Project Tango tablet finally goes international

For the first time since it debut as a skunkworks project last year, Google is officially bringing the Project Tango tablet to more countries worldwide. That, however, doesn't mean that it's exactly going to be for sale for consumers, only that researchers and tinkerers in other countries won't have to bend over backwards just to get their hands on one. This opens up what is practically a very polished development device to more hands and minds, which will hopefully push Google's "crowdsourced" computer vision research even further.

Expand your Xbox gaming with new Chatpad, Seagate Game Drive

Gamescom this week has seen Microsoft make its biggest pitch to try and wrest the laurel away from Sony's PlayStation 4.

While it's still busy actually preparing the system for merchants and smartphones, it is announcing that the payment service will also come to your living room. Samsung Pay on Samsung Smart TVs. No, it's not going to make it easier to buy that doohickey you saw on the home shopping channel. It will, instead, let you easily pay for digital content that is coming to the Smart TVs.

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

Last week we saw not one but two mid-year racehorses make their way into the smartphone tracks. One an established veteran in the industry, the other almost a David in comparison, both putting out mouthwatering offers. But at the end of the day, unless you have the money to spare, you will choose only one. Is the OnePlus 2 really worthy of all the hype the startup generated? Or was the Moto X Style able to repeat the magic of the original Moto X in 2014? Pending a full blown review, we do a spec and feature side-by-side to get a preliminary appraisal.

Epson EcoTank printer changes everything, ditches ink cartridges

Epson EcoTank printer changes everything, ditches ink cartridges

Whether you buy an expensive printer or a cheap printer, those ink cartridges are going to run out sooner than you'd like and replacing them will -- in some cases -- cost as much as the printer itself. Though we haven't be able to completely do away with printers yet, the need for them has decreased greatly enough that many people, faced with the high cost of ink, elect to run to the nearest library when they do need to print something. Only a shift in how printers work could potentially change this, and it looks like Epson is the one to bring about that change.

AQUA lightweight headphone amp ditches the battery
