razer-naga-2014For the most part, the Razer Naga is the most successful gaming mouse ever created. Naturally, Razer is making another effort to squeeze more out of the design, with a refreshed Naga MMO gaming mouse that features a better mechanical 12-button setup on the side, a new tilting scroll wheel, in-game customization, and an option for left-handed or right-handed gamers.

And in the end, it all comes down to $80.

PlayStation 4 Will Support 2,000 Friends Come Launch Date

The PS4Two thousand is double the number of friends you can have on a PS4 than an Xbox One, Sony says.

Without need of a paywall via a PlayStation plus subscriptions, users will be able to contain on the PS4 a Party Chat system, along with friends lists that support up to 2,000 users — no more, no less. Certain apps will be available without a paid PS Plus subscription as well, like Netflix and free-to-play games, which rounds out the PS4 to become a nice offline games console, in theory.

My question is, if you have that many friends, why aren’t you hanging out with them, in you know, real-life?

Audio Technica WS99 Headphones Review: They Sound, Look, But Don’t Feel Great

WS99Audio Technica is a pretty reputable consumer sound manufacturer, founded in Japan sometime in 1962, and as part of their new line of headphones (which is their main business), the WS99 is probably the best of bunch. It features large 53mm drivers, chambers that are designed to lock-in bass, and mostly neutral in the high, low, and mid-range frequencies. They’re jet black, with shiny plastic covering the sides, with leatherette cushioning for the ears and top of the head to keep things aesthetically pleasing. But is it any good considering the price; let’s find out, shall we?

Uni-Ball Vision Elite Series BLX Pen Review: Get Litt Up

DSC00960As a few of you may or may not know, I’m a die-hard fan of Suits on USA. The eccentric cast of handsome and beautiful characters, plus the epic cases and dialogue makes the show the hit that it is. Having just entered its third season on USA, Louis Litt, the sworn enemy of Harvey Specter, our hotsoht lawyer in the drama, has a fascination with two things: uni-ball pens and raspberry bars.

Naturally, I was interested in what a Uni-Ball pen was, and why it made for such a hilarious scene in the show. An email later, and Uni-Ball Vision Pro Elite and BLX pens were in my hands. Let’s see why Louis Litt likes them so much.

Google Nexus 7 (2013) Review: Reborn With Excellence

It’s been only a few months after the launch of the iPad mini and not even a year since the launch of the last Nexus 7.  But Google had four great reasons to bring the press out to San Francisco to talk about the new Nexus 7. First off, the new high resolution screen, addition of a back-facing camera, a new version of Android, and a thinner, lighter body.

And that’s all it took for the new Nexus 7 to capture my attention.
