Mozilla reveals the Firefox OS for TV user interface

Mozilla reveals the Firefox OS for TV user interface

From web browser to phone and now to TVs, Mozilla Firefox has quickly outgrown its simple roots and is now aiming for the sky with the ultimate goal of a "Connected Home". But the size and location of a smart TV present a challenge when designing an interface that goes beyond a desktop window or a smartphone screen. For this purpose, Mozilla has stitched up an interface that is both new to Firefox users yet, at the same time, familiar to those who have already been using Smart TVs for some time.

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

There’s never been a tougher time to introduce a new smartphone, but LG thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new LG G4 for 2015. Building on last year’s G3 with a better camera, more high-quality materials, and a cleaner Android install, it may have a vaguely nonsensical tagline - “See the great. Feel the great” - but marketing hyperbole can usually be forgiven if the device lives up to expectations. I spent some time with the G4 to see why LG is talking Quantum Mechanics and movie theaters for its new flagship.

Netflix hit with industry backlash over new movie deals

Netflix hit with industry backlash over new movie deals

Netflix and Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions recently made a surprise announcement: that the video streaming service would partner in creating four new Sandler movies that will launch on Netflix exclusively. This immediately followed a similar announcement that Netflix will be making a second Crouching Tiger movie, launching it online at the same time as in IMAX theaters. Such moves were bound to happen and give consumers more control over their entertainment, but as expected, both have received substantial backlash from industry staples balking at the budding shift in how theatrical entertainment takes place.

EverQuest Next Landmark alpha lands today: Everything you need to know

EverQuest Next Landmark alpha lands today: Everything you need to know

Later today, Sony Online Entertainment does something the developer of titles like EverQuest, PlanetSide, and DC Universe Online has never done before: it invites gamers into alpha code that's far, far from being shipping-ready. EverQuest Next Landmark is the first step of a two-punch release that will launch SOE's next-gen MMO, fifteen years after EverQuest hit shelves, and a decade after EverQuest 2.

Unlike all previous versions, however, Landmark will be seen by public eyes well before its signed-off as market ready. "This is not a bug-hunt" Dave Georgeson, director of development laughs, "it's a 20,000 person dev team." We joined the developers to get some early hands-on time with the alpha and to find out exactly what players can expect from this new universe.

Buckle your boots. You're in for the rad-est, snowboarding-est, most gratuitously romantical tech gear commercial you've ever seen.

It's in fine keeping with the recent tech gear marketing trend of stopping just one nanometer short of directly shouting to the male segment, "This gadget will get you the girl!"

Nexus 5 Review

Nexus 5 Review

Let's cut to the chase: at $350 without the ties of a two-year contract, the Google Nexus 5 is an excellent smartphone and a bargain at that. Flushed with the positive response the sub-$300 Nexus 4 received last year, Google and manufacturer LG have again struck a balance between powerful portable computing, and cost. This time around, the LG Nexus 5 creeps up in cost a little, but at the same time buffs away most of the complaints we had about its predecessor, taking on rival flagships from other Android OEMs several hundred dollars more expensive in the process. Does that make it the best Android phone on the market? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
