ASUS ZenFone 2 Coming

There are a lot of on-contract options for cellular phones that end up being heavily subsidized in order to make them affordable. Still, I have a hard time throwing down $400+ with a 2-year contract for a wireless device. For that kind of money, I want something with no contract, expandable storage that is not locked down to a specific network. I guess what I really want is one of these new ZenFone 2 devices from ASUS. This beast packs an Intel Quad Core CPU, 2GB of RAM and a couple of decent front and rear cameras. Time will tell if it holds up, but it looks pretty solid.

Pricing on the USA version of the ASUS ZenFone 2 is revealed in an set of unlocked editions coming exclusively to Amazon. No carriers have been named thus far - the phone (large version and small version) will be coming to Amazon unlocked, available for users to add a SIM card to depending on the carrier they're already signed up with. Or want to switch to. The larger phone will compete with the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note series with a display size of 5.5-inches.

Tesoro Lobera Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

We have just posted up our review of the Tesoro Lobera Spectrum Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard has more features than most other keyboards on the market and backs it up with build quality, easy setup and a fantastic presentation that only gets better once you set up your custom macros and lighting options. If you're in the market for something with as much performance as class, check out our review.

Overall, I like this keyboard very much as it brings out the "tough" looks as well as the creative side of this girl gamer. The heavy feel, rough texture, metal and industrial design lets people know that you have a quality product on your bench. At $159, this is not a budget keyboard, but the features and quality are not budget as well. It is a high quality product.

Pirated Windows 10 Reminds You

If you have a pirated copy of Windows 7 or 8 and you decide to take Microsoft up on the free offer to upgrade to Windows 10, you'll be gently reminded with a watermark on your desktop that this is not a genuine copy. Of course you'll be able to install the OS and receive updates (at first), but nothing is completely free. There still is no word as to what it will cost users that have to shell out money for a license, but hopefully Microsoft takes the Apple approach and makes it affordable for everyone.

The announcement comes after Myerson confused the tech world a few months ago by declaring that pirated versions of Windows could partake in Microsoft's free upgrade offer for Windows 10. It turns out that's not exactly true: The company later said that non-genuine installations would have to go through the Windows Store to upgrade to Windows 10, which was a strong hint that it would make pirates pay.

10 Countries With Really Fast Internet

If you live in a remote corner of the world and are cursing us for having too many pictures on our site because you have really slow internet, there is now a list of countries with really great internet and we've found the top 10 to share with you. This list has been put together by Akamai Technologies - a cloud services provider, so they should know what they are talking about.

With a few clicks on a keyboard and a swipe of the mouse, we have access to an unprecedented amount of information the likes of which humanity has never seen before. But if you have a slow internet connection speed, then waiting for that page to load, that video to buffer, or that file to download can feel like an eternity.

Smartphone Action

Samsung has dropped a few hints of a new Marvel themed device and we've seen a few images of it floating around the web. That's right, they have an Ironman themed Galaxy S6 and it looks incredible! Of course, if you want it to stay looking great, you'll put a cheap plastic case on it and it will just look like every other phone. Still, super cool!

Avengers Phones

 

In other phone news, the Elephone P6000 has been unboxed over at Neowin as well and this device seems to leave them wanting. Of course, you have to remember that this is a very cost-effective phone, and Elephones upcoming P7000 looks to improve dramatically on all accounts. Still, if you want a really solid device, check it out.

The Elephone P6000 is one of the phones that have pushed for the redefinition of the words "entry level." Packing 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core SoC and a GPU that can play Asphalt 8 at the highest setting without issues, it feels much closer to a midrange phone but is priced at barely $130.

Apple Buys Precision GPS Tracking

Apple is all about saying "no" to Google Maps and in order to help you not run your vehicle off the road and into a canyon, they have recently purchased Coherent Navigation. This company is all about "High Integrity GPS" that is very precise and while Apple is not saying exactly what they are going to do with this purchase, I think it has less to do with their phones and more to do with a self-driving electric car.

It is unclear exactly what the Coherent Navigation team is working on at Apple and whether there was a specific technology Apple was interested in or if it simply wanted to apply the expertise of Coherent's employees to its own projects. Lego simply notes that he is now a member of Apple's Maps team, while Ledvina and Bencze are working in similarly location engineering roles.

The Best Cheap Smartphone

There are tons of options when it comes to smartphones, many of which cost $500+ dollars. Now there are quite a few sub-$200 options and most of them are very great choices. The Verge has taken 10 smartphones that will cost you less than $200 and picks their favorite. 

The smartphone with the best bang for your buck right now is Motorola’s Moto G. It has everything that matters for a good smartphone: great display, fast performance, easy software, and an attractive design. It’s sold unlocked, so you can use it with AT&T, T-Mobile, or a host of prepaid services, and you can use it with a local SIM card when you travel abroad to save on roaming fees.
