Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

The Acer Predator 17 is not just a good first-shot from a relatively new gaming line, it's a darn good notebook in and of itself. This laptop is large enough to give you a full gaming experience without being so bulky you'll never move it from your desk. This laptop is also clearly a gaming machine, but doesn't look like you decided on your hardware's look when you were young and foolish. In short - this is the gaming laptop you want if you're not afraid to go big, but don't want to drop cash on just any ol' run-of-the-mill flashy gamer unit.

This week we're having a peek at a couple of leaks indicative of the interior details of the Samsung Galaxy S7.

House of Marley unveils a simple, elegant turntable

House of Marley unveils a simple, elegant turntable

The electronics team at House of Marley have revealed a collection of new odds and ends, the most radical of which is a "classic turntable" by the name "Stir It Up". If you've not heard of House of Marley before - yes, it is referring to the same Bob Marley you already know about, rolling with the brand to promote "good living and shared experiences". They donate proceeds of annual profits to 1Love (1love.org) "a global movement dedicated to advancing Bob Marley's message to a new generation of cause-minded agents for growth and transformation." Now they've got a turntable.

Samsung Galaxy S7 video shows detailed simplicity

Samsung Galaxy S7 video shows detailed simplicity

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is said to appear in a video made with specifications of a machine that won't be released for several weeks at least. This device being shown is a rendering - not a real release-ready device, but a 3D model made with details taken from what the designer implies are case-maker models. This would mean that the exact look may be different, but the basics would be all here, ready to show themselves to you in from all angles with ease.

USB-C Android connection options: here’s the future

This week we're having a look at some devices and technologies that you may well be using for the first time. If not because you got a brand new smartphone for the holidays, then because you're at your Grandparents' house fiddling with the gear you don't often pay as close attention to otherwise. What we're having a peek at today is using a USB-C cord with your Android device. Specifically, what we're looking at, is what happens when you connect one Android device with USB-C to another (that also uses USB-C.)

Is this early Samsung Galaxy S7 rendering wild enough for you?

Is this early Samsung Galaxy S7 rendering wild enough for you?

What you're about to witness is a video of what may very well be the Samsung Galaxy S7 visualized. The video hasn't been made by Samsung, nor is it based on any real in-hand models of the device. Nobody outside of Samsung knows exactly what the Samsung Galaxy S7 looks like yet - not even the most prolific of leaksters know for certain. But what you're about to witness might blow your mind if you expect the unexpected.

Samsung Galaxy S7, Note 6 expandable “fluency” details appear

Samsung Galaxy S7, Note 6 expandable “fluency” details appear

This next season for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be one of "fluency" for software. Word from sources in China (one of the several countries where Samsung's manufacturing process takes place) is that Samsung's upgrade cycle will switch gears from hardware to software this year - fitting in well with the rumors we've reported earlier this year. As the Samsung Galaxy S6 presented a new look and feel for the hardware of the Galaxy smartphone line, next year's Galaxy S7 family of devices will look similar, but will be pushed in a big way in its software build.

Inside the Razer Leviathan Mini you're going to get some deep, booming sound. That's for certain. If you connect this speaker to your Android device, you'll be able to say "OK Google" to it just fine - it uses what Razer calls "Clear Voice Capture" technology - you can use it as a speakerphone for your phone, too. But what is the Razer Leviathan Mini best at? Audio for your TV? Not so much. Wireless music. Wireless music in twos.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date equals no need for USB-C speed

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date equals no need for USB-C speed

Today we're talking all about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and its USB connector, especially when it comes to connecting quick. When your device uses a standard micro-USB port (USB 3.0), you're able to connect to a massive amount of products. When your device switches over to USB-C, you've suddenly cut yourself off from many years of accessories, including the high-profile virtual reality headset you just released. Will Samsung release a Galaxy S7 just a few months into 2016 with a port that's incompatible with the GearVR? I don't think so.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Duo Pixel: modular pieces, retro expansion

If you remember the Samsung Galaxy Camera, you remember how nice it was to be able to upload photos from your very capable handheld shooter. That wasn't all that common a feature for cameras at the time. Now, here at the tail end of 2016, devices like the Galaxy S6 smartphone have better camera setups in a much smaller body. Today also we're having a peek at what may be a leap forward in photography for smartphones of the Samsung Galaxy S7 (2016) age.

Each new piece of manufacturing tells us more about the direction the company is going in. And with a number of insider sources speaking up over the past couple of weeks amid shouts from the masses for a more substantial effort from Microsoft, it might be time, sooner than you think. Sooner than the end of next year, that is to say.
