NZXT DOKO PC Streaming Device Review

We have just posted up our review of the NZXT DOKO Streaming Device. NZXT claims that this allows you to stream your PC "Anywhere" - on your home network of course. It streams your entire computer experience, so it's much more useful than a Chromecast, Steam In-Home streaming, Roku and more. Check out our review and see if it lives up to the promises or if it falls flat on it's face.

I was even unfortunate enough to try a game of Unreal Tournament, but as you will have deduced it was futile as it was a beast to play, somewhat reminiscent of playing a game on an older computer! I even tried connecting the DOKO directly to my PC to remove any possible failings, but got similar results.

You CAN Actually Curve a Bullet

In the past few years we have seen awesome developments in combat technology. Now we see yet another piece of amazing technology Darpa’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance or EXACTO program has developed a self steering bullet. As you can imagine this will help to make those long distance precision shots.

DARPA's Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program, which developed a self-steering bullet to increase hit rates for difficult, long-distance shots, completed in February its most successful round of live-fire tests to date. An experienced shooter using the technology demonstration system repeatedly hit moving and evading targets. Additionally, a novice shooter using the system for the first time hit a moving target.

Skyrim Causes a Little Steam on Steam

As many are aware, Valve has tried to add a pay for mods system to Skyrim mods in the workshop. Steam has rescinded this and will be refunding anybody who paid money for mods their cash. This is due to the mass disdain for the new system held by the modding community of Skyrim.

To help you understand why we thought this was a good idea, our main goals were to allow mod makers the opportunity to work on their mods full time if they wanted to, and to encourage developers to provide better support to their mod communities. We thought this would result in better mods for everyone, both free & paid. We wanted more great mods becoming great products, like Dota, Counter-strike, DayZ, and Killing Floor, and we wanted that to happen organically for any mod maker who wanted to take a shot at it.

Best Buy Goes Bananas over Apple Pay

Paying for things online can be a bit of a pain, made even more painful if you are using an App. Apple customers can rest easy when it comes to the Best Buy App. They have now allowed users to use Apple pay to purchase those essential electronic devices. So far this service is only allowed in the Best Buy App, but hopefully they will allow it in stores soon.

For now, Apple Pay transactions are limited to Best Buy's app, but the companies expect consumers to be able to use the mobile payment method for in-store purchases later this year, the retailer announced Monday. Best Buy was a major supporter of the Merchant Customer Exchange, or MCX -- a consortium of retailers led by Walmart that has developed a competing mobile-payments system.

Sennheiser RS 175 Wireless Home Audio Headphones

We have just posted up our review of the Sennheiser RS 175 Home Audio Wireless Headphones. These are designed to hook up to your TV and fill your ears (and yours alone) with the sweet sound of whatever-you-want while they block out all the annoying distractions around you. They promise great audio quality and combine that with great battery life and tremendous range. Take a look at our review for all the details.

The volume, bass, and surround controls are all located on the right side as well - and are easy to reach.  A nice touch is the raised plus and minus symbols (for audio volume) and this makes finding the buttons easy when wearing the headphones. The sound quality was top notch, which is what I except from Sennheiser. With crisp, clean sound that did not distort - even at high volumes, Far Cry 3's jungle came alive.

Black Ops 3 is A Little Pricey

There are more details surfacing regarding Black Ops 3 and like scum on a pond, more and more things surface. While there are some new game modes with this release, one thing that is pretty hard to swallow is the price. Apparently Activision thinks that Call of Duty is so awesome that gamers will be happy to shell out over $115 (with tax) on a game that has less new gameplay and is still peer-to-peer on PC. 

Money Hungry Buggers

Activision, may you rot in the piles of your filthy money.

An Ear for Security

Throughout the last five years we have seen leaps in security for our personal devices. Lately we have seen some fingerprint scanners built into phones, although they haven’t really been that great they have been the face of progress nonetheless, and with “face” mentioned that brings us to Yahoo Labs and their new project; the bodyprint. The idea behind this is to use other parts of your body to unlock your phone, such as your ear or a handprint or a fist.

A team of researchers from Yahoo Labs have created a new technology called ‘Bodyprint’ that turns your smartphone’s touchscreen display into a biometric scanner. Since mobile devices’ touchscreens have lower input resolutions compared to those found in the iPhone 6 or Galaxy S6’s home buttons, Bodyprint requires you to scan a different part of your body, whether that be your ear, fist, five fingers or palm.

Black Ops 3 is Coming

For those of us a little excited about the prospect of a new Black Ops title being introduced into the Call Of Duty franchise, there is a glimpse into the upcoming title. This view is telling us of single player, multiplayer, co-op and my personal favorite, zombies. Hopefully they keep up the standard of the other Black Ops titles.

A new in-game screenshot for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been leaked, and new details on all the modes included with Black Ops 3 has been revealed. Black Ops 3 will feature a Campaign mode with an all new Co-Op campaign, new Multiplayer with new movement system, and Zombies with its own story line out of the box.
