NVIDIA shows some Tegra Note 7 love with Android 5.1

If you've invested in one of a few "NVIDIA Tegra Note 7" tablets, sold by other companies of course, and have been green with envy over all the attention showered on NVIDIA's SHIELD devices, then maybe its time for a change of color. Somewhat out of the blue, NVIDIA rather quietly started to roll out a massive OTA update to the stylus-enabled tablet, pulling the Tegra Note 7 from Android Jelly Bean and right into Android 5.1 Lollipop territory, extending the device's lifetime by just a bit.

When not to upgrade Android: NVIDIA’s Lollipop edition

This afternoon NVIDIA gave one of the very rare examples of an instance in which you might NOT want to upgrade your Android device to a new software version. NVIDIA is upgrading their original NVIDIA SHIELD Portable to Android 5.1 Lollipop, and in the process they're having to remove a couple of features. These aren't necessarily features you'll have been using regularly, mind you, but this sort of thing DOES happen from time to time. Have a peek and see what you're getting - and what you're taking away.

2017 Audi R8 First Drive – All supercar, no compromises

2017 Audi R8 First Drive – All supercar, no compromises

There’s driving, and then there’s driving a car that thinks it’s a racer. Thing is, the Audi R8 has the credentials to back that up, born from an unmistakably noble family of champions and given the same name as a Le Mans winning sports car. For the 2017 R8, Audi turned to the same engineering team that developed the Nurburgring 24 Hours-winning R8 LMS race car, including half a shared parts bucket. It’s something I found hard to forget when Audi invited SlashGear to Portugal, to be among the first to try the new R8 on the track.

“Smaug” Chromebook with Tegra X1 might be coming soon

“Smaug” Chromebook with Tegra X1 might be coming soon

The NVIDIA Tegra X1 might be one of if not the most powerful, non-overheating mobile processor around but it is sadly found only in one solitary consumer device, the new Android TV NVIDIA SHIELD. That, however, might soon be changing with sightings of the Tegra X1 making its way to a class of consumer electronics that needs all that muscle the least: Chromebooks. If all the stars align, a certain board codenamed "Smaug" might be the foundations of a rare ARM-based Chromebook powered by the Tegra X1.

Razer acquires OUYA officially

Razer acquires OUYA officially

In a move that'll likely put them in competition direct with the likes of NVIDIA, Razer has acquired Android console-maker OUYA. This tiny machine - the OUYA - was created back before Android TV was a reality, making headway in the "Android console" space before Android was prepared to live in the living room. Over the past couple of years the company hasn't done especially well for itself, falling a bit behind in the market as it fails to summon the explosive response elicited with its original launch.

NVIDIA’s new AndroidWorks embraces even non-Tegra devices

NVIDIA’s new AndroidWorks embraces even non-Tegra devices

NVIDIA just launched its shiny new SHIELD console, both the regular 16 GB model and the 500 GB "Pro" version, just in time for Google I/O last week and Computex this week. But as sweet as a gaming device might be, it's strength can only really be measured by the amount of content available for it. And to help create more content for its SHIELD devices, which in this case means Android games, NVIDIA is introducing a new tool based off its GameWorks tools called, what else, AndroidWorks.
