family. The S10 smartphones will launch at a Samsung Unpacked event on February 20. Now sources close to the company claim that mass production of the S10 started simultaneously around the globe on January 25. The source also claimed that the Galaxy S10 models currently in production would run on 4G networks, not 5G networks as some had hoped. The source claims that the S10 running on 5G networks is in the works and will be produced later in the first half of the year. The S10 will have multiple cameras and all will have in-display fingerprint reader technology. They won't all have... Read more...
Apple fans love rumors, and one of the best places to find hints of upcoming hardware is within new developer versions of iOS. The iOS 12.2 beta is currently available and one developer dug into the code looking for references to future products. Not surprisingly, iOS developer/guru Steven Troughton-Smith found references in the code to four new iPad models. The models referenced include "iPad11,1"; "iPad11,2"; "iPad11,3"; and "iPad11,4". The iPads with the 11,2 and 11,4 designations called out in the code are rumored to be cellular versions with the other two offering Wi-Fi only. All we have to go on right now is speculation, but the thought it that these iPad designations are for new iPad... Read more...
Of all the features that Apple's iPhone popularized, one of the most maligned was the notch. The notch came to be when the iPhone screen grew larger, and Apple needed somewhere to put the front camera and sensors for the smartphone. Several Android devices also use the notch, but some are already moving to using holes punched through the screen that the front camera shoots through. A new rumor has surfaced that claims Apple won't be following the punched hole screen trend with the next iteration of the iPhone. The rumor came from Chinese leaker Ice Universe who recently tweeted that the new iPhone models expected next Fall will still use a notch. The leaker goes on to claim that the 2020 iPhone...

Rumblings started back in June that Microsoft had some new hardware planned for 2019. Some were surprised when Microsoft sent out invites earlier this month to a hardware event that is suggested to be for the unveiling of new Surface hardware. One of the devices expected at that hardware event scheduled for October 2 is the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2. Ahead of that event, a slew of images has leaked that claim to be of the new laptop in its various colors.

As for hardware expected in the machine the same screen... Read more...
This week is a big one for fans of Apple smartphones, as the company will announce iPhones on Wednesday. Rumors have been plentiful about these new iPhones with the LCD base version being the device that has garnered much of the attention. This device has been tipped to have tiny bezels -- about half the size of the bezels on the costlier OLED packing iPhone models. Other rumors have claimed that the LCD 2018 iPhone would sell for about $699 making it much more affordable than the OLED models. Only days before the event to unveil the devices is set to happen new rumors have turned up with one suggesting that the LCD iPhone, previously called the iPhone 9, will launch as the iPhone Xc.

Talk of new NVIDIA Turing GPUs has left many gamers positively frothing over the last month with an alleged GeForce GTX 2060 5GB turning up on 3DMark giving us something to salivate over. A new rumor is now making the rounds that has to do with a forthcoming GeForce RTX 2070, and this card sounds like a beast with a launch date tipped for some time in September. The specs leak for the RTX 2070 will have some reaching for wallets in preparation; this card is tipped to have 2304 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 RAM. Those 2304 CUDA cores are packed into 18 SMs according to the leak. The tidbit in the leak about 8GB of GDDR6 is a nice surprise; previous leaks have tipped this card to come with... Read more...
Android fans who have been wondering when they can get hands on the next flavor of Android have a date to look forward to. According to leaker Evan Blass, Android P will be launching on August 20. Blass tweeted an image of a calendar noting that fans might want to save the date. He didn’t give an indication of where this rumor was sourced. Blass does have quite the track record of accurate rumor mongering. The one thing that we still don't know about Android P is what its official name will be. Some reports suggest that the "P" will stand for Pistachio Ice Cream, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. That could be an internal code name for this version of Android. Other... Read more...
Many smartphone fans out there have a favorite set of headphones that they use on-the-go for listening to music. For most people, that favored set of headphones has a 3.5mm plug and needs to be plugged in for use. Apple, on the other hand, has been trying to steer iPhone users away from wired headphones for several years. That fact was never more obvious than when it did away with the integrated 3.5mm headphone port. While the integrated port might have disappeared, Apple has been offering Lightning to 3.5mm adapters in the box with its iPhones. A new research note that originated with a Barclays analyst has said that the 2018 iPhone will no longer come with the Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter... Read more...
We know that Samsung is eying the end of the Galaxy Note line if the Note 9 doesn't do well. That device has been leaked multiple time so far including pricing rumors and benchmarks showing it's a fast device. Pricing will have as much to do with if the Note 9 is successful as performance. Early indications were that the smartphone could cost somewhere between $1,200 and $1,500 depending on the storage you choose. A new pricing rumor is making the rounds and alleging that the 128GB device will go for 13,500,000 IDR in Indonesia, which is around $940. The costlier 512GB version is said to sell for 17,500,000 IDR or about $1,200. Odds are the straight conversion price won’t be the same in... Read more...
