Fake MSI website offers Afterburner app with possible malware

Fake MSI website offers Afterburner app with possible malware

When access to a popular resource suddenly disappears, people are likely to search for an alternative source, no matter where it comes from. That's true for websites but even more so for software and apps which can carry some unfortunate consequences. That might be the case with MSI's popular Afterburner tool that suddenly became unavailable without much warning and was, at least briefly, imitated by an almost convincing fraudulent website that could have caused unwitting users to download some malware instead.

Smach Z gaming PC handheld becomes another cautionary tale

Smach Z gaming PC handheld becomes another cautionary tale

There is no shortage of gaming handhelds today running a full Windows 10 OS, at least if you know where to look. From the GPD WIN 3 to the AYA Neo to the new ONEXPLAYER, there are now a few choices when it comes to bringing your PC games with you on the go. Back in 2014, however, that idea was revolutionary and a small team tried to make that happen before anyone else did. Of course, the Smach Z went via the crowdfunding route and, while it was successfully funded, it has now become yet another anecdote on how such dreams not only fail but also deprive people of their hard-earned money.

Lenovo Go accessory brand launched for hybrid work arrangements

Lenovo Go accessory brand launched for hybrid work arrangements

Last year saw many office workers find themselves working mostly from home. Even as restrictions get lifted, however, some businesses have embraced arrangements that have employees working remotely most or some of the time. This kind of hybrid workspaces and arrangements also require more flexible tools to keep up with ever-changing situations. That's why Lenovo is now launching a new brand of accessories designed exactly for that but, of course, these Lenovo Go products are pretty much just new faces in an already saturated PC accessory market.

Nokia 2720 V Flip comes to the US through Verizon

Nokia 2720 V Flip comes to the US through Verizon

HMD Global isn't just making Android phones with Nokia's name on them, it is also making feature phones with Nokia's name on them. The company has been reviving Nokia's most iconic handsets and nothing probably gets more iconic than the clamshell form-factor that is always depicted on TV and movies back in the days. That revival arrived with the Nokia 2720 Flip back in 2019 and that same phone is finally arriving in the US as the Nokia 2720 V Flip, courtesy of Verizon.

Verizon Galaxy Tab S6 finally gets Android 11 and One UI 3.1

Verizon Galaxy Tab S6 finally gets Android 11 and One UI 3.1

Samsung has been making big promises and improvements to the way it rolls out Android updates but some might feel it only applies to its high-end phones. Fortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case and Samsung has also been paying attention not only to its mid-range Galaxy A series but also to its tablets. Of course, carriers might not always be as fast and it's only two months later that Verizon's version of the Galaxy Tab S6 is getting its overdue One UI 3.1 with Android 11 update.

MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G wants to level up mid-range phones

MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G wants to level up mid-range phones

Qualcomm, as always, focuses heavily on the high-end, premium market where it's able to make the most profits from each unit sold. It does also have chips that cater to lower tiers but that is also where MediaTek's processors are better known. That even applies to the young 5G market where MediaTek's Dimensity brand is trying to establish a foothold before Qualcomm can stake a claim. Its latest attempt is the Dimensity 900 5G which flaunts Dual 5G support as one of its special features.

If you've been on Twitter for a while, particularly if you use it for networking, you've probably amassed a bunch of direct messages.

Now it is back with the latest evolution of this effort, one that has finally arrived on Android.

Google DVD screensaver to see the bouncing logo

There's a new Easter Egg in Google search right now, if you care to take a peek. This is different from the website that focuses on the Bouncing DVD Logo, but not entirely different from what you'd expect from such a logo.

Why is this weird iPhone 13 M1 concept so compelling?

Why is this weird iPhone 13 M1 concept so compelling?

There's an iPhone 13 M1 concept phone making the rounds this week with a design that's quite odd. The design sits on the edge of a nightmare, pushing the top of the phone up on one half, while the other stays down, making room for a set of front-facing cameras and/or sensors. If this concept were done with less finesse, it would be pretty easy to dismiss. But for some reason, it looks amazing.
