Google's New Switch Campaign

Google is now trying to help you (and by you, I mean Apple users) get ready to switch from your Apple iPhone to an new Lollipop-enabled phone. They are doing this by helping you push your files, music, media and videos to their cloud in anticipation that it will be easier for you once you go pick up that new Android 5.0 device. It's a good guide for anyone to make sure their stuff is backed up - even if you already are on the Google team.

Transfer photos stored on your iPhone or iPad
Google+ Photos is a great way to have all your pics - past and future - in one place, with unlimited private storage* and accessible from any internet connected device. There are always lots more choices on Google Play to find the photo app that works perfectly for you.

Another Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo isn't going all that well when it comes to Wii U sales, and their 3DS is a little flat when compared to their original NDS. That being said, it is still churning along and trying to compete against smartphones. We've seen quite a few revisions of the NDS and 3DS over the past few years and right now in Japan their is a new 3DS that's not quite XL, but not quite original. It looks to be all winner though.

The New Nintendo 3DS — out now in Japan, next month in Australia and New Zealand, and next year elsewhere — has a faster processor than its predecessor. It has customizable faceplates. It does a neat trick that makes the 3D effect much better. It even has a second analog stick (of sorts).

Microsoft to Launch Smartwatch Soon?

Microsoft has decided that they want to join the Smartwatch fray. This is not a surprise as the margin on these devices right now is very high. Unfortunately, they are late to the party - again. That being said, I think Microsoft is one of the companies that could actually get wearables right. They do make very good hardware, it just doesn't catch on and compete when they are usually the last horse out of the gate.

A peer back into the annals of history shows that once upon a time in 2003, Microsoft hatched plans to release a timepiece which could receive information about weather, traffic and goodness knows what else for the princely sum of $10. How did this technological marvel work? Using FM radio, which even in the early noughties was about as high-tech as the spinning jenny.

Amazon Kindle Voyage

Amazon has pretty much pioneered the eBook reader with the Kindle, and even though tablets are all the rage, the Kindle is still setting the pace and isn't slowing down. Every year or so, they refresh their eBook reader line and the latest installment on the high-end is the Voyager. This takes eBook reading to a whole new level with some great specs (for an eBook reader). The truth is, I'd take one.

Actually, with the Voyage, you may never move your thumb at all. A pair of gray lines and dots on either side of the front bezel can be touched lightly to advance the page or go back - "PagePress," in Amazon parlance. Haptic feedback gives your hand a little buzz as affirmation that the command has registered.

Halo Collection Arrives with a 20GB Patch

If you've been eagerly waiting for the 343 Industries Halo Collection for your Xbox One, you may have heard that there is a 20GB Day 1 Patch. That sucks. Plain and simple. This patch was known before the disks were shipped so there is a bit of an outcry as to why gamers have to deal with this kind of issue. The reality is that because of this patch, the game collection fits on a single Blu-Ray disc. Without the patch, you'd need a couple of discs. If you are super chapped, you can at least pre-load the patch before the game arrives.

While we won't know for sure what's included in the update until it arrives, O'Connor's claim that the game was simply too large to fit on one disc has merit. As we've explained, Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes remastered versions of the first four Halo games, as well as over 100 multiplayer maps.

One Plus One Gets Pre-Order - For an Hour

If you've been tired of all the hoops to jump through in order to get a One Plus One, things are looking up! You will be able to pre-order this device on October 27, 2014 - for one hour. That's right. One hour. Obviously they are either trying to stimulate demand by lack of supply or they simply can't make them fast enough with their current production. Either way, if you want to get in on the goodness, check out the link below.

The One Plus One has a 5.5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 13MP camera, 3100mAh battery, and is available with 16GB or 64GB of storage. Unfortunately, each size does not come with a color option and instead the 16GB version will come in Silk White and the 64GB will come in Sandstone Black. The 16GB model will retail for $299, while the 64GB model is a mere $349 USD.

Intel Bay Trail-based USB Stick Runs WIndows 8

Intel has dabbled in the hardware business over the years and their latest device is a glorified USB stick that runs full-on Windows 8.1. This device is really the ultimate streaming stick and when it is priced at $100, it will sell like hotcakes at a cowboy festival. It won't be the fastest thing on the market, but it should be enough for an eMachine or streaming machine.

The USB stick is just under 100mm long and is packed with a quad core Intel Atom CPU running at 1.7 GHz. Other specifications of the device include 1 GB DDR3 RAM, 2 MicroUSB ports, 1 HDMI port, 16 GB and 32 GB storage options, a memory card slot, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
