The evolution of video games is pretty obvious — just look at the difference between, say, the original Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart 8 to see the insane improvements video games have made to graphics since the 1980s. But the games themselves aren’t the only things that have evolved, as console controllers have undergone some drastic changes over the years as well. More →

This beer claims it actually can make you smarter

By about 3 hours ago.

Although some people may see beer drinking as a sport, for others it can be a useful tool, especially creative individuals who’re stuck with writer’s block or other artistic impediments. As Engadget reports, University of Illinois Professor Jennifer Wiley discovered that a blood alcohol level of 0.075 will make a person reach their creative peak because drinking a certain amount of booze lowers the chances that they over think what they’re doing.

By about 4 hours ago.

Plenty of studies have shown that iPhone users upgrade their handsets more often than other smartphone users. But what should you do with that old iPhone once you have upgraded to a new one? There are plenty of good options out there, and some of the most common ones include selling your old phone using a site like eBay or Craigslist, trading it in for credit toward the purchase of a new phone, or giving it away to a friend or loved one.

But there’s another option you might not be aware of that is incredibly useful and completely free. More →

BlackBerry is working on a top-secret phone that does something unheard of

By about 7 hours ago.

We first heard about Boeing’s top-secret new smartphone called the Boeing Black earlier this year but this is the first time we’ve heard of BlackBerry’s involvement in the project. Reuters reports that BlackBerry CEO John Chen said late last week that he was “pleased to announce that Boeing is collaborating with BlackBerry to provide a secure mobile solution for Android devices utilizing our BES 12 platform.” Chen added that this was literally all he was allowed to say about the project, so we shouldn’t expect to learn anymore details about it from him in the near future.

By about 8 hours ago.

The first time I saw a prototype of Google’s self-driving car, I couldn’t help but laugh. I mean, look at it. It’s ridiculous. I joked on Twitter about a special Easter egg that could be uncovered by combining the geekiness of Google’s self-driving car with Google Glass, and people’s responses seemed to indicate that they agreed: It looks silly.

But make no mistake about it: This funny-looking car is the future. More →

Best Android Camera

This great free app is the camera your Android phone deserves

This great free app is the camera your Android phone deserves

By about 9 hours ago.

Early Android phones had awful cameras that took poor quality photos, but that has completely changed in the modern smartphone era. The gap in quality between pictures captured on iPhones and pictures taken on high-end Android phones has narrowed to a sliver, and there are even some Android handsets that offer camera quality that is arguably better than Apple’s iPhones.

Camera software is a different story though, and Android vendors often build default camera apps that are overly complex and very difficult to use. Thankfully there are some third-party offerings that tone down the bells and whistles to help you focus more on the essentials, and A Better Camera is one of the best options we’ve found thus far.
