NVIDIA Editor’s Day 2013 Wrap-up: G-Sync, 4K, and gaming’s blurred lines

Though the event continues to be called "Editor's Day", this week we had an extended stay with NVIDIA in Montreal, learning about the company's newest in gaming development and hardware innovation. The biggest news of the event was surely the unveiling of G-Sync, a hardware module made by NVIDIA to be planted in the backs of high-end gaming monitors, making their functions slave to GeForce GTX graphics cards, but that wasn't the only big push made by the company for industry. Also making appearances were NVIDIA SHIELD, development initiatives through GameWorks, and some of the biggest names in game development today.

Apple Oct 22 iPad event: what to expect

The next big Apple event will take place the 22nd of October and it'll be featuring several new pieces of hardware. Amongst these are a new iPad, a new iPad mini, and quite possibly a flow of new information on the 2013 edition of the Mac Pro and a set of new MacBook Pros as well - right in time for OS X Mavericks. This event was announced with an invitation with colorful leaves falling on an Apple logo that simply suggested that "we still have a lot to cover."

NYCC organizer ReedPop spams attendee Twitter accounts

The radio frequency identification (RFID) tags embedded in ID badges for this year's New York Comic Con were used to spam attendees' Twitter accounts the moment they walked into the Javits Center. The spam took the form of overly enthusiastic tweets like "#NYCC is the Best Four Days of my Year!" and "So much pop culture to digest! Can’t. handle. the. awesome.", followed by a link to the NYCC page on Facebook. Attendees were not warned ahead of time about this, and the spamming was intentional.

iPad 5 anticipation high ahead of October 22nd Apple event

iPad 5 anticipation high ahead of October 22nd Apple event

There's little doubt at this point whether or not there will be an October 22nd event held by Apple that will, in turn, be the first official home for the 5th generation iPad. Seeing an original leak from AllThingsD then a simple "Yep" from the likes of The Loop's Jim Dalrymple, this event will almost certainly center on not only the newest full-sized iPad, but the 2nd generation iPad mini as well. These devices will converge on aesthetic design this time around, both appearing much more like the original iPad mini industrially than the original iPad or iPad 2.

Apple A7 chip detailed: first 64-bit SoC to hit a smartphone

Along with the announcement of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, Apple also took some time to discuss the new processor. This latest will be the Apple A7 chip and perhaps key -- it will be the first 64-bit SoC to come available in a smartphone. This one will be found in the iPhone 5S and aside from the obvious jump to 64-bit, Apple is touting it as being "up to twice as fast" as its predecessor and in general, a "leap forward."

We have seen details in terms of the 64-bit processor and the camera and up now we have some discussion of security. Talk coming from the stage reflected on how we have lots of information we need to protect on our devices.
