Amazon Heads Up Games

Amazon's new Fire phone has lead to some new things for the web retailer: one such change is the new Amazon exclusive games that use their dynamic perspective to look around corners and solve puzzles. This may not be a deal breaker for buying this phone over the other but it is interesting.

  • Use the Amazon Fire’s ground-breaking Dynamic Perspective to solve crafty physics puzzles and triumph in frenetic melee battles
  • Use Dynamic Perspective to peek around corners, and to plan your attacks to release devastating chained combos.

Twitching in the Right Direction

There are many people who like to watch streamed gameplay for many video games and a lot of these people turn to Twitch. If you are a user of Twitch then you will be happy to know that they have altered their android app in such a way that you can access the most popular games in an orderly fashion. This new revamp is also made to work very well on tablets. This new app also includes features for social sharing as well as a fresh upgrade to the visuals.

You’ll immediately notice that the app has changed a lot, visually.  Our design team created a new, modern interface that looks fantastic. I think they did an amazing job. If you have a tablet, you’ll also see that there have been numerous optimizations to make using the app much more enjoyable.

Silicon Power 32GB OTG Flash Drive

We have just posted up our review of the Silicon Power 32GB X20 USB2.0 OTG Flash Drive. That is a long name for a little device that acts as a standard flash drive and then flips and does double-duty and interfaces with your Android or Windows phone. If you need to takes some files with you and are running short of space on your phone, make sure you check out our review for all the details.

After trying this miniature OTG 32GB Flash drive, I have to admit that I like this little gadget. Not only is it awesome for my collection, but it is super handy as well. I can transfer files to my phone without finding a cable, and best yet, I can take a bunch of movies with me when I travel without taking an additional device with more storage.

Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S Review

We have just posted up our review of the Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S CPU Coolers. These are a couple of high-performance monoliths from Noctua that will rival quite a few entry-level liquid cooling kits. The NH-U14S is a beast as it features a massive 15cm fan and you will want to check your case to see if it will fit. For all the details - and why you should consider one of these, read our review for all the details.

The CPU cooling market has really changed since we started BCCHardware. CPU's no longer require big aftermarket coolers and most people are satisfied with stock cooling, but that hasn't changed the way Noctua looks at cooling and they haven't cut corners as a result. They just keep consistently pumping out coolers that are quiet, high quality, and can offer up performance that can compete with anyone.

Windows 8.1 Update 2 Coming Soon?

Over the past few weeks, there have been rumors about Windows 8.1 Update 2 and it looks like it might not be that far off. According to sources, the update could roll out on August 12 as part of patch Tuesday. I'm REALLY hoping that the update start menu that we've seen floating around on Windows 8.1 Pro will actually make the update. Please?

The image you see above comes from a Russian source and is said to be authentic, although, we cannot confirm that image is genuine Microsoft documentation. But, based on everything we had heard prior to this document surfacing, it aligns perfectly to that information.

Pending Doom

For those of you who played the original Doom games and very much enjoyed them, you've been waiting for what seems like millenia for the next sequel, take heart! ID Software has displayed the fourth game under the Doom title at the QuakeCon conference this year! Although there are no release dates as of this time we do know that the title will be simply, "Doom" and that the game is an original story. The game is being released for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

At this year's QuakeCon conference, id Software showed off the new game, finally detailing what exactly we can expect. It focuses on fast-paced combat and it takes place on Mars, outside of a Union Aerospace Corporation building. You'll be using melee combat a lot, and combat is brutal. Id is designing crazy enemies and weapons, and you'll be able to carry around a large arsenal "all at the same time," executive producer Marty Stratton said.

Button to Buy

Have you ever been looking at your Facebook feed and wanted to be able to buy a product you saw displayed there without having to go to another site? Well, now you can! They are testing the new "buy button" which will provide you with the means of buying that object you desire by only using your credit card info linked with your Facebook account! For the time being Facebook will not be charging businesses for this service but it has not been ruled out.

Rather than clicking away to a merchant’s site, the Buy button lets you complete the entire purchase flow within Facebook, which could boost conversion rates and endear retailers to the social network. You can use a credit card you have on file with Facebook, enter new payment details and save them for future use, or just checkout and not store your payment info. The feature is privacy safe, and Facebook won’t pass payment details on to other advertisers.

Canada Catches a Break

As far as media goes, Canadians seem to get shafted with the worst or just get everything later than everybody else, but that is about to change! Netflix Canada and Disney have drawn up an arrangement beginning with 2015 theatrically released films so that Netflix Canada members can watch most productions by Disney roughly eight months after their release!

Beginning with 2015 theatrically released feature films, Netflix Canada members can enjoy new titles from Disney Live Action, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, Disneynature and DreamWorks Studios. Approximately eight months after titles leave theaters - quicker than has traditionally been the case on premium pay TV - Canadian Netflix subscribers will be able to watch new releases from The Walt Disney Studios in the home and on the go.
