LG G Flex 2 Review: It’s Great And Curvy, But Needs Software Tweaks

DSC_0172So, on paper the LG GFlex 2 able to flex muscles with the best of the new 2015 smartphones — terrible pun, intended. Everything you’d want is here: Android 5.x Lollipop, a 1080p screen, pleasing aesthetic qualities, a usable camera and the latest Snapdragon processor — it’s a solid smartphone.

But even with all that, there are variables in LG’s curved smartphone formula that still need tweaking; thankfully it’s mostly software.

McLaren 570S: The Newest And “Sportiest” Car From The Brits

mclaren-570s-3The new McLaren 570S is the least expensive model of the British supercar line, and now part of the new “Sports” line. The 570S produces 562 hp from a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine, translating to 0-62 in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 204 mph.

A 7-speed SSG transmission, carbon ceramic brakes, forged alloy wheels, a carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis and aluminum body, new digital instrument cluster, a seven-inch touchscreen with integrated climate control, and optional Bowers & Wilkins audio system.

Pricing has yet to be announced, but the thoughts of auto journalists is that it will be McLaren’s least expensive car in production when it launches.

Microsoft Surface 3: The Little $499 Tablet That Crashed The Party

surface-3The Surface RT was a failed attempt of turning Windows into a strictly tablet OS designed for very few pieces of hardware. Instead, the better idea was to always include tablets as the general Windows fold, and make Windows adjustable and reliable when used as a tablet’s interface.

While the Surface 3 Pro is a testament to high-powered (and expensive) tablet gear, the Surface 3 is the $499 entry to make an excellent mainstream tablet — while also reserving the right to be converted to full Windows laptop.

Specs include a 10.8-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio (1920 x 1,280 resolution), a quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor, Surface 3 features,pen functionality, front and rear-facing 1080p cameras, and integrated kickstand (non-adjustable). 64 GB (2GB RAM) and 128 GB (with 4GB of RAM) models exist, plus a 4G LTE-ready version: Surface 3 (4G LTE), T-Mobile of which has already published a release supporting the new tablet.

Also: the Surface 3 Type Cover and Pen work just as the Pro variants, except they’re smaller and suited towards the Surface 3.

Launch date? May 7th.

lg-g4-save-the-dateOh, yes indeed. If you haven’t been keeping track, it’s time for a new flagship smartphone from LG. That would most likely mean that this new smartphone of interest will be called the G4, but no one is placing bets, yet.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Will Donate His Millions To Charity


In a recent interview with Fortune, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook revealed his entire fortune is going to charity — all $112 million of it, plus the $665 million Cook holds in restricted stock. However, being that Cook is a good uncle, he’ll also be paying for his nephew’s college education.

Being that Cook is an interesting man, he also intends to have a deeper impact with his millions when it comes to doing good, in an initiative similar to Microsoft’s Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Sony’s Major “Yukimura” Update Due Tomorrow For The PS4

ootri-ps4-teardownThe new “Yukimura” update for PlayStation 4 units debuts tomorrow, and brings major changes to the gaming console that’s currently in the lead, sales-wise.

First off, searchable gaming friends from Facebook, context of who else plays the same games that you do, an auto-screenshot of when a Trophy is earned, a verification badge for developers and gaming celebrities (so you know who you’re getting pwned), as well as improvements in accessibility for those who are have impaired visibility or natural dexterity.

But best of all? A new suspend/resume feature, allowing gamers to jump in and out of games and instant-resume (a la Xbox One). Still no word on the Spotify Music app debut, yet.

Sony Xperia Z3 Review: A Great Flagship, But With A Few Parts Left Out

20150324_073741 The current flagship of the unsure Xperia line from Sony — the Z3. A waterproofed yet sleek phone with Gorilla Glass adorning the back and front. It’s both rich in aesthetic and performance but between those lines, exist a few omissions. Still, the Z3 is a prime smartphone, but stiff competition from Samsung, HTC and Apple in the Spring of 2015 are direct threats to its aging hardware.

We’re going straight to the point with this one — onwards!
