The Ferrari 488 GTB Is An “Entry-Level” Supercar, Blows Minds

1-ferrari-anteriore-1280x0_2SCHR7Ah, yes. A new Ferrari, named the 488 GTB.

It’s environmentally more sound than its predecessor, the 458 Italia, with 260g/km CO2 emissions. It’s also faster, reaching 0-62mph in 3 seconds flat, and 124mph in just 8.3 seconds total. It’s insane, is the world you’re looking for. Engine-wise, this is possible via a 661bhp 3.9-liter V8 engine with 561lb ft of torque. Oh, and twin turbochargers, just for a “pinch” more of power.

It’s a beautiful sight, with styling from the “XX” division of Ferrari’s somehow-more-insanely-fast track division. More details on the 48 GTB will be released at the Geneva Motor Show, next month.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Review: Just Peer Over It

WP_20150128_14_48_07_ProSamsung has been feeling the heat lately. Not that the Galaxy brand is any less prominent, but competition is getting more and more composed. The operating systems used stay mostly the same, but the materials and capabilities of competing devices continue to change.

Seemingly, in an attempt to create something out of the ordinary, Samsung Mobile released the Note Edge — a version of the fantastic Note 4 tablet, but with an edged right side of screen. Hopefully as a device, it’s well-rounded (awful pun intended).

Raspberry Pi 2 Will Come With Windows 10, For $35

pi_board_pageIt’s still happening: Raspberry Pi mania. In this case, the newest version of the computer that can fit in the palm of your hand just got upgraded. A new Broadcom BCM2836 900MHz quad-core system-on-chip with 1GB of RAM, with performance “at least 6x” that of the B+ predecessor — but with Windows 10.

That’s right. The new Pi comes with Windows 10. Specifically, free to the Maker community through its Windows Developer Program for IoT, which will allow the Pi 2 to run specific universal apps, since it’s an ARM-based computer (like Windows RT, remember that?).

While Windows 10 won’t be out till later this year, the Pi 2 is out right now — and that’s awesome.

LG Reports Q4 2014 Results: $475M In Profits, Ships 59.1M Smartphones

LG G Flex ReviewedTake note that LG is profiting greatly through its multiple divisions, mobile especially. A $475 million profit for 2014 after shipping a total of 59.1 million smartphones, a 24 percent increase on its previous year; LG is doing better than ever.

Looking at those results in detail: the $474.81 million net profit is a 125% improvement on last year’s results. Its mobile business which helped pull in year-long revenue of $55.91 billion, but home entertainment took a dip with the $189.41 million in Q4 2014, due to costs of closing its plasma TV unit.

In short, the company said, “LG will concentrate on improving its brand power, operating more efficiently, and focusing on selective key markets,” which sounds like a very reasonable plan.

Microsoft Rebrands Acompli As Outlook, Publishes iOS And Android Apps

Outlook-for-iOS-and-AndroidMicrosoft is flexing its app muscles once again, with the revival of Outlook on mobile devices. Back in December, Microsoft purchased mobile email app Acompli, and as of today has rebranded it as Outlook, with an identical appearance available on the Play Store and App Store. Though, the look of the app won’t stay the same for long; MSFT will update it weekly, apparently.

But, Microsoft isn’t being greedy here. The new Outlooks app supports support Office 365, Exchange,, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, and other major email providers, while remaining free.

It’s an interesting turn of events, and given that many tech pundits find the app to be one of the best mobile email experiences, then it’s worth trying.

Sony And Spotify Just Teamed Up For PlayStation Music

15763979424_11d12bbb1b_zThat’s right. Spotify is coming to PlayStation in the form of a new app destination called “PlayStation Music”. There, Spotify will be the exclusive provider of all your music streaming needs while on your console, be it PS4 or PS3, with Xperia devices to follow soon after. Existing Spotify users can simply log-in and get all of their existing playlists synced.

This comes with the closure of Sony’s own Music Unlimited service in 19 countries, whereas the PlayStation Music service will launch in 41 countries, a few of those being U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil.

Seems to be an excellent move on Sony’s part; offering yet another experience unavailable on the Xbox One.

Brevity Review: BiC Triumph Roller Pen


There’s no harm done in reviewing another pen from French office supply company BiC. You may know them for their lighters, others for their inexpensive pens. But in the middle of that spectrum of utility, exist a few products that BiC sells that are worthy of going up against the king of office and school pens: Uni-Balls.
