LG Plasma HDTV CES 2010 range boast super-narrow bezels

In comparison to their huge 2010 LCD range, LG's new plasma HDTVs are conspicuous by their scarcity: the company have announced a mere eight new sets at CES 2010.  Among those six, however, are some impressive sounding beasts and some mighty fine design.  LG's TruSlim Frame models, for instance, the PK550 and PJ350, have bezels just 0.9-inches wide; all of the 2010 sets are around two-inches deep, too, and LG have shaved off considerable weight as well.

Olympus PEN E-P2 launched: new accessories & sky-high pricing

Thanks to previews on the company's own site, the launch of the new Olympus PEN E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera comes as little surprise.  Still, we've been waiting to see exactly what tweaks and changes - beyond an optional electronic viewfinder - the company has made, and while we'll save our final judgement until the reviews come in, right now it's looking like a reasonable upgrade.  The PEN E-P2 adds a continuous autofocus tracking system which can be used in both still and video modes, and adds that all-important accessory connector port for various add-ons to the hot-shoe.

Temper your Minecraft HoloLens enthusiasm

It was the mic-drop of Microsoft demos, Minecraft coming to life in augmented reality on the HoloLens headset, and it unsurprisingly stole the E3 keynote. Given Microsoft's previous hints about just what it had in mind for HoloLens, which overlays digital graphics on top of the real world, the idea of a special version of the brick-building game shouldn't have come as a surprise. Nonetheless, the sight of a table suddenly overcome with virtual blocks proved more than enough for us to temporarily forget HoloLens' big issues.

Google I/O 2015 Wrap-Up: Bangs and Whimpers

Google I/O 2015 Wrap-Up: Bangs and Whimpers

It's tough to stand out when you're still in the shadow of a skydiving co-founder, and Google I/O 2015 ended with many still holding their breath for the big bang. Even with Android M on the agenda, what we got instead was a more rounded view of how Google sees computing evolving, not only in near-saturated markets like the US and Europe, but for the "next billion" whose first taste of the internet will most likely come through an affordable smartphone. It was a lot to fit into even an extended keynote, at times feeling like Google was rushing to name-check projects without giving them the context they perhaps needed. In fact, most of the really cool stuff didn't even get a spot on the big stage.

Netflix’s library to get shakeup on May 1

Netflix regularly purges content from its library and replaces it with new content -- this is generally a bittersweet moment, in that there's a good chance something you enjoyed will disappear, but that something you'd like to watch will be incoming. It is that time again, with May 1 marking the start of more content being added, as well as the start of a bunch of content being removed. Amongst those that are outbound is Skyfall and RoboCop, and inbound are a load of new things including Zombeavers.
