Unreal Engine 4 is Free for Everyone

The business model for Epic Games certainly has changed. There was a time when license for the Unreal Engine was over $1 Million and now the latest version is absolutely free. This is great new for casual game developers - as well as mainstream publishers as it will allow them to make games cheaper. Ok, while games won't be cheap, it will at least ensure that a lot of people use the same platform and that modifications should be pretty easy to do.

Sweeney also states that everyone who paid for an Unreal Engine 4 yearly subscription will get $30 worth of credit free to spend in the Unreal market place, which is one heck of a deal. All in all, its an epic (pun intended) win for the company considering that the deal is bound to attract new Unity developers and since the tool is incredibly flexible to use, we're likely to see some interesting games in the future as well.

Google Announces Cellular Network

As Mobile World Congress kicks off, the announcements have started flying. One of the biggest announcements with the least amount of details is that Google may be entering the cellular game. There is no word yet if they will be using the voice network or if it will be data only. With the current package of Google services, you don't really need voice minutes anyhow.

"We don't intend to be a network operator at scale," he said. "Our goal here is to drive a set of innovations which we think the ecosystem should evolve and hopefully will get traction. Again, we will do it on a small enough scale so that, just like Nexus devices, people see what we are doing and hopefully carrier partners think our ideas are good."

Trendnet Powerline 1200Mbps AV2 Adapter Kit

We have just posted up our review of the Trendnet TPL-420E2K Powerline 1200Mbps AV2 kit. This is very speedy kit that gets great performance thanks to MIMO (multi-in, multi-out) features and is by far the fastest kit we've seen to date. It's faster than many wireless networks and doesn't have the same interference issues to deal with. If you need to really stretch your network, check our review for all the details.

The TPL-420E2K Kit is the fourth kit from Trendnet that I've looked at and it way more impressive than I expected for a powerline kit and is the first time I've really been impressed with this technology. Short range performance is very impressive, thanks to the full MIMO feature set. Also, it holds good performance over some crazy long distances.

Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Hands-On

Mobile World Congress is ramping up and Samsung has finally completely unveiled their Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices. From the leaks that we saw prior to their official unveiling, we knew pretty much everything about the hardware, but now people are able to get some hands-on to see and feel how they look and work. Things aren't all that groundbreaking on the S6, but the S6 Edge looks pretty slick.

Curiously, while the S6 Edge goes one better than Samsung's own Galaxy Note Edge, released last year - which has a display that curves around just one edge of the device - the display 'overhangs' on the new device appear to be considerably less functional than on the Note Edge.

MicroSD hits 200GB

SanDisk is pushing small form factor storage farther than I thought possible. When MicroSD cards hit 8GB it was ground-breaking and now they are making some pretty impressive 200GB cards. These should be available right away and if you have compatibility for SDXC cards, you'll be good to go... 200GB - in something the size of a fingernail. Wow.

“We continue to push technology boundaries to deliver record-breaking solutions that transform the way consumers use their mobile devices,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk. “By focusing on achieving new capacity and speed milestones, we are able to deliver trusted mobile memory solutions that give consumers the freedom to never stop capturing, saving, or sharing – with the benefit of fast speeds to transfer it all quickly.”

Mobile World Congress 2015

Smartphone fans wait is almost over as Mobile World Congress is starting Sunday and it looks like this year is going to be full of announcements of new products. Most of the big guys will be showing off some thing new and The Verge has come up with a list of things we will hopefully see next week.

Every year, tens of thousands of reporters, analysts, and suited-up businesspeople descend upon Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress trade show. Mobile World Congress, or MWC if you're in the know, is the largest trade show for mobile technology: phones, networks, hotspots, infrastructure, and more phones.

Lenovo's Sorry

Lenovo is still doing damage control after their 'Superfish' problem. Lenovo has now announced that anyone who was affected will get a free 6 month subscription to McAfee LiveSafe which I guess is better than nothing. Lenovo has also said that they will be 'significantly reducing' the amount of preloaded software that will be coming on your next new PC, which just might be the best news. Reuters has the story.

Lenovo Group Ltd said it will offer users of its PCs pre-installed with "Superfish" software a free 6-month subscription to McAfee LiveSafe service to remove security concerns.

The Chinese computer and smartphone maker's announcement comes a week after the U.S. government advised Lenovo customers to remove "Superfish", saying it makes users vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Lenovo also issued a press release promising a cleaner, safer PC in the future.
