Google Glass speeding ticket strikes: changing the law

Google Glass speeding ticket strikes: changing the law

Today there's a buzz about a speeding ticket issued in California with an additional note about wearing Google Glass. The original post appears courtesy of Cecilia Abadie who provided a rather clear scan of the ticket she recieved. This ticket suggests that while Abadie was pulled over for speeding - 80 miles per hour in a 65 MPH zone - then was cited for Driving with a Monitor Visible (that's Google Glass). Now comes the time when we see how the law changes for devices that aren't covered in the original writing for this particular "Television" code in California law - then in laws across the USA and the world, soon after.

iPad Air Review

iPad Air Review

Had the iPad lost its way? Not as a range, certainly; over the last twelve months, the iPad mini has been the darling of the tablet scene, coupling affordability with convenience and build quality. The full-sized, 9.7-inch iPad has arguably been sidelined since its smaller sibling's arrival, but no more as of the iPad Air. Now with a design that echoes the wow-factor of the original iPad, and the performance to match, the iPad Air narrows the gap between it and the iPad mini, paring away the compromises as it goes. The best tablet Apple has made? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

micro-DisplayPort for 4K+ thinner phones and laptops in works for 2014

Laptops could be getting smaller and smartphones gaining easier external display connectivity with the news of a new, more compact micro-DisplayPort connection in the works. Expected by VESA to be finalized as a standard by Q2 2014, the smaller port will be backward-compatible with existing DisplayPort and mini-DisplayPort devices, but still offer beyond-4K Ultra HD connectivity for phones, tablets, and ultraportables.

GTA V PC Torrent strikes unlucky thieves in the wild

GTA V PC Torrent strikes unlucky thieves in the wild

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently in production. There is no final version out in the wild, nor is there a way for you to download this game for the PC in any way at all - it simply does not exist. That fact hasn't stopped a seemingly large amount of unknowledgeable thieves in the wild, though, as several GTA:V torrents have appeared with big downloads: one in particular bringing on some real dangerous heat.

Nokia Lumia 2520 hands-on

Nokia Lumia 2520 hands-on

Nokia's Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet has been some time coming. The company's last attempt at full Windows, the Nokia Booklet, proved too expensive and too slow, and Nokia's enthusiasm for big-screen devices has waned ever since. The Lumia 2520 changes all that, however, a 10.1-inch alternative to the full-sized iPad and numerous Android tablets, cladding Windows RT in the distinctive and colorful polycarbonate Nokia's Windows Phone range has become known for. Read on for our first-impressions.

BBM Android and iOS apps hands-on

BBM Android and iOS apps hands-on

Today it would appear that BlackBerry is actually aiming to release their BBM chat apps for both the iOS and Android ecosystems, and we've got our hands on the both of them to show you what they're all about. At its simplest, it would appear that BBM is coming to the public outside of the BlackBerry smartphone in a form that's extremely similar to the original. At its most complex, it seems that the software team behind the apps for each new platform have done their homework as far as how the design language should translate.

Bunn Trifecta MB Coffee Machine Review

Bunn Trifecta MB Coffee Machine Review

Coffee. Delicious, wonderful coffee. Some of us are fueled by it throughout the day; to others it's an occasional treat first thing in the morning or straight after dinner. There's no one "right" way to brew it, and traditional methods like espresso, drip, and French press sit alongside newer upstarts like Clover. Wading into the home market is Bunn's Trifecta MB, the domestic version of its $5k Trifecta for cafes. Designed for a kitchen counter, the Trifecta MB combines elements of drip, Clover, French press, and other approaches, with convenience nearing that of a single-cup pod brewer but the flexibility to bring the very best out of your beans. Still, can it be worth all of $549? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Technical Details

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Technical Details

"The Z/28 is really going to be the icing on the cake for the Camaro." So says Al Oppenheimer, chief engineer on Chevrolet's Camaro team, and while he's unsurprisingly a little biased about GM's street-legal race car, having been out on the track in the 2014 Camaro Z/28 it's hard not to catch some of that enthusiasm. Chevrolet's cars aren't production ready yet - though even when they are, GM will only be making 3,000-4,000 over the course of two years - and the test cars are hand-built, down to the special 505 HP engines, but already the potential is clear. Read on for our first impressions.
