HyperX Cloud Stinger Review

We have just posted up our review of the HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset. This headset promises a lot of features for only a little money, but often these promises are too good to be true. Take a look at our review to see if it delivers or if your money would be best spent elsewhere.

In looking back on this headset one can’t help but be in awe of the great quality this headset has to offer at such an affordable price. The signature memory foam padding along with the light weight make for a combination that allows for long extended hours of gaming with a very comfortable experience. From time to time I almost forgot I was wearing the headset...

Lenovo Yoga Book (Android) Review

The Lenovo Yoga Book is an interseting concept. The keyboard is a giant touch-sensitive piece of glass and the machine itself comes in Android and Windows flavors. The review today is of the Android version and being that it's powered by an Atom x5-Z8550 processor, it has plenty of power to run the mobile OS. Things that separate this 2-in-1 appart from the competition also include a nice full HD IPS LED touch-screen, a Book Pad, AnyPen the Halo keyboard and more.

AnTuTu's results pretty much explains themselves. The machine is great at multitasking and handles graphics well. The game that I'll typically test out graphics performance with is Injustice: Gods Among Us. It's a pretty heavy game and, well, it's a lot of fun. I had no problems playing it on the Yoga Book.

Phil Spencer Wants Nintendo Games on Xbox

Phil Spencer is the big boss of Xbox over at Microsoft and he loves Mario. Not that he's "coming out" or anything like that. He just sees that Nintendo has one of the strongest first-party game portfolio's and he'd love to see some Mario make it's way to the Xbox. Nintendo has a touch choice here. With such a strong tie to the much-loved Mario, they need to keep the games to their own console - if they want to sell consoles - but at the same time, more games sales = more revenue. Interesting interview linked below.

"I’d love to see Mario on Xbox," Phil says enthusiastically. "As someone who’s been in this industry and played games forever, I’ll still say it: Nintendo has the strongest first-party of anybody. They’re just fantastic and the memories that they have instilled in so many of us, who’ve played their games and had those delightful experiences, having those on Xbox would be great.

AOC Claims Fastest Gaming Monitor Title

Monitors are an amazing deal right now. There are a bunch of 4K displays that are relatively cheap as well as some high performance and high quality displays that have really become very affordable. When it comes to high-performance displays, AOC has taken the performance crown (in terms of specifications anyhow) with their AG251FZ display. It claims to have a 240Hz refresh rate and Grey-to-Grey response times of 1ms. It's worth checking out at least.

The AOC AGON AG251FZ comes with a 130mm height-adjustable 'Ergo Dial' ergonomic stand which can also tilt (-3.5/21.5 degrees), swivel (-10/20 degrees), or pivot to portrait orientation. Alternatively the monitor can be fitted to a 100 x 100 VESA mount. For portability the AGON AG251FZ includes a carry handle.

Saumsung to exit PC market?

The rumor of the week is that Samsung is looking to get out of the PC market with a sale of their PC division to Lenovo. Samsung has had a tough time gaining market share in an already crowded PC market and Lenovo has gained a fair amount of share thanks to acquisitions (Lenovo bought IBM's PC division back in 2004). The deal is still a rumor and would take a while to gain approvals, however, it is being rumored that Samsung's PC division could fetch close to a billion dollars. Neowin has the full story.

Samsung is reportedly getting ready to sell off its struggling PC business to Lenovo, and retire from the personal computer market altogether. The deal would see the largest PC vendor become even bigger, and comes just months after Samsung sold its printer division.

Most Profitable Android Brand

Thanks to the recent struggles by Samsung, there is a new brand topping the charts for the most profitable Android brand. Huawei has displaced Samsung and is now the most profitable Android brand thanks to a nice $200 million profit in the last quarter. There is tons of competition in the Android market but Huawei has done a great job of coming up with products that don't cost an arm and a leg and are making a nice profit as a result. ZDNet has the full story.

Huawei Technologies has displaced Samsung Electronics to become the second most profitable smartphone supplier in the world for the quarter ended September 30, followed by two other Chinese brands Vivo and Oppo, a latest report by research firm Strategy Analytics shows.

Black Friday Deals

Black Friday is only a few hours away and chances are good you've got a list of an item or two that you're hoping will drop to some crazy low price. Wired has a list of some of the best deals they've found so far and will be updating it as the offers come in. Some are available now, some you have to wait until midnight for. Good luck.

Don't want to deal with aggressive shoppers and long lines? No problem. Kick back on your couch, plug in your laptop and shop from the comfort of your living room. The only waiting you have to do is for your package to arrive.

Google offers discounts for Black Friday

If you were hoping to pick up a Google product on Black Friday you'll be happy to hear they've announced some modest price drops on their new stuff. If you are in the market for the Google Home, you'll see that price drop from $129 down to $99. If you are looking for the Google Pixel, there are a few offers that will drop the price a little (if you are a Verizon user). Chromecast will also see a $10 drop and you should be able to find them for $25 tomorrow. The drops aren't crazy, but it might be enough to convince you to pull the trigger as chances are good you won't see lower prices for the rest of the year. The Verge has more details.

Google is well on its way from being a company synonymous with search and the web to a brand name well known for its hardware products. We’re now familiar with the Chromecast name; the streaming stick has been Google’s Trojan horse into the living room, selling millions of units and establishing the search giant’s software as a viable media nexus. Now, there’s the Google Home smart speaker to compete with Amazon’s Echo, as well the company’s new flagship Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.

Bullets vs. Propeller is Slow Motion

In earlier days of aeriel combat, timing was required to shoot bullets between the blades of a spinning propeller. The Slow Mo Guys show us how it's done.
