Zotac Introduces Mini-PC with GTX 960

Zotac has been making some pretty awesome PCs for a while now and with the latest generation of chips from Intel now in the wild, they've updated their Magnus EN970 to include an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 as well as a Core i5-5200U. It will also support 16GB of DDR3L, and 802.11ac networking. It's smaller than a WiiU and has enough power to play pretty much any current game on the market today.

Although this may not be the most robust unit on the market, it certainly packs quite a bit of hardware for a mini PC. While Zotac has not listed the sizing specifications for the unit, we have reached out to get proper measurements and can only assume that it is similar to its previous ZBOX units.

Macbook Air on Road to Extinction

Apple introduced the Macbook Air a while back to much praise from the enthusiastic Apple-oriented masses. It really hasn't been around too long, but it appears that it is being replaced with the new Macbook Pro - which is essentially an Macbook Air. The inside of the Macbook Pro is about as big as a Nexus 5, so the Air is really just an overpriced tablet with a keyboard at this point.

Apple is not a company that can be accused of doing things thoughtlessly, and the decision to leave the Air’s display at the lower quality and resolution must be taken as a deliberate one. In other words, Apple is comfortable with keeping the Air as a technological straggler in its lineup. That leaves us with a choice of two most likely scenarios: either the Air is destined for a future overhaul and its first redesign in five years or it has no future at all.

Microsoft Cares (Wants You to Use Edge Only)

Microsoft cares. Microsoft cares about you. They care if you're using Bing and really don't want you using Firefox or Chrome. Edge is a great browser and they want you to use it. With Windows 10, there are the occasional popup that reminds you that 'Microsoft recommends Microsoft Edge for Windows 10'. Of course they do - they care and really, REALLY want you to use Edge and Bing. I guess you can't blame them.

"Microsoft Edge was designed exclusively for Windows 10 with features and functionality that enhance the browsing experience, such as Cortana, Web Note and Quick answers,” a Microsoft spokeswoman told VentureBeat.

Wozniak Loves the New "Steve Jobs" Movie

Recently the new "Steve Jobs" movie premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and the great Steve Wozniak said that he actually liked. it. Wozniak is not known as a film critic, but let's face it - some of the movie about Jobs have been more about selling a script rather than documenting his life. This latest film sees to embody Jobs and Wozniak says they nailed it. I'm actually interested in this one now.

When I caught up with him Wozniak told me that, unlike the Jobs  biopic with Ashton Kutcher, this one is totally authentic. “I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others (including Rogen’s dead-on portrayal of Wozniak), not actors playing them, I give full credit to Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin for getting it so right,” he enthusiastically told me.

Spider Clock Should be Killed

If you hate spiders, you probably shouldn't get this L'Epee 1839 timepiece. It's a clock that is shaped like a spider. Thankfully this clock doesn't come and find you and wake you up with an alarm, but it still looks ridiculously creepy hanging on the wall. I think I know a few people that would try and kill it.

Inside (and outside) the body is L'Epée's eight-day movement, redesigned to fit the shape of the spider's body. The watch's escapement has been rotated 90 degrees to form the spider's head, and the mainspring barrel sits at the rear of the abdomen. The face of the clock is an unusual dome shape, with the hours and minutes inscribed around the rim and the hands curved over the top.

The cheapest Fire Tablet is already a mere $100, but with this price drop on a new tablet - they are priced below Kindle readers and will sell like absolute hot-cakes.

A report from the Wall Street Journal has now revealed that Amazon is planning to launch a 6-inch tablet priced at $50 before the holiday season. The cheapest Fire tablet available currently retails at $99.99 and features a 6-inch screen as well.

Google Unveils new Nexus on September 29

Google is all set to release another Nexus device here around the end of September and there is still a lot of speculation as to how many devices, who is actually making the device and what is powering the new hardware. The rumor is that Google will announce two new handsets in San Fransisco later this month. While there isn't a lot of information, there is not a lot of hype either. It seems that we are arriving in the low-hype smartphone era.

Both of Google's new devices have been caught on camera recently: the smaller 5.2-inch model, built by LG, was spotted in mid-August; and the larger 5.7-inch flagship, being manufactured by Huawei, appeared in spyshots last week, which revealed a rather unusual rear design for the handset.
