This Android Wear-utilizing device will come to with a 1.63-inch 320 x 320 pixel display, connectivity to your Android device so long as it’s running KitKat, and full IP68 weatherproofing.

Is Xbox One’s Kinect dead?

Is Xbox One’s Kinect dead?

Earlier this year Microsoft revealed their response to the $100-cheaper PlayStation 4 in the form of an Xbox One without the Kinect. Previous to this reveal of the $399 Kinect-less Xbox One, there’d only been the Xbox One with Kinect, now called a "bundle", that was $499. Microsoft reported in July that their June Xbox One console sales had "more than doubled" due to the new standard sans-Kinect release. Fast-forward to October of 2014 - right now, that is - and that Kinect "bundle" might be on its way out the door completely.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

Welcome back to what I consider the world’s most versatile tablet. When I reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet just a few weeks ago in its Wi-Fi edition, it became immediately clear what NVIDIA was aiming for - a tablet that’s made for gamers, but rolls with the punches for anyone else that might want to take a stab at it. With the LTE version of this slate, I honestly can’t think of a tablet better suited to be my one companion for travel, at-home entertainment, and gaming.
