Sennheiser G4ME ONE Gaming Headset Review Online

We have just posted up our review of the Sennheiser G4ME ONE Gaming Headset. This is the followup product to the amazing PC 360, and it is a nice refresh. Sennheiser has released this top-of-the-line model to make every gamer jealous and while it isn't cheap, some things are just worth the price. Take a look at our review and see what has changed and if it is worth scrapping your current headset for the G4ME ONE. All the details are in our full review.

The G4ME ONE is a basic - although high quality - headset from a German-based company that wants to turn heads and make people take notice - not only because of the great sound, but the updated G4ME ONE headset also brings some amazing curb-appeal to the mix as well. That being said for $249, it will have to deliver a solid experience if they want to end up on the gamers short list.


Android TV

Google TV wasn't as much of a hit as they would have liked, and let's face it - this is a pretty crowded market. With things like Roku, Western Digital's LiveTV, Plex, Boxee, XBMC, Amazon FireTV and a ton of others, this is a market where in order to survive, you have to either have a killer feature, or a killer price. Google is trying again with "Android TV" and you can take a look at what they've been working on below.

Every so often, some enterprising computer company will claim they’ve finally fixed the TV. They’ll talk about how they’ve turned a dumb terminal into a smart computing platform that extends your work and play to a gigantic screen. Then, we’ll watch as the idea flops because they fail to line up content deals or wind up delivering a confusing, haphazard experience. That was the story of Google TV, which became the laughing stock of the industry after Google chairman Eric Schmidt bet that it would ship on the majority of new televisions in 2012. (He was sorely wrong.)

Google's Loon Circles Earth in 22 Days

Google is putting a lot of faith in balloons to bring internet to the dark parts of the earth that otherwise can't get broadband access. They are doing this with some pretty high-tech balloons, but let's face it - they are still balloons. The good news is that they seem to be successful and in only 22 days Google has managed to circumnavigate the globe with one of these. At this point, Facebooks drones aren't currently flying around and shooting them down though.

Google's earlier design for powering the Loon balloons used a single solar panel mounted flat on top, pointing up at the sun. However, the team discovered that a pair of panels, facing each other diagonally, would actually be more efficient when the balloons were at polar latitudes.

Intel Releases Minnowboard Max for $99

If you like tinkering with hardware and are a bit of a Linux enthusiast, you'll be interested to see that Intel is trying to get back in the game. They just announced and released their new "Minnowboard Max" board that has an integrated 1.46GHz Atom E3815 processor. This won't compete directly with the half-priced Raspberry Pi, but it will perhaps give Intel a player in the micro-PC hacking crowd. This little system will support Linux and Android and is available today.

The board’s schematics are also available for download and the Intel graphics chipset has open-source drivers so hackers can have their way with the board. While it doesn’t compete directly with the Raspberry Pi – the Pi is more an educational tool and already has a robust ecosystem – it is a way for DIYers to mess around in x86 architected systems as well as save a bit of cash. The system uses break-out boards called Lures to expand functionality.

April Fools

Every year the April Fools jokes get more and more elaborate. This year was no exception with Google, Samsung, Thinkgeek, and more coming up with videos of "April Fools Products". Directory Journal has come up with a list of 8 products that were just jokes but we all wish were actually real.

April Fools’ Day is a hoot for many yet often a tragedy for prank victims. It’s no secret that April Fools’ pranks can get out of hand, but what happens when tech companies promise a revolutionary product they can’t deliver only to have customers pleading for the actual product?

That answer is simple. The internet goes into an uproar begging for these products that don’t actually exist. Want to see what product ideas you’re missing out on? Check out some of these tech pranks of 2014 that consumers wish were real.

Google Wireless?

This isn't the first time "Google is starting a cell phone company" rumors have surfaced, but once again a new report has surfaced saying that Google has been trying to figure out ways to get into the wireless business. Google of course made headlines after they jumped into the broadband business with Google Fiber so also joining the wireless business might not be too far-fetched as they could then provide you with internet access at home and outside your house. BGR has the details.

Armed with a massive advertising business and an uncanny ability to collect and utilize data in amazing ways, Google has time and time again shown us that it’s not afraid to roll the dice and bet big when it comes to breaking into new categories.

Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile should all be on high alert, then, because Google is once again rumored to be toying with the idea of launching its own wireless service.

Comic Relief

Comic book lovers rejoice! Google Play Books has released a way to get your superhero fix in with buying more than one issue at a time! As celebration of this, there is a sale on certain comics and range from $.99 $3.00 apiece!

To celebrate, there's even a sale on the likes of Aquaman and Adventure Comicsfor $0.99 an issue, while a handful of others including Batman and Green Arrow are under $3 apiece.

Time to Kinect

Motion electronics is always intriguing to people and Microsoft has caught on to this with their Kinect; first used with the xbox 360. Up until now that sensor bar has been exclusive to the 360 but they are now opening this technology up to PC! MS has announced the prospective release to be scheduled for sometime later this summer!

As Redmond tells it, this self-publishing will happen "later this summer." Next summer (notice a theme here?), Microsoft is adding support for one of gaming's most pervasive dev toolkits to Kinect for Windows: the Unity engine -- tools developers already know the strengths and weaknesses of, which should bolster the app selection even further. Given that the Xbox One will see Unity support this year, this could mean that cross-platform apps and games are a distinct possibility. Or, maybe we'll get a cool new bank account manager instead.”
