The new shows will be available starting on June 17, and they’re mostly composed of kids shows, though there are a couple hour-long pilots for adults. Those latter two offerings will be made available in 4K UHD HDR, as well, assuming you have devices with applicable support.

Mass Effect Trilogy comes to EA Origin Access Vault

Mass Effect Trilogy comes to EA Origin Access Vault

When EA first launched Origin, there was a lot of backlash from PC gamers. With Steam dominating the PC platform, many people thought it was unnecessary for a publisher to open their own store, which only supported their titles. However, since then, EA has had a fair amount of success with the store. One of the big successes has been Origin Access, which just added a few great titles to its roster.

DARPA-backed electric military stealth bikes can also run on jet fuel

Back in early 2014, DARPA issued grants for the development of stealthy military motorcycles, with the idea being that silent motorcycles will be an efficient and fast way to get soldiers across difficult or long stretches of ground.

Nexus 9 not actually discontinued quite yet

HTC has confirmed that though their tablet has ceased being manufactured, they have not "discontinued" the tablet altogether. The word "discontinue" suggests that the device has stopped being made AND stopped being available for purchase. Only one of those necessities has been fulfilled. While the information appearing this week VIA a source speaking with CNET suggested the tablet wont be around for long, HTC Senior Global Online Communications Manager Jeff Gordon said the following this afternoon: "I can confirm Nexus 9 has not been discontinued. We still sell and support it at HTC dot com."

You will upgrade to Windows 10, whether you like it or not (if Microsoft has their way)

You will upgrade to Windows 10, whether you like it or not (if Microsoft has their way)

Did you know that Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to Windows 10? If you use Windows 7 or 8, you definitely know about this. I'm confident in saying that, because Microsoft has made it nearly impossible to not notice this, thanks to any number of different pop-ups asking you to upgrade. Their latest attempt to trick users into upgrading has received a lot of backlash, but the company is standing by it.

Forget room-scale VR, warehouse-scale is now possible

Forget room-scale VR, warehouse-scale is now possible

One of the reasons why I love my HTC Vive is because it allows me to move around the room. Otherwise, just standing around in the same spot tends to break my immersion. Of course, you're still limited to around 15 square feet of movement. But what if you want to roam around a much, much larger room? One company is working on just that.

AmpMe pairs iPhone with Android – and it’s amazing

The app AmpMe isn't strictly new - it's been around since last fall - but it's just gotten YouTube integration and therefore has become a monster. This app works on iPhone and Android - each platform just as well as the other - and it's basically magical. If you were looking for a reason not to toss your old smartphone from 6 years ago in the garbage (for whatever reason), here it is - every smartphone in the room can become one speaker system wirelessly, without hassle.

Photoshop gets Content-Aware Crop tool

Photoshop gets Content-Aware Crop tool

I use Photoshop nearly every single day. Most days, I'm just using it for basic tasks like cropping and resizing images to put in articles. Some days I'll use it for editing photos that I've taken for one reason or another. While all of the basic tools are nice, there's one tool that has become my absolute favorite since it was released, and it's about to get even better.

Reddit debuts native photo uploads hinting at split from Imgur

Philips 6000 Series 4K TVs adopting Google Cast

This week the folks at Philips have revealed that their next-generation 6000 Series 4K TVs will be adopting smartphone casting abilities via Google.

This content is then played independent of the original device or controlled by the original device, dependent on the application used to do the casting.

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine Plug-In Hybrid Review

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine Plug-In Hybrid Review

The 2016 Volvo XC90 turned more than a few heads when it hit the scene late last year, but while its opening act was a whirlwind of sleek Scandinavian styling and unexpectedly plush luxury, it's the encore that's really going to cement its run in the hearts and minds of SUV-seeking American buyers. The XC90 T8 is Volvo's moon-shot, the model with the power - and the price tag - required to cement its spot on the playbills of premium shoppers willing to entertain an alternative to the Teutonic trio of automakers that currently dominates high end sport-utility sales.

Minecraft gets Hunger Games-style Battle mode

Minecraft gets Hunger Games-style Battle mode

Minecraft started out as such a simple game. You'd spawn into a world, and you'd need to find resources to build a shelter to ride out the night in. Then you'd work on building bigger and better structures until you got tired of it. These days, there's more to do than any of us could have imagined back when the game was originally released in alpha, back in 2010.
