By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Wearable Computing | Posted: 22 mins ago

The LG G Watch Urbane is one of the slickest wearables unveiled in the last couple of months, but the new LTE-powered version of the watch will soon be made available, with a huge $590 cost.

It might not be as much as what Apple is asking for its Watch, and the $10,000 Watch, but it's quite expensive compared to Pebble Time at $179, Motorola's Moto 360 for $249, and Apple's Watch starting at $349. The G Watch Urbane is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. There'll also be LTE connectivity in the LTE-powered version, which will allow wearers to make and receive phone calls without having to tether to their smartphone.

Latest update to GTA V on Xbox One and PS4 gimps visuals

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 hour, 21 mins ago

Rockstar Games has pushed out an update to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V, where it has gimped the visuals on the 'next-gen' platforms.

 

 

The developer is aware of it, where it has said that it will fix the issue in an upcoming patch. Rockstar Games addressed the issue in a Q&A, where it asked: "After updating to Title Update 1.08 on PS4 and Xbox One, there appears to be a deterioration of graphical quality. Is Rockstar investigating this issue?" and answered it with: "We are aware of some graphical issues on the Xbox One and PS4 versions of GTAV after the most recent Title Update, and we are investigating a fix now".

Netflix 'Inspector Gadget' cartoon reboot gets a trailer

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 hour, 31 mins ago

For children of the 80's like me, 'Inspector Gadget' wasn't just the highlight of ABC TV or a trip to the video shop - it was probably my first pop culture obsession. Well either that or 'Thomas the Tank Engine. So it's with more than a passing interest that I was keen to check out the newly rebooted CG series which has been picked up by Netflix, and which has just released it's first trailer.

 

 

I'll be honest - first impressions don't seem great. And why the hell have they changed that classic theme song? The new 26-episode series hits the US Netflix platform today, before widening to other markets including Latin America, the U.K., Ireland, Benelux, France and the Nordics later in the year.

Facebook developing solar drones that will provide Internet access

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Science, Space & Robotics | Posted: 1 hour, 55 mins ago

Facebook is working on a new solar drone designed to provide Internet access to billions of people across the world. The codenamed Aquila project is still in the early stages of testing, but Facebook said one test flight was already conducted in the UK.

The Aquila drone weighs less than a car and has a wingspan similar to a Boeing 767, and should be able to fly for months at a time. The drone must be extremely light so it can stay at altitudes higher than 60,000 feet for up to three months at a time.

 

"Aircraft like these will help connect the whole world because they can affordably serve the 10 percent of the world's population that live in remote communities without existing Internet infrastructure," Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post.

NVIDIA preparing GeForce GTX 980 Ti with 6GB VRAM, faster than Titan X

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 2 hours, 23 mins ago

It seems like a given, but NVIDIA is preparing another VGA card for release in the very near future: the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. The GTX 980 Ti would be a cut down version of the GM200-powered Titan X, with 6GB framebuffer and it'll be around 10% faster than Titan X, too.

 

nvidia-preparing-geforce-gtx-980-ti-6gb-vram-faster-titan_03

 

According to SweClockers the new GeForce GTX 980 Ti would be the flagship card that NVIDIA will push, versus the Titan X. One of the reason this is, in my opinion, is that the new GTX 980 Ti can have add-in-board (AIB) partners play with the PCB and cooling setup, something that can't be done on the Titan X.

 

This will allow for some huge overclocks on the GTX 980 Ti, and some very exotic cooling setups. We should expect NVIDIA to unveil the GeForce GTX 980 Ti sometime in the second half of the year, after AMD launch its Radeon R9 390X.

Poll: American drivers can't make up our minds about self-driving cars

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Technology in Vehicles | Posted: 5 hours, 29 mins ago

Autonomous vehicles appear to be on the horizon in the United States, but one-third of drivers say they would never purchase a self-driving car, according to a recent Harris Poll.

In addition, more than one third of respondents believe autonomous vehicles might actually be the future of driving, and one quarter think the self-driving cars mimic something out of the Jetsons. Drivers can't seem to agree how safe autonomous vehicles are, with 52 percent revealing they think they are dangerous, while 48 percent believe it's safe for vehicle occupants.

 

Looking ahead, automakers will be able to sell autonomous vehicles when they work out the "bugs" involved, though one-third of drivers said they would never consider purchasing a self-driving car.

In addition, more than 100 billion multiplayer matches have been played online, with more than 300 billion grenades thrown.

 

Call of Duty still hasn't been able to keep up with Take-Two's Grand Theft Auto, selling more than 185 million copies. But CoD has racked up better sales than LEGO, Mario, FIFA, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, and Need for Speed - with all the series able to rack up more than 100 million units sold.
