LG G4 Review – The hero Android needs

LG G4 Review – The hero Android needs

Life’s not so good when you’re stuck in the shadow of a big rival with deep pockets, but if anything can drag LG into the sunlight, it’s the new G4. LG’s flagship Android smartphone for 2015, the G4 takes what we loved about the G3 before it - and made it into the Android-to-have among those in the know - and hits the boost button. Screen, camera, performance, all have been in line for an upgrade. Nonetheless, the rest of the mobile world hasn’t stood still either, so does the G4 have what it takes to push back against Samsung’s excellent Galaxy S6?

Windows 8: what Microsoft did right and what went wrong

Windows 8: what Microsoft did right and what went wrong

Windows 10 is coming really soon. If AMD is to be believed, that is happening around July. Given this upcoming version of Windows is set to fix a number of complaints about Windows 8, it's release will surely call to mind some its predecessor's shortcomings. But for all the warts that Windows 8 had, it wasn't completely a failure in all aspects and even laid the foundations of many features and mindsets still present in Windows 10 and elsewhere. Here we take a look at 5 of the things Windows 8 could have gotten right and also how they failed to reach the mark.

Older folks react to Mortal Kombat X fatalities

Reaction videos are all the rage anymore: we've seen videos of kids reacting to old cameras and gaming systems, older folks reacting to Google Glass, and a bunch between. The newest reaction video again goes with the older folks among us, and eschews hardware for a dose of video game fun. Mortal Kombat X, that is.

Fetch Robotics’ Fetch and Freight solve your logistics problems

Fetch Robotics’ Fetch and Freight solve your logistics problems

Robots have started invading factories, automating tedious and sometimes dangerous workloads once assigned to humans. But there is one area of the industry business where robots have yet to become a more efficient and more viable option: warehouse logistics. The process of repeatedly picking up products from warehouse shelves, carrying them back and forth locations points to prepare for shipping sounds like a perfect job for robots, and yet very few are actually used here. Fetch Robotics believes it has the answer to that puzzle.

‘Wonder Woman’ movie nabs Patty Jenkins as new director

Earlier this week, news surfaced that the then-director of Warner Bro’s Wonder Woman Michelle MacLaren was stepping down from her role as director due to creative differences with the studio. It was disappointing news, but no time was wasted in finding a replacement. Word surfaced earlier today that Patty Jenkins would be replacing MacLaren, and it has since been confirmed that she will be directing the movie. By all accounts, it is still set to premiere in theaters in 2017.

PAMELA is a horror game without the cliches

PAMELA is a horror game without the cliches

Horror games are always fun, but too often they're like horror movies -- cliched and repetitive, repeating the same dry stories with vaguely similar characters. That's not always true, though, and sometimes a horror game surfaces that breaks the mold in some way. PAMELA looks to be one of those, presenting a horror game wrapped in a bright-neon and clean science fiction-like package. It's a survival horror game, and it'll be available for the PC when it launches. Trailer available after the jump!

MacBook Retina Review – The Portable Performer

MacBook Retina Review – The Portable Performer

Well it's about damn time the MacBook grew up. For years now, many of us OS X devotees have peered over the fence with envious eyes as Windows machines were given far more portable form-factors. Lenovo has been leading the pack in svelteness, and Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 has been appealing with its detachable keyboard, but at the end of the day Windows simply doesn't do it for me. The arrival of the new MacBook, however, meant those days of coveting notebooks could be long gone, with Apple taking the proven design of the MacBook Air and cutting out every last scrap of excess until - for the most part - only the features that matter remain. That's the theory, at least; I took the MacBook on the road to see if it was also the same in practice.

Verizon invests $100 million in struggling Detroit

Detroit is in bad shape. After the most recent economic issues our country experienced, the bottom fell out of the Motor City; businesses left, and citizens followed.

Today, Verizon is announcing they’re investing $100 million in Detroit, which will serve to enhance the city’s wireless experience throughout the Metro area. With the placement of 150 ‘small cells’ in Detroit, Verizon is future-proofing a potentially booming area.

Whistleblowers claim Russia has a propaganda “troll house”

What's more frightening and more destructive than an Internet troll? Why, a house full of them! That is exactly what Russia alleged has and it is a literal one. Two former employees of this "troll house" have come out to reveal some rather worrying details about this secret business that might actually be booming in the dark. Their testimonies add to the growing body of testimonies and speculation regarding Russia's more than active yet completely under the radar activities to spread its ideology and world views, especially against its enemies and the West.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung has a lackluster track record making flagship smartphones with serious lust-appeal. Its plastic-bodied Galaxy range was the Camry trying to play in Mercedes and Audi territory, earnestly ticking the boxes on the spec sheet, but failing to grasp that owners care about a sense of prestige as much they do a roster of the latest functionality. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and its flashy Galaxy S6 edge sibling are a lesson hard-learned, then, with both patchy sales and increasingly vocal criticism in 2014 demanding changes be made. 2015 might well be the fiercest year in phone tech yet; these two are evidence of Samsung's A-game.
