Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Hands-On

Mobile World Congress is ramping up and Samsung has finally completely unveiled their Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices. From the leaks that we saw prior to their official unveiling, we knew pretty much everything about the hardware, but now people are able to get some hands-on to see and feel how they look and work. Things aren't all that groundbreaking on the S6, but the S6 Edge looks pretty slick.

Curiously, while the S6 Edge goes one better than Samsung's own Galaxy Note Edge, released last year - which has a display that curves around just one edge of the device - the display 'overhangs' on the new device appear to be considerably less functional than on the Note Edge.

MicroSD hits 200GB

SanDisk is pushing small form factor storage farther than I thought possible. When MicroSD cards hit 8GB it was ground-breaking and now they are making some pretty impressive 200GB cards. These should be available right away and if you have compatibility for SDXC cards, you'll be good to go... 200GB - in something the size of a fingernail. Wow.

“We continue to push technology boundaries to deliver record-breaking solutions that transform the way consumers use their mobile devices,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk. “By focusing on achieving new capacity and speed milestones, we are able to deliver trusted mobile memory solutions that give consumers the freedom to never stop capturing, saving, or sharing – with the benefit of fast speeds to transfer it all quickly.”

Mobile World Congress 2015

Smartphone fans wait is almost over as Mobile World Congress is starting Sunday and it looks like this year is going to be full of announcements of new products. Most of the big guys will be showing off some thing new and The Verge has come up with a list of things we will hopefully see next week.

Every year, tens of thousands of reporters, analysts, and suited-up businesspeople descend upon Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress trade show. Mobile World Congress, or MWC if you're in the know, is the largest trade show for mobile technology: phones, networks, hotspots, infrastructure, and more phones.

Lenovo's Sorry

Lenovo is still doing damage control after their 'Superfish' problem. Lenovo has now announced that anyone who was affected will get a free 6 month subscription to McAfee LiveSafe which I guess is better than nothing. Lenovo has also said that they will be 'significantly reducing' the amount of preloaded software that will be coming on your next new PC, which just might be the best news. Reuters has the story.

Lenovo Group Ltd said it will offer users of its PCs pre-installed with "Superfish" software a free 6-month subscription to McAfee LiveSafe service to remove security concerns.

The Chinese computer and smartphone maker's announcement comes a week after the U.S. government advised Lenovo customers to remove "Superfish", saying it makes users vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Lenovo also issued a press release promising a cleaner, safer PC in the future.

Linksys E8350 2400AC Wireless Gigabit Router

We have just posted up our review of the Linksys E8350 802.11ac 2400AC Gigabit Router. Not only is this router crazy fast on the wireless speeds, it also performs like a champ over a wired connection. Linksys has gotten back to basics on the sofware side of things and they give you a clean interface that gets the job done - quickly. It is currently the king of our wireless tests so make sure to check our review for all the details.

E8350

 

Overall the performance and package of the E8350 is fantastic. Linksys has once again put their best foot forward in order to try and regain the affection of enthusiasts worldwide. The wired performance is great and it comes close to the fastest we've seen. In terms of wireless connectivity the results between this router and my laptop are even better than the previous WRT1900AC. There really isn't much to complain about when it comes to performance...

How to remove Bloatware

The recent Superfish 'scandal' from Lenovo has brought even more light to all the software that comes pre-installed on your brand new computer that pretty much only slows you down. All of this software is removable and if you spend the time doing it you might just be surprised at the performance that you can gain. PCWorld has a guide on how to do this and shows just how much performance you might be able to gain.

Bloatware, crapware, shovelware: No matter what you call it, the junk that PC makers dump onto new PCs is nothing short of a mess. The situation was thrust into the spotlight last week when it was revealed that several Lenovo PCs were preloaded with “Superfish” adware that actively left users vulnerable to attack. The software compromised secure HTTPS web connections in a quest to inject ads on the sites you visit... and make Lenovo a few nickels.

Rock Band vs. Guitar Hero

Looks like we are going to be getting new versions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band just in time for the holiday season in 2015. It's been almost 5 years since the last version of both Guitar Hero and Rock Band were released as the whole "fad" seemed to die off but I guess Harmonix (Rock Band) and Activision (Guitar Hero) think that enough time has passed and are hoping to capitalize once again on the popularity of their games. I guess we will see how they are received and if people are once again lining up for hours to get their very own plastic guitar. Wired has the story.

Two reports say Harmonix is gearing up to re-introduce its Rock Band series this year, and longtime rival Activision is set to revive its dormant Guitar Hero brand as well. The last time anyone released a full-fledged, plastic-instruments-based title in either series was in 2010, when Rock Band 3 and Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rockhit retail. If these reports are true, it raises the question: What exactly has changed since the band-game market flamed out five years ago?

On Tuesday, Kotaku UK reported that Activision is planning a new Guitar Hero with a more “realistic” graphic style, to be unveiled at the E3 Expo in June and released this holiday season. Kotaku said that new guitar controllers were in development, but did not mention if the new game, as with previous installments, would feature other instruments like vocals or drums.

New Color Pebble Smartwatch Rocks Kickstarter

Pebble did very well on their inital smartwatch and while version 1.0 was pretty clunky, the Pebble Steel looks pretty awesome. Pebble is back at it again and is bringing color e-ink to the table in their new Pebble Time. The project is on Kickstarter and raised over $1 Million in less than an hour. That's amazing and really shows that people really, really want long battery life in a smartwatch. Even though this unit is color, we're still talking 7 days between charging. That's why it's currently well over 1000% funded.
