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

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Computer Systems | Posted: 1 min 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.

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: 1 hour, 24 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 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.

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 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: 4 hours, 43 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: 6 hours, 32 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.

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.)

Pandora announces Listener Love Day on Sept. 9, a day of ad-free music

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Internet & Websites | Posted: 7 hours, 46 mins ago

Streaming music service Pandora invites everyone to enjoy one day of ad-free music, as the company celebrates its 10-year anniversary. The special day takes place on Wednesday, September 9, and is fully sponsored by Pandora One - so from 12:00 am ET until 12:00AM ET Thursday, anyone can listen to ad-free music.

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."

Xbox manager: 2015 shaping up to be best year of gaming since 2007

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming | Posted: 7 hours, 55 mins ago

It doesn't matter if you're a PC gamer or console owner, this looks like a fantastic time to be playing video games. Microsoft Xbox product manager Patrick Perkins recently described it as the strongest gaming period in almost 10 years, with plenty of high-profile titles that have either launched - or will launch in the next several quarters.

"Before we even launched the Xbox One, we knew that this was the year," Perkins recently said while speaking on the GameStop Expo livestream. "You just look at the development cycles and when everything's going to come together."

 

While speaking on the livestream, Perkins compared the upcoming 2015 holiday and early 2016 gaming season to that of 2007 holiday and early 2008 - when games such as Assassin's Creed, Halo 3, BioShock, Rock Band, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Mass Effect launched. Of course, games such as The Witcher, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Crysis, and Super Mario Galaxy also were released in that same time frame.

Entrepreneur voices concerns robots could have on human workforce

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Science, Space & Robotics | Posted: 8 hours, 51 mins ago

Tech entrepreneur and author Martin Ford has again expressed concern that robots will take over the workforce, stealing much-needed jobs from human workers.

"It's not just about doing manual labor as it was in the past," Ford recently said. "Now we've got robots and machines and algorithms that are taking over brain power and it's much more broad-based, it's ubiquitous. These technologies are everywhere; they're going to invade every industry across the board."

 

Ford recommends humans create some time of contingency plan, especially if the already competitive workplace faces added pressure from robotic automation. It may be a while before artificial intelligence (AI) - which some experts have showed concern regarding - actually goes mainstream, though robotic automation is already happening.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's pre-order scheme could change everything

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 15 hours, 56 mins ago

Square Enix recently revealed the official release date for sci-fi wonder Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, but the celebration was dampened with a strange pre-order scheme that could have a huge impact on the future of the games industry.

 

 

The studio's neo-noir augmented dystopian sci-fantasy Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks to be one of the best games in recent memory, and it now has a release date of February 23, 2016. Unless enough people pre-order the game--then it'll release four days earlier on February 19, 2016. To get the game early a good portion of gamers will have to pay up front and everyone gets the game early...this time.

 

In the future might be different. What if there are actually two release dates for games: the early pre-orderers who acted like early adopters in a weird sort of Early Access for AAA games, and the regular joes who get access to the game later. If this kind of disparity is created it'll likely eschew an exodus towards pre-buying as the mainstream public will probably want to get their game as soon as possible--it's the same price, right, so what's the big deal?
