Seagate's impressive little Backup Plus 4TB is one of the only drives of this capacity in the small 2.5' form factor. And it performs well, too.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: TweakTown | Posted: 15 mins ago

Not only are we looking for US-based news reporters, but we are on the lookout for a US-based video professional, too. TweakTown is wanting to step into the world of video content in a big way, so we need a professional video guy or girl, too.

 

looking-professional-youtuber-video-content_1

 

The candidate would need extensive experience in video content, with previous bodies of work as an example before applying. Preferably, we are looking for someone who is already in the industry who might work for a smaller site or company (or even on your own) and wants to join the big leagues, but you don't need to be intimidated by this. You might do kick ass work and just haven't been noticed yet, so this is your chance!

 

We would need someone based in the US who is willing to travel to trade shows and expos around the world, including CES in Vegas, E3 in LA, Computex in Taipei, and more. We are looking for someone who has considerable experience in YouTube, Vessel, and more - and has no issues dealing with deadlines. There's no super amount of technology expertise required, but this would be an advantage.

 

Previous experience is preferred, especially when it comes to trade shows and product reviews or unboxings of products. As we said, this isn't required, but it will go in your favor. This is a paid position, as we are looking for someone to grow into our team for the long term. We aren't looking for someone for a 3-6 month period or temporary, but someone who wants to build a future with TweakTown.

 

If you want to apply, send an email with your name, details, links to your work and why you think you'll be great for the job to jobs@tweaktown.com and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

The candidate will of course need to be based in the United States, with the West Coast being preferred. The candidate would be required to have above average English and grammar skills, and a large interest in technology and games. Previous experience isn't required, but it is definitely favorable. You'll of course need Internet access, a computer of some sort to write on, and the time required (which varies depending on your typing speed, and how quickly you get used to writing news, hopefully for a living).

 

This is a paid position, where you'll start off on a trial for 1-2 weeks before joining our awesome news crew led by yours truly. We are looking for a serious candidate, so if you're working a full-time job, you'll have to think twice before applying. The candidate would also have to be excited about attending local technology and game trade shows, such as the Consumer Electronic Show in Vegas, E3 in LA, and more.

 

If you'd like to apply, send us an email with a few details about yourself to jobs@tweaktown.com - include your name, previous experience, where you're based, and then a little on why you think you'd be perfect for the job. Please remember, we're looking for serious candidates, as this will turn into a full-time position. There's a large future for you here at TweakTown, yes you - so apply now!

How Fallout 4's perk system might work

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 hours, 55 mins ago

Fallout 4 is a pretty complex and dynamic game, and lots of gamers are stumped when it comes to the new perk system. Below we make an educated guess based off of data and speculation on how Fallout 4's perk and leveling system might work.

 

fallout-4s-perk-system-work_6

 

A recent OXM interview with a Bethesda rep has prompted a dizzying level of confusion in the Fallout community, leading to rampant speculation and millions of gamers scratching their heads. "You'll still level up via XP, and each level increase will still give you a point to spend on a perk, but now those perks have varying XP levels of their own," says the Bethesda employee. "It's perk-ception, essentially, and means that, should you theoretically play long enough to max out every tier of every single one gaining untold buffs and no doubt all kinds of horrendous real-world illnesses in the process - you'll top off with a total of 275."

 

Perk-ception? Perk level ups? How does that work exactly? Also does this mean there actually is a level cap after all? I believe the concept is pretty hard to explain in just words, and the rep was put on the spot and wasn't prepared to adequately explain the system. Which makes sense, as Todd Howard says Bethsoft won't spoil Fallout 4, and this could ruin some surprises.

The fully-optioned Tesla Model X electric SUV costs a huge $143,750

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Technology in Vehicles | Posted: 8 hours, 47 mins ago

If you've got $143,750 burning a hole in your pocket, why not get yourself (or me if you're feeling generous) the new Tesla Motors Model X electric SUV.

