The first big patch for Windows 10 is coming soon

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Operating Systems | Posted: 27 mins ago

If you've already installed Windows 10, you might have already received a few security updates and patches for your OS, but come next month, there will be a major, non-patch update for Windows 10 known as Threshold 2, or Wave 2.

 

first-big-patch-windows-10-coming-next-month_08

 

The new update will arrive in November after it has been delayed from its original October release window. The new Threshold 2 update will include a few smaller changes, as there is a bigger 'Redstone' update that will be released sometime in 2016. As for the patch expected in November, we are to expect a new Messaging app that will have Skype integration and Chrome-like extension support for Microsoft's Edge browser.

 

We will have more information on the patch in the near future, but I think the Redstone patch is going to be the big new interesting one, coming in 2016.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 4 mins ago

The v1.05 patch for Rocket League will arrive in "two weeks or less" bringing with it the start of the first season, not only that, but Rocket Leaguers will be able to filter out PS4 players in matchmatching on PC, and to search for new ranked matches at the endgame screen.

The new patch will also do the usual bug fixes that saw PC players to not have a name, fix chat issues, and improve corruption protection for saved games. The update will also have Middle Eastern servers that "will still come at some point" according to developer Psyonix. The developer will also be adding in a music player interface in the near future.

 

If you didn't already know about, is a vehicle-driven, off-the-wall soccer game where players attempt to score goals in hotted up cars and trucks.

Apple's upcoming 21.5-inch iMac should feature a 4K display

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Computer Systems | Posted: 6 hours, 32 mins ago

While Apple might have its September 29 event to unveil the new iPhone, it looks like we can expect a new 21.5-inch iMac to be unveiled sometime in the near future, too.

 

apples-upcoming-21-5-inch-imac-feature-4k-display_01

 

9to5Mac is behind the report, saying that the new 21.5-inch iMac would feature a 4K display. The current 27-inch iMac features a 5K display, but the new 21.5-inch iMac will done down the pixel density to 4096x2304, up from the current 1920x1080 resolution on the 21.5-inch iMac. The new 21.5-inch iMac won't be announced until sometime next month.

ASUS unveils a new super-powered gaming notebook that is watercooled

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: 7 hours, 55 mins ago

The ASUS ROG G751 is one of the most powerful gaming laptops on the market, but the Taiwanese giant has just one-upped itself with the new GX700 gaming notebook. What makes it so special? Well, it's watercooled. Frickin' watercooled.

The ASUS GX700 features a 17-inch screen with a 4K resolution, which is a first. Inside, we have the new Intel K-series Skylake processor, and an unreleased NVIDIA GeForce GPU. The CPU itself is reportedly the Core i7-6820HK, which has a 2.7GHz base frequency and Turbo clock of 3.6GHz. There's an insane 64GB of DDR4 RAM inside, and as for the GPU, it's an unreleased GeForce chip with 2048 CUDA cores, a 1190MHz GPU clock, 128 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 160GB/sec of memory bandwidth. The big difference between the G751 with its GTX 980M, is that the GTX 980M has 1536 CUDA cores, so this new GPU should be quite the jump.

 

asus-unveils-new-super-powered-gaming-notebook-watercooled_07

 

ASUS includes a huge 'docking base' with the GX700 which is just a standalone watercooling solution. The notebook itself is very similar in its cooling design to the G751, but the watercooling base is a huge change. When attached, it can increase performance by as much as 80% according to ASUS. This is because gaming notebooks throttle the GPU speeds when it's not adequately cooled.

Every single Deus Ex game can be purchased for under $7 right now

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 9 hours, 59 mins ago

With the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided set for February 2016, gamers need to get into the world of Deus Ex, and what better way than by getting every Deus Ex game released for just $6.59 from Steam?

The $6.59 bundle includes Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, Deus Ex: Invisible War, Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Director's Cut) and Deus Ex: The Fall. This is a steal, considering it would cost close to, or just over $200 if you paid nearly full price for all of the Deus Ex games when they were released.

 

The sale lasts for another 14 hours or so, so you will want to jump in quick.

Forza Motorsport 6 launch trailer is here, 1080p 60FPS on the Xbox One

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 14 mins ago

Now that the release of Forza Motorsport 6 is right around the corner, Turn 10 Studios has released the launch trailer of Forza Motorsport 6, teasing the beautiful weather effects, night racing, and career mode highlights of the Xbox One exclusive.

 

 

Forza 6 will be running at 1080p 60FPS on the APU-powered Xbox One, which is something worth highlighting because most games don't hit that mark on Microsoft's console. During Gamescom 2015 last month, Forza Motorsport 6 was called 'Best Racing Game' and 'Best Simulation Game', which are some serious awards for the Xbox One exclusive.

 

Forza Motorsport 6 drops onto the Xbox One on September 15, including over 450 cars all with working cockpits, opening doors, and even full damage. There will be 24-player matches throughout 26 real-world locations in wet weather, and night time racing.

6S Marketing hopes Apple names new phone the iPhone 7, not iPhone 6s

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 13 hours, 3 mins ago

6S Marketing may like iPhones and other Apple products, but hopes the new iPhone isn't dubbed the iPhone 6s. The company rented billboard space in Times Square, along with plastering trucks with a plea to Apple.

 

6s-marketing-hopes-apple-names-new-phone-iphone-7_01

 

You see, the company, which has offices in New York City, Toronto and Vancouver, doesn't want Apple to name its next-generation smartphone as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The new phone, which is expected to be unveiled later this month, could break 6S Marketing's hearts:

 

"See, our company name is 6S Marketing, but our clients, friends, and colleagues simply refer to us as good ol' "6S." It's a small name but a big part of our identity -- one we've been using since 2000, when we started this company in my tiny apartment. At that time, we didn't think that one of the biggest, and most well-respected, companies would use it to name a mobile device. (We were still using Motorola flip phones at the time, after all.)

Streaming music service Pandora invites everyone to enjoy one day of ad-free music, as the company celebrates its 10-year anniversary.

Despite the drastic rise of Spotify, Pandora still streams the most music out of all competing services - with almost 80 million listeners each month, listening to 74 billion hours of music, creating 8 billion stations, and sharing more than 55 billion thumbs over the past decade.

 

"From the first song Pandora played in 2005 to the 50 billionth we celebrated earlier this year, our mission has remained the same - to provide each of our listeners with the best music experience possible, whether an old favorite or introducing them to a new artist and style of music," said Tim Westergren, founder of Pandora. "Listener Love Day is a celebration of not only our listeners, but a day dedicated to great music."
