Let’s Stop Pretending the Kinect Is A Gaming Device

Let’s Stop Pretending the Kinect Is A Gaming Device

When I look around the technology space, I can’t think of any single product that is so poorly associated with another device than Microsoft’s Kinect. The sensor, which is supposedly designed with gamers in mind, actually delivers very little value to gamers nowadays. In fact, the Kinect is designed for computers and entertainment – gaming is an afterthought.

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and you're out? Read on for the SlashGear review.

HTC One Review [2013]

HTC One Review [2013]

It's been a tough few years for HTC, unsung victim of the Apple-Samsung smartphone war, and the new HTC One has a lot to do to fix that. The company has seen its place in Android dwindle from trailblazer to also-ran, as Samsung's cutting-edge hardware and vast marketing budget forced Galaxy to the fore. Solid phones like 2012's One X and One S failed to relight HTC's fire, and so it has done the only thing it can: raise its game much, much higher with the HTC One. We're back to the days of risk-taking hardware decisions and legitimately interesting software, but the big question is whether the One can pull it off. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Pebble Smartwatch Review

Pebble Smartwatch Review

Pebble stole Kickstarter's heart, eclipsed companies hundreds of times its size at CES, and got many people reconsidering the role of the wristwatch in today's smartphone-saturated world: not bad for a startup already burned once from a failed smartwatch project.

So, will Pebble's vocal supporters get some smart bang for their Kickstarter buck? Read on for our full review.

Google Glass “in flux”: Battery, cloud apps & controls still work-in-progress

Google Glass spotted in wild with prescription lenses

Google's Glass wearable computer has been spotted in the wild in New York City, complete with what appears to be integrated prescription lenses.
