More Halo 4 Details

Microsoft has let some information slip regarding system requirements for Halo 4 set to be released this fall.  It appears that you'll need "at least" 8GB of flash storage plugged into your Xbox 360 - or a Hard Drive.  This makes the 4GB Kinect bundle a little lean and I'm glad I never sprung for that one.  Maybe Microsoft should up the bundle to a 16GB version just so people can play their game?  Joystiq has more.

As seems to be becoming tradition for the series, Halo 4 will require quite a bit of storage to play. Specifically, notes that players will need "at least an 8GB USB flash drive or an Xbox 360 Hard Drive" in order to play Halo 4's multiplayer mode. Furthermore, the hard drive option is "highly recommended" for those seeking an "optimal" experience.

Odds and Ends

We're halfway through the week and we've got a few odds and ends for everyone to enjoy on this 4th of July.  If you're sitting around wishing you had more space on your mobile device, MEGATechNews says theKingston Wi-Drive 64GB should help you store stuff wirelessly on your Android or Apple device.

Speaking of mobile devices, check out the affordable HTC One S Android smartphone over at HardwareHeaven.  If you've got a smartphone, you no doubt struggle to keep it powered up if you use it for extended periods.  That's where things like the Kensington Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger at NikKTech come in handy.  If you're on the road more often, Solar-powered batteries are not a bad idea - check out the Powerfreakz Evolution 3000 Portable Solar Charger at eTeknix to find out if this one is decent.

If you want to get your summer memories off your camera - and a bunch of other devices, a card reader is a good way to go.  TweakTown looks at the NZXT Aperture that also features a couple of USB 3.0 ports.  On a cloudy day, you can catch up on your photos and maybe stay inside and watch some 3D TV with these XPAND YOUniversal Electronic 3D eyewear reviewed by MissingRemote.

Summertime and music go hand in hand - maybe that's why the Microlab H21 2.0 Bluetooth Speaker set at HardwareLook is appealing to me right now.  If you are a musician, the BEHRINGER Guitar Link at TechwareLabs might have some appeal.  It's a great way to get audio in your PC for sure. 

Strange Weather

Not sure how this weather could affect the technology sector, but it seems pretty extreme.  Up to 100 inches of rain!  WTSnap!

Microsoft Secures Xbox8

In an interesting move against a cybersquatter, Microsoft managed to wrangle a few domain names that may have to do with upcoming product launches.  The most interesting of these is the and  This may mean nothing much, but it's fun to speculate as to what the next Xbox could be called.  We've all assumed for a long time that it's going to be the 720... Time will tell.

The inclusion of "Xbox 8" may have just been a matter of Microsoft gaining control over anything that looks as if it should be theirs. But its inclusion alongside other names that are easier to explain sparked speculation online Tuesday about what the name might mean.

Windows 8 Upgrade - $40

Microsoft has taken a slice from the competition and has made the upgrade to Windows 8 less painful on your wallet.  This time around they are expecting the upgrade to be $39.99 if you do it online and then $69.99 if you need a physical copy in a store.  I like the strategy and believe that there will be a lot more people upgrading for this price.

We've also got some more details on the upgrade process for older versions of Windows. An upgrade assistant will help users migrate files, settings, and apps from Windows 7, files and settings from Windows Vista, and files only from Windows XP. As before. After the upgrade, you can add Windows Media Center for free through the “add features” option.
