Chromecast is a viable STB replacement, but not for everyone

Chromecast is a viable STB replacement, but not for everyone

The Chromecast was arguably one of the most talked-about new products that was revealed by Google earlier this week. The new Nexus 7 and Android 4.3 were cool and all, but the Chromecast definitely got most of the attention, and it’s easy to see why: it’s a media streaming device the size of a dongle, and it only costs $35 ($11 after the 3-month Netflix discount, which has since been discontinued). However, after playing around with it for a little while, I’ve noticed that it’s an awesome device for some people, and an awful device for others.

OS X Mavericks Preview

OS X Mavericks Preview

Apple promised us a software-rich WWDC this year, and the company delivered. While iOS 7 looks set to be the biggest change in the company's mobile offering since the original iPhone, OS X Mavericks teased the latest refinements to Apple's desktop platform. Not so flashy as iOS 7, perhaps, or as sweeping in its changes, but no less important as Apple continues to join together the dots between its platforms. Mavericks is still a work-in-progress, but Apple provided us with a recent build of the new OS X to get to grips with the highlights - and pick out the key changes - ahead of its full release this fall. Already, there are signs that Mavericks will be another must-have OS X upgrade; read on as we get to grips with the new heart of Mac.

Tesla’s Elon Musk says SuperCharging network will be tripled

Tesla’s Elon Musk says SuperCharging network will be tripled

With a gasoline-powered car, refueling is as simple as pulling into a gas station and waiting a few minutes for the gas take to be refilled. Things are a bit trickier with electric vehicles, however, which require charging stations rather than gas stations. Tesla has been rolling out it SuperCharger network over many months, having added six in California back in October, for example. At tonight's D11 conference, Musk made an announcement early: Tesla's SuperCharger network will be tripled.

Fitbit Flex Review

Fitbit Flex Review

If headsets like Glass are pushing the wearable computing boundaries, then fitness monitors like the new Fitbit Flex are entry-level cyborg tech for the mass market. Announced back at CES 2013, and taking on Nike's stylish Fuelband and Jawbone's twice-refined UP, the Flex promises to track your performance whether you're awake or asleep, along with real-time data transfer to your smartphone without a big hit on battery life. That's even though the Flex is cheaper than UP, falling just under that all-important $100 boundary. Is this the health tracker we've been waiting for? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 takes the mid-sized mobile market that Samsung's had covered for several years with successive Galaxy Note tablets and adds a pen. With Samsung's newest iteration of the S-Pen, a quad-core Exynos processor under the hood, and this rather thin form-factor, this is easily the best tablet effort in this category the manufacturer has ever offered. In this 8-inch size, Samsung has also created what many will find to be the ideal size for carry-along entertainment and notes.

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.
