This has been my busiest travel year and damn, I could have used this bag.

The leaks of images and info about Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 have been practically non-stop over the last few weeks, and with the official launch taking place later this week, there's no sign of them slowing down.

BatteryBox Review – MacBook power with MagSafe workaround

If obsessively glancing at the power meter in your MacBook's status bar is giving you eye-strain while you're away from an outlet, it might be time for an external battery. Not every power pack is created equal, however, and BatteryBox claims not only to have made a smarter and much longer-lasting battery, but one which neatly works with Apple's proprietary MagSafe connector, too.

How Double Fine changed game development and Kickstarter forever

How Double Fine changed game development and Kickstarter forever

Today, Double Fine released to the public the last episode of its aptly named Double Fine Adventure documentary series. This ends a run that was something akin to a TV soap that spanned 20 episodes and three years (Episode went up August 2012). It also closes a chapter of the game studio's history, a single chapter but one whose effects have rippled throughout the gaming industry and the crowdfunding scene. And whether or not you actually liked their Broken Age game, there is no denying it: Double Fine made, and changed, history. For better or for worse.

Galaxy S6 gains microSD, battery thanks to Incipio

Will the addition of a microSD card slot and a removable battery change your mind about the Galaxy S6? Incipio hopes so. They've created an Offgrid battery case that works for both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that clamps either phone to a battery pack that adds a cool 3,700mAh of battery power while providing the option of expandable storage. The battery pack itself has a microSD card slot, as odd as that may seem, which uses the same micro-USB port as the battery normally would.
