HTC One X+ Review

HTC One X+ Review

HTC’s One X, which launched earlier in the year, turned out to be quite a capable Android handset, and it was leaps and bounds above the company’s 2011 lineup. However, HTC decided to launch an updated version just a few months after the release of its predecessor. It’s available now exclusively on AT&T’s network, and it’s priced at $199 after a two-year contract. While the One X+ may not look any different than the One X, it does come with some decent and welcomed updates on the inside. It comes out of the box with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, 64GB of storage, and a slightly larger 2100mAh battery. These changes certainly are key updates that are crucial if HTC wants to keep up with other flagships going into the holiday season, but are the upgrades worth the higher price? And more importantly, can it compete with the other top-tier handsets on the market?

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple doesn't change things for the sake of change, and that's why we've had to wait a few years for a redesign of the iMac. When a fresh model does arrive, though, it arrives in style: for 2012, the iMac is slimmer than ever, with a crisp new casing that borrows aerospace construction methods and iPhone display technology to wrap together a beautiful, slim computer that's pleasing to the eye whether or not it's powered up. Still, as Apple's mainstream desktop, the new iMac has to perform, too, and with space at a premium there are some interesting choices to be made as to what goes inside. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

So who’ll buy OnLive now?

So who’ll buy OnLive now?

Sony's acquisition of Gaikai today closes off one long-standing rumor of a cloud gaming investment, but opens up another: which rival can't afford to leave OnLive on the shelf? Whispers that Sony was eyeing a cloud specialist culminated back in May with OnLive and Gaikai presumed the most likely candidates for powering the company's long-standing "Four Screen" strategy, something Sony described as its retort to Apple's iOS, iTunes and iCloud ecosystem. That leaves OnLive potentially up for grabs, and a number of potential suitors.

Analyzing E3 2012

Analyzing E3 2012

E3 is an interesting event – it’s a cross between CES and Comicon. Technically, it is an “industry” event not open to the public, but apparently if you work at a Gamestop you qualify as “industry.” Were people dressed up in costume? Yep. Were there scantily clad booth babes? Lots. One company just outside the convention center had women in bikinis posing for photos as a tie-in with their… no, it was entirely gratuitous. Did people stand in line for hours to get cheap SWAG? Absolutely. In fact, the lines were far longer to get free Oswald Rabbit ear hats in the Disney booth than to play games on the Wii U in Nintendo’s booth. That sort of blew my mind: you get the chance to go hands on with unreleased hardware and software and instead you wait for a silly hat? And yet E3 is not a gaming festival – there was plenty of actual news at the show.
