AZZA XT 1W Full Tower Review

We have just posted up our review of the AZZAtek XT 1W full-tower chassis. This is a gaming case that breaks from the traditional look and gives you a fresh, tool-less experience. If it's as solid as it is good looking, it would be a hands down winner. Find out if this is your next case, or if you'll be better off with your gear in another box. Our review has all the details.

This is a big case.  No matter what components you have chosen, they will fit inside, with lots of room for cable or hose management. When you look at it, you can easily picture this case as the stand out piece in a pristine work space. With all the dark colored cases on the market, it is refreshing to see a white and blue theme from the XT 1.

New Google "Inbox" to Replace Traditional GMail

There are a lot of people that use GMail - either directly or hosted by Google - as their primary email client and do everything with webmail outside of a dedicated mail client such as Outlook. The problem with this web-only method is that filters and sorting is sometimes difficult and if you get hundreds of emails a day, it can be easy to miss something important. The new email experience by Google is called "Inbox" and while it is invite only at the moment, it does show some promise - amid the initial confusion. Check it out and I'm sure you'll understand why.

If you're anything like us, Google's Gmail has an iron grip on your life. Google's looking to create a whole new iron grip with a new app from its Gmail team, and it's called "Inbox." What is it? That's a good question -- Google's made a demo slash advertisement video that we've dropped below. As far as we can tell, Inbox is a combination of Google Now and your Gmail inbox -- a "smart" inbox, if you will.

New Windows 10 Animations (and how to disable them)

The latest build of Windows 10 has rolled out quite successfully to users and is now at build 9860. These add some interesting new glamor to opening a window or launching a program. While I don't really judge an OS by it's "popping" windows, this has met with mixed reviews. You can check out the new animations below... then follow the link to see how to remove them if you don't like them.

Halo Nightfall Trailer

Movies based off of video games can be really, really horrible. Some movies based off of video games are decent. If this trailer actually is a fair representation of the upcoming Halo Nightfall movie, this could be a homerun. It looks fantastic.

 

iPad Air 2 "Smokes" - In a Good Way

If you're looking for a tablet that has a ton of power and should actually be the device that will last you a few years, the new Apple iPad Air 2 looks pretty impressive. According to sources, this tablet smokes the competition - even the new NVIDIA Tegra K1 stuff. Of course, manufacturers can pair up any of these Android tablets with better GPUs, but for the most part - Wow. Apple may have nailed it this time.

According to figures published by GSMArena, Nexus 9 turns in scores (added below) that are much better in single core but only slightly better in multiple core benchmarks than the original Tegra K1 Shield Tablet. Its single core performance is similar to iPad Air 2 but its multiple core CPU performance is beat by the A8X iPad Air 2 by 34.8 percent.

Blizzcon: Nothing Else Matters

Blizzard is the company that really figured out monthly gaming subscriptions and they've been doing very well. With the number of World of Warcraft, Starcraft and other craft users still growing, they are making nothing but money and they have so much that they hired Metallica to come and perform and BlizzCon 2014. That is ridiculously awesome. Even if you're not a much of a gamer, you'll want to tune in as they'll be streaming the event live.

We’re thrilled to announce that Metallica will be performing the closing concert at BlizzCon 2014, playing before a sold-out convention crowd on the night of November 8! If you didn’t score tickets to the show, don’t worry—you can still get a front-row seat from home with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket.

Microsoft Kills Nokia Officially

Nokia has been struggling for many years and while the purchase by Microsoft was supposed to breathe new life into the dying brand, it didn't. Microsoft has some compelling products, but they are often too late and too limited when they hit the shelves. Now that Microsoft has a new CEO with a new "prime directive", the Nokia brand is getting the axe - but they will keep the Lumia name. Introducing, Microsoft Lumia. I'm sure that will make their products better.

Microsoft's decision to drop the Nokia brand itself doesn't mean that Nokia is going away fully. Nokia still exists as a separate company without its phones business, and the Finnish firm now focuses on mapping and network infrastructure. Microsoft's choice to use Lumia as the Nokia replacement won't come as a surprise to many. Nokia's Windows Phone apps have been rebranded to Lumia recently, and holiday ads will be pushing Lumia instead of Nokia.

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.
