Facebook News Feed Update: it’s all changing – again

Facebook News Feed Update: it’s all changing – again

If you've heard about the Facebook event this week surrounding changes to the social network's main feed, you've likely felt a little tinge of annoyance. It's not as if we've not seen drastic changes to one of the most visited websites in the history of the world before, but as it's been made clear several times before: people don't like change in the tools they use every single day. So what can we expect over the next few months now that the Facebook crew is letting loose a brand new collection of features?

Samsung Galaxy S4 screenshots foretell beastly specifications

Samsung Galaxy S4 screenshots foretell beastly specifications

This week the Samsung Galaxy S4 (or Samsung Galaxy S IV, if you prefer) is getting its fair share of pre-release specification leaks, some of them fake, others exceedingly realistic. The one we're about to have a peek at seems to our haggard, weathered eyeballs to be almost surprisingly legitimate - pixel sizes of their screenshots included. With this leak comes a selection of screenshots that include specifications from the app Quick System Info PRO - a free app that'll tell you everything you need to know about your device in a jiffy.

The big Samsung "Be Ready 4 The Next Galaxy" invites have been dropped and note a March 14th, 2013 event to be held in Times Square, New York City - if that's not a massive venue, we don't know what is. We'll certainly be there with bells on, but before we get there, let's have a peek at what we might to see!

Technology conventions aren’t dying – they’re evolving

Technology conventions aren’t dying – they’re evolving

If this year's Mobile World Congress taught us one thing, it's that no matter how interesting and innovative the gadget makers and software developers of our global community are, it's the top brands that end up making or breaking the show. Make or break the show for the press, that is. Case in point: our several articles written from our chat with Google's Mathias Duarte - they ended up easily becoming some of the most popular posts we had this week, and Google didn't reveal any new products at the convention. In fact, they didn't have a stand - the chat we had wasn't even on the map. And yet, there it is - Google stole the show anyway.

Square Enix shows real-time rendering at PS4 event

Square Enix shows real-time rendering at PS4 event

This week the PlayStation 4 event, Square Enix' Chief Technology Officer Yoshihisha Hashimoto spoke up about the excellence of the system as it works with their own Luminous Studio. This next-generation technology has been presented as a game-changing push for graphics and real-live action that, like many of the presentations we've seen today, blurs the line between cinematics and gameplay. A demonstration was shown of this engine in action with a rather odd storyline of monks with lightning powers facing off against gun-toting violence-tossers - and so very many camera angles ensued.
