Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Just after T-Mobile brought their LTE version of the Nexus 9 tablet to the masses, Google Play released theirs as well. These two devices will be effectively the same, the only difference being - perhaps - that the T-Mobile USA version might end up loading some (deletable) T-Mobile apps once the LTE SIM card is activated. Both devices are on sale this afternoon, both online - it would also appear that both devices will share essentially the same price point at just under 600 dollars for a 32GB internal storage size unit.

Google Project Tango orders arriving for developers

Google's Project Tango has begun shipping, with the 3D tracking tablet arriving on developers' desks this week as they get started on new ways to blend the real-world with its digital counterpart. Pre-orders of the NVIDIA-powered Android slate began midway through this month, at a not-inconsiderable $1,024, though the sales window wasn't kept open for long.

Samsung demands NVIDIA sales ban in patent retort

Samsung demands NVIDIA sales ban in patent retort

Samsung has shown it's not afraid to chase big legal injunctions when it believes its patents are at stake, and now it's NVIDIA facing a US sales block at the hands of the South Korean firm. A complaint filed on Friday asks the US International Trade Commission to shut down sales of NVIDIA's graphics chips, alleging they infringe Samsung's own intellectual property. As with Apple, however, Samsung didn't actually pull the trigger first: it was NVIDIA which kicked off this particular war.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

This week we've had a look at what it means to be rolling with the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with a full Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. This isn't your everyday average upgrade - it's not like we're using the Nexus 9 that just happens to be branded by NVIDIA. Instead, this is the first non-Nexus tablet to receive the update, complete with NVIDIA's own apps under the hood. This is more than just a software update just for the sake of having the latest and greatest - this is a real-deal update of the abilities of the unit.

IBM and NVIDIA give US supercomputers a brain boost

IBM and NVIDIA give US supercomputers a brain boost

US supercomputers are having to grow up, with a wider set of tasks the machines at Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories are being asked to do by the researchers, national security teams, and others given access to them demanding a change in architecture in order to keep them flexible. IBM and NVIDIA are upgrading two supercomputers - Sierra at Lawrence Livermore, and Summit at Oak Ridge - using IBM's support for the open-source OpenPOWER standard, increasing the interconnect speed of the CPU and GPU processors responsible for doing all the heavy-duty crunching. In fact, so the companies claim, there'll be as much as a tenfold cut in processing time for real-world applications.

Should you give Ubisoft a break on Assassin’s Creed Unity?

Should you give Ubisoft a break on Assassin’s Creed Unity?

This week is not a great one for Ubisoft. They've been hit relatively hard for their slightly lackluster release of Assassin's Creed: Unity, with reviewers finding the game less than perfect in some cases and downright unplayable in others. But what if Ubisoft had waited? What if they delayed again - past the two weeks delay they'd noted back in August? At what point does it make sense to release a product that's unfinished? At what point does a development team have to stop and release?
