Why is this Red Magic phone so compelling? Showmanship.

Why is this Red Magic phone so compelling? Showmanship.

This morning I received an email from "Red Magic Team" about a new smartphone. This group of creators works with Nubia, a smartphone company most haven't heard of - part of the brand ZTE, a brand you've most likely heard of, especially very recently.

Myst 25th anniversary Kickstarter brings all 7 titles to Windows 10

Although it’s arguably not as iconic as, say, Doom, Cyan World’s Myst has a cult following that the 90s gaming market by surprise and have been referenced in pop culture and media time and again. Since its initial release, the game has produced 5 sequels and one 3D “remake”. Given its age, however, not all those titles have become available or work on the latest Windows systems.

Light Phone 2 adds messaging to super-simple anti-smartphone

The Light Phone is back, and it's loosening its "naught but calls" policy to embrace the fact that not everybody likes to talk. Freshly announced today, the Light Phone 2 sets minimalistic simplicity as its lodestar: a black & white E Ink touchscreen, a few simple services, and a design more akin to a stack of credit cards than a phone. Rather than trying to replace your iPhone or Galaxy entirely, the idea is that there'll be times you don't want everything a smartphone can offer tempting you from your pocket or purse.

Lexip gaming mouse has two joysticks for all your movement needs

Lexip gaming mouse has two joysticks for all your movement needs

The venerable computer mouse was never really envisioned to be anything beyond a pointing device. It definitely wasn’t envisioned to be a gaming input device. And yet the mouse, along with the keyboard, has practically defined and differentiated PC gaming from other forms of gaming. That, however, doesn’t mean it’s not in dire need of an innovation.
