They are responding to complaints that the experience is unwieldy to users, and adding subcategories and regional options.

  • Video: LG's AMOLED display is mighty thin – miiiighty thin


    1.7mm. Well! I remember when I was impressed by a third of an inch — a comparably girthy 8mm. These LG TVs use AMOLED technology, which pretty much is the business except for cost and size limitations right now. Keep in mind that the guts of the TV aren’t contained in that thin part — but the fact that it can stand alone means that the CPU and such can all be hidden or… Read More

  • Limited edition PAX Razer Moray+ headphones


    Oh boy, more limited edition PAX gear! These don’t differ in any serious way from the normal Moray+ headphones (which I’ve been neglecting and will review shortly), which is to say they’re a solid pair of in-ears with a built-in mic for on-the-go gaming. Plus, the PAX branding makes them awesomer. We gave away a PAX-edition Death Adder last year, and I get the feeling… Read More

  • Hexagon.cc: Now it's BitTorrent's turn to go ‘social’

    Social this, social that. Looks like everything is being socialized these days—but not the American health care system, zing!—so it only makes sense for someone to try to socialize BitTorrent. It doesn’t hurt when that “someone” is the people behind IsoHunt, who just launched Read More

  • Rejoice Mac-Berry users, Blackberry desktop manager coming to OS X

    It’s finally happened. After months, nay years of waiting, the Blackberry desktop manager is finally coming out for OS X. It’s currently in beta, but it says version 1.0.0, so it is coming — although the current version appears to have leaked. Read More

Both companies are based in Helsinki. The deal gives Dazzboard users access to the MySites cloud where they can store and share an unlimited amount of data. Users… Read More

  • Brighten up your day (or salad) with a homemade 1UP Power Up!

    Generally speaking, the preferred method for procuring a 1UP Power Up is collecting 100 golden Mario coins to smash your fist into a giant question mark block. BUT, if you’re really in need of a quick (and less painful) pick-me-up, grab yourself a shiny new radish, a paring knife, and maybe a Sharpie (for the eyes?!). Follow the visual instructions above and…voila! 1UP! Power Up! Read More
