Thin and Light Small Tablets

If you are looking for a thin and light small tablet, there are a few more choices these days than just an iPad Mini. The original Nexus 7 was a pretty thick beast, but the new Nexus 7 makes this list as does the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 the aforementioned iPad Mini as well as the new Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. Which one of these is the thinnest and the lightest? Take a look.

The 8.4-inch tablet stuns with its 2,560x1,600-pixel-resolution screen, and it currently holds the title of tablet with the highest pixels-per-inch at 359ppi. It performs smoothly, comes with a ton of preloaded Samsung software (or bloatware, if you're a hater), and if you fancy a high-end small tablet that runs Android, this is your best choice.

Xbox One Flies Off Shelf at $399

If you have been waiting for the price to drop on the Xbox One in order to pick it up, it did drop to $449 at a few select retailers this past week. Yesterday, Amazon posted it at $399 for a while and it flew off the shelves about as fast as people could hit the "order" button. It didn't last too long though as this was apparently an error - but it proves the point that if Microsoft could drop the price to $399, they might be able to catch Sony's PS4.

The Xbox One Standard Edition (with the Forza Motorsport 5 digital code) is currently listed for $450, but adding the discount code XIAMAZON -- first seen last week as retailers cut prices on the Titanfall bundle to $450 -- takes an additional $50 off of the price. Of course, this means you don't get the console's most anticipated game as a part of the deal, but at this price we doubt many will complain.

Assassin's Creed Unity Footage

Ubisoft has just released a bit of footage from Assassin's Creed Unity and this game looks like another solid title in the series. There is not much footage, but it does set the tone for the game. (Spoiler: There may involve virtual killing).


Amazon Smartphone Specs Leak

In this day and age, it's pretty hard to launch a total surprise product and the rumors have been floating around for a while now about the possibility of Amazon releasing a Smartphone. According to sources, the phone could have a front and rear camera as well as up to four other camera sensors for gesture controls - making it one of the most hands-off devices we've seen yet. Time will tell, but if this does launch, it should be late in 2Q of 2014.

In terms of specs, Kuo says the Amazon phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a 4.7-inch display with a pixel density of between 300 and 320 ppi, a plastic housing, a 13-megapixel main camera supplied by Sony, secondary cameras supplied by Primax, and a battery sized between 2,000 and 2,400 mAh.

Bear Simulator Coming

There are a few "Sim" games that are awesome. Jason votes for SimCity - now that offline mode works and I know that Tigger enjoys the "Sims". I have been known to play a bit of Big Game Hunter or something like that in the past, but if "Bear Simulator" launches, I just may have to order this epic game. It's just so... wow.


Apple to Launch iTunes on Android?

It may not be rocket science, but if you're Apple and you're not selling as many devices anymore - and losing marketshare to Android, maybe you should really start thinking about pushing iTunes to Android. It seems that this idea is gaining a bit of traction in the industry and we may see this come to fruition later this year. Time will tell, but with the Google Music service not available in Canada, I'd consider spending money on iTunes for my Android.

But it's the talks around on-demand subscription and the iTunes App for Android that will most intrigue label heads and the wider market. Apple founder Steve Jobs was widely known to have argued that fans would never subscribe for music. Moreover, up until now, iTunes has been committed to keeping the iTunes ecosystem closed off.

ROCCAT Siru Gaming Mouse Pad Review

We have just posted up our review of the ROCCAT Siru Gaming Mouse Pad. This pad is one of the thinnest mats we've ever seen and if you want something that won't take a lot of space in your bag, or raise your hand uncomfortably high off your desk, you should really take a look at see how a razer-thin pad really works. It's more than just a pretty face - and it is pretty. Please take a look at our review for all the details.



I knew I was going to need a new one soon as my old fabric one was breaking down where I had most used it. So much dirt and dust was in and around it that as every week went by, it just became more and more difficult to use. As soon as I opened the package for the Siru and was able to look and feel what I was going to be using, I knew this pad was going to be my pad for a long time.

Now that's a severance package!

In January, Time Warner Cable appointed Robert D. Marcus was appointed as their new CEO. 6 weeks later Time Warner Cable was sold to Comcast for $45 Billion. As part of Robert D Marcus' contract if Time Warner Cable was sold during his tenure as CEO he would receive a little severance pay, to the tune of $80 Million bucks. For those of you who don't want to do math on a Friday, that works out to around $1 Million bucks a day for severance, not bad for 6 weeks of work. The NY Times has the full story.

Robert D. Marcus became chief executive of Time Warner Cable at the start of the year. Less than two months later, he agreed to sell the company to its largest rival, Comcast, for $45 billion.

For that work, he will receive nearly $80 million if the deal closes, a severance payment that amounts to more than $1 million a day for the six weeks he ran the company before agreeing to sell.
