Abyss Watch is cool and minimalist

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: Jul 27, 2010 9:06 pm

I am not a watch wearer, like many people today I prefer to just use my iPhone to tell time rather than a watch. If you like strange watches we have one for you today from Chinavision.

The watch is called the Abyss and has blue LED lights on the face to tell time. Those lights only glow when the user touches the screen and the watch has no hands. When the watch is not lit, the face is a blank black dial.

HyperMac Stand extends battery life for iPad

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Jul 27, 2010 8:00 pm

I have said it before, it's uncomfortable to watch video or use the iPad for an extended period with it laying flat on a desk or table. I want a stand to lift the screen up for more comfort.

Apple unveils Magic Trackpad

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Peripherals | Posted: Jul 27, 2010 4:06 pm

You know, I loathe me some trackpad. I mean I would rather schlep around mouse when I am working out of the office than have to use a trackpad. I'm not convinced I would like the slick looking Apple Magic Trackpad any better.

The device was unveiled today after some rumors that it was coming landing this week. The thing is an aluminum sheet covered in glass that supports multitouch like the trackpad you get on the MacBook, only for desktop users.

StarCraft II lacks anti-aliasing support

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jul 27, 2010 3:16 pm

Fans of the StarCraft franchise are undoubtedly excited today with the StarCraft II game hitting the market. The downside is that the game lacks support for a basic graphics element to prevent jaggies in the game.

Blizzard chose to not implement anti-aliasing in the game for some reason. The lack of AA in the game gets a work around via NVIDIA drivers for those using NV hardware.

Poll Results - What type of gamer are you?

By: Cameron Wilmot | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jul 27, 2010 1:16 pm

Around 2,800 people voted on our previous poll and we asked you what type of gamer are you?

 

TweakTown image news/1/6/16179_01.png

 

Who was it that said PC gaming was dead or dying? A massive 83% of TweakTown readers claim to be PC gamers, while only 8% voted to be console gaming. You would probably expect that from a website that has a strong and rich history in delivering mostly PC based tech content, but it's still an impressive number.

 

Only 1% said that they are portable console gamers and phone or mobile device gaming scored a very lowly 0% of the votes. 2% said they play old school games such as cards and 5% said they don't have time to play games.

 

For the actual numbers, go here. In our latest poll, we want to know who makes the best quality computer speakers? Let us know! Please go here to vote!

Bugger the plans, you want an iPhone 4 outright? Here's the deal

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Jul 27, 2010 11:58 am

With preparation for the launch of Apple's new iphone 4 down under being the talk of the town today, more pricing info has popped up online which gives those of you interested to buy outright something to smile over.

 

Many were anticipating typically inflated pricing for the new Apple smart phone tipping well beyond the 1K AUD mark for the 32GB model, but it turns out Apple has decided to slash $50 off this model and keeps it down to three figures at $999 AUD.

 

This price isn't reflected on Apple's site as yet, but multiple reputable sources have confirmed the $999 figure is rock solid. If it's the 8GB iPhone 3GS you're wanting outright, Apple's store does have this listed now for $719 AUD; bit hefty when for less than a few hundred more you can have the new-gen top dog iPhone 4 with significantly more storage space.

 

Word is circulating of the 16GB version (in black) being $859 outright. Again, when you're this close to the price of the 32GB model, if it's outright you want it makes more sense to try and reach up for the one on the pedestal.
