Google Glass 2 Prototypes

Google Glass 2 prototypes reportedly already in the hands of developers

Despite the fact that Glass was all but a complete misfire for Google, the project isn’t going away any time soon. Earlier this month, Tony Fadell told The New York Times that “future products” in the Glass line won’t be subjected to the same public experimentation as the first-generation model.

So we probably won’t see “Google Glass 2” at every tech event in 2015, but if a report from 9to5Google is to be believed, prototypes of the new version of the device might already be in the hands of developers. More →

Celebrate the PS Vita’s birthday with this incredible sale

The PS Vita is one of the best portable consoles ever released, but Sony is far too concerned with the continued success of the PlayStation 4 to spend much time focusing on the Vita. Worst of all, Sony has been anything but quick to respond to fans who are worried about the future of the Vita.

This was most clearly illustrated during a short spell where it became impossible to even find a Vita. More →

Lenovo Adware Affected Applications

Lenovo’s adware disaster is even worse than we thought

Lenovo’s adware disaster is even worse than we thought

News broke late last week that Lenovo had been shipping laptops with man-in-the-middle adware preinstalled which could hijack HTTPS traffic and insert its own ads onto websites that users were visiting.

This major security threat was initially found lurking in just two pieces of software on Lenovo’s computers, but the number rose dramatically over the weekend as Ars Technica reports security researchers discovered more applications riddled with adware. As of Sunday, at least 14 applications have been found to use the technology which puts users at risk. More →

One magician needs nothing but an iPad to perform his magic tricks

Reading comments from Apple fans on around the Internet, it probably won’t take long to find someone referring to the iPad as a “magical” device. Although Apple’s tablet is undeniably one of the best on the market, it can’t bend the fabric of reality — at least, it couldn’t until German magician Simon Pierro got his hands on it. More →

It can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with all of them, which is why we’ve decided to collect our favorites into a single post. More →

PS4 Share Play Delete Data

Only use PS4’s Share Play with people you trust – here’s why

Only use PS4’s Share Play with people you trust – here’s why

Share Play is one of the most interesting features on the PlayStation 4. If you’ve never used it, Share Play allows you to hand over control of your game to another player over the Internet. You’ll still see the game on your TV, but another player will be running, jumping, shooting and climbing.

Unfortunately, that player might also be irreversibly erasing your progress too. More →

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge both to be revealed next week, according to Samsung’s ads

We can speculate all we want about what the major players in the mobile arena are going to reveal next week, but it makes it much easier when the companies themselves start dropping hints.

Earlier this month, Samsung included a mysterious image of a curved line on the invitation to its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event at MWC 2015. Now, two weeks later, Samsung has shared a new video which appears to show the profile of the upcoming Galaxy S6 — but this one is straight. More →

Android’s malware problem might be overstated, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be cautious when navigating the web on your device. On Wednesday, anti-virus software maker AVG reported that a newly discovered malware can continue to spy on you even after you think you’ve turned off your device. More →

Every time a new Android-based gaming console pops up on Kickstarter, I assume it will be the last, but ZRRO has something more to offer than what we’ve seen from the endless parade of Ouya knockoffs that have dominated the crowdfunding scene over the past few years. More →

Rock Band is reportedly being revived on PS4 and Xbox One

One of the biggest crossover hits in the history of multiplayer gaming vanished off the face of the Earth not with a bang, but with a whimper. Rock Band 3, the final game in the main Rock Band series as of now, launched on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii in 2010 to relatively disappointing sales. Consumers just weren’t as interested in huge plastic peripherals as they had been in years past.

Xbox One March update finally brings a simple feature you’ve been waiting for

The new generation of consoles can stream high-definition gameplay straight to Twitch, download huge games while asleep, open up the possibility of gaming over the cloud… but one of them still can’t take screenshots. Ever since launch, Xbox One owners have had the ability to record gameplay footage on their consoles, but they haven’t been able to capture single frames.

That’s finally going to change next month. More →
