    An inside source reported to BGR.com recently about the latest possible features to be available on the Iphone  5s or possibly Iphone 6. Some features may include a fingerprint scanner and a 12 megapixle camera. Who knows if this is true, none of these features have been confirmed and we are...

  • Proposed release date for iPhone 5s and 6

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted July 1, 2013 at 11:18AM
    As bits and pieces of the news of the forthcoming iPhone keep coming in we now have a proposed release date. The release date for 5s seems about right - perfect for a holiday sales push, the release of the new iOS 7, and coincides with all the hardware news we've been seeing. What doesn't seem...
  • Latest Firmware Update For PS3 Has Problems

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted June 19, 2013 at 10:48AM
    Sony has already pulled this firmware update from its site until they sort out the problem. This is why I usually wait a week or so before doing a firmware update. Read more about it here.
  • The Xbox One Might Let Sony's PS4 Win By Default

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted June 7, 2013 at 10:22AM
    Microsoft is either going to redefine what the gaming experience with a console or alienate its core crowd. Will gamers live with an always on internet connection and attached web camera? What about not being able to play used games without paying a new license fee? Seems like Sony may be the...
  • Conflicting news about Xbox 1 playing used games

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted May 22, 2013 at 11:43AM
    One of the most distressing news about the Xbox 1 before its release was that the system would not play used games. Some sites have said it will then I found this article, which if it is correct, means it will but at a cost for each user. If Microsoft wanted to give Sony a major selling point...
  • New Xbox to be unveiled tomorrow

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted May 20, 2013 at 10:15AM

We'll see the unveiling tomorrow but in the meantime here's a positive article on the state of gaming in general. Expect much more GPU and CPU power in the new machine as well as Blu-Ray  What may be...

    With the release of Samsung's S4 we get a chance to see one user's first impressions. Read the article and let us know what you think. Obviously without Apple's latest offering hitting the market at the same time it will be hard to take a stance which phone to go for but if you were due for an...
  • Netbooks doomed to oblivion by 2015, report says

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted April 12, 2013 at 10:30PM
    Interesting read here from the LA Times. One thing that the article doesn't point out is that smartphones have more power/usefulness for a similar price. 
  • Apple to debut a 60-inch, iRing controlled TV later this year

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted April 4, 2013 at 10:31AM
    Interesting idea - a ring as the remote. Can't wait to lose that remote though. Guessing that the opening price of $1500 makes this product have a great price point and the add on tablets (that may interact with the on screen content) could make viewing very different. Check it out here.
  • Apple running behind on iOS 7

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted April 3, 2013 at 10:16AM
    Some interesting stuff in this short article but the most significant is that iOS 7 is running behind schedule. Apple tends to release a new OS with new phones and then make it available as an upgrade a couple of weeks later for older hardware users. This all affects the next iPhone release...
  • Microsoft's IE 10 browser coming to Windows 7 PCs

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 27, 2013 at 10:32AM
    Currently Windows 8 isn't selling well for old hardware users who normally upgrade their OS after MS releases one. Add to that the fact that browser usage is way down for MS. Now comes this story which may bolster IE against its competitors. 
  • Sony's Playstation 4 Revealed. But how will it compete?

    By Quincy Oshiro | Posted February 21, 2013 at 10:26AM
    Yesterday evening Sony revealed the "Playstation4", the successor to the "Playstation3" at a conference last night in New York. It seems that many consumers feel this system wont do well, with specs revealed many like myself feel like Microsoft is well ahead of them. Promising specs include:...

  • The Apple iWatch Rumors Just Became Apple iWatch Reports

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 11, 2013 at 10:14AM
    The idea of trying to watch Facebook videos or read e-mail on a watch just doesn't appeal to me. I stopped wearing a watch a few years ago just because quite literally there's a clock around me at all times - my phone, computers at work, on the walls, etc. Now I'm supposed to be web connected...
  • This easy hack adds wireless charging to Samsung Galaxy S3

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 3, 2013 at 06:16PM
    Here's a neat short article for adding wireless charging. Take note that in one photo the copper tape on the battery connectors looks dangerously close to each other - if you can't separate them more then add an insulator in between them. Once you close the case the tape could touch and short...

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 22, 2013 at 10:18AM
    Atari has a pretty interesting catalog - perhaps this bankruptcy can produce some energy? No telling but at one time Atari was the 800 pound gorilla of the gaming world. Check out the article here.

  • 5 new Apple products for 2013

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 10, 2013 at 10:55AM
    Most of this isn't new information but seems like the release dates have firmed up for a lot of products. I think the June release for the iPhone 5s is more realistic as the phone releases are usually closely tied to OS updates for older phones. Check out the article here.
  • Valve makes the Steam Box official

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 9, 2013 at 10:05AM
    nVidia just announced the release of a gaming system yesterday and today Valve announces their intention to release a gaming system. Competition is good but profit margins in consoles are surprisingly low. Both Microsoft and Sony make their money on monthly subscriptions to their respective...
  • Lenovo's New Coffee Table Computer Is One Big Gigantic iPad

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 7, 2013 at 12:19PM
    The title of this article is a little deceiving as this unit runs Windows 8 and a new OS called Aura (anyone know if this is Android based?). We'll get more details as CES continues since Oleg is there this week. I have to go back to work so I won't get one of these in a swag bag - just kidding...
  • Happy New Year! No real surprises in this article but this is the first report I've seen with a tentative release date. Samsung hit a home run with the Galaxy phones so it stands to reason a larger screen is in the iPhone's future. What is odd is the idea that there may be different screen sizes...
