Blade Shadow spreads nationwide, says ditch your gaming PC

The service known as Shadow by Blade spread across the United States this week in a newly minted USA-wide upgrade.

Valve’s Artifact card game launches in three months, PC first

Valve is perhaps best known for the Steam PC gaming platform but for those old enough to remember, the company has also been making games. As if going back to its roots, Valve announced last year that it was making a new game, one that built on its existing franchise but something it has never tried before: a trading card game. That is Artifact and Valve’s first new game in five years will head to PCs in November and eventually to mobile as well.

Galaxy Note 9 may replace your PC with just a USB-C cord

There's a feature in the Samsung Galaxy S9, most recently, which allows Samsung phones to be their own miniature PC replacements. It's called DeX, aka Dockless Desktop, and it's actually pretty neat. It wasn't perfect the last time we took a closer look at it*, but it was certainly on the right track. Now, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, there's a real possibility that DeX will become a whole lot easier to get into right out the box.

PCs are on the rise again after six years: here’s why

PCs are on the rise again after six years: here’s why

For years now, prophets of doom have been talking about the death of the PC. To some extent, they are right. The PC of old have gone the way of the dodo and today’s PCs have very little in common with them. Last week, both Gartner and IDC published numbers that, for the first time in six years, showed growth for the steadily shrinking market. And while both market researchers advise cautious optimism, it’s hard to deny the trend that their statistics show: the PC isn’t going anywhere.

Mikme now also a USB mic for PCs, Silver version launches

There are, however, a few outstanding exceptions. nura just recently launched their nuraphone G2 firmware update that granted the old headphones new powers. Now Mikme is doing the same with an update that, almost ironically, turns the world’s first wireless for smartphones into a USB mic for PCs and Macs.

Surprise! PC sales grow for first time since 2012

For the first time in the last SIX YEARS, PC shipment numbers grew worldwide. This is according to analysts at Gartner, who suggest that this year-over-year growth in global PC shipments is a temporary situation.

Lenovo ThinkStation P330 line gets refreshed with a trio of smaller PCs

Lenovo has just announced a new entry-level trio of ThinkStation PCs, refreshing the P-series with a lineup of P330 machines.

In fact, with P330 SFF, Lenovo has managed to reduce its overall footprint by 30% over its predecessor.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit launches to pull at hearstrings

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit launches to pull at hearstrings

What better way to build up hype for an upcoming sequel than by launching a “mini game” interlude. That’s almost what Square Enix and developers DONTNOD Entertainment, but that would be an unfair characterization of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Set in the world of Life is Strange and promised to have ties with Life is Strange 2, the game is pretty much like a demo in length and complexity but hits upon themes that make it worthy of being a standalone masterpiece.