The fully tricked out model, including the Ludicrous mode, towing and cold weather packages will set you back $143,750. The limited edition first-run 'Signature Series' Model X will cost $132,000 - so the additional extras are only costing $11,750 more which isn't too bad at all. The Signature Series Model X will include every feature that Tesla offers, including Autopilot.

The laptop supports the 12.5-inch diagonal IPS touchscreen display (3840x2160), and runs the 6th Gen Intel Core processor. It weighs just 2.8 pounds, and has been designed to be an ultimate travel companion for power users on the go. It also supports Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience modes.

 

"Toshiba has made significant investments to deliver an exceptional customer experience across its portfolio of Windows devices," said Peter Han, VP of worldwide OEM at Microsoft.

Halo 5 opening cinematic teases a bunch of stuff you can't do in-game

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 10 hours, 23 mins ago

The release of Halo 5 isn't far away, with Microsoft and 343 Industries releasing the cinematic trailer to Halo 5: Guardians, which you can check out below.

 

 

Hollywood star Nathan Fillion of Firefly fame is featured, with some pretty balls to the wall action. Unfortunately, most of it can't be done within the game, which sucks. Other than that, Halo 5: Guardians is an Xbox One exclusive hitting Microsoft's console on October 27.

The new Nexus 5 will feature 1080p display, 6-core CPU and USB Type-C

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 11 hours, 5 mins ago

The rumors of Google unveiling a new smartphone have been around for a while now, but it looks like the Mountain View-based search giant will be announcing a new Nexus smartphone on September 29.

 

new-nexus-5-feature-1080p-display-6-core-cpu-usb-type_07

 

But now we have more specifications on the new Nexus handsets, which will reportedly come in a 5.2-inch and 5.7-inch device. The 5.2-inch Nexus will be constructed by LG while Huawei will handle the 5.7-inch variant. The 5.2-inch Nexus will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 processor, with 3GB of RAM. The 5.2-inch display will feature the 1080p resolution, it will arrive in 16GB and 32GB variants, pack a 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera, a USB Type-C port, 2700mAh battery, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

 

This will be quite the upgrade over the original Nexus 5, which packed a 1080p display but small 2300mAh battery. We should expect more details on both new Nexus smartphones on September 29.

The Skylake CPUs are available in the GT72 Dominator Pro G, GS70 Stealth and GS60 Ghost, GE62 and GE72 Apache Pro gaming laptops. Gaming laptops from MSI with Intel 6th Generation Core i7 processors will launch beginning on September 27, though pricing hasn't been released by the company.

 

"Intel's newest processors deliver extraordinary performance and energy savings, resulting in longer gaming sessions on the go," said Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America. "MSI understands the importance of immersive-ness and we've equipped our gaming laptops with features that perfectly complement the new processor to deliver the ultimate gaming experience."

EVGA will soon be entering the enthusiast gaming notebook market

By: Steven Bassiri | More News: Laptops | Posted: 13 hours, 9 mins ago

It might be the introduction of high performance unlocked K-series mobile processors from Intel, but EVGA has decided to enter the gaming notebook market. At IDF, Intel hinted that EVGA would be bringing a gaming notebook to market featuring a new Skylake mobile CPU.

 

evga-hints-enter-enthusiast-gaming-notebook-market_01

 

EVGA is traditionally known for their aftermarket video cards and motherboards, and they have a large following of enthusiasts and gamers who want the best hardware in their computers. I contacted our EVGA representative to get more information or even confirmation. According to EVGA marketing, "[EVGA] are working on a new 17-inch thin gaming notebook with very high-end hardware. Plan to launch late this year/early next. 100% EVGA design from the ground up".

 

EVGA is known for their NVIDIA-based GPUs and Intel-based motherboards, so we should expect an Intel CPU and the possibility of a discrete mobile GPU from NVIDIA. We could even go as far as to expect Intel's first K-SKU mobile CPU in EVGA's gaming notebook, but at this time there is no solid confirmation of what hardware will be used in their gaming notebook.
