EpicGear Thunderouz Gaming Headset

We have just posted up our review of the EpicGear Thunderouz Gaming Headset. This is a mid-price headset that offers quite a lot in the way of performance and features. While it isn't your day-to-day headset for commuting, it's designed with gamers in mind and it accomplishes that very nicely. For gaming and popular music, this headset is very solid and should be considered. Check our review for all the details.

This is a great headset if you game and listen to most popular music today. I found that after switching back to my Sennheiser PC350SE’s, I was missing the much heavier bass from the Thunderouz when re-exploring my collection of long forgotten 2Pac and Dr Dre.


Is Twitter 'toast'?

Twitter isn't have a great month (or year) as their stock continues to drop, top executives keep leaving, and analysts are saying your company is 'toast' and your rapidly falling stock is overvalued still. Basically its been a tough 2016 for Twitter and 2017 is looking like it could be even worse unless something magically happens and brings users and investors back. CNBC takes a closer at Twitter and predicts why they are 'toast'. 

Twitter is "toast" as a company and the stock is not even worth $10, according to a research note published Tuesday, following the departure of another top executive at the social media service.

The microblogging platform's chief technology officer, Adam Messinger, tweeted that he would leave the company and "take some time off", while Josh McFarland, vice president of product at Twitter, also said he was exiting the company. Both executives announced their departure on Tuesday.

PC gaming market worth $36 billion in 2016

I guess the PC gaming market isn't dead (even though it has been predicted time and time again that it would be dead soon). According to a new study, the gaming market it 2016 was a $91 billion dollar market with the PC gaming market making up $36 billion of that. In the gaming market it was of course League of Legends that topped the list of most profitable titles bringing in $1.7 billion dollars of revenue. PCGamer has the full details on how PC gaming isn't dying and is actually very profitable and healthy.

Gaming "is growing at tremendous rates and incorporating new media and platforms, expanding its reach," the report says. "Going far beyond the traditional 'gamer' dynamic, the games and playable media audience is now one of the most valuable and engaged demographics, and brand owners are paying attention." 

Rogue One Resurrects Actors with CGI

If you want to see how Rogue One manages to resurrect actors from earlier films using CGI, you'll have to click the link below, but there are many spoilers. The news here is that while CGI done right can really pull out pieces of history into a modern film, the downside is that it will likely be used too much, distort the reality of the film and in the end be more of a drawback than an asset. Still, if you've seen the new Star Wars film, you'll know what I mean. Comments below are always welcome.

You probably didn't expect many surprises in Rogue One, the first Star Wars "side story" which details how, exactly, the Rebel Alliance acquired the plans for the Death Star. Indeed, the entire film seems to exist just to fill in a bit of background detail for A New Hope, our first Luke Skywalker adventure. But it turns out Rogue One is much more than an elaborate bit of fan service. It's surprisingly harrowing, genuinely moving and it'll likely go down as a milestone for digital-actor resurrection.

Sorriest Tech Companies of 2016

There have been a few wins in tech during 2016, but there have been some major disasters as well. Some companies managed bad PR with style and class, and then there were a few that struggled. Samsung tried, but overall the Note 7 was a raging disaster and Facebook had a glitch that killed millions of users (in theory). Take a look below and find out which company was the sorriest.

Microsoft couldn’t get out of its culturally-clueless way in 2016. Samsung apologized over and over for its flaming Note7 fiasco. HP, T-Mobile, Facebook and pretty much every other big name in tech was forced to issue a public apology or more during the year, as public relations pros earned their money (or not) to salvage their employer or client’s reputation – for the time being.

How to Suck at Apps - Be Nintendo

First of all, no one can deny the success of Pokemon Go. That being said, while the IP is Nintendo, the design and production was not Nintendo. It was 3rd Party and even though I'm not a fan of the game, it's a solid win. Moving on to Nintendo's own Super Mario Run, they release exclusively for iOS (until 2017 when it will launch on Android), and charge a heft price tag as there are no in-game purchases. So far, I'm not hating that much. Now however, the announce that there will be no additional content produced for the game. That $10 you spent gets you everthing you see and nothing more. That's not the way to reward people who spent money and it will reflect on their next game sales I'm sure.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nintendo has no plans for “additional content, either free or paid” in Super Mario Run. That information comes directly from a company representative.

Worst Christmas Tech Presents Ever

If you're branded the "tech guy" in your family, they've probably tried to show you appreciation by buying you something tech-related from Christmas. I know there are some physically disabled tech's that have received fitness bands and I once got a box of 5.25-inch floppy disks. I'm sure there are some of you that may have received a Galaxy Note 7 as well. All were probably well-intended, but somehow fell horribly short. Please share here and then go read the comments at the link below as I'm sure there will be some gems.

The problem is that many of our friends and family don't follow the ins and outs of tech with quite the same gusto as you or I do. They may well know that you've got your heart set on a beautiful new iPad, but that can leave you with the excruciating challenge of feigning delight when you unwrap the $59 Android 2.3 tablet plucked from Best Buy's bargain bin, which they thought was pretty much the same thing.
