Reaching out to us via email, OnePlus representative Eric Zarshenas aimed to clarify some points in a recent article published by TweakTown. The piece in question showcased a possible blame shift towards OnePlus Suppliers, seemingly blaming them for the faulty charger situation.




"Readers may think we are blaming our suppliers, when we are not," explained Zarshenas, "The line you reference is part of a general note in our blog for people's own knowledge about power safety and even provide useful information about certifications. We are not blaming our suppliers or anybody."


This correspondence comes after a Google engineer issued a warning to the public, claiming that the OnePlus 2 bundled USB Type-C cable and adapter may be harmful to some devices.

Call of Duty rumored to see a third-person Modern Warfare release

By: Chris Smith | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 7 mins ago

With Call of Duty has becoming a near-Christmas release staple for quite a few years now, Glen Schofield from Sledgehammer Games has taken to Twitter in order to express his excitement towards the next title release, exclaiming: "Can't talk about the game but we listened and I am so f*%#=ing stoked about this one."




An article published by Movie Pilot speculated on this new title, mentioning that Sledgehammer were once working on its own Call of Duty type title. This game was played in third-person and something similar to Uncharted in its game style, instead of the run-and-gun first-person Call of Duty that many players either love or hate.


The public feedback also totes towards a Modern Warfare title release, with the general population seemingly wanting this series to continue on due to various points based around story line, movement, weapon handling and game feel. If the stars align and this third-person possibility from Sledgehammer Games and the Modern Warfare series combine, we will certainly be presented with an interesting title come 2016.

Apple expected to launch even thinner MacBook Air models next year

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: 9 hours, 17 mins ago

According to the latest rumors, Apple is preparing two new MacBook Air models for 2016, something we should see unveiled at their WWDC 2016 event in June. The actual launch of the new MBA models will be in Q3 2016.




The thinner MacBook Air models would arrive in 13- and 15-inch, but the 11-inch model is still up in the air. The new models will be thinner thanks to "fully redesigned" internal components, with Apple working with its suppliers to develop these new, thinner components. Apple expanded its MacBook Air range earlier this year with the new MacBook, which featured a 12-inch Retina display and used Intel's new ultra low voltage chips for its fanless design.

Less of a sequel to 2013's Superman reboot 'Man of Steel', 'Batman v Superman' will serve as a trojan horse for DC Comics and Warner Bros to introduce the superhero collectice 'The Justice League', which will be in direct ocompetiton with Marvel's Cinematic Universe, and particularly 'The Avengers'.


'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' will be released in 3D and 2D cinemas as well as IMAX screens on March 25th 2016 worldwide.

USB-C connector updated with Intel's Thunderbolt 3 transfer protocol

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Connectivity & Communications | Posted: 12 hours, 12 mins ago

It looks like USB Type-C just took a step in the right direction, with the reversible USB port being upgraded to include the Thunderbolt 3 transfer protocol from Intel.




The latest USB Type-C based devices can be found in the new Dell XPS 12, XPS 13 and XPS 15 systems that were announced in October being the first to feature the new port. Intel has called Thunderbolt 3 "port nirvana" thanks to it being capable of transferring data at 40Gbps, twice as fast as Thunderbolt 2, and four times as fast as USB 3.1 which has a ceiling of 10Gbps.


Thunderbolt 3 is quick enough to transfer a 4K video in less than 30 seconds while the port itself can drive two 4K displays at 60Hz, and it can quick charge notebooks at up to 100W. Getting Thunderbolt 3 into the USB Type-C protocol is a big win for Intel, as Thunderbolt connectivity has never reached the high hopes of Intel, but direct integration with USB Type-C is something exciting for Thunderbolt and especially Intel.

Just Cause 3 experiencing performance issues on the PS4

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 14 hours, 7 mins ago

According to a report from TheGamesCabin, the PS4 version of Just Cause 3 is seeing performance-related issues and extending loading times. While Just Cause 3 isn't officially out until tomorrow, some reviewers have received their version of the game early.




Even though the game is said to be huge fun, "it rarely manages to maintain a steady refresh rate" on the PS4 at its targeted 1080p resolution and 30FPS. Whenever there is an explosion on-screen, which there are a lot in Just Cause 3, the frame rate drops and the game stutters during driving sequences. Even running around the island in Just Cause 3 and rotating the camera sees the game experiencing frame rate issues on the PS4.


There's a day one patch coming which should see the performance helped out, so let's hope by the time gamers get their hands on Just Cause 3 that the performance issues on the PS4 are fixed.
