Dell retires Alienware X51 line, Aurora, Alpha to carry on

It appears Android tablets aren't the only ones getting the boot over at Dell. The PC maker has just revealed that it is putting to rest the rather young gaming PC line that brought it much attention in the past years. After just four years, the Alienware X51 is being put to pasture. Dell naturally gives no reason in its eulogy for its demise, only that it was time to pass on the baton. To whom? To two PCs that couldn't be any more different from the X51.

“BATMAN – The Telltale Series” launch date announced

There's a new bat in town, and it ain't your older brother's Batman. In development, and teased, for quite some time now, "BATMAN - The Telltale Series" is a video game that takes quite a different stab at the uber popular Dark Night.

Even Apple is having a tough time selling PCs, says IDC

Even Apple is having a tough time selling PCs, says IDC

The term "PC" is hardly something anyone, especially Apple, would use to label its Mac computers. After all, it popularized the Mac vs PC ads. But for the sake of statistics and to show that everyone is affected by the PC slump, that is exactly what market analyst IDC did. Labels aside, IDC's figures do reveal how even Apple, whose Macs have traditionally done better even in the face of the PC market's decline, is having some number problems when it comes to shipments.

Microsoft apologizes for Xbox Play Anywhere miscommunication

Microsoft apologizes for Xbox Play Anywhere miscommunication
