Samsung Chromebook 2 13.3 hands-on and first-impressions

With the newest generation of Chromebooks they’ve got prepped for the public, Samsung brings on their Galaxy styling to the web-based OS’s hardware.

This machine will be offered in gray and will be appearing in the public in April of 2014.

Five key takeaways from our Titanfall Review

Five key takeaways from our Titanfall Review

Our Titanfall Review is nearly 5000 words long. It’s not your everyday average game review, and not something you’re likely to read the entirety of unless you’re either seriously torn about the game or you’re overly-obsessed. What we’re doing here in the aftermath of that article’s release is taking you down a slightly easier-to-digest path, a sort of "Titanfall for the Gamer on the Go", if you will.

Nosgoth gameplay in Beta mode: Vampire PvP on the loose

Nosgoth gameplay in Beta mode: Vampire PvP on the loose

If there was one game I did not expect to be playing this week, it was a person vs person vampire-themed free-for-all online title from Square Enix called Nosgoth. This game isn't your traditional shoot-em-up game, nor is it a horror flick. It's somewhere in-between, and it's going to be completely free to play once it's released outside of Beta mode later this year.

Blackphone hands-on: high-end cost for NSA-era privacy

Blackphone hands-on: high-end cost for NSA-era privacy

If you’re looking for mid-tier scrimping while you’re also in the market for total and complete privacy in all things you do online, you might want to look somewhere else. Blackphone does the latter - or suggests that it’s entirely private and secure, but it’ll cost you. Right out of the box, software aside, this device works with specifications that might also throw you for a loop - in a good way.

Sony SmartBand and Lifelog Camera hands-on

Sony SmartBand and Lifelog Camera hands-on

"Log your day, every day" Sony says, hoping that it's the SmartBand SWR10 you choose to do that with, not just a pen and paper. The company's new wearable was previewed back at CES last month but the company saved the details for Mobile World Congress, outlining how the Bluetooth-connected dongle - and, eventually, a Smart Lifelog Camera companion - could not only do the work of a fitness tracker but integrate in every facet of your life. We grabbed some hands-on time to find out more.

Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo hands-on

Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo hands-on

Samsung couldn't wait until Unpacked 5 to reveal the new Tizen-powered Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, updating the wearables will heart-rate monitors and more compact designs. The original Galaxy Gear caught our eye at its IFA 2013 launch but failed to set the smartwatch world alight, but Samsung is hoping more refined versions will. We spent some time with both models here at MWC 2014; read on for some first-impressions.

Samsung Gear Fit hands-on: Curved AMOLED health wearable

Samsung Gear Fit hands-on: Curved AMOLED health wearable

Let's be blunt: the Samsung Gear Fit looks just how we were hoping the original Galaxy Gear would in September last year, a sinuous strip of bright, curved OLED for your wrist. The health-centric sibling to the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, the Gear Fit has a smaller touchscreen - 1.84-inches and 423 x 128 resolution - but which does most of what the Neo can in a more space-age package. Read on for some first-impressions.
