Some of us require a bit more oomph from our machine's hardware, however, and that is where workstations like the HP ZBook 15 come in. This laptop is on the hefty side, and with it comes a full keyboard with numpad, a 15.6-inch Full HD display, and surprisingly high battery life. Check out our full SlashGear review to find out what else this beast offers.

Death Star tiles make any room daunting

Death Star tiles make any room daunting

There's a company out there called Tom Spina Designs that wants to make your house into the most daunting of Star Wars-themed environments. They've created a total of 14 "master tiles" which replicate the surface of the original Death Star from Star Wars: A New Hope, allowing you to flip and trade out any number of combinations (well, not ANY number, but a whole lot), for a fully desolate looking construction. These tiles are made with linoleum for optimum home-matching abilities.

Qualcomm, Cisco execs cite spy suspicion for shaken China tech trade

Qualcomm, Cisco execs cite spy suspicion for shaken China tech trade

We've been covering the NSA and other spy agencies pretty faithfully here at SlashGear, and while all that cloak-and-dagger, hack-and-spy, Big-Brother-Is-Watching-You drama can be provocative, that's not why we cover it. We cover it because it affects the tech industry and, by extension, the gadgets we obsess over. The reverberations of mass data surveillance by governments do eventually make their way down to consumer tech. Today we're seeing one way spying has chilled the industry that underpins our toys. Take the recent decline in US tech sales in China and yesterday's statements by executives from Qualcomm and Cisco, for example.

Enevo One Collect smart sensor aims to make trash collection green

Enevo One Collect smart sensor aims to make trash collection green

Every week, the garbage truck will show up at your home or apartment complex and empty the cans or dumpsters, repeating its process on the same schedule week after week. This is an efficient process in terms of collection, since it allows entire blocks to be emptied of their trash in one swoop, but it is decidedly unscientific and isn't necessarily the best collection method for the environment. This is what the Enevo One Collect smart sensor aims to change.

Simpsons headed to Cable in TV’s biggest off-network deal ever

Simpsons headed to Cable in TV’s biggest off-network deal ever

Up until now, The Simpsons had been running on broadcast syndication - Fox, fo be exact - the same place it started (as its own show) back in 1993. Because a cartoon comedy show such as the Simpsons was relatively unheard of at the time, Fox was able to secure a contract that meant they were able to hold complete exclusivity with the show just so long as they were still airing it on their station. Fast forward 26 years and you've got a show that continues to push new episodes.

KitKat Google Now opt-out not permanent: here’s where to find it

With the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat, Google begins an age in which their Google Now service is right up front and center - and you can opt-out from the outset. What you'll find when you first start up the Nexus 5 is a series of option pages, much like versions of Android before 4.4 KitKat, including a new one that asks if you'd like to opt-in to Google Now. If you decide to opt-out, Google Now all but disappears from your Android experience.
