Plextor PlexEraser Eco-Friendly Disc Destroyer

Plextor PlexEraser Eco-Friendly Disc Destroyer

If you normally get rid of your discs via a shredder, then you may not be aware that the leftover plastic shards can give off a chemical from the disc coating that is harmful to the environment. Well, either you didn’t know, or you simply don’t care. I’m sure for those of us that shred discs once in a blue moon, the effect is not so critical. But for industries with lots of confidential information stored on discs that must be destroyed, the eco-friendly Plextor PlexEraser PX-OE100E standalone drive will do the job leaving them ready to be recycled without any data being recoverable. Works with eight types of disc formats in both 12cm and 8cm sizes. Priced at $249.

Plextor’s PX-B900A Blu-ray DVD Burner

Plextor’s PX-B900A Blu-ray DVD Burner

With all this noise about Sony getting their own Blu-ray DVD drives ready for the masses, it's easy to overlook the other Blu-ray options available. Plextor has announced their first Blu-ray burner, the PX-B900A, an internal ATAPI drive for normal PCs. While no price has been announced yet (though it should come in lower than the price for a comparable Sony drive), the unit will be able to write to BD-R and BD-RE discs at 2x while also supporting DVD-RAM, DVD±R/RW, and CD-R/RWs. And for all you computer lovers, the drive comes in both black and white to match whatever fits your style. Look for the new drive to hit shelves this fall.

DARPA “rethinking” how it develops new tech innovations

DARPA has released its "Breakthrough Technologies for National Security" report, and in it the agency discusses its plans for the upcoming years. This time around, DARPA has laid out its plans to boost tech innovation to help it keep pace with the innovations being seen in other nations around the globe. The report claims the US is a technological leader in many areas, but that the wars it has been involved in over the last decade have required a lot of focus and during that time other nations have been moving quickly to close the gap.

Slack: the hip and modern way to communicate at work

Slack: the hip and modern way to communicate at work

A lot of technologies have grown around the workplace, trying to ease the burden of collaboration, from cloud storage, to task management, to document management, and even video conferencing. Despite these advancements, however, a lot of the core communication that happens between members of a workplace still take place inside e-mails or instant messaging. That's not even considering yet the separate and disparate workflows that these tools impose. What if you could have just one virtual workplace to rule them all? That is partially the promise that Slack is trying to make as it undergoes yet another funding round.

2016 Jaguar XF pairs low-weight and high-tech

2016 Jaguar XF pairs low-weight and high-tech

Jaguar has taken the wraps off the new Jaguar XF, a new luxury sedan set to take on BMW's 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz's E-Class, and promising not only sports performance but economy too. Following in the tiremarks of the aluminum-centric architecture of the larger XJ, and borrowing the styling of the smaller Jaguar XE, the new XF has a near 50:50 weight distribution and uses the Configurable Dynamics system that debuted on the F-Type convertible and coupe. With that, Jaguar says, the rear-wheel drive XF should deliver the same stability as an AWD car. However, the company also claims, the XF will be capable of up to 70 mpg, though probably not in the US.

La Marzocco Linea Mini embraces coffee geek mainstream (sorta)

La Marzocco Linea Mini embraces coffee geek mainstream (sorta)

La Marzocco may be famous in coffee but the Italian espresso machine company has never been what you'd call affordable. That's not quite going to change with the arrival of the new La Marzocco Linea Mini, but it will bring the famous nameplate (and some of its most appealing qualities) within reach of a broader enthusiast audience. Distilling the style of the classic Linea - mainstay of many a coffee shop - not to mention its consistency and ease of use into a version scaled and suited to the domestic kitchen, the Linea Mini may still carry an eye-watering price tag but it's potentially a breakthrough in mainstream coffee geekery.

How Mercedes’ F 015 self-driving car is shaping smart cities

How Mercedes’ F 015 self-driving car is shaping smart cities

If there's one thing you won't mistake the F 015 Luxury in Motion for, it's any Mercedes-Benz currently on the road. Previous autonomous development had started with a production car and then added self-driving abilities, Mercedes designer Till Varailhon explained to me; this time around, the team started from scratch: not only in how the car looks and drives, but how it shares space responsibly in the cities of 2030. After the cut, no-go zones, flocks of scurrying research robots, and why Tesla only proves the smart city is inevitable.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

To suggest that Final Fantasy Type-0's international release was "long awaited" would be a gross understatement. The original game (pre-HD)'s demo was first released in August of 2011, back before the first whispers of an 8th-generation console release. Originally titled Final Fantasy Agito XIII for its non-HD PSP release, this game was eventually re-named Final Fantasy Type-0, so named for its original approach in battle in the Final Fantasy universe. Here we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a game that's been in development since mid-2012 for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
