By: Chris Smith | More News: Modding | Posted: 32 mins ago

Here at TweakTown we recently covered Stuart Tonks' dual Intel Xeon addition to the 2015 Thermaltake CaseMOD invitational, but we noticed that one of the seven modders was being a little left out - Japan's Fabio Moma.

Sponsored by Thermaltake, Avexir, ASUS ROG and Kingston HyperX, this blue-lit build of Thermaltake's Core series chassis is adeptly named 'Colossus X' and features some neat LED work to help produce a cool-feeling futuristic build - said to be "based on the comic book heroes" as pointed out in Moma's build log.

 

Complete with an extremely polished front panel, the components within can be viewed in the full story.

By: Chris Smith | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: 2 hours, 29 mins ago

We've started covering a few different brands here recently on TweakTown in order to give everyone a feel for what is happening on the technology market from end to end. In recent news, Anidees has released its new AI6 v2 chassis, further perpetuating the minimalistic trend as seen in recent years.

The new Need for Speed is coming coupled with wild feature claims

By: Chris Smith | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 hours, 27 mins ago

After we reported on the new New for Speed release information said to be coming on May 21st - we were certainly correct.

 

 

As seen in a recent press release, Ghost Games, an EA studio, has announced the return of Need for Speed and a "full reboot of this storied franchise." Featuring advanced customization, urban car culture, a nocturnal open world and intense narrative this upcoming title is making big claims from the get-go.

 

Said to be involving car culture from past, present and future, we're interested to see how much research Ghost Games and EA have done into exactly what is to be included. For those interested in cars, I'm wondering if we're going to see a great tribute to Paul Walker (think: World of Warcraft's tribute to Robin Williams) alongside an abundance of Toyota/Subaru/Scion FT86 cars everywhere 'modded' with coilovers and rims.

The US has released the al-Qaeda application form for digital reading

By: Chris Smith | More News: Business, Politics & Money | Posted: 3 hours, 39 mins ago

Alongside asking for the name of your grandfather and what occupation your father holds, al-Qaeda's application form is a quite extensive piece of writing as seen on Vox and released by the US Government recently as it has now been declassified.

 

released-al-qaeda-application-form-digital-reading_072

 

This form was found as part of Osama Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad and is now available for public reading. Alongside in-depth religious questions, the applicant is asked about previous military experience, personal hobbies and investigations on if the prospective al-Qaeda employee has any relations to Pakistan.

 

Written quite well, it's certainly an interesting insight into what helps back al-Qaeda. It may look basic to you on the news, but there is some form of administration that must keep the whole thing afloat and this form helps portray that. Another interesting point is that it asks the applicant if they "wish to execute a suicide operation".

By: Chris Smith | More News: Audio, Sound & Speakers | Posted: 4 hours, 22 mins ago

How many editions of the Razer DeathAdder is there? Quite a few is the answer. Tt eSPORTS has caught on to this re-release trend as seen with other big brands (the SteelSeries Siberia and Sensei too), demonstrated through the recent announcement of the 2015 CRONOS headset headset.

YouTube now allows 60FPS for live streaming on HTML5 browsers

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Internet & Websites | Posted: 5 hours, 24 mins ago

YouTube has just launched a new gaming-focused feature into its arsenal, with 60FPS live streaming now available as "an early preview on HTML5-compatible browsers".

 

youtube-now-allows-60fps-live-streaming-html5-browsers_04

 

The Google-owned video streaming site explained in a post on the YouTube Partners & Creators Blog: "When you start a live stream on YouTube at 60fps, we'll transcode your stream into 720p60 and 1080p60, which means silky smooth playback for gaming and other fast-action videos. We'll also make your stream available in 30fps on devices where high frame rate viewing is not yet available, while we work to expand support in the coming weeks".

 

YouTube worked together with Elgato and XSplit in order to create software that was capable of handling 60FPS streaming.

Unknown VR glasses option boasts incredible performance

By: Chris Smith | More News: Wearable Computing | Posted: 6 hours, 28 mins ago

What if I told you that these VR glasses can work with any Bluetooth device? What about if I told you that this product offers a claimed 2K resolution, a 120hz refresh rate and a lightweight design all wrapped up into one small package?

You'd likely join many other users in doubting the legitimacy of these claims - "Better features than Oculus without anyone knowing who you are? Impossible!" exclaims friends on my Facebook news feed. However, we're going to sit here and cross our fingers really hard that it's a reality.

 

The company on display here is Dlodo. Coming out of China, these Virtual Reality innovators are pushing their first product to the market, self named as 'Dlodlo VR Glasses'. Photoshopped product images aside, the spec sheet is certainly astounding and shows direct comparisons between what this new company has on offer when compared to other players in the market.

Spotify's new Running mode, music based on the rhythm of your feet

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Apps | Posted: 6 hours, 41 mins ago

In an interesting move, streaming music giant Spotify has just announced Spotify Running. Running will detect your running page, rhythm of your feet, and from that information, select songs that are matching the way you run. Spotify Running is exclusive to iOS for the moment, with no ETA on the Android version.

 

 

Spotify will be delivering this new feature to Nike and RunKeeper in the near future, with the company announcing it has formed partnerships with the two fitness-focused companies. Spotify also wants to provide users with 3 key elements: the perfect soundtrack for any part of your day, new types of content, and better experiences with innovative solutions.

 

While there's nothing revolutionary here, it's an evolutionary step for Spotify, soemthing that will help them better compete against the likes of Apple iTunes and Google Play Music.
